The combination of the violence and sport of Ancient Rome is the setting for this online slot machine from Yggdrasil Gaming; it’s called Champions of Rome and it follows a group of gladiators as they battle they way to glory, handing out free spins and multiplier values on the way.
Champions of Rome is a five reel slot with three rows and twenty fixed paylines; those reels spin against the backdrop of a coliseum slowly filling up with spectators as the Mediterranean sun sets overhead.
Three fearsome opponents and three animal statues represent the higher value symbols while coins in gold, silver, bronze and an even cheaper metal make up the lower values.
The golden laurel is wild and it will substitute for all other symbols to help form winning combos except for the Beast and Free Spins icons.
Trigger this by landing exactly two of the Free Spins symbols anywhere in view and one of the following wild features will be yours:
- Swords – wilds of 1×2 and 2×1 are flung at the reels.
- Mace – wilds of 2×2 are chucked at the reels.
- Trident – four single wilds are thrown at the reels.
This is triggered by landing at least three of the Free Spins symbols anywhere in view and the first thing to do is to select between Training Mode and Deathmatch Mode; Training Mode awards eight free spins and you get to keep all the winnings, Deathmatch Mode offers the chance to go for a bigger prize of 450 coins but you’ll lose your winning if you miss that target.
If you choose Deathmatch you’ll get to choose from the following free spins options:
Failing to meet the target will award a consolation prize of up to 200 coins or five Training Mode free spins. During both modes one of the three gladiators will be selected to replace all high value symbols on the reels and on each spin his wild feature (Swords, Mace or Trident) will activate, adding a load of wilds in view. If a wild lands on top of the beast you’ll get an extra spin.
If you’re especially keen to play the Free Spins then for the bargain price of 1000 coins you can click the ‘Buy Bonus’ button on the left and get straight into it.
Champions of Rome offers something more than just a reel spinning experience with its grand setting and promise of blood-letting in return for cash prizes; there’s some genuine jeopardy in Deathmatch Mode and a quick way into the feature should you so desire.
