Developer Relax Gaming has announced its latest video slot, the Samurai-inspired Hazakura Ways.
As explained by the studio, Hazakura Ways whisks players to the colourful world of the Samurai, where plenty of wins and riches can be found. The game uses a 6×4 layout with 4,096 paylines and an RTP of 96.29%, and it has high volatility, which means it’s more likely to pay out large infrequent wins over regular small ones.
Hazakura Ways requires a bet of between £0.10 and £20 per spin, and symbols include a woman, an old samurai, a dagger, a katana, the traditional playing card suits, a lotus flower, a lantern, and more.
The Hazakura Ways slot comes with various special features, including Wild symbols that substitute for all symbols except the Scatter symbols. Meanwhile, landing Scatter symbols triggers the Free Spins mode; three Scatter symbols trigger 10 spins, four Scatter symbols trigger 15 spins, five Scatter symbols trigger 20 spins, and six Scatter symbols trigger 25 spins.
During the Free Spins feature, a special symbol is selected at the start, which expands downwards throughout the feature to fill the remaining reel area and payout. Landing three more Scatter symbols during the feature triggers more spins.
There’s also a Random feature, where a paying symbol is randomly selected at the start of a spin and expands downwards to fill the entire reel and trigger a payout.
Hazakura Ways also has a Mega Bet. When active, wild symbols expand during the Random and Free Spins features, and it increases the chance of triggering the two features too. It also adds 50% of the regular bet amount to the total bet winnings. Lastly, the game has a Buy feature, where you can purchase entry into the Free Spins mode.
Simon Hammon, the CPO at Relax Gaming, said in a statement: “This vibrant slot offers players unforgettable gameplay coupled with truly exhilarating bonus features and mechanics. We’re confident players will enjoy playing this title just as much as we enjoyed making it.”
The release of Hazakura Ways comes after Relax Gaming launched its Plunderland video slot and after the release of a slew of other games, including Santa’s Stack, Money Cart Bonus Reels, Cluster Tumble, Mega Mine Nudging Ways, and numerous other titles too.
In addition, Relax Gaming has been expanding its player reach worldwide by announcing agreements with NetBet, and has expanded its aggregator platform after partnering with developers like Silverback via GAN, Four Leaf Gaming, Booming Games, Spinmatic, and more.
