Megaways Bushido Princess Slot Review 2024

Bushido Princess from Kalamba Games takes us east for a visually stunning Megaways adventure.

Kalamba Games have dubbed Megaways Bushido Princess as a game that transports you to a magical world of honour, bravery and excitement, but will it be as exciting as they claim? The Megaways market is very competitive, and to stand out they’ll need something rather special.

We’re entering the Dojo ourselves to see if Megaways Bushido Princess is as fun as it is beautiful, and as deadly as it is immersive.

Hyperbet Feature

Before you begin spinning, you will be able to choose between 2 Hyperbet feature levels, as follows.

  • Bet Level 1 – The max Multiplier value for each Expanding Wild is set at x8, and each Free Spins round begins with 6 Free Spins.
  • Bet Level 2 – The max Multiplier value for each Expanding Wild is set at x10, and each Free Spins round begins with 8 Free Spins. K-Cash values are also enhanced.

Activating Bet Level 2 will automatically Double your current bet.

Expanding Wild Columns

During the base game, each time a Wild symbol lands in view, there is a possibility of it expanding to cover the entire reel it is on. Once expanded, it will reveal a Multiplier value that is equal to the number of reel positions in the triggering column.


Once a Wild symbol has expanded to fully cover an entire reel, it will lock into its current position and a Respin will begin.

The number of awarded Respins is equal to the number of expanded Wilds that are currently in view on the reels. During Respins, there is a chance of landing additional Expanding Wild symbols.

After each Respin, the Multiplier that is applied to all present Expanding Wilds will increase if they haven’t yet reached their maximum multiplier value yet. The maximum Multiplier value depends on your Hyperbet level at the time of triggering Respins.


During the base game, special symbols known as K-Cash symbols can land randomly across the reels. K-Cash symbols will land with a random Cash Value attached to them.

If more than 1 K-Cash symbol lands at the same time as at least 1 Expanded Wild column, the total Cash Value of each K-Cash symbol is awarded. This is repeated for each Expanded Wild column on the reels.

Right to Left

If reels 2, 3, and 4 are fully covered by Expanding Wild columns, the game may randomly pay ways from right to left, starting from the rightmost reel.

Bushido Princess Free Spins

Landing 1 Bonus Scatter on reels 1 and 5 during the base game automatically triggers the Free Spins round. The number of Free Spins awarded depends on which Hyperbet Level you are currently on at the time of the triggering spin.

During Free Spins, once an Expanding Wild column is triggered, no Respin will occur. Instead, a special Meter will appear above the reel with marks that indicate the number of Free Spins the Expanding Wild column will remain in play for.

During each consecutive Free Spin, a mark is removed from the Meter. When there are no marks left, the Expanding Wild column will be removed.

Each time an Expanded Wild column triggers, an additional +3 Free Spins are awarded.

Megaways Bushido Princess: Our Verdict

Megaways Bushido Princess impressed us with more than just its immersive and stunning graphics. It’s good news if you were a fan of Quickspin’s Sakura Fortune Series, though maybe not so much if you’re a Megaways purist with a non-negotiable requirement for 117,649 ways to win.

The maximum number of winning ways in Megaways Bushido Princess is 16,000, which is a far cry from the conventional Megaways norm, but Megaways Bushido Princess makes up for its lack of winning ways with a number of enthralling features.

HyperBet features need to be active if you’re to benefit from the x10 Wilds, but Respin and the Kalamba K-Cash Features come as standard. All of the main features are quite capable, yet Free Spins is where the main event is.

During Free Spins expanding wilds come into play to make it even more exciting, and it’s backed up statistically by Megaways Bushido Princess’ 30,000x max win.

Overall, Megaways Bushido Princess is a well-rounded slot with plenty of appeal. It doesn’t reinvent the wheel, but it’s enough to garner some attention.
