Swords clang against the shields and helmets with blood-red crests as the fearless Spartan warriors clash with their enemies in battle. Join the legendary army, hear the din that rises above the battlefield, and win an epic reward! This is a review of the “Spartans’ Legacy” video slot by GameArt.
Sparta, a famous city-state of Ancient Greece, was known for its formidable army, discipline, and an uncommon degree of freedom that the Spartan women enjoyed, especially compared to the conservative Athens. Sparta existed from around 900BC to 192BC when it was annexed by the Achaean League, a confederation of city-states.
The boys of Sparta began their military training once they turned 7. They lived together in communal dormitories and were taught fighting and the survival techniques, as well as reading, writing, and dancing. By the age of 20, these young men were accomplished warriors and entered the active military service which lasted for a decade. Traditionally, the wife of a Spartan who was going to war would give him the shield and pronounce a ritual phrase “With this or upon this” meaning there were only two ways in which the mac could come back: either with victory or carried dead upon his shield.
“Spartans’ Legacy” is a 5-reel, 4-line medium-variance video slot with 50 paylines and an RTP of 96,35%.
The lower-level symbols are 9 and 10 that pay from 12x to 75x, and Jack, Queen, King, and Ace that pay 100x maximum. The higher-paying symbols are the two crossed Swords, the Ship, the Helmet (paying from 25x to 1000x your bet), and the portrait of the beautiful and dangerous Queen (awards you a fabulous 2000x prize if you manage to get five of these symbols in a row). A mysterious Persian warrior in a hood (getting Assassin’s Creed vibes here) and a shield are the Scatter symbols. The helmed warrior caught mid-battle cry is the Wild symbol that substitutes any other symbol except for the Scatter.
