Geisha Slots

GeishaBuilt by Aristocrat, Geisha is a slot machine with an Asian theme, the main focus being on the Japanese in this case. Things like the use of the geisha or the snow capped mountains with cherry blossom trees nearby will give you the same idea, these things being known mostly for being part of the Japanese culture. The game has its pros, with a decent collection of features which is available in a lot of new slots these days, but also with some parts of the design that are not very fun to look at (I’m looking at you, playing cards).

Geisha comes with 5 reels and with 25 active lines on them. You will get from them wild symbols, multipliers, free spins and scatters, while top rewards will offer you 9,000 times the line bet back, or up to $900,000 with the right wager.

Features of Geisha

The feature list of Geisha includes a wild symbol that can double prizes, a scatter and the round with free spins. That’s about it for the features, but it should be enough for most players.

The wild symbol is represented by the Geisha, the one that can also give away the slot’s biggest prizes. It will reward you with up to 9,000x the line bet when you get up to five of them on the same payline, in which case they will form their own combo. However, they can also be used as substitutes, as symbols which will take the place of others when they appear in the right spot. You will be able to form combinations using a mix of regular matching symbols and wilds, plus the wilds will apply 2x multipliers to the wins when they contribute to them.

The scatter symbol is another important part of the game, offering very good payouts also, of up to 400x the triggering bet. You need up to five Arch symbols in order to get that kind of payout, but at least it doesn’t matter where the symbols appear, since they are scatters.

Free Games Feature

The slot’s free spins will be awarded when you have between three and five Arch symbols scattered around, it doesn’t matter exactly where. 15 spins are offered for free and they all have wins which are worth three times more than in the base game. Retriggering this feature is possible, with the same requirement in place, of 3+ scatters.


Betting options and jackpots

The game’s 25 lines will only need one coin each to become active, and you get the option to reduce the number of paylines if your budget is limited. Each line gets anywhere between $0.01 and $100 as its bet, so in theory you could go as high as $2,500 for a single spin, making this a decent option for high rollers as well.

The rewards are quite good, offering 9,000 times the line bet as the top prize, which in the case of the maximum wager would mean up to $900,000.

Design and symbols

The Japanese part of the design was excellently handled, and I think you will agree with me. The symbols which have this legacy are delicate, well designed, and they show appropriate images from the Japanese culture. A Japanese village with a couple of buildings and with mountains in the distance is shown behind the game area. On the reels, the symbols are either themed or they are playing cards.


Symbols: Geisha (9,000x, wild), Arch (scatter, 400x the triggering bet), Dragon (750x), Flower (750x), Hand fan (400x), Mountains (250x), Ace (125x), King (100x), Queen (100x), Jack (100x), Ten (100x) and Nine (100x).

Is It Worth Playing?

There is nothing original about the theme, but it’s a game which high rollers will be able to take advantage of, plus it has some decent features included inside.

The Geisha slot machine is offered through the Aristocrat platform, so if you want to play it for real or just to practice, look out for casinos that use it.
