Warlords: Crystals of Power is a Net Entertainment slot with 5 reels and 30 paylines. Playable from 15p to £150 per spin across desktop, mobile and tablet devices, you get to conquer the world in a time where rulers were after land and they riches they possessed.
The story centres on the 3 remaining rulers: The Barbarian, The Priestess and The Samurai. After many years of war, they battle each other to become the ultimate ruler and capture everything for themselves. With a medieval theme, it has excellent high definition graphics, superb animations, camera close-ups and shadings which will surely get your excited – it does have an epic feel to it and wouldn’t be out of place in a Hollywood blockbuster.
When it comes to symbols, each of the rulers appears stacked on the reels – you will also see wolves, panthers, warthogs, and 3 coloured masks (1 for each ruler). The highest value symbols are the Samurai and wild (the 3 crystals of power symbol) with 20 times your stake for 5 on a payline. The wild symbol also substitutes for all symbols except the scatter symbols.
As for bonus features, there are plenty! There’s a Random Overlay Wild feature – during every spin in the base game, the feature can trigger randomly. Played on a different reel set with no scatters on the reels, you have the Barbarian hammer gives you 4 wilds in the shape of a square on reels 1 to 4. The Priestess arrow gives you between 2 and 5 wilds on reels 1 to 5. The Samurai sword gives you between 2 and 5 wilds on reels 1 to 4.
As for the scatters, there are 3 of them (hammer, arrow and sword) – the blue scatter triggers the Barbarian Free Spins feature with the green scatter awarding the Priestess Free Spins feature. The red scatter triggers the Samurai Free Spins feature.
If you get different scatters, it will trigger the Battle feature between the 3 warlords – they battle it out to trigger the winning free spins feature. You will get re-spins with the active scatters remaining in position – you will get more re-spins if a new scatter appears.
If you get 3 of the same scatter, you will trigger the corresponding free spins feature. If you don’t, you will trigger the Final Chance feature where you win a cash prize up to 100 times your stake or a scatter to trigger the Free Spins feature – here are the details:
The Barbarian Free Spins feature rewards you with a minimum of 9 free spins. Only high value warlord and animal symbols appear on the reels with a new scatter adding 3 extra free spins when it appears. In terms of win potential, there’s up to 600 times your stake to be won in this feature.
The Samurai Free Spins feature gives you 5 free spins with the scatter symbol acting like a sticky wild for the duration of the free spins. Like the Barbarian feature, there’s up to 600 times your stake up for grabs.
The Priestess Free Spins feature gives you 7 free spins with additional scatter symbols increasing the multiplier by 1x for each one that appears. This is by far the most lucrative feature with over 6,666 times your stake to be won!
Warlords: Crystals of Power may seem a little complex but it’s quite simple once you start spinning those reels. Visually brilliant, I like the range of bonus features the potential for winning big in the free spins features. I found the game to be a medium to high variance one that I’m sure will become a firm favourite. I also recommend you try other high variance NetEnt slots such as Piggy Riches which is a classic.
