The games wild is the Centurion and this has the power to replace all of the symbols to create winning combinations, with the exception of the Soldier of Rome bonus and the Soldier of Rome Free spins bonus symbol, however the wild can only make an appearance on the three Mighty Reels and it lands three positions high when it is in full view and then opens up to the top five positions of the Mighty Reels and fills the whole reel respectively, with any other wilds that are in complete view expanding to fill their reels. The seven reels are configured with three Mighty Reels and four Money Burst Reels and as once players spin their reels they will see the four Money Reel Burst reels stop before the three Mighty reels do. If the first three Money Burst reels stop and have matching symbols the fourth reel has an extended spin before stopping. If players, then land a match they will activate the Lightning Spin Bonus feature and players will see the Mighty Reels open, so the complete ten symbols are visible and active.
There is now all 100 pay lines in play and if several symbols match the four symbols in the Money Burst reels these are then added to the Mighty reels. The slot Solider of Rome is complete with an excellent Free Spins Bonus feature which is activated when players land three or more of the bonus or wild bonus symbols land in view on the reels. If players also have the Lightning Spin Bonus feature triggered it is just the bonus symbols on the full Mighty Reels that will count. Players are rewarded with ten free spins when they land three bonus or wild bonus symbols and for every additional bonus or wild bonus symbol providing an additional five free spins. Players need to keep their eyes open for the wilds as they expand and remember that these do not have to appear fully to expand. Synonymous of other Barcrest titles, players are offered the Big Bet feature they are well known for which means that high rollers can play for £20, £30 or £50 and with these bets players receive five linked spins which takes place on 5-reels and 50 pay lines.
Players that choose the £20 bet option will see wilds that are partially in view on the Colossal reels triggering the top portion of the reels and then expanding to cover the respective reel. Playing the £30 option provides the players with the same as the £20 but includers the four lower playing suit symbols removed from the reels to give bigger wins. Finally, the £50 bet will provide the player with the Colossal Reels being permanently active and the 100 pay lines in play too. There is no doubt that this slot sounds complicated however as the reels start spinning it makes a lot more sense. Those who have played Fire Queen from WMS you will already understand the Money Burst portion of the game. The Mighty Reels have been used in Hercules High & Mighty from Barcrest but again these make perfect sense once players start spinning. This medium variance slot will take players a few spins to get used to the combined game engines, but once they do it is sure to become a favourite.
