Ninja vs Samurai is a five-reel slot game with three rows in each reel. Above the reels, you can see animations of samurais and ninjas fighting. There is also a scrolling bar that shows different game information and your winning combinations.
As mentioned above, the game has 20 fixed paylines. This provides a decent number of ways to win. The features you can change are the bet size and bet level. The bet size can be changed from 0.01 to 0.5, and the bet level from 1 to 10. The overall bet value is calculated by the bet size multiplied by the bet level and then multiplied by the paylines.
The controls of this game are easy to understand, and there is an in-depth explanation for the different features. For quicker play, there is a turbo spin feature and an autoplay feature. You can select between 10 to 100 spins for the autoplay feature.
Ninja vs Samurai has 11 symbols in total. This includes four basic symbols which are A, K, J, and Q which have the lowest payouts. Next, there are two weapon symbols – a flying star, and a samurai sword. They have higher payouts. Finally, the top two paying standard symbols are the ninja and samurai.
The maximum win from a single spin is €2,500 which is achieved from a bet size of 0.5 and a bet level of 10, for a winning combination of five wild symbols.
Aside from the basic symbols, there is also a dojo wild symbol. This substitutes for all other symbols except the Ninja and Samurai symbols. It also has its own payout multipliers of 500x, 100x, and 20x, for five, four, or three symbols.
This game also features two scatter symbols – a Ninja and a Samurai. These scatter symbols appear on reels two, three, and four only. The scatter symbols do not have their own payouts but instead trigger free spins.
Finally, this game has two interesting random features – the Ninja Feature and Samurai Feature. The Ninja Feature can be randomly triggered on any spin and results in a reel multiplier of 2x, 3x, or 5x. Alternatively, the Samurai Feature can also be triggered on any main reel spin. This results in reels one to five reels randomly being filled with wild symbols. Both of these fun features improve your chances of winning and can result in some decent jackpots.
The Ninja vs Samurai bonus round is triggered by the Ninja and Samurai scatter symbols. Free spins are triggered by getting three or more Ninja scatter or Samurai scatter symbols that appear on reels two, three, and four only.
This triggers a minimum of nine Ninja vs Samura free spins. Before the free spins start, each Ninja or Samurai symbol is converted into three free spins. The bonus round then commences. If you win Ninja scatter free spins, all reel wins are multiplied by either 2x, 3x, or 5x. Alternatively, if you win Samurai scatter free spins, wild symbols are chosen randomly to fill reels one to five.
You can also trigger additional free spins during your bonus game spins if you get any more scatter symbols. Otherwise, the basic paytable and bet values are used during the free spins.
The Ninja vs Samurai RTP is 97.44%. This is decent and above the industry average of between 95-96%. Also, this game is a medium volatility slot. For cautious players who still want OK wins, this strikes a balance between low and high volatility. You can expect to have a scattering of wins, with some higher paying wins thrown in.
