Wonder Rose is a pokie with a colourful and cheery nature. The central character of the game is Rose herself, who wears a crown of red roses in her long blonde hair. She has a big beaming smile and looks to be full of the joys of summer. Joining Rose on the slot reels is a golden statue, a jewel-studded ladybird, a gold decked cat and a green bird, all adding to the seasonal feel of the game.
This Konami designed pokie gives you a choice of how to play the main bonus feature. There are the usual action stacked symbols, plus the chance of hitting a huge scatter win. Here are the highlights that make this medium variance pokie wonderful:
The scatter symbol shows a diamond in a gold casing and appears on all five reels. Land 3 or 4 scatter symbols and you’ll win 2x or 5x your total stake respectively. Land the maximum 5 scatters and you’ll win an incredible 750x your total stake – easily the largest pay out in the game as it equates to 33,750-coin win!
As well as those immediate pays, you’ll also be immediately entered into the free spins bonus round. You’ll now have to choose from the following three options:
This makes for a very interesting choice. If you’re an all or nothing type player, the 5 free games might be the best choice for you. While you might not win with just 5 spins, any win you do hit could be huge. The 20 free spins are the safest option, where you’ll usually enjoy a series of smaller wins. The 10 free games could be the perfect middle ground, which will be the option of choice for many.
Wonder Rose is a five-reel pokie featuring a total of 30 win-lines, while the cost of each spin is 45 credits (15 credits are added for the features).
The standard Action Stacked Symbols system found on almost all Konami slots is used for Wonder Rose. This makes one symbol (chosen at random) dominate the reels on every spin. It works by having long strips of blanks on the reels, which are filled by that random symbol. This means your biggest wins will come those times you cover all or most of the reels with the same symbol.
Rose herself is the highest paying symbol, worth 500 coins for landing the maximum five in a row. The golden statue pays 150 coins, while the ladybird, the cat and the bird pay 150, 100 and 100 coins respectively. At the bottom end of the pay table you’ll find the playing cards 9, 10, J, Q, K and A.
Wonder Rose plays against the backdrop of a dense rose bush, with the colourful red flowers taking centre stage. The reels are housed within an ornate golden frame, given the overall pokie a theme of both summer and gems/jewellery.
The diamond stands out as the scatter symbol, as does the rose as the wild, but it’s Rose herself who really lights up the reels. Her beauty and her smile adding a friendly atmosphere to the summertime theme. The overall atmosphere of the game could be described as tranquil.
Konami has designed an enjoyable and amiable pokie in Wonder Rose. While the design has a relaxing feel, the game play is all action. The Action Stacked Symbols can give any spin a boost, while the stacked wild roses on reel 3 only boost things further. It’s the free spins feature where the game excels. The three choices make for three very different features – the short, sharp big wins offered with 5 spins, the long feature with smaller wins when you take 20 spins, or the middle ground.
