Sakura Fortune

Published: April 11, 2017|Updated: September 1, 2020

Mega High Risk, Wild Reels and Free Spins for 1,087x Wins

It’s the 3rd game from Quickspin’s 2017 “extra volatile” series. And just like the March-released Leprechaun Hills, the probability of winning over 100x the total bet is way better than the games before. Better yet, the RTP is around 96.56% or the same as the mega-successful Crystal Queen. And we’re just getting started because it’s also a candidate for the Game of the Year 2017 award. It’s the Sakura Fortune slot and it’s got quite a story to tell.

To help you win up to 1,087x the total bet, this Japanese slot presents Stacked Wilds, re-spins, Mystery Nudges and Free Spin.

So if you like how risky Hot Sync is and can live without win multipliers, then Sakura Fortune is already available for play since 11th April 2017. Give it a try for free or at lower stakes first, as it may take quite a few spins to get a payout.

Here’s a quick breakdown of the 3 main features or what’s in it for you.

To start with, here’s the official Sakura Fortune video trailer by Quickspin:

Stacked Wilds with Mystery Nudge – Wilds Substitute for All Symbols, Even Scatters

On top of the 9 basic but stacked symbols, for which you can win up to 10x your total stake, there’s the Princess Wild.

Unlike regular Stacked Wilds, she can substitute for all Sakura Fortune symbols, including the bonus ones. And that’s not all, because similarly to NetEnt’s Secret of Atlantis, these wilds can also nudge, like in the good old fruit machines.

It’s called the Mystery Nudge feature and it can make the Princess Wild expand even if you get 1/4 of it. Note that not all of them will expand on appearance, so no guarantees there.

There are a few more limitations too. For instance, the Princess Wild icon only appears on reels 2, 3 and 4. And she doesn’t have a coin value.

Speaking of that, you can find a similar feature with Stacked Wilds in the 40-line Royal Frog slot too, with up to four expanded wild symbols, some even with a x2 multiplier.

And there’s still more to it.

Sakura Fortune Re-spin Feature – Win Up to 3x Free Re-spins and 3x Stacked Wilds

Get 2 or more Stacked Princess Wilds to win up to 3 free re-spins with wild reels.

Nudges and Stacked Wilds is just the beginning.

The Sakura Fortune mobile slot has one more surprise in the base game and it’s to do with re-spins.

Simply put, get 2 or 3 Stacked Princess Wilds on any of the middle reels and you’ll get 2 or 3 re-spins, respectively. They are completely free and will freeze all wild reels, making it far easier to hit a win again.

If you manage to win one more Wild symbol during the 2 re-spins, it’ll also expand and give you +1 spin. So there’s up to 3 re-spins to be won in total, for big wins.

And if you’re a fan of that, then more re-spins with Wild symbols can also be found in Quickspin’s most pay-line rich video slot, the 243 Ways Phoenix Sun.

But we’re still not finished – here come the big guns.

Free Spins Bonus – Win 7 — 12 Free Spins with 3x Stacked Wilds and 3x Extra Spins

Win up to 12 Free Spins with sticky wild reels and a chance to win +3 more spins (Wilds replace Bonuses too).

This is the shortcut to Sakura Fortune’s jackpot.

To win up to 12 Free Spins, you need 3 or more Bonus symbols on 3 consecutive reels, starting with the leftmost one.

Even though Wilds can also substitute Bonus icons, the catch is that you’d still need that 1x Bonus symbol on reel 1, at least. This is because Princess Wilds appear only in the middle.

Note: The Sakura Fortune Re-spin feature is always played before the Free Spins bonus, if any.

Once you get through to the bonus round, it gets easier.

In other words, just like in Spinions, where Wild symbols stick for the duration of the bonus, so do the Stacked Princess Wilds in the Sakura slot. What’s more, you also get +1 extra free spin for every additional Expanding Wild, up to 3 in total.

So in the best-case scenario, you can win up to 15 Free Spins with 3x Stacked Wilds, and 1,087x the total stake in your pocket, hopefully.

Win up to 3 extra spins in the bonus for Princess Wilds.

Play Sakura Fortune Slot From 11th April 2017

Just like the earlier Leprechaun Hills slot of theirs, Quickspin has kept Sakura Fortune simple with 40 bet-lines and 5 reels.

With a beautiful cherry blossom in the background, there are quite a few exciting features to look forward to. There’s just one warning – the game is played at the highest volatility (5 out of 5).

Here are the 3 features that the female warrior has for you:

  • Stacked Wilds and Mystery Nudge – win up to 3x Stacked Wilds on the middle reels, with or without a random symbol nudge.
  • Sakura Fortune Re-spins – get 2 to 3 free re-spins for 2 or 3 stacked or expanded Princess Wilds on reels 2—3.
  • Free Spins bonus – win up to 12 free spins with sticky wild reels and chances to win +3 extra spins.

That said, the new game is available on desktop and mobile play since 11th April 2017.

For that high-risk gameplay, I also recommend you try the 14th March-released Leprechaun Hills or Hot Sync, with a jackpot of 2,848x the total bet, that came out earlier in 2017.
