Pokie Review


A legendary Chinese battle is the basis for this 5-reel game from High 5, one of the more unusual free online pokies available to you here.

Head into battle

Red Cliffs took place in 208 AD, when warriors from the north and south of China joined together to try and overthrow the Han Dynasty. Between this and the Jin dynasty, three kingdoms arose, each vying for power of the country.

Warlords San Quan and Liu Bei are depicted on the reels here as they prepare to fight, as they did in the epic war film Red Cliff, directed by John Wood in 2008. The game is set against a typical Chinese building, with the title set into the tiled roof and the reels set against a dark blue background. As well as card symbols 10 to Ace in purple, blue, orange, green and red, there are jade and gold dragons and warriors themselves. Other icons are the sundial, armour, scroll, vase and water holder.

The sounds are crisp and clear and wild piano music and spinning gold wilds liven it up should you spin a top win.

Gameplay

Just like in a battle, it’s all about strategy, so you need to set the number of bet levels and paylines, from 1 to 40, to play.

To climb to the top of the Red Cliffs and bag the top prizes, you’ll want to trigger the collection bonus by spinning golden dragons on the middle three reels to get seven free games.
During these, players can collect five scatter symbols which appear across all five reels and are the sundial, water holder, armour, scroll and vase. If you’re lucky enough to bag all five of these, another set of free games will be triggered. A possible total of 28 free games is up for grabs, and if you spin all five symbols in the final round, your credits are multiplied by 10.

Prizes to be had for spinning between two and five icons during the collection bonus or the main game, include poker symbols paying between 2x and 30x your wager. Players can also net up to 80x their line bet for the jade or golden dragons or between 180x and 200x for the three warlords.

While playing the free games, you might also get access to the super stacks feature, where all stacked symbols can be turned into one for the chance of getting multiple wins. The symbol they turn into is determined by you picking a golden dragon. As if that weren’t enough for one pokie, there is also the wild Red Cliffs icon, which can bring in 5000x your bet if you spin five. The wilds also substitute all other symbols except for the five scatters.

Conclusion

As we’ve mentioned before, both the battle and the film were epic, and Red Cliffs the pokie is equally magnificent. There are plenty of exciting features offering some top prizes. The graphics are clear and the symbols unusual, so why not give it a go here.
