Champions of Rome Slot Free Play
A relatively young developer, though it’s been more than half a decade since they were founded, Yggdrasil Gaming is responsible for a fair amount of slot machines with impressive graphics, that they’ve released over the years.
I’ve come to expect great designs from their games, and I’m almost never disappointed. Champions of Rome is a great example of this. They don’t generally offer high volatility slots, so it looks like they cater to the amateur side of the market for the most part, but at least they offer good RTP, usually above 96%.
How To Play It
The smallest amount that can be wagered on a round is $0.10, but that’s enough to use $0.005 on each of the 20 lines that are used. The slot allows for considerably higher wagers as well though, the upper limit being set to $100, or $5 per line.
As an extra option, Champions of Rome allows you to buy your way into its bonus feature, which has the best potential. You need to pay 50x the stake, in order to buy access to the free spins directly. If you want to use the maximum bet value for the free spins, of $100, then the buy in price is $5,000.
Quite an interesting mix of features has been designed for this slot, and it’s through them that you can get the best rewards.
The Gladiator feature is one of them, and it requires two Free Spin icons to land at the same time. The variants which you’re offered here include Swords (1×2 and 2×1 wild symbols added), Mace (adds 2×2 wilds) and Trident (gives you 4 random wilds).
Obviously, The Gladiator is easy to trigger and profitable, but the Free Spins scatters have another purpose ultimately. You’re interested in getting 3 or more of these symbols, so that you can trigger free spins and rewards of up to 12,000 coins (600x the stake).
Once the free spins are triggered, you will have another choice to make, between Training and Deathmatch mode. It’s a risk/reward kind of thing, as Training mode allows you to play things safe and keep all the wins that you get in it.
Deathmatch mode is a little bit more interesting, as you need to win a minimum of 450 coins, so that you can keep your prizes. On the plus side, this mode has multipliers added to the wins, with three options listed: 7 spins and 2x multipliers, 6 spins with 3x multipliers, or 5 free spins with 4x multipliers.
You do receive a consolation prize at the end of Deathmatch, if you don’t get the minimum required to keep your winnings. It’s worth between 40 and 200 coins, or alternatively you can get 5 free spins in Training mode.
A major part of the free spins will consist of the Battle between the Beast and the Gladiators. The former lands on the middle three reels, while one gladiator will replace all high paying symbols. Wilds are added to the reels each round, and when the Beast gets hit, you receive one extra free spin.
With prizes of up to 1,200x possible in the game’s regular rounds, and with 4x multipliers available as well, the game’s potential seems to reach a maximum of $480,000.
Champions of Rome is a game that’s easy to enjoy, has excellent potential and cool graphics, so it’s got plenty of things going for it.
