No self-respecting site called samurai-warriors.com would be complete without a review of Samurai themed slots. I’ve searched, played, critiqued and now reviewed some of the finest ancient Japanese martials arts online casino slots available. First up its on of the best video slots from Playtech – Silent Samurai slot.
Silent Samurai Slot Review
Silent Samurai theme is kick ass! The Japanese martial arts idea is interesting and will prove engaging. Some may see the visuals a little dated, others, like me, find the vintage feel interesting. The audio, as you’d expect, is oriental themed music. It can get a little tedious and I turned it off within a few minutes.

Silent Samurai Symbols
The reel symbols are: dragons, geisha’s, samurai’s, throwing stars and yen coins, and A, Q, K, J, 10 and 9 symbols. These latter symbols are styled to match the Japanese Samurai theme but they seem out of place. Can we do away with the A, Q, K, J, 10 and 9? Please…
Geishas equals multiplier! Three Geishas will yield 5x, four Geishas, 25x and five Geisha symbols will yield an incredible 100x multiplier. Perhaps they should have called this game Silent Geisha!
The Silent Samurai symbol equates to bonuses. The symbol can come out on reels 1 and 5. Spinning the silent samurai will reward players with free spins, during which all wins have the potential to be multiplied. You instantly win 5 x your bet plus additional free spins. The number of free spins depends how many of the 20 attacking ninja soldiers you manage to take out with the hira shuriken (ninja stars). You are rewarded with up to 27 free spins and a multiplier up to 8x. If you manage to hit the special ninja you will take out 3 ninjas at once. Sounds easy? Ha! Some of these Ninajs are fast enough to dodge your best efforts and end your bonus game. Be prepared! I played the game for a few hours and did not once get to fight ninjas. That was disappointing.
Silent Samurai Jackpot
The golden dragon wild is the highest valued symbol of Silent Samurai. It will pay you up to 5000 coins. It effectively acts as a wild card. For example, if you spin 3 dragons and 2 matching symbols you’ll win. You will need at least four matching symbols to win.
Gamble button appears on a winning spin – im just not sure which wining spin because sometimes it was possible and other times not. You can gamble your winnings or gamble less. It’s a very simple chose the black or red card.
Silent Samurai Slot
General concesus puts the game as a 3.5 out 5. Personally I think it s a little rough. The theme and graphics, with the sound turned down, are worthy of at least a 4. If I played the bonus game, killing ninjas with a samurai star, it may have earnt more. Perhaps I just need to keep playing it?
