Welcome to the world of magical manga, where the girls are beautiful and the men look like boys in this Spirits of Zen slot machine.
We love Oriental games, especially those with imaginative graphics inspired by the mangas of our childhood. From the Super Graphics Lucky Cats slot to the Big Bot Crew from Quickspin, if you make gorgeous Japanese games, we will probably add a star to the review.
The Spirits of Zen slot game fits that category beautifully. With those soft tones, beautiful music and handsome faces, you know exactly the style they are going with, and we loved it.
Then we started to play slots.
So what’s supposed to keep you going as you play is that at any point one of three mechanical creatures may jump onto the screen and change things up.
The frog jumps around and gives you extra wilds, the spider spins random reels, and the little bug will swap symbols around to give you a win.
Isn’t that amazing? Sure. If they show up. The frog shows up enough time that you notice, but not quite enough to give you wilds that pay well.
Do you know how? Every consecutive win will increase the multiplier. On a loss, it resets to 1x.
So sure, you do get a 5x multiplier during the 10 free spins you trigger with 3 scatter symbols. Sure. If you get 5 consecutive wins in a row in this Spirits of Zen video slot.
Which doesn’t happen often, but they put a free re-spin in there that helps make it feel like you might. But when you walk away with 10x your bet for the 5th time in a row, you start thinking that maybe some other games with multipliers may be worth checking out.
The Final Countdown slot for example?

Wild: The Wilds substitute for all other symbols in order to create a win. She's blonde and pretty.
Scatters and Free Spins: 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols will trigger 10, 15 or 30 free bonus spins. During the free spins, you get cascading wins which increase the multiplier with each win increasing by 1x up to x5.
Random Bonus: At any point, you can get one of three random features:
These can occur at any point, including during the bonus games.
There's something beautiful about this Japanese inspired slot game, full of dramatic characters and soft colour palettes.
The problem is the features. Technically you get three random bonuses in the base game, but you rarely see more than one.
And while the free spins bonuses have something a little fun about them, with that increasing multiplier, you can't help but wonder why you can't just play on Gonzo's Quest slot and get multipliers during the base game.
After a while, the Spirits of Zen slot on mobile just loses a little steam and you'll be looking for something with a little more bite like you'll find in our Sakura Fortune slot review.
