3 Kingdoms Introduction
A fearsome battle on the ocean waves is taking place between three generals - Sun Quan, Liu Bei and Cao Cao, and you can get in on the action to try and win some big cash prizes on stacked reels. Stunning 3D graphics make this pokie a visual treat, with flaming warships set against a pink and orange sunset as the battle rages.
The three generals are fierce, each wearing a different coloured suit of armour and carrying enormous swords, as they fight for glory at the end of the Han dynasty. The Battle of Red Cliffs actually took place in AD208-9 and was a massive naval conflict with between 270,000 and 850,000 soldiers taking part.
The reels are in a 5x3 combination and there are 25 fixed paylines, with icons including the card symbols 9 to Ace, a gold helmet on a cushion, scimitars, a ship and a red flag with a gold dragon. The music is dramatic too - it’s traditional Chinese music, with nice jingles when you spin a winning combo.
How to play
While you can start playing straight away, the complexity of this pokie means it might not be suitable for inexperienced gamblers. Experiment with some of our other games if you want to start with something easier. Set your coin value from 0.01 to 0.50 and number of coins from 1 to 10 on each line, for a 0.25 total minimum bet and 125.00 total maximum bet.

If you’re lucky enough to spin this on the first, third and fifth reels, you’ll be taken to the Battle of Red Cliffs round.
This Free Spins round will see you choose between Vanity for 20 free spins, Intrigue for 10 free spins or All-Out War for 5 free spins.You can earn more free spins if the Temple scatter lands on reels 1, 3 and 5 during this feature.
