Spartacus Call To Arms Pokie

Based around the leader of a slave rebellion that took place in the 1srt Century BC, Spartacus; Call To Arms is an online pokie from WMS Gaming that aims to capture the excitement and colour of Roman times across 5 reels and 50 paylines. Players can win multipliers on any spin, see a wild symbol create extra winning lines for them, and have a lion award them with free games that will pay out higher prizes.

It’s all played out across a game that has been carefully developed to look realistic and to envelope people in the atmosphere of ancient Rome, even down to the background of columns, decorative golden surrounds to the reels and a wood-effect to main section. Symbols appear to float above this bit and make up winning combinations by lining 3, 4 or 5 of the same type across a payline on adjacent reels running left to right.

Because all lines are permanently activated, there’s a minimum stake of 0.25 to get the reels spinning, and the maximum has been set at 50.00 a go, both values may not suit all people, with a relatively high entry level and relatively low maximum.

Playing Spartacus Call To Arms

All symbols are related to the theme, and the smallest wins come from landing any 3 or more of the gold coins, dagger or shield symbols. Any 3 of a kind pays 4x the line bet, 4 across a line will be worth 7x and a full line of 5 pays 10x, while moving up in value, there’s 3 different gladiator helmets, that are worth up to 20, 25 or 30x depending on which lands on a line.

A female and male gladiator are up next, paying up to 70x or 100x, but players will notice that the columns on each side of the game contain 4 symbols each and these can multiply the wins several times over in a feature called Special Reels.

At the beginning of a spin, a random mix of symbols will be added to the columns and if a winning combination appears, and the symbol that made up the line is on a column, the amount won will be multiplied by the number of times it’s seen on them. So anyone getting a line of 3 daggers for example will win 7x, but if there are 2 dagger symbols on the columns, the payout will be doubled to 14x. The active multipliers will also be displayed above the reels, so there’s no need to actually count them on the columns. It’s a clever feature that works really well and while not guaranteed to result in a multiplier win, in practice it often does.

Wilds And Free Spins

This isn’t the only bonus that players are likely to see, as the game logo will be wild, replacing others if it can then complete a line, or extending combinations across extra reels for a bigger reward. If the wild appears on the columns during a spin, it will move over to a random position on the reels.

Lions usually mean only one thing for rebellious Romans, but rather than being eaten in the arena, players who land the lion symbol in any 3 positions on reels 1, 3 and 5 will be taken to a free spins bonus round. An initial 10 spins are awarded and during these, there are extra wilds in play, while the reel multipliers are doubled in value. If more lions turn up, a further 10 games will be added to the end of any still left to play out.

In the unlikely event that nothing is won in the free spins round, players will still get a prize, as the lion symbol will pay 2x the triggering bet before the extra games begin, but as it’s pretty easy to get a prize in the bonus games, there should be some decent payouts before they end.

The Verdict

WMS Gaming already had the similar Gladiator of Rome pokie in their range and Spartacus: Call To Arms builds on this success with a few extra features and even better graphics. There’s not much in the way of a direct reference to the real-life events of his life and instead this game is all about fights in the Coliseum, but we’ll forget that, as this is an exciting game anyway.

The Special Reels feature is the definite high point and the way that any spin can result in a nice multiplier payout of up to 4x should be enough of an incentive for people to try it out, but the free spins can be even more lucrative, while a popular theme and quality design should make this one of the top pokies in the WMS Gaming range.
