The Warriors Based On an Old Film
The Warriors slot game is by iSoftBet, and is based on a 1979 film based on New York’s street gangs. The movie itself is based on a book written some years earlier, and recounts the story of one the city’s gangs being falsely accused of murdering another gang leader, and thus becoming a target for all the other gangs who had earlier declared a truce. The movie is now regarded as something of a cult movie.
Symbols from the New York Gangs
The Warriors slot game has a very plain and unadorned background, and the standard playing card symbols from ten to the ace are portrayed as graffiti sprayed on walls. The characters in The Warriors slot game are based on the characters in the movie, and include Mercy and Swan, Cowboy and Cochise. All of these symbols are photos of the characters, again backed by graffiti. Throughout the game the sounds in the background are traffic noises and machinery.
The Warriors has five reels and 243 ways to win, as opposed to the usual format of pay lines. This means a symbol appearing on three or more consecutive reels from the reel on the extreme left, will give you a win regardless of their position.
The highest paying symbol is Mercy, and this symbol will pay out 2000 coins if it lands on all five reels. Swan is the next most valuable, and will pay one thousand coins, with Cowboy and Cochise coming in at five hundred and four hundred coins respectively. The playing cards will pay you between four hundred and one hundred coins for five matching symbols.
Wilds and Scatters
The Wild symbols are both Mercy and swan, and they can substitute for any other symbol in the game to form a winning combination, apart from the bonus symbol. The bonus symbol is The Warriors Gang Badge, and will only appear on reels two to five, but when it forms a part of a winning combination, your win will be doubled. This game has an Autoplay button, which can be used for automatic spins, until the free spins round appears or until the gangs have left you no more cash.
An Interesting Free Spins Bonus Round
If you land the bonus symbol on each of the first, third and fifth reel, the free spins bonus round will be unlocked. To find out how many free spins you are given, and your multiplier, you have to make some choices. First of all, you pick one of the three symbols on reel one, and that will reveal the number of free spins you get. Picking a symbol on reel three will reveal the amount of the multiplier you will receive, and which will be in play throughout the duration of the free spins round. Your final choice will be to pick a symbol on reel five, and this will show the symbols of the game that will be stacked during the free spins bonus round.
The right choices could give you a free spins round with fifty free spins and a multiplier of ten, which could award you a highly lucrative round, especially if you count the stacked symbols that you get on the reels.
The Warriors slot game may divide opinion among slot players. The stark, bare bones of the game may make some slot players look for more colourful games to play, but perhaps in twenty or thirty years’ time The Warriors slot game may also have a cult following.
