Our Verdict:

The Shogun of Time slot sees Microgaming and Just for the Win join forces to bring us a futuristic oriental title which packs a punch with its multiple bonus features.

For as little as 10p per spin, you can take advantage of 243 ways-to-win, free spins, and a Reel Splitter Feature which awards re-spins following every four-of-a-kind winning combination as well adding an additional reel to the playing area.

The game also boasts stacked wild reels for extra winning potential.


Shogun of Time features time-travelling Japanese female warrior-rulers and brightly-coloured neon graphics that depict a futuristic Japanese city with falling snow. Unusually, the game uses only four reels in the base game, but still gives you eighty-one way to create winning combinations, but as you'll soon discover, the reel set becomes enhanced through one of the special features.

The paytable symbols include coral-pink lotus blossoms, the Shogun of Time game logo, silver coins, body armour, a female, helmets, oriental fans, masks, and playing card symbols.

The game controls for Shogun of Time are located to the right of the reel set, and they allow you to look at the prizes that are up for grabs through the paytable, read the rules, change your stake size, enable auto-play, turn the sounds on or off, and spin the reels.

Wild Symbol:

The woman represents the wild symbol in the Shogun of Time slot, and it can award more cash than any other symbol in the game. When it can help to create or enhance a win, it replaces any symbol other than the scatter.

Bonus Features:

What makes the Shogun of Time slot so unique is that there's a Reel Splitter Re-Spin Feature which gets triggered every time that a four-of-a-kind winning combo is created. It causes an extra reel to be added to the centre of the playing area to give you five reels in total. Plus, thanks to the additional reel, the number of ways to win is increased from 81 to 243.

Once the Reel Splitter Re-Spin Feature is activated, Reels 1, 2, 4, and 5 are locked in place while the newly-added reel (N.B., Reel 3) re-spins to make it possible to either improve the existing four-of-a-kind winning combination or create another win.

The Shogun of Time slot game also has a Free Spins Bonus which is triggered when three or four scatters appear anywhere in view. Three scatters give you eight free games while four scatters grant you sixteen. While the Free Spins Bonus is active, Reel 3 acts as a fully wild reel, and with each free spin, there's the potential to win 2,717 times your total bet or higher!
