Game Review: 1942 Sky Warrior

The title for 1942 Sky Warrior Slot game.

There are plenty of battle-themed slots out there, but there are few that have World War 2 (WW2) as their inspiration. Red Tiger Gaming has created an online casino game that is named after one of the most important years in WW2 when the Allies won the Battle of Midway to turn the tide in the Pacific War. 

History buffs, WW2 enthusiasts and fans of fighter planes who play slots online are going to be thrilled by this game — for its theme and the winnings that it has on offer. Let’s take an in-depth look at 1942 Sky Warrior and what to expect when you play this excellent online slot.

Game overview

Red Tiger Gaming is known for its high-quality production of online slot machines and 1942 Sky Warrior comes with the impressive graphics and dynamic gameplay that we’ve come to expect from all of the company’s online slots.

As mentioned, this is one of the best online slots for those who have a fascination with history and will thrill anyone interested in fighter jets. The game takes place on a 5-reel, 4-row grid that comes with 30 paylines. 

There’s an RTP of 95.68%, which is about average for an online slot and it’s a high volatility game. This means it doesn’t pay out very frequently, but when it does, the payouts are usually larger.

Feature-wise, the base game is filled with awesome gameplay and some great extra features to increase your bankroll, such as the wild feature. Then there’s the Free Spins bonus feature to really look forward to.

How to play

First things first, set your bet amount at the bottom left of your screen. The betting limits are $0.20 and $100 and you can use the + and – buttons to change your amount. You’ll also find the auto and turbo spin buttons at the bottom of the reels if you don’t feel like manually selecting every spin yourself.

You’ll find the settings like sound, rules and more at the top right of the screen – so make sure you check those out before you get started. All that’s left is simply pressing the spin button, which can be found at the bottom right of the paytable. Click this and you’re ready for takeoff!

Graphics

The graphics of 1942 Sky Warrior are simply spectacular and you’ll find the screen set against an epic sky battle with fighter jets in every direction you look. The symbols on the reels are incredibly realistic and well animated. 

You’ll find the usual playing cards, which are the low-value symbols. Then there are the five different pilot symbols. These will pay out as follows when you land more than three on a payline:

  • Pilot with no headgear: three – 1.7x, four – 2.5x, five – 5x your original stake
  • Pilot wearing brown: three – 1.4x, four – 2x, five – 4x your original stake
  • Female pilot: three – 1.1x, four – 1.5x, five – 3x your original stake
  • Pilot wearing blue: three – 0.9x, four – 1.2x, five – 2.4x your original stake
  • Pilot wearing gray: three – 0.6x, four – 0.9x, five – 1.8x your original stake

The scatter symbol is the big gold A with wings and is the symbol that will trigger the Free Spins round. The wild symbol is a star with the letter W on it. This will substitute for all symbols except the scatter and will help form winning combinations.

Features

The Special Wild feature is triggered during the base game. You can land two wilds per spin and if they are part of a low-value winning combination, then the low-value symbol will be removed and new or existing symbols will be allowed to cascade down the reel and fill the gaps.

When the wilds are part of a win that involves high-value symbols, those symbols will simply be upgraded. If there are both high- and low-value symbols involved in a wild win, then the high-value symbols are upgraded before the low-value symbols are removed and replaced.

Bonuses and jackpots

The Free Spins round is the only bonus round in 1942 Sky Warrior and it is triggered by landing three scatter symbols on rows 1, 3 and 5 at the same time. You will be awarded 10 free spins, where you are guaranteed to land one wild symbol per spin. You’ll get five more free spins if you land three scatters during the Free Spins round.

Any wild features that are triggered in the Free Spins round will stay active for the entire feature. This means your low-value symbols are permanently removed, while the high-value symbols will have a permanent upgrade. This could lead to some big wins during your free spins.
