The Red Mansions online slot machine from IGT Interactive is one of several ‘Multiway Xtra’ slots from this leading online casino software provider. The Multiway Xtra slots basically have 5 reels and up to as many as 1024 ways to win per spin. Some of the other great Multiway Xtra slots from IGT include Treasures of Troy, White Orchid, Pamplona, Siberian Storm, Fire Opals, Garden Party, Day of the Dead and Sumatran Storm.

Red Mansions has an Asian/Oriental/Culture theme with an average 92.90% to 95.03% return to player payout percentage rate (aka RTP %). We recommend playing with the Multiway Xtra feature activated when playing on this slot because it will give you more chances of winning per spin. It may cost a little extra per spin, but it’s definitely worth it. Alternatively, this feature can be switched off which means that each spin would be played with just 40 paylines active instead.

The top paying symbol on the reels is the Geisha and the Wild Symbol is the Temple. This Wild Symbol will only ever appear on reels 2, 3 and 4 (the three centre reels) and it will substitute all symbols except for the Bonus Symbols. The Bonus Symbols will only ever land on reel 3 (the centre reel).

For the main Bonus Round to trigger all you need is a minimum of 2 Bonus Symbols to land on the centre reel from just 1 spin and you will be awarded 10 Free Spins. If 3 Bonus Symbols happen to land on this centre reels from just 1 spin you will be awarded 15 Free Spins and 4 Bonus Symbols showing up will award a maximum of 20 Free Spins. During this bonus round, 2 or more of the Bonus Symbols reappearing on the centre reel at any point will re-trigger even more Free Spins.

It doesn’t seem to take forever for this Bonus Round to trigger and it seems to be quite generous more often than not. However, there are no other bonus rounds available, which is quite possibly why this free spins bonus triggers so often. If you want to play on this slot right now, you would need to head over to a top UK online casino called Mr Green Casino. It should also start to appear in more fully licensed UK online casinos as we move deeper into 2014.
