Eyecon’s 5 Ninjas is one of the most cartoony takes on the ninja-themed slot genre there is. This game has a friendly design to it, with bright and comical imagery spread across its reels. The game is affordable for all, has an average RTP rate and a grand non-progressive jackpot to offer players.
5 Ninjas may only feature 25 pay lines spread over its five reels, but they can all be altered as you see fit. This makes the Eyecon slot ideal for those players operating on tight budgets, as it allows them to wager as little as 1p per line per spin. Of course, you’ll have more luck playing with all 25 lines active. A maximum stake with all pay lines in play will only set you back just £12.50 a game. Players should note that the non-progressive jackpot offers great value for money, with top prizes capped at 5,000 coins. This prize is paid out only if players land 5 of the samurai/katana symbols on a line. The next best paying icon in this slot are the daggers, at 1,000 coins. 5 Ninjas decent return to player rate is set to 95.2%, which is smack bang at the level we would expect to find for any video slot.
Wilds appear as primitive hand grenades. These ruby red icons can only appear on the second and fourth reels, which is a touch disappointing, to say the least. On the upside, they can replace all others save for scatter icons and can double the value of any winning combos in which they appear.
Scatter icons show up as lucky coins. These symbols can appear on all the slot’s reels, but you will only need them to appear on three to trigger a free spin bonus.
A randomly triggered click and win feature is also present in the base game. It can see players select from various items to potentially win an instant cash prize worth up to 100x a bet.
Players may also wish to keep a lookout for the element symbols. These five symbols can light up element icons above the reels for five spins. If all five are lit during that period, a secondary bonus is triggered.
Once players have triggered the free game feature, they will start with ten spins. During the bonus, any wins which occur are tripled, and enemy icons replace coin symbols. Beat the enemies, and you can win up to 150 extra free games.
The secondary bonus involves players choosing from 5 doors to find ninjas and win cash prizes worth up to 200x your bet. If a guard appears, the bonus round ends.
Packed with enough decent features to impress (not to mention a gamble bonus if players like that sort of thing), 5 Ninjas has quite a bit to offer low-rolling players. There are other ninja-themed slots out there on the net, but this is one of the better and cheaper ones you can play.
