Pixel Samurai is a unique jackpot slot developed by Playtech based on Ancient Japanese Samurai warriors that's played on a 5x5 grid that sees cascading wins allow players the opportunity to trigger unlimited winning combinations time and again!
This gorgeous game is a unique hybrid between ancient Japanese samurai warriors and pixelated anime-style characters.
Behind the reels is a beautifully drawn town (designed in the style of an old-school 8-bit video game) full of Japanese temples and idyllic scenery such as trees, flaming lanterns and mountain ranges.
There 6 character symbols in total, a female Samuari, a strong male purple samurai, a mysterious samurai wearing a rice hat, a Samurai that looks like Mortal Combat character Sub Zero, a beautiful gesiha and finally the game's jackpot character, an angry flaming old man Samurai.
Each time the play button is pressed these characters will fly down from the top of the game screen dramatically and steady themselves as they land in place. They'll jump up again as they leave the reels to make way for a new combination of characters.
If you leave the game for a while without spinning the reels each of these characters will perform unique animations and do quirky little actions that will catch your attention.
In order to land winning combinations players must land 5 or more symbols adjacent to one another either horizontally or vertically (but not diagonally), It's that simple!
In terms of controlling the game, there's an orange spin button on the right-hand side of the reels. Above that are buttons that allow players to set their stake (between 0.10 and 10) and another set that allows players to set up to 99 automated spins. There's also a jackpot counter above all of these buttons that displays the current jackpot payout.
When winning combinations are formed a small box appears on the left-hand side of the reels informing players of their multiplied payout for each individual character, for example, if 6 green female Samurai's land then the box will read x6 pays and the payout.
This high volatility slot has an RTP of 93.98%, which isn't particularly terrible for a slot with a jackpot, however, it's the win potential that we really need to shout about... Brace yourself, this wonderful slot can see players win an absolutely massive 50,000x their stake!
We genuinely can't get enough of this game, for a modern online slot that doesn't retain any of the features of a standard game, it's incredibly easy to play. Playtech haven't overcomplicated things and we absolutely LOVE the fact we can win a percentage of the game's jackpot based on our current stake, rather than having to break the bank to be in with a chance of winning something.
