Three Kingdoms Introduction
Gameplay Interactive are renowned for their immersive and playable pokies with strong themes, and they’ve delivered again with Three Kingdoms. If you like your free pokies with plenty of great bonus features and a really strong storyline - not to mention some gorgeous 3D graphics - then Three Kingdoms with its fast-paced action and strong sense of atmosphere will be a must-play game.
Step back in time to 300 AD, when concepts like honour and destiny aren’t just empty buzzwords. You’ll find yourself in ancient China in the days before the Jin Dynasty. The country was divided into the Three Kingdoms of the title - Wei, Shu and Wu - and tribal warlords fought for supremacy. It’s this sense of menace, foreboding and uncertainty that the game superbly captures.
There’s none of the garish red and gold generic colour palette of a standard ‘Chinese theme’ here - instead, the colours are mean and moody, and the game is framed by a menacing sky.
With five reels and 30 paylines plus a wide and flexible range of staking options, this is a game to suit every type of pokie player out there. The player controls are really user-friendly, allowing you complete control over your coin values and active paylines. If you’re feeling particularly feisty, go all-in with one click on the max bet button. Obviously, the more you bet, the bigger the rewards, with payline wins being multiplied by line bet.
The Three Kingdoms Paytable
We’re going to assume you’ve bet one coin per line and give you the maximum five on a reel winnings: Spear: 100 coins; Horse: 125 coins; Sword: 150 coins; Fan: 200 coins; Princess: 300 coins; Warrior: 800 coins; Warlord: 1500 coins; Emperor: 2000 coins; Cherry blossom wilds. As is standard in pokie gameplay, the wild substitutes for all others except the Temple scatter to form winning combinations.
Temple Scatter and Free Spin Bonus
Spin three or more of these symbols on one of your active paylines and you’ll trigger the free spins bonus. Time to pick a hero and see what your free spin reward will be - 15 free spins where the entire first reel is covered in the Emperor symbol? Ten free spins with a random expanding wild? Or 20 straight free spins? The choice is yours, and we like the random element of luck in this bonus.
You’ll have two chances to trigger these - either land the princess on the middle reel, flanked by fans, or the emperor and then the horse side by side in that order. Pick a fan to reveal your prize, or give thanks to the emperor for rewarding your courage on the reels with a 2x multiplier.
Conquer the City Bonus
Unleash your inner warlord by landing three or more map symbols on any active payline. Select the city and unleash your troops to loot the riches.
Keep your wits about you and you’ll play for the multi-level progressive Jewel jackpot. Fortune favours the brave, and you’ll need to go big and risk it all for ultimate riches.
