In bricks and mortar casinos, Pompeii is well known as one of the more popular slots out there; that means it’s to everyone’s benefit that it’s also available to play from the comfort of your own home, train, bus or wherever you like to play your slots. This online slot from Aristocrat has an obvious theme – the ancient city of Pompeii and the volcano disaster which destroyed it.
Pompeii features 243 ways to win spread out over five reels and in fact this game is about Pompeii before the volcano hit; the city is still standing but we can see the magma-filled mountain in the distance and all the citizens of this metropolis are doomed to exist in a permanent state of terror at the impending doom.
The symbols are generally Roman-themed and include a chariot, a gold coin, a sword and shield, a helmet, an ornate shield and the volcano itself. The volcano is wild and the gold coin is the scatter symbol which activates the bonus feature.
This what Aristocrat calls this particular 243 payline structure; in fact there are no set paylines – all you need to do is get matching symbols in adjacent reels starting from the left hand side.
The volcano is the wild symbol and it only appears on reels two and four; if the wild on reel two contributes to a winning combo your win will be trebled, if it’s on reel four it will be multiplied by 5. If the combo includes both wilds the multiplier is an impressive 15x.
- Three gold coins – 10 free spins
- Four gold coins – 15 free spins
- Five gold coins – 20 free spins
It’s also possible to re-trigger the spins while playing this feature.
