Fortunately, we now have the opportunity to travel back to this great time, a time that resulted in the rise of the samurai…

What is the max win in the slot Rise of Samurai Megaways?
You can win up to 5000X the bet.
What features are in the slot Rise of Samurai Megaways?
The features are Wild Symbol, Tumble, Free Spins and Ante Bet.
The game's wild symbol helps to create more winning combinations by substituting for other symbols. The only symbol it doesn’t substitute for is the scatter symbol. In addition, all winnings that have a wild symbol involved will have their winnings multiplied by 2X. This symbol can only land on reels 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6.
When you spin the reels and create a winning combination, the Tumble feature is activated. Then all the symbols that were part of the winning combination will disappear from the reels and then new symbols will fall down to cover the empty positions. This continues as long as new winning combinations are created.
If you land 3 or more scatter symbols, the Free Spins feature is activated. Depending on whether you landed 3, 4, 5 or 6 scatter symbols, you will receive a direct win of 5X, 10X, 20X and 100X respectively.
Before this feature starts, you will get a spin on a wheel that gives both free spins and a win multiplier. You can get between 5 to 20 free spins and 2X to 25X as a win multiplier. You can also retrigger this wheel again during this feature, where you once again can take part in a spin whose value will be added to your current one.
You can activate the Ante Bet feature which will double your chances of activating the Free Spins feature, as more scatter symbols land on the reels. It costs 25% extra of your current bet size and the RTP is almost the same at 95.69%.
There is something very fascinating and exciting about samurai, where even a certain mystery accompanies and permeates this slot. Pragmatic Play is very skilled at moving between different themes, where one is usually not the least bit similar to the other, like the previous Chicken Drop. But even if their themes are different, the concept is usually the same with 5000X max win and a very high volatility that can suddenly generate the bigger wins. Where you really gotta risk it to get the biscuit. The game's wild symbol not only helps to create more winning combinations, but in case of wins, they are also multiplied by 2X.
The really big wins can be picked up within the Free Spins feature, where you can also activate the Ante Bet to increase the chances of activating it at a 25% extra cost. Once you have activated it, you get to take part in a spin on the wheel that gives between 5 to 20 free spins and a win multiplier of between 2X to 25X the bet. This happens completely randomly, but if you manage to get the higher multiplier, it can go very fast for the giant wins to land. It's a fairly simple gameplay when it comes to the features, where nothing is particularly new or groundbreaking, but its theme is very elegantly intertwined with these and the spins become very entertaining. This game provider usually has a high RTP on their slots, but this time they go below the 96% limit, to 95.70%, which can be considered a bit low. Otherwise, it is a rewarding playing time that awaits, where with the help of the Megaways mechanic you can get up to incredible 200704 ways to win.
Rise of Samurai Megaways is a slot that takes us back to the heyday of the Japanese samurai, where we can take part in a wonderful mix with many free spins and high win multipliers.
