Geisha Wonders Pokie Review
Geisha Wonders has two progressive jackpots shared with the other two games of the series, Tiki Wonders and Icy Wonders. This means you can win a life-changing amount playing any of the three games. The reviewed progressive pokie has a strong oriental, particularly, Japanese feel with lots of themed symbols that add an elegant and lovely touch to the game. Along with two jackpots, you have here a high-paying wild symbol, up to 30 free spins and a chance to win a non-progressive jackpot of $24,000.
This 5-reel 30-payline pokie has detailed symbols that include four lanterns as low-win symbols and five thematic symbols such as a Japanese fan ($300 for five of a kind), a teapot ($500), a bonsai tree ($600), a koi ($1000) and a cat statuette ($2000). All of these symbols pay from left to right on a payline, like many other payline-based pokies. Bet sizes start at $0.30 and run up to $60 per spin.
The pokie is interesting in its own right, even if it had not been equipped with a progressive jackpot. The payouts are excellent, the graphical aspect is good, too, but it stands to mention the game lacks some polish and sophistication that tend to be present in latest releases of the developer. Anyway, availability of not one but two progressives outweighs the downsides, however small or big they might be.
A Buddha statue is a wild that stands in for other symbols, except for scatters and jackpot symbols. It substitutes and also generates payline wins by itself. Hitting 2 to 5 wilds left to right awards x5 to x10 000 times the line bet, or $20 000 at max. Really, this is a stunning win amount for a progressive game.
Scatter and free spins
Progressive are not won every 100 spins or so, but free spins are. To trigger the feature, three, four or five geishas are required to land in any position. They are scatters, so they count everywhere. Depending on the number of triggering scatters (3, 4 or 5), you get 10, 20 or 30 free games. Before the feature begins, you get an instantaneous payout of x2 to x400 the total bet (up to $24,000 at the maximum stake). During free spins, your wins will be at double the normal values specified in the paytable. So if, for example, you hit five wilds in free spins, the award will equal $40,000 at max.
Ins and outs of the progressive jackpot
Geisha Wonders and other pokies of the Wonders collection have the same jackpot amount across the online casino network. When a gamer who plays a Wonders pokie for real money places a bet, a certain portion of that bet comes to feed the jackpot pool. It takes gamers about 2.5 months to hit the higher jackpot, Mega Wonder, and its average win is €239,000. The amount is always displayed in Euro and if you play the game in any other currency, a jackpot win amount will be converted from your currency into EUR. The biggest win ever recorded for the Mega Wonder jackpot exceeds €850,000.
A Mega Wonder jackpot is won when five small yellow stars appear on the screen as overlaid elements to regular symbols. A Wonder jackpot is smaller in size and it normally reaches a few thousand Euros. It can be hit by landing four yellow star symbols. Net Entertainment clearly states that the probability of landing 4 or 5 jackpot stars increases as a bet size goes up.
Geisha Wonders is a progressive pokie with two jackpots, which uses oriental motifs. The highest normal win reaches a massive $40,000 in free spins. Besides, you enjoy up to 30 free spins, a generous wild symbol and equally lucrative scatters that pay out $24,000 at max. The game is not available on mobile.
