Even without being a part of the popular Kingdoms Rises game suite, Scorching Clouds has a lot to offer NZ punters. This online slot is a cluster-based game, which means instead of paylines, you’ll need groups of at least 4 adjacent matching symbols to win. After any win, the winning symbols will fall off the reels and will be replaced by new ones, creating the chance for additional wins. There are some excellent features, such as spreading wilds, respins, and 2 free spin bonus rounds.
Like all Kingdoms Rise slot games, you can win Game Tokens while you play, which can be used to purchase special bonuses from the Features Shop. You can also easily travel from one game to another by accessing the map. Lastly, this slot machine has 3 available progressive jackpots.
Although this title is not currently available on MansionCasino, you may enjoy playing the Reactoonz slot which uses the same entertaining ‘clusters pay’ dynamic.

Kingdoms Rise: Scorching Clouds is a cluster win game. This means that you will need a minimum of 4 matching symbols touching each other, either vertically or horizontally. After every win, the winning symbols are removed from the reels, and new symbols come on the board. This can create multiple wins per spin.
- Coins: There are over 30 betting options in this slot game. The minimum bet is set at $0.10, and the maximum bet is $2,000 per spin. Since there are no paylines, all wins are paid based on the total bet.
- Symbols: Scorching Clouds has three characters as high-value symbols. They are the Empress, with an ax payout of 100x the total bet, the Knight, and Engineer can each payout up to 60x. Their tools are medium-value symbols, telescope, hammer, and wrench. The low-value symbols are colourful gems. Check out the complete paytable in the chart below.
- Wild: The wild symbol can substitute for any symbol on the board. If it lands in a highlight area, it will activate the Spreading Wilds feature.
- Scatter: The Free Game symbol can trigger the free spin feature when there are at least 3 adjacent on the reels.
- Bonus Symbol: Anytime a Dragon Egg symbol lands on the reel, you will add it to your collection. Once it’s removed from the board, it will leave a wild symbol in its place. If it lands on the highlighted area, it will trigger the Spreading Wild feature. Collect 6 Eggs to trigger the Dragon Eggs Respin.

- Bonus Features: There are several exciting bonus features to look out for:
- Spreading Wilds: During each win, you will see a section of the reels covered by highlight boxes. Any time a wild symbol lands in these boxes, it will spread and cover up to 4 additional symbols. If a dragon lays an egg, these will be collected for the Dragon Egg Respin feature. The feature will end when there are no new winning clusters on the reel.
- Dragon Eggs Respins: As you play, the dragon’s will lay special eggs for you to collect. Once you have 6 eggs, it will trigger the respin feature. During respins, instead of winning symbols being removed from the reels, the winning symbols stay on, and all other symbols are removed.
- When you have 3 or scatter symbols touching each other on the reels, you will have the choice between 2 free game features. The Empress Free Game is a high variance game with up to 7 free spins. During the feature, any hammer, wrench, or telescope symbol will transform to the high-value empress symbol. In the Knight Free Games, which is a medium variance, you will have up to 12 free games. The Empress and Engineer symbols will be removed from the reels, and all hammer symbols that are adjacent to a knight symbol will transform to the higher value knight feature.
