They say that Rome wasn’t built in a day, but with Glorious Rome you’ll have the chance to give it a try. Pragmatic Play, renowned for their love of epic themes, drop this nice-looking game that will please some, and rub others up the wrong way.
Presented over the standard 5 x 3 format with a modest 20 paylines for your wins, this slot gives you the chance unlock a lucrative bonus round called Jupiter’s Gift.
Gifts from the Gods to get you in a spin
The Jupiter’s Gift is a nice feature, giving you free spins and thus the opportunity for some larger wins, although the feature itself is tricky to trigger with a degree of patience and perseverance required.
Before you dive into the lavish world of the ancient Romans you’ll need to tweak your betting settings. Set your personal betting amount by selecting the coin value, then pick the amount of coins you wish to spend per spin, between 1-10 can be chosen. Hit spin the get things going, or set the autoplay feature to make the game flow a little easier.
Bonuses or colossal standards?
Higher value symbols within the game include four Roman characters, each carrying a different value, the lower value symbols include a sack of gold, goblet of wine, an ear horn, a bunch of grapes and a scroll.
The game’s bonus wild symbol comes in the form of a lion, replacing all other symbols to form winning lines, except the scatter. The quadriga symbol is an interesting one, and can act as both the Glorious Rome bonus scatter, coming in with 10 free spins, and the wild symbol.
Get three or more of the quadriga symbols across the reels to trigger the Jupiter’s gift feature. You’ll be able to unlock up to ten free spins during this round and benefit from a randomly chosen wild symbol that’ll remain in play until the free spins feature ends.
Firstly, the framework of Glorious Rome is ok, but feels a bit rushed, hense our incredibly clever headline. However, when we turn to gameplay things get a little bit better. It does have some nice features, even though they can be on the shy side at times, but the medium volatility might be to blame for that. Overall it’s nice, with some good graphics, even if they do look a bit clipart-ish. Worth a punt though.
