Satsumo’s Revenge is an online slot game by software manufacturer Playtech, and if you’ve never seen slot games merge different genres, then wait until you see this. Satsumo’s Revenge blends your classic fruit symbols with an Asian martial arts theme and does so masterfully. We’ll start by complimenting the amazing quality visuals; the graphics are 3D and feature some really neat animated sequences. You will find yourself in a Japanese Washitsu with a grandmaster standing right beside the reels. Martial arts fans will be especially pleased to know that this theme is constantly present throughout gameplay and it has even armed some of the traditional fruit symbols with katanas. By the way, the fruits here include angry-looking limes, strawberries, cherries, oranges, plums, and even blueberries.
This leads us to the game’s layout, which is less extraordinary than everything else we’ve mentioned so far. Namely, it boasts a regular 5 reel by 3 row grid and comes with a total of 25 paylines. The paylines are fixed, too, so there will be no meddling or adjusting them. Hence, the minimum bet in this title is some 25p per single spin and the maximum bet leaves room for anyone with deeper pockets with a maximum of £125 per spin.
You will notice that there are actually 2 different Wild symbols in Satsumo’s Revenge. One acts as a regular Wild, and you can see it just about anywhere on the screen. It will help you complete winning combos by substituting for other symbols. However, it will not be able to replace the Scatters and neither does it offer any payouts of its own.
The second Wild is the Shuriken Wild symbol which is only present on reel 5. Just like the regular Wild, this one will also be able to substitute for other symbols and thus help boost your winnings. But what’s more, it will also be able to trigger its very own special feature; whenever the Shuriken Wild lands on the reels you will see the grandmaster skillfully toss shurikens onto the reels.
This will result in one or more reels randomly turning fully Wild. In addition to that, the grandmaster can also add win multipliers.
The only feature that can surpass the excitement of the previous one is the Fighting Freespins Bonus. Look out for the armed Scatter symbols appearing only on reels 1 and 5. You will need to land both of these bad boys at the same time in order to trigger the feature, and once that happens you will have to select one of the two fighters to be your champion.
Both will then fight each other in a duel of rock-paper-scissors, whereas each of them will have 5 lives. If you win, you receive 1 freespin with a Sticky Wild; if there’s a draw then nobody loses a life and you gain an extra freespin; if you lose then you will lose one of your lives. This duel ends as soon as one of the fighters has lost all their lives, and after that you finally get to play your freespins.
Satsumo’s Revenge is a wonderful creation from Playtech that offers both fantastic entertainment as well as great winning opportunities. In addition, it’s perfectly balanced and medium variance, so you can expect decent size wins at even intervals.
