Spartan King Slot RTP, Details & Wager Limits

The Spartan King slot uses 5 reels, 4 rows and 40 paylines. Winners are formed by landing 3 or more matching symbols or wilds in a payline, starting from reel 1.

You can join the battle here at bet levels that range from between 20p and £100 per spin. The paytable payouts are all shown as exact cash prizes rather than coins which we prefer as it keeps things nice and straightforward. Autoplay is available if required. You can run between 10 and 1,000 autospins. There are also options for quick and turbo spin mode if you really want to crank up the pace.

The Spartan King RTP is 96.6% which is way better than average figure. The action here can be incredibly fiery. The Spartan King volatility is extremely high. We’re in 10 out of 10 country here as far as variance is concerned.

High risks can deliver some potentially big rewards though. The Spartan King maximum win stands 7,480 x your total stake from a single spin.

Theme – Audio & Design Features – join Leonidas

spartan-king-slot-base-game

There’s usually little cause for concern when it comes to the design of games from Pragmatic Play and the Spartan King slot is up to the developer’s usual impressive standards. With a Greek mythology theme, it’s based on the legendary Leonidas warrior who was king of the Greek state Sparta.

The comic book style design here is very well realized. The imagery is neat and crisp and packed full of detail. There’s a stirring military-style backing track blasting away in the background while you spin. Combined with the high-class visuals, it makes for quite the spectacle. It will remind you of the 300 Shields slot by NextGen Gaming visually.

The deep red reels are set within marble columns. There you’ll find gold A to J symbols and 4 higher paying symbols that relate to the Spartan theme. In order of value are a sword, helmet, ship and warrior. The warrior symbol is the highest paying. Land 3, 4 or 5 for a payout of 1, 3.75 or 7.5 x your total stake.

There’s also a Leonidas wild symbol that can appear on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 only and a 2x2 wild block that can appear anywhere. Landing any combination of 5 wilds on a payline delivers an award of 10 x your total stake.

You can join the Spartan King in this battle on all devices including computer, tablet and smartphone. The crisp design is lovely and sharp, even when playing on a small screen device. The gameplay is straightforward which is also suited to mobile play.  Overall, it’s another impressively designed slot from the Pragmatic Play design team.

Spartan King Bonus Features

The range of extras on offer in the Spartan King slot isn’t massive. The extras that are available can deliver some knockout action though. Look out for colossal 2x2 wilds as well as a free spins feature where those colossal wilds can really come into their own.

2x2 Wilds feature

The giant shield covered in arrows can appear on any spin. This 2x2 block is wild and substitutes for everything apart from the scatter when it makes up part of a winning combination. This comes in addition to the standard Leonidas wild.

Free Spins feature

spartan-king-slot-free-spins-feature

The red military banner is the bonus symbol. Land 3, 4 or 5 of these anywhere on the reels on the same spin and you’ll pocket an award equal to 1, 5 or 20 x your total stake. You’ll also trigger the game’s Free Spins feature. The more bonus symbols, the more free spins initially:

  • 3 Banners = 8 free spins
  • 4 Banners = 10 free spins
  • 5 Banners = 12 free spins

The colossal 2x2 wilds can appear during the free spins. They come with extra attached too in the form of a multiplier. Whenever a colossal wild appears, the whole of the payout from that spin is boosted by a multiplier of 2x, 3x, 5x, 10x, 15x or 25x.

Finally, retriggers are possible here too. Landing 3, 4 or 5 scatters will get you another round of 8, 10 or 12 free spins. There’s no limit to how many additional free spins you can win.

Spartan King Review Summary – not hugely original but free spins can be a cracker

These ancient warriors have become a popular source of inspiration for slot developers. There’s nothing massively innovative about this instalment but what the Spartan King slot does offer it delivers very nicely.

Visually, it’s superbly done. Likewise, the stirring soundtrack. The gameplay won’t be winning any awards for originality but the free spins with colossal wilds and multipliers is a potentially exciting combination. Tread carefully though as this is an extremely volatile slot.

If you enjoy this theme, the Spartacus Megaways slot by WMS is recommended. Looking for colossal symbols? Monkey’s Gold by Nolimit City comes with 2x2 or 3x3 colossal symbols with multipliers up to 500x.
