Sometimes it is necessary to slow down and enjoy the moment. This is exactly what Microgaming’s new slot machine aims at. Yes, it’s kind of confusing when you think about it. Don’t you want a slot machine to excite you and get your adrenaline pumping? In most cases, this is a fairly accurate assumption, but have you ever tried a quiet slot game where the money comes with the relaxation? If not, try Serenity, a game with oriental touches.
The first thing you can expect is a sense of calm due to the distinct oriental theme. Chinese lanterns, flowers and Gao Pai symbols are set against a peaceful natural backdrop. You almost want to meditate before you start playing. There are no distinct lines between the reels and everything seems to fit perfectly. But why on earth are you playing it? Why take the time to place a bet other than to relax while watching the reels fall into place? Well, apparently quiet goes hand in hand with great power.
There is nothing special about the basics of slot machines. It is based on the typical 5-reel, 15 payline system with a minimum bet of 0.15p. For those who feel more comfortable than others, the maximum bet is $75.
The first feature is triggered when you get three or more bonus symbols, or the lantern bonus game if you prefer. These symbols can appear anywhere. From there you will be taken to a screen where you must choose 12 lanterns. As you can guess, each lantern contains a special prize. The number of picks you get depends on the number of bonus symbols you get when you trigger the game.
The second great feature is that it automatically triggers the free spins round when you land three or more scatter symbols. You will get 10 free spins with a x3 multiplier on each payline. On top of the multiplier, you can unlock more free spins on top of the Lantern bonus game.
From a gaming standpoint, this is not one of the highest paying slots, not because you can’t win anything, but big wins rarely happen. You have the chance to win up to 1600x your stake, but get used to smaller payouts on this bet. In other words, this slot is more suitable for new players who want to take their time.
This isn’t the first Asian-themed slot, and it definitely won’t be the last, but Microgaming has generally done a good job. The soundtrack is great, the graphics are great, and the bonus game doesn’t disappoint.
