Kingdom’s Rise – Sands of Fury Slot Review
Sands of Fury is just one of the new games in the Kingdoms Rise collection from Playtech. The others are Guardians of the Abyss and Forbidden Forest.
Each of the games has a selection of innovative and fun new features, but the stand out one is the use of in-game currency that enables players to purchase additional special features to enhance your gameplay.
These are fantasy world games of the medieval variety and each has its own set of characters and features to get to know. Each game is markedly different.
The soundtracks and graphics are of the highest quality as you would expect from Playtech. The audio really helps to immerse the player in the world of the game and we are particularly impressed by the audio that kicks in during bonus rounds.
You can play from just 10p, right up to £2,000 per spin! There are a range of networked progressive jackpots on offer that can be triggered at any time.
Look out for the Features Shop. You will be offered the chance to snap up tokens as you play, up to 15 at a time and you collect these to purchase additional game features to aid towards your progress and wins. Features start at around 300 tokens to obtain.
How to play
Sands of Fury is a 5 reel, 20 payline video slot where all wins pay left to right and all 20 paylines are automatically in play on every spin. Wins are a multiple of the line bet, with wagers ranging in size from 10p to £1,000 per spin.
- Five different character wild symbols
- Hitting 5x any wild symbol = 250x line bet (up to £12,500)
- 5x Raz symbols = 150x line bet (up to £7,500)
- 5x Kren symbols = 120x line bet (up to £6,000)
- 5x Wolkar symbols = 80x line bet (up to £4,000)
- 5x Erinna symbols = 80x line bet (up to £4,000)
- 5x Zaldar symbols = 60x line bet (up to £3,000)
Wild Fury respins feature
Each reel has an additional feature reel above it. When a character wild symbol appears on the main reel and the feature reel on the same spin, the feature reel becomes active and awards a respin, during which the wild symbol remains locked in place. Respins continue until a chain symbol appears in the feature reel. Additional bonus features can be activated, including 5 free spins, during which any locked wilds remain in place
Graphics and Sounds
Sands of Fury is set in a desert kingdom, and it has a design colour scheme and design to match. However, the character symbols are created in bright, almost luminous colours and so produce an eye-catching contrast. The soundtrack and score are perhaps more spare than in the other games in the series, but this nevertheless creates a real sense of awe and foreboding.
There are three separate progressive jackpots that can be won when playing any of the games in the Kingdoms Rise series:
A networked progressive jackpot that continues to increase until it is won, and so can grow to truly enormous proportions.
Power Strike Jackpot
The jackpot is awarded randomly before the prize pool reaches the prize amount that is displayed.
Daily Strike Jackpot
The jackpot randomly pays out a set amount by the day and time that is displayed.
The Kingdoms Rise series of games is a real feather in Playtech’s cap and is likely to see them add even more awards to their cabinet.
Everything about the games is new and innovative and invites players along for the ride to discover all the new features on offer.
