It has 6 reels and 7 rows but the configuration can change during the game. It has 117,649 win ways and it has an unrecorded RTP and variance. It is set in one of the famous floating markets common in the Far East. The game has free spins, scatters and wilds.

Introduction

It makes a change to see an East Asian theme executed by a Chinese game developer and as with other CQ9 free slot demos there is a sense of authenticity which can sometimes be missing in the average Asian inspired slot. It is firmly rooted in the real world, unlike games such as Betixon’s Aladdin-themed Market Wonders slot.

Floating Market uses a 6-reel grid with 7 rows but this can change during play. The minimum bet size is 0.80 and the maximum is 200. There are 10 regular symbols: Prawns, Pineapple Dessert, Lime Dessert, Watermelon Dessert, Orange, Plum and the four highest playing cards. The wild is a huge pile of fruits and the scatter is the boat woman.

Theme, graphics and soundtrack

There is a very simple but attractive backdrop to this game - pale blue water with streaks of light shining on it. The symbols are necessarily small on such a large grid, but they have a certain charm and they sit on a grid that sits in the river just below the steps. The animation is low-key until you hit a win at which point the coins cascade freely. When you win free spins the screen is filled with the boat woman congratulating you. The music is slight and mainly percussive, somewhat overwhelmed by the sound effects, but the overall effect is very pleasing.

  8. Each spin can trigger the maximum reel feature at random. The height of reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 are fixed at 7.
  9. The wild substitutes for all symbols except the scatter. The wild appears on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5.
  10. Any 3, 4, 5 or 6 scatters that land on the reels will win 10, 15, 20 or 25 free spins respectively.

Floating Market bonus features

Free Game Feature

The bonus multiplier starts at 1 and will increase by 1 each time a group of winning combinations land until the conclusion of the free game. Free spins cannot be retriggered. The free game is played at the same bet level as the game which triggered it.

Any 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 or more scatters landing on the reels will win an extra random bonus multiplier. 2 will give 2x-4x, 6 or more will give 10x-15x and the values increase to a maximum multiplier of 100.

Buy Feature

If you prefer not to wait for wins to trigger the bonus feature you can buy free spins in the base game. This feature is charged at an additional cost related to the total bet and the figure will be shown in the purchase window. In the buy feature the bet will be the same as the game which triggered the bonus.

Floating Market review: our verdict

The extra features are fairly limited and really only amount to free spins and multipliers, while the changing reel configuration is no more than a novelty. The game play is generally a little disappointing, which is a shame because on paper it seems to promise a good experience. It looks original and has clearly been thoughtfully designed but it probably isn’t a game to spend a huge amount of time on.

FAQs

What is the RTP and variance?

Unfortunately for this game the RTP and variance are not recorded.

What does RTP actually mean?

RTP stands for Return to Player. What this tells you is how much a player might win on average. However, as this average is calculated on the basis of all win levels. It means the level of player losses in most instances will exceed the wins.

Are the spin results genuinely random?

Yes. All spins are activated by random number generation algorithms which means there is no human influence over the results. Neither is there any connection between one spin and the next, or any change in the chance of any particular combination occurring. The spins are entirely random and there is no way a player can influence the game.
