Golden Lotus – Online Slot Review
RTG’s newest video slot release takes you to the Orient where the lotuses are gold, the ponds are a soothing jade colour and the feeling is one of serenity as you enjoy… Golden Lotus.
Welcoming you with serene music from the Orient, this new twenty-five line, five-reel real series video slot give you the chance to win two progressive random jackpots… a minor & a major. You can begin play on all lines of this game for $1.00 or as high as $125.00 total spin value.
There are a total of eleven regular paying symbols in the game. Five symbols are related to the Orient with the remaining six being the card values of nine to ace. Two of the symbols, the logo symbol and geisha girl, only require two on a payline to be awarded a win. The remaining symbols require three on a payline. The highest paying symbol of the game in regular play is the logo symbol and will award you 8,888 coins if five appear on a payline.
The wild symbol of the game is the golden lotus and substitutes for all other symbols (with the exception of the white lotus) to complete a winning combination for you. Should three or more golden lotuses appear anywhere on your screen, it will trigger the Chinese Garden Feature.
Presented with a new screen of eight golden lotuses floating in a pond, you choose four of the lotuses to reveal a multiplier of up to one hundred times your bet or to reveal five, ten, fifteen or twenty free games. During feature game play any white lotus that appears will change to a gold lotus or the logo symbol. All wins are tripled during feature play and play can re-trigger as well.
The scatter symbol of the game is the white lotus. Two scatters, appearing anywhere on your screen, will pay you even money on your triggering bet. Three or more will trigger the White Lotus Feature and will award you eight free spins with a random multiplier; of three, four or five; revealed at the top of your screen during a win in free spin play.
Any white lotus that appears during free spin play are changed to a golden lotus or logo symbols. The Chinese Garden Feature cannot trigger in White Lotus play, however if three or more golden lotus appear, it will re-trigger this feature again for you.
Beginning with $50 & playing all twenty-five lines, I started my play at $1.00 per spin. Within a total of 172 spins the wild symbol completed a total of 40 winning combinations for me, two of those awarding me $16.40 each. The scatter symbol paid me even money on my triggering bet nine times and the White Lotus Feature triggered twice paying me $10.20 & $34.40 respectively. The Chinese Garden Feature never triggered within my 172 spins. I ended play with a balance of half of what I came in with.
Another wonderful slot by RTG! Although the Chinese Garden Feature never triggered for me during play, the White Lotus Feature did; twice, and it certainly kept me in play for quite awhile. Along with that, the wild helped out a lot too having completed 40 winning combinations for me. All in all, I believe there’s a lot to potentially win on this slot but I think it’s one of those slots that you’ve just got “to hang in there” on & have lady luck on your side as it doesn’t hit big payers too often.
I’d definitely play this slot again & recommend everyone try it… even if it’s just at twenty-five cents per spin.
