Great Wars Slot
- Only one real bonus here that offers free spins
- Free spins provide better odds and additional prizes
- Theme is a bit different and centered around going to battle
Great Wars slot is one of the latest to come from Stakelogic and as you might have guessed from the title of the game. It seems like there are 2 different factions going to war, although I’m not sure if they’re going to war together or against each other. Regardless, the design here features quite a lot of animations with both the symbols and the backdrop which sees soldiers marching on to battle. The graphics aren’t the best but I appreciate the effort they’ve gone to here. All you need to do to play the game is just spin the reels to get a winning combination from left to right using the base symbols. These are listed as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
- Jack (lowest value)
- Queen or King
- Tiger Soldier or Man Soldier
- Queen or King (highest value)
Great Wars Slot Bonuses and Features
Wild Symbols. Great Wars slot features not just 1 but 2 Wild symbols that are quite unique when compared to how Wilds work in other slots. Each as shown as an emblem for each side in the war and have the same effect in that they can substitute for all other symbols in a winning combination apart from the Scatter symbols. Interestingly, a double Wild symbol can appear, worth half the value of the individual Wild symbols and this can appear on all reels.
Free Spins Bonus and Scatter Prize. The game features a golden Scatter symbol, which is used to trigger both these features when 7 or more of them appear on the reels at the same time in any position. Specifically, you will be awarded:
- 8 free spins and a scatter prize for 7 Scatter symbols.
- 15 free spins and a scatter prize for 8 Scatter symbols.
- 30 free spins and a scatter prize for 9 Scatter symbols.
The free spins in this game offer better odds to get a win by providing you with a different set of reels whereby winning combinations occur more regularly. In addition to this, most of the Scatter symbols that appear during the free spins are Stacked Scatter symbols, whereby the symbols are stacked on top of each other, and all Scatter symbols appear only on reels 2, 3 and 4. Unfortunately, there is no way to retrigger the free spins, so starting off with 8 or 30 can make a huge difference to your payout.
Great Wars slot from Stakelogic is a medium volatility slot with the main focus on free spins as that’s pretty much the only feature on offer here. That being said, it’s actually quite a good one, certainly different from some of the others you see. What’s interesting here is that the free spins actually offer you a better chance of winning by using a different set of reels to the base game. Now, exactly how much of a better chance you have is hard to say; in our experience it’s not a massive improvement but in the long term I think it’s noticeable. I would certainly have liked to have seen more features on offer here though to make the game more engaging, and potentially more rewarding too. It might be worth a try for some players, but Great Wars slot is certainly not the best slot we’ve ever seen in any aspect. Be sure to check out our other reviews here at Stopandstep.
