Released on 25th October 2018, Yamato is a 5 x 3 reel format slot from KA Gaming that has a medium variance. The slot game offers 25 fixed paylines, scatter symbols, and a fortune wheel. The game has a wild, and the slot’s RTP is 95.94%. The game has a space themed vibe about it and the symbols reflect the Space Battleship Yamato title.

Yamato should not be confused with the character in the popular anime called Naruto. This game was based on the Japanese Yamato warship used in the Second World War. The ship countered American naval fleet and fired its guns for the first time in the Battle of Leyte Gulf in the Philippines.


The reel set is a common 5×3 grid. Due to the game’s inspiration, you will be spinning symbols of captains and other ship officers. The designers, however, took the game’s origin into the future. The characters here are cartoon style with extravagant uniforms, and there is also an Android reminiscent of R2D2 from Star Wars.

The high-value symbols are:

  • Captain Yamato
  • Admiral 1
  • Lady Admiral
  • Male Officer
  • Lady Officer
  • Bald Guy
  • Android
  • Bald Guy

Apart from these, there are five low-value symbols from 10 to A. These symbols pay anywhere from $25 to $500 at the highest bet of $125.


The paytable below shows the prizes for the high-value symbols at the maximum bet.

Number of Appearance in a Pay Line SYMBOLS
Captain Yamato Admiral 1 Lady Admiral Male Officer Lady Officer Bald Guy Android Bald Guy
5 15,000 7,500 5,000 4,000 2,500 2,000 1,000 750
4 5,000 1,500 1,000 1,000 750 500 300 300
3 1,000 300 250 250 150 150 150 100

All prizes in the game are shown in currency. They change as you adjust your bet sizes. To win, what you need is a combo of three same symbols. They must be positioned on specific slots as shown in the payline menu.

Also, the symbols must be on separate yet adjacent reels, and must start from the leftmost one. The slot only pays from left to right, and all combos made that do not meet these conditions do not win a prize.


The slot offers players free games and wild, plus a wheel of fortune.

  • Wild – the wild is the battleship. It substitutes for all symbols to make a winning combo in case you are missing one. It does not pay cash and it has no multiplier values if used as a substitute. The wild cannot substitute for the scatter symbol.
  • Scatter – the scatter symbol is a futuristic rocket ship that fires what looks like a laser. It triggers the Wheel of Fortune, provided that you land at least three of it anywhere in the grid. The scatter does not pay money.
  • Wheel of Fortune – once you trigger three scatters, the Wheel of Fortune will show up on the slot game. Here, you can win free spins, a jackpot, or free cash prizes. If you won free spins, you cannot re-trigger free spins during the bonus round.

NB: The jackpot prize is not disclosed, and all free spins come with multiplier values. The lowest amount of free spins you can win is 5 free spins with a multiplier value of 5x. The highest is 50 free spins with a multiplier value of 2x.

  • Cannon – a cannon will randomly fire on the reel. If this happens, you will receive a random multiplier value that will be applied to your line wins.


We will rate this pokies game with 7 out of 10 points. It is easy to play and it packs a lot of bonuses. The only thing that the game developer that should have added is a cash prize for the wild, and this would have been a better slot.
