As far as the winning symbols go, you will see low-value card suits as well as better paying phoenix birds, dragons, turtles, and tigers. The wild performs its standard symbol replacement duties. The scatter triggers the multi-level free spins, which is the notable feature of Yokozuna Clash. If you land 5 OAK, the Sumo Clash feature comes into play and up to 4 standard symbols are added to the reels.
Riku adds up to 2 wilds on the middle reels
Haru gives you a x2 or x3 multiplier
Land scatters on the first and the last reel in one spin to trigger the Tournament Free Spins feature. You will not have a preset number of free spins, but a battle meter.
Before the start of the free spins round, either Riku or Haru will be assigned as your sumo and he will fight two opponents. Whenever your sumo scores a win, the meter moves up.
Both Riku and Haru progress the battle meter by two bars to the right. Haru adds up to x4 multiplier in all fights, while Riku adds up to 3 wilds in the first two fights and 4 wilds in the final battle.
If you land a win from left to right, your sumo attacks the boss and progresses to the right. If you win from right to left your opponent pushes you back. The feature ends when the battle bar turns all red or blue. If you make it to the final fight, you will face the Demon sumo. If you emerge victorious, your winnings are doubled.
After the Game of Gladiators, this is the most complicated free spins feature we have seen lately. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, though. If you are fed up with the no-brainer free spins rounds, you will fall for Yokozuna Clash. If you are just looking for a title to kill time, you’d be probably better off playing a fruit slot.
Yokozuna Clash goes live on August 22.
