Live 5’s latest slot promises an easy play experience but with the chance to discover ancient treasures and big wins via its innovative InstaPots™ feature

Live 5 is taking players on a serene adventure inspired by a Japanese folktale in its latest slot release. Taro’s Tale InstPots™ captures the ancient beauty of the land of the rising sun and combines it with bonus features such as Free Spins and its own InstaPots™.

Taro’s Tale is a 5×3 reel, 10 payline game that sits at the medium end of the volatility scale. But don’t let the easy-play nature of the game fool you – there is plenty of action to be found in the base game and through the two bonus features.

Live 5’s InstaPots™ feature offers players the chance to trigger one of five Multiplier jackpots – Mini, Minor, Major, Mega and Ultra – on every spin. They are unlocked when between three and five InstaPot symbols land to award stake Multipliers of x5, x25, x50, x250 and x2,500 respectively.

InstaPots™ are not progressive so do not require a stake contribution to increment nor do they require a re-seed value once triggered. Instead, they simply pay a fixed amount each time they trigger a pot.

As players become more engrossed in the tale of Taro, they will want to seek out the elusive Free Spins that form part of the legendary story. This happens when three Scatter symbols land anywhere on the reels, awarding 10 Free Games. In addition, where the Free Spins symbol acts as a Wild, getting three will also retrigger 10 additional Free Games.

Taro’s Tale gets really interesting with the arrival of Wild symbols, which can land on the reels at any time during the base game and substitute for all other symbols except InstaPots™ and Scatters.

As with all Live 5 slots, the game is available in 30+ languages and has been certified for launch in key markets including the UK, Spain, Sweden, Italy, Denmark and all Malta Jurisdictions.

Mathew Parker, CPO at Live 5, said: “Taro’s Tale InstaPots™ has been designed to engage those that enjoy Asian-themed slots, but thanks to our InstaPots™ feature and the Free Spins bonus we believe its appeal will go way beyond that player set.

“The gameplay is smooth and serene, which combined with the stunning graphics and animation and authentic sound will put players at the heart of Taro’s incredible tale.

“This is a very strong addition to our growing portfolio of slots that cover a wide range of themes, and we look forward to seeing it land in operator game lobbies.”
