Bushido Ways Introduction 

Nolimit City's next destination for its xNudge mechanic is Japan - feudal Japan to be precise, as the company presents Bushido Ways. This slot is set in what is definitely the country's most tumultuous time period, and comes complete with a flaming battlefield as a backdrop for its 5 reels and 4 rows. The xNudge feature comes into play on reel 3, which houses a stacked Geisha wild. This symbol will always nudge to fully occupy the reel whenever partially landed, and each nudge increases the win multiplier by +1. The Japanese warriors of this period were famed for their swordsmanship, which is why we also have regular, single position wilds that get sliced whenever landed on reels 3, 4 and 5. Samurai helmet scatters bring the free spins whenever 3 or more are on the reels, and this round will change into Geisha Spins whenever triggered when a Geisha wild lands on the reels! Now let us take a closer look at Bushido Ways and find out what its deal is!

Bushido is the Japanese "way of the warrior," a moral code covering the attitudes, behaviour and lifestyle of the samurai. It is a lot like the European idea of chivalry, and has evolved in multiple ways throughout history. It is said to have first developed during the Edo period (1603-1868), but was based on earlier ethical codes that were created as the warrior caste rose to power during the Heian period (794-1185) as well as the establishment of the first shogunate in the Kamakura period (1185-1333). 

Bushido Ways Game Features

Bushido Ways is a 5-reel, 4-row slot with a total of 1,024 paylines formed by landing 3 or more matching symbols on adjacent reels. Paylines always start from reel 1, moving from left to right. Forming these paylines is a selection of 8 symbols. There are 3 high pays, warriors in red, blue and green that appear stacked 4 symbols tall, as well as the traditional A, K, Q, J and 10 card royal low pays. Reel 3 holds the Geisha wild, who also appears stacked 4 symbols tall. If landed partially the xNudge feature kicks in, nudging her until she is fully visible. Each nudge increases the round multiplier by +1. 

Single position wilds appear on reels 2, 3, 4, and 5. Like the Geisha wild these can substitute for all symbols except the scatter. In addition, a wild gets sliced into 2 on reel 3, into 3 on reel 4 and into 4 on reel 5. As for the scatter, this is the samurai helmet. If this lands together with any of the stacked high paying samurai symbols than these will transform into the highest paying symbol present on the reels. In addition, all lower-value samurai symbols transform into the best paying symbol present on the reels. In addition, landing 3 scatters earns you the free spins, which take a different form if the scatters are landed together with a Geisha wild. 

Bushido Ways Free Spins and Bonuses 

Landing 3 scatters earns you 8 Shogun Spins, with an additional spin awarded for every additional scatter landed. This round guarantees at least one wild landing on reels 2, 3, 4 or 5 on each spin. During this round, wilds copy themselves downwards to the bottom row before getting sliced. Landing a Geisha Wild on reel 3 during the Shogun Spins, on the other hand, brings an upgrade to Geisha Spins, with the number of extra Geisha Spins equal to the multiplier achieved. 

Geisha Spins can also be triggered by landing 3 scatters together with a Geisha Wild during a regular spin. This consists of 8 spins where the Geisha wild sticks to reel 3 for the duration. She also holds a multiplier equal the number of nudges she did to appear in full on the reel. Like the Shogun Spins, this round guarantees at least 1 wild landing on reels, 2, 4 or 5, while landing a scatter earns you +1 Geisha Spin. 

Where available, you can also pay for a round of free spins, with the Shogun Spins costing you 75x the bet and the Geisha Spins 700x. Nolimit City adds the maximum win that can be made during either Shogun or Geisha Spins can reach up to 30,000x the bet. If this total payout is achieved, then the round ends before the prize is awarded. 

Bushido Ways Payouts 

The red samurai is the highest paying symbol, being worth up to 2x the bet for a full payline. The blue samurai follows at up to 1.5x the bet, while the green samurai can earn you up to 1x. The A is worth up to 0.75x the stake, the K 0.65x and the Q, J and 10 0.5x. 

Bushido Ways Graphics and Sound

Bushido Ways is set on a dramatic view of a burning battlefield complete with a tattered banner flapping in the wind. The slot itself is simply designed in wood. Each side holds a banner, one telling the current amount of paylines and the other how many winning combinations you managed to get in the current spin. Going back to the reels, the low pays are held in simple wooden tags, while the high pays are paintings of the various warrior characters. It's perhaps simple, but still effectively evokes the Japanese history the game is based on.

Bushido Ways Conclusion

After all this remains a Nolimit City title, and that means a great looking slot with interesting bonus features leading to plenty of excitement.
