Travel to a faraway land to battle for vast riches on the slot from NetEnt. Warlords: Crystals of Power is letting you join three medieval warriors in their fight for supremacy and control of the treasures the land has to offer. The Barbarian, the Priestess and the Samurai will showcase their battle skills in a flurry of random and bonus features that can lead to wins of up to 6,666 times your stake.
Warlords: Crystals of Power is a video slot with five reels, three rows and 30 fixed pay lines. Wins are awarded for three to five matching symbols on a line from left to right only. Battle it out on desktop or mobile from 0.15 to 150 credits per spin. The game has medium to high variance with a generous RTP of 96.89%.
Load the game to find yourself in the midst of an ongoing battle. Impressive 3D graphics adapt in colour and design based on the action on the reels while stunning animations and sounds will convey the intensity of a real battle. The reels are dominated by the three warriors appearing in full reel height as well as their battle masks and what you could call their personal pets.
The pay symbols start at the low end with three battle masks, associated by colour to the respective warrior – blue for the barbarian, green of the priestess and red for the samurai. They are followed by their animal creatures – boar with blue background, panther with green background and wolf with red background. A single five of a kind will pay between 2.66x to 8x your stake. The three warriors – Barbarian, Priestess and Samurai – are the premiums, appearing fully stacked at all times and awarding 10x to 20x your bet when five land on a line.
An intricate gold-encased icon with the three Crystals of Power in blue, green and red colours is the wild symbol, substituting for all regular pay symbols. Hitting five on a line will award 20x your stake. The game has three scatters – blue, green and red coloured battle standards matching those of the respective warriors. In the initial stage, the scatters appear on reels two, three and four only.
NetEnt went to great length to create an exhilarating slot which did not stop with graphics and sounds. They packed it to the brim with an array of random and bonus features. Maybe somewhat complex at the beginning to understand how they work out but it will all make sense once you have experienced them a few times.
The reel battle starts with three Random Overlay Wild features, each awarding a number of wilds in different forms and colours based on which warrior triggered the feature at the start of a base game spin.
The next features evolve around the scatters and what we call teaser spins. They will come into play when you do not land minimum three scatters in a spin to directly trigger the free spins feature.
If you thought the barrage of random features would be all, then think again as NetEnt also added not less than three free spin modes, each associated to one of the three warriors. In ascending order of volatility and win potential, you will see the Barbarian round triggering most often followed by the Samurai and Priestess rounds. Worth noting is that you cannot retrigger the features.
The Barbarian Free Spins round awards minimum nine free spins. The triggering scatters are locked in place and the reels respin to potentially land more scatters. This continues until no new scatters hit on a respin. Each is worth three free spins with the maximum for a full screen peaking at 45 free spins. There are no multipliers or modifiers active in the feature but any further scatter landing will add again +3 free spins, no limits.
The Samurai Free Spins round consists of five free spins which cannot be retriggered. Any wild or scatter landing on a free spin as well as the triggering scatters turn into sticky wilds for the duration of the feature.
The Priestess Free Spins feature award seven free spins which cannot be retriggered but come with a progressive multiplier. Any scatter appearing on a free spin will increase the multiplier by x1. At the end of the round, the accumulated multiplier will be applied to the total winnings from the round.
If you are into intense reels battles with high volatility and a flurry of features, then Warlords: Crystals of Power is the perfect choice. The game is superbly designed with very authentic animations and sounds that will keep you engaged and in suspense in any slotting session.
