Victorious Slot from NetEnt
Victorious takes you back to the days of the Roman Empire – featuring the Roman warriors in various battle poses on the reels. One symbol shows a single Roman soldier in golden armor with helmet in hand, another shows a soldier in battle, his sword raised in the air, while you’ll also see a group of soldiers marching to war.
A golden eagle, a laurel wreath and a roman centurion are also found on the reels. This Net Entertainment slot uses the ‘all-ways’ winning system – giving you plenty of opportunities to hit winning combinations. The free slot game bonus round is the highlight, where a 3x multiplier is added to all of your wins.
How to Win on Victorious
This NetEnt designed slot uses the all-ways winning system, offering 243 winning combinations from the left instead of specified win-lines. All runs of 3+ consecutive reels to from the left showing the same symbol trigger a win. The big advantage is that you can’t miss a win-line, if you have a symbol on each of the 5 reels – that is a 5-of-a-kind win regardless of what positions the symbols are in.
The Roman centurion is the highest paying symbol, worth 1,500 coins for the maximum 5 in a row. The posing Roman soldier, in what might be considered to a historical ‘selfie’, is worth 1,000 coins, while the Roman warrior with sword raised and the marching soldiers pay 500 and 400 coins respectively. These standard symbols are joined by the playing cards 9, 10, J, Q, K and A. Each of these is designed in a classic gold style and paying between 200 and 80 coins as a top prize.
The golden eagle is the wild and will substitute for any other symbol apart from the free games one. Wilds can be more important than usual in an all ways slot as they can enable a lot of simultaneous wins.
Victorious Free Spins Feature
The bonus symbol is the laurel wreath and has two bonuses associated with it. Firstly, land three or more and you’ll win an immediate payout. Three symbols give you a win of 5x your total stake, four symbols pay 20x your stake, while the maximum five pays an appealing 50x your stake.
However three or more scatters also lands you entry into the free spins feature. The minimum three scatters sees you awarded with 15 free spins, while each additional scatter will add a further 5 free spins (up to a maximum of 25).
The free spins play in exactly the same way as the base game, apart from one big difference. Every time you win, the win amount will be multiplied by 3 – giving you the potential for some big wins. With the multiplier in place, the free spins would be the perfect time to land those 5 centurions in a row, and a payout of 4,500 coins. As a further added bonus, the free spins can be re-triggered, the number of spins won is simply added to your existing total.
Marching to War Design
The backdrop to the reels shows a large army of Roman soldiers marching to war. Much of the reels are filled are filled by the golden playing card symbols, with a marble background, giving the slot a classic feel. The theme relevant symbols are all hand drawn and appear as they might in an animated film, each of these adding a nice splash of color. This slot might have been improved by further animation than the simple spinning of the wilds, but the accompanying imposing soundtrack is a good one, adding to the atmosphere of war.
The all-ways system actually ensures that you’ll have 243 ways to win per spin, although the cost of each of these spins is only 25 credits. To set the total stake you’ll choose both the bet level (between 1 and 10) and the coin value (between 1c and 50c). Other options include a mute button to toggle the sound on and off and an auto play option where you can set the slot to spin for between 10 and 1,000 spins.
This is a simple game by the standards of Net Entertainment – lacking some of the variety and originality found in many of their titles. Having said that, this is a solid enough slot with colorful visuals and simple but engaging game-play. Using the all-ways system combined with wilds and 3x multipliers (during the free spins bonus round), is a recipe for some potentially big wins.
