Long Pao slot review (Netent)
Long Pao is the Oriental version of the famous Jack Hammer Netent slot
Netent has been releasing Asian versions of their most successful slots for some time now. Dead or Alive received a makeover and was renamed Who’s The Bride?.
And Cosmic Fortune’s futuristic symbols were replaced by gold nuggets, koi carps and bamboo in Imperial Riches.
Detective Jack Hammer, who has to save the world from the Evil Dr. Wuten, was not replaced by a Chinese or Japanese detective. For a moment, we thought the male in this slot’s logo was sitting on the toilet to read the daily sports section quietly. But that turned out to be an optical illusion.
So what does Long Pao stand for? Long Pao is the collective name for the gold and dragon-lined dresses as the Tang Dynasty members wore them.
Except for a different theme, almost nothing has changed with this slot. The game mechanism has remained the same, with the famous (and so beloved) “Sticky Win” feature at the centre stage.
Netent did choose to increase the game pace quite a bit. A smart choice, as the old Jack Hammer could come across as a bit long-winded.
Long Pao gameplay and features
Long Pao has 25 paylines, which are divided over 5 reels with 3 rows of symbols.
Betting starts at 1 cent per line and runs up to $€ 1 per line. Because you can also set a bet level from 1 to 10, you’ll end up with a bet range between 25 cents and $€ 250 per spin.
You can bring home up to 3,000 x the total bet, so the variance is medium.
The theoretical payout rate is an impressive 97%. Right, that is something to boast about. Better yet, with this rate, Long Pao qualifies for our SuperBigWin top 10 best paying Netent slots.
Sticky Win Feature
The Sticky Win feature is active during both the base game and the free spins.
With every winning combination, all winning symbols are retained, and a free respin is awarded.
As long as new winning combinations are formed, free respins are granted, and so you can build a denser packed field of winning combinations.
Symbols and payouts
The four imperial members of the Tang Dynasty are the highest symbols. Each 5-of-a-kind will earn you between 200 and 1,000 coins.
A full screen of the highest symbol (the red emperor with the orange glow) is good for the maximum profit: 25 x 1,000 = 25,000 coins. If you have played at betting level 10, this amount will be multiplied by another 10x, which amounts to 250,000 coins.
The card symbols and the sword are the low paying symbols and will earn you between 40 and 125 coins for every five identical ones on an active payline.
There are no wild symbols in the game.
Free spins bonus
Did you spin five or more scatters, either with or without using the Sticky Win Feature?
Then you win the free spins bonus. The more scatters that activate the bonus, the more free spins you get, as simple as that.
The minimum number of free spins is 10 (with 5 scatters), and you can ratchet that number of free spins up to 30 (with 9 – 15 scatters).
During the free spins, all earnings are multiplied by x 3.
Our verdict on Long Pao
Jack Hammer is, of course, one of the classics, and when you decide to remake this slot, you have to nail it.
Luckily, Netent didn’t do a rush job. Long Pao looks stunning, and the gameplay works like a charm.
The Sticky Win mechanism is rock solid, and also the payout percentage is excellent.
In short: this video slot is a knockout!
