KA Gaming released Samurai Way on 22nd November 2016. It is a 5 x 3 reel slot with a medium variance. With an RTP of 95.98%, players can take advantage of its generous paylines of 243 in total, plus cool features like wild, scatter, and a bonus are in play.

The Samurai is a highly respected warrior in feudal Japan, which was abolished in the 1800s when Japan became a modern and westernized country. As opposed to what is commonly shown in movies, the Samurai is not always a person in full military armor.

What many people often confuse is the samurai and the katana—the sword is the katana, and the person who wields it is called a samurai.


The reel is a regular 5×3 grid, but all the symbols are cropped inside a circular pattern. This slot game has no low-value symbols like normal games.

Here are the high-value symbols:

  • Samurai Warrior 1
  • Samurai Warrior 2
  • Temple
  • Mountain
  • Volcano

The other five symbols are:

  • Shield 1
  • Shield 2
  • Samurai helmet
  • Ship Castle

These “low-value” symbols pay between $25 and $750 at the highest bet of $150.


Here are the top five symbols and their pays.

Number of Appearance in a Pay Line SYMBOLS
Samurai 1 Samurai 2 Temple Mountain Volcano
5 5,000 5,000 4,000 1,500 750
4 500 500 500 250 150
3 250 175 150 100 50

All of these are currency values. The prizes will change as you increase and decrease your bet. The betting window is between $0.30 and $150. Despite the slot game having 243 paylines, it charges only 30 credits per round.


Apart from the base game and the paylines, players can augment the odds with the wild and scatter symbols. There is also a bonus round which we will discuss further.

  • Wild – the wild in the game is the golden triple clover leaf. It substitutes for any missing symbol so you can form a winning combo. The wild cannot substitute for the scatter, and it awards random multipliers if it is used in the free spins bonus round.
  • Scatter – this is the ninja, and it awards free games. The number of free spins depends on your choice. You can also win guaranteed cash. You have to land at least three scatter symbols to get the free games.

The cash prizes for the scatter are:

  • 5x – $7,500
  • 4x – $1,500
  • 3x – $750
  • Bonus – the bonus symbol is the female samurai. You have to land three of this symbol on adjacent reels, and the combo must start from the first reel to activate the bonus round. The bonus round is called the archery bonus. Apart from the bonus round, you will win cash as shown below:
  • 5x – $1,000
  • 4x – $175
  • 3x – $75

If you manage to land the bonus symbol on reels 1 and 5, you will win a random multiplier between 2x and 50x against your total bet.

  • Free Games – after landing three scatters you can choose your free spins bonus. Here are the choices:
  • 10 free games with multipliers between 10x and 30x
  • 13 free games with multipliers between 8x and 15x
  • 15 free games with multipliers between 5x and 10x
  • 20 free games with multipliers between 3x and 8x
  • 25 free games with multipliers between 2x and 5x


This KA Gaming Japanese themed slot machine deserves 8.2 out of 10 points. The game is not complicated. It is packed with features that give players some good bang for their bucks, which you can rarely find in many slot machines today.
