The dragon is the wild symbol in this game, and players will be able to pick up a nice payout worth 5,000x as the top regular jackpot in the game when you get five of them on an activated payline. This symbol is a source of a lot of value because it shows up on all of the reels all of the time with chances to make lots of extra payouts that you wouldn't normally get. This includes a wide range of wins on the medium and small levels that contribute to the overall moderate volatility of Silent Samurai.

The main bonus features in this game is triggered by getting a samurai on the first and last rows at the same time. You're automatically given a payout worth five times your starting bet, and you're given as many as 27 free spins with multipliers as high as 8x. Basically you'll pick ninjas that can give you either more free spins or higher multipliers, and this adds a ton of value to your free spins. The multipliers here give you a shot at some really big payouts, so it's something that you should really pay attention to.
