ALL ABOUT NINJA WAYS SLOT
Red Tiger Gaming are a stand-out studio for 2018 – they’ve gone from also-ran to pace setter with some excellent new titles including the mega high variance slot, Laser Fruit, and the classic-fruity style Jester Spins. Meanwhile, news of their recent deal with BTG to license the Megaways™ engine can only mean more of the same coming our way!
And here, in Ninja Ways, we have Red Tiger’s contribution to one of our favourite family of slots – 4,096 ways to win! That means saddle up and get ready for more high variance shenanigans.
But can these guys match the might of slots like Pink Elephants or Raging Rhino? Well, Ninja Ways is perhaps a little less volatile than those games, but it does have some excellent wild multiplier modifiers, a couple of super-smart random ninja features, AND a top payout of 10,000x which is not to be sniffed at.
And all that wrapped up in awesome-looking Oriental artwork. Game on!
Ninja Ways Game Set Up
Red Tiger’s October 2018 release is a 6 reel and four row game with 4,096 ways to win – that means paylines every which way from left to right and right to left.
The background to the reels is a beautifully drawn Oriental town at night, with brightly-lit pagoda buildings under an ominous night sky. It looks great and, of course, very enticing with the ‘win up to 10,000x’ header appearing above the reel set!
Ninja Ways Game Symbols
The reel symbols are all drawn in Chinese style illustrations. The lower value symbols are the cards, 10 through to Ace. There are also four premium symbols, including ninja weapons – a throwing star and chains – and letters. The ‘N’ is the highest value symbol, paying out 8x for six landing on adjacent reels on the same spin.
Look out as well for the Ninja Wild that replaces all others except the scatter to form a win line, and the scatter itself which is needed to trigger the free spins round.
Ninja Ways Features
There are three features that occur at random during both the base game and the bonus round. They are as follows:
Ninja Door Feature – The Ninja appears and a mystery door appears on the reels. It will open to reveal a giant symbol of either 2×2, 3×3 or 4×4. This potentially creates more wins.
Ninja Wilds Feature – The Ninja arrives on the scene to throw extra Multiplier Wilds onto the reels with up to 8x applied to your wins.
Ninja Ways Feature – The Ninja hits the reels again, jumping from one to another and leaving matching symbols in his wake, creating more wins.
Free Spins Round
The Free Spins round in Ninja Ways is triggered by landing five or more of the scatters on adjacent reels. The number of free spins is random, decided by the number revealed by each of the scatters that triggered the round.
The exciting part if that your base game features are GUARANTEED to land in the free spins round – at least one per spin. That means you could have 8x multiplier WILDS on EVERY spin – though don’t hold your breathe, this one has high variance and won’t give up its riches easily!
THE SLOT BUZZ VERDICT
Ninja Ways is another big step forward for Red Tiger Gaming. The artwork, as always is superb, and here is mixed with awesome gameplay. This slot offers huge win potential on a medium-high variance model with regular base game features keeping the action ticking over even during relatively dry spells whilst you wait to hit the free spins round and a big win moment.
All round – very impressive and one of the stand-out slots of autumn 2018.
