Heavy Metal Warriors is an online slots game that is loosely based on the popular 1970s fantasy comic magazine, Heavy Metal. This magazine was known for its mix of fantasy and science fiction with erotica. iSoftbet, the developers, took this theme of heavy metal combined with fantasy and created a not so classic online slots game with a female warrior fantasy theme.
Heavy Metal Warriors requires the player to do more than simply ‘spin the wheel’ – they must go on a quest. The game starts out with the player needing to reunite four beautiful female warriors that seem to have fallen out.
The player does this by finding letter and number symbols that provide clues to their whereabouts. Once all warriors are found and reunited the warriors will go wild, forming winning combinations.
In addition, the warriors also provide the player with several bonus features. The background is an alien world and the warriors are present. Every time you win the characters come to life.
The music in the game is typically heavy metal which adds to the overall theme. Every time you there is a brief guitar riff.
General Description and Symbols
Heavy Metal Warriors has 5 reels and it has 243 ways in which the player can win. This is not a common trend among online slots but it is definitely beneficial to players as it means the player has more ways to win big.
If a symbol falls on any of the reels 3 or more times then you will win. The top prize is given for 5 in a row and occurs when a symbol lands on all five reels.
The reason this is different is because in the more traditional slots the symbols have to be lined up in a row in order to win.
To play Heavy Metal Warriors, you can place bets from 1c to $5, and there is a top fixed value of 5,000 coins. Various symbols and bonus features help to increase winnings.
The four warriors are the symbols which will ensure you the highest pay outs, ranging from 500 coins for 5 in a row of the auburn haired warrior to 5000 coins for 5 in a row of the brunette with windswept hair. 3 or more of the playing card symbols will also help you win, although the amounts are smaller.
The wild symbol in Heavy Metal Warriors is a shield with the word ‘wild’ and appears on the second, third and fourth reels. If it appears with a winning combination It will trigger a re-spin. If the wild symbol appears again during this re-spin you will get to spin again, up to 3 times.
This shield can also, with one exception, replace all the symbols in the game to form winning combinations. The exception is the scatter symbol. If you land 2 of the bonus scatter symbols in a pay-line the game will pay out rewards; 3 of these scatter symbols will activate the Pick Me Bonus. With all these cool bonuses available, this is by far one of the best pokies online available to players around the world.
Heavy Metal Warriors has a Pick Me Bonus round where the player will get a round of free spins. You will have to pick a box which determines how many free spins you will get.
The spins range from 10 to 30 free rounds. The one big difference in this round compared to the main game is that the casino chooses the bet amount in this round rather than the player.
