The Shogun of Time slots game can be found at Microgaming casinos. Microgaming as a standard now publish the slots house edge information of all their games at any online casino that holds a UKGC license (this is a requirement for all UKGC licensed casinos). As such we can say that the House Edge of Shogun of Time is 3.98%. When playing at any venue that does not hold a UKGC license and does not specifically publish the Return to Player information for their game, this information should be used as a guideline only as we cannot confirm whether or not this game is configurable.
Shogun of Time is a 5 reel game that is 3 symbols high. The game does not use traditional paylines, using way wins instead. You form winning combinations if you can reveal 3 identical symbols in a row across adjacent reels.
Wild – The Wild symbol is the “Shogun” and can only appear on reels 2-4. Wild symbols and will substitute for all symbols other than Free Spins symbols and Wild symbols can also come stacked, 3 symbols high.
Free Spins – The Free Spins symbol is the “Lotus Flower”. You need to reveal 3 or 4 of them anywhere on the reels to trigger the feature. If you reveal 3 you will be awarded 8 Free Spins, whilst 4 will get you 16 Free Spins.
Free Spins – If you trigger the Free Spins feature you will be given 8 or 16 Free Spins, during which the middle reel is stacked. There are 243 win ways available during the feature.
The Reel Split – This feature is only available during the base game. It is triggered at random but only once you have revealed a combination involving 4 or more symbols in a row. If the feature is awarded you will be given a re-spin. During the re-spin an additional reel is added between the 2nd and 3rd reels. It will only be the additional reel that will spin again, with all other symbols being locked in place. When this feature is active the win ways will increase from 81 to 243.
Shogun of Time is a fantastic looking game that is set in a futuristic world where a female shogun travels through time. This combination of the old and new means that you get the best of both worlds, with symbols you could associate with traditional Japan thrown in with a futuristic background where machines can teleport you to a different time. The game has some interesting features, the additional reel being the most exciting of them all, but I don’t think it would be too much for us to ask for a little bit more. You get free spins and you get wilds on top of the additional reel feature but this game is crying out for a bonus game to add some icing to the cake. The house edge is reasonable but far from offering excellent value for money.
