Developer Wazdan describes this online slot as a ‘moving story of young lovers’ in a ‘unique oriental setting’ and who are we to argue? it’s called Butterfly Lovers and it’s interesting gameplay promises players three different free spins modes in amongst the attractive graphics.
Butterfly Lovers plays out on the 4 x 4 grid shown above and essentially the gameplay involves trying to land at least eight matching symbols at once; however a win or possible win will be held over for one paid spin to try to complete it or improve upon it.
Our title characters, Liang Shenbo and Zhu Yingtai, stand on either side of the reels in front of a rural, Chinese scene of mountains, meadows and rivers.
High value symbols include the red and yellow butterflies, the green jade, the lily and the fruit; J, Q, K and A make up the lower values; the icon with Liang and Zhu is wild and it will replace all standard symbol to help form winning combinations.
