Warlords slot review (Netent)


All these Netent slots proved to be solid and popular, even if When Pigs Fly was, in fact, a clone of Reel Rush. A very good clone, nonetheless, as it managed to improve on the original (which was already very entertaining as it was). And it looks like Netent waited for the end of the year to release the best for last – and end this incredible year with a bang.

Warlords – Crystals of Power is Netent’s November 2016 big release.

2016 has been perfect for Netent, with a slew of superb slot releases: Guns N’ Roses, Drive: Multiplier Mayhem, Jimi Hendrix, MotorheadRed Riding Hood, Secrets of Atlantis and When Pigs Fly.

Warlords – Crystals of Power is an absolute belter of an online slot, and we expect it to do exceptionally well.

Of course, with a cool name like Warlords – Crystals of Power, we did not expect anything less than Netent’s best work.

Three Epic Warriors: The Warlords

This slot is themed around three epic heroes: a Barbarian, a Priestess and a Samurai warrior.

As all heroic warriors tend to do, they all have their wild pet animals, ranging from a wolf and a panther to a wild boar.

Graphically, this slot is on top of the bill, and the background sounds and music fit the theme perfectly, adding to the dark and brooding atmosphere.

You will hear warrior calls and the whooshing sound of deadly arrows flying through the air.

The return to player percentage of Warlords – Crystals of Power is a mighty 96,89%, another big plus.

The variance is medium – just how we like it.

Not too high, so we will go through our money too fast and not too low, making it impossible to win any significant amount.


Gameplay and bonus features of Warlord – Crystals of Power

Warlord has 30 fixed pay lines, which cost half a credit each.

The minimum bet is $0.15 per spin when playing at a coin value of $0.01.

Should you wish to stake higher bets, the maximum bet is $150 per spin.

All symbols are related to one of the three Warriors: masks, animals and scatter symbols with their kingdoms’ flags.

The wild symbol is set with three gemstones and substitutes for all symbols except the scatter symbol.

The scatter symbols activate one of the free spins bonuses.

All three warriors come stacked and are the highest-paying symbols (as they should).

The Samurai is the best one to win – five of a kind on an active pay line will award 300 times the bet.

5 Priestess symbols are good for 200x the coin value, and the Barbarian will pay 150x the coin value.


Free spins bonus and mystery features in Warlords

You can win six different bonus features while playing the Warlords slot: three different Mystery features and three different Free Spins Bonus features.

Mystery Features

These features are activated at random and will always award the player with extra wild symbols:

  • The Barbarian Hammer Feature: a block of 4 extra wilds on the screen
  • The Priestess Arrow Feature: 2-5 wild symbols on reels 1 to 5
  • The Samurai Sword Feature: 2-5 wild symbols on reels 1 to 4

Free Spins Features

You can win three different free spins bonus features in Warlords.

To activate the free spins bonus, you need at least two scattered flag symbols to appear on the screen.

When the two scatter symbols have appeared on the reels, you get extra chances to win more scatter symbols.

The more scatter symbols you get, the more advantage it will give you in the following free spins bonus round.

You need at least three scatter symbols to activate the free spin bonus.

The colour of the scatter symbols determines which of the three bonus features you will get.

Barbarian Free Spins (blue): you are awarded three free spins for every activating scatter symbol.

You are granted three more free spins for every scatter symbol that lands on the reels during the free spins bonus.

Priestess Free Spins (green): every activating scatter awards a +1 multiplier.

During the seven free spins, you will earn extra multipliers for every scatter symbol that appears.

Samurai Free Spins (red): you are awarded five free spins where every activating scatter is a sticky wild.

Extra scatter symbols during the free spins will award extra sticky wilds.

We have had the most significant wins on the Priestess Free Spins and the Samurai Free Spins bonus features.

Even though you get fewer free spins than with the Barbarian Free Spins, the extra multipliers and sticky wilds can rack up some huge wins.

Warlords – Crystals of Power: the final score

Warlords – Crystals of Power is easily one of the best releases ever by Net Entertainment.

This slot has gorgeous graphics, exciting bonus features, an epic music score and plenty of big wins.

What more do we need to say? We love this slot.
