Since there are extra rows on reels 2, 3, and 4, the grid itself is not the usual rectangle. It’s mounted on a mediaeval Japanese pagoda-like building surrounded by other traditional buildings and trees. The Spin, Autospin and Information buttons are placed on the right-hand side of the screen. Towering over the grid is the rather intense-looking face of a Samurai warrior. Once in a while, he steps out at random in front of the grid, triggering the Katana Modifier which rewards you a Free Spins round, a winning spin or a Hold and Win bonus round.
How to Play Rising Samurai
Before hitting the spin button, set your bet. The minimum is 0.20 and the max is 20.00 coins. The lower paying symbols are the 10, J, Q K and A, with the higher ones being 4 Samurai, with the Red Warrior being the most valuable, followed by the Purple, Blue and Green Warriors.
The Wild symbol is a Shuriken Ninja Star and it substitutes all symbols except the Free Spins (which are the Scatter symbols) and gold coins.
Rising Samurai Slots Bonus Round
By landing a minimum of 5 gold coins on the reels, you’ll activate the Hold and Win Free Spins mechanics, otherwise known as the Rising Samurai Respins feature. Starting with 3 respins, your goal is to fill the reels with as many coins as possible. At the end of the feature, it’s possible to land one of four jackpot multipliers, the Mini, Major, Maxi and Grand. These are worth 25x, 50x, 100x and 250x the stake, respectively.
A couple of these gold coins, namely one with a pink arrow and another with a blue X, are the Samurai Boosters. They are able to increase the number of jackpot multipliers.
