Renowned for spearheading daring invasions in Asia and Europe, medieval Mongol Empire founder Genghis Khan is the inspiration behind the video slot named Horsemen that was released by Bally Wuff. Horsemen features Genghis Khan in his farm and engaging in his pastime. As such, the themes include Mongol Empire, farm life, eagle hunting, music, and horse riding. Still from Bally Wuff; 40 Thieves, Buffalo Bill, and the Roman Legion trilogy are horse-themed. Rival games include Genghis The Great from Skywind Group, Mongol Treasures from Endorphina, and Lucky Horse by High 5 Games.
The traditional Mongolian yurt, golden eagle, saddle, violin, J, Q, K, and A require three, four, or five combinations. Thorse riding Genghis Khan requires two, three, four, or five combinations.
Horsemen Game Characteristics
Horsemen has 5X4 grid, ten symbols, 40 fixed pay lines, two wilds, a two-way side game, and its self-adjusting payouts are from $0.01 to $10000.00. Horsemen has three special symbols, wherein one of the symbols is part-special and part-regular. The scatter that also unlocks the free spins is a white-and-red traditional Mongolian yurt (tent) with two people outside alongside two horses and a smaller black animal grazing beside it. The horse-riding Genghis Khan becomes a Wild only during the free games mode; while a red-and-white “WILD” doubles up as a substitute.
Horsemen’s four high-paying ordinary symbols are: a smiling Genghis Khan dressed in blue and riding a brown-and-white Mongolian horse; a golden eagle with gray clouds in the background; a brown saddle; and a brown violin. The four low-paying symbols are: a green J; a yellow K fitted with a tiara; an orange Q fitted with a crown; and a diamond-encased orange A.
The Horsemen total bets are: $0.10 (minimum bet), $0.20, $0.50, $1.00, $2.00, $5.00, $10.00, $20.00, and $50.00 (maximum bet). The possible payouts when $50.00 is staked are as follows. Two, three, four, and five horse-riding Genghis Khans offer $5.00, $50.00, $200.00, and $1000.00.
Below are the Horsemen’s highly payouts for three, four, and five winning combinations. The traditional Mongolian yurt pays $50.00, $500.00, and $10000.00; the golden eagle has $25.00, $75.00, and $250.00; either the saddle, or the violin pays $15.00, $50.00, and $150.00; and J, K, Q, or A gives $10.00, $25.00, and $75.00.
Three Mongolian yurts, four Mongolian yurts, and five Mongolian yurts offer ten free games, 15 free games, and 50 free games. In the side game, the players can gamble: if an upcoming playing card is black or red by clicking the respective button at bottom right; or the rungs of the ladder game. Horsemen’s non-progressive jackpot is $10000.00.
The Horsemen software stands out for several characteristics. For instance; unlike other rival games, the software does not keep on timing out. Otherwise, Horsemen is typical of Bally Wuff’s software that can be personalized, such as the on/off autostart (5, 10, 25, 50, or 100 spins), (un)muting sounds, and activating space bar and fast spin. The jingling coins and violin sound effects are appealing. Aside from the glittering symbols, there is nothing fancy about its 3D graphics; however, the Mongolian steppe in the background authenticates Horsemen’s setting.
