Katana brings you one of the most visually stunning slots that we have seen in a long time. Based on the Japanese Samurai, it brings you a level of detail that is rarely seen in online gaming. Whilst style was obviously at the forefront of their thoughts, we will be looking to see if the substance is there to back up what could be described as a bit of a masterpiece of modern slot design.
What you get from Katana is a 5 reel 20-payline game that has become so synonymous with the modern-day slot. With that come features such as wilds, scatters and a bonus game, to add to the overall depth of the game.
Like a lot of slots, the game includes some pretty standard wilds that will substitute themselves into winning paylines to either add value or create other winning paylines. Unlike a lot of other slots, however, the wilds can also become expandable. These appear to be pretty random but can occupy the height of each reel, making them very lucrative.
The bonus round allows you top pick up 10 free spins when you manage to get three or more of the sword symbol anywhere on the reels. Once it is active, then you the game will automatically start and it will spin on repeat until your spins have been used up.
It’s worth noting that the game can re-trigger the free spins from inside the feature, and that the wilds (Shogun) will be expandable throughout. If the wilds do expand then they will hold for a certain period of time before then being removed. Once all of your spins have been used then you will be returned to the main game and your winnings added to your account.
We asked earlier in the review if Katana was just style over substance, and unfortunately, we came to the conclusion that it kind of was. The game never really gets going. It looks superb but the lack of bonus rounds really did make us feel as though there are so many more valuable slots that we could be investing our time and money into.
For the most part, Katana will tick boxes for a lot of players. The design is certainly there, but we cant help but feel that they were so close to becoming something really big here and have fallen just short of really challenging the bigger players in the industry.
