About Warrior Graveyard Slot
In early 2020 Nolimit City unleashed their outstanding Barbarian Fury slot, a beast of a game that was aimed at the high variance market, screaming epic in every way from its warrior theme to the big potential and outstanding mix of multipliers, re-spins and their trademark xNudge feature. It would surely be hard to beat that one. Well, it looks like this thrilling young studio, our developer of the year without doubt, have done just that.
Warrior Graveyard is another superb release, building on the theme of Barbarian Fury, but this time setting the game in the aftermath of some great battle and focusing on what happens to the great and the bad when they pass on in the midst of the fighting. The scene is fantastic, with a half-hidden moon shining down on a 6×3 reel set and armoury adorning the reels. The visuals are high quality and the soundtrack lends a mean and ominous feel to events.
Wins are triggered by landing 3 or more matching symbols here from left to right on 25 fixed paylines. But of course, this being Nolimit City you get plenty of help along the way from xNudges, which now apply to premiums as well as wilds, and re-spins and free spins.
It’s surely one of the best high variance slots of 2020. Let’s find out more.
RTP, Variance and Top Payout
Yes, make no mistake, this is not a game for the feint-hearted. Only venture into the warrior graveyard if you are ready to take on some mean, high risk slots action. That means expect slow periods with little return, but a payoff of super-exciting win sequences where all the features come together. Remember, play games like this responsibly. Choose your stake carefully and don’t chase your losses if things aren’t going your way. The RTP is a decent enough 96.16% and the top payout is 9,797x – which is marginally higher than that of Barbarian Fury.
Symbols and Paytable
Do not be afraid of the dead warriors, because they are not here to scare you, their only role in the game is to deliver payouts. All the warriors are buried with their weapons, so expect to see low value symbols like Hammers, Axes, Helmets, Shields, and Swords, which deliver from 2.80x to 3x times the bet for five of a kind.
The Warrior buried with his Sword is the highest-paying regular symbol, awarding gamers with 6x bet for the maximum combination. Also, there are the Orange, Green, Blue, and Grey Warriors, all of them paying between 5x and 3.20x for five on a payline.
Tombstones act as Wilds that substitute for all regular symbols to from wins and Scatters trigger Graveyard Spins and Death Spins, as well as acting as Wilds.
Gameplay and Features
With base game action pretty slow, it’s all about hitting these features if you want to score any big wins. Here is how they work:
xNudge Tombstone Wilds Feature
Nolimit City fans will of course be familiar with this increasingly famous trademark feature.
Tombstone Wilds can appear on all reels except the first, and they are three high. Thanks to the xNudge, every time a Wild lands on the reels, it will nudge to cover the entire reel. With each nudge, a win multiplier will increase by 1x. In this way the multiplier attached to a single Wild can be as big as 3x.
If more multiplier Wilds are involved in a single win, the multipliers are combined!
Warrior Attack Feature
Here’s the exciting part – premiums can also trigger the xNudge!
Three or more instances of the same Warrior icon will trigger the Warrior Attack feature. The symbol that triggered the feature will nudge to cover the entire reel, and will also increase the win multiplier by 1x for every nudge. As with Wilds, the Warrior icons multipliers can increase up to a maximum of 3x.
In addition to this, the premium stacks will move all the way to the left-most reel before the win is calculated.
Graveyard Spins Feature
Three, four, or five Scatters on the reels will trigger the Graveyard Spins feature. Depending on the number of triggering Scatters, players will be rewarded with 8, 10, or 12 free spins. Landing additional Scatters will earn extra free spins during the round.
xNudget Tombstone Wilds are still in play but this time there is no limit to how high the multipliers can go.
Death Spins Feature
Six Scatters on the reels will trigger the Death Spins feature. Fourteen free spins is what you get here, and, again, the win multiplier increase with every nudge of the Wild stacks. However, in this feature, the Wilds are sticky, and will remain on the reels until Death Spins are finished. Plus, additional Scatters will deliver extra free spins.
Clearly the Death Spins feature is the one that is going to deliver any super-high wins in this game. It’s all the other features combined and on steroids!
A truly awesome slot has been unleashed by Nolimit City and it is another marker in their ascent to the top echelons of the high variance slot market, a journey that began in 2020. What makes Warrior Graveyard great is it takes all the best bits of other games like Barbarian Fury and then adds more! The Warrior Attack and Death Spins features are what fires us up when we think about the potential of this game, as well as the epic and haunting atmosphere. But as we said before … be very wary because high variance action like this is always tough, so play responsibly, and have fun!
