Shaman is a November 2014 spiritual-inspired video slot made by Endorphina. This developer has filed Shaman under the “mystic” theme, alongside: Minotaurus (March 2015), Voodoo (December 2016), Voodoo Dice (June 2019), Fairy Tale (March 2015), Temple Cats (December 2015), Undine’s Deep (October 2014), and The Vampires (October 2014).

Shaman’s rival games include: Shaman’s Luck (March 2016) from Cozy, Shaman Spirit (September 2017) from Eyecon, and Shaman’s Gold (April 2018) from NetoPlay. The noun shaman is especially associated with a male native North American who, through mind alteration, manipulates the spiritual realm. The wild is not entirely involved in winning combinations; the other ordinary symbols require three, four, or five combinations.
Shaman Game Characteristics
Shaman has a partitioned brown 5X3 grid that is set on a stringed wooden frame—its top corners are fitted with long red-and-white cloth strips—and is embedded on a starry dreamy blue concept of a spiritual realm. There are eight symbols, an expanding shaman, ten adjustable paylines, seven denominations, a choice of six bets per line, 420 total bets, no free spins, a side game, and regularly pays from $0.05 to $10000.00.
Shaman has one special symbol and seven ordinary symbols. Special symbol: the wild-and-substitute is a shaman who is dressed in a maroon shamanic cloth, holding a medicine stick, and gazing towards a full moon in supplication.
Ordinary symbols: a close-up image of a shaman beside a cream tambourine; a shamanka holding incense; a gray wolf; a cream shamanic drum beside a brown drumstick; a white fang necklace; a beaded brown dream catcher; and red-and-white cloth strips on crisscrossing sticks.
Shaman’s coin values: $0.01, $0.02, $0.05, $0.1, $0.2, $0.5, and $1. Shaman’s “bet” per line: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 10. Minimum bet: $0.01. Maximum bet: $100.00.
Betting $100.00 is associated with the highest range of Shaman payouts for three, four, and five winning combinations. The shaman beside tambourine pays $200.00, $1000.00, and $10000.00. The entranced shamanka, or gray wolf pays $100.00, $600.00, and $5000.00. The shamanic drum/drumstick, or fang necklace, or dreamcatcher, or hang cloth strips pay $50.00, $400.00, and $2000.00.
Each regular win prompts the “TAKE RISK” and “TAKE WIN” icons to replace the hamburger button and spin icons, respectively. When players click “TAKE WIN”, they overlook the side game—the current win is not gambled. By clicking “TAKE RISK”, players risk nullifying their current in their quest for doubling it. The value of the leftmost face up playing card determines the result of the player’s choice among the four face down playing cards—the gamble amount is nullified if the guessed face value is comparatively lower, whereas the gambled amount is doubled if the guessed face value is comparatively higher. Shaman’s non-progressively jackpot is $10000.00.
The features of the good Shaman software include a dynamic paytable, turbo spins, statistics, 10-1000 autospins, and left-hand and right-hand modes. Sounds effects: jingling, chinking, shamanic mantra, rhythmic drumming, and eerie noises. Animated 3D graphics: swinging dreamcatcher, shaking fang necklace, wolf segueing into a spirit animal, fluttering cloth strips, and the shamanka’s incense burning ritual.
