Microgaming have teamed up with Just For The Win to bring you Shogun of Time – an adventurous, time travelling slot set in Japan. This timeless game offers a whole range of epic features including: free spins, wild symbols, and a reel split respin feature that enables an extra reel to appear – increasing your chances for a big win!

Japan’s ancient past clashes with its technologically advanced future in Shogun of Time. The game circulates around the story of a historic female samurai war-lord and her alter ego, the cyber girl. The main game plays with 4 reels, 3 rows and 81 paylines. You can win up to 12 times your bet.

What are the key features?

Free Spins

Free spins are represented by the pink Japanese flower symbol. Land 3 or 4 free spin symbols anywhere on the reels during the base game to trigger the free spins feature. If you land 3 free spin symbols, you’ll receive 8 spins and upon landing 4 free spin symbols, you’ll get 16 spins. Free spins are played with an extra reel, creating a 5-reel game and they are payable up to 243 ways, both ways.

During the free spin feature, the middle reel becomes a stacked wild containing 3 locked wild symbols. The wild symbol substitutes for all other symbols on the reels, boosting your chance for a mega win! During this feature, wins are paid if 3 or more symbols appear in succession from the leftmost position on the reels to the rightmost position, or visa versa.

What Makes This Free Spin Feature Different from Others?

The free spin feature uses the same bet amount from the last spin on the base game – you could win up to 12 times that bet!

Reel Split Respin Feature

The reel split respin feature increases the pay ways from 81 to 243! During the feature, an additional reel will appear between reels 2 and 3. This extra reel will be the only one that spins, all other reels will be locked. The feature gives you the chance to hit one or several 5-line wins, which is not possible in the base game!

The reel split respin can only be featured while you’re in the base game. When a win of 4 symbols in succession is achieved, the feature might appear – it’s down to chance!

Gameplay – can you expect big wins?

With 81 to 243 pay lines both ways and a medium level of volatility, the answer is yes! A win of up to 12x your bet is achievable, and the game will only ever pay the highest payline per win. Shogun of Time has a high pay out percentage of 96.02% and you can expect a hit every 5.18 spins.

Our verdict

Shogun of Time is set in both the past and the present and contains features from past slots by Microgaming but it also boasts a new, modern feature with the reel split respin feature. The amount of paylines makes for an exciting game and we really enjoyed playing it. The features pop up often and we had some modest wins to keep our gameplay going. Of course, these wins would have been bigger with a bigger bet, but we wanted to see how this game played for the average player. Depending on your own bet, you have the potential to win epic amounts on Shogun of Time!
