In Japanese Matsuri is simply the word for a festival and that’s as good a reason as any to design an online slot machine around this theme; Matsuri is developed by Play N Go, it includes several different bonus features and it’s explained in detail below.
Matsuri is a five reel slot with three rows and twenty five fixed paylines; the transparent reels are separated by delicate pink lines and the backdrop is a view across a placid lake to a town on the opposite shore where a festival is well underway.
All the symbols are related to the theme and include three girls – one with a toffee apple, one with a fan and one with a mask, a rosette, a fan, a bowl of food, an ice cream and some snacks on a stick.
The wild symbol is a fire lantern which will substitute for all others to form winning combos except for the bonuses – the festival masks and the Koi carp.
Matsuri Festival Free Spins
This is triggered by landing three or more of the festival mask symbols anywhere on reels one, three and five; you will initially receive 8 free spins but landing any masks during this round will award 2 extra spins up to a maximum of 20.
If a wild symbol lands on the reels during this round it will expand to fill all positions on that reel and then move one reel to the left per spin until it drops off the end.
Trigger this by landing three of the Koi carp symbols anywhere on reels two, three and four; this is a picking game in which you must collect fish from the pond for cash prizes until your paper spoon breaks or you’ve caught them all.
Matsuri brings some welcome variation to the orientally-themed slot – the graphics and animations are superb and in our experience it wasn’t too difficult to trigger the bonus features. Check it out!
