An island long unseen by civilization, where men are shunned and women hold the reigns. It is the intriguing and dangerous land, inhabited by the mighty Amazons. Visiting directly is not recommended, so enjoy the view from the EGT 2015 release. Featuring fierce, powerful women and a lacking soundtrack, Amazons’ Battle has the potential to be great but falls short of it.
The background image is just as static and dull as always, with the massive reels preventing us from seeing much beyond foliage and some rocks. The slot offers players a 5x3 playing field with 30 flexible paylines. That means gamblers can turn some or all paylines on and off in order to adjust their total bet. On top of the standard progressive jackpots we have seen in EGT games, this one also has a free spins bonus.
Play Amazons Battle
Symbols are split into theme-related, higher paying icons and lower paying playing card royals. Wilds are the most valuable symbol, followed by the blonde amazon, the dark-haired one with braided hair, the redhead, the brunette and a tiger. Playing cards from J through A are the lowest paying symbols. Wilds can replace all symbols except for Scatters, while Scatters are used to trigger free spins. Both Wilds and Scatters can appear stacked on the playing field.
How to Play
This is a 5-reel, 3-row title with 30 flexible paylines. Like with other EGT releases, the bet level and spin button have both been rolled into one button. Above the reels, you can see the ticking progressive jackpots, constantly increasing until a win is awarded. Wins are awarded for gathering three identical symbols following one of the active paylines starting from the leftmost reel.
Strategy & Tips
A progressive jackpot can be won after any spin and is triggered entirely at random. Once the special feature is activated, players pick between 12 face-down cards, trying to complete a set of three matching card suit symbols. The first matching set you collect is the progressive jackpot you win.
Collect 7, 8 or 9 Scatters on the second, third and fourth reels and you will receive 7, 15 or 30 free spins, respectively. Free spins cannot be retriggered and are played on a separate reel set. Both Scatters and Wilds can appear stacked.
Finally, you can choose to gamble your existing wins. This takes you to a separate mini-game in which you choose between red and black cards. Pick correctly and your win will be doubled. Pick wrong and you lose everything you earned, including your starting bet.
EGT wisely decided to spend their time to create the mobile version of Amazon’ Battle for phones and tablets. This means you can boot it up at any time and have a few spins with no need to access your computer or laptop.
