Matsuri Slot Review

The Matsuri slot from Play N’ Go is easily one of the best slots the company has produced in years. Let us tell you a little bit about it!

Matsuri Slot Overview

How to Play Matsuri Slot Machine

The Matsuri slot machine was first launched in March 2017. It offers 5 reels and 25 paylines. The minimum bet per spin is 25p. The maximum bet is £100. Since this is a high volatility slot, we can imagine that most people are likely going to be better down the lower end of the market on this.

There are several features to be found in the game. We will discuss those in a short while. The slot is based around the Japanese festival of Matsuri. As you can imagine, just like most other Asian-themed slots out there, the aesthetics are beautiful. 

In fact, we know that Play N’ Go pump out some amazing slots but we are willing to go as far as to say that this is one of the best games we have played in years from them (on the theming front)

The game is simple to understand. As you will discover in a short while, there are several features that can be found in the slot but none of them are so overwhelming that you won’t have the foggiest about what is going on.

In our opinion, while beginners will be able to jump into this game with ease, the fact that it is a high volatility slot means that it seems to be more targeted at the upper end of the market i.e. the more experienced players.

The mobile version of Matsuri is where this game really shines, however. It looks beautiful on the smaller screen and the gameplay is incredibly smooth. Mobile players certainly would not be disappointed with it. 

Matsuri Slot Machine Bonus Features

While the Matsuri slot is not particularly brimming with features, there is enough going on here to keep even the most-experienced slot player having a bit of fun. This includes:

Matsuri Wilds: Yes. We know that all slots tend to offer wilds, but still worth pointing out we reckon. The symbol acts as a replacement for all other symbols on the slot (bar the scatter). The wild can appear on any of the five reels.

Free Spins: awesome stuff! You need to get three of the scatters anywhere on the reels to trigger this feature. You then get 8 free spins. Each time you get a scatter on the reels during the free spins, you get 2 more free spins (maximum of 20). The wilds expand during this game mode and they ‘walk’ across the reels (i.e. each time you get a wild, it will cover the whole of the reel. The next spin it will move one position to the right)
Kingyo Sukui Bonus Game: 3 goldfish anywhere on the reels will trigger this feature. You have to catch goldfish. Each has a cash prize.

Matsuri Slot Tips

Matsuri has a house edge of 3.83%. it is a high volatility slot, which means your overall play style will need to be a touch different to some of the other slots that you find on this website.

The thing with a high volatility slot is that why the possibility to earn some larger wins are there, they will not come in frequently. If you have a small bank roll then you will likely wish to give Matsuri a skip as you will not be able to make that much money like this. You will be blowing through your bank roll quickly. Our suggestion, if you wish to win a decent sum of cash, is to keep your bets low (around the 25p mark). You can play for longer like that.

Summary - What Do We Think?

Here at we have love Matsuri. While it is not amazing on the feature level, with everything that you find in the game easy to find in other slots, we really do love the overall aesthetics. This is a game that we return to very often. It comes highly recommended from us.
