Spartacus Gladiator of Rome Video Slot review
Spartacus Gladiator of Rome is WMS-powered video slot – it’s a Colossal Reels game that has both a 5×4 and 5×12 reel set. It has 100 paylines and you can play from just 50p a spin up to £250 a spin. The game is based on Spartacus who became the Gladiator of Rome from being a slave leader.
The Spartacus slot is not traditional in the reel layout it uses (as you will see). Basically explained, stacked wilds on the 5×4 reel set transfer over to the 5×12 reel set (right hand side). So Wild Reels transfer to Colossal Reels and expand to fill en entire reel set – giving you more chances to win big.
The game benefits from a Free Spin feature which is triggered by getting 3 or more Coliseum feature symbols across both reel sets (effectively on reels 1, 3, 5, on both reel sets). You will receive 8 free spins with 2 times your stake for 3 Coliseum symbols, 12 free spins with 5 times your stake for 4 Coliseum symbols and 20 free spins with 20 times your stake for 5 or more Coliseum symbols.
Look out for the Spartacus Wild symbol during the feature on the main reel set on the left for it to stack making all 4 reel positions on the reel wild. It will transfer over to the Colossal Reel set making the whole reel wild. During the feature, 3 or more Coliseum symbols across both reels sets will reward you with additional free spins. The big wins will come when the high value symbols come in 5s (even without wilds).
The Spartacus Gladiator of Rome slot is a great game in my opinion with huge wins available in the Free Spin feature. I quite like Colossal Reels slots (such as KISS Shout It Out Loud) and once you start playing, you will see the benefits. I cannot recommend the Spartacus slot highly enough.
WMS have released further Colossal Reels slots like Giant’s Gold and Lunaris but you have Hercules Mythical Warrior and Li’l Red Riches which are available exclusively (for now) at William Hill Vegas – I can’t wait for them to be available at all WMS casinos.
