Sakura Fortune Slot is the name of the national flower of Japan – the cherry blossom – and this five-reel, 40-Payline Quickspin slot is inspired by a princess from the same country who takes on evil emperors in a bid to win fathomless riches. It’s played over a slightly unconventional four rows and was launched (appropriately enough given the theme) in the spring of 2017.
You’ll find colourful reels here, in a wooden frame and with a background of green treetops and exquisite flower blossom, as you enter a magical world of golden dragons and natural beauty. And there’s a tidy 1,087x stake to be won on every spin to boot.
How to play
Adjust your bets, first of all, using Total Bet to set your coins denomination, and then hitting Spin or clicking on Autoplay if you don’t want to turn the reels manually.
Symbols in Sakura Fortune Slot include gold coins, dragons, evil emperors, and, of course, the princess herself. In a nice little twist from the norm, the coins are the lower-paying values, rather than the bog-standard playing card icons.
Sakura Fortune Slot special features
The princess herself serves as the Wild symbol, replacing all other icons when she appears on Reels 2 through 4.
A hand fan is the bonus Scatter, showing up only in the base game and able to display on all reels.
As with most games, it’s here you’ll find Sakura Fortune’s most exciting moments. Land at least three Scatters in a single spin, starting from the left, to activate this perk and enjoy five freebies in the first instance.
If, during this feature, a princess Wild lands on the reels, it expands to take up the whole reel while granting an extra free whirl. It then stays there for as long as the round lasts. In all, you can potentially win up to 15 free whirls here.
Sakura Fortune respins perk
Enjoy this one when a couple of fully stacked princess Wilds pop up on the reels – and receive two respins. The number of respins you’ll get will depend on how many Wilds launched the feature. It finishes when no fresh Wilds land, and you can also activate the free spins round during the round.
Mystery Nudge feature
Land two or more Princess Wilds, and be in with a chance of them nudging to become fully stacked. (Although be warned, not all of them will do this every time.)
Return to Player (RTP)
RTP or Return to Player is a good average here, at 96.58%. This game can potentially be highly lucrative, although the other side of the coin is that it’s also very volatile.
We reckon it’s definitely worth taking Sakura Fortune Slot for a spin. This game has the stunning visuals that seem to come as standard with Quickspin’s offerings. The theme is a very charming one, while this is also a pretty straightforward slot, so it could be a good one to try out if you’re a novice player. It’s also action-packed with some great gameplay.
Give it a go – and do let us know what you thought.
