Shogun of Time Mobile Slots

This innovative slot, which takes its inspiration from both the world of the Oriental and science fiction movies to create a truly original theme, is the work of Just For The Win. Standard play happens on a narrow 4x3 layout of reels (although that can change in the bonus features), with 81 ways to win and 96.02% RTP. We’re happy to feature it as part of our library of great slots here at Amigo Slots, which also includes Starburst, Chilli Heat, Rainbow Riches and Fluffy Favourites.

There are many Mobile Slots out there which use an Oriental theme, most of which are steeped in the tradition and history of the Far East. Shogun of Time by Just For The Win is a little different to the rest of the pack. It uses the symbolism of Japan for inspiration, but it blends them with a futuristic sci-fi world to create something new and unique. If you’re going to play Shogun of Time, prepare for a slot gaming experience like no other.

Game Summary

The structure of Shogun of Time Is more than a little unusual. You’ll notice from looking at it that although there’s a ‘normal’ field of rows and symbols in view, there aren’t any visible dividers which separate those symbols into reels and rows. That’s because the slot doesn’t have a conventional payline structure. You can create a win any way you wish so long as the correct symbols line themselves up in order from left to right. That means that despite the (initially - we’ll come back to this later on) small playing area of only four reels and three rows, there are eighty-one different ways to win. That’s more than generous and goes some way to explaining the relatively high RT of 96.02%.

Graphically, the background of this slot is difficult to explain. There’s an ultra-modern cityscape in the background, which we seem to be viewed through a window. In the foreground, there are some flowers in glass tubes either side of the reels which act as framing, and what appears to be a ‘Star Trek’ style transporter on the floor which may be conjuring the symbols into life. It may be a science lab, a magician’s secret room or simply a home of the future. It’s up to you to decide!

Shogun of Time isn't a slot that tries to overwhelm you with too many symbols. All the complexity comes from the slot's bonus features; the base game is simple. For that reason, all you'll see on the reels are the standard 10 through to A taking up the lowest value spots, topped by a pile of silver coins, an Oriental fan, a warrior's armour, the mask of the slot's titular shogun, and the slot's logo.  

The mask serves as the wild in this slot and can replace any symbol other than the scatter to create winning lines. The scatter is the slot's one remaining symbol, which is a simple and traditional pink Japanese flower.

We said that it’s the bonus features in this slot which add the extra layers, so let’s fill you in on all the details.

Bonus Features

The most inventive of the bonus features on offer in Shogun of Time is the Reel Split Respin. At the start of this review, we mentioned that the number of reels could change. This is how it happens. You can trigger this feature by finding any winning line that uses four or more of the same symbol. That will generate a fifth reel, which appears in the middle of the layout and takes the form of a time machine! You don't need to take any action to use it; it will spin of its own accord and will reveal a series of identical symbols. The rest of your symbols remain in place, meaning that the value of your previous win can be added to. It can also result in new winning combinations being created. That's why it's a ‘time machine' - it adds value to a win you've had in the past! When this feature is active, the number of ways to win jumps up from 81 all the way to 243.

As well as that complex and exciting bonus Shogun of Time also offers Free Spins. The best news about this feature is that it also causes the fifth reel to appear, with a different format. During free spins, the additional reel is completely wild. Because it’s in the middle of the layout - the best place for a wild reel to be - it significantly boots your winning potential. Not only that - your wins can now happen right-to-left as well as left-to-right. To win yourself a free spins round you need to land either three or four scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. Three will get you eight spins, or four will bring you sixteen.

As you can see from the above, the bonus features are what make this slot special, and are the most likely way for you to take significant winnings away from it.

About the Mobile Slots Developer - Just For The Win

Just For The Win logo

You may not be familiar with the name ‘Just For The Win,' and that's because the Swedish developer is fairly new to the online slot world. They were founded in Gothenburg in 2016 as a small business with twenty employees. They've grown a little since then, have found that online casinos (such as Amigo Slots) are receptive to the quality of their work.

As a smaller developer, Just For The Win have a partnership with the much larger Microgaming, who allow them to use their ‘Quickfire' software to host and release their slots on. Should they grow larger it's likely they'll develop their own equivalent, but at this stage in their young lives as a company, the arrangement suits them well.

According to its company website, Just For The Win's mission statement is to develop fun gaming content with a focus on video slots, intended for use in online casinos worldwide. That's a big dream, but based on their output so far they're well on their way to realizing it. Aside from Shogun of Time, other successful slots published by the developer include Reel Talent Mobile Slots Game and Amazing Aztecs.
