Warrior Ways Review
WARRIOR WAYS SLOT REVIEW
Which Clan takes over the city’s streets? Warrior Ways is a 5-reel and 1024 ways to win online slot from Hacksaw Gaming with a Japanese warrior theme. The game comes with Clans, Duel Feature, 2 Bonus Games Features – Clash and Conquest, and Buy Feature.
Warrior Ways Slot Symbols
There are 4 Clans in the game – Red Clan, Blue Clan, Green Clan, and Orange Clan. Each Clan has 2 associated symbols, Low paying and High paying symbols. Low symbols are represented as Clan Weapons, and High symbols as Clan Warriors. A Japanese warrior mask is a Wild symbol and substitutes for all symbols. The Wild only appears during Bonus Games.
Warrior Ways Features
A Duel feature triggers when a VS symbol lands directly between two opposing Clan Warrior symbols. The VS symbol appears only on reels 2, 3, and 4. Each Duel has two Duel Multipliers, one for each Clan Warrior. In the base game, the Multipliers can be 1x, 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 10x, 15x, 20x, 25x, 50x, or 100x.
When a Duel ends, the winning Clan Warrior will replace the losing Clan’s low, high, or low and high symbols in view. If the winning Clan Warrior forms a win, the Duel Multiplier then applies to the win.
Warrior Ways comes with 2 Bonus Game features – Clash and Conquest. Land 3 Clash symbols anywhere on the reels to trigger the Clash Bonus and 3 Conquest symbols to trigger the Conquest Bonus.
The feature is divided into 2 phases, the Collect phase, and the Clash phase. The Collect phase starts with 3 spins, and only dead symbols, VS symbols, and Clan Multiplier symbols appear on the reels. Each time a VS symbol lands on reel 3 or a Clan Multiplier lands on reels 1, 2, 4, and 5, the number of remaining spins reset to 3.
The Multiplier values above reels 1, 2, 4, and 5 starts with 1x, and each landed Clan Multiplier increases the multiplier value by 2x-100x on that specific reel. There is also an Epic Clan Multiplier that can land on reel 3. When it hits, it will multiply all the collected Clan Multipliers by 2x.
After the Collect stage is finished, the Clash stage starts. The number of spins in the Clash stage is determined by the amount of collected VS symbols. Each spin guarantees a Duel feature that works in the same way as in the base game, only this time, the Clan Warriors take the specific Multiplier gathered in the Collect phase.
The Conquest Bonus awards 10 Free Spins. Each Conquest symbol that lands during the feature award 1 additional spin. In Free Spins, there are four Clan Banners around the game. When a Clan loses a fight, the corresponding Clan Banner takes damage. After the Banner has been damaged twice, the Clan is eliminated from the feature, and all of that Clan’s symbols are removed from the reels, plus 1 extra spin is awarded.
