More of this in the unbiased review below:

Game Set-Up

You will be playing on a 5x4 reels set-up, and on it, you will enjoy up to 40 lines. The features that the developers have considered here include wild, free spins with multipliers (up to 5xs), respins and scatters among others.

Betting and Prizes

With wagers starting from a low of $0.20, the slot can be played for real money by all levels of players. Up to $80 can go into a single spin.

Now, for the prizes, Jade Shuriken offers average pay, and the very best rewards will be triggered via its Epic Strike Jackpot. Landing up to 12 scatter symbols will deliver payments of 2,500x the stake (this is about $200,000 in cash).

Although not everybody will be happy with these prices, the developers have given the slot a very low volatility level, plus a fair RTP of 96.24%.

Jade Shuriken Slot Features

Wilds are going to form part of the features, and they will serve in their capacity as substitutes while you are forming winning combos. In addition, these wilds are capable of forming their own winning combos that pay up to 62.50x the stake (per line).

For me, the best feature to work with is the Epic Strike mechanic as this will trigger the slot’s top prizes. Landing 3 to 12 scatters triggers prizes of between 1x and 2,500x the stake. You can only land them on the 2nd to the 4th reels.

Then there are the Golden Shurikens which are the features that you will use to trigger Respins. This is where the activating symbols appear in a sticky form. Besides the 3+ that trigger the respins, you work hard to get extra Golden Shurikens. This way, you get to work with more scatters, and even hit bigger rewards.

Last but not least are the free spins that you will activate via 3 scatters (these will appear on reels 2-4). You select from the version that has 6 spins plus the multiplier of 5x, 15 spins and a 2x multiplier, or 10 spins and a 3x multiplier.

Theme & Design

The slot machine draws its inspiration from China, as well as from their ninjas, precisely (shurikens are their weapons). Shuriken appears in different forms, and there are other icons as well and they appear in the images of Sevens, bells, hand fans, and teapots.


Jade Shuriken is an excellent slot game. It plays well, offers low volatility, and far better payments than what you would’ve expected.

The slot is an excellent choice for a beginner, but even experienced gamers will find something to enjoy.
