Sakura Fortune Slot
With Sakura Fortune, Quickspin introduces an Asian-inspired slot, full of Chiense and Japanese influences against a backdrop of cherry blossoms. With full reel wilds, respins and free spins, there are a lot of opportunities across forty paylines. It’s a beautiful, calming slot, but a volatile affair as you wait for Lady Luck to smile on you.
Sakura Fortune Free Spins and Bonus
Here you’ll find two features of equally high importance. The most striking bonus in Sakura Fortune are certainly the full stack wilds in form of a woman in a beautiful red dress. This symbol can appear on the reels 2, 3 and 4. If you get more than wild symbol on the reels in one round, you’re awarded respins – 2 for 2 wilds, 3 for 3 wilds.
You can hang onto hope for those moments that two wilds almost make it onto the reels. If you can see the edges of two wilds on screen, there is a chance they might yet fully nudge onto the reels.
The Princess Wild also has an important role to play during the bonus round, too.
3 bonus symbols from left to right award 5 free spins. You can recognise the scatter symbol by the fan and the word “bonus”. Every wild full stack symbol that lands on the reels during the free spins will become sticky. It also awards an additional free spin.
Sakura Fortune Theme and Symbols
Sakura Fortune is full of beautifully fashioned symbols that represent the slot’s Asian theme. All symbols are lightly animated. The Princess is understandably the most impressive. It comes with an elaborate golden border, the princess carries a sword and is framed by cherry blossoms.
The low-paying are different Chinese or Japanese coins of currency. The bronze and green coins pay your original wager for 5 across a payline. The coins with a silver and platinum look to them pay 1,25x your original wager.
The higher-paying symbols look more interesting, as usual. Here’s what they pay:
- The jade statue pays double your wager for 5 on a payline
- The dragon statue also pays double your wager for 5 on a payline, but pays slightly more for 4 symbols
- The young man pays three times your wager for 5 on a payline
- The young woman pays five times your wager for 5 on a payline
- The old man pays ten times your wager for 5 on a payline
The Princess wild is a wild scatter symbol. The music in Sakura Fortune is great. It adds a lot to the relaxing atmosphere of the slot and never loops noticeably.
Sakura Fortune RTP and Volatility
Individually, the value of the high-paying symbols doesn’t actually seem all that high. Thanks to the very lucrative full stack wilds however, Sakura Fortune ends up at an RTP percentage of 96,58% total. What you have to keep in mind is that the potential of high wins thanks to the wilds means the slot is very volatile.
If it weren’t, it would probably be far too easy to achieve very big wins. The way it is, it does take a lot of patience, however. Even the appearance of the wild is by far no guarantee for a win, making it a lot less exciting. Because of the high volatility, Sakura Fortune can feel frustrating at times.
How to play Sakura Fortune
You have the best chance at a big win in this Quickspin slot if you manage to hit several wilds during the bonus round. The wild is your best chance at bigger wins in the base game, too, as at least 3 wilds can land on the reels altogether. It has a 5×4 layout with 40 paylines.
You can play Sakura Fortune at wagers between 20p and £80 per spin. The maximum win in the slots is capped at 1087 times your original wager.
Slightly paltry numbers in the value of individual symbols and the number of free spins awarded show that Quickspin has done a lot to only dole out selected really big wins in this slot. Many players who try their hand at Sakura Fortune may end up with absolutely nothing, but those who do are in for quite something. This makes it one of the most exciting, but also most frustrating slots in the Quickspin lineup. It looks incredible and is full of potential. On the other hand playing Sakura Fortune can be so tense that it’s certainly not for the risk averse.
