Koi Gate review

Theme and Storyline

This slot is themed around a Japanese koi pond.

Players collect delicate waterlilies and ferocious dragons as wise-looking koi fish watch.

Set against rippling turquoise water, this game has a peaceful mood.

Graphics, Sounds and Animations

The gentle soundtrack has a traditional Japanese vibe filled with melodic flutes. It remains unobtrusive and players will likely be happy to leave it on for their gameplay.

The reels are framed by ornate Japanese lattices. This helps create the feeling that players are in an exquisitely kept garden.

Two hosting koi swim majestically on either side of the reels. Their bright orange colour contrasts with the azure water making the splash of their bodies more impressive.

Most symbols represent an aspect of nature, for example leaves, waves, waterlilies and bamboo. The dragon and koi symbols stand out as regal and especially well-designed.

Wild wins prompt the duel animation of a swimming koi and a flying dragon. This gives a mythical vibe to the reels.

When players begin the Re-Spins feature, the backdrop goes through a trippy transformation to become a dragon-filled sky. This furthers the feeling that there are some magical mysteries to the idyllic setting.

Gameplay

Koi Gate is a five reel, three row slot, with 18 win lines.

Win lines pay in both directions starting from either reel 1 or 5. Players winning with five symbols on one winline are paid for the line both from right to left and left to right (effectively doubling their win).

Players have the option to hit stop on the spinning reel to speed up gameplay.

Wilds, Bonuses and Free Spins

This slot has two Wild symbols (the Koi symbol and the dragon symbol). Each one substitutes for all symbols.

The Koi symbol appears only on reels 2, 3, and 4. When any Koi symbol is part of a winning combination, it expands into the dragon symbol to cover all positions before the winnings are awarded.

Players are awarded Re-Spins when one or more Koi symbols appear. Players win additional Re-Spins when one or more Koi symbols appear on screen while in the Re-Spins round.

There is no cap on Re-Spins and they continue to be awarded until a spin occurs in which no Koi symbol lands.

Players’ prizes are doubled while in the Re-Spins feature, and Re-Spins will be played according to the lines and bet of the game that triggered the feature.

The Progressive Jackpot Feature means that players may win the Progressive Jackpot at the end of any game round. This win is added to the players’ other wins.

Bet Sizes, RTP and Variance

The return to player of this game is 96.6%, above our yardstick for average of roughly 96%.

The range of bets on the site we tested ran from a minimum bet per spin of $/£/€0.18 up to a maximum of $/£/€900 per spin.

The volatility of this game is medium, which makes it a less ideal match for our preferred slot machine strategies. Our slot strategies target the highest possible volatility.

Conclusion

We recommend this high RTP, medium volatility Koi-themed slot.

This game makes up for its less desirable volatility by being a really pleasant place to hang out.

The animation and music work together to make the atmosphere feel mesmeric and fun.

Players looking for a lot of rough-and-tumble action may wish to look elsewhere, but for those looking for a dreamy escape, this game is just the ticket.
