ABOUT NINJA WAYS
Red Tiger Gaming is a standout studio in 2018 with new releases like the high risk Laser Fruit and the classic fruit machine Jester Spins. Meanwhile, news of their latest Megaways™ engine licensing arrangement with BTG can only promise more of the same!
Ninja Ways is Red Tiger’s contribution to one of our favourite slot families, with 4,096 ways to win! So buckle in for more high variance shenanigans.
But can they compete with Pink Elephants or Raging Rhino? Well, Ninja Ways isn’t as volatile as previous games, but it does have some great wild multiplier modifiers, some clever random ninja elements, and a 10,000x top payoff.
And it’s all wrapped up in stunning Oriental art. Onward!
Setup of Ninja Ways
Red Tiger’s October 2018 release has 6 reels and 4 rows, with 4,096 ways to win.
The reels feature a wonderfully painted nighttime Oriental town with glowing pagodas and a dark night sky. It looks fantastic, especially with the ‘win up to 10,000x’ banner above the reels!
Game Symbols Ninja
The reel symbols are all in Chinese design. These are the cards from 10 to Ace. These include ninja weaponry (a throwing star and chains) and letters. A total of six ‘N’ symbols on adjacent reels on the same spin pays out 8x.
In addition, keep an eye out for the Ninja Wild, which can make a winning line by replacing all other symbols except the scatter.
Ninja Ways Pros
Three random features appear in both the regular game and the bonus round. These are:
- Ninja Door Feature – The Ninja appears, followed by a mystery door. It will display a 2×2, 3×3, or 4×4 big symbol. This could lead to more wins.
- Ninja Wilds Feature – The Ninja appears and throws extra Multiplier Wilds onto the reels, multiplying wins up to 8x.
- Ninja Ways Feature – The Ninja returns to the reels, hopping from one to another, creating extra wins.
In Ninja Ways, five or more scatters on adjacent reels trigger the Free Spins phase. The quantity of free spins is determined by the scatters that initiated the round.
Excitingly, you are GUARANTEED at least one base game feature per play in the free spins round. Not bad for a slot with a high variance and potential for 8x multiplier WILDS on EVERY spin!
Ninja Ways is a huge milestone for Red Tiger. The artwork is as good as ever, and the gameplay is fantastic. This medium-high variance slot has regular base game features that keep the excitement going even when you’re waiting for the free spins round and a big win.
Overall, a great slot and one of the best of the season.
