It is the slots’ unique pay table that instantly catches the players’ attention. The before mentioned 10 reel, 1000 ways to win system is a first in the world of pokies, and does, initially make the screen appear a little cluttered.
Once the player gets used to the format however the game becomes quick, exiting and easy on the eye. Symbols generally consist of soldiers and swords, whilst the game does an excellent job of making the player feel like they are trapped in an intense coliseum battle. The soundtrack however, is almost nonexistent throughout, and it can’t be helped felt that some battle cries or war noises could have added to the atmosphere.
The slots’ main strength is its gameplay however. Standard options for stake, autoplay and volume control are available, but the normality ends as soon as the player clicks spin. With so many pay lines the pokie is naturally low variance, with wins extremely frequent. All wilds are stacked and can transfer from reel to reel creating fantastic winning combinations. The best paying symbols come in the form of Spartacus himself, and he also acts primarily as a stacked wild with his symbols covering large portions of the pay table.
As if this wasn’t enough for players there is also a Coliseum Bonus which is triggered by three or more coliseum symbols being on the screen at one time. This starts anything from 8 to 20 free spins, with increased wilds and payout awarded during them.
