The Wombat says: Pack your bags Wombat Fans, and don’t forget your futons as we’re off to Japan to check out the Legend of the 5 Ninjas slot from Eyecon – those legends behind upbeat games like to Caravan to Cairo slot and Fluffy Favourites. We call them the Good Mood slots!
In this game, you’ll meet the infamous deadly assassins, the aforementioned Ninjas, who are all masters of the dark martial arts.
According to legend, these cunning warriors had to try to master the secrets of the Scroll of Knowledge and you’ll find 5 of them (Ka, Sui, Ku, Chi and Fu all named after the 5 Elements) doing battle on the reels while trying to pick up some stealthy wins for you… They look like they could even take on our favourite sleuth from the Agent Jane Blonde Returns slot, Walther PPK and all.
Look and Feel
Eyecon aren’t exactly known for their cutting edge graphics, but this slot is the exception! We love the anime-style cartoon visuals and as it’s set in Japan your reels are framed by see a wooden dojo with burning lanterns and swaying bamboo on either side. This game’s has got more cartoon style than the Wild-O-Tron 3000 slot and that is saying something.
Thrown in some traditional Japanese style music and you’ll feel like you’re in Kyoto.
Legend of the 5 Ninjas Slot Game Play
Legend of the 5 Ninjas slot has 5 reels 3 rows and 243 Ways to Win. This means that there are no traditional pay-lines in the game, theorectically making it much easier to land winning combinations. Instead, the slot pays out left to right, starting from the leftmost reel.
Your symbols on the reels include; the 5 ninjas, some spears, bombs, daggers, nunchucks and swords, providing you with everything you need to be a first class ninja.
The Wild icon in this game is the ancient scrolls symbol, which will substitute for all other symbols (except the Scatter) to make up extra winning combos for you.
The Scatter is Godai, the chief ninja fella who looks like he’s wearing a shiny colourful necklace. Keep your eyes peeled for this symbol as it’s the key to the Free Spins bonus.
