Game Rules

Silent Samurai

5-Reel, 9-Line SlotThe Wild in Silent Samurai is the Gold Dragon!

The objective of Silent Samurai online slot is to match symbols on paylines across the reels.

To Play the Game:

  • First select your coin size by using the Click to Change Menu on the left hand side of the screen. This will open up a menu showing different coin, whichever you select will be the minimum amount you can Bet per Line.
  • After choosing your coin size you must then choose the Number of Lines, between a minimum of 1 and maximum of 9 lines. You choose the number of paylines by pressing the Lines button on the bottom of the screen, or choosing one of the numbers from the sides of the reels. Please note: if, for example, you select the number 8 payline from the side of the reel this will activate the 8th payline as well as paylines 1-7.
  • Finally, choose your bet per line, this will be increased or decreased in increments of your chosen coin size. The Total Bet per spin is worked out as Number of Lines x Bet per Line.
  • When you have chosen your Total Bet, select Spin to spin the reels and start the Silent Samurai slot.
  • You can use the Bet Max button to automatically spin the reels at the maximum number of lines at your chosen line bet.
  • You can also set a predetermined number of spins to be played consecutively using the Autoplay function. When Autoplay is active the same button will read Stop, select this to stop the Autoplay. Autoplay will stop when a Bonus Feature has been awarded and when the chosen number of spins has been played through.
  • When a winning combination has been awarded it will be clearly highlighted on the reels. All wins are displayed in the Paytable, which can be accessed by selecting the Info button from the bottom left of the screen. Line Wins pay x the Line Bet, whereas Scatter Wins pay x Total Bet.
  • Only the highest win is paid on an active payline. Multiple wins on different paylines are added together and awarded as a Total Win.
  • In the event of a winning spin, the Gamble Button will flash. Selecting this will allow you to enter a Double or Nothing Bonus game where you must guess if the next drawn card is higher than the dealer’s card. A correct guess doubles your winnings. An incorrect guess will forfeit your winnings and return you to the main reels. More information can be found on the Gamble Info Page.

Info Page:  

If you press the Info Button on the bottom left of the screen, it will open up the Info Pages. These Pages are:

  • Paytable Page: shows all winning symbol combinations and their values.
  • Bonus Page: gives information on the Silent Samurai Free Spins Bonus.
  • Gamble Page: shows how the Gamble Feature is played.
  • You can select the Show Paylines option on the Paytable Page to display a graphic showing the position of the different paylines on the reels.


You can view the paylines by continuously pressing the Lines button on the bottom of the screen. Alternatively, you can view the graphic on the info page.

Only active paylines can register wins, with the exception of Scatter Wins.  

Please Note: There is a difference between the Line Bet (your wager on each payline) and the Total Bet (your wager on all the paylines). All wins on paylines are x the Line Bet. Scatter Wins are x the Total Bet. Multiple wins on different paylines are added together and paid as a total win, this is displayed in a box below the reels.

About Payouts:

Information about payouts can be viewed by accessing the Paytable. This will show how much your Line Bet will be multiplied by, or how much your Total Bet will be multiplied by for Scatter Wins.

Only the highest win is paid on an active payline. Mutliple wins on different paylines are common, these will be added together.

A Line Win featuring symbol combinations must start with reel 1 in an unbroken chain of at least 3 symbols.

The Wild Symbol can substitute for all others – except the Bonus and Scatter Symbols – to help form winning combinations. The Wild Symbol has its own standalone value which will pay if it has a greater value than the combination it is involved with on a payline.

Scatter Symbol:

The Scatter Symbol, represented by the Geisha animation, does not need to be on a payline to be considered active. If 3 or more land anywhere on the reels you will win. The Scatter Win is x the Total Bet as per the Paytable.

Bonus Symbol:

The Bonus Symbol appears on reels 1 and 5 only. When it lands on both these reels the Bonus will be activated. You will be guaranteed to win at least 5x the Total Bet. When the Bonus is activated:

  • You will be taken to a new screen and prompted to ‘Hit’ Ninjas which will reveal Multipliers and Free Spins. Some special Ninjas will reveal the prizes hidden under 3 others.
  • Whenever a Ninja explodes, all Free Spins and Multipliers will be added up and the Free Spins Bonus will begin.
  • In the Free Spins Bonus all lines and bets are the same. However, if you collected multipliers any wins will be subject to the multiplier value.
  • If the Bonus Symbols land on reels 1 and 5 again during Free Spins, 8 extra Free Spins will be awarded.
  • After all Free Spins have been played the Bonus ends and your winnings are displayed as a Total Win.


The following buttons appear along the bottom of the screen:

  • Info – opens the Paytable and Silent Samurai Slot Reference Pages.
