Is Densho Slot the Most Beautiful Slot Ever Created?

After playing Densho slot from Hacksaw Gaming, I was left asking myself if a casino game could be considered a work of art. I think it’s fair to say that all slots are not works of art. However, that surely doesn’t mean all slots can’t be art. If the form is elevated beyond what is practical for the operation of the slot, then would that not be a work of art? Do you, dear reader, even care?

With the philosophical portion of this review complete, let’s take a closer look at Densho slot.

Don’t let the beauty fool you

The slot offers a range of three expanding wild symbols in the base game and during free spins. The symbols will only expand if doing so would complete a winning combination. Each of the three wilds offers a different multiplier range that will be applied to a winning combination. The level one wild will award a multiplier between 2x and 10x, the level two multiplier 5x and 50x, and the level three multiplier 10x to 100x.

The slot offers two sets of free spins. A standard round of free spins is triggered with three scatter symbols, while four or more scatter symbols will trigger Super Free spins. Both rounds award 10 free spins.

During a round of free spins, progression trackers will start at level 1 above each reel. These trackers indicate the minimum wild level that will appear on the reel. Upgrade symbols will increase the progression tracker on the reel that it lands. During a round of Super Free Spins, all progression trackers start on level 2.

If you’re too impatient to wait for the burst of color that accompanies the triggering of a round of free spins, you can select to purchase a round of the slot’s free spins feature. The feature offers four bonus options. The first two options won’t unlock a free spins feature outright. Instead, they will increase the bet size and the chance of unlocking a bonus feature. The second two options are to trigger a round of free spins or a round of Super Free Spins.

Densho slot has medium to high volatility, which means that it offers a balance between small, consistent wins and rare big wins. You can bet at €25 a spin and play for a maximum payout of €250,000. However, if you’re looking to stretch your balance, you can still play for up to €1,000 when you’re betting at the €0.10 per spin minimum. The slot features an RTP of 96.4%.

Yes, Densho slot is art

Simply beautiful. That’s really all that needs to be said about Densho slot. I legitimately sat back for more minutes than I care to admit and just watched the slot transition from one beautiful scene to the next. Everything is beautifully illustrated, and it’s all brought to love with some stunning animations. And that’s before we even talk about the transition from the base game to a round of free spins.

When a round of free spins launches, the slot transitions from its beautiful monotone color palette to one bursting with color and life. I genuinely gasped the first time I unlocked a round of free spins. It’s just beautiful!

When I reviewed La Bandit slot, I remarked that Hacksaw Gaming had made a great slot that broke a run of some fairly forgettable titles. The company has continued that trend with Densho slot. The slot has, without a doubt, become my favorite slot of all time.

If you’re keen on exploring a few of my other favorite Hacksaw Gaming slots, I recommend the Toshi Video Club and Vending Machine.
