Orcs’ Battle slot from Microgaming

Orcs’ Battle slot from Microgaming
Fictional creatures have been around since forever, and they will always keep on appealing to our imagination. Microgaming collaborated with Genesis Gaming in 2013 and added Orc's Battle slot machine to the myriad fantasy-themed slots to meet the demand. The Orcs in this adaptation look nothing like the ones from Lord of the Rings, but more like Shrek on steroids. They are, however, not as sweet and kind as Shrek, but extremely bloodthirsty, aggressive and ready for battle. Nevertheless, they are willing to share their war profits with you as long as you show your courage by spinning the reels. We advise you to try the Thunderstruck Wild Lightning slot by Microgaming for free.

This grisly air adventure slot appeals to all fantasy lovers, and surely the fans of retro slots will appreciate its old-school style as well. The sinister cinematic music enhances the fantasy atmosphere and creates tension as you are spinning the reels, expecting the Free Spins (with Sticky Wilds) to kick in any moment. The battlefield is a 5x4 grid, crossed by an unusual amount of 50 win ways and with an RTP of 95.20% and Medium Volatility, and a maximum win of 50 000 coins (for a full screen of axe symbols), Orcs’ Battle slot machine is unquestionably worth a few spins.

Personal testers’ opinion

  • This is one outdated (graphically) slot, which is not popular at the moment. Be aware of the possible blank prize pool, which can affect your winning odds.
  • The paytable is cheap – with Scatters, which pay only 50x the total bet (not 100x+ for 5OAK, as we are accustom), Wilds, which brings no value to the table, only substitution (even no double payout when they perform their function) and overall low payout for all other symbols. Plus, the game doesn’t have a ‘safety net’ in the base game - supporting recovery from a string of losing spins; therefore, Orc’s Battle slot machine is not a proper selection for the bonus hunters.
  • In the Free Spins, however, the frozen Wilds are proven lucrative, and players can book some decent profits exactly here. Perhaps this slot is an adequate possibility for low rollers, who can use the "hit and run" tactic - to leave the slot directly after a large payout from a Free Spins round.
  • The game resembles pretty much to Lucky Rabbits Loot slot (Microgaming – 2012), in all regards: paytable, RTP and variance, except in respect to the frozen Wilds in the bonus round (here), as opposed to the Wild stacked reels with nudge function (in the rabbits' version).
