How to play

Yggdrasil Gaming has come up with what can arguably be described as one of the best wrestling-themed slots going around on the net. Yokozuna Clash slot doesn’t just present a more likeable, fun and exciting interface for this genre of slot; it also introduces players to all manner of special features they simply aren’t likely to get from other online slots here at goldrush.

The Yggdrasil developed game is very similar in style to Sahara Nights and Wild Robo Factory but takes place on a set of five reels located above a sumo ring. There are three rows of symbols to a reel within Yokozuna Clash slot, and those symbols include playing card suit icons, as well as mythical Asian creatures.

Below the reels are the sumos themselves, and as you’ll see, they have a significant role to play. Across the reels are 243 paylines, with stakes rising from 10p a turn up to £125 a game. Prizes are petite, but the slot does have an RTP rate of 96.3%.

Special Features

Creativity via special features is at the heart of Yokozuna Clash slot. Wild symbols are easy to spot (they spell out “wild”) and can substitute for all standard paying icons. Similarly, scatter icons spell out “scatter”. Wilds and scatters are coloured gold and red, respectively. Scatters will trigger a free game bonus when they appear on the first and fifth reels at once. 

The sumos which appear below the Yokozuna Clash slot reels can trigger base game modifiers and in-game bonuses. These are also available in the free spin round. Each sumo is coloured, and they have their own goodies. Riki can add two or three wilds to the reels of the base game and free spin round, respectively.

Haru can add 2x-3x multipliers in the base game to wins, and 2x-4x multiplier in the feature. Meanwhile, O’ Connor and Daisuke only affect the free spin bonus, where they move along a power meter - more on that in a second. Lastly, Yokozuna only appears in the final battle, and add up to four wilds, 2x-4x multipliers and move the power meter.

Free Spins and Bonus Features 

Once the sumo free spins round has been triggered in Yokozuna Clash slot, a fighter and opponents will appear in the ring. Players can move a power meter right by landing winning combos in the free spin bonus. It will move left following a loss.

The objective is to get it all the way to the right, and thus defeat your opponent. If the meter goes all the way to the left, you will lose, and the free spin bonus ends. Once one enemy has been defeated in Yokozuna Clash slot, the next in line comes into play.

Make it to the final round, and you’ll face Yokozuna for the biggest prizes in the game. During these free spin fights, a Sumo Clash feature can dish out winning icons to other reel spots when a five-of-a-kind combo is landed. 

Fun Facts

Yokozuna Clash slot is heaps of fun, there's no doubt about it - but exactly who was the professional sumo wrestler?

The wrestler Yokozuna liked to maintain a certain mystic. He often claimed that he was born in Polynesia. Facts tell us that this powerhouse of a man was born in San Francisco in 1966. He did, however, go on to become a sumo wrestler but he never competed in what the Japanese call sumotori.

He was a real heavyweight of a man weighing in at 267 kilos. That is a lot of weight even for a man who is 6 ft and 4 inches.

Despite not being a professional sumo wrestler, he did go on to become one of the most popular wrestlers on the WWF.

During his well-managed career, he fought against other WWF wrestlers such as Jim Duggan who was better known as "Hack Saw".

He died while on tour in the UK. At the time he weighed a staggering 260 kilos and it is thought that his body could not cope with his enormous weight any more.

Summary

There is no shortage of action to be had in Yggdrasil’s Yokozuna Clash slot. So much originality is on show with the slot’s unique features that this is a game which is not to be missed. The slot has set the benchmark high for other sumo and wrestling-themed slots to follow.
