This is an excellent Asian-themed 15-payline game based on the cute Japanese Kokeshi, traditional hand-carved wooden dolls that are thought to bring luck. Whilst this game lacks a free spins round, it more than makes up for that with its bonus climbs, a feature akin to a respins bonus, as well as a scatter multiplier and tall (expanding) wilds. It has an RTP of 96.53%, but no published volatility.
Theme & Story
Visually, this game is an absolute treat. After each spin, the reels are placed behind a screen and a new set appears. The white and brown background smacks of beautiful Japanese minimalism, whilst the symbols are made up of doll figures in traditional Japanese clothes, known as Kokeshi dolls. Kokeshi dolls have been handcrafted in Japan for over 150 years. They are turned into a simple rounded shape with no arms or legs and then painted brightly to create a range of characters. Designs often feature floral patterns and rings. This slot isn’t the first game to feature Kokeshi, and they are also used in Nintendo’s digital avatars.
RTP and Volatility
This game has an RTP of 96.53%. This means that over time, the slot pays out 96.53% of all the money that goes into it. Slightly above average, it’s a good RTP, but it’s always worth remembering that the RTP is no guarantee of winnings. The developer has not published any information on the game’s volatility.

Kokeshi Bonus Features
Mini Scatter Collection Tower
Every time one or more cute scatter symbols appear (a Kokeshi wearing a traditional hat), they collect up on the Scatter Collection Tower, which can be seen to the left side of the reels. They reach multipliers of x2 (two scatters), x3 (four scatters), x4 (six scatters) or x5 (eight scatters), which will apply to any win from that spin.
Kokeshi Climbs Feature
This is effectively a respin feature which is awarded when tall symbols or tall wilds land partially above the reels. It creates a new row where additional symbols are dropped. The feature will continue until no new tall symbols land in the top row.
Free Climbs Bonus Feature
This is triggered when five scatters appear on the slots. The upper barrier is removed and dolls continue to climb until all ten scatters appear, thereby multiplying any win x5.
The Kokeshi wild, a wooden doll figure, substitutes for all symbols apart from the scatter. The wild is always at least 2 symbols high.
Expanding Symbols and Wilds
Known in this game as ‘Tall Symbols’, standard expanding symbols can appear up to x2 the normal size, whilst the ‘Tall Wilds’ can be up to x5 the normal size.
Kokeshi is a stylish slot game with its beautiful Kokeshi dolls and captivating narrative. The game is bursting with bonus features from the Tall Wilds, Free Climbs Bonus Feature, Kokeshi Climbs Feature, and the Mini Scatter Collection Tower.
