The Matsuri game is made up of 5 reels, each one 3 symbols high. There are 25 paylines, playing from left to right, excluding Scatter symbols, which pay any.
Wild - The Wild symbol is depicted by a “Chinese Lantern”.
Scatter – The Scatter symbol is depicted by the “Cat Mask” symbol.
Matsuri Festival – If you can reveal 3 of the “Cat Mask” Scatter symbols on a single spin you will trigger the Matsuri Festival bonus. When this happens, you will receive 8 free spins. Each time you reveal a “Cat Mask” Scatter symbol during the free spins you will receive an additional 2 spins. You can re-trigger the additional free spins up to a maximum of 20 times.
If you reveal a “Chinese Lantern” Wild symbol during the Matsuri Festival bonus free spins then the reel it appears on will fill with Wild symbols. The reel of Wild symbols will remain but move one reel to the left on the next free spin. This will continue to happen until the Wild reel steps out of the game. You can have more than one full Wild reel on the grid at once.
Kingyo Suki – You trigger this bonus when you reveal 3 or more of the koi carp symbols. When this happens, you are taken to another part of the game where you have to fish for koi carp. There are 5 fish and bowls in front of you. All you have to do is choose a fish and it should be placed in the bowl, revealing a cash prize. The game ends, either when you run out of koi carp or when one of the koi carp falls through the glass paddle you use to scoop them out of the water. You can win 500 times your original bet.
Matsuri is a visually appealing slots game. It has the theme of an Asian festival, set at night with twinkling pink and orange lights sparking against rich purple sky. The game itself is a relatively simple that is very easy to understand and will appeal to slots gamers who like to know exactly what’s going on in front of them but want something a little different to the standard cherries and bells. The bonus is interesting but far from exciting or exhilarating. Essentially this is a solid offering from Play ‘n Go. The artwork elevates it above your average slots game, but the game play itself is distinctly run of the mill. However, for many slot players that might be exactly what you’re after. The House Edge is 4%, which makes the game’s value for money pretty average, something worth considering if you can find another game with similar aesthetic qualities and game play but more bang for your buck.
