Legendary Sumo is an online slot machine from Endorphina. We often laugh about sumo wrestling. Fat Japanese in some kind of mega tanga briefs, trying to push each other out of the ring. Sumo is a serious business in Japan. Rikishis competing against each other symbolize rival gods fighting against each other.
Legendary Sumo mainly has an original bonus game, where the winner of every spin brings you Wild symbols, which gives you up to 6,000 times your stake per bonus spin.
You play Legendary Sumo with a minimum of 1 and a maximum of 21 active paylines. You play a minimum of 0.01 CAD and a maximum of 1 CAD per payline. This makes Legendary Sumo a 1 cent slot machine. You play with a minimum of 0.01 CAD per spin and with a maximum of 21 CAD per spin.
The 'high win symbols' are five sumo wrestlers. Maximum payouts range from 500 times the stake per payline to 3,000 times the stake per payline.

There are also five 'low win symbols'. These are the well-known playing card symbols. These give you 100 to 250 times the bet per payline per five of a kind. The dragon mask counts as a Wild symbol for all of these symbols.
After a winning spin, you can play the Risk Game. This is the standard Endorphina Risk Game. You get five cards in front of you. One of these is open and four covered. The open card is the dealer's card. The intention is that you draw a higher card from the four face-up cards than the dealer. You can exit the Risk Game without playing, so you can take advantage of that.
Is there a low card? Then the chance that you win is so great that the theoretical payout percentage is higher than 100 percent. It is smart to play the Risk Game because this has a favourable effect on the overall theoretical payout percentage of the Legendary Sumo slot machine. A low card means a five or lower.
Is there a 6, 7 or 8? Then the payout percentage is 100 percent. Then the general rule of thumb applies to these types of “Double Up features”. It doesn't matter whether you play it or not. You win as often as you lose. If there is a high card face up on the table, the chances of your winnings are so small that the theoretical payout percentage of the Risk Game will drop below 100 percent. A high card means a 9 or higher.
The Risk Game payout percentage ranges from 42 percent for a bait to 162 percent for a 2.
The cup is the "scattered bonus symbol". If you spin three, four or five “scattered bonus symbols”, you release the bonus. These bonus symbols do not have to be on an active payline to trigger the free spins bonus.
The number of free spins depends on the number of bonus symbols with which you trigger the bonus game:
- three bonus symbols are good for 10 free spins.
- four bonus symbols will give you 20 free spins.
- five bonus symbols give you 50 free spins.
Each spin determines which sumo wrestler won the match. This is the wrestler that most often appears on your screen. All the places this sumo wrestler stands on will turn into a Wild. This Wild is glued to the symbol. Wild symbols remain as long as sumo wrestlers are spun in those spots.

During the free spins bonus, you play with a multiplier of twice. All winnings are therefore paid out double. Do you spin at least three cups during the bonus? Then you get extra free spins.
Endorphina seems to have recovered a bit with Legendary Sumo. Once upon a time, Endorphina was a promising developer who came up with original slots like Satoshi's Secret. After that, decay occurred. Endorphina mainly came up with many 13-in-a-dozen slots and clones of well-known slots.
Legendary Sumo is finally a slot machine again with original gameplay. In the bonus game, sumo matches determine where Wilds go. The payout percentage is an excellent 96 percent. It should be noted, however, that optimal use of the Risk Game is included in this 96 percent.
