The wars of Ancient Greece are the setting for Trojan Treasure, a 5 reel, 30 payline slot from Ainsworth. This re-telling of a famous battle comes with stacked wilds and a bonus feature that awards up to 13 free spins. Look out for the Trojan Horse which can smuggle 2x and 3x wild multipliers into play during the bonus round. Stakes range from between 30p and £3,000 per spin.
Visually, Trojan Horse is rather well done – an ancient harbour, filled with battling soldiers forms the backdrop to the reels. Those reels include A to 10 playing cards, a galley style ship, a silver coin, a Trojan warrior’s helmet and a swirling shield. Land 3, 4 or 5 of the shield and you’ll win 50, 100 or 1,000 coins.
The famous Trojan Horse is the wild – it can land on reels 3, 4 and 5 only and substitute for all other symbols apart from the scatter. It spins in stacked formation so can fill an entire reel or reels.
The Trojan Treasure Chest is the scatter – land 3, 4 or 5 of these anywhere on the reels on the same spin and you’ll win an award equal to 2, 10 or 100 times your total bet. You’ll also trigger the Free Games feature and with it, 8 free spins.
During the free spins, the standard wild Trojan Horse will only appear on reels 3 and 5. If they land on reel 3, they will be held in place for the remainder of the feature. Also, helping your winning chances is the addition of a wild multiplier horses on reels 2 and 4.
Land a wild multiplier horse on reel 2 and the payout is doubled. On reel 4, you’ll get a 2x or 3x multiplier. Best of all is if wild horses land on reels 2 and 4 as the multipliers are combined (i.e. 5x). All wild multiplier horses are locked in position throughout the free spins after they’ve hit. You can re-trigger more free spins if the scatters fall nicely too with 5 more free spins up for grabs. The paytable is a little flatter than in the base game but the extra wilds make up for any shortcomings there.
Spinning in the base game you’d be forgiven for thinking that Trojan Treasure is a very standard trip back to the land of the ancients – yes, it looks pretty good but the base game action is ordinary. The game springs into life in the bonus round though where the frozen wild multipliers can have a big impact.
If you like donning your virtual toga and enjoy the myth and legend theme, then Trojan Treasure is well worth a look, if only for the feature round. Get lucky there and the famous wooden horse could help you get close to a hidden jackpot. If you like the theme, Divine Fortune by Net Entertainment is a very good choice.
