Ancient Warriors is an Asian-themed game that opens with a plot for revenge. A beautiful, peaceful village has been senselessly destroyed, and its people call upon the aid of a trio of professional guardians. These three warriors wage their war on a background of traditional and elaborate Temples, flanked by orange columns and a picturesque slanted roof. This structure is set within mountainous landscape, which gives you the feeling that this quiet place of worship is set way up high.
As Chinese-themed slots go, Ancient Warriors is definitely one of the better ones, offering the genre more integrity and elegance. Once you get stuck into the gameplay, the reels themselves cover various animals, including monkeys, serpents, and cats. Unfortunately the usual suite of Royals also make the cut, adding a series of symbols from Jacks to Aces to the grid. These unimpressive symbols are the low payers, as each Jack, Queen, King and Ace will pay from 0.3 to 0.7 x for 4 of a kind. The premium symbols don’t pay much more than this. The aforementioned animal symbols pay out starting at just 0.7 x, up to a very disappointing 1.5 x for 4 of a kind.
The Scatter symbols are the neon blue Chinese symbols. 3 or more land these pretty symbols will help you trigger the Free Spins feature. The Wild symbol is the Yin-Yang symbol of balance. Feature Symbols are Gold Chinese medallions. The patented SEE-THRU mechanic adds more to the visuals than the actual gameplay, giving the reels a translucent effect that’s quite pleasing to the eye.
