Shogun of Time is powered by Just For The Win and Microgaming – it comes with 4 reels and 81 paylines (initially). Playable from 10p to £100 a spin across devices, this cyber-punk inspired offering comes with a re-spin feature where a 5th reel is added with more ways to win. There’s also a free spins feature where you’ll play up to 16 free spins on a 5 reel, 243 ways to win reel set.
Visually, Shogun of Time is rather nice – it has a cyber-punk feel with ancient Japan combining with the advanced, technological future. Set in a teleporting station, symbols on the reels include A, K, Q, J and 10 royals as well as coins, fans, warriors chest plates, face masks and helmets. Look out fo the Shogun of Time logo symbol as 5 will give you 12 times your stake.
The time-travelling cyber punk is the wild symbol and also pays like the most rewarding symbol – it also performs all the usual replacing duties. If you’re lucky enough to get a 4 of a kind winning combination, the Reel Split Re-spin feature can come into play – a 5th reel is added in the middle with the other 4 reels locking in place. Just the new reel will re-spin to give you a better winning combination.
The main attraction is the Free Spins feature which is played when you get 3 or 4 scatters – you will then get 8 or 16 free spins. These free spins take place on a 5 reel, 243 ways to win reel set. The middle reel (reel 3) is a wild reel throughout the feature.
Oddly (but nicely) designed) Shogun of Time is quite a simple slot – it’s a medium variance title that can pay out over 2,717 times your total stake on every free spin (with 5 reels and 243 ways to win). If you like Japanese inspired slots, Playtech’s Satsumo’s Revenge is recommended.
