Samurai Ken Mobile Slot Review

You know, our history of Japan and the samurai isn’t quite as brushed up as we’d like it to be, but we’re relatively certain the samurai weren’t humanoid animals and we’re far more certain there were no dragons roaming the countryside that needed slaying. Still, we suppose we can look the other way as far as artistic freedom is concerned, mostly because this is one really gorgeous slot. It reminds us a bit of comic books, with the drawn artstyle, the animations and the screen transitions. It all comes together to make an awesome looking game that feels awesome to play. Hot off the presses from Fantasma Games and Microgaming comes Samurai Ken!

The slot offers gamblers a 5×3 playing field with 20 fixed paylines. It offers medium to high volatility, with several bonuses to help spice up the gameplay. All wins trigger sticky re-spins, in which the winning combination is held on the reels while the rest spin again. This repeats until no additional winning positions are obtained and, as you can imagine, boosts the prizes you can win by a great deal. Alongside this, there is a free spins bonus that is activated by Scatters. Scatters appear on the first, third and fifth reel, and trigger a free spin battle in which the Samurai and Dragon fight each other back and forth. The amount of extra turns you get is, therefore, entirely random, as well as the amount of money you might win as a result, and represents the biggest factor that impacts the slot’s volatility. On top of the free spins being as they are, Wilds also appear while the special feature is active, and getting two Wilds will also activate a re-spin bonus which will keep going until no new Wilds appear, giving you an increased chance of potentially scoring a big win with lots of Wilds.

How to Play Samurai Ken

We already mentioned the title is gorgeous, and we do honestly mean it. The entire theme is the Samurai fighting the Dragon and the slot takes a comic book approach to the visuals. The symbols are large and show off the action moments before the confrontation. The way the dragon looks at the samurai as he approaches, the way the samurai draws his sword, the gold he will reclaim from the beast. And as if the visuals weren’t done well enough, the screen transition is also great. One minor nitpick is that you see the samurai on the right and then the dragon to the left, but their positions are reversed once they start fighting on the reels. It’s not a big deal, but it bothers us just a little bit, and it’s a relatively simple fix – just flip the position.

As for gameplay, it shouldn’t surprise you that with unlimited free spins and Wilds only being available while the bonus is active that most of the juicy wins will appear while the special feature is active. This isn’t always the case, thanks to the re-spins that happen on all winning combinations, but by far and large, if you’re looking to turn a profit, you will want to try and hit those free spins as soon as possible, but given that they’re a bit difficult to activate, it can take a while.

Jackpots & Progressives

There’s no progressive jackpot and given the medium volatility, we’re not surprised that the top jackpot stands at 750 coins. You could theoretically go even higher with some insane luck with the re-spins and free spins, but we’re not sure if we even dare dreaming of wins that big. We had our fun playing it, we got some great wins and we walked away happy.

Bonus Games & Sign-ups

Apart from the already mentioned bonuses, there are no other features available in Samurai Ken.
