Free Pompeii Slots

Pompeii was an ancient Roman town in the Italian region of Campania, situated close to Naples. The town was thought to have a population of around 11,000 people until it was mostly destroyed by the eruption Mount Vesuvius in 79AD. The town was lost for nearly 1,500 years until it’s rediscovery in more modern times, Pompeii becoming a popular tourist attraction in the last 250 years.

The legend of Pompeii has been resurrected at this slot by Aristocrat gaming. On the reels you’ll find many symbols relating to the town and the Roman people that inhabited it – these including golden coins, chariots, gladiator helmets and swords and shields. The highlight of the slot is a free spins round where you could potentially find a 15x multiplier in place for a number of the spins.

Pompeii’s darkest hour is shown as the background image of the game, with Mount Vesuvius beginning to erupt and the golden pillars and dwellings on the verge of being no more. Coins also scatter the air, which points to both the turmoil surrounding Pompeii and your potential winnings when playing. The reels themselves have a mosaic background, with thousands of tiny tiles giving an overall green colour to the game. The symbols on the reels are somewhat basic, not quite reaching the standard of many modern slots, with a distinct lack of animation apart from the volcano erupting. The accompanying sound to the slot is somewhat weak too, a simple clicking of the reels and the odd exclamation not particularly doing justice to the tragic story of the city.

  • Playing the Pompeii Slot

    You’ll find the same five reels as found at many online slots, but this particular slot does differ in the use of the ‘Reel Power’ feature. This feature gives the players 243 ways to win, as opposed to the more standard win lines found at many other games. You’ll still win by landing symbols consecutively from left to right, but if a symbol appears anywhere on each of the reels, you’ll be guaranteed a win. These 243 ways to win come at the cost of 25 credits, so you’ll simply choose your coin amount (from 1c and up) and multiply this by 25.

    Keep your eyes peeled for the ornate red and gold symbol which is the highest paying at 2,500 coins for five in a row, this closely followed by the centurion’s helmet at 2,000 coins. These are joined by chariot and the sword/shield symbols at 1000 coins, with the playing card symbols from 9 to Ace completing the symbols.

    The volcano is the wild symbol at the slot, somewhat unusually only appearing on the second and fourth reels of the game. This will substitute for any symbol at the game apart from the ‘golden coin’ feature symbol. This feature symbol will activate the free games round if appearing three or more times in a row, as opposed to anywhere on the slot like the majority of scatter symbols elsewhere.

    Bonus Game for Pompeii

    Should you land the golden coin symbol the minimum three times to activate the feature, you’ll have 10 free games, but each additional symbol will give an added five spins. During the free spins, the wild symbol takes on much greater importance. Any wins using the wild on reel two will see a 3x multiplier applied to your win. Wins using the wild on reel four are even better with a 5x multiplier attached. However, the biggest multiplier of all is saved for when you use the wild on both of the reels, this seeing a 15x multiplier in play.

    Overall, this slot is on the simple side, and a little retro – focusing on the famous Aristocrat game-play. The demise of Pompeii and the subsequent discovery centuries later makes for a grand story. The look of the slot is very basic, as is the sound and there are no features away from the reels themselves. Use of the ‘Reel Power’ and the original use of the wilds during the free spins is a nice touch. If you enjoy the solid Aristocrat slots range, then this game provides a distinctive theme to that familiar setup – take it for a spin soon1


    Pompeii is thought to have been founded in the 6th century BC and would eventually become a Roman colony some 500 years later after an unsuccessful rebellion against the Roman Republic. Pompeii was a coastal city, featuring its own port and having a complex water system in use for its 11,000 inhabitants. The eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79AD saw the end of Pompeii, the city eventually covered in 13 to 20 feet of Ash. Pompeii was initially rediscovered in 1599, although a much broader rediscovery took place in 1748. The city was amazingly well preserved as the ash that covered the city allowed no air or moisture in. During the excavation of the city, gaps in the ash were found and it was discovered that these would have contained the human remains – plaster being used to fill the gaps and recreate the human forms of Mount Vesuvius’s victims.

    The story of Pompeii made it to the big screen in 2014, the phrase ‘No warning, no escape’ on the poster of the film, detailing the impact of the eruption on the city. The movie has a star studded cast, including Kiefer Sutherland, Kit Harrington and Carrie-Anne Moss, although the film didn’t fare too well as the critical response was generally unfavourable.
