If you have ever wondered what it would have felt like to be a gladiator in the arena, your best chance to find out is with software developer WMS title Spartacus Call to Arms. This is a dynamic online slot game featuring great visuals and a unique setup. It’s all chains and beautifully decorated armor, with an epic soundtrack to submerge you into that battle atmosphere. The reels are sandwiched between two massive columns and they depict all sorts of combat imagery. There are knives and swords, shields, helmets in every known style and, of course, the gladiators themselves.
As for the layout in this game, it features 5 reels and a total of 4 rows. In addition to those, however, you will notice that on either column there are also 4 positions, but these are independent and we’ll talk more about them in just a bit. The total amount of paylines in this offering is 50 and you can adjust them if you choose, and stakes here are well within a reasonable range starting at a minimum bet of 25p per spin. The maximum possible amount you will be able to wager on these reels is £50 per single spin.
Let’s have a closer look at those columns on either side of the reels. You will notice that with each spin the symbols on the columns will change. Now, they do not partake in winning combos and don’t interact with the main reel set. That is unless you land a Wild symbol on them, and in that case it will be transferred to a random position on the main reels.
What these column positions can help you with, though, is multipliers. If you land 2 or more matching symbols on them, and they will offer you a multiplier on a winning combo with those same symbols. For example, if you land 2 gold coin icons on the columns you will get a 2x multiplier if there’s a winning combination of gold coins on the reels. Better yet, the more matching symbols there are, the higher the multiplier will be. In fact, if you have 8 matching symbols the multiplier will soar up to a whopping 500x.
Keep an eye out for the Wild symbol, because aside from being Wild it can also prove very lucrative. It can appear in any position anywhere on the reels throughout gameplay, and more importantly, it has the capacity to substitute for all symbols when forming winning sequences. The only exception is, of course, the Bonus symbol.
There is one more bonus feature in Spartacus Call to Arms – the Freespins Feature. You can trigger it by landing 3 Bonus symbols on reels 1, 3, and 5 at the same time. This will award you a total of 10 freespins. Furthermore, during the freespins you will get to benefit from more Wilds, and on top of that, the multiplier from the columns will be double what it is in the base game.
You also have the opportunity to retrigger the feature for another 10 freespins. To do this, simply land 3 more Bonus symbols simultaneously during a spin on reels 1, 3, and 5. Thus, you can benefit from a total of up to 20 freespins and potentially even an outrageous 1,000x multiplier.
Spartacus Call to Arms is a great title from any angle you choose to look at it. It boasts superb quality visuals and an amazing overall setting, but beyond that it offers a unique take on gameplay and a rewarding number of special features. We should caution you, however, that this is a very volatile title that can quickly eat away at your bankroll.
