Shields of Rome Theme/Symbols
The Shields of Rome slot has an ancient Roman Empire theme as you join soldiers in battle. With a battle scene in the background featuring Roman temples and the infamous army, symbols include A, K, Q, J and 10 royals. You’ll also see maps, goblets, swords, helmets, armour and Roman soldiers. The latter is the most lucrative with 2, 3, 4 or 5 giving you 0.1, 1.5, 2.5 or 6 times your stake.
Wild Fire Spin feature
Shields of Rome comes with a Wild Fire Spin feature which occurs after every 10th spin. If a special S.P.Q.R special symbol lands on any base game spin, that symbol’s position is marked with fire. On your 10th spin, all positions marked with fire become wild for that spin. The golden eagle wild only appears during the feature and replaces all symbols bar the bonus and special symbols – 5 across a payline will give you 8 times your stake.
Great War Free Games feature
Look out for the bonus symbol as 3 of them appearing on the 3 middle reels (reels 2, 3 and 4) will trigger the Great War Free Games feature – you then choose from 4 options:
- 15 free spins with 5 random wilds on each free spin
- 10 free spins with 7 random wilds on each free spin
- 5 free spins with 10 random wilds on each free spin
- Mystery Shield – you’ll get 5, 10 or 15 free spins with 5, 7 or 10 random wilds on each free spin
Lastly, Shields of Rome has a Buy feature – click on the Buy Feature blue button to enter the Great War Free Games feature. This will set you back 80 times your total stake.
Shields of Rome slot thoughts
The Shields of Rome slot certainly looks good – as for the gameplay, I do like the random wilds on every free spin. Saying that, the most you can win from each spin or free spin is 320 times your stake (by filling the reels with wilds). Low variance, Playtech could have made the symbols more valuable and increased the variance to make this a slot worth coming back to.
If you like the Roman empire theme and want bigger potential payouts, Playtech’s Gladiator Road to Rome is recommended – it’s the official slot from the iconic Gladiator film and can pay out a life-changing progressive jackpot.
