Shogun of Time is a Japanese themed slot by mobile games developer, Just for the Win, that has distinctive cyberpunk influences and beautifully rendered graphics to deliver a dazzling playing experience for mobile phone and tablet users.
The name for the Shogun of Time slot game comes from the famous military commanders that ruled Japan between the 8th and the 12th century, but as the shoguns in this title are also time-travellers, they’re depicted in futuristic armour and helmets.
This mobile slot uses four reels and eighty-one paylines in the base game. However, thanks to the thrilling re-spins and free spins features, you can benefit from five reels and two hundred and forty-three ways to win.
The cyberpunk-inspired heroine is one of the highest-paying symbols in the game, and you can also win prizes through Japanese fans, chest plates, coins, the slots logo, face masks, and helmets, as well as the standard 10, J, Q, K, and A playing card symbols.
When you play the slot on your mobile device, you’ll first be shown a short video sequence that introduces you to the shogun and her friend. Once the intro is over, the main game screen loads to show a night-time cityscape, cherry blossom trees, and a teleportation device in the centre.
Shogun of Time allows you to place a minimum and maximum bet of 10p to £100 on each spin, and the other game options allow you to view the rules and paytable, enable auto-play, adjust the graphics quality, and mute the sounds.
The top win is worth 135,870 coins or around 2,500 times your stake, and the RTP of 96.02% is above average.
Just for the Win has chosen to use the feisty female shogun as the wild symbol in the Shogun of Time slot. The wild can replace all other symbols to create winning combinations except for the scatter, and it can also appear stacked on the reels.
The scatter symbol in the game is the cherry blossom branch, and it triggers the Free Spins Bonus when it appears three times on the same spin.
If ever there was a special feature that made playing mobile casino games a must-try experience, it has to be the Reel Split Respin Feature in the Shogun of Time slot. Any time that you create a four-symbol win, the teleportation chamber in the centre of the screen opens up to add an extra reel to the playing area. It simultaneously opens up the number of paylines to two hundred and forty-three. The extra reel awards a respin while all of the other reels remain in place, and if a new win is created; as a result, you gain another respin.
Three or four scatter symbols get you eight or sixteen free spins and just like in the Reel Split Respin Feature, the Free Spins Bonus uses five reels rather than four. This time, the middle reel is filled with sticky wilds, plus wins can be formed from left-to-right as well as right-to-left.
