If you loved the film 300, you’ll love Sparta. Read our full review below.
Hail Sparta!Life in Sparta was dominated by the military, with young boys training to be warriors from the age of seven. Renowned for its harshness and discipline, Spartan life has been captured by the use of desert tones and plenty of rocks in the design of this slot. It doesn’t make for the most attractive game, and the card symbols on their rocky backdrop have a high enough frequency that the visuals become a little monotonous. However, the animations are extremely well done, particularly the warrior who expands to fill reels 1, 3 and 5. Coin values range from 0.01 to 20 and you can play 1, 3, 5, 10, 15, 20 or all 25 paylines. Payouts are in coins, with a 3x multiplier during the free spins bonus which obviously favours a larger wager. The paytable may be dominated by the low paying card symbols but the anvil, helmet, warship, warrior and ballista are extremely well and authentically rendered.
Warrior wilds and catapult scattersThe warrior wild expands on reels 1, 3 and 5 to expand the possible winning combinations and land some worthwhile wins. The ballista catapult is the scatter symbol in Sparta and 3 or more will trigger the pick a shield game. Each shield disguises up to 7 free games and you can pick 3 shields to discover your free spin bonus. During the free spins game, the ballista is replaced by Zeus, the king of the Greek Gods, as the scatter symbol and all wins are paid out with a 3x multiplier. With the Zeus symbol carrying a 600 coin reward for a full house of 5 symbols, there’s a possibility of building your winnings with speed. Each win can be gambled with a double or nothing ‘beat the dealer’ bonus game and Sparta also offers a progressive jackpot that can trigger at any time.
