Rising Sun – 5 Reels Slots

Rising-Sun-5-ReelsRising Sun is a Japanese themed game from Saucify, with the 5 reels version being the one we review here. A 3 reel slot is also offered by the same developer, and if that’s the kind of game you like it will be a good choice. For fans of the modern genre, with 5 reels and more features, this is the slot to go with though. You’re going to get from it the same gorgeous design that looks like it’s been taken directly from Japan, plus you have more features to take advantage of.

While playing the modern version of Rising Sun, you are going to discover on its 5 reels and 20 lines a list of features which is not very long, but which still manages to give you scatter symbols, wilds and free spins. The best payout advertised is at $7,500.

Features of Rising Sun – 5 Reels

Two different scatters, a wild symbol, free spins and 3x multipliers make up the entire list of features offered in this case.

If you look at the symbol with the Japanese Girl, you will notice that on the paytable it is mentioned with the role of the wild. As the wild, this symbol may not be allowed in this game to offer its own prizes, but you will find that it is often used as a substitute, being the only symbol which can be part of any regular combo. It can take the role of those regular symbols that are on the same line, helping them form the combo.

The Fish scatter is the only one of its kind to give you prizes, but they’re not the type which multiply the line bet. Since scatter symbols don’t have to form regular combinations, being enough to have two or more such symbols somewhere on the reels, you will get paid in multiples of the total bet instead. The highest payout is at 100 times the bet.

Free Games Feature

The White Cat symbol is another scatter, but one whose role is to get you into the free spins mode. Have enough of these scatters present at the same time, meaning 3 or more of them, and you will win free spins with tripled prizes. 10, 15 or 20 spins are offered for 3, 4 or 5 Cats, respectively.

Betting options and jackpots

You can use 1 to 100 coins to place a bet in this game. The coins are distributed among the 20 lines of the slot, with up to 5 coins for each one. There is also the coin denomination to work with. You can set it to a value between $0.01 and $0.25. With 5 coins per line, you can wager up to $1.25, or up to $25 total for all of them.

The best reward that the game can offer is going to give you 6,000x the line wager, which in this case would mean 30,000 coins or up to $7,500.

Design and symbols

The Rising Sun games take their theme seriously, and will not make any compromises, and that’s a thing that I appreciate about them. Besides being a gorgeous looking game, you’re going to find only Japanese themed symbols on its reels, no poker cards to fill up the quota of symbols. Each symbol looks like it was painted by hand in an exquisite amount of detail, while the background image is just as good.


Symbols: Japanese Girl (wild), White Cat (scatter), Fish (100x the bet, scatter), Ocean Waves (6,000x), Dragon (1,200x), Writing Tools (800x), Japanese Temple (500x), Sushi (400x), Cherry Blossoms (300x), Bonsai Tree (100x), Dragon Drawing (75x), Japanese Writing (50x) and Japanese Writing 2 (30x).

Is It Worth Playing?

The main reason to play this game would be the theme and the way it was implemented. The features are good also, but they’re available in many other slots. The prizes are average at best. All things considered, I will still recommend it, and it’s because of the gorgeous graphics.

You will find Rising Sun – 5 Reels at any online casino which chooses to use software from Saucify/BetOnSoft , playable either for free or for real money.
