Legend of Daruma Slot Machine
With cartoon-like graphics, Leander Games presents to you their latest slot release, called Legend of Daruma. It is a slot where the Japanese dolls are your hosts, which offer some pretty awesome special features to you. The features fit the theme and make the game really engaging.
This game will give you not one, but two Wild symbols. The first one is the Gold Daruma and the second one is the Red Daruma. Both Wilds can give you a 500x payout for a five-of-a-kind, although they don’t act as replacements as most Wilds do. They can only form part of predetermined combos, so you will need to land them in a combination with specific symbols to give you a payout.
The Dragon is the Scatter symbol in the slot, which can deliver the Free Spins feature for you. Land 3 Dragons and you get 8, land 4 Dragon Scatters and you are rewarded with 12, or land 5 Scatters to get 16 Free Spins. The Free Spins cannot be retriggered, but they can give Free Respins, thanks to the Gold Daruma Wild. Based on how many Scatters helped you trigger the Free Spins feature, the Gold Daruma will go up in size and will expand to 2 to 4 positions, giving you some awesome payouts. As long as the Gold Daruma symbols are visible, you get new Respins. With each Respin, the Gold Daruma symbols move to the left by one position, each round, until they completely leave the reels.
There is another feature you can benefit from. The Daruma Pop-Up Wild triggers randomly, where you will see a red Daruma Tower appear out of nowhere. This feature will transform all the symbols on the reel it appears into Wilds.
But wait; there is more. There is one last feature you can take advantage of, and that is the Fireball feature. It will activate at random, and when it does, it will start spitting fireballs that will transform all regular symbols into Red Daruma Wilds.
Theme & Design
The first thing you will notice is that the slot is really colourful and it has so many details that it takes time to analyse them all. You will notice the Japanese dolls in different colours, with different facial expressions and forms. The reels are set in a red-green Japanese temple, and other symbols that you will see are hand fans, lotus flowers and coins. There are some playing card symbols, as well, which are actually the lowest-paying symbols.
Everything is portrayed with cartoonish graphics, with some impressive graphics. The gameplay provides you with excitement and action, so this is definitely one of the most interesting games by Leander Games.
Wagering & Paylines
Legend of Daruma gives you 25 paylines, where you can start betting from $0.01 per line. The maximum line bet you can place is $2.00, so this makes the betting range go from $0.25 to $50.00.
To top the great betting range, Leander Games gives you a decent RTP of 96.19%. For this type of RTP and the 500x the stake payout for the winning combos with Wilds, there is $25,000.00 for grabs. But this payout can be topped with the awesome features, the Free Spins and the Respins.
By the look of it, Legend of Daruma has the potential of becoming one of the most exciting games by Leander Games. It features a nice theme which is beautifully presented, there is a solid RTP and the special features are refreshing since they do not do the usual stuff. The payouts are frequent and rewarding, so there’s nothing left to be said: just go for it and try it.
