On the Path of War
Domnitors is taking place at the heart of a major conflict between different factions in the Romanian countryside. The reels are framed with weapons and red, floating banners with the dark Transylvanian forest in the background. Torches light up the scene, while a thick fog covers the rest of the landscape.
Domnitors has an epic look and a really original theme, to say the least. We have never had the occasion to delve into that particular corner of history, and the trip looks very promising. The graphic quality is top-notch, and the Softswiss developers have clearly done a great job setting up an original atmosphere for their new title.
Big Wins Ahead
Domnitors features 5 reels but only 9 paylines, which is a little surprising given the game’s modern look and animations. You can bet from 0.90 to 9 credits per turn, but the game’s high volatility is going to make your task a little more difficult than you might have expected. The classic max bet and autospin shortcuts are always here, if you want to speed up the gameplay a little bit.
The paytable of Domnitors is full of diverse weapons, plus some impressive views of various Romanian medieval castles. If you stick to the base game, you can win up to 800 times your current wager at any time. Do keep in mind, however, that the high variance in Domnitors makes it likely that you will have to keep the reels spinning for a while before you score any win.
Defeat Your Enemies on the Battlefield
To boost your chances to win a little bit, Domnitors includes a couple of powerful bonus features. It starts with a golden-rimmed wild symbol, which by definition can replace the other symbols on the reels. Wilds also double the value of the symbols they are associated with. Combinations of wilds only can be hard to find, but they can give you a chance to win a huge x10,000 prize at once.
Scatters cannot be replaced by wild, but at the same time you won’t need to worry about paylines as far as they are concerned. Finding 3 or more of these maps at the same time in Domnitors awards 15 free spins, during which all subsequent cash prizes are automatically multiplied by 3 – even the highest rewards of the game.
Perfect for Risk Lovers
Domnitors is clearly based on a rather tricky gameplay, at least when you start out in the game. Karaoke Party from Microgaming is, surprisingly enough, quite similar in that regard. With only 9 paylines and an equally high volatility, this very different slot game will prove just as challenging as Domnitors – but with a very different soundtrack.
Thunderstruck, another Microgaming creation, is also going to prove challenging for most players. Based on the same gameplay as Domnitors, including very similar bonus features, this electrifying slot game is going to keep you on the edge of your seat right from the beginning. So if you are a risk lover, you can see that the possibilities are almost endless on the slot game market.
New Settings for an Epic Adventure
Trying out Domnitors was a really fun experience for us. Of course the game is a little challenging, and adding a few paylines to bet one wouldn’t be unwelcome, but this was also part of the fun. The sheer size of the rewards available at any time in the game was motivation enough for us to keep going.
Despite its rather short betting range, Domnitors knows how to reward lucky players. Both of its bonus features come with some helpful multipliers, which can take you a little closer to the jackpot, spin after spin. You will probably be attracted to Domnitors because of its epic look, but you will stay for its generous paytable.
