How does Champions Of Rome work?
At Champions of Rome there are 20 possible paylines, on which you can form combinations with the symbols. You try to complete each spin as much as possible. In addition, there is a Free spin bonus that you can achieve with a certain number of scatters. Fun fact about this game is the choice you have from 2 bonus round, but you can read about that below.
How do you play Champions Of Rome?
First choose a bet that suits you. You can adjust the ‘coin value’ and thus your bet amount directly. A coin value of 0.50 euros gives you a bet of 10 euros. So multiply the coin value by 20, the number of paylines. The minimum bet is 0.10 euros (0.005 euros coin value) and the maximum bet is 100 euros (5 euros coin value). Then the game can start by pressing the spin button. In addition to completing the paylines, it is of course hoping for the bonus round.
The basic symbols consist of the Roman coins that take on different colors. You also have the Premium symbols consisting of the Lion, the Eagle, and the Taurus. Finally, there are 3 different Gladiators, of which 2 wear a helmet. There is also a wild symbol. In this game it is the eagle and it can take the place of all symbols except the scatter.
You usually win the small prizes with the individual paylines. However, there are some big prizes in the normal game. 5 of the same gladiators in a row will give you 1000 to 1200 coins. The premium symbols quickly yield around 100 to 120 coins for a 5 of a kind. For a 5 of a kind with one of the basic symbols you get 30 coins. If you only collect 2 scatters, this will give you extra wilds. So you can get the following 3 options:
- Swords: 2×1 and 1×2 wilds are added to the reels
- Mace: 2×2 wilds are added to the reels
- Trident: 4 random wilds are added to the reels
You activate the bonus round by collecting 3, 4, or 5 scatters during 1 spin. Depending on the number of scatters you will receive both a number of free spins and a certain amount of money:
- 3 scatters: Free spins + x1 multiplier
- 4 scatters: Free spins + x15 multiplier
- 5 scatters: Free spins + x600 multiplier
The nice thing about this bonus game is the fact that you have a choice between two different bonus rounds. Below we briefly explain both:
- Training Free Spin: You get 8 free spins, and you get 4 wilds as a gift! You play the spins in a row and everything you win during the spins is yours! If a wild lands on the monster, you get an extra spin!
- Deathmatch Mode: This is the choice with a higher variance: More risk, but also higher prices! You are supposed to collect more than 450 coins. If this does not work, you will unfortunately lose all your money.. But you do get a prize consisting of a cash prize (40 to 200 coins) or 5 training spins. Are you able to collect more than 450 coins? Then this is multiplied by the chosen multiplier.
You can choose in advance from:
- 7 free spins with 2 x multiplier
- 6 free spins with 3 x multiplier
- 5 free spins with 4 x multiplier
Buy a bonus feature
A ‘Buy a Bonus’ feature has also been added to Champions of Rome. With this you can immediately buy and play the bonus round. This will cost you 50x your bet per spin. Imagine you are playing with a coin value of 1 euro. This means that you play with a bet of 20 euros per spin (x20 paylines), and that you can buy the bonus round for 1000 (bet x50). You then play the bonus round as if you were playing with a 20 euro bet, so it is quite a challenge to make a profit! Furthermore, the bonus round works the same as normal.
Max win & Rating
The maximum win is 3000x your bet! This is a hefty amount. In addition, Champions of Rome scores 3/5 stars!
The game looks beautiful and the animations of the bonus round are nicely made! Furthermore, the bonus round has an original element due to the choice that is presented to you. The rest of the game works as you would expect from such a slot machine, so they score 3 stars!
