At first glance
Another new slot announced by Net Entertainment, ‘Warlords: Crystals of Power’, from the start looks like a visually outstanding game. Gameplay is completely original, with new, stunning graphics in what looks to be one of the most refreshing slots to be released in a while. The slot has a heavy fantasy theme, featuring three characters: The Druid Priestess, the Samurai and the Barbarian all of which fight against each other in the game t0 show who’s boss. All symbols in the game relate to an individual character, and the characters themselves appear as stacked reels. There are 3 scatter symbols which also relate to each character, and a wild symbol represented by a piece of jewelry. The game consists of 5 reels and 30 paylines, with the maximum win being 6,666x the bet. The theoretical return to player (RTP) is 96.89%, so the game is considered medium to high variance.
There are two main features in this game: random overlay wilds and free spins. The overlay wilds are triggered randomly while playing in the base game. There are three events that can happen:
- Samurai Sword feature: Awards between 2-5 wilds on reels 1-4
- Barbarian Hammer feature: Awards 4 wilds in a square on reels 1-4.
- Priestess Arrow feature: Awards between 2-5 wilds on reels 1-5.
The free spins are triggered by landing any 3 scatter symbols. Matching three of the same colour scatters will trigger that characters mode, however landing 3 scatters of different colours will send the
characters into battle and the winner will decide the type of spins awarded. Another nice touch is that if the player only lands 2 scatters, the Last Chance feature is awarded, where you are able to win a coin award up to 100x or land another scatter to trigger free spins/battle mode. The different modes in the free spins are as follows:
- Samurai free spins: Awards 5 free spins, any scatter that lands will become a locked wild.
- Barbarian free spins: Awards 9 free spins, with ‘mask’ symbol removed. Landing a scatter will give 3 more free spins.
- Priestess free spins: Awards 7 free spins. Landing a scatter during these spins will increase the overall win multiplier by 1x (multiplies the total win).
