Google defines ‘ronin’ as ‘a wandering samurai who had no lord or master’. Modern Japanese use ‘ronin’ to mean ‘a salaryman who is jobless or a secondary school graduate who has not yet been admitted to university.’ (Wikipedia) Ronin Stackways, a sequel to Mayan Stackways by Hacksaw Gaming, uses the earlier definition of the phrase.
Ronin Stackways depicts a luxurious feudal Japan with animals instead of humans, unlike Mayan Stackways. Hacksaw Gaming can create a captivating atmosphere, as shown in Ronin Stackways. It takes place at sunrise or sunset amid a purple, pink-lit valley with waterfalls, traditional houses, a remarkable statue, and chirping birds. This peaceful environment is perfect for meditation, martial arts, or online gaming. Choose a stake of 10 p/c to £/€100 and sharpen your sword.
An elaborate wooden building houses Ronin Stackways’ 5×4 game grid. The basic grid offers 1,024 chances to win. Having max Stackways symbols on each reel can activate 100,000 ways. Ronin Stackways differ strongly from Mayan Stackways statistically. Variability is 2 out of 5, putting it in the low/medium group, winning potential is decreased, and features have been toned down. I like that default RTP is up to 96.35%, with four alternative numbers based on bonus choice.
Katakana 10-to A five-card winning manner starts the paytable at 0.7 times the stake. Panda, bear, fox, tiger, and monkey are the five premium emblems. Hitting 5 high pay symbol ways returns 2–4 times the stake. Ronin Stackways has no wild symbol, therefore we’ll review Stackways and FS symbols.
Ronin Stackways’ Slot Features
All reels have Normal and Revealing Stackways symbols. Normal Stackways symbols can occupy a reel with 2, 3, or 4 symbols. Revealing Stackways symbols can fill a reel with 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, or 10 symbols. The stacked symbol is dependent on the reel symbols when the Stackways symbol triggers and the longest winning combination. If there are many equal-length winning combinations, the symbol is picked randomly. Note that stacking only occurs if the outcome wins.
Getting 3 FS symbols in the main game gives you 10 Stack Spins. The odds of getting Stackways symbols are higher in Stack Spins. Landing 2 or 3 FS symbols offers +2 or +4 free spins.
Super Stack Spins
The base game awards 10 Super Stack Spins for 4 FS symbols. This feature increases the possibility of landing Stackways symbols and only shows Revealing Stackways symbols. As previously, 2 or 3 FS symbols provide +2 or +4 free spins.

Ronin Stackways: Slot Results
Returning to the opening line, a game on the current Japanese meaning of ‘ronin’ traveling Tokyo and causing trouble to kill time until their next job may be fun. Hacksaw Gaming is well-suited to build a slot after playing Vending Machine and Toshi Video Club. Might try again. For present, Ronin Stackways offers a distinct experience from Mayan Stackways when all the components are added up.
Stackways symbols dominate both slots, but then they diverge. The less volatile arithmetic approach and smaller max win of 5,000x the stake make Ronin Stackways more ‘user-friendly’. It lacks Mayan Stackways’ coin symbol bonus round, making it simpler. Symbols are Ronin Stackways’ only mechanical offering, so hopefully you enjoy them.
Ronin Stackways is a beautiful, easy-to-see game beyond mechanics. Graphics are so good that they help cover holes produced by the slimmed-down feature set. Mayan Stackways was a richer, more tightly coiled, larger game, but Ronin Stackways feels like it might be ideal for people who like a less volatile, less complicated Stackways slot in a highly engaging atmosphere.
