Long Pao Review
Theme & Graphics
Since the inspiration for this game comes from the imperial family, we see various anime-style characters on the reels. There are emperors, empresses and their descendants on the reels, along with warriors, swords, various logos and royals. The overall design is good enough, mainly thanks to the many characters. It does not use the standard Chinese symbols that we see so often in other games for the Asian market.

The emperor is the most rewarding win, as he will bring you 40 times your bet for a combination of 5. Oddly enough, NetEnt has opted for European-looking characters, even though they are obviously of Chinese nobility. Possibly a calculated market decision, but strange nonetheless. In any case, there is also a wild available that connects more winners. It is the pink symbol with Chinese characters, which we assume means 'Long Pao'. It can also be used during Sticky Win replays, as you will see.
RTP and Volatility
With medium variance and a 5-reel, 25-payline game, you should see the usual royal symbols alongside swords and four members of the Chinese royal family on the reels. The RTP is pretty hight - exactly 96.96%.

As you would expect. Long Pao, it's the Wilds that look like Chinese symbols and can substitute for other symbols in winning combinations. However, these are not the only special symbols that the online slot has.
There are Free Spin symbols that look like golden dragons. When 5 or more of them appear, you trigger the free spins feature. You get between ten and thirty free spins with a 3x multiplier for each free spin! In other words, every free spins win is tripled!
Sticky wins are available in Long Pao. They are triggered when three or more Free Spin symbols appear in a winning combination. The reels with the winning symbols remain stationary while the other reels spin again to give you a chance at an even better configuration of symbols. This process continues until no new useful symbols appear.When the Sticky Wins feature ends, all active wins are processed. This means that you can get a coin win or the free spins that we have already talked about.
Play on Mobile
Long Pao offers the same fantastic experience as the desktop version. Its UI has been expertly adapted to fit the mobile screen. The spin wheel disappears from view when the reels are spinning. Settings and options likewise are filed away in a separate submenu. This economical and clever use of space keeps the display clear and clutter free, while not sacrificing any of the game’s functionality (all options that can be found in the desktop version are also in the mobile version). None of the entertainment has been sacrificed.
The look, symbols, and oriental atmosphere should appeal to most theme lovers, and ideally to NetEnt's burgeoning Asian market. It remains to be seen whether it will be successful.
Long Pao is a slot that falls into the "fast food" genre. It can provide quick thrills, and the Sticky Win feature is a strong incentive if things go your way. There are also up to 30 free spins to tempt you. However, if you stick around long enough to get the free spins, there will not be much left to keep you entertained after that. It's over, you have seen Long Pao in action, and now it's time to move on.
Long Pao is not a dud, it's just not a game that will pique the interest of many players. Perhaps a higher reward would be more effective in attracting a larger audience. Long Pao now occupies a niche of its own making, where NetEnt hopes to attract enough players to sign up.
