Warlords – Crystals of Power is Netent’s November 2016 big release. The year 2016 has been exceptionally good for Netent, with a whole slew of superb pokie releases: Guns N’ Roses, Drive: Multiplier Mayhem, Jimi Hendrix, Motorhead, Red Riding Hood, Secrets of Atlantis and When Pigs Fly.
All these Netent pokies proved to be very strong and popular pokies, even if When Pig Fly was, in fact, a clone of Reel Rush. A very good clone nonetheless, as it managed to improve over 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 wonderful year with a bang. Warlords – Crystals of Power is an absolute belter of an online pokie and we expect it to do extremely well. Of course, with a cool name like Warlords – Crystals of Power we did not expect anything less than Netent’s best work.
This pokie is themed around three epic warriors: a Barbarian, a Priestess and a Samurai warrior. As all epic warriors tend to do, they all have their own wild pet animals, ranging from a wolf, a panther to a wild boar.
Graphically, this pokie is 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 coin value $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 the flags of their kingdoms.
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.
The three warriors all 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 coin value of 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 pokie: three different Mystery features and three different Free Spins Bonus 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. During the free spins bonus, you are awarded three more free spins for every scatter symbol that lands on the reels.
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 biggest wins on the Priestess Free Spins and the Samurai Free Spins bonus features. Even though you get less free spins than with the Barbarian Free Spins, the extra multipliers and sticky wilds can really rack up some huge wins.
Warlords – Crystals of Power: the final score
Warlords – Crystals of Power is easily one the best releases ever by Net Entertainment.
This pokie really has it all: gorgeous graphics, exciting bonus features, an epic music score and plenty of big wins. What more do we need to say? We absolutely love this pokie.
