Microgaming teams up with Just for the Win to bring you Shogun of Time, a 3-row, 4-reel slot with 81 to 243 ways to win. The theme marries science fiction with the mysteries of the far East as we follow a Japanese warrior on his travel through time. In-game benefits include Reel Split Re-spins and up to 16 free spins. Shogun of time is available across all devices and offers max wins of 100,000 coins.
- The high value symbols include the games’ logo, the shogun’s mask, her breastplate, a green fan and a stack of silver coins.
- 10, J, Q, K and A represent the lower values.
- The Shogun warrior is wild and she will replace all others to help create winning matches, except for the pink flower scatter symbol.
- Reel Split Re-spin
This feature is activated after you achieve any 4-of-a-kind win. An extra reel will appear (aka the time machine), and it will spin on its’ own to reveal matching symbols, hopefully resulting in a win. The number of paylines also increase to 243 here.
- Free Spins
By landing 3 or 4 pink flower scatter symbols anywhere on the reels, you will be awarded with 8 or 16 free spins respectively. The extra reel will appear again during this round, but this time it will be completely wild for the duration of the feature. Wins can also be formed from right to left, as well as left to right.
Shogun of Time Slot Gameplay
Shogun of Time is a nicely crafted slot with some stunning animations that give it a cyberpunk feel. We do miss the fifth reel however, and feel that the reduced game window makes it harder to hit a big win. Having said that, there are some opportunities for decent wins during the free spins bonus rounds that pays both ways. Shogun of Time is a medium-variance slot and carries an RTP of 96.2%
