Terracotta Army Features
Aspiring Terracotta Warriors can bet from as little as 20p all the way up to £100, so the more daring could potentially take home £100,000! To win, all you need to do is land matching symbols on 3 adjacent reels starting from the leftmost reel.
Low-pay symbols take the form of creatures from ancient Chinese mythology. Despite their artistry, it’s difficult to make out what they are, but in ascending order of value, their colours are blue, green, purple and red.
If you match 5 of these on 3 adjacent reels, you win between 1x and 2x times the bet. The high-pay symbols are of course Terracotta Warriors. Land 5 of these to pocket between 2.5 and 5 times your stake. The Wild symbol substitutes for all pay symbols.
It wouldn’t be an ancient-China-themed slot without some dragons and a bit of mystery, would it? Golden Dragon Mystery symbols appear on reels 2, 3 and 4. When one lands, it transforms into a random pay symbol and expands the reel by one position, thereby increasing the win ways, potentially all the way up to 30,375! They also carry multipliers of 2x to 5x.
Palace of Mercury feature & free spins
If the 1st reel fills with the same high-pay Terracotta Warrior symbol, all of the other reels respin and will only allow high-pay symbols to fall. If you don’t land any winning combos on the first spin, you get an extra one.
Scatter symbols can land on any reel. You just need 3 to trigger the Free Spins Bonus. 3 Scatters will award 4 to 7 free spins plus a maximum of 3 Sticky Mystery symbols—I’ll explain in a second.
If you gain access to Free Spins via 4 Scatter symbols, you’ll get between 4 and 8 free spins and up to 4 Sticky Mystery symbols. 5 Scatters will start you off with up to 9 free spins plus a maximum of 5 Sticky Mysteries.
Sticky Mystery symbols land on the lowest position of reels 2, 3 and 4, and once they’re there, they don’t leave until the round is over. They can expand like normal Mystery Symbols.
Also, during Free Spins, any Scatter symbols that land accumulate on a meter. Once you land 3, a low-pay symbol is removed from play. You can actually remove up to 3 low-pay symbols provided enough Scatter symbols drop.
Players lucky enough to dwell outside of the UK should be able to buy immediate access to the bonus rounds. 45x the stake will give you between 4 to 7 free spins. 90x the stake gives you 6 to 10 free spins. 180x your stake will give you between 9 and 14 free spins.
