Warlords: Crystals of Power Slot Review

NetEnt’s latest video slot couldn’t have come at a better time. With so many developers releasing superhero themed slots, the arrival of this title could see it compete with those new games – at least in theory.

Warlords: Crystals of Power isn’t necessarily a superhero themed slot per se, although it does have a lot of similarities with those types of games, not least the eccentric characters, and the superpowers present via the titular crystals.

This 5-reel, 30-line slot is brimming over with special features, and may just have a shot of knocking off NextGen Gaming and Playtech’s DC Universe themed slots this winter.

Developers

Warlords: Crystals of Power is pretty much the same as many other NetEnt slots in terms of design. The Scandinavian casino software giants haven’t exactly gone out of their way to make things new for this game. We’ve seen many of the features in this slot before, albeit in other NetEnt games.

Graphically there is nothing superior about this game, and you can liken it to a combination of Magic Portals and Hall of Gods in terms of graphical quality. The only thing which does stand out in this slot – when compared to other NetEnt games – is the jackpot, which is considerably larger in this game than we are ordinarily used to seeing.

How to play

When it comes to wagering menus and setup, don’t expect too much originality. Net Entertainment tends to stick to what they know. The old expression “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” certainly applies to the wagering menus of this slot, which are vague, and a bit dull.

Players can select various coin values even if they can’t adjust the paylines in the slot. A total of 30 lines will still only see you wagering on half of them, though, so expect a wagering range which stems from $0.15 per spin, up to $150 per spin in all. That’s not too shabby by any means.

Features

Wild symbols: The three crystals of power symbol acts as a wild icon in this game, and it is capable of substituting for all other symbols in the game, barring scatters. Wild symbols are also the best paying icons in the game, if you manage to land 5 on a payline, that is.

Scatter symbols: Scatters take on the shape of hammers, arrows, and swords (the weapons of the leaders). Each scatter can work in unison with the others to trigger the free spins battle feature, as well as cough up scattered wins.

Random features: This slot contains randomly triggered features. A randomly overlaying wild feature can be triggered randomly in the base game, and each leader can give you a different bonus with this feature.

The Barbarian will offer you 4 wilds in a square formation, whilst The Priestess can can give you between 2 and 5 wilds. The Samurai bonus can also see you net between 2 and 5 wilds at random.

Free spins battle: Once the bonus round is triggered, the three leaders will do battle to determine which one of the free spin features you will get to play with. If you land the Barbarian bonus, you will get 9 free games with only high paying symbols appearing on the reels.

The Priestess feature offers you 7 free spins with additional scatters and increasing multipliers. Lastly, the Samurai feature offers you 5 free spins with scatters becoming sticky wilds for the duration of the bonus.

Maximum pay-outs

The biggest theoretical pay-out in Warlords: Crystals of Power is 6,666x your total bet. That can only be won in The Priestess free spin bonus feature, so personally this is the bonus round would be trying to land if it were us.

You can still bag decent wins with the wilds in the base game and other features, although they don’t seem to equate to the same tally you can acquire in that particular bonus round.

Summary

Let us first say that Net Entertainment haven’t really done anything new with this game. It appears as though there are a lot of features in this slot, but there are equally as many (if not more) in either of the South Park slots from this developer, as well as other games.

Warlords: Crystals of Power is overly complex and a bit intimidating. Once you get the hang of it, it can be fun to play, though.

This doesn’t look as though it is going to rival the other superhero themed slots on the net at the moment, and it certainly doesn’t look like it is going to be one of NetEnt’s biggest titles of all time. Even so, there is enough entertainment and winnings to be had if you wish to try this one out.
