The mention of football makes it clear we can expect that theme to come into play in this game. However, few people would call the players gladiators. The reason for that word as part of the title becomes clear when you begin to play it. Ancient Rome is not the setting you’d expect for a footballing slot, but that’s what we have here. Does it work?
Five reels present themselves when you begin to play the game. Those allow room for 25 lines to be included in the slot.
Up to four coins can be played on each line of this game. Each one can be worth from just a cent apiece to 50 cents.
Before the game begins, you will see four footballers. Choose just one, and that player will be your wild for the duration of play.
There is a special icon included in this game. This is the Arena bonus symbol. This must appear on the second and fourth reels simultaneously to trigger the bonus choice. Yes, there are two options for you here.
The first is the Battle Bonus. You’ll get a choice of several monsters, each posing a different challenge for you to try and surpass. Win from 2x your triggering bet to 4x your triggering bet if you manage to slay whichever monster you choose.
The second bonus option is the Chariot Race Bonus. This sounds like fun! You will secure seven, 10, or 15 free games depending on the option you choose. Each one poses a different multiplier, set at 5x, 3x, or 2x. So, the more spins you choose, the lower the multiplier will be.
The options given in each bonus mean you get the chance to play them differently if you trigger them again. We like those options a lot.
Footballing and ancient Rome… it doesn’t seem like a winning combination, does it? It certainly doesn’t feel like an obvious one. However, it works in this game. Sometimes you need to take an unusual tack to create a slot game everyone will remember. We think this one has enough to intrigue even those who aren’t keen on football. Try it today and see if you like it too.
