Hanzo's Dojo

Hanzo's Dojo

Ready for another incredible video slot by the innovative team at Yggdrasil? Of course you are… so allow us to introduce you to Hanzo’s Dojo, a stunning Japanese warrior themed online and mobile slot. Set within a traditional and beautiful Far Eastern temple surrounding by the pretty pink pastels of cherry blossom trees, the game begins with an incredible introductory video featuring amazing graphics and an insight into Hanzo’s character, a fearless samurai. Join Hanzo and his brave warriors as the slot game commences, with an unusual real layout containing a standard 5x3 matrix at the bottom, but also including a “rooftop” slot; which is a separate 3-reel single line row above the reels. There are 25 fixed pay lines in Hanzo’s Dojo, and the opportunity to win over a massive 3000x your stake with the assistance of special awards from the rooftop slot game and a great free spins bonus feature.

Special Features

Enjoy stunning animations in play as you spin the reels of Hanzo’s Dojo and listen to the soothing soundtrack of traditional Japanese melody. Hanzo is the high paying symbol and interestingly, he appears within the rooftop slot only.  There are 4 additional warrior symbols; these are medium pay, while the coins are low value symbols.  There is a regular wild – an intricately designed warrior mask – which will substitute all regular symbols within the game. There is also an expanding wild which appears in the rooftop slot only; this can substitute Hanzo symbols also, and there is a free spins scatter symbol. The rooftop slot can also feature blank symbols.

You might be wondering about the relevance of the single row rooftop slot is at this stage. It can award 3 different prizes, depending on the symbols that land. If a wild lands in the rooftop, it will expand down to the standard 5x3 reel below, changing the current symbols to wilds and offering up an opportunity for further wins. The rooftop slot can also trigger the two bonus features within the game.

Bonus Features

If 3 Hanzo symbols land within the rooftop slot, Hanzo Spins are awarded. A randomly chosen symbol is locked within a 3x3 position on the reels during the 3 Hanzo Spins, resulting in a greater opportunity for prizes.

The rooftop slot can also assist in triggering Free Spins. Landing 3 free spins symbols triggers the bonus feature, with regular free spins symbols awarding 3 free spins each. If you land a free spins symbol in the rooftop, these award 4 free spins each and 1 booster. Boosters can include win both ways, a x2 multiplier, extra free spins, a wild 5th reel and more. During the free spins round, the centre reels will also spin the large 3x3 symbols. A powerful bonus feature if you are lucky enough to trigger it!

Why We Love Hanzo’s Dojo

This online casino game is incredibly well designed in terms of both the visual features and also gameplay. The two bonus features are unusual, exciting and not overly complex, while the additional rooftop slot certainly adds an interesting element to the game. Hanzo’s Dojo is another unique and brilliant game to add to an already excellent Yggdrasil collection.
