5 Clans slot REVIEW
5 Clans ReviewReflex Gaming is still in a phase where they’re trying out different things, and basically looking for their voice. This is evident if you take a look at the mixed selection of slots they have released so far, and 5 Clans - The Final Battle is also a somewhat strange mix of warriors and gemstones.
The visuals presentation is semi-realistic, and you get a dramatic soundtrack that adds to the epic vibe. The 5 clans come with a unique coat of arms shield per clan, and these trigger 3 different modifier respin features, a random multiplier up to x50 applied at random times and the bonus round that gives you more of the same. The 27,471x potential is solid, but keep in mind that it’s hard-capped at £27,471.

5 Clans Slot Features
The regular wild steps in for all pay symbols to help you complete winning combinations. It does not hold any value of its own, but the 5 premium warrior symbols pay between 6 and 75 x your stake for 5 of a kind. In addition, you can land 5 different bonus shield symbols, and these trigger different modifiers and features.
The 3 shields with animal emblems trigger a modifier respins feature. You only need 1 of these shields in view anywhere to trigger the feature, and you get new respins as long as you keep landing more of the modifier symbol. Only blanks or shields land as long as the streak respins style feature plays out, and then the modifier is applied as regular symbols fill the remaining positions. The 3 modifier shields work as follows:
Lion shield - turns into a fully stacked Super Wild, and you can get up to 4 super wilds from the streak respin style feature that follows.
Wolf shield - turns into a regular wild, and you get more wilds as the respins feature plays out.
Dragon shield - also turns into a wild, and this modifier can award up to 15 wilds via the respins that follow. That means a full screen of wilds is possible.
The blue shield with a star/snowflake icon applies a multiplier of x3, x5, x10, x20 or x50 to random wins. It will typically activate on smaller wins most of the time, at least in our experience. The orange flame shield can land on reel 5 only, and 1 is enough to trigger the bonus round.
You get 9 free spins as the Bonus Round starts, and you can expect more frequent bonus shields during the feature. All the free respins you get will typically prolong the bonus round a great deal, and non-UK players can purchase the bonus round directly for 100x the total stake.
The 200 Spins 5 Clans Slot Experience
You get to see a base game wild respin feature that plays out right before we purchase the bonus round. This happens at 1:23 into the 4-minute highlights video, and you get to see plenty of modifier respins. We are not gonna reveal how much we won in total, but you can see it all for yourself by hitting the play button below.
We had to google 5 Clans + “tv show” and “movie” just to see if this was some kind of branded effort, as the semi-realistic visuals gave us that impression. We couldn’t find anything however, but you do get some action from each of the clans in the form of modifiers and features. These will trigger once in a while to spice up the base game, and the bonus round came with plenty of modifier action in our experience.
The features are not exactly revolutionary however, but they can be effective at times. Combining fierce-looking warriors with shiny, plastic-looking royal gems is perhaps not the most congruent mix, and overall the Reflex Gaming visual style is a bit all over the place. The game looks like it stumbled out of a time machine, and we hardly think this will be the big break for a developer that’s still looking for their voice.
