Kingdoms Rise: Sands of Fury Slot Review

Swords, sorcery and fantasy adventure are what you’ll find in Kingdoms Rise: Sands of Fortune. A cast of fearsome warriors do battle to hopefully help you on your quest of attaining the riches of the desert. Stakes in this 5 reel, 20 payline slot game range from between 10p and £1,000 per spin making it a good pick for microstakes players as well as serious high rollers.

Kingdoms Rise: Sands of Fury: Let the battle commence

Set against a desert backdrop, the reels are set against a fortress. Joining the lower value gemstones are 5 more lucrative character symbols. The woman with the magnificent headdress is the best of them, paying 4, 6 or 7.5 times your stake if you land 3, 4 or 5 on a payline. Each of the 5 characters also has its own wild. All of these pay 12.5 times your stake if you hit a 5 in combination.

Kingdoms Rise: Sands of Fury: Wild Fury feature

The set up here is a little unusual. Above the main reels is a set of Feature Reels. Each character has its own Feature Reel. Land a Character Wild in its Feature Reel and it will lock in position for 1 extra spin. Known as the Wild Fury feature, what happens next depends on what symbol lands in the character wild’s Feature Reel window. There are 4 possibilities:

  • Crossed Swords - the Wild locks in place for another spin.
  • Character Symbol - all instances of that character on the reel turn wild.
  • 5 Re-spins Symbol - this awards 5 respins with the character wilds locked.
  • Chain - wilds are unlocked and the feature ends.

Kingdoms Rise: Sands of Fury: Collect tokens to buy features

On any spin, you could see gold token symbols appear. Each one that lands is collected in a meter. Once you have 500 or more tokens, you can head to the Kingdoms Rise shop and buy a feature:

Wild Beast Respins feature

  • Buy this and you’ll see a Wild Beast walk across the reels leaving sticky character wilds.
  • 500 tokens buy 5 respins with 1 locked character wild on reels 4 or 5
  • 1,000 tokens buy 5 respins with 2 locked character wilds randomly added
  • 2,000 tokens buy 5 respins with 3, 4 or 5 locked character wilds
  • If a character wild lands on a reel that doesn’t have any, the Wild Fury feature is activated.

The Queen’s Ritual Bonus

  • This is our old favourite the pick me round. Choose to win cash prizes or other goodies.
  • 300 tokens buy 3 picks
  • 750 tokens buy 4 picks with the chance to land extra picks and a multiplier
  • 1,500 tokens buy 5 picks with the chance to land extra picks, 2 multipliers and a Win All prize.

Kingdoms Rise: Sands of Fury: Kingdoms Rise Jackpot feature

You’ll also have a shot at landing one of 3 jackpot prizes in the Kingdoms Rise Jackpot feature. These can strike at random on any spin. The Epic Jackpot can hit on any spin. The Power Strike must hit by the amount shown. The Daily Strike Jackpot must be triggered by the time specified.

Kingdoms Rise: Sands of Fury: Unusual but entertaining

The gameplay in Kingdoms Rise: Sands of Fury is unusual. That’s certainly the case using tokens to buy features. They can deliver some top action. Add the classy design into the mix and it becomes a very playable game. We’re looking forward to the other slot games in what promises to be an epic Kingdoms Rise series. My favourite is Kingdoms Rise: Guardians of the Abyss.
