Lucky Koi slot gets an Oriental theme, one where the Koi fish is the one that gets most of the focus. The game’s screen shows a pond, with lotus flowers, insects, frogs and fish being all part of the design. Microgaming delivers a Chinese themed game here, which is something that is far from unique. Scatter symbols, free spins, big multipliers and wilds are all part of the game, as are the 25 lines on 5 reels, plus payouts of up to $5,000.
Betting and Prizes
It’s not going to be an expensive game to play, having 25 lines in use at most, which you can use as you need to. You can activate more lines with at least one coin for each one, so in order to have all the lines in use, you need a minimum of 25 coins in the wager. The maximum number of coins is 250, at 10 coins per line. The denomination will only reach a value of $0.10, so the line bet can be at $1, while the maximum total bet can be $25.
Up to 10,000 coins appear to be offered in this game, so you can expect a prize of $1,000 at most from it. With 5x multipliers from the free spins, you could get up to $5,000.
Lucky Koi Slot Features
The Lucky Koi Logo, which has a golden fish and a lotus flower at the bottom, behaves like a wild symbol would. You can use these symbols as replacements for other symbols, regular ones, which are already arranged on the same payline. A wild can be even more useful if it manages to form a combo out of its own symbols alone, since the slot’s best payouts are awarded this way.
A second special symbol will be in use, the scatter which shows a Chinese building in it. Having 3 or more such symbols present triggers the bonus game, and at the same time you will get a prize which multiplies the total bet by 5x to 100x.
The bonus game shows you a pond with fish in it, and you pick 3 to 6 of them. You can win between 10 and 30 free spins, where multipliers applied to the wins can go up to 5x. You retrigger the free spins with another 3 scatter symbols.
Theme & Design
It’s a theme that follows the same Chinese influence that a lot of other games are using these days, but the angle it goes on is a different one, I’ll give it that. Koi carp and the decorative ponds in which you might find them seem to be the inspiration here, so that’s what you’re seeing in the background image and among the symbols. Icons include Koi fish, turtles, water insects, lotus flowers, frogs, hand fans and silver/gold ingots.
Lucky Koi slot does alright by the player in most ways, but the design and theme choice aren’t the best parts, quite clearly.
