Legend of Daruma Online Slot UK

We've seen a rush of new online slots released featuring an Oriental theme in recent years, with Pragmatic Play in particular being responsible for several of them. What was once a niche genre within the online slot games world becoming flooded with options, there's a risk that the marketplace for them is becoming saturated, and new releases struggling to break through the noise. The sheer volume of slots that now exist for those who enjoy an Oriental theme says a lot about the appeal of Far Eastern themes and imagery, but it's possible to have too much of a good thing if every new release looks exactly like what's come before it. Mutuel Play doesn't have that problem with Legend of Daruma.

Released in November 2018, Legend of Daruma has taken the high-brow approach to representing Japanese culture, theming itself entirely around the iconic Daruma dolls. In Japanese culture, the importance of the dolls is closely linked to the origin of Buddhism. They’re wooden and colorful, and usually separated into several pieces which can be rearranged to change the appearance of the doll. Daruma dolls are often gifted between friends and family to bring good luck, and are often sold at Buddhist temples to encourage the faithful to set goals for themselves and stick to them. Online slots players love a good luck token, and so once they understand the theme they’re bound to feel an attraction to this slot!

Mutuel Play is well known for creating slots which have beautiful visuals, but they may have exceeded even their own high standards with Legend of Daruma. The loud and cartoonish graphics have manga feel to them, with the 5x4 reels set into the frame of a temple, featuring dragon heads emerging from the roof. Every single symbol has been given the anime treatment; even the playing cards which make up the lower values. Above them, every symbol comes from deep within Japanese heritage. There are fans, coins, and Japanese lilies, and then above them are the Daruma dolls themselves in white, black, blue, green and purple. The slot will helpfully tell you what each color traditionally represents when you make winning lines with them.

There are three further symbols available within the slot; a gold wild Daruma, a red wild Daruma and a dragon, which serves as a scatter. The red wild Daruma replaces everything but the other wild and the scatter to create paying lines. The golden one also replaces everything but the other wild and the scatter but also triggers a small bonus feature whenever it appears. 

Legend of Daruma Developer - Mutuel Play

Mutuel Play, who offer no explanation of why their name is spelled the way it is, are newcomers to the UK online slots market, having been founded in Surrey in 2016. As a modern developer, they create all of their online slots using HTML5 coding to ensure that they can be played as smoothly on a mobile device as they can on a laptop or desktop. That's the way of the future, and we expect all developers to go that way eventually. Mutuel Play appears to be ahead of the curve.

By their own admission, at this stage in their development, they're keen to work with other developers and operators to bring their slots to market; they're not yet established enough to handle distribution on their own. In the case of Legend of Daruma, Mutuel Play worked with Leander Games to ensure they were reaching as wide an audience as possible. There are currently only ten slots in their catalog, all of which share elements of the same design template, but touch on a range of genres such as the space-themed Cosmic Fusion.

We at Rose Slots know potential when we see it, and we’re looking forward to seeing what Mutuel Play can do when they have a few more years solid experience under their belts! You may probably like to play Cosmic Fusion slotFair and Square and The Showman online slot from Mutuel Play

Legend of Daruma Slot Bonus Features

There are four bonus features in Legend of Daruma; two which can be triggered from the base game, and a further two which can happen at random. We'll deal with the random ones first.

Fireball is a reel modifier which can happen on any spin, whether you’ve found a paying line as well. As the name suggests, a fireball is launched at the reels, and as it scorches its way across it will turn any symbol it passes into a red Daruma wild. Your reels will then be re-assessed to see if any new wins are possible, and if so they’ll be paid out.

Daruma Pop-Up Wild can also happen at any time, and also involves the red Daruma wild. When it triggers itself, a giant red Daruma will shoot up from below the reels and cover an entire reel, turning the entire reel wild and again causing all of your reels and lines to be re-assessed for new wins.

The gold Daruma is a little more powerful than its red equivalent because it can grant you a Re-spin. Whenever a gold Daruma appears, you have a free re-spin, and after the spin, the symbol will move one reel to the left. Obviously, the best place for the symbol to appear is on reel five, because then you're guaranteed a minimum of four re-spins! If a new gold Daruma appears while this is going on, it will be counted as part of the sequence, and the re-spins will continue until there are no more gold Darumas on screen. The symbol remains wild for as long as it's present on the reels, so if it's part of a long winning line, it will continue to replicate that winning line as it moves along it.

If that’s not enough for you, Legend of Daruma also offers Free Spins. To trigger this feature, you need to land at least three of the dragon scatter symbols on any one spin. You'll get eight free spins in return for your three dragons. Four dragons are good for twelve free spins, and a fifth brings you sixteen. The gold Daruma will also add to your number of spins if it appears on the reels, using the system described above. While the free spins are active, the gold Daruma will become a Colossal Symbol, possibly covering all four rows.

This is one of the best-looking and most original online slots we’ve played in the last twelve months, and it has plenty of bonus feature fun alongside the entertaining base game.
