Are those beauties really from Shanghai? Hmm, I wonder, but they do look beautiful nonetheless, hehehe. Well, comparable to the beauties in the Asian Beauties game, also under Microgaming. Why under? Because this Shanghai Beauty game was actually created and done by MahiGaming, the same provider for the Electric Diva game, but this is an older game, so the graphics aren't as nice. The game plays with only 9 paylines, with a starting minimum bet of just 0.09, so many players would and could enjoy playing this game, but it doesn't mean it won't kill your wallet! Hahaha.

I'm not really in favour of any Microgaming 9-paylines games, because none of them have been good to me, not even Break Da Bank Again, and I've done thousands of spins on Break Da Bank Again without even getting one lousy good win to make a withdrawal! Yes, similarly with all the other 9-payliners too. They all sucked me! In this Shanghai Beauty game, the logo is the Wild symbol, paying a marvellous 1111x the total bet if you can get all 5 of them. It doesn't double any wins with it, it doesn't become stacked or expanded, but it does substitute for other symbols except for the Scatter symbol.

The Green Box is the Scatter symbol, another very good symbol that pays 500x the total bet for getting 5 of them. Getting 3 or more of these Green Boxes trigger 15 free spins with all wins tripled. Better still, the Free Spins game can be retriggered, although this is something quite rare to get. Nope, I never could get any of them. As for the other symbols in the game, the 2 Shanghai Beauties each pay 83.3x, the Gold Dumpling pays 44.4x, the Silver Dumpling pays 27.7x, the Ship pays 27.7x too, and the rest pay from 13.8x to 11.1x, all per total bet for getting 5 of each kind. This is an excellent paytable for a 9-paylines game, but don't ever count on getting those maximum wins so easily. They'd probably happen only once in a lifetime!
With win values as good as these, the game would inevitably plays cold on most occasions, with intermittent warm and hot runs, as can be expected from any high variance game. My first session on this Shanghai Beauty ended disastrously, without getting any decent wins at all, but I managed to get one Free Spins game in my second session. So, was it any good? Well, 15 free spins played, no retrigger came, and the final payout was a lousy 20x, even with that 3x multiplier, and another session ended up with nothing at all. Well, this game proved yet again how 9-payliners game are just no good for me!

Shanghai Beauty is a video slot game from the old good Microgaming. I have played this game quite recently and I had a very brief session. This is a newer game and I completely forgot about this provider to be honest so I had to try it out for myself. I have read some good reviews about the game but it is not the same feeling. I made a deposit just to test this exact slot only. I had 20 euros on my balance and I started placing min bets. The idea was to play this way until I trigger a feature and after that I would raise my bet. As I said before I had a brief session because I could not hit a good win at all. This is a medium variance slot and I knew that I have to activate the feature because the bigger wins are expected from the feature in general.

Shanghai Beauty is a 5 reels and 9 pay lines video slot game. I managed somehow to get 3 scatter symbols and I got 15 free spins. The wins during the free spins are a subject of x 3 multiplier. I managed to win something around 70 euros from this feature. As planned, I raised the bet and I managed to hit 3 scatters very fast again. This time I won around 140 euros from the feature, which was great. And the thing was, I did not play the game for a very long time and I had a great balance.

Shanghai Beauty is a game that is definitely worth playing. I would suggest you to try this slot and do not give up if the base game is not generous to you because the real magic happens during the free spins feature. This game has only one feature though and it is enough.

I took a guess when I saw this new Microgaming slot that it would probably be a clone of Asian Beauty, a reasonably old 243 ways game that took a different approach to Immortal Romance and it's ilk by tying the 243 ways to win mechanic with a lower variance, much more forgiving paytable. I knew I must be wrong straight away though when I spotted this was in fact a nine line game and upon closer inspection it turned out that Shanghai Beauty is infact, the one millionth Thunderstruck clone to be released!

Okay so I exagerated the one million part just a little bit but seriously, there are way too many of these games now and it seems Microgaming are only going to keep on pumping them out as they just did another one, Karaoke Party, a couple of months back as well.

One thing that is interesting about this particular release though is the user interface which seems to have been specifically designed with touch screens in mind and I wasn't able to find a version of the game with a regular mouse based interface at any of the casinos I tried. It's possible one is coming though as the game hasn't yet appeared in the Microgaming download casino client where this style of interface would surely feel very out of place, but if this is the way Microgaming are going with their slot designs this is a fascinating first look.

All of the buttons and controls are reasonably well laid out, the single menu button with several options reminds me a lot of Yggdrasil machines although having the paytable cramped in a small window that you have to scroll is possibly a dubious choice.
I also wasn't very keen on the music in this game which became repetitive very quickly and had me searching those menus for the off switch in no time at all.

This game seems a real waste of time to me, I've seen enough Thunderstruck clones to see me through for the rest of my days and in all honesty the continued proliferation of them is actually putting me off playing the original game as well. Microgaming should take note, you really can have too much of a good thing.
