Lotus Heart is an atypical Chinese-themed video slot that features 5 reels, 3 rows and 243 ways to win.
As was the case with some of earlier Playtech’s releases, graphics, and overall design is at a pretty high level. Do not expect the classic visual setting you’ve seen in other Asian-themed slots, because…
…this one-armed bandit brings the refreshment!
Bets can go up to 500 coins here, and the list of features includes expanding wilds, scatters, re-spins and free spins followed by multipliers.
Sounds tempting? Well, we’ve just started!
Theme and Symbols
What kind of visual refreshment were we talking about?
When the average punter hears that slot is inspired by Asian culture he’ll imagine it as a flashy combination of gold and red with coins and ingots as main symbols.
In Lotus Heart, the things are a little bit different. Green and blue are dominant here and the whole set-up looks very elegant.
Symbols are mainly inspired by the Chinese zodiac, except for the low paying royals dressed in black and green.
The bigger payouts will come via pigs, roosters, dogs, rabbits, and rats, while the flower itself is the wild.
As we already mentioned, this uncommon release features a 5x3 grid with 243 active ways to win.
The wagers go between 0.10 and 500 coins per strike, which will allow both less skilled players and experienced high rollers to enjoy Lotus Heart.
Also, the payout potential is also good offering the maximum win of 4.734x bet. The theoretical return to player (RTP) is set at 96.27% which is slightly above the average.
There’s nothing bad about Lotus Heart so far. Let’s check the content!
The most important symbol in the game is the lotus flower. It will replace all of the regular symbols except for the scatter and…
…when it lands on reels 2, 3 and 4 it’ll expand and turn the reel wild allowing you to score even more wins.
By landing 3 scatters you’ll activate Free Spins feature and get 5 spins free of charge. During the free spins feature, 3 animated koi carps will spawn and swim around reels randomly throwing symbols on the grid.
Every symbol they land on will instantly turn into the wild. If the koi fish lands on a zodiac symbol, you’ll get one re-spin followed by x3 multiplier.
As you can see, Lotus Heart comes with some unique features that offer substantial payouts. The only drawback could be the fact that there’s no way to re-trigger the free spins feature.
There are many Chinese-themed video slots that we’ve tested and played, and each one has been interesting in its own way.
However, it would be fair to admit that Lotus Heart is at least one step ahead of all of them, thanks to its cosmetics, available features, payouts and…
…Playtech has once again demonstrated why it is one of the biggest names in the iGaming industry.
