Warlords: Crystals of Power is a fantasy themed online slot game by software developer Netent, and it is intense in all respects. You will find yourself in a fantasy world that is at war, with a heavy shadow of gloom and desolation. Despite that, there is plenty going on in terms of the graphics and visuals. They are of great quality and even boast their fair share of animations. The setup is actually quite intense too; it is heavily laden with special features, so if that’s the type of offering you have been searching for keep reading.

The layout is seemingly conventional, featuring a grid of 5 reels and 3 rows. It comes with a total of 30 active paylines, and this being a Netent game you won’t have the opportunity to play around with their numbers. Then again, stakes here are per 2 paylines, meaning you will have a minimum bet of 15p per spin, and that’s very fair considering what you get in return. The maximum wager amount, on the other hand, is a rather steep £150 per single spin.

Special Features

Like every good fantasy game, Warlords: Crystals of Power comes with an epic story, and that story has the three rulers as its main focus. You will see them on the reels, and what makes them special is that they can appear fully stacked. Furthermore, they each have special features tied into them, such as the freespins rounds.

Wild

The Wild symbol can appear anywhere on the screen throughout gameplay, and it will be able to replace any of the other symbols to help create winning combos – excluding the Scatter symbols.

What’s more, the Wild also participates in a randomly triggered feature – the Random Overlay Wild feature. Depending on which one you triggered, you can get to play out one of three different versions of this feature.

  1. Barbarian Hammer: Changes a block of 2×2 symbols into Wilds.
  2. Priestess Arrow: Randomly adds between 2 and 5 Wilds to the reels.
  3. Samurai Sword: Gives you an extra 2 to 5 Wilds but only on reels 1 through 4.

Freespins

As is commonly the case, the Freespins Bonus feature is the game’s most attractive attribute, and similarly to the Random Overlay Wild it also has three different sub-features. These again are related to  the three rulers.

You will notice that the middle three reels can each display a different colored Scatter; blue, green, and red. In order to trigger the Freespins, you will need to land at least 2 of these Scatter symbols at the same time. This will trigger the Battle Feature between the warlords, the result being that all Scatters turn into one color. Once you have 3 Scatters of the same color, that will trigger the corresponding freespins feature.

  • Barbarian Freespins – You will receive a total of 9 freespins. Throughout this round you will benefit from only higher value symbols on the reels and a new Scatter. If you land that Scatter you will gain an extra 3 freespins.
  • Priestess Freespins – Awards 7 freespins with a Scatter that increases your multiplier by 1.
  • Samurai Freespins – This will give you 5 freespins and a Scatter that acts as a Sticky Wild for the duration of the bonus.

Verdict

The amount of special features in Warlords: Crystals of Power may seem overwhelming at first. However, once you actually start playing you will see how easy it is to grasp and how smooth gameplay is. You will also get to trigger these special features fairly often thanks to this title’s medium variance.
