Samurai Split is a beautiful Japanese themed slot machine, with an obvious focus being on the Samurai warriors of this country, the ancient ones at least, which were present everywhere a couple of hundred years ago. The slot machine is a new one, which is offered by NextGen Gaming.
In Samurai Split, the player has 5 reels at his disposal, with 25 fixed pay lines. The game is capable of delivering payouts of up to $40,000, after taking full advantage of the Split feature. Other major features introduced here included the free spins, wilds or scatters that are available in a lot of other slots.
Betting and Prizes
You will be playing with a fixed bet of 40 coins, on 25 lines. You can decide what the coins are worth, but you can’t change their number. The range of the denomination for a coin is between $0.01 and $2.50. Your full range for your bets is between $0.40 and $100.
If we’re looking at the regular combinations available in the game, the wild’s 500 coins are the ones that hold most promise, since they bring you up to $1,250. With the Split feature improving it, that same payout can go up to $40,000.
Samurai Split Slot Machine Features
The Split Symbol is one of the most important features available in this game. This is a chance that symbols get, to be split by the samurai, giving you two symbols instead of one on the same position. The presence of the additional symbol will increase the value of the prize. You can get up to 32x the original payout, if all symbols in a combo are split.
Warrior Spins are also present among the features of Samurai Split. These are triggered at random and they give the player a round where there are only scatter symbols, wilds, masks, temple, horse, swords and bottle symbols present.
The free spins can benefit from the Split Symbols feature as well. Normally, having three to five scattered Flags will get you 5, 10 or 15 free spins. If the scatters are split, you can end up with up to 480 free spins. Once again, the lower paying symbols are not going to appear on the reels, so the odds of getting a win are improved.
The final major feature that the game offers is based on the wild symbol. You have a logo here, placed against a red decoration. The wild symbols are substitutes which can come in handy if they land in the right spot. They can also act as regular symbols and form combinations which pay up to 500 coins.
Obviously, the most memorable feature offered in this game is the Split Symbol, which has been used in other slots as well, but not quite in this way, and not with such big effects even when it comes to scatters and free spins. This is one side of the game that I think everyone will want to try out.
Theme & Design
In terms of graphics, I found the game to be satisfying, with the design doing very well in turning Ancient Japan into a slot machine. Though some poker logos do exist among the symbols, the game also offers the samurai, castles, horses, swords and bottles on the reels.
Samurai Split is an enjoyable game, with a Samurai inspired theme that a lot of players will want to check out, but also with some unique features inside that I found interesting.
