Nine Tails Review
In Japanese folktales, a kitsune is a fox that can transform into a human. This can often be done to trick others or to be a faithful guardian to humans. With the case of Habanero's Nine Tails, the kitsune is crucial in helping you gain bigger wins.
This oriental slot plays on 5-reels with 259 ways to win through the Connected Ways. With free spins and lucky 9 tails, you could be winning up to 46,865x stake in no time!
It's clear from the offset, that this slot is set at a Japanese temple with a buddha statue at the entrance and a red shrine gate. Surrounding these, you'll find beautiful flowers and greenery to light up the screen along with a full moon in the distance.
Sat next to the reels, is a female figure that has a white bob with a traditional kimono on and looks like Kanata Ubuyashiki (or her sisters) from Demon Slayer. She looks poised at the start but changes through spins depending on what colour you change her to.
As for the music, you can expect traditional East Asian music with a shamisen playing along with drums creating something magical and ethereal. Naturally, this gets more intense during spins but stays absolutely breathtaking.
In terms of the gameplay, there's not a whole lot to this slot as all you do is spin and hope for a win. Of course, there are modifiers and free spins but nothing too complicated.
All of the relevant buttons can be found at the bottom of the screen with the spin button, bet level and autospin. At the far left, you'll find the information button which has the game instructions if you need them.
Nine Tails has a medium volatility level but leans more towards high volatility in our experience meaning that there are less frequent wins but higher wins when they eventually land. As for the volatility, there's an impressive level of 96.75% which is brilliant.
The maximum win is an incredible amount giving players the potential to reach up to 46,865x stake which is an amazing amount. This can be achieved through free spins with the tails!
On top of that, you also have the Jackpot Race which is will be available at certain casinos and adds a jackpot to the slot - check with your chosen casino first.
This is definitely a unique concept within the iGaming world and shows a different side to the oriental slot which we absolutely loved. Not only is it visually stunning, but the music just fits the slot so well.
The design is flawless and the gameplay is even better with the Connected Ways making it easier to land wins. If you want an original oriental slot that's just thoroughly enjoyable to play, then be sure to check out Nine Tails.
