The mean streets of 1970s New York is the setting for The Warriors, a 5 reel, 243 ways to win slot from iSoftBet. The cult classic movie saw the gang known as The Warriors falsely accused of killing gangland’s Mr Big and their attempts to make it back to their home turf of Coney Island. The slot version comes with a bonus feature that offers up to 50 free spins and multipliers that can top 5x. Join the battle from between 50p and £25 per spin.
The visuals in The Warriors hark back to the days when New York was a very dangerous place – the reels are set against a dimly lit subway station and include graffiti style playing card symbols. They’re joined by photos of 4 of the main characters from the film – Swan, Cowboy, Cochise and Mercy. Female gangster Mercy is the top payer, offering jackpots of 20 times your total stake.
Swan and Mercy together form the wild symbol which substitutes for everything apart from the bonus. The wild only appears on reels 2 through 5. Every time it forms part of a winning combination, that payout will be doubled.
The Warriors logo is the bonus symbol- when it lands on the odd numbered reels, you’ll receive a payout of 5 times your total stake as well as triggering the Bonus feature. Up to 50 free spins are on offer here. Look out too for stacked symbols which are in play during the feature. Every win during the feature will be boosted by a random multiplier up to 5x. See what you’ve been awarded courtesy of the meter below the reels.
As you’d hope given the subject matter, The Warriors is a pretty volatile slot. The bonus round isn’t the easiest to trigger so you’ll need to show plenty of patience and have a decent bankroll to play with. When you do get in the free spins can certainly be worthwhile, especially thanks to the multipliers.
The movie version of The Warriors was packed full of action – the slot feels a little sedate in comparison. The visuals are nicely done and the soundtrack, complete with rattling subway trains, conjures up a slight air of menace. The Warriors isn’t a bad slot by any means. We’d just liked to have seen it pack a little more punch. If you like slots based on movies, iSoftBet offers you Rambo and Platoon.
