Koi Princess NetEnt Game
We had no idea that koi were so popular, or even that they were fish before Microgaming released Lucky Koi around a year ago. It evidently caught the eye of the competition as today sees the addition of NetEnt’s very own Koi Princess to our selection here on the site and it definitely gets off on the right foot as far as first impressions are concerned. We don’t think that the developer has ever released a bad looking game but this one is on a whole other level, with a board and video sequences that could have been taken straight out of an anime series. Being great to look at ranks below gameplay and features on our list of criteria though, so here’s hoping that this all holds up nicely as well!
Placing Stakes with a Bonus Bet
There are twenty win lines in play on Koi Princess so there’s absolutely nothing out of the ordinary to report on there. However, this is one of a rare breed of NetEnt slot games that offers players the chance to place an additional Bonus Bet. Your coin bet remains the same, so the relevant prizes do too, but the spin cost is doubled. This may sound like the worst deal ever but it leads to increased chances at hitting the random features, higher values on the wheel of fortune and bigger wins on Sure Win Free Spins. It certainly sounds good, so let’s see what all of those features are all about!
Random Base Game Features
While the reels are spinning, there’s a chance for three koi fish to swim onto the reels. If they do so, you can pick one to reveal a random board boost. This can see between four and nine wilds being added to the board for a free respin, or between two and five reels turning completely wild, again with a free respin in play. You may pick the 5-Hit feature, which will spin a wheel and choose one symbol, which could even be the wild card, to guarantee a five of a kind win on the next spin, or you can activate the main feature round instantly with the rarest of the random rewards.
Free Spins like Never Before
The randomness of the feature awards continues when you enter the main event and you’ll need to land the dragon scatter on reels one, three and five simultaneously to do so. One of four bonus rounds will be selected, with the best of these clearly the Sure Win Free Spins. These take the form of ten free spins where every one will guarantee a prize worth a certain multiple of your total stake. The prize amount isn’t capped either and a golden dragon on the board can add up to five random wilds to the board on each game. Another possibility is the Wild Reels Free Spins, where ten spins are awarded once again and between one and five reels will be completely wild on each of them. There’s also a click to win wheel of fortune as mentioned as part of our coverage of the Extra Bet and also a nice and simple instant cash win.
Koi Princess has plenty of features to offer and it will take a while to get used to all of them given that you can never be sure when one will hit! Nevertheless, it is well worth exploring as the title is lots of fun to play and can be found both online and on mobile devices in the form of Koi Princess Touch. The real money versions of each can be found at the great gaming brands in the sidebar and if you’d prefer to give it a risk free try first, be sure to head back to the top of the page to play the full game with no deposit or download required.
