Leonidas King of the Spartans Slot Game
You can land some big wins on this Incredible Technologies slot – which you might not realize is a contradiction when it comes to the Sparta theme. The reason is that Sparta was an empire that did not use money at all, and in fact scorned it in favor of an austere and tough warrior lifestyle! I am sure you will not mind this historical anomaly if you hit the 40,000-coin win available from a single minimum bet spin!
There are plenty of features included in this slot, which can be found both in live casinos and played online. The main one is the battle sequence during the free spins bonus round. This can add a serious number of sticky wilds to the reels, and result in some very big wins. Expect shouting, dramatic sound effects and big wins from this ITS slot.

How to Win on Leonidas: King of the Spartans.
Even during regular play, you’ll have the opportunity to win group Leonidas wins. The head shot of the king, complete with golden helmet, is the single biggest paying symbol. This is worth 250 coins for 5 of a kind across any of the 40 win-lines, with 70 coins for 4, 30 for 3 and 2 coins for only 2 from the left hand side. Symbols are stacked on the reels, making it possible to get some big coverage and multiple winning combinations in the same spin.
Two more Spartan warriors are the next best paying symbols at 150 and 100 coins for 2 respectively. Again these pay down to 2 from the left (all other symbols will need 3+). A golden helmet, sword and playing card symbols ace down to nine make up the smaller wins.
There is a wild symbol, which is a simple purple and gold design saying ‘wild’, that appears on reels 2 through to 5. This substitutes for all of the regular symbols covered above, though not the lady bonus symbol.
On Reel Features
During regular game play, there are two features which appear that can result in some bigger wins. The first of these is the ‘Group Leonidas Win’. This kicks in when you get stacked Leonidas symbols on reels 1 and 2. The symbols draw their shields, and more of these symbols then appear on reels 3, 4 and 5. This can help you trigger a lot of wins at the same time.
There is also a ‘Random Leonidas Win’ feature, where 6+ of these symbols can randomly drop onto the reels. This has the maximum effect when there are already a lot of Leonidas symbols (or wilds) on the reels.
Leonidas: King of the Spartans Free Spins Bonus Games
Landing 2 of the lady in white symbols on reels 3 and 5 starts off the bonus feature. This is a free spins game, though there is a random element with one of 6 extras selected before the game begins.
The random element involves 6 symbols which scroll across the screen, you press and the game will stop on one of them. There are 3 symbols which add free spins (5, 4 or 3), one which adds an entirely wild reel, one which adds a sticky 2x wild and the last one pays 5x your current bet.
Once the spins begin the battle aspect will increase the number of wilds as you go along. Each spin that contains Spartan warriors will see them put up their shields after the spin as a rain of arrows comes from somewhere in front of the screen. This kills a lot of warriors, those that survive (you’ll see the arrow in their shield), will become sticky wilds for the remainder of the game. It is possible to get some good coverage in wilds during the later spins – which can result in some big wins. If you get lucky and combine the wilds with the stacked Leonidas symbols, that maximum win becomes possible.

Design and Setup
Unusually the reels for this game appear to slope away from you, with the bottom of the reels being wider than the top. The background is a very effective craggy mountain scene with orange clouds floating by at the top of the screen. The symbols are detailed and are enclosed in a golden frame on the reels.
It is the animations which really make this slot stand out. The primary one is Leonidas himself, who appears huge in front of the reels and shouts things like ‘Victory’ when you hit big wins. There are plenty of smaller animations which are also effective – for example the arrows and shields of the battle round. Stirring music plays, with a deliberate tough atmosphere created by the designers.
This is a 40-line video slot, which you can play in increments of 40c through to $2 max. You’ll find an auto-spin which lets you select up to 100 games at a time.
This is a nicely designed slot which certainly holds its own against the rival 300 Shields game from NextGen. Unlike many slots of this type, there are some on reel features in addition to the usual wilds which keep you engaged while waiting for the main bonus to kick in. The battle free spins are certainly the highlight of the game. If your warriors do well, this can end up being a very profitable bonus game.
