Powered by Endorphina, Origami has five reels and ten paylines based around the ancient Japanese art of paper folding.
Taking inspiration from Japanese culture and the tricky ancient art it is named after; Origami is a video slot game that will appeal visually, as the colours carry plenty of impact due to the animation design.
To begin with, Origami keeps it tight with tradition when looking at the buttons and symbols and gameplay animation.
There is no denying that Origami contains fantastic visuals, but no player should be fooled by the engaging animations. Origami carries a serious high variance edge that can certainly cut a players winnings if they aren’t careful.
Thus, the art of Origami can be reasonably unforgiving at times. If a player likes to feel catered for, then they must be aware that Orgimai doesn’t care for anyone’s success. It is all about the big wins in this game.
Considering the paper folding design of this video slot, the key theme of the reels is paper-crafted animals - birds, cats, fish, dogs, frogs and ladybirds are all on display; however, it is the paper windmill that all punters should be looking out for, being the highest paying symbol within the game.
Sadly, while Origami certainly has high paying wins, it falls short when it comes to gameplay extras. There are no scatter symbols or wilds or found within the game, although it does have a Cat Multiplier round that will be of interest.
When the origami cat lands, players can get their hands on either an x50, x15, or x5 multiplier. Whilst it undoubtedly is not a brilliant extra, it does add dimension to the gameplay.
There is a Gamble feature where players can double their winnings after each win payout. Players need to locate the mystery card and hope that it is higher than the dealers. If it is, your money is double, and if it is the wrong card, you will forfeit all your winnings.
Origami is the latest in a bunch of video slot games that have brought significant cash prizes for hardcore gamers, especially with its high volatility. Sadly lacking bonus features and wilds, it doesn’t offer anything new in the gameplay stakes making Origami ideal for those searching for big wins rather than entertainment.
