White Orchid from IGT: Slot Review - a peaceful and rewarding experience!
This latest release from top software studio IGT is a revamped version of the same classic online slot that was released a few years ago. White Orchid was extremely popular in land-based casinos so it was no surprise when IGT decided to release a digital version of this nature-based game. This time around, the game has been given a fresh lick of paint to make it more modern looking and attractive to play. White Orchid is of course based on the beautiful White Orchid flower which is said to represent innocence, beauty, and elegance. Join us as we become one with nature in this game to see how rewarding it can really be?
White Orchid is a 5 reel slot with up to 1,024 ways to win that includes Free Spins and Wild Symbols.
The first feature to highlight is that this game features 40 paylines and you can increase the number of ways you can win by taking advantage of IGT’s MultiWay game engine. When you place bets of 80 coins or more then the MulitWay game engine will activate and you will get to play with an incredible 1,024 ways to win to really boost your winning chances by some margin.
The Wild symbol is illustrated by an image of the game logo and like most Wild symbols, it substitutes for all other symbols apart from the Scatter to help create winning combinations. This symbol only appears in columns 2, 3, 4, and 5 in the main game.
A beautiful White Orchid flower represents the Scatter symbol and this symbol only appears in column 3 in the base game. Land 2 or more of these symbols on the centre column and you will activate the White Falls Free Spins Bonus Game. Naturally, the more Scatters you land then the more Free Spins you will be awarded. 2 gives 10 Free Spins, 3 awards 15, and if you manage to land 4 Scatters then you will receive a nice set of 20 Free Spins. New animal symbols that offer even bigger payouts will now also appear on the reels to make things even more interesting. You can retrigger this feature by getting 2 or more Scatters while in Free Spins and it is actually possible to get up to a staggering 130 Free Spins altogether!
Theme, Graphics and Sound
The graphics are bright and colourful as the game takes place inside a garden that’s full to the brim of a variety of beautiful looking orchid flowers. If you are a fan of orchids then no doubt you will really enjoy this slot! Symbols consist of a Man, a Woman, a Cheetah, a Butterfly, a Hawk, a Fish, as well as the standard A – J icons. The animations are decent as symbols speed up and down the reels and blink and flash when part of a winning payline.
There is no real music to speak of apart from some generic sound effects when you spin the reels. It would have been a good idea to put in a relaxing soundtrack to complement the gameplay here.

Our Verdict on White Orchid
IGT created this slot and it’s easy to see why it still remains a classic today thanks to its simple gameplay and unique nature theme. This revamped version looks entirely different graphics-wise than the original which I suppose is a good thing as the original is looking rather a bit dated now. When it comes to bonus features, there is the Free Spins bonus game which can take a few spins to trigger but is worth the wait since more rewarding new symbols appear on the reels and you can retrigger it to get even more Free Spins. In terms of variance, I found this slot to be Medium. Just a word of warning from us that if you enable the MultiWays 1,024 ways to win feature, it can eat into your bankroll pretty quickly! For slots with a similar nature theme, check out Flowers and Butterly Staxx.
