iSoftBet, the leading online games supplier and content aggregator, welcomes players to channel their inner zen and follow in the path of the Samurai in new release, Rising Samurai: Hold & Win.

The 5-reel title provides 576 ways to win in the base game, which can be boosted all the way up to 3,087 ways during the Free Spins round, as extra rows can be unlocked above reels two, three and four.

Four Samurai Warriors are the top-paying symbols in the game, awarding players up to 12.5x the bet for landing five of the red warrior, while the Shuriken star features as the Wild and can replace any other symbol.

At least five Samurai coins are required to trigger the Hold & Win Respins, where these symbols can be worth up to 10x the bet, while Mini, Major, Maxi and Grand coins, worth 25x, 50x, 100x, and a massive 250x, can also be collected.

Three or more Bonus symbols awards Free Spins, with special Samurai Booster symbols either opening extra rows over the middle reels to increase the number of ways to win, or boosting the win multiplier, which is then applied to all remaining free spins.

The Hold & Win title also features a random in-game Katana Modifier, where the Rising Samurai can appear over the reels to award a guaranteed winning spin, or launch either Free Spins or Rising Samurai Respins.

Rising Samurai: Hold & Win marks the latest addition to iSoftBet’s expansive Hold & Win collection, following in the footsteps of popular recent releases, Plunderin’ Pirates and The Magic Orb.

Mark Claxton, Head of Games at iSoftBet, said: “Rising Samurai sees us steering the Hold & Win offering in a new direction by drawing inspiration from Japan and the ways of its noble warriors.

“The title goes above and beyond in terms of the impressive number of modifiers and special symbols it provides, giving players every chance of landing an impressive win while they enjoy the exceptional graphics and animations on display.”

The ongoing war in Ukraine, high energy costs and huge uncertainty regarding Germany’s economic development – in spite of the numerous problems, game companies in Germany are feeling confident about the year ahead. This is the conclusion of the game association’s industry barometer based on a survey of its members and published on the occasion of the general meeting of game – the German Games Industry Association. According to the barometer, around half of all game companies (48 per cent) are expecting the German game industry to develop positively or even very positively over the next twelve months, while just 16 per cent are assuming that the opposite will be the case. The companies have an even more positive view of their own prospects, with just under two thirds of the companies surveyed (64 per cent) saying they are expecting their own development to be positive or very positive in the year to come. A mere 9 per cent are anticipating a negative development. This optimism is also reflected in workforce developments – more than half of all game companies (52 per cent) say they expect their employee headcount to develop positively in the year to come. Only approximately 6 per cent are anticipating a negative development. A look at positions that currently remain unfilled suggests that finding skilled workers is not easy, with just under one in two game companies (49 per cent) saying they currently have vacancies. The number of vacancies illustrates how high demand is for skilled workers in the German game industry – 10 to 20 per cent of vacancies remain unfilled at almost one in four game companies (23 per cent), with a further 7 per cent of companies even having over 20 per cent unfilled vacancies.

‘The various economic challenges are leaving their mark on the game industry too. The generally uncertain economic environment or the rising costs are weighing heavily on game companies’ plans. game association’s industry barometer nevertheless indicates a general sense of optimism looking ahead to 2023 and clearly shows that the German game industry has really thrown itself into the race to catch up with other game locations around the world,’ says Felix Falk, Managing Director of game – the German Games Industry Association. ‘Overall, we can therefore expect further growth in the global game market in the years to come. The parameters for game development in Germany, which have finally been improving for a few years, will be decisive here. The German government’s promotion of games remains an important foundation, and the temporary stoppage of this fortunately did not bring this positive development to an end after all. To enable the industry to remain competitive globally, the funding provided must be based on the actual needs and be increased to 100 million euros. At the same time, further steps need to be taken, as already outlined in the federal government’s strategy for the game industry.’
