Sakura Fortune Slot Review
If our understanding of Japanese is correct, Sakura means cherry blossom in Japan and you will find plenty of blossoms in Sakura Fortune, Quickspin’s five-reel slot with 40 fixed paylines. The land of the rising sun brings you the tale of Princess Sakura, who is looking for the love of her life and every gamer that helps her meet the Prince will be generously rewarded. Princess is the four-tiles-high Wild in the 2017 release and also is in charge of triggering the Sakura Fortune Respin feature, while her Hand Fan is the Scatter that triggers the Free Spins feature.
The reels are completely surrounded by cherry blossoms, which looks simply amazing. The Princess is the Wild that can be four cells high and can cover the entire reel. The Hand Fan is the Scatter that triggers the Free Spins feature. We presume that the grey-haired Man is her Father, while the Woman is the Mother. The Handsome young Man is probably the Prince. There is also the red Dragon statue among high-value symbols, as well as a jade Lion. Four different types of Coins are used for low-paying icons.
When talking about the rules of the game, we have to say that gameplay is as easy as pie, so punters will be spinning the reels like pros in no time at all. The Quickspin title features five reels, four rows and benefits from 40 fixed paylines, which pay left to right, starting from the far left reel. Three of a kind is the minimum for landing payouts. Betting starts at £0.20 and the biggest possible bet players can place is set at £100 per single spin. All of you who played other Quickspin titles will find that the control panel is pretty standard and offers all the usual options.
The Princess Wild lands only on reels 2, 3 and 4 and acts both as Wild and a Scatter, meaning that it can substitute for Hand Fan Scatter and trigger the Free Spins feature. Land two Wilds fully stacked and you will trigger the Sakura Fortune Respin feature. Depending on the number of Wilds that triggered the feature, gamers will get a corresponding number of respins. Land additional Wilds during respins and get extra respins. If two Wilds land on the reels in base game and don’t cover entire reels, a Mystery Nudge may occur, which may make the Wilds cover the entire reels and trigger respins.
To trigger the Free Spins feature, players need to land three or more Scatters on consecutive reels, starting from the leftmost reel. Every time a Wild is landed during freebies, it will cover the entire reel and turn into a Sticky Wild, remaining locked on the position until the end of the feature and also rewarding you with an additional free spin.
As for the maximum possible payout, our sources tell us that it is set at about 950 times the bet in a single spin. The Father pays the most, offering 10 times the bet for five of a kind, while the Mother offers 5 times the bet for the maximum combination. Use the Wilds that cover the entire reels to get bigger payouts. Sakura Fortune’s RTP is 96.61%.
Sakura Fortune on Mobile
Even though the 2017 release is set in traditional Japan, the Quickspin title is very up-to-date when it comes to modern technologies, allowing gamers to experience the beauties of cherry blossoms from the comforts of their chairs or on the go. Sakura Fortune is playable across all devices and the quality of the game is completely the same on every single gadget.

It is God’s honest truth that we are big fans of Quickspin products. We simply adore their video slots and Sakura Fortune is no exception. Awesome visuals, fitting soundtrack and a quality gameplay combined with stacked Wilds, mystery nudges, respins and free spins makes the 2017 release a great choice for every spinner out there. Our personal favourite is the Free Spins feature, where you get extra free spins and Sticky Stacked Wilds that cover the entire reel until the end of the feature. We will definitely come back to collect more cherry blossoms and we invite all of you to join us, you won’t regret it.
