The creative team at Habanero strikes again with a Japanese themed online pokies game which centres around the famous Koi fish. Bursting with colour, this game not only offers a great game experience but also lucrative features and winning potential.
Game developer: Habanero
Number of reels: 5 reels
Inspired by the legends surrounding the Koi fish, the creative team at Habanero developed a free online pokies game with great winning potential. Koi Gate online pokie offers stunning visuals, bursting with colour, so creative that you might confuse it with a traditional Japanese painting.
The action takes place in a fantastic realm, where the Koi fish is the supreme being. You can see different coloured such fish in the background, set on vegetation and flowers to highlight the contrast.
The reels are centred to the screen and are designed to look like a traditional Japanese building, with the traditional roof and sliding doors. The control buttons are set under the reels, on the foundation of the house.
And you need to use these control buttons to set up your game. First of all, the structure of Koi Gate unfolds on 5 reels and 3 rows, as most modern pokies do. And it develops a total of 18 fixed pay lines, which you cannot adjust.
The coin value is available between 1 cent and 5 dollars, a rather extensive betting range which we believe is going to be appealing to more than one player type. You can also choose between 1 and 10 coins to wager, adding up to a total bet of 900 dollars.
However, if you want to skip scrolling through the game’s settings and maximise your wager instantly, you can just use the max bet button. It will help you greatly. As will the autoplay feature, which allows you to put the game in auto mode. Then, you can simply sit back and relax, while the game spins the reels for you.
There are 10 standard symbols in Koi Gate free online pokies game. The highest paying among them is the dragon, rewarding you with 7.500 coins for 5 of-a-kind, while the temple offers a top payout of 6.000 coins. Next in line is the lotus flower, which offers 3.000 coins for 5 of-a-kind, the bamboo which offers 2.000 coins tops and the leaf, which rewards you with 1.500 coins for 5 of-a-kind.
The lower-paying symbols are the waves and playing card symbols, from Ace to Jack.
All these symbols can be substituted by the wild icon, represented by the Koi fish. When it appears in a winning combination, the wild expands into the dragon to cover the entire reel. But the Koi fish appears only on reels 2, 3 and 4.
The wild also rewards you with re-spins, and each time a wild lands on the reels, you win 1 re-spin. If a wild appears on the reels in the re-spin, you will receive an additional re-spin. And the feature continues until no more wild land. And, during the re-spins, all prizes are doubled.
