Sword of Khans Slot

Sword of Khans Slot

Genghis Khan is rarely invited to visit the reels of online slots and that may be due to his reputation. The emperor of the Mongol Empire is generally perceived as a brutal leader that led invasions which have frequently resulted in massacres of the civilians. The Thunderkick team, however, apparently judged him to be formidable enough to appear in their new slot appropriately named Sword of Khans.

The set-up is simple enough, with 5 reels, 10 paylines and the bet range of €0.10-€100. The theoretical payback is 95.38%, somewhat lower than the industry average and for sure lower than some of the best slots from Thunderkick such as 1429 Uncharted Seas slot machine.

Although the top reward might partially than make up for it. Sword of Khans slot has the potential to pay up to 10,000x the player’s bet!

Why to Play Sword of Khans Slot

  • Free games play with an expanding symbol which may receive a multiplier and facilitate a substantial feature win.
  • It takes only 2 Scatters to retrigger Free Spins which makes it easier to prolong the free-play session.
  • Wide bet range starts at low €10 per spin so players with limited funds can afford more than a few spins.
  • High maximum win of 10,000x the bet.

Why Not to Play?

  • Lack of truly innovative elements
  • Symbol collection includes royals
  • All special features are part of the Free Spins bonus; until you manage to trigger it, you’re stuck with base game wins

Bonus Features

The Sword symbol is both Wild and Scatter. Acting as the latter, it can pay up to 200x your total stake as well as grant access into the bonus round.

Bonus Game

Sword of Khans slot Free Spins feature is activated when a spin delivers a minimum of 3 Swords and it can be retriggered by landing 2 or more Scatters while free-play is still in progress. Whenever you trigger or retrigger the Bonus Game, you’ll win a random number of Free Spins – 5, 7, 8, 9 10, 12 or 15.

Each trigger and retrigger also initiates a random selection of one of the game icons (except for the Sword) which then becomes an expanding symbol for the duration of the feature. If the selected symbol has already been upgraded in such a manner, it will receive a multiplier.

The maximum multiplier applied to the winning combinations that contain the expanding symbol is x3.

Sword of Khans Slot Machine – Our Verdict

To be perfectly honest, we expected more. Thunderkick has produced a few gems in the past and generally tends to wow both visually and feature-wise. Sword of Khans is a decent slot, don’t get us wrong, but it doesn’t impress in any way.

Visuals are as good as we’d expect from any title released in this day and age but the collection includes dreary royals. More than a few other slots use Free Spins with expanding symbols so the bonus round doesn’t surprise either, regardless of the randomly awarded number of spins and the multiplier applied to expanding icon wins.

The best element of the game (and most likely the main motivator to play it) is the win potential which is higher than in most other slots.
