Review and recommendations by our testing team
- Sakura Fortune slot can be called one of the top games. The best game with the highest results, probably only BigBot Crew slot is better, both have almost the same mechanics, but at the same time, BigBot Crew has much greater potential. Sakura Fortune was able to become well know, thanks to the potential of obtaining three wild reels, which are staying on several spins, this can happen (triggering big wins) not only during the free spins but also during the usual spins. Getting free spins is not that easy as it looks. In my opinion, BigBot Crew has a much higher potential of triggering a large win of several thousand bets, while Sakura Fortune is almost unable to reach the size of 1000x total bets.
- In the usual spins, without the participation of the bonus feature, the slot gives only small winnings from less than the nominal bet size to only a few bets, while sometimes making long series of spins without payment combinations. The potential of getting a larger win is still happening, and during the tests, it was possible to get a win of more than 100x bets, with only one wild reel. However, most of the medium and big combinations are triggered when re-spin happens, which are awarded when two or three Sakura symbols (wilds) appear on the reels (2-4). Sakura symbols can appear on the reels as a full size (size 1-3), and small size with a possible shift in the centre (triggered quite often, but mostly only with two symbols).
- The number of re-spins is the same as the number of Sakura symbols (2 or 3).
- The final total win will depend not only on the type of symbol in the first reel but also on the location of Sakura symbols. This means that, when Sakura symbols are on reels 2 and 3, the win is guaranteed, but not large (most of the time around 20x-40x bets), and when they come in reels 2 and 4, the win can be minimal or there can be no win at all. When you get three Sakura symbols almost surely you will have a big win of 100+ total bet.
- The free spin feature is triggered when three bonus game symbols are shown on the reels, or a combination of the bonus game symbol and wild symbol (Sakura), which will increase big the chance of trigger during the re-spin. The gameplay of free spins is absolutely the same as in the usual spins, with the difference only in the "100% sure" Sakura shift to the centre. The final win will depend on the number of Sakuras shown, their location and the number of spins left after that. So, if the slot gives out all 3 Sakura symbols from the first spins, it is possible to expect the win of 250x-400x bets, and when there are none of Sakura symbols or there is one in the fourth reel, the win can be minimal or can be 0 (which is happening now and then). The average win of the bonus game is 40x-60x.
Sakura Fortune is not recommended playing with an active bonus, as slot doesn’t keep the balance well. While playing for real money, short gaming sessions are recommended, as this slot often plays positive and negative series and if you managed to get one large or a series of medium wins, it is recommended leaving the machine. It is recommended playing the strategies of progressive bets, as well as the game with higher bets in the first few spins of the game session, as often the slot gives a bonus game "in the first spin".
Personal testers opinion
The maximum winning during the tests reached 339x, and the frequency of falling out of the pay combinations reaches 17.93%. But the probability of catching the bonus is equal to 0.73% (Statistically, every 137th spin). Also, 32% of the total fund of bets will go to winnings in free spins. I believe the slot is not designed to complete the bonus requirements (wagering is 3,73 out of 10.)

Description of the slot machine
You have 5 reels, and 40 pay-lines in the game and their number cannot be changed. You need at least three identical images on the line to form prize combination. Such a chain is lined up only from the first reel. The bets dispersion is also encouraging. The range from 0.20 to 80 credits will suit all categories of players. There is no game of chance. But there are free spins, re-spins and Mystery Nudge function, which can move the Wild symbol to the entire column.
The interface of the slot
Emerald shades with bright pink sakura flowers create a spring mood. A beautiful melody brings calm. But then a girl in red appears, and intrigue begins. The main thing is that Japanese beauty in red can expand on the whole reel, and even start the re-spins. The control panel does not differ from other Quickspin slots. You will find bet change, auto-spin and start buttons on the usual places. The sound and intro can be turned off in the settings.

Symbols and payouts
The size of your winnings increases proportionally to the bet. Let's see what the slot is capable of:
- Multi-coloured coins with holes regularly replenish your piggy bank with 12 - 100 coins.
- Dragon and Lion statuettes give out prizes in the amount of 24 to 160 coins.
- Samurai, Elder and Lady are ready to pay the player a winning of 32 to 800 coins.
- Wild - girl in red. Appears only on the middle reels, but it takes 4 positions at once. It replaces the missing symbols in combinations and even Scatter.
- Scatter - golden Fan. Falls on all the reels and starts free spins.
Three or more Scatter symbols trigger 7 free spins. During them, Wild symbol occupies the entire column and remains in place until the end of the spins. Two wild symbols activate re-spins. The girl is swinging her sword but stays in place, and the rest of the reels are scrolled two more times. Another one Wild appearance prolongs the re-spins. This function works not only during a series of free spins but also in the base game.
In the base game, the Mystery Nudge function will join the re-spins. When two Wilds fall on the screen at least partially, you can be showered with sakura leaf's, wild symbols will occupy the whole reel, and you get additional re-spins.
