Wataa! Slots

Wataa!Wataa seems to be the sound that kung fu warriors make when they fight, so it’s a very good choice in a game where this martial art is the main focus. There are two heroes that fight ninjas in this game, and they’re called Trevor and Charlie. Trevor is a human that seems to be enjoying his food, while Charlie is a cat that looks even more dangerous. Wager Gaming went for the funny angle with this slot, and I for one enjoyed it.

In Wataa, you’re going to discover a game with the usual 5 reels & 25 win lines, but also with free spins that have their own features, with wilds and scatters, plus payouts of $50,000 or less.

Features of Wataa!

The features of Wataa consist in wild and scatter symbols, multipliers and free spins which can behave differently depending on the kind of feature you choose for them.

Our two heroes, Trevor and Charlie, are both wild symbols and they make appearances on their own reels. You get Trevor only on the 3rd reel, while Charlie appears on both the 2nd and the 4th reels. These wilds do not award payouts directly, but they do help other symbols create their own combinations, by substituting for them. The Trevor wild also has a 2x multiplier, used in the base game and in the Charlie feature. During the Trevor feature that multiplier is significantly higher.


Next, we have the Burger symbol, which is the slot’s scatter. As the scatter, this symbol is responsible for the start of the free spins and it also gives away its own payouts. Instead of multiplying the line wager, the scatter multiplies the total bet by 2x to 100x, depending on how many Burgers were present that round.

Free Games Feature

The requirement in place here is for three Burgers to be present, and that will trigger 15 free spins. In order to start these spins, you have to pick which feature you prefer, Trevor or Charlie.

If you pick Trevor Feature, you get extra Trevor wilds on the 3rd reel and a random multiplier for the wild symbol, which is at 5x, 8x or 10x.

The Charlie feature only has the base 2x multiplier for the Trevor wild, but you do get more free spins. They are offered each time a Charlie symbol appears, and you get 1, 2 or 3 additional free spins from them.

Betting options and jackpots

If you want to start playing this game, you have to decide first on how many lines you want to bet. Each coin has a value between $0.10 and $10, so pick a strategy that works for you, if you can’t simply use the maximum bet of $250.

The Ninja symbol gets you 5,000 coins, or $50,000, but Trevor the wild can double it to $100,000, if it gets involved. This is for the base game, as the free spins can have an even bigger multiplier, of 10x, so in theory you could get to $500,000 with the payout.

Design and symbols

I loved the game’s theme, even though I’m only partially convinced by the design. The background picture shows you a couple of buildings, with ninjas everywhere, ready to attack. The reels are white, there are standard playing card icons, but at least you get some funny looking symbols when it comes to the main characters or the ninjas.

Symbols: Trevor (wild), Charlie (wild), Hamburger (100x bet, scatter), Ninjas (5,000x), Training Dummy (2,000x), Nunchuck (200x), Martial Arts Manual (200x), Ace (150x), King (150x), Queen (150x), Jack (150x), Ten (100x) and Nine (100x).


Is It Worth Playing?

It’s funny, it pays well, it has all the right features and more. I enjoyed it and I’m sure you will feel the same way.

The Wataa! slot machine is offered through the Wager Gaming platform, so if you want to play it for real or just to practice, look out for casinos that use it.
