The Geisha slots game can be found at casinos offering Endorphina software. Endorphina are one of the newer casino software providers on the market but they have managed to gain distribution with some of the largest casino networks currently active within the market. As a standard Endorphina do publish the RTP/House Edge information for their slots games within the game help file or paytables. As a software provider not licensed in the UK, and as such not required to publish this information, this is a significantly player friendly practice. As such we can state that the Geisha House is 4.00%.
Geisha is a 5 reel slots game and each reel is 3 symbols high. The game uses 25 paylines and you can bet up to 10 coins per payline.
Wild – The “Koi Carp” is the Wild symbol, replacing all symbols except Scatters. The “Koi Carp symbol is also the most valuable in the game. 3 “Koi Carp” symbols in a winning combination will award you with 1000 coins, 4 will award you 10000 coins and 5 win award you with 50000 coins.
Scatter – The Scatter symbol is the “Japanese Temple”.
Take Risk – Whilst you might not necessarily class this as a bonus feature, it does play a significant role in the gaming experience. With every win you get the chance to try and double your win by trying your luck in a game of “Play Your Cards Right” with the game’s dealer. If you can flip over a card that is higher than the one the dealer is showing you will double your win. Flip a card that is lower than the dealer’s and you lose the lot. This round continues until you either choose to stop gambling or you lose out to the dealer. In the result of a tie, no one wins.
Free Spins – You will trigger the game’s free spin bonus when you land three or more of the “Japanese Temple” Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. When this happens you will be awarded 10 free spins. “Geisha Joker” symbols will be added to reels and will multiply the bet by x1, x2 and x3, depending on the number you reveal during the bonus. The free spins can be re-triggered.
Geisha’s theme is entirely as the title would suggest. Symbols of Japan fill the reels, from the “Geisha” herself, to “Koi Carp”, “Fan” and “Umbrella” symbols. The game’s design is far from mind blowing, playing things relatively safe, which helps to match the equally safe and simple bonus options available. There are free spins and re-spins. There are also wilds and the standard Endorphina “Risk” option. Other than that, there’s not much going on here. If it’s glitz and glamour you’re after, if it’s bold primary colours or exciting animated sequences. If you want symbols that move, reels that sway, then you best steer clear of this game. This is one for the traditionalist. Nothing surprising is going to happen, meaning that the game play is pretty limited. The house edge is the usual Endorphina 4%, which, as always, is neither good nor bad.
