Imperial Japan is the setting for Samurai’s Fortune, a 5 reel, 25 payline slot from Stake Logic. Look out for special mystery symbols that transform into the same matching symbol as well as a free spins round complete with dropping wilds and re-spins. Awaken your inner warrior, on all devices, from between 25p and £50 per spin.

There’s a very traditional feel to the design in Samurai’s Fortune – you’ll see a temple, statues and blossom trees in the background. On the reels are bronze, silver and gold coins alongside snakes, monks, geishas and warriors. Land 5 warriors in a line and you’ll win 24 times your stake. There’s also a wild, the koi carp, which replaces all other symbols bar the bonus. There are 2 extras on offer in Samurai’s Fortune.

Mystery Symbol feature – look out for the gargoyle style masks which can land on any spin. When they do, they all transform into the same matching symbol and a new payout consideration is made.

Free Spins feature – land the red warrior’s mask bonus symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5 on the same spin and you’ll trigger the feature. Here you’ll be awarded 10 free spins with dropping wilds. These special wilds replace all other symbols bar the bonus and trigger a re-spin whenever they hit.

As the name suggests, the dropping wilds drop down 1 position with each re-spin and continue until no more are on show. If a dropping wild lands on top of another dropping wild, the whole reel turns wild. Only 1 re-spin can be triggered at a time.

Samurai’s Fortune is a well-designed game. The historical-style visuals are finely craft and there’s a classical backing track to accompany the action while you spin. The gameplay also has a rather traditional feel. The mystery symbols are a nice addition to the base game though and the re-spins can deliver some excellent action in the bonus round. We’d put the variance in the medium range with top payouts of 600 times your stake on each spin.

Samurai’s Fortune offers a very traditional take on a classic slots theme. It’s simply done but works rather well. If you enjoy the martial arts theme then you’d be advised to take a closer look at Samurai’s Fortune. Other options include Playtech’s Satsumo’s Revenge and iSoftBet’s Shaolin Spin.
