Microgaming Casinos Welcome New Shogun of Time Slot
One of the games previewed by Microgaming at this year’s ICE Totally Gaming in London is an interestingly themed slot, developed exclusively for the gaming giant by Just For The Win.
Titled Shogun of Time, this game combines the feudal past of Japan with its cyberpunk future, creating a dynamic and captivating slot.
Past and Future Collide into One
The latest addition to Microgaming’s offering of high-quality games, Shogun of Time brings a four-reel three-row layout, and with 81 ways to win instead of traditional paylines. In addition to its unusual theme, this release offers Wilds, Scatters, transformational Free Spins, and the Reel Split Re-spin feature, intended to help players increase their winnings.
Your quest for riches will begin in the futuristic city of Neo Tokyo, where you’ll be joined by a time-travelling shogun. You’ll be dazzled by the vibrant colours of the reels, which are populated by visually stunning symbols, such as cherry blossoms, samurai helmets, armour and old coins. During the Main Game, you’ll need at least three matching icons appearing from left to right to get a win.
Getting four matching symbols can lead to even bigger wins, thanks to the Reel Split Re-spin feature. Once this feature is activated, the time portal located at the base of the grid will be turned on and a new fifth reel will appear on the grid, offering an additional spin while other reels remain locked.
Landing three or four Free Spins symbols anywhere on the reels during the Main Game will trigger the game’s Free Spins round, taking players back in time, where immense riches await hidden. In addition to this, the game will once again change, awarding 8 or 16 spins (depending on the number of symbols used to trigger the feature) which will be played on five reels, with the number of ways to win increased to 243!
The Shogun of Time will appear on the centre reel as a Stacked Wild for the duration of the feature. His presence can result in staggering payouts.
A Great Addition to the Company’s Portfolio
Commenting on the launch of this game, David Reynolds Games Publisher at Microgaming said Shogun of Time presented a winning combination of exciting gameplay mechanics and futuristic atmosphere.
He praised Just For The Win for delivering another excellent title exclusive to Microgaming, complete with dazzling visuals and an atmospheric, ambient soundtrack, blending traditional Japanese music with pulsating electronica.
Reynolds pointed out the rich dynamic features added an extra dimension to the time-travelling slot, transforming the base game and ramping up potential rewards.
He added the game-changing Reel Split Re-spin gave players a great chance to make epic wins, while those chasing free spins would be treated to a trip to Japan’s past, seeing the game transform completely into a five-reel slot with an amazing 243 winning ways and a fixed wild reel.
Johan Persson CEO at Just For The Win stated his company was incredibly excited to introduce players to the realms of Japan’s past and future in Shogun of Time, their latest title developed exclusively for Microgaming, and added they couldn’t wait to see players leap into this new world, and experience a double life as a dazzling urbanite and a samurai.
Microgaming showcased a number of new games at ICE, including Village People and Banana Odyssey.
