Katana video slot

Katana slot was released by Novomatic in 2012. Still, most of the classic slot machine developer was born much earlier. And for this reason, the slot comes with a lot of features; the most important - quite nice graphics (but still looks terrible to the fan). In general, it is a very good machine, which is really fun to play. It combines classic and old times but still looks older because it takes players back to the times and life of the samurais. Incidentally, in the land-based casinos, this game is called (though not always) the Shogun (Shogun) and quite markedly different from its online version. For example, the bonus game as many as 15 free spins start instead of 10, (which increases the dispersion).


Out of the total prize pool, for which 95.016% of all bets are reserved, 62% will go to the rewards in usual spins. The probability of getting a hit reaches up to 26.53% in them. During testing, free spins are given out with a frequency of 0.44%. The maximum payout reached up to 796 bets. Therefore, I give only neutral recommendations for real bets, because you will not manage to fulfil the wager requirements at this slot machine.

Being based on a rather amusing topic - the history and culture of Japan (Samurai, Shogun, geisha and all that), in the game plan, Katana slot is not much different from many other classic slots from Novomatic. This means one important thing: a bonus in this case - the king. Without it, you will not see major gains as bodybuilders do not see on the dried sweet. Bonus game gives you 10 free spins on a roll of three scatters. And Wild (image Shogun) in the bonus round is extended to the entire length of the drum, forming a very sweet combination. The principle here is the same as, for example, in Beech of-Ra, a more modern animation - three vertical symbols are replaced by one large, which shows the Shogun in full growth. So, to hit a big win in the Katana slot, it is imperative to catch bonus (which, incidentally, is not so easy). However, if you catch five shoguns in line, you win up to 50,000 coins! And that, you know, is a lot of money (especially if you play at a maximum rate of 100 Coin). It takes a lot of time and money. But if the machine does decide to give a prize - do not be surprised of its size.
