The theme is a little odd, but this Samurai Ken mobile slot has plenty of sticky wins to recommend it.
Fantasma has created a good looking slot. It’s a little odd; it’s basically set around it’s own oriental mythology where a white tiger is now a Samurai and his name is… Ken.
Yes, it’s as odd as it sounds, but between the lush landscapes and the fierce looking dragon that stands 3 symbols tall, there is something strangely appealing.
Anyone who’s familiar with the two slot machines above will recognise the mechanics behind this Samurai Ken slot game.
Whenever you get a win, those symbols will stay ‘sticky’ on the screen and the rest of all the other symbols will spin individually in a free re-spin.
These will now keep spinning until no more winning symbols can be found over the 20 payline of this Fantasma Games slot.
We love sticky win slots – there’s something about getting that value for money and hitting multiple 4 or 5 of a kind wins that makes things exciting.
There seems to be a lot of conflict about the free spins; namely, some out there can’t seem to catch them, others catch 10 rounds in 100 spins.
We experienced the latter, so probably why this video slot review got 4 stars as we kept hitting the free spins and managed to walk away with 200 times our bet on one of those occasions.
The beauty of these is that they can go on forever because you get Ken and the Dragon slashing at each other randomly and when one dies, the free spins die.
And you know what’s crazy? There’s nothing that special about the free spins in this game.
There are just… wild symbols! Something you find in every other slot game out there! But it works, because you get those sticky wins and re-spins far more often and it feels more exciting.
Of course, let’s be honest – that 200 times our bet win was probably the exception rather than a rule; this is an easy play game, unlike Northern Sky slot which concentrates more on sticky wilds.
But we had good fun with this oriental panther which kept the action flowing.

Stacked High Paying Symbols: Samurai Ken and the Dragon are the two higher paid symbol and they come 3 symbols high.
Sticky Wins: Whenever you get a win, those symbols will stay sticky and you'll get a re-spin of the rest of the symbols. The more winning symbols you find, the more re-spins you'll get.
Scatters, Free Spins and Wild Symbols: 3 Flag scatter symbols appearing in the base game on reels 1, 3 and 5 and you'll trigger the free spins.
Ken and the Dragon will slash at each other randomly after most spins, fighting to the death. When one dies, the free spins bonus games finish.
Will it be 5 spins? 40 spins? Who knows? Meanwhile, you also have added wild symbols on the screen, giving you extra re-spins and extra wins.
This Samurai might have inherited his name from barbie's better half, but the Samurai Ken slot manages to balance the kooky theme with those sticky wins that give you value for money.
Other than the theme, it's not particularly unique in terms of the mechanics or gameplay.
But that doesn't mean you can't enjoy a fun, light, easy to play mobile phone slot that can be surprisingly generous at the time.
