Sometimes when playing a slot machine online, you have to stop and admire the work that goes into the game. That is exactly what will happen to you when you play Warlords – Crystals of Power. This slot from NetEnt is nothing short of incredible, and there are many parts that feel more like a video game than a virtual slot machine. The theme is very well thought through and the visuals are just amazing. More than that, though, the gameplay is fast-paced and exciting, and there are many great features that make this game one of a kind.
Warlords – Crystals of Power is structured as a three-row and five-reel slot game, but you really wouldn’t notice that at first glance. The stacked symbols break up the traditional grid pattern and that adds to the ambiance of the game. At a respectable
of 96.89%, playing on the fixed thirty paylines pays out very often, making this game very exciting.
To bet in Warlords Crystals of Power, you don’t have to make too many decisions in terms of paylines because they are non-negotiable. You do have control over the bet levels and coin values, though, which makes it possible to make small to large bets to suit your play style and goals.
As we mentioned before, the theme of this game is similar to a video game. There are three main characters who are warriors in their own right, and they each come from a different corner of the world. There is a Barbarian, a Priestess, and a Samurai and there are special attributes of the game specifically linked to them.
There is, of course, a Wild in this game, and it seems to behave like a normal Wild. It takes the place of all other symbols in the game except the Scatter symbol, and when combinations are made with it, the payouts are higher. It doesn’t take long to figure that out, and although the Wild does do those things, it does a lot more, too.
The Random Overlay Wild is a nice feature that takes the theme from one of the central characters. At any time this mode can be activated and when it is, any one of the three styles can show up. The Random Overlay Wild for the Barbarian comes in the shape of four Wilds together in a grid pattern, then for the Samurai anywhere from two to five Wilds can show up on reels one to four. A similar thing happens with the Priestess Wild, but hers ends up on reels one to five. The best thing about this unique feature is that it can happen at any time, and when it does you are guaranteed a couple of Wilds, at least.
There are three Scatters as well. One colour for each of the characters and they all give out different awards. The fun thing about these is that if you get scatters that are not the same colour, a battle ensues to find out which colour will prevail. This adds to the excitement and is something we have not seen before in a slot game.
If you like video games, you are going to love this slot. It is beautifully-executed and exciting at the same time. It is definitely on our “must play” list.
