As at least one bit of Microgaming promotional material explains, “The colorful koi fish can bring you peace and tranquility, and they can also bring you lots of excitement and big jackpots in this 4-reel, 25-payline slots game.” In other words, Lucky Koi is another high-quality, high-paying online slot game by the big software company.
The milieu is the Japanese garden, with the specific theme of – you bet! – the koi pond. In spite of the promises of excitement, things are kept pretty chill and zen in the Lucky Koi slot game: The music is mellow, the musical riffs playing on a win are best described as pleasant. The Lucky Koi logo itself is the wild, while the grail symbol (!) is the scatter. Both of these work in typical fashion, i.e. the former helps to make up winning combinations on the active payline(s) as the latter awards a bonus round when three or more land anywhere on the reels on a single spin.
Refreshingly free of poker card symbols, the reels of Lucky Koi are populated with nicely rendered depictions of the eponymous koi fish, water lilies, gold coins (perhaps tossed in by some courting paramour, hopefully wishing for his/her love to be reciprocated and where is this stream of consciousness leading), turtles, dragonflies, frogs and such.
You gotta love the way the Lucky Koi slot game awards the bonus rounds. Once the three scatters are landed, the player may choose between two coinage-winning opportunities: He/she can play 30 (!) free spins, with winnings given a multiplier equal to the number of scatters landed to launch the bonus free game, i.e. between 3x and 5x.
Alternatively, the player may opt for a “Pick ‘Em” bonus game wherein he/she is presented with a dozen virtual koi. The player simply picks and clicks on the koi he/she likes bet, bags a bonus multiplier, and keeps on selecting until choosing a stopper. Personally speaking, it’s a bit difficult to imagine any player choosing the pick ‘em round; I mean, you’re playing the Lucky Koi slot game in order to spin reels and get wins, right? So take the free spins and get more of what you came here for!
At 25 paylines, the max possible wager on a spin is 250 coins for a possible high bet of $1,250. Lucky Koi may also be considered a penny slot machine, with a low wager of 25¢ per spin when covering all paylines.
