Did you ever think you would find a game based on the Japanese mafia? We didn’t, but you cannot deny Arrows Edge has created a game with an unusual theme here. Head into the underworld in Japan and see what is going on there, but do it safely and play the Yakuza slot instead of going there for real!
The game has the same Arrows Edge look that many of their games do, so it has a reliable appearance we think you will love. But what about the gameplay itself?
This title presents us with a five-reel format packing in 25 paylines.
Line bets can be decided on with ease, going from one cent apiece to $10 per line.
The wild in Yakuza is represented by a sword. You get a free respin whenever this appears. The sword will also move one position towards the leftmost reel, and the respins will continue until the sword leaves the first reel. You can also get further wilds landing in the respins, so this could go on a while!
Watch for the gangster too, because he is a scattered bonus icon and he has a very important role to fill.
Remember that gangster? Well, you may not want to meet him for real, but if he appears three times in a spin, you will unlock the bonus. You must choose from the characters presented to you to determine your prize. Will you find a traitor, some loyal members of the mafia, or the mole? Finding the traitor is your goal for the biggest prize here.
You also get some control here, because when you make your pick you can decide whether to take that prize or continue in the hope of winning more. What will you do, and will the mafia be on your side?
Yakuza makes good use of an unusual theme, and we like the way the bonus works according to that theme, too. If you are keen to find out more about Yakuza, you can try it in the demo mode Arrows Edge has made available. It is easy to switch to real-money play if you wish to try and secure some real prizes. How will you fare when you face up to the mafia?
