Koi Princess is a Japanese themed video slot, where the graphics have clearly been inspired by the manga comics, which have long ago become extremely popular in the Land of the Rising Sun, and we believe you will enjoy the visual appearance as much as we have.
Japanese koi fish has served as an additional leitmotif, and while you will not be able to see these on the reels, the fish will appear as random feature selection is triggered, so just pick one of them to reveal the perk you have won.
The five reel, twenty payline game was released by Net Entertainment in November 2015 and this is yet another attractive video slot from the Swedish gaming company that has dominated the international stage for several years now.
The reason why NetEnt games have become so popular is that they offer a very good gaming experience, as attractive graphics, nice animations, realistic sound effects and a plethora of extra features ensure the players keep coming back for more.
How to Play
Koi Princess is played at fixed 20 paylines, where bet level ranges from 1 to 10 and coin value can be anywhere from $0.01 to $1. The default wager at bet level 1 is 20 coins, but if you decide to activate the Bonus Bet feature, your stake will be doubled.
Most game options are found below the reels and these have been designed tastefully so as not to obstruct the amazing opening scene of the game that depicts a waterfall on one side and Koi princess and Japanese temple on the other.
We have already mentioned Bonus Bet and what it does is that it improves your chances of triggering random and bonus features, while also increasing sure coin wins within the Sure Win Free Spins round.
Four random features that can strike at any time include 5-Hit, Random Wilds, Wild Reels and Bonus Game, and we have seen some of these award impressive wins.
Meanwhile, three Bonus icons anywhere on reels I, III and V award a random bonus feature that include Sure Win Free Spins, Wild Reels Free Spins, Coin Win and Bonus Wheel.
For more information on the game’s eight extra features, you can simply consult the Paytable, accessed by pressing the i symbol found in the bottom left hand corner.
The 100,000-coin maximum payout may not sound like much when compared to similar games and its top prizes, but this is not that important seeing as how winning the top payout in any video slot was always going to be a tall order.
On the other hand, Koi Princess appears to offer decent value for money, given that main game wins are good enough and with so many extra features available, you are bound to profit from one of those eventually.
Manga inspired visuals and Japanese theme have proved to be a winning combination as we have really enjoyed the time spend playing the NetEnt title.
And while a rewarding gaming experience is always a plus, you will be glad to hear that the potential for decent wins is there, thanks to very good payouts in the main game and a plethora of features that can either strike at random or be triggered.
On that note, we definitely wouldn’t recommend activating the Bonus Bet since these kinds of features tend to lower the overall value.
