1945 is an example of the online slots designed by game maker CQ9. It has 5x4 reels with 1,024 paylines and players will find a wild that substitutes for all other symbols apart from the scatter. The latter triggers free spins during which the player benefits from multipliers when winning lines are formed. This feature can re-trigger but is capped. There are more multipliers to be won when the wild helps to create a winning line.
There are five high-paying symbols, supplemented by the usual playing cards that act as the lower payers.

Our 1945 slot review appears below.
Theme, graphics and soundtrack
As the title suggests, this online slots game has a wartime theme, specifically WWII. The top-value symbols reflect this, featuring the Fat Man bomb, a tank, an aeroplane, a cannon, and a machine gun.
The graphics are well-crafted and even the card symbols fit in with their bullet holes. The soundtrack is a bombastic tune that suits the theme.
1945 RTP and variance
It is a mystery why CQ9 does not publish the RTP of its slots online; however, our experience of reviewing them is that they are almost always around the industry average of 96 per cent or better. Once again, the 1945 online slot has no official RTP. We view the game as displaying medium variance.
How to play 1945
You do not need the mindset of a wartime general to plot your way around this battlefield, but here are a few strategic tips:
- Load the main game screen and set your wager using the + and - buttons on the right of the screen.
- Click the menu icon to open a new mini menu.
- This is where you can mute the soundtrack if you wish by clicking the speaker icon.
- Now click the information icon to open a new set of screens.
- The first shows the paytable.
- Click the right-facing arrow to open screen two, which has a description of the wild and scatter.
- The next screen explains how these symbols operate.
- Finally, screen four explains the paylines.
- Back on the main screen, you can engage turbo or auto spin by clicking the left-facing arrow on the edge of the spin button. Neither can be customised and must be halted manually.
- You are now all set to play by hitting the spin button.
Remember that this is one of the online slots available to play as one of the many free slots here at Slots Temple. Free play is a great way to get a feel for a game before risking your own money at an online casino.
If you are playing with your own cash, set yourself a budget for each session and play responsibly. Self-exclusion and timeout functions are available if you need them.

1945 bonus features
Three, four or five scatter symbols trigger 10, 15 or 25 free spins. These come with multipliers of 2x, 5x or 10x your total wager. This feature re-triggers but is capped at 100 games.
When a wild helps to complete a winning line, it will add a multiplier of 2x, 4x or 6x.
1945 review: our verdict
If a war-themed game appeals to you, this is a game to take a look at. It has some classic symbols and a thumping soundtrack worthy of a classic war movie.
There are some cool features, with the multipliers being particularly interesting. These can be triggered when a wild completes a winning line or when you are in the free spins mode of the game. The fact that this phase can re-trigger is also a plus, despite it being capped at 100 games. This is still pretty generous.
As usual, we are unhappy with the lack of an official RTP on the game site. Experience suggests this should not be a problem, as the designer has a reputation for fairness.

Are there free games in 1945?
Yes, players can win free games when at least three scatter symbols land on the reels. Three will award you ten free spins and a 2x multiplier; land four and the spins increase to 15 and the multiplier rises to 5x. Finally, five scatters trigger the maximum 25 free games, each with a 10x multiplier.
Are there any other features?
The game is not exactly awash with features, but there are more multipliers. If the wild helps to form a winning line, it adds a multiplier of 2x, 4x or 6x. There are no other bonuses, which is a shame. We would particularly have liked to see a gamble feature.
What is the RTP of 1945?
There is no sign of an official RTP on the game site, nor will you find any further information if you visit the game maker’s website or an online casino. This is quite strange, as CQ9Gaming has a reputation for producing games with an above-average RTP.
