There are a number of World War II themed slots on the net, but very few online video slots actually try to take on the mighty theme of The Great War, known to us today by its more modern name of World War I. The Great War really tries to bring the tragic trench-based war to our screens with some realistic imagery, including tanks, battle cruisers, destroyers, early aircraft, zeppelins, machine guns, cannon and of course, the trench-firing soldiers themselves. The Great War is a 5-reel, 50-payline video slot, which offers a non-progressive jackpot worth 200x your total bet. Players can choose coin sizes which range from 0.01 up to 5.00 in total, and all 50 of the paylines can be adjusted as you see fit. Minimum and maximum wagers in The Great War, range from a low of just 0.01 per line, per spin, up to a high of 250.00 per spin, respectively.
Two special icons star in The Great War. The first of these is of course, a wild icon. When The Great War logo appears in the base game or in the free spins bonus, it can replace all other icons in the game, with the exception of the scatter symbol. Wilds can only appears on the second, third, fourth and fifth reels in this slot.
The scatter icon is the Zeppelin (or blimp, if you don’t know what a Zeppelin is). Scatter icons can reward players with 2x, 10x, or 50x their total bet as scattered wins, if 3, 4 or 5 of them appear in any positions on the reels.
In order to win the non-progressive jackpot, players need to line up 5 of the airplane icons on any active payline in The Great War.
Scatter icons do much more than just offer scattered wins, though. Landing 3 scatter icons in any positons on the reels will see players land 10 free games. Players will pocket 12 free spins if they find 4 scatters on the reels. Find all 5 scatters and you’ll get to enjoy a free spins bonus consisting of 15 free games. One downside to this free spins bonus is that they cannot be triggered again whilst the bonus is in session. No multipliers are added to the winnings, either. On the plus side, any wilds that do appear during this bonus will become sticky wilds, and remain in position for the duration of the free spins bonus.
