Mystery Symbols

During gameplay, Mystery symbols can land randomly on reels 2, 3, and 4 in both the base game and Free Spins round. Landing 2 or more Mystery symbols on the same reel will trigger an expansion, where the number of ways to win will open up, to a maximum of 39,375 in total.

Mystery symbols will always activate a random Multiplier value between x2 and x5 each time they expand.

Palace of Mercury Feature

The Palace of Mercury feature can trigger only in the base game. When 3 of the same symbols land on reel 1, reels 2, 3, 4, and 5 will automatically transform all symbols into 1×3-sized stacks of High-paying symbols. If no wins occur on the first spin, 1 Respin will be granted.

Terracotta Army Free Spins

Landing 3, 4, or 5 Scatters across the reels in the base game triggers the Free Spins round. The number of Free Spins awarded depends on the number of triggering Scatters, as follows.

  • 3 Scatters – Awards between 4 and 7 Free Spins and up to 3 Sticky Mystery symbols. 
  • 4 Scatters – Awards between 4 and 8 Free Spins and up to 4 Sticky Mystery symbols. 
  • 5 Scatters – Awards between 4 and 9 Free Spins and up to 5 Sticky Mystery symbols. 

Sticky Mystery Symbols

During Free Spins, each Scatter symbol that lands in view will reward 1 Sticky Mystery symbol on reels 2, 3, and 4. All Sticky Mystery symbols will remain in their fixed position for the duration of Free Spins.

Sticky Mystery symbols will start along the bottom rows of reels 2, 3, and 4, and will continue upwards upwards until every position is filled.

Symbol Removal

Also during Free Spins, Scatter symbols that land will progress the Collector Meter. For every 3 Scatters collected, a Low-paying symbol will be removed for the remainder of Free Spins, up to a maximum of 3.

Terracotta Army: Our Verdict

Bravo Blue Guru Games, bravo. It seems that Terracotta Army is more than just a pretty face after all! Blue Guru Games have always managed to wow us with their creative skills in design and graphics, but have always fallen short when it came to gameplay.

Terracotta Army puts an end to those days, with exciting features, that there are plenty of, and a gripping Free Spins round that offers a juicy amount of potential.

Both the base game and Free Spins round offer something entirely different in terms of features. The base game gets the momentum going with its Mystery symbols and Palace of Mercury feature, and the Free Spins round tops us off with Sticky Mystery symbols and a nifty Symbol Removal feature.

If you’re eager to see the Free Spins round in action and happen to be outside the UK, you will be able to buy your way in via a Bonus Buy option, and it won’t break the bank either.

A big round of applause to Blue Guru Games for coming through with not only stunning visuals and sound effects but the full package!
