Ninja culture is popular in all forms of story-telling and this theme is in itself sufficient to draw traffic to the Ninja Magic online pokie. The female and male ninja duo is the lead symbols. Both are armed to the hilt. The female ninja carries a sai sword and a fireball. The male prefers the shuriken or the star shaped disc. The ninjas come alive in the win animations with swift slashing strokes. The symbols include the deadly Black Ninja Wasp and the Giant Barbarian Spider. The wasp is the nemesis of the female and the spider of the male. The low paying symbols are the usual playing card icons but designed to fit the theme. The Ninja Magic logo is the wild symbol and awards the highest line payouts. The treasure pot is the scatter symbol and the temple is the bonus symbol.
The ninja magic begins in earnest when three or more temple symbols appear anywhere on the reels and trigger the free spins bonus feature. Three symbols start you with 1 free spin at 1x multiplier, four symbols with 2 free spins and 2x multiplier and five symbols with 3 free spins and 3x multiplier. You get entry to the temple where the nine wasps and nine spiders are waiting. You select them one by one. The male ninja will kill the chosen spider and the female ninja will kill the chosen wasp. Each creature destroyed will add to the number of free spins or payout multiplier. The battle continues till you reveal “Start free spins”. The free spins are then played out. You can win up to 40 free spins at 8x multiplier. The feature cannot be retriggered.
Ninja Magic has 40 selectable paylines in the regular 5×3 structure. Ninja players will wager with all paylines enabled so as to harness the full power of the magic. In this video pokie you can select from 1 to 5 coins per payline. The final betting choice is the coin size, which can vary from AU$0.01 to AU$0.25. The maximum line bet is AU$1.25 and the maximum total bet per spin is AU$50. Despite the popularity of the ninja theme, high roller interest is unlikely to sustain. The maximum line payout in this online pokie is 12,000 times the line bet for five wild symbols in an active payline. With maximum bet this will pay AU$15,000 in the base game. The top scatter payout is 100 times the total bet, which will pay AU$5,000.
