Orcs Battle Slots

Orcs-BattleThough they existed in stories and movies long before that, orcs seem to have become truly well known outside the core of fantasy enthusiasts when the Lord of the Rings movie series came out. Pretty much everyone knows right now what an orc looks like and what terrible beasts they are. Microgaming decided to take advantage of their reputation, and Orcs Battle has been created. It’s a slot machine with a design that could’ve been better, but which has some pros to it and which fantasy enthusiasts will love anyway.

In Orcs Battle, the game offers 5 reels and a maximum of 50 active bet lines. The features give you free spins, scatters and wilds. A $2,500 jackpot is offered as well.

Features of Orcs Battle

The Orcs Battle features are the ones you would expect from any modern game, so you’re not going to be surprised by much in this case. You will find wild symbols, scatters, free spins and some extra features for them.

The image representing the wild is as simple as it gets. It’s just a logo with the letters of the word WILD on it, the symbol being used as a substitute only. It doesn’t create combos on its own, doesn’t offer its own payouts and doesn’t apply multipliers. It will still come in handy in more than one occasion though, being able to improve your profitability if you play long enough.


The scatter symbol has the logo of the game on it, and this symbol is useful because it doesn’t create combinations on paylines, instead relying on all the similar symbols present somewhere on the reels when it decides whether to give away its payouts. These prizes start at 2x the bet value when three symbols are in place, go to 10x for four and to 50x the bet for all five.

Free Games Feature

Should you get at least three scattered Game Logos on the reels, the cash prizes will also be accompanied by a round of free spins.


You would get 10 spins for free from it, during which the wilds which appear become sticky and stay in that position until you run out of free spins. The game doesn’t allow for the free spins to retrigger, something that is permitted in a lot of slot machines.


Betting options and jackpots

You can use multiple settings to modify the bets of the game. You can set the number of lines to a value lower than 50 if you want to, you can modify how many coins each line gets (1 to 5) and you can change the denomination of the coins as well (the range is $0.01 to $0.50). In the end, the maximum value will be $2.50 for the line bet, with $125 for the total bet.

The rewards of the game will reach values of $6,250 for the prizes that the scatter gives you, or $2,500 for the ones from the regular symbols.

Design and symbols

The slot machine shows you mostly what you would expect from a title with an orc centered theme. There are orc warriors on the reels, bloody axes, but there are also some very ugly poker cards, almost unbearably so. The look is not that of a modern game, more like something that was cool about a decade ago. Still, for a fantasy fan, it’s not too bad looking.


Symbols: WILD Logo (wild), Game Logo (50x bet, scatter), Bloody Double Axe (1,000x), Wooden Club (750x), Orc with club (500x), Orc with maces (500x), Ace (250x), King (150x), Queen (150x), Jack (100x), Ten (75x) and Nine (50x).


Is It Worth Playing?

The fantasy angle can prove interesting enough, plus you will get a lot of paylines, but the drawback is the relatively low payouts, which at only 1,000x are almost insulting.

This Orcs Battle slot is offered by all online casinos with Microgaming software, playable either in practice or in real money mode.
