Mystery Nudge Feature
This feature can randomly trigger during the base game when two wilds partially land on the screen. The reel where the wilds landed will nudge and allow the wilds to cover the entire reel. This feature can also trigger during the free spins, but with only one wild.
Sakura Fortune Respin Feature
During the base game, if the player lands two or more wilds covering entire reels, the fortune re-spin will trigger. The player will get with two or more free spins, depending on the number of wilds that activated the feature.
- During these re-spins, the wilds will lock in place.
- Any additional reel covering wilds landed during the re-spins will award more spins.
You can trigger the free spins feature by landing three scatter symbols from left to right, starting from reel one.
- The wild symbol also works as a scatter so if the player lands two scatters and a wild, they will still trigger the free spins.
- The number of free spins the player will get is five. In addition, if the player triggers the free spins by landing one scatter and two full wilds the number of free spins will be seven.
- That’s because the re-spins of the fortune respins feature will be added to the free spins.
- During the free spins, the mystery nudge feature is always active. As a result, any wild landed will nudge to cover the entire reel.
- All wilds that a player lands during the free spins round will be locked in place for the duration of the feature. Any wilds that land during the free spins will award one extra spin.
Reviewers’ thoughts on Sakura Fortune Slot
If we had to judge the Sakura Fortune slot with other high volatile games, we would definitely notice that this game is more on the medium to high variance, rather than the high volatile slot games. Having said that, the potential to win big does come into play with the right amount of free spins and luck in the bonus game. All in all, we did like the expanding wilds, as it did give us quite a number of decent wins. What we would have liked to see, was a bigger number of free spins, the more the wild is visible on your reel.
