Head back to ancient Greece in Wild Spartans, a 5 reel, 20 payline slot powered by Red Tiger Gaming. This classically themed slot comes with sticky wilds as well as a free spins feature. Join the battle from between 20p and £60 per spin.

Developer Red Tiger Gaming is a relatively newcomer to the online slots world and like many recent arrivals puts plenty of emphasis on creating impressively designed games. That’s certainly the case with Wild Spartans.

The setting is a road cutting through a field of grain. Standard guard over the reels are a pair of muscled and somewhat camp looking Spartan warriors – they do more than just watch the action though as we’ll expand on shortly.

Joining the lower value playing cards from A to 10 are a dagger, a spear and a Spartan warrior’s helmet. Landing 5 of the latter 2 symbols awards 180 coins. As you’d expect given the name, the wild is central to the action in Wild Spartans. 3, 4 or 5 of them on a payline award 100, 200 or 500 coins.

When wilds hit they can lock in position – look out for the animated warrior who will reveal the number of spins that wild will be frozen for. Better still is if the 2 Spartan guards start banging their spears as this heralds and even lengthier stay for the sticky wilds. It’s possible to land sticky wilds in multiple positions on the same spin which can lead to some very impressive results.

The blonde-haired woman is the scatter – landing 3 of these anywhere on the reels on the same spin will trigger the Free Spins feature. The precise number of spins is determined by how many times the Spartan warriors bang their spins. Any wilds that land during the free spins feature will remain frozen in place for the duration!

Don’t expect to land the feature too often though as it’s very difficult to trigger. It can be worth the wait if you manage to land multiple sticky wilds for a decent number of free spins though.

Wild Spartans is fairly typical of slots from Red Tiger Gaming – the sound and visuals are nicely done and there’s a basic mini feature that arrives regularly. Much harder to come by are the free spins – we’d put the variance on the high side of medium.

This is a pretty simple slot with most of the action coming via the sticky wilds. Expect lengthy down spells. If you get lucky with the sticky wilds when you do trigger the feature, some memorable returns are possible though. If you like the theme, I highly recommend NextGen Gaming’s 300 Shields.
