Welcome to Warlords: Crystals of Power, an action-packed slot from the stables of NetEnt. Here’s where players enter a world dominated by three brutal warlords who ruthlessly battle it out for world domination. You can play the barbarian, the priestess, and the samurai against each other and ultimately win the power game and the associated riches. The warlords have wild boars, panthers and wolves, which will be let loose on you at the slightest opportunity. As a battle-hardened warrior, you can easily tame them and win all the riches they combine to throw your way.
NetEnt has truly created an exciting slot played in a cataclysmic world in dangerous times. The game is a graphical beauty with violent animations and a soundtrack that effectively creates a warlike atmosphere. Played across 5 reels, 3 rows and 30 paylines, the game is packed with features that offer very good winning opportunities. Once you get into the thick of the action it can become difficult for you to extricate yourself, so be prepared for some hours of an exciting and profitable adventure.
All symbols of the game are associated with one of the warlords who appear across the entire reel. They comprise of 3 helmets, a panther, a boar, and a wolf. There is also the face of a war chief, though it’s unclear where his loyalties lie. The triple jewel is the game’s wild that can take the place of all other symbols, barring the scatters, to help create winning combinations. There are three scatters in the game, all represented by different-colored flags. Each scatter activates a unique free spins round where the action gets really hot.
You can make as much as the combined worth of all three warlords, which is 6,666 times your stake in the bonus games. The betting window lays between $0.15 and $150 a spin. Not only does the game have a high return to average rate of 96.89%, Warlords: Crystals of Power is a medium-to-low variance game, which means there is some serious money to be won with this game on a lucky day.
Much of the higher wins come from the bonus games. However, the base game can keep you pretty interested as well with significant payouts, particularly with the random overlay wilds.
The warlords are the slot’s premium symbols and can payout 10 to 20 times your bet for appearing on all five reels simultaneously. The ordinary triple jewel prominently announces itself when it lands and is worth 20 times your stake if it appears on all 5 reels.
It takes 3 of the same scatters to trigger the corresponding free spins round. However, if you land different scatters on the screen, the barbarian, priestess, and samurai battle it out between themselves. The action plays out through re-spins. This may end up giving you 3 identical scatters or with a cash prize of between 3 and 100 times your bet, which is the Final Chance feature of the game.
The Random Overlay Wilds is a bonus feature in the base game, but can also work in the free spins rounds. The feature is triggered randomly when one of the warlords comes into action all of the sudden:
Each warring faction gives you free spins, which are triggered when three of the same scatters land anywhere on the reels. The blue flag scatter belongs to the barbarian while the priestess flies the green flag and the samurai fights under the red flag.
It can be a bit of a struggle to get three flags of the same color on the reels. However, different scatter flags may also land on the reels simultaneously. When this happens you get a round of re-spins where the warlords go at each other’s throats. If the re-spins do not give you 3 of the same-colored scatter flags, you will anyway get a cash reward of between 3 and 100 times your stake.
Durian Dynamite is a high volatile slot. This basically means that there is a wide range in terms of the minimum and maximum wins. You could win small amounts, but you can also win very handsomely. Obviously, the smaller wins are going to be more frequent than the big ones.
Also, the minimum and maximum bet amount you can place per spin varies between $0.20 and $100. If you are after the elusive jackpot and want to win as much as possible, you will also have to take the biggest risk and place the maximum bet allowed.
The max jackpot payout in this game is 2515.25 coins. So, the biggest amount you can win is when you hit the max jackpot in a spin where you have placed the maximum allowed wager on the line. Therefore $100 x 2515.25 = $251,525 is the most you can win in one spin.
A dynamite wild symbol is rare to come across, but it does happen every once in a while. When it does appear, it will only do so on reel 3. When the Dynamite Wild shows up, the fruits shoot out of the tube and land on the reels to make as many winnings combinations as possible. A dynamite wild also has the potential to explode into two wilds and that could set off a chain reaction, until there are no more explosions.
When you land 3 bonus scatters, you will receive at least 6 free spins. Additionally, you get a bonus picker and have the option to choose between the following bonus rounds – free spins, extra dynamite wilds and extra dynamite reels.
It can be more thrilling to play and win while multi-tasking on the move. This is possible because the game is fully-optimized for cellular operating platforms like Android, iOS, Windows Phone, and Blackberry, etc. Any smartphone or tablet that runs on these systems and others like them can seamlessly play this NetEnt medieval adventure on their mobile devices.
Warlords: Crystals of Power is visually stunning, and represents a milestone in graphics and soundtrack. That said – the game scores quite high in terms of bonus features, which play out in tandem with the slot’s cataclysmic theme. And last but not the least, the game stays true to its above-average RTP and offers a generous winning potential that can make you a near millionaire overnight if the stars happen to favor you.
