Ronin is a classic, 5-reel max 20-pay line pokie from RTG. This game was a real ground-breaker in the early days of online pokies and helped establish the RTG online pokies template. The theme of the game is one of the era when Japan was ruled by feudal lords, which accounts for a 600 year period of history between 1185 and 1868. A Ronin was a free samurai warrior who'd had his freedom bequeathed upon him through the death or shame of his master. A samurai was supposed to commit suicide if his master died or suffered great shame, and a warrior who chose to keep his stomach sword-free instead was known as 'ronin' which meant 'vagrant' or 'homeless'.
This pokie has for its symbols the playing card values nine to ace written in a kind of 'Japanesesque' script, plus other symbols associated with Japanese feudal times, including horses, samurai helmets and temples. You can select your coin size from 0.01 to 0.50 for each spin, and the number of lines you want in play from one to all twenty. Once you're happy with your wager, hit the spin button. To win, you need to land at least three identical symbols in sequence on an active pay line from the left-hand reel.
A 'koku' symbol ('koku' is a Japanese unit of volume that originally measured the quantity of rice needed to feed one person for one year) acts as the wild symbol but only appears on the central reel. It substitutes for all other symbols aside from the scatter, and all wins containing a 'koku' are doubled.
A ronin is the scatter symbol and landing two or more anywhere on the reels leads to a cash prize.
If you land a koku symbol AND at least two ronin symbols anywhere on the reels you're awarded one of three bonus features:

This classic-looking game may now be over a decade old, but the bonus features and progressive jackpot mean it's still worth a spin.
