Are you ready for something truly exquisite? Makitone Gaming has an exclusive offer just up your alley: Secrets of a Geisha slot machine is truly the one and only. Let’s face it; the geisha topic is not that widely popular among the software providers. Those we have on the market now don’t strike us as something state of the art! Secrets of Geisha managed to make a great entertainment with some awesome graphics based on not a popular topic. Impressive. 

But first things first, Secrets of a Geisha is a five-reel video slot with 25 lines. The lines are fixed, so you are allowed to change only the total bet amount. The overall gameplay is really simple. You fix the total spin wager: which may go from as little as 0.25 to some substantial 125.00. Afterwards, you make a spin in either an auto mode if you would like some endless spinning, or you may take one spin at a time in a plain manual mode.

Any winning combination in the slot has to start on the leftmost reel and consist of several matching symbols. Tiles here are partially taken from cards, or Geisha-themed. What catches the eye is some great incidental animation. Every time you hit a win, the winning combo gets highlighted by some animated action, arranged just right to be entertaining but not to the point of being annoying.

Speaking of tiles, the ones from the cards are low-hand paysymbols. Jacks, 9s and 10s are worth 80x the bet for the set of five. Five Queens, Kings or Aces are worth 100 times the line wager. Themed icons are high-end in terms of payouts. Say a traditional Japanese-style hair pin and a Parasol are paid 200 times the line wager for five. Kimono and traditional Sandals are paid 400x the wager for five. What’s more, high-end tiles come with a nifty perk. Their combos start not with the usual three icons — their minimum for a combo is only two tiles. As might be expected, the multiplier here won’t be high. For the first two tiles of the aforementioned it’s only 2x the bet, while for the Kimono and Sandals it’s up to 5x the wager for two of a kind. But that is relatively unusual and plays into the gamblers’ hands. 

No slot can do without any special feature icons. Here, we have a classic combo of a Wild and a Scatter. The Scatter is a tile with a Geisha wearing a pink kimono. As any other scatter it is a paysymbol as well as a bonus-feature tile. The winning combo with a Geisha tile may start from just two icons. In this case your win gets doubled. For let’s say five of a kind, your wager gets multiplied 300 times. The other side of a Scatter is its bonus potential, here, Geisha tile triggers free games. If you land at least three scatters on the reels, you may get up to 10 free spins with up to 3x multiplier. 

Where there is a Scatter, there is a Wild. At the Secret of a Geisha, the Wild is a Fan tile. It’s functions are pretty much ordinary. The Fan tile is a substitute to any symbol, but another scatter. Its main goal is to form a winning combo, taking the place of a missing symbol. The wild not only helps to create a combo, it actually doubles the payout for the one. What’s more, the Wild may be a regular paysymbol as well. Say you land two Wilds on a line, the payout will be 5 times the wager. For as many as five, your reward will be a 4,000 payout.

After every win you have a choice either to take in and to go on with spinning, or you may accept a challenge and go for the double up extra. It’s like a bonus round you don’t have to wait for. You may trigger it with any spin. Potentially. Double up is literally a chance to double your win. All you have to do is to pass a simple challenge and pick a higher card than your dealer has picked. If you succeed, the win gets doubled and you go on with your game.
