ABOUT

Immerse yourself in the ethereal world of Densho, a slot game that paints a fascinating fusion of Asian culture and modern slot gaming mechanics. Collect mystical Densho symbols and paint glamorous drawings over your entire reels to infuse them with Multiplier Wilds! Upgrade your Densho symbols even further in the bonus game and massively increase your winning potential.

Betting Options and Bonus Features

The game is meticulously crafted with a captivating pink watercolor design, offering an enchanting gaming experience on a 5-reel, 4-row grid layout. One of the game's striking features is the Wild Multiplier Reels. The so-called Densho symbols expand into Wild Multiplier Reels when they cross one or more winning lines during expansion. 

There are 3 types of Densho symbols, each with unique multiplier attributes. The Common Densho symbol multiplies wins from 2x to 10x, followed by the Rare Densho which offers values between 5x and 50x. The most valuable of all, the Legendary Densho, can multiply payline wins it's part of by a massive 100x. If more than one Densho symbol forms part of the same winning combination, their values are summed before the payout, potentially leading to hefty winnings.

But the big wins don’t stop there. The Free Spins feature introduces Progression Trackers found on top of each reel. The level displayed on these trackers signifies the minimum quality of the Densho symbol that can land on the reel. Landing on an Upgrade symbol fills up its corresponding Progress Tracker, improving the minimum value of the Densho symbol that can appear on that reel. Extra spin triggers can also occur here - if two FS symbols appear, you get 2 extra spins, while landing 3 garners you 4 additional spins. 

The Super Free Spins is a feature that can sweeten the deal further. It starts with Progression Trackers at level 2, which endows you with a higher minimum value of Rare Densho symbols right from the get-go. Just like the previous round, you can land re-triggers by landing the required number of FS symbols during this feature.

Densho also offers the Bonus Buy option, making it possible for you to speed up or outright skip the base game and dive straight into Free Spins. Here are the available options:

  • BonusHunt FeatureSpins - Activate for 3x your stake to be 5 times more likely to trigger a bonus. 
  • Densho FeatureSpins - Activate for 50x your stake to land a minimum of 2 Densho symbols in each spin.
  • Free Spins - For 100x your stake start the progressive bonus game at level 1
  • Super Free Spins - For 250x your stake start the progressive bonus game at level 2

Roshtein’s Take

Although I always focus on gameplay features when it comes to slots and judge the game by its contents, not the cover, it would be absolutely criminal to disregard the visual design of this game. The color palette and animation are to die for and Hacksaw has elevated the visual standard in iGaming to new levels once again. As for gameplay, Densho could have used a little more creative mechanics, ironically enough. The features could have used a little more inspiration, given that the Expanding Wild mechanic is very similar to other Hacksaw titles like Beast Below or even Ronin StackWays.
