This Great Wars slot promises a lot in its name, but this fantastical game doesn’t quite live up to its name.
When you name a game, you have to be aware that players will expect things from this type of machine.
The Great Wars slot deliver that in its game theme. You have your 5×3 reels set against the backdrop of two armies, clashing to get the fire crown and rule all the kingdoms; the human armies on one side, and the dark queens animal frenzy on the other.
It’s beautifully done, and with only 8 symbols on show, plus 2 wild symbols and 1 scatter, all coming stacked and paying out, it made us excited to see glorious wins and thrilling battle spins.
The problem is that if you are expecting great wins in this Great War slot, it won’t deliver.
All the mechanics are there, but the paytable doesn’t pay very much, even on a 4 or 5 of a kind win.
That’s because this is a low variance, easy playing slot. Much like a cute game like the Pragmatic Play Dog House slot can fool you into thinking it’s an easy playing machine (it isn’t), so this Great War video slot fools you into thinking there’s more treasure here than there’s actually is.
If you take away that expectation, what you have is a cool looking Fantasy slot that pays often, if not all that well.
That’s not to say the graphics are more impressive than other StakeLogic Games, but there is something exciting about seeing two different types of wilds appear on screen, or watching stacks of scatter land and give you free spins.
These free spins come often, every 50 spins or so, and you win little. Most of the time if you get more than 10x your bet, count yourself lucky.
Every once in a while, it may surprise you with a 50x your bet wins, but don’t go expecting much more than that. If it happens, it’s time to walk away and read our Crystal Clans slot review instead.

Stacked Symbols: All the symbols come stacked on the reels, even if just two high, but including the wilds and scatters.
Wild: You have two wild symbols. The green shield and the blue shield. These can be mixed together in order to create a winning symbol combination, but they need to be one or the other on a payline to create a win.
Scatters and Free Spins: Scatters (the fire crown) come stacked on reels 2, 3 and 4. How many you land will define how many free spin bonuses you win.
During the Great Wars bonus games, you get richer reels with more wins.
During the Great Wars, no one is the winner, especially you as you struggle to get wins large enough to keep you going through the battles.
Most of the time, you are looking to get to the free spin bonus game where, theoretically, you get larger wins because you get richer reels.
But that's all theoretical because we certainly didn't see those wins. But then again, this Great Wars game is all about little quick wins - skirmishes rather than any great war this game promises. The Game of Thrones slot, this is not.
Great Wars is a 5x3 reel slot game with 30 fixed bet lines, stacked symbols, wilds, scatters, and free spins with richer reels.
