Koi Princess Slot Review

Here’s another slot game that has a Japanese/Oriental theme. It’s packed with bonus features and comes from NetEnt who just seem unable to do anything wrong.

This is a five-reel slot that has a total of three rows of symbols and 20 paylines. That number of lines is fixed so you have to decide your coin level and the number you want to stake. That gives a minimum cost of £0.20 and a maximum one of £200. That’s a wide enough range to please those playing for fun and those who want to bet big and wins lots of cash. As you’ll read though there is the bonus bet which increases your chance of winning but doubles your stake.

In the background we have a waterfall and a temple that sets the scene well for the game. To the left of the reels we have the princess and she looks absolutely stunning. There’s a bit of animation as she keeps a close eye on how you’re getting on. Symbols include the Koi Princess logo, a dragon, a turtle and some Chinese dollars. The wild symbol plays a really important part in this game and is the breaking wave symbol. It can substitute for other symbols to get you winning combinations. It can’t substitute for the golden dragon’s head which is the bonus symbol in this game. The other symbols in the game are the Ten to Ace playing card symbols.

Playing this game isn’t difficult with all the major control buttons underneath the reels. You can also set an autoplay of between ten and 1000 automated spins or set a more precise figure. Have a good look through the paytable and rules because as you’re about to discover there are a lot of bonus features in this game.

Bonus Games

If you can afford to do so, try your luck with the Bonus Bet. This is an optional extra but does cost double your current bet. By taking this on you increase your chance of triggering one of the random features as well as the bonus game. Another plus is that it will increase the payouts in certain parts of the bonus game. Just be careful with your budget though.

The random feature can turn up anytime during the base game. When it does appear you are offered three Koi and they offer one of four bonus games. There’s the 5-Hit Random Feature, really handy as you get just the one free spin but you are guaranteed a five-symbol win.

The Random Wild Feature again sees you receiving just the one free spin but there are between four and nine additional wilds on the reels. That really gives you a great chance of getting a winning combination. There’s more wild activity in the Wild Reels Feature with one free spin and between two and five of the reels completely wild, so sit back and wait for the big win.

The final feature is the Bonus Feature. This can also be triggered by getting three of the bonus symbols anywhere on the first, third and fifth reels. There are four games offer here and the one you get to play is chosen by spinning the wheel.

There’s the Sure Win Free Spins with ten free spins and guaranteed wins. Each win you get will be at least as big as the previous one you’ve just had. Also available is the Wild Reels Free Spins with ten free spins and one to five reels completely wild. On the Bonus Wheel you can win cash prizes and activate the two free spins rounds just mentioned. Finally there’s the Coin Win where a cash prize is awarded.

Conclusion

A good looking game that has tons of stuff going on. Not all NetEnt slot games have as many bonus features as this one. Just be careful with that bonus bet because it does make playing the game a lot more expensive.
