In the world of slots there really can’t be enough games themed by ninjas, can there?
Having had an eyeful of Eyecon’s Legend of the Five Ninjas slot, a game packed with energy and a 243 Ways to Win engine powering the play, the answer is no with this barnstorming addition to the martial arts fantasy slot world.
If you’re a fan of Eyecon’s games you may already have shared a tryst with Five Ninjas, the original game that this second fight-tastic slot follows in grand style.
Look and feel
The Legend of Five Ninjas has a cartoony look with a nod to manga styling. It’s not as impressive as something like the Arctic Enchantress slot but then it’s not trying to be.
You will find your reels set in a bamboo forest: front and centre is the all-important dojo-the hall where ninja skills are learnt. On either side of the dojo hall, there are torches and lamps. This is where the five ninjas of the game’s title can practice and perfect their fighting art.
There’s a cartoony atmosphere where spinning the reels throws the animation into action with a blowing of the bamboo surrounding the reel spinning action.
There are the background tones of the exotic Far East bringing a nice little sonic accompaniment to the slot play.
Legend of the Five Ninjas Game Play
This Far Eastern themed fighting challenge is set across 3 rows, 5 reels and those big shiny 243 Ways to Win. A pretty traditional game engine then, compared to a game like the Sweet Bonanza slot from Pagmatic Play, but it plays well.
To win you simply need to land three matching icons adjacent to each other left to right across the reels. So far so simple.
The five high value icons are the five ninjas of the game’s title, suitably disguised; this fighting crew are accompanied by lower value icons, the weapons of choice – a fire throwing ball, a pair of fighting swords, a machete, a fighting chain and a group of three throwing knives.
The Wild is a paper scroll but this symbol only turns up on reels 2, 3 and 4 and substitutes for all icons except the Scatter which is a Godai character, a master ninja.
Land three of the ultra-ninja Godai across the reels and unleash the Free Games feature.
There are five options for you to get your mitts on including:
– A temping 20 free games with a double multiplier,
– 15 free games with a triple multiplier
– 10 games with a quadruple multiplier
– 8 games with a x5 multiplier
– Or 5 games with a fist-pumping x10 multiplier.
And this game isn’t a slouch when it comes to the generosity stakes, land further Scatters and re-trigger this profitable Free Spins feature.
With fun packed styling and a good atmosphere, Legend of the Five Ninjas is a medium variance game. This energetic slot’s potential x 10 multiplier plus its 243 Ways to Win engine makes this a welcome addition to the high hitting fight fest slots of the past, but this time bringing this game out of its older brother’s shadow and literally kicking and screaming into the present.
