Nero’s Fortune Video Slot Review

Nero’s Fortune: Demo

Get spinning while Rome burns in Nero’s Fortune, an ancient-themed slot from Quickspin. Played using a 5×5 grid, this cluster pays slot comes with tumbling reels, burning arrows that bring expanding multipliers into play and a bonus round where up to 14 free spins are on offer, complete with even more multipliers. Stakes in this high variance slot start at 20p, rising to a maximum of £100 per spin.

The Great Fire of Rome

The setting here is the Great Fire of Rome. Set against a backdrop of blood red, smoke filled skies, the reel grid is set within a marble columned building. Joining the lower value A to J symbols are 3 animal emblems as well as a bright red jewel.

Cluster Pays game engine

To form a winning combination, you need to land a cluster of 5 or more matching symbols. The most lucrative symbol is the red jewel which pays 1x your total bet for a minimum 5-symbol cluster but can rise to 75 x your bet if you land 20 in combination.

Tumbling Reels

Land a successful combination and those symbols are removed from the grid and new symbols drop down from above to replace them. If a new winning cluster is created, the process is repeated.

Burning Arrows

After a tumble takes place, arrows can fire onto the recently vacated positions and add a flaming cross. If a new winning combination uncovers a cross following a tumble, it adds 1x to a multiplier. You can see how high the multiplier is at the bottom of the reels. The multiplier resets to 1x following a winless tumble.

Flames of Nero free spins

Land 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols anywhere on the reels on the same spin and you’ll trigger the Flames of Nero feature. Your reward is 10, 12 or 14 free spins. Boosting your chances here are multipliers which are placed beneath random positions on each free spin. These accumulate throughout the free spins and can deliver some big payout boosts.

Fiery theme, fiery action

There’s a fiery theme in Nero’s Fortune and that’s matched by the equally sizzling gameplay. This is a high variance game. Big risks can deliver big rewards with potential max payouts of 8,168 x your bet from a single spin or free spin. Classy looking as usual and boasting a lush orchestral score, the design is A+ as usual from Quickspin. If you like the ancient theme, then it’s worth trying to land some of Nero’s Fortune. You could also try your luck with Playtech’s official Gladiator movie slot, Gladiator Road to Rome, which offers bonus features and a huge progressive jackpot.
