Nobody could ever refuse the chance to head back to Ancient Rome; the Pantheon, the Sistine Chapel and of course, the Colosseum; where some of Rome’s deadliest fighters met to fight for glory and freedom. The theme of Ancient Rome has been explored many times, with hit movies Gladiator and Ben Hur exploring this amazing time. NextGen gaming look to capitalise on this extremely popular theme also with their brand new Call of the Colosseum online slot.
This game has appeared on a wide number of online casinos; most notably redbet, Intercasino and 138.com.
The Call of the Colosseum online slot is based on the intense combat that occurred in the ancient arenas. Like the majority of Vegas-style slot machines this game has 5 reels and twenty paylines. NextGen has captured the essence of Ancient Rome incredibly well, with all the action taking place between two gorgeously rendered columns.
To maintain the theme, NextGen have used ancient golden coins, chariots, Roman military ware and fierce-looking tigers which once prowled around gladiators as the fought. The game also includes the emperor, who is the wild symbol and replaces any symbol in the game. The shield is the scatter symbol and triggers the amazing free spins bonus.
Every slots player – regardless of which online casino they play at – loves free spins. This is the advantage of playing slots over table games such as blackjack and roulette. The free-spins bonus is triggered by landing three or more shield symbols anywhere in the game.
The initial prize is 10 free spins alongside an amazing x2 multiplier on all wins during the features. Not only do you receive this though – every time you land the emperor during the bonus feature he will give you a ‘thumbs down’ or a ‘thumbs up’. In true Gladiator style, if he awards you with a ‘thumbs up’ you will be rewarded with up to 3 free spins! Better than being thrown to the lions!
The gamble feature on the Call of the Colosseum mobile and online slot provides you with the opportunity to double any winnings you might have just received. It is a card picking game where players can either guess the colour to double their winnings, or the suit to quadruple their winnings. The potential to double your winnings straight way can be tempting for some – but be warned, if you gamble and pick the wrong colour, you lose everything!
This game has the potential to keep you entertained for some time with nice graphics and a great theme – it’s just lacking some extra bonus features that more modern games have such as The Dark Knight.
