Play’n GO, a popular iGaming technology company, has announced an action-packed slot machine, Ronin’s Honor. The game’s storyline centers around The Ronin, a shrewd swordswoman skilled in both ninja and samurai techniques in his duel with the ruthless ninja Hannya. Fans of Play’n GO might find some similarities in Ronin’s Honor and the paranormal Tale of Kyubiko (2022), both drawing inspiration from traditional samurai films.
The action happens on 5 reels and 3 rows with up to 3 bet lines. It’s a highly volatile slot machine, although the 96.22% RTP (return to player) should be friendly to your bankroll. And to make all the action worthwhile, there is a 30,000x prize to fight for.
In this live-or-die action, players only need to match at least three symbols to win a payout. You’ll find the J-A card royals on the reels, rewarding you with 0.2x to 0.8x the stake. The samurai’s dangerous weapons, including the sword, dagger, shuriken, and spike club, represent premium symbols. These symbols can reward players up to 10x the stake for five of a kind.
Meantime, the Mystery Splitting symbols are the stars of the show, which can be stacked or split based on how they appear. These symbols can generate many Dynamic Payways by linking the gameplay’s sword with the narrative of the whole story.
The action even goes a notch higher after landing at least three scatter symbols, triggering the Battle Free Spins feature. Besides rewarding gamers with bonus spins, collecting 2, 3, 4, or 5 scatters will reward you with 0.2x, 1x, 4x, or 8x the stake. When the feature starts, you’ll see a player shaped like Ronin on the left side of the reels with three lives. Hannya, Ronin’s adversary, stands to the left and has three lives as well.
If Hannya loses all her lives, the player receives a spin with a guaranteed win. However, players will lose a life if no Wilds split, heightening the samurai conflict. Remember, the Battling Free Spins are uncapped, meaning the action may never stop any time soon.
Commenting on the game, Play’n GO’s Head of Game Retention, George Olekszy said: “Ronin’s Honour is pure fun. Although this slot is for everyone, enthusiasts will feel right at home with this title. The battle mechanics and mystery symbols really elevate this slot, and we couldn’t be prouder. The way Ronin’s Honour blends the narrative and features is seamless.”
Ronin’s Honor joins other action-themed slot machines from the multi-award-winning developer, including Game of Gladiators: Uprising (2023), Wild Trigger (2022), and Gunslinger Reloaded (2018).
