NetEnt’s creative geniuses came up with an anime-themed slot machine that not only looks and feels great to play but also offers a huge stack of payouts and many diverse thrilling features up for grabs. There are but a few steady wins you can attain at all times from within the main gameplay, however, the bonus rounds are to blame for convincing players from around the globe to indulge themselves into Koi asking for more. The theme of this online slot is set against a mountainous skyline backdrop, with a view of a wonderfully animated waterfall to one side and the Royal Palace to the other. The Koi Princess herself is cheering for you just at the left-hand side of the 5 reels, which are framed against an ancient scroll with a pink cherry blossom accent on top of it. Relax to the soothing melodies of a traditional orchestra playing oriental yet soothing Asian music while matching vibrant lucky charms for the Jackpot and all grandiose rewards, which are all so ubiquitous in this slot. Furthermore, there are 4 rather generous bonus features to trigger using the 20 winning lines, including an instant coin win feature, 2 Free Spin rounds, and a Bonus Wheel feature. Koi Princess is compatible to play across the entire range of operating systems, including all mobile ones.
Koi Princess features 2 special lucky charms in-game including a Wild symbol which holds the highest value and the ability to replace every symbol apart from the Bonus one, and a dragon Scatter symbol that only appears on the 1st
, and 5th
reel of this slot. You’ll encounter a standard deck of playing cards for symbols of lower values, at least it’s standard playing sequence (10-A), and a golden lion, a green toad, 3 gold medallions and Koi herself standing for the game’s higher values alongside the Wild symbol, all of which are brightly colored and vivid. Landing 3 Dragons trigger the Bonus Wheel that has different awards in store, depending on which one you opt for. Koi throws a bone whenever a spin yields a winning combination and 2 dragons, by nudging the last reel that is holding the last dragon stuck, hopefully making the Bonus Wheel appear and turn the tables in your favor.
The Orient Express Costs & Gameplay
Koi Princess pays out only from left to right and often creates lump sums by adding together multiple winning combinations on different pay-lines from a single spin. Fortunately, you won’t have to calculate your own wins as the game does it automatically and shows the cash prize at the bottom of the screen, right next to the Bet button and the Cash balance, which you can easily keep track of during spins. The coin denominations vary depending on both of Koi’s coin values (which range from 0.01 and 1.0) and her bet levels (10, adjustable). That leaves us looking at a minimum bet of €0.4, and a maximum worth €400 per spin. However, the wager is directly affected by Koi’s Bonus Bet feature, which when activated doubles the cost for each spin, but increases the chances of forming winning combinations by granting random features and/or a Bonus round. Moreover, the Bonus Bet option not only enhances all values during the Bonus Wheel and intensifies all rewards during the Sure Win Free Spins mode, but it also boosts the RTP from 96% to 96.23%, providing all players with a slight advantage. Additionally, all of the 4 aforementioned features of the slot posses their own superpower accordingly:
1. Enjoy the benefit of overlay Wilds covering up to 5 reels of the screen accompanied by 10 Free Spins
2. A latter enables you to roll the dice and move around the wheel freely, to acquire cash prizes, activate all main features or even win a gigantic prize worth up to 1.000 times your wager, should you manage to hit the Bullseye.
3. The classic Free Spins feature consisting 10 complimentary spins with random & overlay Wilds and a Sure Win after each spin. Your highest win represents the Sure Win, which is granted after each unsuccessful spin.
4. Win an instant cash prize anywhere between 10-30 times your wagers!
Brilliantly Creative or Overcomplicated?
While some players fancy a vast number of features, others might be put off. Nevertheless, they are seamlessly incorporated into the game design in a rather delightfully entertaining way. Bet denominations are sure to attract all types of players regardless of their bankroll. Last but not least, there are ‘Quick Spin’ and ‘Auto-play’ options embodied into this slot to make your stay even more enjoyable, with a tricky ‘Spacebar-to-spin’ option also included, should you wish to kick-back and relax on your sofa without being distracted much for the rest of your evening. Simply put – it ticks all the boxes! Good luck or ‘Ganbarou’ players.
