I wonder if slot designers wake up in the morning and decide to go to work and make another slot game with a Japanese theme. Well there are certainly a fair few of them out there and ‘Matsuri’ is another one from Play ‘N Go. It features a free spins round as well as the chance to win cash for catching goldfish in the Kingyo Sukui feature. Throw in some wild symbols with restless feet and it’s clear playing this slot is going to be an enjoyable and profitable feature.
So, what’s ‘Matsuri’ all about then. Don’t read it wrongly and think that it’s about the latest Japanese technology, it’s actually the Japanese word for festival and I bet that wasn’t on your shortlist. That means it’s time to celebrate and that’s just what you will be doing if getting the top wins available in this slot game which can be played on your PC and mobile devices.
There’s five reels and 25 pay-lines in this slot game and those pay-lines are a fixed amount. No need to be working out how many pay-lines to activate then and the minimum cost of playing this game is 0.25 and the maximum 100. A wide range and there shouldn’t be any problem finding a level to play at whether you’re just up for some fun or chasing big cash prizes.
It always seems that when a slot game has a Far Eastern theme, it’s almost guaranteed to have an attractive look to it. That’s the case here with symbols including dango dumplings, kaigori, a trio of females all looking for a good time at the festival and tangy takoyaki.
It’s the ornate lamp which is the wild symbol in this game. The more you see of this symbol the better as it can substitute for other symbols to help get you some winning combinations. It can’t replace the scatter symbol but another good point the wild has is that if five of them appear on a pay-line that wins you 1000 coins.
Playing this game isn’t difficult at all with no problems at all in setting the stake for each spin of the reels The control buttons are situated underneath the reels and if you want a full list of rules that’s available too. The game has an entertaining and rather fitting soundtrack but if it’s not your cup of tea then it can easily be muted.
If you can get three goldfish scatter symbols on the three middle reels, then that gets you into the Kingyo Sukui Bonus feature Your task here is to try and catch some goldfish by using silver spoon in order to win a cash prize. The feature continues until you have been lucky enough to catch all the goldfish or that spoon, which to be fair doesn’t look like it’s that strong, finally breaks.
As well as the Kingyo Sukui feature, there is always a free spins round. To get this you need to get three festival mask scatters end up on the first third and fifth reels. Once that has been achieved, you receive a total of eight free spins. The scatter symbol rewards you with two more free spins when it makes an appearance and the most you can get is a grand total of 20 free spins to do some damage with.
Also, keep an eye out for the wild symbol during those free spins. It transforms itself into a large lamp wild reel and then on each free spin makes a move one position to the left. That can help get you some winning combinations and if you are lucky enough to get more than one of them on the reels, then those wins can be quite lucrative.
It’s always a good idea to do a bit of research before putting some real cash into a slot game. To do that have a look through the paytable which is a very informative read. Information included is where all the pay-lines are, how much the winning combinations pay out and the rules to the bonus features I’ve mentioned in this review. Nothing beats playing the game, so have a few free games in order to see how all the features work out without having to spend a single penny.
Why not also try out the slot ‘Nest Egg’ from Gamesys. That also has a free spins round and is of medium variance, in addition to that it has a wild that appears on all the reels. Then there’s another Far Eastern journey undertaken in ‘Shanghai Rose’ from High 5 Games. That slot also offers eight free spins which are triggered by three scatters.
Another trip to the Far East and again it’s an entertaining slot with an attractive look to it. The Kingyo Sukui feature is a good laugh and there’s no that many slot games where you win money for catching goldfish. The free spins round can also be lucrative, particularly if more than one wild makes an appearance. Definitely give this a go.
