This beautifully designed game is situated in a delightful Japanese garden, with a background consisting of a distant pagoda and a waterfall. The Koi Princess herself stands coyly watching to the left of the reels as they spin. Reel symbols include lots of colourful Japanese style emblems, supplemented by some high playing card values. The shy princess lets out a little expression of joy whenever you achieve a line win. And the more you win, the more animated her squeals of delight become as she gives her support to your winning endeavours. This is a great game to play on any kind of device. The intricately designed symbols look great on the larger screen, but their clear and colourful design is easy to distinguish on the more compact screen of the mobile or tablet as well.
This 20 winning line game allows you to play from as little as 20p, with bet levels being variable up to as much as £200 per spin within the basic game. The Wild symbol is a sea wave, and this can substitute for all the other standard symbols to increase your chances of achieving a winning combination. There aren’t any Scatter symbols on this game, but there is a Bonus symbol. Get three of these anywhere on reels 1, 3 or 5 to trigger one of four Bonus Features (see below for details). In fact, this game is so packed with additional features and bonus games that you will have to keep for playing quite a while to manage to experience them all…
The four Bonus Features on this game can be randomly triggered, or by getting Bonus symbols anywhere on reels 1, 3 and 5 in the main game. These are:
Sure Win Free Spins award you with ten free spins, where you are guaranteed a win on every spin.
If you are awarded Wild Reels Free Spins, you get ten free spins where on each spin, between one and five random wheels are covered by Wild overlay symbols. The precise number and position of these overlay wilds is re-set for each spin.
Or you could get the Bonus Wheel, whereby you can get a coin win, a prize multiplier and / or activate one of the other special Bonus games above. There are twelve different possible prize combinations on this great feature.
But as if all this was not enough, there are also four randomly triggered features on this game, so you can be rewarded with additional excitement at any time. When this special feature is randomly activated during the main game, three koi fish emerge from the beneath your reels. Pick one and one of the available options is awarded.
If you win the 5 Hit Random feature, a wheel of fortune emerges: you click or tap on the “Stop” button to stop the wheel, which then reveals your chosen symbol. Your chosen fish then returns to flick your five identical symbols into five random positions on your reels. The rest of the symbols continue to spin before stopping to reveal your guaranteed line win.
If you win the Random Wild Random Feature, you get one free spin, with between four and nine overlay wilds placed randomly on your reels by your chosen fish.
Should you be awarded the Wild Reels Random Feature, you get one free spin where at least two, and up to five reels are covered purely with overlay Wild symbols.
Finally, there is the Bonus Activation Random Feature, whereby your spin is accompanied by three Bonus symbols, with one Bonus Feature randomly awarded. These Bonus features can also be awarded when you achieve three Bonus symbols anywhere on reels 1, 3 and 5.
There really is so much going on with this amazing game that you may well wish to increase your chances of experiencing them all. Well amazingly enough, you can! With Koi Princess’s Bonus Bet feature, which you can access via a button at the bottom right of your screen, you get the chance to double the number of bonus features in the main game. Of course, there is a price to be paid: your stake level rises to double the previously set bet per spin. But please be careful: with this turbo boosting Bonus Bet activated, it’s easy to get carried away – the maximum bet per spin is now £400!
This feature packed game certainly keeps you on your toes. With so many extra things going on and bonus features which may be triggered at any time this is not the kind of game for those who just want to press a button and leave the rest to the reels. Despite its soothing soundtrack and peaceful, stress free Japanese garden theme, you need to keep your wits about you and be ready for the action on this charming and rewarding title. But with its amazing range of different special features, this game really is one of the most entertaining titles around. The expected Return to Player rate (RTP) for Koi Princess is over 96%.
