Kensei Bladestm Slot Feature Review & Gameplay—Swing for 240 free spins!

All the action on the reels centres around landing the Kensei scatter because he is the key to earning the highest spin bet multiplier, while you will also be building up combination wins thanks to the ‘Pay Both Ways’ feature that operates across 5 reels with 3-4-5-4-3 symbols positions on reels 1-2-3-4-5, respectively. The Sakura wild on the centre reels also pitches in to help you increase your chance of spinning in combination wins. All the while you are building up wins from regular symbols and the Kensei scatter, you’ll always be on the lookout for the ‘bonus symbol’ to trigger your entry into the Kensei Bladestm free spins bonus round, which is the key to landing huge wins on this slot!

All Features on BetSoft Gaming’s Latest Slot Release

  • Kensei Scatter: This symbol pays out multipliers of your spin bet whenever 3, 4, or 5 land anywhere in view on the reels + triggers the free spins bonus
  • Free Spins Bonus: Each time you land a combination of 5 bonus symbols across the reels, 8 free spins will trigger, plus you earn a 1x (even odds) payout on your spin bet. The free spins bonus comes with re-triggers that turn up surprisingly often. With this, you could earn up to a max of 240 free spins.
  • Sakura Wild: She is available on reels 2, 3 and 4. Her job is to substitute for any of the 8 regular symbols as a wildcard symbol thus giving you a higher chance of landing combination wins
  • Pay Both Ways: Symbol combinations wins can run across adjacent reels from left-to-right ‘or’ right-to-left
  • No Pay Lines: Kensei Bladestm doesn’t use pay lines thus giving you 720 Ways to Win

Pay Both Ways with No Pay Lines 720 Ways to Win Feature

The pay both ways features means regular symbol combinations can line up both ways across the reels using the no pay lines + adjacent reels mechanic.

  • Left-to-Right Wins: A winning symbol combination will always need to have the first symbol on reel 1, and then the following symbols in the combination must be in any position on adjacent reels. For example: ‘3-symbol win’ = same symbol on reels 1-2-3 / ‘4-symbol win’ = same symbol on reels 1-2-3-4 / ‘5-symbol win’ = same symbol on reels 1-2-3-4-5.
  • Right-to-Left Wins: Instead of the first symbol in a combination starting on reel 1, it must start on reel 5. For example: ‘3-symbol win’ = same symbol on reels 5-4-3 / ‘4-symbol win’ = same symbol on reels 5-4-3-2 / ‘5-symbol win’ = same symbol on reels 5-4-3-2-1.

Do 5 symbol combinations pay double wins? As this is a ‘Pay Both Ways’ slot title, when you land a 5-symbol combination you are effectively forming 2 combinations. One set of symbols running left-to-right on reels 1-2-3-4-5 and another right-to-left on reels 5-4-3-2-1, so you get paid twice!

Regular Symbols & Payouts

There is 1 scatter symbol that will pay when 3, 4, or 5 are anywhere in view on the reels. Then, there are 8 regular symbols all of which pay when 3, 4, or 5 like symbols appear on adjacent reels and run conductively from left-to-right (first symbol must be on reel 1) or right-to-left (first symbol must be on reel 5). Also, the Sakura wild symbol can substitute for any of the first 8 regular symbols, but cannot substitute as a wildcard for the scatter.
