Kingdoms Rise: Sands of Fury Slot Review (Playtech)
This is part of a trilogy in a series of slots that have been released simultaneously by Playtech. Sands of Fury is a new development by Playtech and just like the other two kingdoms rise slots, it is also based on fantasy.
With this slot, Playtech has shifted from the cold forest to a warmer region, precisely a desert.
Sands of Fury is set on 5 reels and a total of 20 pay lines. Although the slot does not seem to offer very good winning combinations, you will get to benefit from the progressive jackpots that are available here.
Features are what make or break a slot and with Sands of Fury, I came across a number of great features like a re-spin, Character Wilds, locked wilds as well as a Wild Fury bonus. Here, the RTP currently stands at 96.23% and included in this percentage is the token system as well as the slot’s progressive jackpot.
Betting and Prizes
With Sands of Fury, there is no excuse as the betting cost starts from the lowest (0.010) to a high of $1,000.
If you are lucky enough to form a good winning combo will the help of wilds, then you a payout of 12.50x total stake. With such a payout, the best you can get with a single spin is 250x total stake ($250,000). For a jackpot, this is on the lower side and I was not really impressed by that.
However, all is not lost as the slot comes with a number of progressive jackpots with the Epic Jackpot offering the highest payout.
Kingdoms Rise: Sands of Fury Slot Features
The slot’s feature vary and they come in many forms like the Character Wilds (has a total of 4 different warriors). These wilds seem to be the major thing in this slot and they are usually located on the top part of the reels.
To trigger the Wild Fury bonus, try and land it on the correct reels. This then triggers the next and so on. It also locks the wilds in their position awaiting the next round.
Another great feature with this video slot is the 5 re-spins that are offered by the Shield & Swords symbol. You can easily locate it on the top reel of the slot. With its help, you can be able to turn all characters on that particular reel into wilds. However, note that at times, the chain symbol may show up and this will end the re-spins.
The game uses the same shop feature as other series and you can use the collected tokens to buy additional features.
Theme & Design
The kingdom series basically applies a fantasy theme. With Sands of Fury, the kingdom is set on a desert region. The five major symbols feature a lot of warriors with a good example being the woman donning a Medusa-like crown. There is another woman armed with a bow, barbarians, a lizard warrior as well as a mage. The low-value symbols are marked in gemstones.
Sands of Fury looks has little different for the others that are in the kingdom series. It is a fun game and I love the fact that the slot offers progressive jackpots that go a long way in boosting winnings.
