Ancient China is the setting for Warriors Gold, a 5 reel, 243 ways to win video slot from Playtech. The biggest treasure in this battle comes via the bonus feature where you can choose from between 5 and 20 free spins with wild multipliers that can send payouts rocketing by 2x right up to a mammoth 30x. Enter the fray on all devices from 30p per spin.

Most of Playtech’s Chinese-themed video slots are easy on the eye and Warriors Gold is no exception – a misty, riverside backdrop forms the backdrop to the reels. Symbols include Chinese-style A to 9 playing cards as well as objects traditionally associated with the Asian giant.

The fan and koi carp offer payouts of up to 300 coins – land 5 of the jade ring or the golden coin and you’ll pocket 800 coins. Most rewarding is the golden dragon head which offers payouts of some 1,000 coins. Joining the standard symbol is the mighty warrior who acts as the game’s wild – he doesn’t offer any specific payouts but does substitute for all other symbols apart from the scatter.

Landing 3 or more of the scatter (the golden hat) from reel 1 will get you a payday of 5, 10 or 50 times your total stake. It also unlocks the Samurai feature – this is a free spins round where you get to choose a combination of free spins and wild multipliers. The choices are:

  • 5 free spins with wild random multipliers of 10x, 15x or 40x
  • 8 free spins with wild random multipliers of 8x, 10x or 15x
  • 10 free spins with wild random multipliers of 5x, 8x or 10x
  • 15 free spins with wild random multipliers of 3x, 5x or 8x
  • 20 free spins with wild random multipliers of 2x, 3x or 5x

Whenever a wild forms part of a winning payline, the payout will be boosted by 1 of your 3 selected wild multipliers. Look out for the golden hat here too as it can trigger another round of free spins complete with multiplier – this could mean 40 free spins with a 5x multiplier or 10 free spins with a 40x multiplier for example.

Warriors Gold is another solid Chinese-themed video slot from Playtech. The design isn’t as flashy as in some similarly themed games but does the job just fine. The best potential action comes via the Samurai feature where the multiplier can quickly deliver.  If you’re a fan of Asian or historical themed titles, then you’ll want to enter the fray in Warriors Gold. I also recommend you try Warlords: Crystals of Power by NetEnt which also features fierce warriors
