Easy to Understand (10)
The pay table is self-explanatory. Rules for both the bonus games are clearly explained. Therefore the Golden Lotus slot game is easy to understand.
Graphics & Sounds (8)
The graphics and sound are adequate without rising above the usual. There is animation only in two symbols and the animation is identical. This is somewhat of a let down.
Theme and Concept (9)
The Oriental ambience has been effectively created through use of appropriate symbols, background graphics and styling. The Chinese Garden feature ties in with the theme because players have to pick from golden lotuses. The slot game uses high value card symbols which have no thematic value. This is one drawback as far as the theme is concerned.
Game Features (10)
Golden Lotus has two interesting bonus features. One of them provides only free spins and the other provides bonus credits along with free spins. Because the White Lotus symbol can convert to the wild Golden Lotus symbol the payout opportunities are increased. In one bonus feature the number of free spins is randomly determined whereas in the other feature the multiplier is randomly determined. All these twists add interest to the bonus features.
Betting Options (9)
Players can manipulate only two of the betting options, which are the number of paylines and the coin size. The number of coins wagered per payline is fixed at one by the game. Despite this Golden Lotus offers a reasonably large betting range that would satisfy both low rollers and high rollers.
Golden Lotus offers a jackpot bonanza for its players. There are two randomly triggered progressive jackpots. In spite of that the highest two fixed jackpots payout 8888 coins. The highest scatter payout is 500 coins.
