Tanzakura Slot Review

The Tanzakura slots game can be found at casinos offering Genii software. Genii is one of the newer software developers in the online gaming market. Alongside many of the smaller casino software providers Genii focus heavily on slots games. The House Edge/RTP of the Genii slots games is sometimes listed within the paytable for the newer games in their catalogue. For the older games, as Genii is partnered with UK licensed operators and the UKGC license requires the publication of this information, RTP figures can be found on numerous casino sites. As such we know that the house edge for Tanzakura is 4.16%.

Tanzakura is a 5 reel game that is 3 symbols high. The game plays over 50 paylines, playing from left to right.

Special Symbols

Wild – The Wild symbol is the “High Maiden” symbol. The “High Maiden” symbol will substitute for all symbols other than the Free Spins and Bonus symbols. The “High Maiden” Wild symbol comes stacked three symbols high, but only on reel 3. The “High Maiden” will be single stacked on reels 1, 2, 4 and 5. Any win including a Wild symbol will double the bet.

Free Spins– The “Temple” symbol is the Free Spins symbol. 3 or more will trigger the game’s Free Spins feature. The symbol is a Scatter, meaning that it will trigger without needing to be part of any paylines.

Bonus – The “Heron” is the Bonus symbol. 3 or more “Heron” symbols anywhere on the reels will trigger the game’s Bonus feature.

Stacked Symbols – The “Samurai” symbol comes stacked on reels 1 and 2. On all the other reels it will be one symbol high. The “Kubukimono” also comes stacked, but this time on reels 4 and 5, whilst it is only one symbol high on all the other reels.

Bonus Features

Free Spins – Landing 3 of the “Temple” symbols will award you with 10 Free Spins. 4 of the “Temple” symbols will award you with 14 Free Spins. 5 of the “Temple” symbols will award you with 16 Free Spins. Free Spins can be re-triggered with all spins operating at the same level of bet that triggered the feature.

Bonus – The bonus game is a flip and reveal tile game. You trigger the ‘Pick a Prize’ feature game by landing 3 or more of the “Heron” symbols, regardless of paylines. If you reveal 3 “Heron” symbols you will be awarded 1 pick out of 3 possible choices. If you reveal 4 “Heron” symbols you will be awarded 2 picks out of 4 possible choices. If you reveal 5 “Heron” symbols you will be awarded 3 picks out of 5 possible choices.


Tanzakura is one of Genii strongest offerings to date. The game looks good, with some highly detailed symbols, sitting back against an intricate looking background. The Japanese theme is tried and tested, and has enough features to remain interesting. There are wilds, free spins and a bonus round, along with a few stacked symbols. For a Genii game this is pretty feature heavy. The house edge is perhaps a little higher than we would want it to be but there is still some value to be found here. All in all, this is a solid offering, nothing mind-blowing or particularly innovative, but enough to hold your interest for a few spins.
