Free Samurai Princess Slots
The opening credits to the Samurai Princess slot sets the scene nicely. The beautiful royal stands to the right of the scene bedecked in a red leather outfit, including red gloves and a red headband, whilst holding a Samurai sword. She overlooks her Kingdom, which shows a river scene, the river winding its way through ancient Oriental buildings and colorful river beds.
The Princess herself is the central character on the reels, being both the wild and the highest paying, and she really comes into her own during the free spins bonus feature. Joining her on this oversized slot are her horse, an impressive blue dragon, a pair of swords and a water lily, all enhancing the Oriental theme of the game.
Samurai Princess Slot Gameplay
Samurai Princess is a five reel slot, with each of the reels showing four symbols as opposed to the more usual three. The game has a total of 40 pay lines, this number set so you won’t have the option to play fewer. Below the reels you’ll find five buttons where you’ll choose the credits per line, the options being 1, 2, 3, 5 or 10 credits. You’ll also choose the coin size, the options being 2c, 5c, 10c and 25c.
To win you’ll need to land consecutive symbols from left to right in a row on a pay line. The Samurai Princess wild will substitute for any other symbol on the reels apart from the scatter. This symbol pays out when landing 2, 3, 4 or 5 in a row, with the top payout of 1,000 coins when hitting the maximum 5. The blue dragon, the samurai swords and the water lilies pay 500, 300 and 250 coins respectively for the maximum 5 in a row. Playing card letters and numbers fill the rest of the reels, ranging from the number 8 all the way through to the Ace, the Ace paying 200 coins while the rest of the cards pay 100 coins for hitting 5 in a row.
The game is set against the same backdrop as seen in the opening credits, the painted scene one of the more impressive backdrops you’ll find online. The reels are backed by light blue patterned tiles, while the pay line indicators found either side of the reels add much color to the slot. With so many playing card characters, these can dominate a little at times, which takes away from the nice design of the theme relevant symbols a little – although the overall design has to be commended. This is added to by the excellent Far eastern style soundtrack which accompanies the game throughout.
The auto spin option is a very straightforward, as you’ll simply click the button to reveal 5, 10, 20, 50 or 100 spins. Make your choice and then sit back and enjoy watching the Samurai Princess get to work, hopefully bringing you some nice payouts.
Samurai Princess Slot Feature
The scatter symbol is the armored horse owned by the Samurai Princess. This offers an immediate payout of 80, 400 or 2,000 coins when you hit 3, 4 or 5 of these scatters respectively, but more importantly perhaps, you’ll also gain entry to the free spins bonus round. The feature sees you given 7 free spins, but you’ll find the game plays very differently from the base game, due to the Samurai Princess wild. On reels 1, 3 and 5 the wild symbol acts as normal apart from the fact that it can be stacked at times. However on reels 2 and 4, the wild becomes an expanding one, filling the entire reel every time it appears. This is not the end of it however, as every time the expanding wild appears you’ll find a multiplier attached to it – this multiplier worth 2x, 3x or 5x.
Despite the relatively low number of spins at 7, this feature can be crazy at times, as wilds can literally be everywhere. The combination of one or more stacked wilds on reels 1, 3 or 5 with an expanding wild on reels 2 or 4 (with the added multiplier of course) could give you a huge win at any moment, making for a particularly exciting feature.
Samurai Princess Slot Conclusion
Samurai Princess is an impressive offering by High 5 Games. The impressive graphics and sound make a nice first impression and the slightly oversized reels give the game a slightly unique format. Like many slots, this one really hits the mark when the feature comes along, where the large number of wilds will virtually ensure that you’ll be paid out and paid out well. Don’t win too much however, as you might have the Princess on your case – not a bad thing normally, but she does have a sword!
