Zhanshi from RTG places you on the battlefield where you appear to be getting ready to lay siege to a massive fortress. It’s one of those traditional Eastern fortresses, so you’d better be ready to go all out if you want to conquer it. You’ll see fired arrows stuck in the ground around you, suggesting that the battle has already begun. Zhanshi is one of RTG’s slots and brings forth some wonderful graphics to allow you to really get immersed in the theme. So, if you’re ready to don your warrior helmet and armour and set off on your siege, Zhanshi is ready for you.
The symbols that appear upon the reels start with playing cards running from 9 through to A. There are also symbols of swords and a shield, while a red flag is another. A white horse is also present as a symbol on the reels, and this one operates as the highest paying standard symbol, providing maximum rewards of 5,000x your in-play stake.
The battle takes place on a layout of five reels and three rows, which is standard for a video slot, but at the same time, RTG has chosen to add a set of 20 pay lines into the game. You can customise the active number of these if you like though, which is done simply by using the relevant up and down buttons on the screen. You’re also able to change your wager in exactly the same way. This game allows you to choose from bets between 20p and £2 per spin.
You’ll be able to see a progressive jackpot on display in the top-right corner of the screen. The value of this continues to increase as you and other players continue playing the slot. It takes roughly 1.5% of the stake from each bet to increase the value, but you can win the whole amount in one go completely at random. So, just keep spinning the game’s reels and you never know, you could be the next big winner.
Zhanshi himself is the warrior that acts as this slot’s wild symbol. You’ll see him stood beside his white horse, and if he does come into view, he will substitute for all other standard symbols within the game.
The only symbol that this rule does not apply to is the scatter addition. Five of the wild Zhanshi warrior symbols coming into view on a winning pay line will reward you with 10,000x your wager.
Feature 1 – The wild symbol is also responsible for activating the first of this game’s feature rounds. Whenever three or more of the symbol come into view anywhere during base gameplay, you must choose one of them to reveal a number of free spins.
You’ll get 15, 20 or 25 free spins, and during the feature round, all temple symbols are changed into the warrior wild or the high-paying horse symbol. Furthermore, all winning combinations will provide you with a triple pay-out for the duration of this round.
The symbol of the temple is the one that operates as this game’s scatter addition. This icon can appear anywhere on the reels and it will still reward you with a pay-out even if it isn’t on a pay line. So, if you spin five of them into view anywhere on screen, then you will see your wager multiplied by 500x over. Additionally, this symbol will trigger the second of the slot’s feature rounds.
Feature 2 – You’ll get 10 free spins from this round, which is triggered whenever three or more of the scattered temple symbols come into view. During this free spins round, all winning combinations pay out with a double multiplier.
Furthermore, the feature is re-triggered whenever any three or more mixed scatters and/or warrior wilds appear.
Zhanshi is a fun game, featuring a well-executed theme and some impressive graphics throughout. Additionally, it has a wonderful pair of free spins rounds, a wild and a scatter symbol, topped off with the progressive jackpot to keep the base game exciting. Really, it checks all the boxes for us, and we’re sure it will for you, too.
