Kensei Blades doesn't reveal too much, does it? It's a title that suggests an Oriental theme, but we'll come to that shortly. We have gone through every aspect of this slot game to bring you the facts right here.

Developer details look promising

Any time we spot another game from Betsoft, we're up for a few spins to learn more about it.

We get a demo to try first if we like

This is the best way to see what you think of it and how to work out whether it offers enough for you to try the real thing.

A beautiful Oriental theme

We could easily overuse the word beautiful while writing this slot game. But it really does apply in this case.

Betsoft does well with the design

The backdrop to this design puts us in the countryside, with a watercolor effect creating something a little different. Most of the icons on the reels sparkle as gems or other symbols, giving you a stunning screen to look at as you play. The titular blades appear on top and underneath the title too.

How to play Kensei Blades

You can expect five reels to appear once you've loaded this game. They look a little different to the usual reels though, as Betsoft has chosen a 3-4-5-4-3 format. They haven't given us any progressive jackpots though.

The first symbol to look for is the Sakura Wild, colored in pink and featuring one of the characters in the game. It only lands on the middle three reels. It substitutes for everything apart from the Kensei Scatter and the free game symbol. You'll need three or more Kensei Scatters to earn the relevant prize.

There are no paylines in this slot

Don't panic, though - it means we get the chance to play across 720 ways instead.

Choose your bets with care

This always applies, of course, and in this case the minimum bet to cover all the winning ways comes out at a dollar. You can go through several other bet amounts to reach the maximum of $50 per spin if you wish.

Make sure you look over the paytable

It tells you what you need to know before you play the game - and there's a lot to take in.

Bonus features? Not this time around

It's a shame, but when you see the potential in the free spin feature, you'll see why this is the case.

Free spins work differently here

You must get at least five symbols to score some free spins, with one landing on each reel. Each combination of five free spin icons will bring you eight freebies. This means that landing multiple symbols on the same reel will bring you more free games. You can get up to 96 spins like this.

Better still, the game can retrigger some spins too. If you managed to get the maximum quantity, you'd be looking at 240 free spins.

Kensei Blades is below the usual desired RTP range

The desired level is 96%, and this ranks at 95.12% according to official data from the software developer.

Our rating for Betsoft's Kensei Blades slot game

This is a superb game; you might feel it seems familiar, as we have seen this format a couple of times before. Yet it's the theme here that really elevates this one, taking it into 8/10 territory this time.

Does Kensei Blades have some promising winning potential?

It certainly does, as the top prize comes out to 3,414x your wager.

Play the practice one to try it

Kensei Blades has a lot of elements to look at, so the demo is ideal as a starting point.

Play for real to have a chance of prizes

If you want to try and scoop some prizes, the real version is the one to try if it fits your budget.

Mobile slot fans are good to go too

Betsoft has released this game to play on iOS and Android devices along with HTML5 action on desktop computers.
