Hanzo's Dojo Slot Review

The story of Hanzo is that he is a much-revered warrior of Japan who was a brave fighter he eventually killed his brother for not behaving. I am glad I didn't live in Japan in 1549, because my brother would undoubtedly have been told to kill me. Having said that I am sure he wants to kill me anyway. I drive him crazy with my wild shenanigans. Perhaps its time to start sleeping with one eye open?

Hanzo’s Dojo is superior in presentation to a lot of other slots with a similar theme. The reels are set against a beautiful background of rolling hills and cherry blossoms, typical of the Japanese countryside. The reels are regally set within a temple guarded by 2 lions. The symbols are beautifully animated, and the whole slot seems to tell Hanzo’s story which is one of bravery and honor. Hanzo’s Dojo is a complete package of everything we love in terms of gameplay, with free spins, multipliers and expanding wilds all in play.

The reels came alive on all the devices we tested this slot on.


25 paylines go along way on this unique reel offering which is set up as a 3-5-5-5-3 formation.

Symbols on the reels include what look to be cards with bonsai trees, Tsuru cranes (birds), wind storms and waves. You will also see a samurai, ninja, sumo and fan fighter

The wild is a golden mask which will replace all others to help form winning combos except for the Free Spins and Hanzo Spins bonus symbols.

Controls are neatly set into the steps leading up to the temple. The first step reveals the information of each control, while the second step offers the names of the controls.


Rooftop Slot The three positions in the roof area spin with the rest of the reels to reveal the following symbols:

  • Wild – it will expand downwards to fill up the reel below.

  • Hanzo – three in view will award three Hanzo Spins in which a 3×3 symbol is locked into reels two, three and four.

  • Free Spins – at least one in view will award the total number of free spins on the symbols with extra boosters.

For the free spins, you'll get one booster per symbol including 2 extra free spins, 2-way pay, 3×3 symbol nudge to get it into the best position, 2x Multiplier or a Wild 5th reel.

Free Spins

The free spins are triggered by landing 3 free spins symbols anywhere during the base game, including the rooftop area; you’ll receive the total number of spins on those symbols plus a booster if it includes any from the rooftop. Reels, 2, 3and 4 only feature 3×3 giant symbols during this round.

Maximum Win

375 000 coins will be paid for maximum bravery of placing a maximum bet on Hanzo’s Dojo


This slot can be described as an epic tale. It has everything needed for a great adventure. The animation is brilliant; the interface is beautiful, the gameplay is varied and rewarding.
Added to that is the music that sets the epic atmosphere.


I highly recommend this game to those who have an interest in ancient Japanese warriors and the honor that was steeped into their culture. Great offering Yggdrasil.
