Naturally the setting of this game has to be in the Roman Era with its entire splendor. Colors and graphics are state-of-the art with a flawless appeal. Characters are 3D with a level of detail for make-up to stand-out. The game loads a bit slow, but this is characteristic for the developer Softbet. Players will enjoy the music with harps and birds chirping. There are only nine pay lines on this five reel beauty. Payouts are left to right, although the scatter pays in any direction. Settings and a feature to go full screen are located at the top of the screen. Wagers are in one cent to one dollar and can be changed using two arrows at the bottom of the screen. The controls are clean with only six boxes with the pay table, line bet, coin value, large golden spin button, auto spin, and win for the pay outs displayed. Auto play can be set with as many as 50 spins. This convenience feature works seamlessly.
The emperor and his queen are the only human characters worth 1,000 and 800 coins for five symbols. Ten other game symbols consist of two swords, one gold pitcher, a gold insignia ring, a golden head wreath, and two gold coins. Their values range from 500 coins to as little as 200 for five icons that land anywhere on the reels. Letters and numbers are the remaining symbols in different colors and green laurel wrapped around them. The letters A, K, and Q are worth 150 coins when five icons land during play. The letter J and number 10 are both worth 100 coins for the same five symbols. A golden stature of a man on a horse is the instant bonus symbol, while a golden Trojan’s helmet is the scatter icon. The wild is a gold bird worth 1,000 coins when five are successfully earned. Scatter symbols are a picture of the main Colosseum. They are worth 1,800 coins for players that secure five symbols.
There is a Bonus Wheel and Instant Bonus that randomly appear. The Emperor and Queen are standing at either side of the large wheel with coin amounts displayed on each rung. It is in a setting with flowing red curtains and gold accents on the wheel. Players need to earn three or more wheel bonus icons to activate the round with 4,950 additional coins at stake. The Instant Bonus symbol must land on at least three reels to trigger this feature. Prizes include free spins and a variety of multipliers. This bonus awarded quickly and more often than the Bonus Wheel game. Animation is limited in the free spin feature similar to the regular play mode.
The game lets players know when they win by using gold lines and rolling gold numbers. A male voice also announces when there is a bonus win and for other features. Once the instant bonus is triggered, players click on each symbol to see the number of multipliers and free spins they have earned. This is followed by a plaque displaying how many coins were won to reach the bonus round. Reels respond quickly in both regular and free spin mode. Roman numerals line the outside of the reel, which make it simple to know the winning lines. There is also a display at the bottom above the spin button that lists this information. This is a respectable game that can be played when quick winning action is desired.
