Shields of Rome from Playtech bases its theme on the famous Centurion and their fierce military prowess. Armed with ‘Wild Fire Spins’, wilds, expanded symbol and ‘The Great War Free Spins,’ conquer up to 320 coins/payline!
Senātus Populusque Rōmānus (S.P.Q.R.)
Playtech is known for stunning artwork, and you only need to look at Kingdoms Rise or similar games for an appreciation. The slot is set on a field of battle with the golden coloured sky painting the background of centurion legions, trebuchets and others in a haze.
An S.P.Q.R. banner, a symbol of the mighty ancient Roman Republic, flaps in the wind. The centurion symbols include an armour cuirass, helmet and a sword & sheath. These are followed by a goblet of wine, battle plans and five royal flush poker symbols.
A heroic tune accompanies the game along with the crackling of a flame to reinforce the epic theme.
Golden Eagle Wild
The golden eagle of ancient Rome, with its wings stretched, represented the vast expanse of the Roman Empire. Here, it is a wild that replaces all symbols except the Catapult Bonus and Special shield symbols.
It appears only during the Wild Fire Spins. The symbol can form an exclusive payline of five symbols to reward the top prize of 320 coins!
Fully Expanded Centurion
An important symbol that we need to mention is the Centurion, who can appear fully or partially on any of the 5-reels. He occupies up to four rows. He is also unique because he can form a payout left-to-right with as little as two symbols instead of the more conventional three or more.
Shields of Rome Wild Fire Spin
The Wild Fire Spin feature is exciting because it is activated on every 10th spin. First, we should mention that the spaces over which a special symbol containing the S.P.Q.R. initials land on, during the previous ten spins, are marked with fire. These flames then become gold eagle wilds for the Wild Fire Spin feature. The marked spaces are removed after the feature is complete.
Great War Free Games
The Great War Free Games feature commences with the appearance of three bonus scatter symbols on the second to fourth reels. It gives you one of the following four choices:
- 15 free games + 5 randomly-placed wilds
- 10 free games + 7 randomly-placed wilds
- 5 free games + 10 randomly-placed wilds
Mystery Shield with a combination of either 15, 10 or 5 free games + either 5, 7 or 10 randomly-placed wilds.
Shields of Rome slot has an RTP of 95.20%, with low variance corresponding to the relatively lower maximum payout. You can wager anywhere from 0.10 to 500 over the 40 paylines.
The game is designed with mobility as well as stationary players in mind so you can play it on the go using an Android or iOS, as well as a traditional desktop. Take up arms and prepare for battle for ‘Roma Invicta’ (unconquered Rome) today! Read more reviews from this producer here.
