The slot is designed to keep Japan in the background, featuring traditional Japanese symbols in monochrome and orange. With a nostalgic video game theme, the slot presents the classic Daruma as a special symbol, accompanied by a wooden mochi mallet, and ramen bowls, with small logos of a running bear, a smiling cat, and a little girl as payout symbols. Players can have a relaxing game with regular multipliers of 3x, 5x, 10x, 15x, 20x, and 40x and bonuses of 20x, 25x, 50x, and 100x. Added to bonuses, the game has a grand top win of 10,000x. While the max win and the special bonus payouts are thrilling, the regular multipliers could have been better. Especially since high-volatility games such as these offer infrequent max wins. Therefore, regular multipliers are even more important to gather a decent win. So we would suggest players try out the Toshi Video Club demo game, before opting for the real money variant. Slots from the same provider with a similar video style can be tried, like Vending Machine with a grand top win of 5,000x, or the Book of Time with a 10,000x top win and 30 free spins.
The slot has the Daruma bonuses whose sizes increase with the increase in the bonus multipliers along with free spins.
The Daruma randomly appears on a pay line and lands multiplier values that are added or multiplied to the wins. They are of different types:
Small Daruma - Has added multipliers of 1x, 2x, or 5x.
Medium Daruma - Has added multipliers of 10x, 15x, or 20x.
Big Daruma - Has added multipliers of 25x, 50x, or 100x.
Green Daruma - Has multipliers of values x2, x3, x4, and x5.
3+ appearances of the Scatter Free Spin symbols trigger 10 free spins. A multiplier value also randomly appears in the round which gets multiplied to the wins.
The Darumas can operate for real money in the Toshi Video Club real money game with free spins. Players can choose to buy bonuses with the Buy Bonus option.
