Japan has fascinated people for a very long time, so it’s no wonder that there are multiple slot machines right now which rely on the beauty of this country for inspiration. It’s going to be an interesting mix of Japanese traditions, samurai, foods and beautiful cherry blossoms, and the result in Trip to Japan is superb. The creator of this gorgeous slot machine is Slotland.
In Trip to Japan, you’re going to discover a 5 reel slot machine, which uses 20 active lines. There will be Double Wilds to enjoy, plus free spins and scatters, not to mention multipliers as well. The regular wins will reach a value of 1,000x before any multipliers get a chance to boost the rewards significantly.
Betting and Prizes
Most of the bottom row is reserved for the betting options. You do get the option to select the value of your coins, but the focus seems to be mostly on the number of coins which will be used. The available options allow you to use 20, 100, 200, 400 or 800 coins each round. You’re going to have up to 40 coins used on each line.
The payouts will normally reach 1,000x per active line, or up to 20,000x if you fill up the reels with jackpot symbols. Add wilds with 2x multipliers, to get double that amount. Boost that payout further by winning it during the free spins which have increasing multipliers, and you could be looking at 200,000x the line bet (10,000x the stake). Those are some impressive numbers, and Trip to Japan promises to have very high potential. I’m sure there will be plenty of players that will want to play it for that alone.
Trip to Japan Slot Features
I’ve discovered several decent features in Trip to Japan, mostly revolving around various multipliers which will be used to boost rewards.
First, the Double Wild is going to show you two decorative fish next to a logo. It’s not the best looking wild I’ve seen, but it does a great job. It’s used as the game’s substitute, which will improve your win rate. It also adds a multiplier to those new wins, doubling the value of your payouts.
Second, there will also be a Gold Coin Bonus symbol present in the game. As scatter symbols, these Bonus icons are only useful to you when appearing three times. You’re going to be asked to select them next, in order for them to reveal how many free spins they give you. The rounds will start then, and as you advance through the feature you will find that the multipliers will increase by 1x after each round. 5X appears to be the highest multiplier available here, but it’s enough to turn a good day into a great one.
Theme & Design
The beautiful Japan is the one that’s celebrated here, through its culture and history. You’re going to have the image of a Japanese woman holding a hand fan for the jackpot trigger, with the rest of the symbols delivering images of a Samurai helmet, a teapot, sushi, paper birds and Royals placed on the side of paper lanterns. Add the images of the trees filled with cherry blossoms from the background, and the game looks superb.
Trip to Japan is an impressive game visually and the features tend to make it exciting to play, particularly thanks to several multipliers which can get involved.
