Sakura Fortune 2 is the sequel many of us have been waiting for, and now it’s here! This brand new Quickspin title comes with upgraded graphics, new symbols, and a much bigger max win. Read our comprehensive slot review and get ready to join the heroine on her quest to hunt down the legendary sword!
New symbols and bigger wins
The original Sakura Fortune was released by Quickspin back in April 2017. Now, exactly five years later, the sequel is here with heaps of improvements and a potential max win that is many times higher than in its predecessor. But although Sakura Fortune 2 has new symbols and some mathematical tweaks, the main feature is still Sakura Wilds that can nudge in place and stick to the reels.
First, let’s take a brief look at the basics: Sakura Fortune 2 is a 5-reel slot with 576 ways to win. Some of the symbols you might remember from the original game have been replaced by a set of new symbols. The premium Sensei symbol is now the top payer, followed by Tomoe, Yoshida, the Jizu statue, and the Koi statue.
Like in the first slot, Sakura Wilds can land on any of the three middle reels in the base game. When any Sakura Wild lands, there is a chance they nudge in to cover the entire reel. Each Sakura Wild that covers the reel locks in place and triggers a re-spin. More Sakura Wilds can land during a re-spin, giving you a chance to fill all middle reels with stacked wild symbols.
Landing three or more sword scatters triggers the Fortune Free Spins bonus. During the bonus, Sakura Wilds always nudge to cover the entire reel. In addition, they lock on the reel and remain in place for the entire bonus. If you get the bonus with four or five scatters, you unlock an enhanced bonus with extra free spins and one or two locked wild reels from the start:
- Three sword scatters: 9 free spins
- Four sword scatters: 10 free spins + 1 locked Sakura Wild
- Five sword scatters: 11 free spins + 2 locked Sakura Wilds
Buy three, four or five scatters
Sakura Fortune 2 is a superb sequel to Quickspin’s fan favorite from 2017, and its math model is much more volatile: the perfect spin can reward you with 19,664x your bet. The studio has also added a bonus buy feature that gives you the option to buy three, four or five scatters in one go. Buying the Sakura Fortune 2 free spins bonus with at least three scatters costs 55x, four scatters costs 70x, and all five scatters costs 320x your bet.
