When it comes to the reel set of Samurai Ken, they are decked with low-value and high-value on-theme symbols. The low-value group includes a samurai seal, samurai helmet, green monster claws, and a samurai sword.

The group of high-value symbols comprises four on-theme symbols, including monster eye, a dragon, samurai Ken himself, and a gold chest. All high-value symbols award payouts for combinations of three, four, and five matching symbols.
