Myriad of Winning Options in White Orchid Slot
Software developer IGT has created a beautiful colour palette for their five-reel slot title White Orchid, the pastel pinks, greens and yellows of the idyllic jungle backdrop echoed in deeper jewel hues on the symbols displayed in four windows per reel. The jungle theme has no storyline per se, apart from the player’s quest for the bonus-yielding White Orchid.
The game’s biggest attraction, however, is IGT’s determination to cram as many ways to win into it as possible. White Orchid has 40 pay lines, and players can bet from 1 to 20 coins on each. However, the game also features IGT’s Multiway system, which players engage by doubling the bet per spin. Matching icons then score prizes as long as they continue across adjacent reels, giving 1024 ways to win, while wins on the pay lines still count.
Symbols Win According to Two Pay Tables
White Orchid uses 10 ordinary symbols in total; four poker symbols, five theme-related icons and the White Orchid logo, which serves as the Wild. Matching symbols win different prizes, depending on whether the matches occur on a pay line or according to the Multiway feature. So there are two pay tables outlining the two sets of prizes, and players win the combined prizes for all pay line and Multiway prizes after each spin.
The poker symbols J, Q, K and A are rendered in plain fonts in a variety of colours, decorated with a few green leaves. For Multiway wins, all of these symbols win 10 coins for four matches and 40 coins for five. On the pay lines, players can win up to 300 coins for five Ks or As.
Five Rain Forest Icons
A tree frog and a butterfly win identical pay line prizes: 50, 100 or 500 coins for three, four or five matches. Their Multiway prizes are 40 or 100 coins, for four or five matches. There are three high-value icons: a jaguar, a man and a woman, both in rain forest attire. For three pay line matches these icons win 75, 100 or 125 coins, respectively; for four of a kind they win 400, 500 or 800 coins, and four five matches their prizes are 1,000, 2,000 or 5,000 coins.
For Multiway prizes, the jaguar and man each win 75 coins for four matches, while the woman wins 100. For five Multiway matches, their prizes are 250, 350 or 500 coins, respectively. The Wild only appears in Reels 2, 3, 4 and 5, and can substitute for any other ordinary icon.
White Orchid Scatter a Rare Find
A delicately illustrated White Orchid on a pink background is the White Orchid Scatter, and it doesn’t come up often, compared to many other slots; in fact, it only appears on Reel 3. However, players only need it to come up on two of the four windows to trigger a free spins bonus.
For two, three or four Scatters, the player gets 10, 15 or 20 free spins, and can be re-triggered in the same numbers if the Scatters come up again in combos of two or more during the bonus round.
