Travel Back in Time in This Slot
Sword of Khans is a new online slot game from Thunderkick which takes its inspiration from the achievements of Genghis Khan, who founded the Mongol Empire in the thirteenth century. Known as the first Great Khan, Genghis was a famously brutal warrior, but he also achieved a great deal from a political perspective, and his role in history is undisputed. The Sword of Khans slot focuses squarely on Khan’s might as a warrior, and will therefore appeal to those of you who wouldn’t mind letting off some steam as you play for cash prizes which can be worth as much as 10,000 times your stake.
Clean Lines and Bold Colours
Sword of Khans is a five-reel game with ten pay lines, and the action takes place at altitude, with the reels being framed in a temple environment at the top of a mountain. The background mountainscape is really well illustrated, and the temple structure is equally well detailed. The reels have a patterned burgundy texture, and symbols which appear on them include the playing card ranks of 10, J, Q, K and A, a shield, armour, a helmet, a sword (which serves as both a wild and a scatter) and a Khan character who we assume to be Genghis himself.
The visual aesthetics of this title are impressive, and the graphics are crisp and clean whether you play on a desktop, tablet or mobile device. A martial soundtrack accompanies you as you march through the mountainous regions on your never-ending quest to expand your empire, and the sound effects put you right in the midst of battle, with the ringing of your blade regularly piercing the cold air whenever you achieve a win.
Free Spins Bonus Game
Sword of Khans doesn’t have that many features, but the Free Spins Bonus Game which it does have is very enjoyable. This is triggered by getting three, four or five sword scatter symbols on the reels at the same time, and will give you 5, 7, 8, 9, 10, 12 or 15 free spins – the exact number will be randomly determined. Should you get another two or more sword symbols during this feature, the Bonus Game will be retriggered, giving you even more free spins to enjoy.
When you trigger the Bonus Game (or retrigger it), one symbol will be randomly selected (not including the sword symbol) to become an expanding symbol. That symbol will then expand to fill the entire reel whenever it appears during the remaining spins of the Bonus Game. If you retrigger the Bonus Game and an already expanding symbol is randomly selected, it obviously can’t be selected as an expanding symbol again, and so a multiplier value will be applied to it instead. The maximum multiplier value that an expanding symbol can have is x3.
Any win which is achieved with the help of an expanding symbol that has a multiplier value will be increased by that multiplier. Should you get several wins which are all assisted by the expanding symbol, all of those wins will be increased by the multiplier. This makes it possible to achieve some very nice wins indeed if luck is on your side.
Are You Ready to Make History?
Genghis Khan made history thanks to his strategic and often brutal aggression, and whilst you’re unlikely to repeat his achievement of creating the biggest empire the world has ever known, you do have the chance to win a top prize of 10,000 times your stake. Head over to your preferred casino which offers Thunderkick titles to have a go at doing just that, and may your steel be lucky.
