Theme & Background

Over many decades we’ve been shown a fairly archetypical image of a ninja in comic books, tv shows and movies. It’s mostly a nimble and acrobatic guy in black with a cloth masking his nose and mouth, so he can’t be identified. Popular weapons are throwing stars and nun chucks.

Originally, the idea of ninjas can be traced back to feudal Japan, where they were known as covert agents or mercenaries. They were hired mostly for espionage, sabotage, infiltration and assassination. Contrary to the samurai who were considered military nobility, ninjas were seen as dishonorable.

The ninja jumping over the reels in Ninja Ways seems to fit that archetype fairly well. And he is also a dead ringer for popular anime character Naruto with an added face mask. The background of the screen is filled with typical Japanese houses and even the playing field seems to be housed within one.

Like that, Ninja Ways will transport you right to the Far East where you can get a feeling for what it would be like to be a proper ninja!


We’ve mentioned it before, but it does bear repeating. The layout of this slot is a little unusual. You’re playing on 6 reels instead of on the more commonly used 5 and instead of paylines, you get 4,096 ways to win.

The low-paying symbols are the typical card values from 10 to A, but the way they’re drawn, they almost look like Japanese characters.

The high-paying symbols are represented by the weapons of the ninja, such as throwing stars and nun chucks.

Of course, a slot like this also offers some (badly) hidden bonus features that we wouldn’t want to hide from you. So read on in any of the sections below to learn more about them.

Main Features

Ninja spins

Ninja Spins

What lesser video slots would call their free spin round, this one is naming Ninja Spins. Just land at least five free spin symbols adjacent from left to right and get some ninja spins.

Each free spin symbol bears a number indicating how many free spins you earn, so it can differ vastly between each ninja spins round.

During the ninja spins round, each free spin symbol grants you extra ninja spins – no matter where it lands on your reels.

ninja door

Ninja Door

The ninja door is obviously activated by the amazing stealthy skills of our ninja. Whenever this feature is triggered, it will reveal a random giant symbol that can cover 2×2, 3×3 or even 4×4 positions on your reels, giving you the best chances at a big win.

ninja wild

Ninja Wilds

Our ninja himself acts as the wild symbol in the game. As per usual, it substitutes for all other symbols except for the extra special free spin symbols.

Sometimes, there can even be a multiplier of up to 8x attached to the ninja symbol, really enhancing your wins.

ninja ways

Ninja Ways

At times our ninja really wants to show off his skills. And so he would randomly slash all over our reels in any direction, leaving behind identical symbols and giving you a big chance at a huge win.

Payouts and Wagering Limits

The betting range in Ninja Ways is fairly limited. While it’s nice that you can spin the reels with as little as $0.20, we were a little disappointed that the cap is at $10 per spin. With a maximum win of 10,000x your bet, this only gives us a mediocre $100,000 to be gained from this slot.

The RTP is nothing that’ll knock your socks off either. It’s set at a very average 96.03% and if you couple that with a medium volatility that is leaning toward the high side, this slot might not be for everyone.

The great design and the fun bonus features will however make Ninja Ways interesting for a wide range of players. So, even if you’re not very experienced, we’d wager that you’d still have some fun with this game.


Final Verdict

Ninja Ways


Ninjas have held a big fascination for a long time and so we have to hand it to Red Tiger for incorporating this thematic into a slot game. And it is a truly gorgeous one. The graphics are modern and amazing, and the animations are insanely smooth.

We would have liked to see a bigger bet range and as a result a bigger maximum win, but we’re still fairly sure that any player can have fun with Ninja Ways for quite a while. So, why not give it a try?
