This Japanese-themed slot, brought to you by NovomaticCasino.co.uk, has got to be one of the most beautifully designed slots ever made. The graphics are stunning and each of the symbols looks as if it’s been intricately painted by a master painter or written by a master calligrapher. Katana will appeal to anyone who finds ancient Japanese culture interesting and intoxicating and fans of other NovomaticCasino.co.uk slots, such as: Faust, Lucky Lady’s Charm, Book of Ra and Book of Ra Deluxe, will most definitely enjoy this game. Katana transports its players to ancient Japan, where there are geishas, samurai warriors and big wins for all!
The aim of this 5-reel, 20 payline slot, is to spin three or more matching symbols on an active payline, on consective reels, from left to right. All of the symbols are beautifully crafted and offer generous payouts. The lower paying symbols, card values from 10 – Ace, are written in a colourful, calligraphy-style font, and these pay up to 10x your bet. The other symbols all look as though they are paintings which have come straight out of an art museum! The shrine and temple pay up to 25x your bet; the warriors on horseback and the archers pay up to 30x your bet and the geisha pays up to x40 your bet! The shogun is the Wild symbol and he pays up to 50x your bet and he also can substitute for all symbols except the Scatter. The Scatter in Katana is the samurai sword resting on a stand, and this pays up to 200 times your bet!
In Katana, your bet is clearly displayed for you at the bottom of your screen, in the middle. Your balance is on the left and your last win amount is on the right. You can alter your bet amount at any time, by increasing or decreasing the number of lines you wish to bet on, as well as the amount you wish to bet on each line. You can check the paytable whenever you need to, except during autoplay, to see how much each symbol will pay according to your bet amount. Autoplay is a classic NovomaticCasino.co.uk feature and allows you to play the game without you having to lift a finger, as the reels spin themselves. Another classic feature that Katana has is the double-or-nothing gamble feature. With this, every time you get a win you’ll have the chance to double it. All you have to do is choose correctly the colour of the next card, which looks as though it’s been intricately carved out of wood!
The best things in Katana are free as well! Spinning three or more Scatter symbols in this game will trigger 10 free games, and in these free games is where the magic happens. Firstly, the evocative music in the background will make you feel as though you’re a samurai warrior going off to war and, secondly, the Wild shogun gains the ability to expand! Each time he falls as part of a winning combination, he grows to fill the entire reel and gives you more and more wins! You’ll be thrilled to hear that you can also win more of these lucrative free games during the free games so the wins can just keep on going!
