Grace of Ebisu Review
Pragmatic Play has been down the oriental slot route before—as has pretty much every slot producer on the planet! It is a popular theme and while the design won't usually stray too far from a standard format, it is the game's features that will help make it stand out from the crowd.
You can't ask for too much more than a little old Asian gentleman sitting cross-legged with his fishing rod in a tranquil pond, can you? The reels are set in a traditional wooden pagoda and the sound effects are calming and authentic at the same time. Mobile users can also access this slot through both Android and Apple devices.
This game could have felt a little mundane if it wasn't for the cascading reels that remove winning symbols and bring down new ones from above. The scatter pays system also removes fixed pay lines which means you can win anywhere on the board as long as 8 symbols are present—apart from scatter symbols. Hitting those bonus symbols takes you off to the free spins round where the multipliers keep getting bigger and better and this is where everybody will want to be eventually.
Grace of Ebisu comes with high volatility and a max payout of 5,000x which may or may not be enough to turn your head. The RTP is very reasonable at 96.5 0% and there is a large range of wagers available to help you keep within budget.
You need to love oriental-themed slots to even consider giving this game a go as you're going to spend a lot of time with stereotypical sounds and imagery. The addition of cascading reels and scatter pays does wonders for the overall gameplay and we loved that the multipliers had an extra boost of power during the free spins bonus. All in all, it's a more than adequate game that's capable of paying out big prizes.
