Pokie Review

Bushido!

Bushido Code is a Japanese-themed pokie (see also Silent Samurai and Geisha) from developer GameArt, which specialises in high-performance online casino games made by industry experts looking to provide you with the best gaming experience across a wide range of devices and platforms. With 20 years of experience in both online and land-based gaming, the team at GameArt knows what players want from a good free pokies game and is determined to provide this for you.

The way of the warrior

‘Bushido’ literally translates as ‘the way of the warrior’ and is the name of the code that samurai lived by - a way of life similar to the idea of chivalry in Medieval Europe. The samurai code stressed a combination of loyalty, martial arts skills and honour until death, and was also influenced by the rise of Zen Buddhism to encourage samurai towards wisdom and serenity. The eight virtues of Bushido were righteousness, courage, benevolence, respect, sincerity, honour, loyalty and self-control.

There is no need to worry about being too virtuous in this pokie, as the samurai character who acts as the wild symbol will take care of the code for you. Bushido Code features five reels and three rows with 20 paylines. You can bet anything from $0.01 to $0.50 per line, meaning a maximum total bet of $10. There is also an autoplay feature for easy gameplay.

In Bushido Code, the low value symbols are the typical card values of 10, J, Q, K and A, while the high value symbols are represented by a samurai’s throwing star, crossbow and katana. The samurai himself is the wild symbol and can substitute for any other symbol except the scatter. The scatter symbol is the head of a terrifying zombie warrior wearing a traditional helmet.

Bonus features

If you click on the ‘settings’ button in the bottom left-hand corner of the screen, you have the option to switch on the gamble feature of Bushido Code. This means that after every win you can choose to either take the money or gamble it further. You will be shown a face-down playing card and if you can correctly predict the colour of the card, you will double your winnings. You can gamble on your winnings up to five times.

The main bonus feature of Bushido Code is triggered by landing three, four or five wild samurai symbols. These symbols can be scattered, but the first must be on reel one and the next symbols must be found on consecutive reels. If you are lucky enough to do this, you will be taken through to two bonus screens.

On the first bonus screen, you must choose one of five tori gate symbols to reveal the number of free spins you have won. The possibilities here depend on whether you landed three, four or five wild symbols in the first place and the maximum number of free spins you could win is 25.

The second bonus feature screen shows five samurai weapons. By choosing a weapon, you determine the multiplier that your free spins will be subject to. Again, this depends on how many wild symbols you triggered the feature with initially, with multipliers available of up to 10 x.
