Deadly, honourable and master warriors, the samurais of old could seriously kick butt. But does the Silent Samurai mobile slot live up to its name?
It’s hard to find fault in the look and feel of Playtech games. This Silent Samurai slot machine is in fact hard to fault in practice.
The problem is that it feels like it’s all been done before. Yet a little familiarity is not always a bad thing.
So yes, the Silent Samurai video slot is exactly like every other mobile phone slot from Playtech.
The graphics are sharp, the sounds interesting, and it’s a pretty enough slot, with golden dragon wilds, coins, shurikens and high card symbols all written in a pretty Japanese calligraphy style.
It is, in fact, a very simple game. It reminded us a little of the Zhao Cai Jin Bao slot. Yes one is in china and the other Japan, we’re not that ignorant.
We are talking about concentrating on one big feature to get your thrills over 9 simple pay lines and 5 reels.
Mostly, we’ve won about 6 to 15 free spins, with an average of 4x multiplier.
The most we’ve gotten was 19 free spins with an 8x multiplier, and from that we walked away with a good 55 times our bet. But then we did the same with a 4x multiplier, so what you get in this click-me-game doesn’t always determine how successful you’ll be in the Silent Samurai slot.
There’s no denying that there are big wins to be had here, including in the base game were we also hit 50 times our bet several times.
We calculated, if you get 5 wilds on an 8x multiplier, you’ll win a 4,444 times your bet win. That’s huge.
Yet we’re not sure how often we’d come back to this machine. Possibly because in comparison to so many other prettier Playtech slot games, like the incredibly entertaining Age of the Gods slot or the fantastic Justice League slot, Silent Samurai looks a little… lacklustre. Too simple maybe?
On the other hand, with a far more easy to play betting range, we might surprise ourselves and come throw a few shurikens in the hope of catching those big multipliers in the free spins.
The Silent Samurai slot might be an average Playtech machine, but that still makes it head and shoulder above most other slots providers.

Wilds: The gold dragon is wild and replaces all other symbols except scatter and bonus. It's also the top paying symbol, with 5 in a row giving you a top prize amount of 5,000 coins.
Scatters: The Geisha symbol is scatter. 3 will pay 5 times your bet, 4 - 25 times your bet and 5 - 100 times your bet.
Free Spins: Get the samurai fighter symbol on reel 1 and 5 and you'll automatically get 5x your bet. You'll then play a mini-game where you'll throw ninja stars at enemy... ninjas?
Samurais, ninjas... same, same, right?
You'll keep hitting ninjas, collecting free spins and multipliers, until you hit an evil ninja (wait... aren't they all evil? Or are you killing your friends meanwhile?) and the game stops and you play the free spins.
Hit a magic ninja (who is grateful you kill him? We guess?) and he'll reveals 3 extra ninjas that award prizes.
A simple 9 reel slot machine that knows when to give you enough to keep playing, but still provide some decent hope at some big wins with big multipliers on the free spins.
The Silent Samurai mobile slot is a decent addition to the Playtech slots collection.
Deadly enough to give you big wins on occasion, yet honourable enough to give you wins to keep playing in order to make a killing.
