Let’s hear it for the girls with the Warrior Maiden slot from High 5. An unusual five layout of 3, 4, 5, 4 and 3 rows of symbols is combined with a Win Both Ways mechanic to give 720 Winning Ways. Stacked Wilds and Free Spins provide plenty of chances to attract a win in this lovely-looking game which has theoretical returns of 94.9%
In the interests of equality of the sexes, games developers are starting to include a few more heroines these days. And that means creating games that might appeal to the ladies as much to the men - yes, we’re talking about you, Aztec Warrior Princess slot! Female warriors don’t have to be obvious, as High 5 have been keen to prove on the reels of this game.
Theme, Graphics & Soundtrack
The game’s reels are set against the walls of a house. We can only presume that the warrior maiden herself is somewhere inside, as her horse stands grazing outside its walls. There’s just a glimpse of mountain tops through the mist, and it all seems very peaceful. Even the high-paying symbols avoid any warrior-like connotations, being mostly represented by flowers. But the warrior maiden herself appears, of course, as well as a beautiful black horse Scatter.
Most game developers spend all their time and energy on the graphics and animations. And often by the time they get around to thinking about a game’s soundtrack, it’s a case of ‘anything will do’. It’s such a shame, and in our opinion many a good game has been ruined by generic slot game sounds. Or worse still, an irritating repetitive melody that keeps going round and round until you’re desperately searching for the mute button!
But the team behind High 5 slots understand that sounds can be every bit as important as the other elements. So you’ll find a rather haunting melody playing out as you spin the reels of Warrior Maiden. It’s clearly been designed to convey strength combined with beauty and grace, in line with the female heroine. So expect plenty of flutes accompanied by some flourishes from an Oriental-sounding gong.
Warrior Maiden RTP & Volatility
The RTP of Warrior Maiden comes in at a rather disappointing 94.9%. That’s below the level we’d be prepared to wager money on, as it tips the house edge just slightly over the 5% mark. As far as volatility is concerned, it’s hard to say, and High 5 haven’t been as helpful as they might have been. The statistics will probably make their way through to us at some point, but until then we advise caution. Games aimed at an Asian audience tend to have the higher volatility favoured by this demographic. Playing Warrior Maiden for free gives you the best opportunity of exploring your potential limits given the size of your available gaming budget.
How to Play Warrior Maiden
1. Before you play any online slots game, it’s always well worth taking the time to study the paytable. In the case of Warrior Maiden, you’ll see that there are two separate paytables, one for the base game and one for the free spins bonus round. In each case the amounts paid out are the same, but the colour of the symbols vary since the bonus plays out over a different set of reels.
2. Decide how much you’d like to wager. The game divides this up into multiples, against which it pays out prizes for winning combinations. Expect to experiment with your wager before you find a suitable level.
3. Press Spin for manual spinning, or select Autoplay for multiple spins at one single bet level.
4. You can mute the sounds from the Settings menu at the top right-hand corner of the screen.
Bet Sizes & Paytable Wins
Warrior Maiden has high-rollers in its sights, with a wagering range of between 0.50 to 250.00 per spin. The paytable isn’t entirely helpful when it comes to establishing the bet multipliers that apply. And that means a spell of playing with play money is in order to find out whether those wins are worth the cost of your spin. Multiples for landing three, four or five matching symbols are given as follows:
5, J = 5x, 15x, 50x
Q = 5x, 15x, 100x
K = 10x, 25x, 100x
A = 15x, 30x, 125x
Purple flower = 20x, 50x, 300x
Pale pink flower = 25x, 75x, 400x
Warrior maiden = 50x, 150x, 1,000x
Five Free Spins Scatters = 50x
Black horse Scatters = 2x 10x, 50x your total bet
Warrior Maiden Bonus Features & Free Spins
The best thing about Warrior Maiden is that it operates a Win Both Ways mechanic. This means that wins can run from right to left as well as the more traditional left to right. It’s a win-boosting feature in its own right, but as all true slots fans know, it’s the free spins bonus that delivers the very best returns.
Land a Free Spins scroll Scatter on each of the five reels to initiate the game’s Free Spins bonus round. You’ll be awarded eight Free Spins on a new set of reels. And if you manage to land five more Free Spins scrolls, you’ll receive another eight Free Spins. There are up to 240 to be won in total!
We can’t fault Warrior Maiden for its looks or the way it sounds. This is the sort of game that you’ll want to sit down and while away some time with when you want to kick back for a while. So it’s disappointing to see the low RTP, as well as a lack of volatility details. We suggest you play this game for free until we find out more about it.
