New slot with local jackpots from NetEnt
Now it really shows that NetEnt and other game providers are trying to entertain the Asian market. NetEnt has recently produced batch of new slots targeting this market, and you can really see it in the game design and sounds that are quite hard to review in our European point of view. In this new slot we can recognize the old game engine Avalanche, and everybody knows Gonzos Quest when we are talking about this.

When you get the Free Falls feature, it will lead to Lucky Pond bonus game. As added feature this will then lead to a Jackpot game where you can trigger one of the local Jackpots.
If you are not familiar with avalanche enginge, it works pretty straight forward. When you get winning symbols on the screen, they are removed and then new space is created for new symbols to drop in. This can then lead for new wins, and it repeats until there is no winning symbols on the screen.
When you get 3-5 lantern scatters, you will trigger the Free Falls feature with 10, 15 or 20 spins depending the amount of scatters you got. During the Free Falls, you will collect jewels, and after the spins have completed, you will enter to the Lucky Pond bonus game.
Lucky Pond bonus game will be triggered after the Free Falls, and the jewels collected in prevous stage will drop to the pond and aten by coin fish or bonus fish. If a bonus fish eats three jewels, you will be given access to the actual bonus game. Coin fish will award cash prizes.
Jackpot Game is a larger pond with coin fish and five jackpot fishes. You will have 50 jewels, and if you are lucky, you will win the jackpot or cash prizes.
