Overview: Warrior Graveyard xNudge
The Warrior Graveyard xNudge slot is the most recent Viking adventure game released by provider, Nolimit City. This latest escapade continues on where Nolimit’s previous Viking slot, Barbarian Fury, left off. The battle is over and the heroes are likely looking down on their corpses from Valhalla. Warrior Graveyard xNudge takes place in a graveyard – complete with eerie violin music and a bass drum beating in the background to create a dark atmosphere.
While this might be a sequel of sorts, it’s definitely not the same game as its predecessor. The provider’s signature xNudge mechanic is back to award players with some heavy multipliers, but this latest slot has new features and the RTP has been bumped up to 96.16%.
Symbols and Payouts
The slot incorporates 6 reels with 3 rows and 25 paylines. All winning combinations are formed from left to right with the wager limits ranging between 0.25 and 100. It’s a high volatility machine with a hit frequency of 1 in 4 spins and the maximum win of 9797x the bet.
There are two types of Wild symbols in Warrior Graveyard – the ‘xNudge’ Wilds and the Wild Scatters. The xNudge Wilds are represented by tombstones and substitute for all other symbols except the Scatters. The Wild Scatter symbols function as both Wild and Scatter symbols, as their name suggests. Landing 6 Wild Scatter symbols also pays out the highest value on the paytable which is 6x the bet. This will unlock a free spins feature, but more on that later.
There are 10 regular symbols in total: 5 Warrior Skeleton symbols and 5 Object symbols. The Warrior symbols pay slightly higher than the Object symbols. They are also 3 rows high and able to fill an entire reel. However they can appear only partially on a reel, taking up only one or two slots. The Object symbols are regular symbols that occupy only one slot.
The 5 Warrior symbols have different colours: red, yellow, green, blue, and grey in descending order of value. Landing 6 of the same Warrior symbols will award 6x, 5x, 4x, 3.6x, and 3.2x the bet, respectively. The object symbols are comprised of Viking weapons. There are swords, shields, helmets, battle axes, and regular axes. These symbols pay out 3x, 3x, 2.8x, 2.8x, and 2.8x the bet – in that order.
There are four features in total on Warrior Graveyard xNudge, as well as a Bonus Buy functionality. The first feature we’ll look at is the xNudge Tombstone Wild feature because it’s the star of the show on this slot and the xNudge mechanic was originally developed by Nolimit City, so if anyone knows how to use it for its maximum entertainment potential, it’s them.
The xNudge Tombstone Wilds appear only on reels 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6. They are 3 symbols high but can appear partially on a reel. When an xNudge Wild appears it will always expand to fill the entire reel. Each time it expands to occupy an additional slot (nudges) it increases the multiplier:
- Tombstone Wild lands on an entire reel: 0 nudges = 1x multiplier
- Tombstone Wild covers 2 slots on the reel: 1 nudge = 2x multiplier
- Tombstone Wild covers 1 slot on the reel: 2 nudges = 3x multiplier
The xNudge Tombstone Wild symbols are in play during the base game and the Free Spins features. When more than one of them land, their multipliers are combined to create some huge multiplier values for a winning combination.
Then there is the Warrior Attack feature, which is available in both the base game and the free spins. It works similarly to the Wild Nudge feature. When 3 or more of the same Warrior symbols appear, either partially or entirely, the partial Warrior symbols will nudge to fill the reel. Each nudge increases the multiplier by 1. When all the Warrior symbols have expanded to full view they move to the left most reels and the payout is calculated.
Next up we have the Graveyard Spins. Landing 3, 4, or 5 Scatters will award 8, 10 or 12 free Graveyard Spins. During the feature there’s a meter on the right that displays the progressive multiplier. When Tombstone Wilds land on the screen they increase the multiplier, which is unlimited and remains until the end of the feature. Landing a ‘full-reel’ Tombstone Wild increases the multiplier by one, and each nudge created by Wilds that are expanding increases the multiplier by one.
When Scatters appear during the Graveyard Spins they award an extra free spin. The Warrior Attack feature is still in play during the free spins – and the RTP of the slot increases to 96.2%
Last, but definitely not least, is the Death Spins feature. It is triggered when 6 or more Scatter symbols appear anywhere on the reels, and awards 14 free Death Spins. The Death Spins work the same way as the Graveyard Spins with one exception: the Tombstone Wild symbols become sticky once they have expanded and remain until the end of the feature. The RTP also increases to 96.62%.
Verdict: Warrior Graveyard xNudge
Nolimit City got it right with this video slot. The graphics and audio might not be what some players expect from new slots, but the game play and features are extremely captivating. Players in most regions will be able to buy the Graveyard Spins for 72x the bet and the Death Spins for 666x the bet (max bet 15). Even when you’re not in the free spins features, the base game offers a decent amount of action to keep you engaged. This is classic video slot action at its best.
