About

For some time now there’s been something massive brewing on the horizon. Turning the once blue skies a foreboding grey and painting the landscape different shades of darkness. We thought it was just another winter squall rolling across our vast island continent. However, we can see now that it’s actually a supercharged new release by the name of Storm Lords.

Alternating between a rainy mountaintop and peaceful cherry tree grove background, Storm Lords is an oriental-themed game that’s loosely inspired by a popular Hong Kong comic book series. As such, it boasts a strong storyline whereby two elements of nature, Cloud and Wind, are pitted against each other in a battle for atmospheric supremacy. In short, Storm Lords is an ear-splitting title with more action than a category five hurricane.

Your role in this larger-than-life power struggle is to try and trigger any one of the game’s three feature rounds and walk away with a top award 50,000 times bet per line. An achievement that’s much easier said than done. Although the fact that the Cloud and Wind characters can cover select reels and substitute for all symbols does make this tempest of a title a little less daunting. As does the maelstrom of massive payout opportunities it offers the further you progress into the game.

Gameplay

The vivid graphics are probably the first thing you’ll notice when initially launching this new online pokie. The more you familiarise yourself with the gameplay though, the more you’re realise there’s much more to Storm Lords than its spectacularly rendered interface.

The playing experience for one is incredibly smooth. With an emphasis on fast action and multiple feature rounds for players to trigger. The good thing here though is that many traditional online pokie elements are also included. Such as the golden rule that all symbols pay left to right except scatters, which pay in any position.

Another awesome thing about Storm Lords’ gameplay is that the two main characters play a central role. This means you can expect to see both Cloud and Wind cover the entirety of reels two and four when they appear, thereby setting you up for some seriously electrifying wins.

Of course, we’d be remiss if we didn’t talk about the feel of the game. Which by way of stellar visuals, exciting animations and traditional Chinese folk music creates an atmosphere that can switch between menacing and positive at the drop of a lightning bolt. A feature of this game that’ll make you feel anything but under the weather.

Symbols

Playing card numbers represent low paying symbols in Storm Lords while the secondary-character icons represent high paying symbols. The green Amulet is the game’s scatter symbol alongside the Treasure Coin, which also functions as an additional triggering symbol. As for the main characters, Cloud and Wind, they are Storm Lords’ wild symbols and as such they substitute for all symbols except the Amulet and Treasure Coins.

Feature Rounds

The feature rounds in Storm Lords include a Free Games feature round and a Treasure Coin feature round. The Free Games feature begins when 3 or more scattered Amulets appear in a normal game, during which time you have the chance to choose between either a Wild Reels or Treasure Spins free game round. Note that the Treasure Coin feature can be triggered during free games and that all free games are played at the lines and bet of the triggering game.

Treasure Coin

Let’s begin with the Treasure Coin feature round first off, which is triggered when six or more Treasure Coins appear anywhere on the reels. Upon activating the Treasure Coin feature round, 3 respins will be instantly awarded with the triggering Treasure Coins held in position. If an additional Treasure Coin appears during these respins, it’s held for the remainder of the feature round and the number of remaining respins resets to 3. Once all respins have finished, the value displayed on the Treasure Coins is paid out. Note that in order to win the maximum amount, all 15 positions on the reels must be filled by the Treasure Coins during the respins.

Wild Reels

During the Wild Reels feature round, 6 free games are awarded, and the Cloud and Wind characters are held on reels two and four. This feature can be retriggered with 6 extra free games added to the current feature.

Treasure Spins

Choose the Treasure Spins feature round, and you’ll also receive 6 free games. Instead of the Cloud and Wind characters being held on certain reels though, Treasure Coins will take over all positions on reel five. This feature can be retriggered, adding an additional 6 extra free games to the feature.

Where to Play

There’s no need to scale a windswept peak or walk through a field of flowering cherry blossom trees to play Storm Lords, given that this new online pokie is available to play at Fair Go casino from Wednesday, 21st August. We do, however, suggest that you come prepared for some hurricane-force winnings if you intend on playing it via your mobile, laptop, desktop or tablet. Otherwise, you’ll no doubt rue the mist opportunity to spin and win big on this soon to be Fair Go favourite.
