Pompeii Slot Review
Pompeii is an Aristocrat-powered video slot with 5 reels and 243 ways to win. The game originally came from land based casinos and is still one of the most liked and played in the United States but also all over the world. Pompeii was a wealthy Roman city destroyed by Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD – the city is a popular attraction today because of the citizens’ bodies found buried in volcano ashes are still intact today. You can play from as little as 50p a spin to as much as £125 a spin.
The Reel Power or 243 ways to win feature is much more rewarding than the traditional payline format because instead of a limited number of lines, you have 243 ways to win. As long as symbols in combinations are adjacent to each other from left to right, you get a winning line. This include scatter symbols too. You can think of it as the equivalent of having 243 paylines without having to pay for every single line to be enabled.
The volcano is the wild symbol and can replace any other symbol including the scatter symbol. The volcano can only appear on reel 2 and/or 4. This volcano appears on the second reel multiplying wins by 3x and on the fourth reel multiplying wins by 5x. If you get both on a winning line then you get a multiplier of 15x.
The Free Spins feature is triggered when you get 3 Caesar gold coins on the first 3 reels – the number of free spins is proportional to the number of gold coins you landed. Three Caesar gold coins give you 10 free spins, 4 gold coins get you 15 free spins and 5 rewards you with 20. The good thing is that free spins can be re-triggered during the feature.
As in the base game, the volcano becomes a multiplier if it acts as a substitute to complete a winning combination – on reel 2 the payout is multiplied by 3x. That same volcano completing a win on reel 4 will multiply your payout by 5x. What is even better is if the volcano appears on reel 2 and 4 to complete winning combinations, then your winnings are multiplied by 15x! This is where the majority of big wins will come from.
Listen to Caesar when each gold coins appears on reel 1,2 and 3 saying these famous words every time a coin appears: Veni, vidi, vici (I came, I saw, I conquered). Hopefully you will do the same and make a killing at Pompeii slot. It is a high variance game so don’t expect to walk away winning very often – good luck! If you like high variance slots by Aristocrat, I recommend Werewolf Wild.
