Heavy Metal Warriors Online Slots finds its origin in the theme based on the 1977’s comic strips and fantasy fiction magazine, Heavy Metal Magazine. The magazine grew steadily in popularity, and a total of 136 issues were published.
The game offers a refreshing variation from the usual images associated with the heavy metal culture: guitar-trashing and general pulverising of the auditory senses by a group of Bad-Beards on a badly lit and dingy stage. The colours used are resplendent and the images are inviting rather than appalling.
Heavy Metal Warriors is a 3D video slot featuring 5 reels and 243 paylines.
Heavy Metal Warriors Symbols
The symbol with the largest payout is represented by the dark haired warrior. Landing a combination of 5 in a row will tally a total win of 5 000 credits. Following not too far behind with a winning total of 2 500 credits for 5 in a row, is the warrior seemingly ready for combat with a face painted for battle. The auburn-haired warrior pays a total of 1 000 credits for the same feat, and the blonde warrior a total of 500 credits. Standard playing cards also feature, ranging from 100 to 400 credits for a winning combination.
Heavy Metal Warriors Free Spins Bonus Round
The free spins bonus round is activated by a combination of 3 or more of the scatter symbol appearing on the reels. The scatter symbol is represented by the Heavy Metal symbol. This is where the picking Bonus comes into play. Simply pick any one of the scatter symbols in order to reveal the total of free spins won. Up to 30 free spins are up for grabs. During these free spins, a warrior will become animated and transform random symbols on the reels into wild symbols.
The wild symbol is represented by a glowing pink shield. The glowing pink shield will substitute for any of the other symbols, except for the scatter symbol. The wild symbol appears only on reels 2, 3 and 4.
Free Spins Round
If the wild symbol appears on the reels during regular play, and expands vertically across the reel, a free spins round will be triggered.
Heavy Metal Warriors Slot Graphics
The graphics are detailed and quite ornate. The reels are poised against a beautiful background depicting a mountainous landscape almost bejewelled by a blazing red sun. The animative effects are imaginative, quite complex and well developed, adding a quality feel to the game.
Heavy Metal Warriors may be played for free or for real money. The game is available in a wide selection of world languages, and runs comfortably on all platforms, including mobile platforms. It is generally available to play in instant play mode, requiring no pre-play registration or downloads, simply register and enjoy.
An Autoplay function is available for the more fast-paced or spendthrifty player, and the music may be turned off by those not leaning toward the heavy metal music genre.
