Warriors Gold is a 5 reel, 243 ways to win slot powered by Playtech. Playable from 30p a spin across multiple devices, it has an ancient Chinese theme and benefits from an excellent bonus feature – you have a free spins feature where you can get up to 40 free spins with wild multipliers up to 30x.

Visually, Warriors Gold has a calm and tranquil setting with a misty riverside as the background. Symbols on the reels include Chinese styled playing cards (A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9) as well as an assortment of traditional Chinese objects (like koi carp, fans, jade rings, golden coins and dragons). The dragon is the most lucrative symbol giving you 1,000 coins for 5 on a payline.

The Warrior is the wild symbol and appears only on the 3 middle reels – he also substitutes for all symbols except the scatter. That scatter is the golden ingot which is crucial to triggering the Samurai feature – you need 3 or more scatters starting from reel 1 to trigger it.

3 will give you 5 times your total stake whilst 4 will give you 10 times your total stake. If you get 5, you will win 50 times your total stake. The Samurai feature is a free spins game where you choose 1 of 5 free spins options with various multipliers:

  • 5 free spins with wild randomly multiplied by 10x, 15x or 40x
  • 8 free spins with wild randomly multiplied by 8x, 10x or 15x
  • 10 free spins with wild randomly multiplied by 5x, 8x or 10x
  • 15 free spins with wild randomly multiplied by 3x, 5x or 8x
  • 20 free spins with wild randomly multiplied by 2x, 3x or 5x

When you get a wild part of a winning free spin, you will randomly get 1 of the 3 multiplier values – if you were to play the 5 free spins option, wild winning free spins would be subject to a multiplier of 10x, 15x or 40x. Personally, I would always opt for the higher multipliers as you just might get lucky with that 1 free spin. On top of all this, you can retrigger the feature giving you 10 free spins with wild wins of up to 40x for example.

I really like Warriors Gold with the variance being in the medium to high bracket – it’s rather simple but it does look great and the Samurai feature is excellent. As mentioned, opt for the higher multipliers in the hope you land 1 high value winning wild win. If you like Chinese themed slots, Playtech has plenty with Sun Wukong and Jade Emperor worth considering.
