Cuberpunk 2077 Meets Big Hero 6

What is it about animated movies that causes trauma? It should be light and fun, right? I was still in my twenties when Big Hero 6 was released, but the moment Tadashi died still haunts me. I want to introduce my girlfriend to Baymax, but that scene is worse than Mufasa being killed in The Lion King.

My preface about animated trauma is really just a way to introduce the world-building they did for Big Hero 6. San Fransokyo was beautiful and it’s a shame we can never go back…or was it? I wouldn’t say that the city of Push Gaming’s Samurai’s Katana slot was inspired by San Fransokyo, but it certainly felt the same vibe.

Welcome back

Samurai’s Katana slot has two different wilds. The standard wild symbol is used in place of other symbols to complete winning combinations. Then there is the stacked wild, which appears as four symbols stacked on top of each other. Stacked wilds only appear on reels 2, 3, and 4 in the base game. Stacked wilds can appear anywhere on the reels during the free spins round.

Instant win prizes appear as copper, silver, or gold coins at face value. These symbols pay out when two wild symbols are combined with one of these symbols to complete a payline going from left to right or right to left. Naturally, the Gold Instant Win Coin symbol has the most favorable denomination.

The slot’s free spins feature is triggered by either a standard scatter symbol or a gambling scatter symbol. When triggered on the latter, you are given the choice of collecting or gambling the spins. Once collected, you will be awarded a base number of free spins. If you gamble, you risk losing your free spins.

At the start of the free spins round, stacked wilds are placed on reels 2 and 4. The multiplier meter that appears to the left of the reels is set based on the free spins prizes won. Each time he spins, the stacked wild moves one space below him. Completed winning combinations are given a global multiplier. Every 5 nudges, the value of the global multiplier increases by one space on the multiplier meter. The reels will continue to spin until all stacked wilds are removed from the reels.

If you don’t want to fight to win a round of free spins, you can choose to purchase free spins. There are a variety of options to choose from when it comes to slot purchase bonus features.

Is Samurai’s Katana slot great or forgettable?

Samurai’s Katana slot offers multipliers of up to 10,000x your stake. This means that if you bet up to $30 per spin, you stand a chance of winning up to $300,000. If $30 per spin is a little rich for your balance, you can start betting with as little as $0.10. The high volatility of this slot means that gameplay tends to move away from small, consistent wins and towards infrequent big wins. His RTP for this slot is 96.4%.

The official description of the Samurai’s Katana slot on the Push Gaming website is “a dystopian future where cyborg killers are enhanced with the latest technology and hone their skills by practicing the ways of the samurai.” There are very few dystopian elements to this slot. Additionally, that dystopian angle is further diluted when the demon masks used are near-carbon copies of those worn by the Big Hero 6 villains. I think if they had gone a darker route along the same lines as something like Alita: Battle Angel, they would have had a better shot at getting the point across. That being said, only geeks like me check to see what the developers are aiming for when creating the latest slots.

As a standalone product, we got an authentic Baymax feel with a touch of Cyberpunk 2077. This is definitely a combination that I love and has a lot of potential. I wish they would have stuck to the story a little more and given us one or two cutscenes. That said, the graphics were great and the bonus features were interesting and plentiful. This gets a 7 out of 10 because it’s a missed potential.
