This online slot video game Warlords: Crystals of Power is themed with the Middle Ages war symbols and warrior figures. It features fearsome warriors and fierce animals all symbolic of that age and the civilizations thriving by their war skills, such as the Vikings and the Samurai. This theme makes the slot game mechanics that much intricate and that much more fun! The game looks really nice, featuring good graphics and 3D animations. It is colorful and engaging, with good sounds effects and nice background music. The effects or the special features and bonus rolls are also very well done. The main theme of the game consists of the three warlords waging war for their place at the top, each of them having their own Scatter symbol to correspond. You will also find three different free spin symbols, again corresponding to the warlords. The official site itself states that in theory, the payout percentage of this video slot casino game is 96.89%. This means that on average, you will keep your coin value in the long run, but with just a little bit of luck you can shift that payout above 100% and end up earning. The game also has a certain strategy factor, so you can make your own luck.
The slot interface consists out of 3 horizontal rows, 5 vertical reels, and you have 30 bet lines available for your betting. These 3 different warlords, or classes if you will, are: The Barbarian Chief, the Priestess, and the Samurai Shogun. Each one has their own Free spins, Battle chances, Final Chance, Wild substitutions, Random Overlay Wilds, Re-Spins, Stacked, Scatter, and more corresponding symbols. Each of the three warlord classes has their own animal spirit too, or a familiar, and of course their own color to correspond and coordinate the Free Spin. You will easily learn to differentiate between all these.
Battle Stances: On
Here is where the game gets to become really exciting. It is in this feature that two warlords will combat each other, to prove who is stronger. This works in a way that when you get two different Scatter symbols, one will transform into the other in order for the re-spin to begin, determining the warlord winner. If you get two of the same Scatter symbols and 1 different from them, there is a 75% chance that the symbol embodied by the two same Scatter symbols will become an active symbol. If all 3 of them are different, to begin with, they will automatically all transform into the same one, before the re-spin can begin. Here the chance is equal for all three symbols to become the one active symbol, or better said the winner. And, then you will see five to nine clusters of medium symbols, which are spread on the reels for one spin.
Random Overlay Wild
While all of the features speak for themselves mostly, the Random Overlay Wild works like this:
- The Barbarian Hammer feature awards four Wild symbols. They are square shaped and appear on reels one through four.
- The Priestess Arrow feature gives two to five Wild Symbols, coming in on reels one through five.
- And, lastly, the Samurai Sword feature awards one to five symbols on reels one through four.
By activating this feature, all your random symbols will be replaced by these Wild ones. This can be done at any moment during your game.
Initial Scatter symbols reward each a corresponding feature. It is either x1 Multiplier, 3 Free Spins, or an x1 Sticky Wild. The type of the Scatter symbol directly determines which Free Spin is awarded to you. This all happens during the main slot roll. When 2 or more of these Scatter symbols appear, you are awarded a free re-spin. Scatter symbols appear only on reels 2 through 4, but they can appear on all five reels during these re-spins. This goes to show how important and valuable these re-spins really are. It actually increases your chance of obtaining certain awards and multiplying your wins. If all of your Scatter symbols happen to be of the same type, your re-spin will start immediately, but if they are of different types, they will begin transforming randomly, until all of them are of the same type and the re-spin can begin. This is a symbolic combat of the three warlords. The winning warlord is the one whose symbol becomes the active one.
This is the big one! There are three different free spin types, each one corresponding to the 3 different symbols or warlords if you prefer. The Barbarian’s color is blue and it awards a minimum of 9 Free Spins. The Priestess’ color is green and it gives you 7, and the Samurai’s color is red and it awards 5 free spins respectively. On each one of these Free Spins, the game will use its own reels and they will contain only the same type of Symbols corresponding to the one activate, or the winner. During these Free spin rounds, if you get any additional Scatter symbols, they will activate a different feature depending on the Free spin. Random Wild wins and Free Spin wins are automatically added to any bets in lines you have won. Free spins are always at the same level as the activation round, for coin worth and bet. Features won this way are automatically appearing before the calculation of winnings is done for that round. If however, more Scatter symbols appear in this feature, then it will be done for each symbol independently.
This is what follows after 2 (or more) Scatter symbols appear. The symbols remain in their original position, even during the re-spins, unless that particular symbol is the winner and the active one. If 3 symbols appear and all 3 are different, the free re-spin will begin automatically.
A Final Chance
If you’ve triggered the re-spin when 2 different Scatter symbols appeared and one won over the other, you will also receive a random bonus feature. This can be a Scatter symbol randomly placed in a position on the reels, or a coin win reward worth three to a hundred times your initial bet. This part is one of the juicier ones obviously. If however, you get another Scatter symbol, you get another free spin without more re-spins awarded. If on this last spin you get another scatter symbol, and all 3 are as the active one, the Free Spins round will commence. Coins won in this round are automatically added to any previous bet line win.
You will have ten bet levels in total, but your bet limits and coin values can both be adjusted. The minimum coin value is 0.01 and the maximum is 1, while the bet limits are anywhere between 0.15€ to 150€. The maximum win in a single default bet is 3000 € or 3000 coins in a single bet line, which makes it quite appealing not only to players with a limited bankroll but for high-rollers alike.
