The lotus flower is one of those rare specimens that, if you get to see it in its natural environment, can by hypnotically beautiful. That’s not something that many of us will get to see in our lifetimes, but fortunately, RTG have given us the next best thing. This slot game brings not only the flower to life on your screen, but an Eastern flair too.

This includes its various symbols. So, the standard playing card symbols all have an appealing East Asian design, and they’re joined by other thematic symbols, such as the green jade statue, the Chinese vase, and the pagoda. There’s also an icon of a beautiful geisha, another of a Chinese symbol and finally two lotus flowers, one of which is gold in colour.

As far as the overall setup of this RTG slot is concerned, you’ll see a layout that consists of five reels and three rows in total. Across this layout, the developer has added a total of 25 paylines into proceedings. These lines are fully customisable though, with the relevant up and down buttons found at the bottom of the reels. You will be also be able to alter your overall bet value between 25p and £125 per spin.

Special Features

You’ll be able to see two progressive jackpots on display at either side of the reels at the top. These will increase whenever someone places a bet on Golden Lotus, with one being the Minor Jackpot and the other being the Major Jackpot. These can pay out quite randomly at the end of any standard spin, regardless of bet size.

Golden Lotus Flower

A game like this wouldn’t be right without its own wild symbol, and actually, it’s the gold-coloured lotus flower that operates as this addition. Therefore, whenever this one comes into view on the reels you’ll see it substituting for all other standard symbols.

The only exemption from this rule is the scatter icon. Yet, with the wild symbol in play, you can add plenty of extra wins to your tally.

Chinese Garden Feature – The Chinese Garden perk is triggered by the appearance of three or more golden lotus wild symbols. This takes you to a pick screen where you’re given four picks from eight golden lotus flowers. Each of the lotuses that you choose will provide a reward of up to 100x the bet that triggered the round.

Alternatively, you’ll receive 5, 10, 15 or 20 free spins from a flower. During the free spins round, all white lotus scatter symbols are transformed into the golden lotus flower addition. Plus, all prizes earned in free spins receive a triple multiplier as well.

White Lotus Flower

It’s the white lotus flower that acts as the game’s scatter symbol. This one is able to show up in any location across the reels and still reward you with a pay-out.

It does this by multiplying your total stake by a predetermined amount, which increases in value the more scatters there are in view.

Freespins – The scatter symbol is also able to trigger its own White Lotus free spins round for you to play through. It takes the appearance of three or more of these scatters in any location to activate the round, and doing so will give you eight free spins to enjoy.

During this feature round, all of the white lotus symbols are transformed into the gold lotus wild. Furthermore, all prizes will receive a multiplier of times 3, 4 or 5 during it.

Verdict

There’s one thing you can say about plenty of RTG’s older games: graphics aside, they tend to provide a thoroughly entertaining time with their inbuilt features. Golden Lotus is no exception to this rule, offering up a diverse and thrilling slot game with two different free spins rounds, a wild symbol, and a scatter to enhance it. With gameplay like that you don’t mind the older aesthetics.
