The noun “origami” (originally “orikami”) literally means “folding [a] paper” in Japanese. Seven symbols (paper flower, paper dog, paper cat, paper bird, paper fish, paper ladybug, and paper frog) require three, four, or five winning combinations.
Origami Game Characteristics
Origami has a red-framed cream 5X3 grid, with cyan margins and whose partitions consist of Origami mountain folds; there are eight symbols, ten adjustable paylines, seven denominations, six optional coins per line, 420 total bets, win multipliers, a side game, and the payouts range from $0.05 to $5000.00.
Origami’s only special symbol is a multiplier-offering orange-and-white paper cat loaf. The seven ordinary symbols: a red, blue, yellow, and lime paper flower; a cyan paper dog called Big Lord; a sitting pink paper cat called Kitty; a flying purple-and-white paper bird; a paper goldfish; a flying red-and-gray paper ladybug; and a white-legged green paper magic frog.
The Origami coin values: $0.01, $0.02, $0.05, $0.1, $0.2, $0.5, and $1. The Origami coins per line options: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 10. The minimum bet is $0.01. The maximum bet is $100.00.
For instance, staking the $100.00 maximum bet offers these Origami payouts for three, four, and five winning combinations: paper flowers pay $200.00, $1000.00, and $5000.00; paper dogs, or pink paper cats pay $100.00, $600.00, and $3000.00; paper birds, or paper goldfish pay $50.00, $400.00, and $2000.00; paper ladybugs, or paper magic frogs pay $50.00, $200.00, and $1000.00.
The orange-and-white paper cat shows up at random below reel two and reel three, wherein it is accompanied by win multipliers; these win multipliers, capped at X50, are displayed on its cream belly. The players are prompted to: one, instantly claim Origami’s regular wins by clicking “TAKE WIN”; or, two, click “TAKE RISK” to continue to the payout-doubling or payout-nullifying side game that is capped at X10.
The side game is a payout-nullifying gamble if the player has chosen a face down playing card, from a choice of four face down white-and-purple cards, that is inferior to the already face up card. Alternatively, it can be a payout-doubling gamble if the player’s guessed choice is superior to the already face up card. Origami’s non-progressive jackpot is 50X the $5000.00 regular payout, which (50X5000) is $25000.00.
Although it lacks free games, the notable features of the good Origami software include: a dynamic paytable; statistics; off/on left-hand mode; 10-1000 automated spins that can be set to stop after an up to 60-minute playtime, after the win exceeds between 5 bets and 1000 bets, after the balance decreases by between 10% and 90%, and/or after the balance increases by between X1.5 and X10.
The ambient background has acoustic instrumentals. Sound effects: ringing bell, “woof!” of a paper dog, croaking frog, tweeting paper bird, meowling paper cat, bubbly water, and chirping ladybug.
The animated 2D graphics include: gushing coins, gliding paper goldfish, fluttering paper ladybug, fluttering paper bird in front of the sun, a blinking cat playing with the yarn, hopping paper frog; and speech bubbles such as “bow-wow!”, “meow”, “bzzzzz”, “croak”, and “tweet!”
