Design and Symbols
Ninja Ways design stays true to the theme. The game board appears as the shop front of a traditional Japanese style building with red hanging lanterns either side. Dangerous looking Ninja weapons lie casually on the floor in front of the building. The game is set at night time and in the distance, the streets are lined with multi-storey Japanese buildings. An atmospheric classic oriental soundtrack accompanies the play.
Low-value symbols are 10-A royal card values drawn in a Japanese style. High-value symbols are represented by nunchucks, Ninja throwing stars, a sai melle dagger, and the Ninja Ways logo. The logo is the highest value with 6 of a kind awarding 8x the bet size. A manga cartoon Ninja is the wild and finally, the scatter is a gold and black symbol with crossed swords at the bottom.
The base game has three randomly triggered base game modifiers. These modifiers also play a significant role in the bonus round which is a scatter activated free spin feature.
Those familiar with Red Tiger Gaming slots will be familiar with their tendency to add randomly activated base game modifiers, and Ninja Ways is no exception. During any spin, the reels can turn dark, the lanterns flash, and the Ninja can appear from the left and activate one of the following modifiers on the reels:
- Ninja Ways – The Ninja shoots across the reels, leaving random streaks of identical symbols in his path
- Ninja Door - A mystery door appears to reveal a MEGA symbol covering either 2x2, 3x3, or 4x4 regular symbol spaces.
- Ninja Wilds - The Ninja leaps across the reels, leaving multiplier wilds as high as 8x in his wake
Ninja Ways Free Spins
Free spins are triggered by landing 5 or more scatters on adjacent rows from the far left reel. Once triggered each landed scatter symbol will reveal a number of spins. The numbers are combined to give a total number of free spins for the bonus round. Any further scatter symbols landed during the bonus round will reveal a number of spins which will be added to the total. The reel modifiers play a big role during the free spins round and can appear individually or all together during any given free spin.
