With a new year comes a new game and for Microgaming’s latest release, the inspiration is the East, specifically the ornate pebbled water gardens that are popular in the region and particularly for one of their most spectacular inhabitants, the Lucky Koi carp.
This brand new slow is a 5-reel, 25 payline slot which is based on the American (hybrid) style of slot machine and it is packed with a host of exciting features to ensure that players can pick up their own piscatorial-inspired bonus!
To continue the water-garden theme, each of the symbols on the reels bring the concept to life. From dragonflies, frogs, water lilies and even ornate fans, all the symbols along with a beautifully ambient soundtrack, help transport the player into these havens of tranquillity.
Not that it will be tranquil for long as once you get into the video slot, then you can hit some fantastic bonuses, with a top prize of 125,000 coins available once you trigger the bonus games.
The Lucky Koi acts as the in-game wild and its presence on the reels allows you to substitute it for other symbols increasing your chances of a winning line.
Land the lantern scatter symbol on 3, 4 or 5 reels and this activates the Bonus Choice section. You can elect to receive a randomly generated free spin bonus of between 10 and 30 free spins, complete with a multiplier of up to 5x for any winnings in this section.
Alternatively, you can pick up your bamboo fishing pole and try to land a “nishikigoi”, a beautiful brocaded carp, as part of the Koi Bonus. Complete this successfully and it will earn you either a cash prize, or another cast, which gives you another chance to win.
So don’t be coy, why not see if you can land that Lucky Koi at your favourite Microgaming casino this January!
