Initially, the Three Samurai video slot machine uses five reels, three rows, and 20 winning lines. But, during the bonus features, the reel formations may alter and form a 5x4 matrix with 40 pay lines. Thankfully, the gaming process takes after every typical online slot. Just select a stake level and spin the reels at your will. Tap on either the Minus or Plus buttons to adjust your total stakes between €0.10 and €30. The range of low bets will be suitable for conservative players.
Play manually after every spin stop by clicking the Spin button once. Or, press the Autoplay button and activate up to a thousand automated spins. A unique Burst Mode is available that makes Autoplay even faster! But, you can neither see the spinning reels nor the symbol formations when this mode is active. Cancel both the Autoplay and Burst mode at any time. Find the Quick Spin option from Settings within the Menu page.
All the symbols and their corresponding pays and functions are available in the paytable. You need to match three, four, or five identical icons to form winning combos. All winning combinations in Three Samurai pay from left to right, on active pay lines, and consecutive reels. Only the highly-priced symbol combination per bet line pays out.
Eleven symbols grouped into low, medium, and high-paying categories form the symbol lineup. Four coins in Green, Red, Silver, and Gold produce the lowest wins worth between 0.4 and 2x the total bet. Then, the Cooling Paper Fan, the Koi Fish, the Coin Bag, and the Tortoise statue are the medium symbols worth 0.6x to 4x your selected stake. Three Samurai characters are the most worthy regular icons that deliver up to 8x the set bet.
A Blue Hexagon artwork in a brown casing is the Three Samurai slot wild symbol. It substitutes for all symbols exempting the scattered Bonus icon. Additionally, it pays the highest symbol payout of 25x the stake!
During the base game, a random Dragons Luck feature will activate. Two dragons appear and blow a random color fire corresponding to one of the top-paying characters. The Samurai then transforms into a wild symbol and performs the substitution function. This feature also reveals the 4th row, thereby boosting the number of playable lines to 40!
Three Bonus Scatters anywhere on the 1st, 3rd, and 5th reels trigger the Three Samurai Free Spins. At the start of the feature, you receive a chance to choose one out of four options, with varying games, win multipliers, volatility, and RTP:
The picked Samurai warrior becomes a stacked symbol throughout the free round. Further, this mode uses four symbol rows and 40 lines.
When getting a win with the stacked warrior, the Stacked Nudge feature attempts to increase win potentials with the Samurai. If the stacked Samurai nudges to cover all four column pockets, you receive a gem to the reel’s collecting gauge. A full collect meter awards +1 free game with the staked Samurai turning into a stacked Wild for the remaining games.
As seen from the free spin options, the Three Samurai RTP can range between 96.41% to 96.45%. But, with high volatility, gamblers need to brace for various dry spins before landing decent wins.
