Playing online Pokie Sakura Fortune: The Best Way to Win Money Online in NZ Casinos
Sakura Fortune real money game review
The Sakura Fortune game revolves around a stacked wild representing Princess Sakura, which means "cherry blossom" in Japanese. The game also features beautiful Asian landscapes and a variety of bonus features. It is also the first game in which you can experience an innovation from Quickspin, namely the achievement system.
Sakura Fortune - Pokies Overview
Everything takes place on 5 reels, 4 rows and 40 winning combinations. You can place bets between £20 and £100 per spin on all platforms and devices. The aforementioned Achievement system comes into play on "special occasions" provided by the game. You collect tokens that you can use for nice bonuses.
Note that this game is very volatile (4.83 out of 5 points) and should be treated with caution. You can win up to 400 times your bet here, which is not very impressive for such a volatile game. The RTP is 96.58%, which is pretty good. The most interesting part of the game is the freespins feature with expanding Sticky Wilds. However, Sakura Fortune has RTP ranges so the percentage can be reduced to 90.02% depending on where you play, plus volatility will be reduced to 4 out of 5.
The most valuable symbol here is the Emperor, followed by Her Majesty the Empress. There is also the princess symbol, which acts as both a scatter and a wild. It does not bring any cash wins. And then there are medium win symbols: the Warrior Prince and some Chinese artifacts. To win, you need between 3 and 5 matching symbols on a payline. Here is the paytable of Sakura Fortune:
Emperor - 10x for 5 symbols on the payline.
Empress - 5x for 5 symbols on the payline
Warrior Prince - 3x for 5 symbols on payline
Dragon Statue - 2x for 5 symbols payline
Green Emerald Lion Statue - 2x for 5 symbols on payline
Gold, Silver, Bronze and Emerald coins - either 1.25x or 1x for 5 symbols per payline.
Sakura Fortune Bonus Features
The beautiful, red-clad warrior princess serves as both a wild and a scatter in this game, meaning she can substitute for all regular symbols to create maximum winning combinations. Moreover, the princess appears as a stacked 1x4 wild symbol and can only appear on the 3 middle reels (i.e. reels 2, 3 and 4).
The nudge feature can come into play when you have at least 2 princess widgets. When the Nudge feature is activated (which happens randomly), you will see the stacked Wilds move down until they fill the entire reel. This in turn triggers the re-spins feature.
Once you have at least 2 princess wilds on the reels, you can assume that you have her in the bag. For each new stacked wild symbol you get, you get a new respin (the nudge feature can also help you), and you get more re-spins until you run out of wild symbols.
The scatter bonus symbol is a yellow Chinese fan, and you need at least 3 of these symbols anywhere in a single spin to activate the free spins feature. First of all, you will get 5 free spins and any princesses that fall out will spread across the entire reel. Moreover, these wilds will remain for the duration of the feature. Also, for every wild you roll, you will get 1 additional free spin.
Sakura Fortune is the first game to use Quickspin's innovative success system. This system consists of 6 different game events that are rewarded with Quickspins coins. These events can be a wild or bonus symbol falling out, or triggering respins or free spins. You can then use your chips to win bonuses.
And of course, you can play Sakura Fortune on your mobile and tablet right in the best New Zealand online pokies section of our website. We know that Quickspin always gives preference to mobile platforms when developing new games. This way you can play anytime, anywhere, and all you need is your Android, iPhone or iPad.
What is the jackpot (maximum win)?
There is no jackpot to win in Sakura Fortune pokie. As far as we know, the maximum win on this game is 400 times your bet. You get it when you fill the reels with the highest paying emperor symbol in combination with stacked wild symbols. This game is not very impressive as it is very volatile, but you can win up to £40,000 if you play with the highest possible stakes.
Sakura Fortune - our verdict
Sakura Fortune is a good game, especially in terms of graphics and features going, but it is worryingly too low potential as for such a volatile pokie. A maximum win of 400x the bet is reasonable for a low volatility pokie. We really don't understand what Quickspin was thinking. On the other hand, you have the opportunity to experience the new success system here, and it seems that the low potential doesn't really bother many players.
