Special Features

Wild Symbols

Either Samurai fighter, the traditional one or the futuristic cyber punk one, functions as the Wild symbol. Not only does this symbol fulfil symbol substituting functions, it also is the highest paying symbol that can trigger the Reel Split Re-spin feature. The Wild symbols becomes Stacked and Sticky in free spins mode.

Reel Split Respins

This feature can be triggered when you play four-of-a-kind of any standard symbol on the reels in one round. At the start of this feature the time-travel portal is opened, which splits the reels in the middle to insert a 5th reel. This 5th reel re-spins while the other reels remain locked for another win chance.

Free Spins

Free spins mode is triggered if you play at least 3 Scatter symbols in one round. Three Scatter symbols awards you 8 free spins while playing 4 Scatter symbols in the triggering round gives you 12 free spins. In Free spins mode the reels expand to a 5×3 grid structure and you have 243 Ways to Win rather than 81 win ways in the base game and wins in this mode pay both ways with exception of 5-of-a-kind. The entire 3rd reel functions as a Sticky Expanded Wild during Free Spins and you can make wins of an impressive 2,717 times your stake.

Verdict

Shogun of Time slot game has an original theme and in terms of graphics is a joy to experience. Most of the excitement on this game lies in Free Spins mode. Not only is it quite challenge to trigger this mode, there is not that much action to be had in the base game that has only 4 reels, which can make for less exciting times until Free Spins is triggered.
