Nolimit City just keeps on dominating the warrior-themed online slots, and with Bushido Ways xNudge they just confirm this fact. After the massive success of the warrior-series slots in the likes of Warrior Graveyard and Barbarian Fury, Nolimit City has once again decided to create a fast-paced and exhilarating warrior-themed slot, only this time they drew inspiration from the far East and Japan. This resulted in the creation of a unique online slot that follows the strict Bushido code, which together with the captivating visuals, make for an insanely exciting and rewarding online slot experience that comes with the max win feature “Journey’s End”, just like San Quentin’s “Psycho Manhunt”.
And while Bushido Ways is indeed inspired by Barbarian Fury and Warrior Graveyard and even shares the same extreme volatility, the rewarding potential of this game surpasses its predecessors by far. Not only do you get the xNudge multiplier that is also the Geisha symbol, but Bushido Ways comes with both regular and sticky wilds, both Shogun and Geisha spin features, as well as a whopping maximum win potential of 30.000 times your stake. And this is without mentioning the buy feature, the splitting symbols, and the overall exhilarating pace and visuals. All things considered, it seems like Nolimit City has slowly, but surely taken over the warrior-themed online slot genre, and Bushiod Ways just confirms this.
Coming in as the 3rd installment in the warrior-themed series by Nolimit City, Bushido Ways is a 5-reel and 4-row slot that comes with 1024 ways to win and extreme volatility. However, should you land sliced wilds on the 3rd, 4th and 5th reel, then the 1024 win ways can become a whopping 12.288 ways to win that will also feature the xNudge Geisha multiplier wild on the middle reel. It comes with two rewarding bonus rounds, two sets of free spins, and a bunch of additional features as well.
Moreover, there are 3 samurai symbols that are considered premium and they come in 1×4 size. They can either land fully or partly in view, with the masked samurai symbol having the highest value out of all symbols with 2 times your stake if you land 5 such symbols on a payline.
You can activate the Shogun Spins by landing 3 scatter symbols anywhere on the reels, and this will award you 8 free spins at minimum. Yet if you land more than 3 scatters, you will get one extra spin per each additional scatter. From here, you can benefit even further from any additional wild that lands on reels 2-5, and that is on each spin. The way you upgrade to the next level Geisha Spins is if you land the Geisha Wild on the mid-reel.
If you land 3 Bonus symbols simultaneously as the Wild Geisha lands, you will get 8 Geisha Spins, and for each additional nudge performed by the Wild Geisha, you will get a sticky multiplier. The amount of additional Geisha Spins depends depending on the xNudge multiplier, where you will be awarded +1 additional spin if you land an additional Bonus symbol. Moreover, you will get +1 Geisha Spin if you land extra Bonus symbols for the duration of the Bonus rounds, where for each spin you get a single, yet guaranteed wild on the 2nd, 4th, or 5th reel.
When it comes to the Wilds & Sliced Wilds, there are fixed Wilds on a single position, particularly on the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th reels. These can substitute any symbol in the game, with the exception of the Bonus symbols. Moreover, the Wilds can then be sliced into 2 Wilds on the 3rd reel, into 3 Wilds on the 4th reel, and into 4 Wilds on the 5th reel, and they are responsible for increasing the max win to 12.288. It is good to mention that while in the Geisha and Shogun spin rounds, and before any potential slicing occurs, these Wilds will copy themselves down to the last row located at the bottom.
The Wild xNudge Geisha symbol can be landed exclusively on the 3rd reel, and once this happens, the symbol will nudge in the place where it landed. The reason why the feature xNduge is so exciting is that it increases the wild multiplier by +1 for each nudge made by the Wild Geisha. Not only does this make the Geisha Wild substitute all regular symbols in the game, but she also has the potential to accumulate a multiplier of 4 times your stake.
The beauty of the Oni Transform feature lies in the fact that this feature can substitute even the lowest value symbols with the highest paying symbols. More specifically, when you land Bonus symbols simultaneously with the premium Samurai symbols, they are instantly transformed into the highest-paying symbols that are currently available on the reels. They will also transform literally every lower-value premium Samurai symbol into the same highest-paying symbol currently available on the reels.
Lastly, but most certainly not least, we have the Buy Feature, which has already become a standard option for practically all slots at Nolimit City. While not available in all markets, should you opt for the Buy Feature, you should be prepared to give 75 times your stake for the Shogun Spins, while for the Geisha Spins you will be set back 700 times your stake, with a 96.13% and 96.82% RTP, respectively.
All it takes is one look at the effort that Nolimit City puts into producing its online slots and it is immediately noticeable that we are dealing with one of the most dedicated iGaming developers on the market. Due to the desire of this software provider to stack its products with ingenious and insanely rewarding features and surprises, Nolimit City is seriously taking over not just the warrior-themed genre, but the overall iGaminng market itself. I mean, all it takes is to take a regular online slot and a Nolimit City online slot and dissect them down to the core and is evident that most of the average online slots don’t stand a chance of matching the excitement and rewarding prowess of Nolimit.
With this in mind, while Bushido Ways does indeed comes as a successor of two highly successful slots, Barbarian Fury and Warrior Graveyard, it definitely surpasses them in the rewarding aspect. Especially if we compare it with most Megaways slots out there that are no way near matching the rewarding prowess of Bushido Ways. The only thing you might call a flaw would be the adjustable RTP, which at times can be quite downright frozen. But aside from this, and taking everything else into consideration, Bushido Ways is one of the most exciting slots we’ve ever reviewed, and definitely one of the best online slots from the warrior-theme genre ever created.
