Guess what? It’s yet another oriental-themed online slot to add to the massed ranks already available to play. We always like something new though so let’s give Serenity a chance – it’s from Microgaming and according to the blurb it’s all about “karma, tranquility and good fortune“. It has also two bonus features to keep things interesting and you can read all about them below.
Serenity is a five reel slot with three rows and fifteen fixed paylines; behind the large reels there’s a soothing view of bridges and Chinese lanterns in front of a mountain range behind which the sun is rising (or perhaps setting).
Three Chinese lanterns – red, orange and purple – comprise the highest value symbols and they are complemented by the usual 10, J, Q, K and A.
The wild symbol is an ornate purple/gold affair which substitutes for all others except the bonus and scatter icons; they are represented by a bonus lantern and a gold latticed scatter respectively.
This is triggered by landing three, four or five of the lantern bonus symbols on an active payline and it’s a simple but visually appealing picking round so just select three lanterns from those on offer for a cash prize. The more symbols which trigger the feature, the higher the lantern value – up to 500x your line stake.
The lantern bonus can be triggered from the free spins round, as you can see from the video above.
Trigger this by landing three or more of the scatter symbols anywhere in view and you will be rewarded with ten free spins. All wins during this round will be subject to a 3x multiplier and you can re-trigger more spins by landing three more scatters.
Well it’s fair to say that there’s nothing wrong with Serenity but it doesn’t really offer anything new in terms of the theme or gameplay. Still the music is nice and the features seem easily triggered so what’s not to like?
