Travel to the far North to face mighty warriors on the slot from NoLimit City. Barbarian Fury is pitting you against three of the noble savages in a high volatility reel ride with XNudge Roaring Wilds, Barbarian Respins and a Fury Spins bonus round. The bravest spinners can reap rewards worth up to 8,785 times their bet.
Barbarian Fury is a video slot with five reels, four rows and 25 fixed pay lines. Wins are awarded for three to five matching symbols on a line from left to right only. You can join the fierce Norse warriors on desktop or mobile from 0.25 to 100 credits per spin. The game has high volatility (9/10) with a default RTP of 96.06%. Some operators might offer it with the secondary RTP setting of 94.11%, always read the help file to find out which version you will be playing.
Given the ruthless history and countless harrowing tales surrounding the barbarian hoards, the design and graphics must have a rugged nature to bring the spirit of the mighty warriors who would create apocalyptic mayhem wherever they appeared. The creators at NoLimit City chose a snowy Nordic forest scene with wavering fog as the background to an awe-inspiring game window held down by heavy chains and ornamented with skulls. The three warriors and beastly bear feature prominently on the reels as fully stacked symbols while an epic soundtrack gives the entire gameplay a sinister yet suspenseful aura.
The pay symbols start at the low end with card royals from 10 through to A, held on warrior shields and awarding 2x to 3x your bet for a single five of a kind. They are joined by three grim-looking warriors, all appearing as a 4-stack symbol and each carrying their bird of prey- a male with battle axes and an owl, a shieldmaiden with an eagle and what is presumably their bearded leader with a raven. Hit five on a line to win 4x to 10x your stake.
A roaring bear held in chains is the xNudge wild symbol (more to that in a short while), appearing on reels two, three and four only and substituting for all regular symbols. An ice wolf marked with the word itself acts as the scatter.
Barbarian Fury Slot Features
Barbarian Fury is a wild game that comes with the volatility to match the fierce warriors and ample features to create their usual mayhem, only that this time they are confined to a set of slot reels. NoLimit resurrected the xNudge Roaring Wilds multiplier feature that players who tried Tombstone will remember fondly as it has the potential to lead to insane win multipliers. In the base game, it tops at x12 while in the free spins it will keep growing without resetting.
Here’s how the xNudge Roaring Wilds work. Firstly, they are a 4-symbol stack at all times in the base game, Barbarian Respins and Fury Spins. Any landing on reels two, three or four will always expand to cover the entire reel. Should they appear in partial view only, then each row they nudge up or down to expand to full height will increase the win multiplier by x1. For example, landing one on rows three and four will see it nudge twice for an x3 multiplier. Two or three multiplier wilds in view are added by each other, leading to a potential win multiplier on a spin of x12. Multipliers reset before the next spin starts.
NoLimit also included a random feature that can lead to the maximum win in the base game, coming in at a mighty 2,000x your bet. In the base game, the Barbarian Respin can trigger anytime you land three matching warrior symbols in partial or full view. All triggering symbols will nudge into full height and lock in to place for one free respin to potentially land more matching warrior symbols. xNudge Roaring Wilds will also be locked in but will not help to trigger the feature itself. You will always need matching three warrior symbols for that.
To hit the previously mentioned win in the base game, you will need three bearded warrior symbols to trigger the feature and two xNudge Roaring Wilds, each with the x4 multiplier. A full screen of warrior symbols pays 250x bet, take that by x8 from the xNudge multipliers and voila, 2,000x bet. No simple feat, but this slot is a mean machine and won’t hand you the victory that easily.
The reel battle will reach its climax in the Fury Spins feature which is triggered when you hit three or more wolf scatters anywhere on the reels in one spin. Each scatters will nudge down until it disappears at the bottom with each nudge awarding +1 free spin. During the round, any scatter landing will add +1 free spins for each nudge, no limits.
Two twists will have a large impact on your potential winnings. The Barbarian Respin will always trigger when three matching warrior symbols land in full or partial view. Plus, the xNudge Wild Multiplier will not reset, instead, it will keep growing every time an xNudge Roaring Wild appears in a free spin.
NoLimit City is proving yet again that they have become a creative force in online gaming and a mighty one at that. After their hilariously good Punk Rocker and fiery Dragon Tribe slots, it was time to unleash the savage warriors on Barbarian Fury. Be warned though, just like the ruthless warriors it is an utterly volatile game. The Fury Spins round even more so as it will often end with wins of less than 10x your bet, but let the multiplier fire up and then land top symbols and you could win up to 8,785 times your bet.
