Age of Conquest Slot Review
Microgaming has a brand new slot to add to their already impressive collection, and in this case the exclusive release is called Age of Conquest, and it’s designed by Neon Valley Studios. They came up with a game which has a fantasy theme and several good features, mostly revolving around wild reels, always exciting to see.
The 5x3 reels which will spin in Age of Conquest deliver 20 active lines each round, and in a best case scenario that could turn into a jackpot of up to 1,000x the stake, or $200,000. A game which has wild reels, a Diamond collection feature, scatters and free spins, it should be enough to keep things fun. A 96.23% RTP will keep things fair long-term, while its Medium volatility is the kind that players of all types can find appealing.
Age of Conquest Betting and Prizes
$0.20 is the smallest bet that Age of Conquest allows to be used, and at that level you’d have $0.01 for each line. Select one of the many other higher options, with the cap being at $200 per spin, or $10 for each line.
Look at the wild symbol, the star of this slot machine, to find the way to the top jackpot of 1,000x the stake, or up to $200,000 cash. Landing a screen filled with wilds will do that, with each full line where they form a combo paying 50x the stake.
It’s not the type of game to pay a huge prize, more like an average one, and the same kind of risk of losing it all quickly is present, so you could say it’s average in every regard. A medium volatility slot then, one that a lot of players would end up enjoying. RTP is set to a healthy 96.23%.
The possibility to get entire reels covered by wilds is a major part of what makes Age of Conquest exciting. First though, you need to collect the Diamond symbols if they appear, and store them in a special meter at the top of each column. Get two Diamonds for the same column, and the Wild Reels feature comes up.
Once the Wild Reels feature is triggered, the reel which activated it will have only wilds on it, for the next 2 rounds. It’s a nice way to improve the odds of either forming more regular wins, or to have wilds creating their own combos.
As for the way to get the free spins, the scattered Throne icons need to be present on three reels at the same time. The next step will be for you to select the variant of the free spins that you prefer. You can go with 25 free spins where only 1 reel is wild, with 8 free spins that have 2 wild reels, or with 2 free spins that get 3 wild reels. Depending on the type of risk that you want to take, low, medium or high, pick one of the three.
Theme & Design
You can expect a fantasy style experience here, with knights in golden armor, and with half-naked women, these being two of the top regular symbols. You have the Wild symbol, Throne scatter and the Diamond as well, for features. The lesser symbols range from the War Horse, to the Gryphon, Sword & Shield, or the Blue Vial. The lowest value positions get the Royals.
I think Age of Conquest will be the type of game that players like, it’s doing enough feature wise for that to be the case. On the other hand, don’t come in expecting a huge top jackpot, the volatility is not high enough for something like that.
