Roman Chariots Slot Machine
Take one glance at the title of the slot and you could be forgiven for thinking that this theme has been done many times before, however it’s a fact that this slot is very different from any of the other Rome themed slots. This is due to the fact that there are four sets of reels as opposed to one in this game – one main set with an additional three smaller sets above.
Symbols at this slot include many aspects of Rome, including an Emperor, a gladiator helmet, golden body armour and a horse. The symbols are well drawn and look very crisp on the salmon coloured reels. The backdrop to the slot is a dark tapestry, giving the slot a highly authentic and professional feel. This is added to by the soundtrack where you can imagine you’re engaged in a mighty battle, featuring people roaring and horses whinnying.
This is a 5 reel slot with 20 win lines – this number of lines set in stone. As well as the 20 win lines, you’ll also pay an extra 20 credits for the feature of the game, making a total of 40 credits. You’ll select the bet multiplier for your total stake for each spin. You’ll need at least three of every symbol apart from the horse from left to right on a win line to achieve a win at this slot. The horse is the top paying symbol, giving you 400 coins when landing 5 in a row, winning you more than double any other symbol – the Emperor being the second most profitable at 150 coins.
The bonus symbol at the slot is the chariot wheel which only appears on reels 1 and 5 – should it appear on both you’ll enter the free spins round. This round gives you eight spins as well as the award of two times your total bet. Ordinarily, a free spins feature might be the main feature of a slot, but it’s certainly not the case here.
Roman Chariots Slot Feature
This wild symbol at the slot is a horse and chariot which is stacked. This will substitute for any other symbol in the game apart from the bonus symbol. This wild symbol plays a large part in the feature of the game.
As stated earlier, there are an additional three mini reels above the main slot. Each of these mini reels starts out inactive, but will become active when a stacked wild fills reels 2, 3 or 4 (activating mini slot 1, 2 and 3). Each additional stacked wild will add a multiplier to any active mini reel. These multipliers will continue to rise as the stacked wilds keep appearing. At any point, a bugle will appear on the fifth reel. If the bugle is backed by green and points to the right, each of the active mini reels will spin and you’ll win based upon the standard pay table (plus added multipliers if applicable). There is one added advantage when playing these mini reels – each spin will see one reel being completely wild. However, should the bugle be backed by red and points to the left, all of the mini reels will be reset and you’ll have to start building them up again.
This feature is a highly original one and having built up the multipliers you’ll certainly not want to leave. Just try and avoid the red bugle!
Roman Chariots Conclusion
This slot by WMS is one that you’ll certainly enjoy at a variety of gaming sites. The sound and visuals of the slot complement the theme perfectly, the slot certainly looking very modern. The free spins feature is somewhat standard, but it’s the multi reels feature that really stands out. This feature really gets you involved when playing and actually adds a tactical element to the game – this being that you should only consider leaving when the mini reels have been wiped. This is a job well done by WMS and is a highly recommended slot.
