Playing ETERNAL SHOGI is really simple. The game allows for a minimum stake of 0.1 and a maximum bet of 100. Players can click the three-line icon in the bottom right corner to display the pop-up game settings and information panel. Players can choose preferences like spin speed, audio settings, etc. by clicking the Settings icon when the pop-up screen appears. Players can view the paytable and paylines by clicking the "I" button.
Here is a list of the payouts matching three symbols on a payline:
Players receive a free spin "near miss" and a second chance to win when two high-paying symbols land on reels 1 and 2 or on reels 4 and 5, respectively.
The Free Spins bonus is activated by landing a three-of-a-kind higher-paying symbol combination on the reels that also includes the Scatter/Wild on reel 3. While the Leaves and the Wind symbols only grant eight free spins, the Waves and Mountain symbols grant 15 free spins. Players can earn up to 32 free spins and they can also be retriggered if a winning combination on the left and a winning combination on the right form. Winnings from the Free Spins bonus round are multiplied.
Victory multipliers range from 1x to 2x to 4x to 8x to 16x, and they rise with each victory for either side. Losses on either side cause the multiplier to reset to 1.
