Gameplay and Layout
The first thing you’ll notice is the animated intro video which provides the backstory for the game. Both the intro and the gameplay are beautifully animated with slow-falling cherry flower petals, Japanese monks walking around, and the smoke from the hot spring spreading all over the background. Furthermore, the background is decorated by the rising Sun and the temple is built in traditional style.
The slot is filled with different and interesting symbols and edged with traditional Japanese patterns. The minimum wager is $0.25, and the maximum is $50 – this is pretty generous, and allows mid-to-high stakes players to really get involved.

Mystery Symbols can appear on any reel, during any spin. After the spin, all the Mystery symbols are replaced by one ordinary symbol or the wild, which usually adds up to a healthy payout.
Bonus symbols appear on the reels 1, 3, and 5. When there are three Bonus symbols on the reels, the player is awarded 10 free spins and the Dropping Wilds feature is activated.
The Dropping Wild symbol has two features. First, it substitutes all of the ordinary symbols. Secondly, it triggers respins. After every respin, the Dropping Wild symbol drops onto the reels. The respin feature is activated as long as there are Dropping Wilds on the reels.
If one Dropping Wild is stacked upon another symbol of the same kind, the whole reel gets filled with Dropping Wilds. This means that you’ll be playing a whole lot of free spins, and raking in the cash!
Samurai’s Fortune is the latest in a wave of Japanese or Samurai-themed slots, but it’s also one of the most impressive. The special features are understated yet powerful, and the game’s design is pleasing across the board. A fun, enjoyable game for all types of player!
