Legends of Troy Slots Game
The Trojan War was fought between 1260 and 1180 BC and was finally won by the Greeks using the ‘Trojan Horse’. After a ten year siege, the Greek army constructed the large wooden horse and hid a number of their soldiers inside. As the Greeks had seemingly left the horse and sailed away, the Trojans unwittingly pulled the horse inside the walls of Troy as a victory trophy, only for the soldiers to escape and open the gates for the rest of the army, who would destroy the city of Troy and therefore win the war. This High 5 Games designed slot is based upon the famed strategy and features the wooden horse alongside three handsome members of the army and a beautiful blonde maiden, in a game where you’ll find both scatter bucks and a free spins bonus round.
Legends of Troy Gameplay
The first aspect of Legends of Troy that will stand out is the fact that there are six reels, each of these four high, which gives the slot a very different look to the usual. This makes for slightly smaller symbols, although it’s clear much effort has gone into the design of the game, as each of these symbols is very distinctive, all of the characters very attractive, meaning the game will appeal to both sexes. The background to the reels is blue in color featuring a tapestry depicting a battle scene, while the game is set against the backdrop of a Greek temple. The impressive look is only added to by the accompanying sound – a movie-like track which adds drama to each and every spin.
The standout feature of the slot is the ‘scatter bucks’ option, which is an optional extra. You’ll find 50 pay lines at the slot, but for an additional 50 credits you’ll have the feature in operation. This sees the wild symbol, represented by a bronze shield, have immediate payouts attached on occasions. These payouts have a minimum amount of 25 credits on every reel, but the maximum amount increases as you move from left to right across the reels, the largest payout on reels five and six being a huge 10,000 coins. Of course, being a wild symbol, it’s a win-win situation as this will also substitute for any other symbol on the reels to give you additional wins. There is more good news too, as these wilds are stacked at many spins – the perfect spins seeing stacked wilds, each with a large scatter bucks payout attached.
Of course, it’s not just the scatter bucks that will pay out, as you’ll win in the usual way when landing three or more symbols in a row from left to right on a pay line. The wild comes up trumps again as the top paying symbol at 2,500 coins for the maximum six in a row, while the blonde maiden and the soldier with the blue collar pay 1,500 coins, 750 coins more than his fellow army men. The reels are completed by Greek letters such as Alpha and Omega, which is a nice change from the playing card symbols.
With the Scatter Bucks feature on (which is highly recommended, as this is what really makes the game) each spin will cost 100 credits, but you do have the option of playing the 50 lines alone, as well as just 25, 10 or even just a single line. The cost per credit ranges from just 1c all the way through to $10. Handy options at the game include the auto play, where you can sit back and watch the drama unfold for 5, 10, 15, 20 or 25 spins, while a replay option allows you to relive a winning spin again and again.
Legends of Troy Free Spins Feature
The free spins bonus round is activated when you land three or four of the Trojan horse scatter symbols anywhere on reels 2, 3, 4 or 5. Three scatters sees you awarded 7 free spins, while the maximum four sees 15 free spins coming your way. The free spins are played on different, more profitable reels, while the scatter bucks payouts are also larger. Landing the scatters again during the feature will see you win 7 or 15 additional spins, up to a maximum of 105 free games.
Legends of Troy Conclusion
Legends of Troy is a slot which will appeal to those of you who enjoy a unique element or two in your slot gaming. The oversized reels and the scatter bucks provide this, each and every spin offering the opportunity of a big win, the excitement remaining even if the first five reels are not fruitful, as that big payout could pop up in reel six. Take the scatter bucks out and the slot is a good one, but with the added feature, this is a must play.
