Glory of Rome tries to show off the beauty and elegance of Ancient Rome. The reels of this Microgaming slot machine are filled with the images of the characters that we associate with that era. You have Caesar in one of the big roles, along with gladiators, lions and even noble women. It’s a very elegant design, despite the use of poker cards, and it’s a pleasure to look at it. The features are the usual ones, but at least they’re all here, including the substitute, the scatter, the feature with free spins and the multipliers. You get only 20 lines with the 5 reels, while payouts can reach $100,000.
Betting and Prizes
Glory of Rome can be extremely cheap, as you can get it going with just $0.01 for each active line you want to use. However, you can make it expensive as well, by increasing the number of coins up to 20 per line and by taking the denomination up to $0.50. You can spend $10 for each line, or as much as $200 for all of them.
A 5,000x top jackpot is announced, which would normally mean a $50,000 cash prize. There are multipliers in the free spins feature, which can double the jackpot, taking it to $100,000.
Glory of Rome Slot Features
Caesar himself is present on the most important icon of Glory of Rome. You use this symbol as the substitute, so if you have it in the position where you need it, it will take whatever role it has to, in order to bring you a new win. As is often the case, it can also be a trigger for a better payout if it manages to form a combo just with its own symbols, in that case awarding up to 5,000x.
The Gladiator, a scattered symbol which gives away payouts by being in two or more positions, doesn’t need to be on a certain line. It’s enough if you just have its symbols present in enough locations. You get paid as much as 100x the bet when it is in up to five spots.
With 3 or more Gladiators in place, you get access to the bonus game as well. You start off with 8 free spins, and then you choose 4 of the 9 shields shown, to get either cash prizes or an extra 8 free games from each one. The cash prize is at 10x the bet. Next, the free spins begin, with prizes doubled for any combination obtained.
Theme & Design
It’s an elegant design, one which uses symbols that are mostly related to Ancient Rome and its empire. Characters like Caesar are present, as are gladiators, lions, helmets, horse chariots and a beautiful woman. The poker cards include the usual letters, but the 10 and the 9 numbers were replaced with roman numerals, meaning X and IX.
Even though there are plenty of legends themed slots out there, I’d recommend this one based on its features and on the quality of the design.
