The Shaman game can be found at casinos offering Endorphina software. Endorphina are one of the newer casino software providers on the market but they have managed to gain distribution with some of the largest casino networks currently active within the market. As a standard Endorphina do publish the RTP/House Edge information for their slots games within the game help file or paytables. As a software provider not licensed in the UK, and as such not required to publish this information, this is a significantly player friendly practice. As such we can state that the Shaman House Edge is 4.00%.
Shaman is a 5 reel slots game and each reel is 3 symbols high. The game uses 10 paylines, playing from left to right.
Wild– The “Shaman Moon” is the Wild symbol, substituting for all symbols. The Wild symbol is only available on the middle reel and when it appears it expands to fill that reel and the reels adjacent to it.
Take Risk – Whilst you might not necessarily class this as a bonus feature, it does play a significant role in the gaming experience. With every win you get the chance to try and double your win by trying your luck in a game of “Play Your Cards Right” with the game’s dealer. If you can flip over a card that is higher than the one the dealer is showing you will double your win. Flip a card that is lower than the dealer’s and you lose the lot. This round continues until you either choose to stop gambling or you lose out to the dealer. In the result of a tie, no one wins.
Shaman in an interesting looking game. It explores a theme that is far from common in the slots world and has a similar look and feel to it as the Mongol Treasures games also released by Endorphina. The symbols are well drawn, but lack the vibrancy that some might expect from a slots game. There are no bonus features to mention, other than the expanding wilds, which should be an addition to some bonus features, not the only bonus feature. All in all this is a pretty uninspiring game that most will find themselves tiring of very quickly.
