Thunderkick’s Sword of Khans Video Slot Review

Sword of Khans: Demo

Classy design and explosive gameplay come together very nicely in the Sword of Khans slot, a 5 reel, 10 payline game from Thunderkick. Based on the warriors of the mighty Asian Mongol empire, it comes with a bonus round that awards free spins complete with expanding symbols and multipliers of up to 3x. Join the rampaging hordes in this high variance slot from 10p to £100 per spin – across all compatible devices of course.

Mongol theme

Thunderkick is in the Premier League when it comes to the design of their slots and Sword of Khans is another winner as far as sound and visuals are concerned. The setting is a snow-capped mountain range. The reels are enclosed with a traditional pagoda-style building where you’ll find A to 10 royals as well as a Mongo, warrior’s shield, breastplate and helmet. The best symbol is Khan himself who pays 1.5, 10, 50 or 250 times your total bet if you land 2, 3, 4 or 5 o a payline. The sword acts as both a wild and a scatter.

Up to 15 free spins with extras

The Bonus Game feature is triggered in the usual manner by landing 3 or more scatters anywhere on the same spin – 3, 4 or 5 sword scatter/wilds will give you a payout of 2, 20 or 200 times your bet. You’ll then receive 5, 7, 8, 9, 10, 12 or 15 free spins. This number is picked at random.

Expanding symbols with multipliers

Also selected at random is 1 standard symbol. Called the Expanding Win feature, this will expand to fill the whole of the reel each time it appears during the free spins round. These expanded symbols can also come with multipliers attached (known as the Increasing Multipliers feature) which can double or even treble your awards. Re-triggers are possible here too. Land 2 swords and 5 extra free spins are awarded.

Super high variance

Sword of Khans is a fine-looking slot. The gameplay is simple but the free spins round can really pack a mighty punch, especially if you land a high value symbol as the expander. This is an extremely volatile game with the variance as high as a Himalayan mountain peak. It offers wins of 10,000 x bet on each free spin.

If you’re after a slot that is a feast for the senses and also offers high risk but potentially high reward play, then Sword of Khans could be just the challenge you’re looking for. One thing to note is that the RTP is 95.36% – pretty low for a Thunderkick slot. If you want high RTP % slots, Thunderkick’s 1429 Uncharted Seas is your game (98.6% RTP).
