Yggdrasil Gaming has announced that it will launch its latest slot game called ‘Champions of Rome’ before the end of this month.
Set in the world of gladiators and the Colosseum, players will be fighting in the arena to be the last one standing. Playable on various platforms, this game offers five reels and 20 pay lines.
Players will be welcomed to the game with the sight of the Roman Colosseum. Gladiators are the main theme of the game and all of the symbols reflect that. The lower paying symbols are the shields and the gargoyles.
The most valuable symbols though are the various gladiators: green, blue, and red. The red gladiator has the highest payout with five symbols on the payline. The interesting thing about these gladiators is that they are associated with weapons. Red is for swords, green is for maces, and blue is for tridents.
There is also the wild symbol which can also act as the other regular symbols. There is also the special Beast symbol, the deadliest gladiator around. It only appears during free spins. What is special about it is that if it is ever hit by a weapon, players get an additional free spin.
Fight To The Death
Champions of Rome really shines when players get the Free Spins bonus. There is also the Free Spins symbol. Players immediately get a bonus when they get two of these symbols, mainly additional wild symbols. When players get at least three Free Spin symbols, they will be able to get free spins and a cash bonus. Additionally, players can skip all that spinning and just buy into the bonus game for 50 times their original stake.
Playing the free spins is interesting. When it begins, players will be able to choose what mode they will play in. There is the training mode which gives players eight free spins. This is automatic and will keep spinning until the free spins are exhausted.
The Death Match Mode is more valuable. Players will have a choice of whether to get more free spins or higher multipliers. The highest multiplier is 4x but will give only five free spins. However, players will only keep their winnings if they win 22.5 coins of their original stake.
Overall, Champions of Rome is an excellent game that is both challenging and enjoyable. Players should try it out to feel pulse-pounding excitement. The game is expected to be available from 21 Feb.
