Hanzo’s Dojo is powered by Yggdrasil Gaming and has 5 reels and 25 paylines – playable from 25p to £125 a spin on all devices, you head to the Land of the Rising Sun where you encounter the fiercest of fighters in the ultimate training ground. It comes with 2 free spins features, Colossal Symbols and Expanding Wild reels – there’s also a mini-slot which gives you wild reels or free spins with a colossal fighter symbol.
Aesthetically, Hanzo’s Dojo is what you’d expect from Yggdrasil Gaming. Set in Japan, it’s based on Hattori Hanzo who is a legendary sensei – he provides the ultimate training ground for the fiercest of fighters. Symbols on the reels include what look to be cards with bonsai trees, tsuru cranes (birds), wind storms and waves. You will also see the fighters – the samurai, ninja, sumo and fan fighter who battle to become the greatest of warriors. There’s also a wild which replaces all symbols bar the scatter.
Hanzo’s Dojo comes with a Rooftop Slot feature as a mini slot machine appears above the reels (the Sensei Sector). Triggered by landing symbols in the mini slot machine, you can benefit from wilds that expand down to the main reel set, 3 mini free spins when you get 3 mystery symbols where the revealed symbol is locked and access to the Free Spins feature with added extras.
The Free Spins feature can also be access when you get a combination of 3+ Free Spin symbols (the scatter) on the main reel set – each of them gives you 3 free spins. Look out for Dragon Free Spin symbols as these give you 4 free spins and 1 added feature.
Once in, the middle 3 reels will reveal 3x3 Colossal Symbols – if you get a Dragon Free Spin symbol, you will receive 1 additional free spin and 1 added feature. When it comes to the added features, you can benefit from 2 additional free spins, win both ways pays, a 3x3 Colossal Symbol nudge, a 2x multiplier or a wild 5th reel. This occurs for every Dragon Free Spin symbol showing so there’s plenty of scope to add to the initial haul of free spins.
I really like Hanzo’s Dojo – it’s looks fantastic and has potential to pay out big in the Mini Slot feature as it can result in 3 wild reels each time. It’s all about the Free Spins feature where the 2x multiplier, extra free spins, win both ways pays, wild reel and Colossal Symbol nudges can combine to catastrophic effect.
It’s a medium variance slot that offers maximum payouts of 2,100 times your total stake on each free spin (using the 2x multiplier). Just hope for plenty of Dragon Free Spin symbols appearing in the free spins for the bigger rewards. If you like the theme, NetEnt’s Warlords: Crystals of Power has a similar theme with excellent free spins features based on each of the warlords.
