Sakura Fortune Slot Review

4.5

This Quickspn slot is simple, high variance, and with big wins, but very divisive.

There is an abundance of Asian-themed Oriental slots out there. Many of them are terribly generic, but this Sakura Fortune slot machine is not one of them.

This richly-detailed slot from Quickspin boasts a wealth of features. The prizes are sure to put a smile on your face too.

If there is one thing you can guarantee with Quickspin it is the fact that they will always put out a well-themed game – just look at Volcano Riches game.

This Sakura Fortune online slot is no exception to this rule. This game is beautiful. You aren’t pulled out of the theme at all.

We have seen some richly detailed slot machines out there which resort to having their low paying symbols being nothing more than numbers. Not this one; the lowest paying symbols in this game are ‘lucky coins’ which, again, look beautiful.

Couple the graphics with the mesmerizing music and you have a truly gorgeous game. You can tell the art and design team put a whopping amount of effort into it.

The theme is likely not going to be for everybody. We have seen people who detest Asian-themed games with every fibre of their body, for some strange odd reason – personally, we love slot games like Imperial Opera Play’n GO or Kawaii Kitty by Betsoft.

If you are one of those, then the richly detailed nature of this game is probably not going to be for you. For everybody else, you should give it a (literal) spin.

The slot features are built into the base game

This is not something that you find often. There are actually two features built into the base game. However, since Sakura Fortune is a high volatility slot, you probably won’t see them appear in under 50 spins.

Well, you may do, but you will probably be playing this online or mobile slot for a while before it happens.

The first involves the wilds. If you are lucky enough to get two reels filled with wilds, then they will become ‘sticky wilds’ and you get a re-spin.

The second feature is tied into this feature. On occasion, you may almost fill up a reel with wilds. The game may nudge the symbols to fill up the reel.

However, this feature is not only rare, it teases it a lot; we don’t think we have ever seen it trigger the wild re-spin.

At least you have Sakura Fortune free spins, right?

Your third and final feature will come in the form of free spins. In order to trigger these, you will need to get three or more scatters on the reels at once.

Oddly enough, unlike other Canadian slots online, the wild will actually work as a scatter for this feature. If you are lucky enough to trigger these free spins, then you will get 7 of them.

Once again, this is unlikely to be a feature that you will be triggering that often, but when you do, it can be explosive.

For a high volatility phone game with free spins that trigger rarely, you would think that there would be some sort of multiplier in place, just to help you ramp up those wins. Sadly, nope.

What does happen is that whenever the wild symbol appears it will expand to cover the whole reel and remain sticky for the rest of your spins.

Sometimes it can feel like the wild symbol is even rarer during your free spins (it is not), but if you manage to get a couple of reels wilds, there’s brilliant 5 symbol wins.

This is a beautiful game but is it let down by its volatility?

There is high volatility and there is high volatility. Honestly, there needs to be a new name for the volatility that Sakura Fortune slot boasts, so be careful.

We’ve rarely seen Features barely trigger and you can go a long time without a win, more so even than volatile games like Book of Dead or Isis by Microgaming.

However, when you do win, you win HUGE. We reckon that this is a game that is best reserved for those with larger bankrolls or happy to place a couple of Hail Mary bets at the end of the night.

That said, it’s probably best to keep the bets small if you want to make it to the free spins. It is not uncommon for people to blow their entire fortune on this beautiful princess.
