Shortly after Yggdrasil announced their new slot – Nirvana – was due to be released at the end of November, Microgaming decided to release an Eastern-inspired title of their own. Say hello to Serenity, yet another slot game which contains Chinese lanterns. If this slot is going to stand out from the rest of its kind it’ll have to pack a serious punch, otherwise we might find it languishing at the bottom of hard-to-find casino catalogues gathering dust.
At a Glance
Serenity looks to be just another slot making use of the Asian theme. It features the 3×5 layout that Microgaming appears to be comfortable with and there are 15 selectable paylines.
Symbols range from playing card symbols 10, J, Q, K and A to various Chinese lanterns, which are nicely detailed. The slot also contains a lantern bonus symbol, scatters and wilds.
The music is an ambient Asian ditty punctuated by bursts of strings on winning spins, and the animation is pretty tight – standard Microgaming traits thus far.
Lantern Bonus: Hit three or more lantern bonus symbols on adjacent reels and you’ll trigger, wait for it, the lantern bonus! Shock. The aim is to choose up to five lanterns from a selection in the hopes of hitting big cash prizes.
- Free Spins: Hit three or more scatter symbols anywhere on the reels and daylight becomes night for your ten free spins. Each win in the free spins bonus mode is tripled. That’s cool.
