There are a few time travel themed online slots, but none that exceed Microgaming’s Shogun of Time. The game takes place in a Japanese city of the future. The high quality of the graphics and sound effects makes it as much fun to watch as play.
Graphics and Symbols
The background of the game depicts skyscrapers located behind the reels. Complete with a teleportation device, the time travel theme is heavily represented. On either side of the reels are lotus blossoms.
Filling the reels are symbols associated with old world Japan. The symbols used are a mask and helmets, Japanese fans, warriors’ body armor and coins. The game’s logo serves as the scatter while the Shogun named in the title is the wild symbol.
When players get any of the symbols on the reels four times in one spin they get to play the re-spin feature called Reel Split. The feature gives players an extra reel between the second and third reels. It uses something called a Ways To Win Engine. This increases a player’s chances of winning money.
During Reel Split, the original reels transform into sticky reels. The extra reel added in for this bonus does not become sticky. While the sticky reels remain in place, the extra reel keeps spinning.
There is also a free spins feature. When players get three of the scatter symbol on the reels at once, they get eight spins for free. When players get four of the scatter symbol on the reels they get 16 free spins. While free spins are being played, each reel expands. This means that players may even win the prize with the Ways To Win feature. All wilds appearing during free spins become stacked wilds.
