Review and recommendations from the testers team
Shaman slot machine is a clone of such slots as Sugar Glider and 4 of a King because it has completely similar gameplay. Like the clones, Shaman slot does not have a bonus game or free spins but issues an additional wild symbol expansion feature during the main game.
- Despite the fact that payouts are not only in both directions, but also for combinations located along central reels, nevertheless, the slot still often makes sometimes long series of spins without winnings, and the average winning is only 1-12 bets (for combinations without the wild symbol). Sometimes, the slot gives out more expensive combinations. In general, it can be said that without the issuance wild symbol (more precisely, while it is waiting), the slot holds the balance very poorly, and the losses are compensated almost entirely by combinations with the wild symbol.
- Unlike Sugar Glider slot, where bonus wild symbols are issued in series, this slot rarely does such thing and prefers the bonus symbol to be issued once in 30-150 spins (on average, every 60-80 spins).
- At the same time, not every wild symbol issuance brings big winnings, for example, when issuing a wild symbol in 1 or 5 reels, it is rare to expect a big win, and the average value is 20-40 bets. The issuance of the wild symbol in 2/3/4 reels brings larger winnings, the values of which vary up to several hundred bets. The minimum win received during testing for a combination with wild symbol was 8 bets, and the maximum win was 234 bets.
- The risk game in this slot is a card (classic) game.
Despite the fact that during testing, the loss of balance was minimal for several hundred spins, thanks to several big wins with the wild symbol, the slot is designed so that the combinations issued during the main game (without the wild symbol) does not keep the balance at all, and the losses of the balance are compensated only by combinations with the wild symbols. Given that the intervals of spin between the issuance of combinations with the wild symbol are sometimes very long, and the winnings are not guaranteed, I would not recommend this slot for games with bonus money, since there are certain risks. When playing with real money, short game sessions are recommended, in order to get a well-located wild symbol from the start of the game, since given the style of the game and the actual maximum win, long sessions are almost meaningless.
Symbols and winnings
Any player is offered a small range of bets per spin. The maximum stake which you can put is 100 coins. Up to 10 pay lines will participate in this game process.

Bonus from Shaman
Shaman on the background of the moon replaces all the symbols, and it is active in any cell. Furthermore, this symbol has unique features. If it appears on the central reel in the 2nd cell, Shaman symbol will be expanded on your playing field by making the block of 3x3.
The risk game is available in any spin which brought a payment. You will need to guess where your card is hidden that is bigger than the dealer's card. Choosing 1 card out of 4 is necessary. By the way, the paytable shows us the probabilities of appearing all the playing cards. So you should always evaluate the dealer`s card before you decide to take a chance.
