The Samurai were the noble warriors of feudal Japan, grandly depicted in this slot game which also incorporates many elements of Japan’s cultural heritage. Enjoy your spinning while you listen to the relaxing themes from the Far East, transporting you back to the honourable past.
Created by Playtech, this slot has a standard 5×3 design with 243 paylines. It includes numerous bonuses including multipliers, free spins, and wilds.
Although the name of the slot only mentions a warrior, the theme actually includes many elements of Japanese culture and history.
Gameplay and Layout
The background of the game is dominated by the shades of pink which symbolise the cherry blossom and the most beautiful season in Japan – spring. The reels are set in a hazy area and the players can recognise outlines of a tree and a traditional oriental building.
Playtech enables the two spin options in the game: turbo and auto spin. The former will speed up the spinning of the reels, while the latter will automatically spin the reels a set number of times.
The average RTP here is 95%. The minimum bet is $0.25 and the maximum goes up to $2500. The maximum possible win is 2,500,000 coins. The symbols include the Samurai (wild), the Golden hat (scatter) and various other Japanese elements. There are also playing cards, as per usual!
The Samurai Feature
The Samurai Feature is a combination of multipliers and free spins that is triggered by the scatter symbol. When you get three scatters consecutively on the reels, you trigger the Samurai Feature. It is a difficult feature to trigger, and it does not happen often, but when it does…let’s just say, you’ll appreciate the payout!
Before you proceed to the free spins, you get to choose whether you want to be more multiplier-oriented, or to get more spins in the bag, by choosing between the following options:
- 5 free spins with x10, x15 or x20 multipliers
- 8 free spins with x8, x10 or x15 multipliers
- 10 free spins with x5, x8 or x10 multipliers
- 15 free spins with x3, x5 or x8 multipliers
- 20 free spins with x2, x3 or x5 multipliers
Any game with high volatility can be frustrating, and the base game wins aren’t too exciting in Warriors Gold anyway. However, if you can patiently wait long enough to trigger the free spins game, it will be worth your while. Fun, entertaining, but a touch frustrating.
