Based on a popular brick and mortar casino video slot, White Orchid is a 5 reel, 4 row, nature-themed game from US developer IGT. You can play with a standard 40 paylines or increase your stakes and bring the 1,024 ways to win machine into play too There’s also a bonus round where you can win up to 130 free spins. Play on all devices from between 40p and £1,600 per spin.
The design in White Orchid is a little cheesy. The reels are draped in pink and white flowers. There you’ll see lower value royal values alongside frogs, butterflies and leopards and male and female characters who could come straight from a Mills and Boon novel. Land 5 of the woman on the same payline and you’ll pocket a 5,000 times bet reward.
The White Orchid logo is the wild – it replaces everything apart from the scatter when it hits on reels, 2, 3, 4 or 5. The standard game engine offers 40 paylines. If you pay an extra 40 coins per spin, you can bring the MultiWay engine into play which offer 1,024 ways to win.
The main feature offering is the White Falls Free Spins Bonus feature – it’s triggered in a slightly unusual manner. Instead of the scatter (the white orchid symbol) hitting on different reels, it appears in stacks on the middle reel only. If you land 2, 3 or 4 of them in a stack, you’ll trigger the bonus round and with it 10, 15 or 20 free spins.
The free spins take place on a new set of better paying reels. You can trigger more free spins here too, up to a maximum of 130. Again, these are triggered by landing stacks of white orchid scatters on the centre reel.
As far as volatility goes, White Orchid sits in the medium range to offer a balance of payouts. This incarnation of White Orchid is an updated version of an old game. The design still looks a little tired but the MultiWay game engine delivers plenty of action. The main feature offers some decent potential too.
It’s not something we’ll be rushing back to play regularly but if you fancy playing a video slot that will get you back to nature then White Orchid offers just that. I would rather play other IGT offerings like Keystone Kops or Elephant King.
