Available to spin from 20p to £100 a spin, there is a Dollar sign which will bring up all 20 available stake levels in 1 convenient place. Outside of the UK, there’s an Autoplay function which sees you opt for up to 100 autospins with balance and single win limits. You will also see a Lightning Bolt icon which allows for quicker spins.

legion-x-slot-base-game

The Legion X slot has a Roman Empire theme and is based on the legion of the Imperial Roman Army. There were the terrestrial armed forces of the Roman Empire from 30BC to 476AD in case your were wondering. Specifically, it’s based on the Legio X Gemina legion which was 1 of the 4 legions used by Julius Caesar. Graphically, the game is intense with a soundtrack worthy of a blockbuster Hollywood movie.

With legendary warriors at battle forming the backdrop to the game, the reels are set within a flaming wooden structure. Above the reels you will see SPQR (Senātus Populusque Rōmānus) which is the emblematic abbreviated phrase referring to the government of the ancient Roman Republic. Visually, it has some similarities to Warrior Graveyard.

Symbols on the reels include Roman style A, K, Q, J and 10 royals which appear on shields. There are then 5 barbarian warrior symbols which all look quite intimidating. The barbarian with the helmet is the highest paying symbol (barbarian 5) giving you 0.5, 0.75 or 2.5 x stake for 3, 4 or 5 in combination.

When it comes to wild symbols, there are 3 xNudge wilds, all represented by members of the Roman Legion. Nudge to appear fully visible, more details are available on this below. The wilds substitute for all symbols bar the scatter. Here’s a list of all symbols you’ll come across:

Legion X Mobile

legion-x-mobile-slot

Optimised using HTML5 technology, Legion X can be played on mobile, tablet, laptop and PC devices. This means devices using iOS, Android and Windows operating systems. For the best experience, a large screen is best in my opinion.

Legion X Bonus Features

The Legion X slot game benefits from 9 bonus features. Using xWays, xNudge and Infectious Wilds mechanics, there are 4 free spins features with an increasing win multiplier, wild reels, symbol transformations and more ways to win.

xNudge Wilds feature

legion-x-slot-xnudge-wilds-feature

There are 3 xNudge Wilds to benefit from. A stacked wild will always nudge to appear fully visible and increase the multiplier by 1 for each nudge. This is known as the xNudge feature. When part of the wild lands on the reels, it nudges up or down until fully visible basically.

If you land several nudging wilds, the multiplier are added together rather than multiplied. Land an xNudge wild on the same reel as an Infectious xWays affected symbol and the latter first expands with the xNudge wild second. This allows for a higher potential multiplier.

Infectious Wild feature

The Infectious Wild can land on reels 1 and 5. Land an Infectious Wild symbol triggers the Infectious Wild feature. All instances of a randomly selected low value symbol will transform into wilds on the 3 middle reels. If you land 2 Infectious Wilds, all low value symbols convert into wilds (on the 3 central reels).

xWays feature

The xWays symbol can land on reels 1 and 5. Known as the xWays feature, they transform into any other symbol except the wild or bonus symbol. Basically, the xWays symbol reveals 2-4 symbols of the same type to increase the number of ways to win.

If you land 2 xWays symbols, you will trigger Infectious xWays. Symbols on the middle reels that are the same type will also expand to the same size. This increases the number of ways to win even further.

xWays and Infectious Wild feature

If you land an xWays and Infectious Wild on the first and/or last reel, you will convert all low value symbols into wilds on the 3 middle reels.

Free Spins features

legion-x-slot-legion-x-gemina-spins-feature

The Legion X slot comes with various free spins features. All offering slightly different modifiers, here’s what to expect:

Legion X Spins feature: this is triggered by land 3 Bonus symbols on the 3 middle reels. With 8 free spins awarded, the first and last reel gain an extra row for more ways to win. The win multiplier increases by xNudge Wilds and remain in play throughout the feature. If you land an xWays or Infectious Wild, 1 more free spin is added to your tally. You can upgrade to 1 of the feature below if you land 2 special symbols (xWays or Infectious Wild) on reel 1 and 5 on the same free spin. Which feature you get is determined randomly.

Legion X Equestris Spins feature: this is played when 3 Bonus symbols land on the middle reels and 2 xWays symbols land. With 10 free spins awarded, the first and last reel will display 4 symbols each. xNudge Wilds increase the win multiplier which doesn’t reset. xWays symbols are sticky to give you Infectious xWays on each free spin.

Legion X Fretensis Spins feature: 3 Bonus symbols on the middle reels and 2 Infectious Wilds will give you 10 free spins. With the first and last reel becoming 4-high, the win multiplier increases with xNudge Wilds (and doesn’t reset). The Infectious Wild is sticky to convert all low value symbols into wilds on each free spin.

Legion X Gemina Spins feature: this is activated by landing 3 Bonus symbols (on the 3 middle reels), 1 Infectious Wild and 1 xWays symbol. 10 free spins are granted. With reels 1 and 5 displaying 4 symbols each, xNudge Wilds increase the win multiplier and can only increase. The Infectious Wild and xWays symbols are sticky to convert all low value symbols and trigger Infectious xWays on every free spin.

Nolimit Bonus feature

As with all newer Nolimit City slots, there’s a Nolimit Bonus feature. Not available in the UK, you can buy your way straight into the free spins features from 70 to 1,200 x stake:

70 x stake Legion X Spins feature
300 x stake Legion X Equestris Spins feature
750 x stake Legion X Fretensis Spins feature
1,200 x stake Legion X Gemina Spins feature

Originality








The Legion X slot is another superb production from market-leader Nolimit City. Graphically, it’s brilliant with an intense soundtrack and rather intimidating looking warrior symbols. Every time you land a decent win, you will hear cries which are reminiscent of the Gladiator film.

As with other Nolimit City games to use the various mechanics, a few hundred spins in demo mode is recommended. xNudge Wilds give you fully wild reels with an increase of the multiplier. This happens every 4 spins on average. Infectious Wilds transform low value symbols into wilds and will land every 11 spins on average.

You then have xWays which increase the number of ways to win, up to 72,000. xWays symbols land every 11 spins too (on average). The xWays symbol has the most potential for big payouts. If you land xWays and Infectious Wild symbols on reels 1 and/or 5, all low value symbols on the middle reels become wilds.

Then you have the 4 free spins features which incorporate the various mechanics in one shape or another. The best of them is the Legion X Gemina Spins feature which gives you an increased number of ways to win, an increasing win multiplier and more wilds on the 3 middle reels.

Whilst other Nolimit City slots offer bigger potential max wins (we’re looking at you San Quentin and Mental), Legion X packs quite the punch with 31,000 x stake max wins. With San Quentin offering 150,000 x stake max payouts, the odds of achieving this are 1 in 1.83 billion whilst it’s 1 in 36 million in this Roman Legion inspired title.

If you want more battles with Roman warriors though, NetEnt’s Rome: The Golden Age is a much simpler slot that comes with 100,000 x stake max wins.

Pros
  • 31,000 x stake max wins (1 in 36 million)
  • 4 free spins features
  • Great use of various Nolimit City mechanics
Cons
  • Gameplay can seem complicated at first
