We hope you’ve got your parachute ready, soldier! You’ll be flying straight into enemy territory. As the name suggests, this video slot release is set during the Second World War. You’ll be high above the action in some iconic planes of World War 2.

Online slot game creator Red Tiger Gaming has made an impressive title that looks great, but not as great as they’re usually known for. That, coupled with the below industry-standard return to player rate, might mar the experience for most players which is a shame.

For those that will stick it out, there is a decent game to be found and we’ll outline that game within this review. We’ll detail all the bonuses, extras and symbols that you’ll come across should you decide to give the game a try despite everything.

Theme & Symbols

While military-themed video slot games certainly exist, they’re few and far between. Those that play them often look for more games along the same vein. This release will scratch the itch for those looking for an online title set during a war, but it might not bring enough to keep them entertained.

Soaring high above the clouds is the grid that you’ll be playing on. Centred in front of a warplane with its wing-mounted engines, the grid is fairly standard. There are no extra bells or whistles that would make it stand out. The WW2 aesthetic is on display which is nice but that’s about it.

Clouds rush past the grid and the propeller spins wildly keeping the aircraft in the sky. Persistent animations like this are always a joy to see since they bring so much life to the game. Symbols move around on winning combinations which is also a nice detail.

Sound effects are modelled after propeller engine sounds, when the reels spin it sounds like a plane engine spinning. While this too is a nice addition, it can get a little grating after a while. Luckily the option to mute is available.

In summary, while this game falls a little short of the massive standard Red Tiger Gaming has set for itself it is still a visually pleasing game. If you’re looking for an army-themed online slot release, this might be for you.

Symbols

Low-paying icons consist of playing card values that have been given a military make over. Expect to see 10, J, Q, K and A appearing quite often as you spin the reels.

Four different male pilots and one female pilot make up the high-paying images in this title. These are the ones you’ll want to see landing on the grid as you play the game, so keep an eye out.

Wilds are present in the title which will substitute for any other common icon in the game, allowing you to build winning combinations with ease or even extend existing ones. On top of that, depending on if a Wild formed a high-paying or low-paying win will determine which feature will activate. We’ll cover that in the ‘Features’ section.

A Scatter is present as well which will trigger a bonus gameplay feature should enough of them land during a single spin.

Online Betting Options & Features

1942: Sky Warrior is a title consisting of 5 – reels and 4 – rows. Bets can range from 0.10 – 100 coins per spin. Wins are determined by matching symbols landing on one of the 30 fixed pay lines. The theoretical RTP for the game sits at around 95.68% which, as we previously mentioned, is quite low. Variance is rated as medium to high.

Features

A maximum of two Wilds can land per spin. Should a Wild form part of a low-paying symbol win it will remove all other visible copies of that symbol and allow new icons to cascade into the newly created space. If part of a high-paying win, then those images will be upgraded for a bigger payout. Should both occur simultaneously, the effects will resolve in sequence starting with the icon upgrade.

3 Scatters landing during a single spin will reward 10 bonus spins. An additional 5 spins will be awarded each time 3 new Scatters land. During these spins, a Wild is guaranteed to land during each spin and should a Wild feature activate, it will remain active for the remainder of the feature.

Give this military aviation themed video slot game from Red Tiger a chance. If you’re looking for something far more low-key and festive from the same creator, have a look at Jingle Ways Megaways.
