Chinese slots are all the rage these days, as the online betting market expands into the Asian markets. This is expected, as Baccarat has helped make Macau the largest gaming market in the world, and slots are getting more appreciation there. Microgaming has hopped on the bandwagon, and their new Serenity slot is the latest example. Complete with a peaceful theme, Serenity is a nice game that is worthy of your time.
Serenity is a 5 reel, 15 payline video slot that takes place on a riverside in China. The game has a mountain backdrop along with hills and a village. symbols in the game are a mixture of standard symbols alongside Chinese ones. These include 10, Jack, Queen, King, Ace, purple lantern, rectangle lantern, and round lantern. There is also an endless knot, palace, and wild symbol.
Features in the game include wild symbols, scatter symbols, and free spins, alongside a Lantern Bonus, which awards cash in a Pick'em game. The game has a posted return to player (RTP) percentage of 96.6%, which is considered to be very high for an online slot.
The game experience with Serenity is oddly relaxing for an online slot. The game just oozes peace, and manages to have you feel laid back. Interestingly, the game is exciting when the bonus features pop up, as you're anticipating those lamp bonuses.
I really enjoyed Serenity, and I think that you will too if you end up giving it a spin. While the game isn't as sharp as some newer games, it does look and play pretty nicely and is one of the better Chinese games you'll find. Make sure to give it a spin for free before you opt to play for real money, as its certainly got the possibility of being polarizing in its own right.
