You do not seem to get that many Japanese-themed slot machines nowadays, so the Matsuri slot from Play N’ Go is a welcome surprise. Boasting a plethora of features and a gorgeous design, this is a slot that you will almost certainly love.
The Matsuri slot machine from Play N Go boasts 5 reels and 10 paylines. The minimum bet per spin is 25p. The maximum bet per spin is £100.
Matsuri is a traditional Japanese festival. The game is based around that. The artwork on this game is absolutely sublime. In fact, this may be one of the best ‘Asian-themed’ slots we have seen in years. The epic backdrop of the ocean and the nighttime city really sets the tone of the game. The symbols on the slot are things that we would ‘expect’ to pick up from the Matsuri festival. So, lanterns, flowers, ice slushies, oriental ladies (no, we do not expect to pick them up, but we would assume they are in abundance during Matsuri).
Basically, the game looks amazing. It is so gorgeous. Couple this with the beautiful theme in the back of the game, and you have something which is truly beautiful. Of course, the theme of the game is only a little bit of the ‘battle’. You need to look at what else the slot brings to the table to decide whether it is amazing or not. Thankfully, this slot brings a lot in that regard.
Matsuri slot is easy to play. There are a few features in place but nothing that is going to completely blow your mind in terms of complexity.
However, because it is a slot which has a high variance, we tend to recommend this to people who have slightly larger bank rolls. This is likely going to be the people who have been playing slots for a while. We do not think we have encountered a newcomer to the world of slots who knows how to properly manage their bank roll. Actual shame, that!
The Matsuri mobile slot is every bit as good as the ‘desktop’ version. Actually, we lie, it is even better. The colours in the game are gorgeous too. We know that Play N’ Go had a couple of problems with the mobile slots that they were putting together in the past, but it now looks like those issues have been well and truly rectified.
Other than the wild symbol (acts as a substitute for all other symbols in the game), you have a couple of features in the Matsuri slot. This includes:
Matsuri Festival free spins: if you get three or more of the festival masks on the reels at once (they can only appear on the 1st, 3rd, and 5th reel), you will get 8 free spins. If you get more masks during the free spins mode, you are awarded 2 extra free spins.
The maximum you can get is 20. While there is no multiplier in place during this round, all wilds that you get will be expanded wilds. They will then move across the reels until they reach the 5th. Then they just ‘drop off’. So, if you get a wild on the first reel, you could potentially have five spins with an expanded wild on it.
Kingyo Sukui: this feature occurs when you get three Koi carp symbols on the reels. This is just a ‘pick’ game where you can win cash prizes.
The return to player in Matsuri slot is a decent 96.17%, although it is a high variance slot so you can’t expect those wins to come in ‘fast’ like on other slots, however, when they do come in, the wins tend to be on the higher side of things.
We love the theme of the Matsuri slot. It is just so beautiful. Couple this with the fact that it boasts some fun features and you have an awesome play experience. The only downside is that most of the wins will come from triggering these features. You don’t see much in ‘standard’ play.
