Judo Ferret Slots

Judo-FerretJudo Ferret has a rather weird mixed inspiration in its theme, using ferrets as judo experts, warriors that seem quite fierce actually. The use of animals as main characters instead of humans is not unusual though, being a standard technique these days and being visible in a lot of slots. There are even some martial arts themed slots which have other animals as stars, but this is the only one to focus both on judo and on ferrets. Nuworks created this slot machine.

With the game having 5 reels and 25 bet lines, it feels rather average in this area, but it makes up for it with the free spins, with multipliers of up to 5x, scatter symbols and wilds. The most you can win is $7,500.

Features of Judo Ferret

You’re not going to get anything new in this area, but having wilds, scatters, multipliers and free spins all in place, and offering good prizes, is something that more slot machines should offer.

First, the fierce Judo Ferret, a master at this particular type of martial art, that is also used as the wild feature. As the wild, it will act as a substitute for regular symbols, helping them form their own combinations whenever this is a possibility. The wild will apply a 3x multiplier to every single combo win that is formed with its help. Ideally, the game would offer you combinations that are formed only out of wilds, as this gives you the best payouts, some as high as 7,500 coins.


The Gong symbol has the game logo on it and it is the scatter of Judo Ferret. Since as a scatter it can appear anywhere on the reels, it will not need the symbols to be on fixed lines. It’s sufficient to get 3 or more Gongs and you will get paid, up to 200x the total bet.

Free Games Feature

The free spins of Judo Ferret will offer you free spins at varying multipliers. You decide which of the three options you take, but first you need a minimum of three Gong scatters to get the feature going.


The options are three, including 6 free spins at 5x multipliers, 10 spins with 3x multipliers, and 15 free spins with 2x multipliers. You choose the one you prefer. Retriggering the free spins adds an additional 5 rounds, with the multiplier remaining the same.

You also have a chance that you will get Stacked Wilds for the duration of the free spins, but that is not guaranteed.

Betting options and jackpots

The slot’s betting range starts at $0.01 and it can go to $25. A coin is sufficient to spin the reels, but only one line will be active. With 25 coins, which have values of up to $1, you get all 25 lines.

The wild Judo Ferret is responsible for offering the biggest payout, of $7,500. Since multipliers of 5x are offered during free spins, it could probably go up to $37,500.

Design and symbols

With the exception of the Ferret icons which are used as martial artists, the rest of the design feels themed around Judo and martial arts in general, with a Japanese inspiration that is clear thanks to the design choices. The game’s graphics feel like they had plenty of work done to them. They’re entertaining and they look good, with the drawing style bringing you cartoon style characters.


Symbols: Judo Ferret (7,500 coins, wild), Gong Logo (scatter, 200x the bet), Yellow Fighter (2,500 coins), Green Fighter (1,500 coins), Champion Belt (1,000 coins), Money Bag (500 coins), Ace (250 coins), King (250 coins), Queen (250 coins), Jack (100 coins), 10 (100 coins) and 9 (100 coins).

Is It Worth Playing?

You don’t need to be a fan of martial arts to enjoy this slot, you just need to have a soft spot for cute furry animals. The Japanese inspired theme helps with the appeal as well though, as do the multipliers which can come in a couple of different ways.
