There have been many armies over the years, good, bad and indifferent. But the concept of a Terracotta Army might strike you as particularly unusual – terracotta being, well, pottery. Play Terracotta Army now
Er, if you didn’t come here for a history lesson, let’s quickly add that you can land a maximum win of 10,000x on a single spin of the slot we’re here to discuss, which is pretty good, no?
Terracotta Army with Mystery Symbols
Anyway, when Qin Shi Huang, first emperor of China, died around 2,200 years back, he was buried in a vast mausoleum alongside a mindboggling army of life-sized terracotta models, stationed alongside Qin to protect him on his journey into the afterlife.
It’s a well-stocked army too, with chariots, horses, and more than 8,000 soldiers accompanying Qin on the next stage of his journey. Humans eh, what an insane bunch we are.
Anyhow, the Terracotta Army have inspired Relax Gaming and Blue Guru Games to put together a slot based on this fantastical Asian army. And more power to them, at least someone out there’s thinking outside the box for a change. “Ooh, should we do another slot about fishing, haven’t had one of those in a while!” Eeesh.
So, we’re definitely on board with the unusual theme. How about the game itself? Well, this high volatility, five reel, three row release has a really cool art style, great lighting effects, stylish visuals – it’s altogether a class act. Reader, we’re barmy for this Army.
And features wise, there’s plenty to help you land a payout, too. The Palace of Mercury feature can trigger in the base game, for instance.
When three identical high paying symbols land on the first reel, reels 2-5 will react, with all symbols transformed into 1×3 stacks of the symbol on the first reel.

Otherwise, the Mystery Symbol can land on the three central reels; if two or more of these symbols land on the same reel, they’ll expand to create additional winning ways.
Mystery Symbols also come with a multiplier attached, which can be as much as 5x; this multiplier is applied to the win.
Elsewhere, three or more Scatter symbols trigger the Free Game bonus. The more Scatters, the more Free Spins you may receive; the amount varies from between 4-7 with three Scatters, 4-8 with four, and 4-9 with five Scatters. You’ll also be awarded a random number of Sticky Mystery symbols.
And any Scatter that lands during the Free Games will also award a Sticky Mystery symbol. As the name implies, these symbols remain in place for the remainder of the Free Games.
What’s more, any scatter that lands during the Free Games will be added to the Collection Meter. For every three scatters collected, a low paying symbol will be removed for the remaining Free Games.
In summary then, this slot is easy on the eye, fun to play, packs its fair share of interesting features and mechanics, and even has an original theme. What’s not to like? This is one Army that’s definitely worth volunteering for…
