Roman Chariots by WMS Gaming
Roman Chariots was originally a very popular slot that was fund in many brick and mortar casinos around the world. Due to its massive popularity, WMS Gaming have recreated the classic slot for online. Currently Roman Chariots is only available on mobile platform via a Flash enabled web browser. The slot has a wide wager limit for its twenty adjustable paylines ranging from 0.20 up to 10. This makes it a great slot for all budgets. Beginners and experienced players alike will be drawn to Roman Chariots due to its popularity and extra features.
Roman Chariots is a medium variance slot. There are a few big wins but they are a bit difficult to land. The small wins do happen often, but not as often as on a low variance slot. This makes Roman Chariots a well balanced slot that will entertain for a decent amount of time.
Ancient Roman Theme
Slot developers love to make use of ancient civilisations in their slot creation. Roman Chariots is a pretty self explanatory theme, based on the ancient civilisation of Rome. Although there are many slots with the same theme, Roman Chariots stands out due to its popularity in brick and mortar casinos and it very detailed graphics.
Not all the symbols in Roman Chariots are theme based. At the bottom of the pile we have the basic poker card letters and numbers. These range from 10 up to Ace and have not really had a lot of work put into them. Next up we have actual theme related symbols such as horses, armour, shields, swords and helmets. None of the symbols animate, but theme based ones are well designed and quite intricate.
Special symbols in the game include a stacked wild and a scatter. The stacked wild symbol is a Roman warrior on a chariot and is found on reels two three and four. This has two duties. The first is to replace all other symbols in the game except for the scatter, and the second is to trigger the Supercharged Reels feature.
The games scatter is a Bonus Wheel symbol that is found on reels one and five. This will launch the free spins round which is played on a different set of reels. The player will receive eight free spins as well as a two times multiplier to their stake. The Supercharged Reels feature is active on the free spins reels as well as the regular ones.
WMS have come up with a rather innovative feature called Supercharged Reels. Roman Chariots is the first of their slots to offer it, making it somewhat of a flagship game. Supercharged Reels is essentially a whole new set of reels that appear above your regular ones. This is triggered by finding a full reel of wilds on reels two three or four. The Spin symbol that appears on reel five causes these extra reels to spin, potentially giving the player a much greater win. A multiplier to the player’s initial bet is also given when these mini reels spin.
The mini reels continue to spin until a reset icon is found. The scatters are multiplied by the total bet and are added to the pay-line wins during the free spins bonus. Also during the free spins round, there is no reset button on the main reels. This means that the player is guaranteed to win something from the free spins and the Supercharged Reels.
