Pixel Samurai Slot Review

Pixel Samurai is a Playtech jackpot slot which can be played from 10p a spin on all devices – played on a 5x5 grid, this retro/Japanese warrior themed game comes with cascading wins which allows you to win time and time again after each winning combination. The bigger the winning combo, the higher the win amount with up to 5,000 times your stake available if you get 16 or more Blue Lady symbols in combination. If you get 8 or more Red Samurai symbols in a win, you’ll win the progressive jackpot – depending on your stake, you’ll win between 1% and 100% of the jackpot amount.

Pixel Samurai is a Playtech progressive jackpot slot which is played on a 5 by 5 grid from 10p to £10 per spin – it’s available to play on desktop, mobile and tablet devices. With a retro/Japanese feel, the aim is land 5 or more matching warriors to form winning combinations. You’ll benefit from cascading wins too for even more wins – there’s also a progressive jackpot to be won.

Visually, Pixel Samurai has an 80s feel to it as the graphics will remind you of an 8-bit console game! With a Japanese theme and based on warriors, it comes with 6 different symbols – Red Samurai, Blue Lady, Subzero, Yellow Monk, Purple Sumo and Green Robin.

As mentioned above, the aim is the obtain combinations of 5 or more identical symbols either vertically and/or horizontally – in order to value, you have the Green Goblin, Purple Sumo, Yellow Monk, Subzero, Blue Lady and Red Samurai. Every time you get a winning combination, the contributing symbols explode and disappear to be replaced by new ones – this allows you to win again and again from each spin.

If you were to get 5 Red Samurai symbols in combination, you’d win 50 times your stake. Thinks get interesting if you get 16 or more of the same symbol in combination as they’d pay out 50 (Green Goblin), 100 (Purple Sumo), 500 (Yellow Monk), 1,000 (Subzero) or 5,000 (Blue Lady) times your stake.

If you’re lucky enough to get 8 or more Red Samurai symbols in combination, you will win a percentage (%) the Pixel Samurai progressive jackpot – you can win 1%, 2%, 5%, 10%, 20%, 50% or 100% of the progressive jackpot depending on your stake size. The bigger your stake, the bigger the % of the jackpot you’ll win. You can only win the full amount if playing at maximum stakes (£10 per spin).

Realistically, winning the progressive jackpot is a tall order – playing at £10 a spin is expensive so landing 100% of the progressive jackpot seems unlikely. Saying that, you can still win 5,000 times your stake if you get 16 or more Blue Lady symbols on the reels – in fact, you can win more as you benefit from cascading wins.

I found Pixel Samurai to be a high variance game so you need to be careful. Graphically, I love the fact it has a retro 8-bit feel and makes for a nice change – it also reminds me of my early computer playing days. If you like the graphics, I recommend you Thunderkick’s Flame Busters and iSoftBet’s Mega Boy which simulate old-school computer games.
