ABOUT

Immerse yourself in samurai history with a twist of modern gaming in Hacksaw Gaming’s newest Stackways saga. Encircled by a tranquil bamboo forest, Ronin Stackaways brings back the popular Stackways mechanic, giving you an impressive 100,000 ways to win on a 5x4 battleground. So, awake your samurai spirit and gain the secrets of ancient warriors in the grand Super Stack Spins!

Betting Options and Bonus Features

The setting of Ronin StackWays is a scenic pink-lit valley characterized by traditional feudal Japanese architecture and endless waterfalls, infusing moments of tranquility into the gaming environment. Populated with dignified animal symbols like pandas, bears, foxes, tigers, and monkeys which function as premium symbols, the game pays out 2 to 4 times the stake for five-of-a-kind combinations. 

Interestingly, Ronin StackWays forgoes Wild symbols but introduces two distinctive StackWays symbols. When stacked to their maximum capacity, each reel can accommodate up to 10 positions contributing to a total of 100,000 winning ways.

The two variants of StackWay symbols reflect a unique and fascinating gameplay feature. The Regular StackWays symbol stacks each reel with 2, 3, or 4 matching symbols. The Revealing StackWays symbol, on the other hand, strays from its regular counterpart by stacking the reel with 5 to 10 symbols based on the longest possible winning combination. If there’s an equal chance of more than one winning combination, a random symbol is selected.

Ronin StackWays offers two bonus rounds centered around the StackWays feature. The first, called Stack Spins bonus round, can be activated by landing three FS Scatter symbols. In addition to offering you 10 free spins, this round boasts a high likelihood of landing StackWays symbols. 

The second bonus game called the Super Stack Spins, requires 4 FS scatters in order to activate. This feature is more or less the same except for the fact that only Revealing StackWays symbols appear! Regular StackWays symbols are not present in this mode, increasing your likelihood of landing big wins. In addition, landing two or three FS symbols during either of the free spins bonus games will earn you 2 or 4 extra spins, respectively. 

The last feature of the game is the classic Bonus Buy menu. You’ll be able to purchase either one of the bonus games along with two optional FeatureSpins modes for the following stakes:​

  • BonusHunt FeatureSpins - Be 5 times more likely to trigger the bonus round for 3x your stake.
  • StackWays FeatureSpins - Each spin is guaranteed to provide at least 2 StackWays symbols for 40x your stake,
  • Stack Spins Bonus Game - Land 3 scatters for 100x your stake.
  • Super Stack Spins Bonus game - Land 4 scatters for 200x your stake.

Roshtein’s Take

Ronin StackWays does a much better job of showcasing the potential of the StackWays mechanic than its predecessor Mayan Stackways slot. The original StackWays game, although great, was a bit too complex and the mechanic itself got a little overshadowed. Ronin StackWays is a more straightforward release that highlights the core qualities of what Hacksaw is trying to accomplish. StackWays is fun and simple to understand but truth be told, the game could use some more variety in bonus features.
