Koi Princess is an anime-themed slot, developed by NetEnt. It has 5 reels and 20 paylines, with bets starting at 20p per spin. The title character, our Koi Princess, stands to the side of the reels as your game unfolds. With a bonus bet option, four random features waiting to be triggered and an additional four bonus features, there is plenty to keep you occupied as you take a spin through the Koi kingdom.
Set upon a flowing waterfall with a grand temple in the background, this is an idyllic setting. What starts off nice and calm has the potential to get very exciting if you can trigger the special features and land some winning combos. You may be wondering, when do the Koi fish come into action in the Koi Princess slot? Don’t worry, they will appear as part of one of the bonus features, where you can choose your favourite.
Secure your Stake
The 20 paylines are fixed, so they will all be in play throughout your entire game. It is up to you to decide how much you wish to bet against each of these paylines.
Your coin value starts from 1p per payline, which means a minimum stake of 20p per spin. You have the option to increase this up to £1 per payline, if you like.
In addition, you can adjust the level of the bet if you want to add extra weight to your stake. The bet level should be automatically set to 1, but it has the potential to be adjusted up to a maximum of 10. An increase in the bet level is equivalent to adding an extra coin to each payline, the higher you go. This, of course, will increase the value of your total bet.
The coin bet and the bet level will be multiplied by one another to create the total bet, which will be displayed just beneath the spin button. Make sure you check you’re happy with this before you start playing.
Winning combinations in Koi Princess can be created from the left-hand side to the right. Most symbols require a match of three or more identical symbols on a payline to win, whereas the larger prizes come with a full payline match.
The Koi Princess slot logo is the highest-value standard symbol in play. You can win by landing just two of these on a payline, but the maximum payout for landing five of a kind is 400 times your coin bet.
A trio of Japanese artefacts make up the rest of the high-value symbols in the Koi Princess game. An orange creature which looks like a lion can award up to 300 times the coin bet for matching five on a payline.
Next up is a green creature, and although we’re not sure what it is, one thing we are sure of is its worth! Five of these symbols on a payline can award you 250 times your coin bet. Lastly, there are some gold coins with a blue ribbon running through them, which has a maximum value of 200 times your coin bet for landing five of a kind.
As we often see in slots, the lower-value symbols are the card values, from Ace to 10. Top payouts for five-symbol matches across the reels vary from 100 to 160 times your coin bet, depending on the symbols matched.
The Koi Princess slot game’s Wild symbol depicts crashing waves in a golden frame. Wilds can substitute for any of the standard symbols in order to create or extend winning paylines.
You can also be rewarded for landing two or more Wilds on a payline. In fact, landing five of them across a payline could pay out 500 times your coin bet! Wild indeed!
There is the option to activate a Bonus Bet with each spin. The Bonus Bet will increase the probability of being awarded a random feature or bonus feature. It can also change the values on the Bonus Wheel, too.
To activate this bet, you can click on the button at the bottom right-hand side of the screen which says activate/ deactivate.
If you choose to activate it, the cost per spin will be doubled.
Our Princess kindly provides four random features which can be activated at any point throughout the game. The features are as follows.
5-Hit: Awards player 1 spin with a guaranteed five-symbol win.
Random Wild: Awards 1 spin with between four and nine overlay Wilds placed randomly on the reels.
Wild Reels: One spin where between two and five reels are covered entirely with Wild symbols.
Bonus Activation: One spin where three bonus symbols are given, plus a randomly awarded bonus feature
Landing three or more of the bonus symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5 will award a random bonus feature, of which there are four different ones. Even better is that, if you land two bonus symbols, you may manage to bump a third one into view from outside the visible reels, allowing you to trigger a feature.
Sure Win Free Spins: You are awarded 10 free spins, and each win will be at least the same as the triggering win.
Wild Reels Free Spins: You get 10 free spins. For each spin, between 1 and 5 reels will be entirely Wild.
Bonus Wheel: This is a bonus game where you can win coins and trigger the other free spins features. Click the dice to move around the wheel.
Coin Win: An instant win to be added straight to your prize fund.
There are most definitely enough features to keep us entertained here. With different potential bonuses, it helps to make us feel like we’re getting some variation from the game.
The bonus bet feature is a great additional option, should you wish to try it out every now and again, boosting the potential to trigger the many bonuses!
