Boil a slot down to its purest elements and you have Fa Fa Fa, a single win line slot with just three symbols on its three reels. If you’re tired of flashy slots this could be a perfect fit for you.
The theme of Fa Fa Fa is best described as absolute minimalist. There are plenty of slots out there that have taken the online slot back to the kind of simplified fruit machine that started out the slot machine genre of gambling games. Fa Fa Fa goes much further even that.
Every extraneous feature has been pared off leaving a simple, streamlined, and actually pretty stylish game.
Everything about this slot is minimalist. It has just three symbols, three reels, and a single winline. Even the help section entries seem almost sarcastically short.
For something so basic, a lot of attention has gone into the looks of the Fa Fa Fa. The background is a classy dark pattern animated with fireflies in the foreground, the reel spins are smooth and the three symbols (each the same Chinese character in a different colour) are nicely designed.
The sound effects are similarly stripped back to just a short tune as the reels turn and a simple winning sting.
It all works well with the theme and although none of it is complicated, it is effective.
The gameplay is simple. Spin the reels to change the combinations of symbols and blank spaces on the win line. If you get three symbols on the line you win. Five times your bet if you land three of different colours; twenty-five for three greens; fifty for three blues and one hundred for three reds.
If you like simple play, this will work for you. If you are into fancy bonuses and the like, you will need to look elsewhere.
There are no wilds, bonuses, or free spins.
The game has medium volatility with plenty of the smaller five times wins rolling in on the regs. We would normally want higher volatility from a game, but it does also have a pretty tasty return to player of 97.10%.
At the site we tested the minimum bet was £/$/€0.02 per spin. The maximum bet was £/$/€80.00 per spin. This is a wide enough range to keep most players happy.
Fa Fa Fa is a slot that does almost everything right, providing you like what it is trying to do. You need to want to play a simple slot machine or else you may find yourself a little bored.
If you do enjoy simpler slots, then the RTP on this one makes it attractive.
