Guardians of the South is an online video slot designed and developed by WMS. You might think that the title sounds familiar as this game was created off the back of another successful WMS game ‘Guardians of the North’. However, instead of a polar bear guarding the pile of gold, the riches in Guardians of the South are protected by fierce Egyptian Felines.
This online video slot is a five-reel, 40 pay line game with lots of opportunities to win big. Packed full of bonus features and with a chance to unlock a 75x multiplier, the slick graphics and pleasing soundtrack will keep you entertained as you spin to win.
Starting with the lowest paying symbols, the game uses playing cards Jack, Queen, King, and Ace. For three of these symbols, you will get two coins, four symbols = five coins and five symbols =10 coins.
Higher paying symbols include an ornate bowl, a treasure chest, a gold ring, a gold necklace, a pharaoh’s crown, and a golden gemstone. The crown and gemstone are the most valuable and will pay out 150 coins for five of a kind.
Finally, the scatter symbol is represented by a golden tablet with a black cat decorated inexpensive jewellery. The scatter symbol is significant as it unlocks free spins, bonus features as well as giving you a multiplier of up to 25x your bet. Wild symbols are easy to recognise and will be unlocked in the bonus features.
The majestic scatter symbol gives you random bonuses
Landing one or two scatter symbols on any given spin will give you the chance to unlock one of the six random bonus rounds which include:
- A pick’em game that unlocks either a multiplier on your winnings or instant cash win up to 75x your bet.
- All poker symbols turn into one high paying symbol, creating a chance for huge winning combinations.
- Stacked wilds
- Completely wild reels
- 17 wilds added randomly to the screen
Free spins made juicier with added wilds
The sixth bonus feature to come from the scatter symbol is unlocked when you land three or more of the guardian cats. During the free spins game, players can choose between three different options depending on how volatile they want the game to be.
Wilds will be added to the reels. The more wilds you add, the less free spins you will receive. Adding 50 wilds will get you eight free spins, 35 wilds will get you 16 free spins, and 20 added wilds will get you 30 free spins.
Just note that the extra wilds will be added to each reel.
