The new Rise of Samurai Megaways online slot from Pragmatic Play was first released in August 2021 exclusively at Paddy Power Casino, and now, in September 2021, it can also be found at several other top-rated online casinos, such as 32 Red Casino, Mansion Casino and Mr Green Casino.

If you hadn’t already guessed by the title, this new Pragmatic Play slot is a Japanese Warrior/Samurai-themed slot, and it comes with 6 regular reels and up to 200,704 different ways to win per spin. It’s available in the real money mode and free play demo mode, and the standard betting range lets you take one spin of the reels from as little as $/€/£0.20 up to a maximum of $/€/£100.00 per spin. However, there’s also an Ante Bet that increases your total stake by 25%.

Playing with the Ante Bet switched on will DOUBLE your chances of trigger the main bonus feature, and it means that you can play from as little as $/€/£0.25 per spin up to $/€/£125.00 per spin. The other side bet available in this game allows you to directly into the main bonus feature at the start of any spin, but it will cost you an extra 100x times your total stake, and, unfortunately, UK players don’t have access to this optional side bet.

As you spin the reels, the two most important symbols to keep an eye out for are the Wild Symbols (the samurai warrior with the word ‘wild’) and the Scatter Symbols (the dragon). Wild Symbols can only ever land on reels 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6, so never on the leftmost reel, and they will substitute all other symbols apart from the Scatter Symbols, which can land in any position across any of the reels. You will also notice an extra bonus reel that spins horizontally above reels 2, 3, 4 and 5.

The game comes with a Tumbling Reels game engine, which instantly kicks into action each time a new winning combo forms. Each time a win lands, the winning symbols that are in view will be removed from the reels, which then causes the same number of symbols to tumble down from above and fill the empty positions. If another winner is created, then another free tumble will be awarded, and the process will only stop happening when there are no more new wins in view.

You need to land 3 or more Scatter Symbols anywhere in view on the same spin to trigger the Wheel of Fortune bonus feature - a fun side game where you can win anywhere from 5 to 20 Free Spins and a 2X to 25X Win Multiplier, plus additional Free Spins can also be retriggered during the bonus. The new Rise of Samurai Megaways online slot is one of the hottest new online slots to play in September 2021, so don’t forget to check it out when you next play at any of the trusted online casinos I mentioned above. The max win in this game on any lucky spin is capped at a cool 5,000x times your total stake, and it has an average 95,69% return to player payout percentage rate.
