The call of the Colosseum, hmm… this puts us in ancient Rome, we know that much for certain. But this is a game with far more to offer than a standard theme. We are treated to some amazing graphics here, including some ancient coins, a lady holding a rose, a roaring tiger, and the Colosseum itself.
It’s a pleasing game to the eye, but will it be a pleasing game to play? Let’s find out the answer.
This is a five-reel slot, as you might suppose, and it has 25 clearly-marked paylines to the sides of those reels.
Click on the cog and you will be able to choose your coin value, which could be between a cent and $25. Once you’ve set the amount, you’re good to go.
Most games set in ancient Rome feature an emperor, and this one is no different. He appears as the wild and will substitute for all but one other symbol. This is the shield, which is used as a scatter in the game. Just two shields are required to trigger a prize. Three or more is better though, for reasons you will discover shortly.
There are some free games to be won here, and you can win 10 of them if you find three or more shields during a base game spin. Doubled prizes are given in these spins.
That’s not all, though. Watch out for the wild emperor to appear. When he does, he will display either thumbs up or thumbs down. If you get the thumbs up, you will win between one and three extra free games. This occurs every time you get thumbs up, but nothing is awarded for the thumbs down.
Who would have thought thumbs would play an intriguing part in this game from NextGen Gaming? It just goes to show even a standard-looking game can have some surprises to impart. There isn’t a progressive jackpot in play here, but you do get the chance to win through to those free spins, where you’ll be watching closely to see what happens. Will the emperor grant more for you to play? You never know how generous those emperors are going to be…
