Serenity is an Oriental themed online pokie from Microgaming, with the reels set in the tranquillity of a perfect Japanese garden and soft music playing in the background. The transparent background of the symbols displays the beauty of the garden. The thematic symbols are three exquisitely crafted Japanese lanterns. These are followed by the playing card icons designed in a special style that Microgaming has started using for its Oriental themed pokies. The playing card icons are embellished with small Oriental items like fan, dragon or coins.
Serenity online pokie uses three special symbols. The Wild logo is the wild symbol and it substitutes for all other symbols except the special symbols. It also awards the highest line payouts. Two or more scatter symbols appearing anywhere on the reels award scatter payouts that are multiplied by the total bet. Three or more scatter symbols trigger 10 free spins in which all payouts are tripled. The free spins can be re-triggered in the usual manner. Serenity also has a thematic bonus game on the second screen. Three or more Lantern Bonus symbols appearing on an active payline trigger this feature. There has to be a bonus symbol on the first reel. 12 objects are displayed on the second screen. You get to pick as many as the number of bonus symbols in the triggering spin. Three picks will award a payout between 36 and 300 times the line bet. Four picks will award between 48 and 400 times and five pick will award between 60 and 500 times. This feature can be triggered during the free spins but the payouts are not multiplied.
Serenity is a 15 paylines online pokie and you should play with all paylines enabled. You can wager up to 5 coins per payline and the coin denomination can be varied from AU$0.01 to AU$5.00. The maximum line bet is AU$25 and the maximum total bet is AU$375. Hence both low rollers and high rollers can easily enjoy this online pokie.
