Roman Chariots Introduction
The thudding of horses’ hooves, the cracks of whips and the cries of battle - it can only be Roman Chariots! A very popular game in real-world casinos, Roman Chariots finally makes its debut in the arena of online free pokies thanks to the developers at WMS. Alongside the excellently realised Ancient Roman theme, players get to enjoy outstanding features like accumulating multipliers, stacking wilds and plenty of free spin bonuses!
Look and Feel
The background to the reel-spinning action is filled by classical-style art of Roman soldiers, perfectly setting the scene for what is about to unfold. Before you get to the reels, you’ll notice the sounds of a gladiator match in full swing - close your eyes and you’ll be transported to the time and world of Ben Hur!
The reels themselves are coloured in pastel tones, and the symbols are artfully drawn representations of everything you’d expect to find at a chariot race. Couple all of this with the exciting symbol animations for every winning spin, and it’s easy to see why this game is so gripping and thrilling!
How to Set Up and Play
Roman Chariots is packed with innovative features, boasting a quite unique format with four sets of reels in total. The main game is straight-forward enough - there are 20 fixed lines across five reels, and bet levels can vary from $0.20 to $20, giving plenty of scope for customisation. But it gets interesting when we look at the reels more closely. Reels 2, 3 and 4 are each connected to their own mini-reels, called A, B and C respectively.
These mini-reels are activated when you land a stacked wild on the reel that they are linked to in the main game. So, for example, a wild that covers the whole of reel 3 will activate mini-reel B. Once activated, future stacked wilds on the main reels will add multipliers to their mini-reel sets. These mini-reels start to spin when you land a green trumpet ‘spin’ symbol anywhere on the reels - either 1, 2, 3 or 5 spins.
Watch out for the red trumpet symbol, which will totally reset the mini-reels if it appears anywhere in the main feature - but when it does, it’ll sweeten the deal with an instant cash payout of 5x your total bet. With the accumulating multipliers, there’s the potential for some serious wins here, which explains why this feature is called Supercharged Reels!
The base payouts might seem low, but bear in mind that Roman Chariots is packed with opportunities to get multipliers to increase your winnings. The playing-card symbols are worth up to 0.8x your bet for a line of all five. The shield or breastplate symbols can be cashed in for a base rate of 1x your line bet.
The centurion’s helmet, complete with red mane, is worth slightly more at 1.2x for a line of five. The soldier himself pays out 1.5x if you collect all five, while the powerful-looking horse is worth a comparatively large 4x for a line of five!
