Roman Chariots Slot Review
Roman Chariots is WMS Gaming-powered video slot which has 4 sets of 5 reels and a maximum of 80 paylines (20 paylines per slot as its essentially 4 slots). Playable from 40p to £120 a spin, the game has a Roman Empire theme which focuses on the wealthy and prestigious citizens who enjoyed chariot races. This is the first Supercharged Reels slot to be released by WMS.
The game benefits from wilds, scatters and more importantly Supercharged Reels that can give you multiplied wins. This is an innovative slot where you charge up extra reels above the main reel set. You can do this by collecting a full reel of wilds (on reels 2, 3 and/or 4) which will then charge up the corresponding reel set above and keep the streak going to increase the multiplier!
When you see the spin symbol on the last (5th reel), the charged reel sets spin giving you the chance to win bigger. However, the whole charge can disappear with just 1 unlucky symbol. It can go up between 2x and 5x every time the spin symbol appears which can lead you to huge multipliers up to 40x!
There is also a great Free Spins Bonus feature which is activated when you get the Bonus Wheel symbol on reels 1 and 5 of the main reel set. This will reward you 8 free spins and 2 times your overall stake. An alternate set of reels is used during the feature but they have the same winning potential. What makes this feature interesting is the Supercharged Reels element – there’s no reset on the main reel set meaning you are guaranteed to win.
Reading the above can sound quite confusing but I love the fact Williams Interactive (or WMS Gaming) are creating innovative slot games with different and imaginative features. I found there to be quite a few wins in the base game giving you small wins on average. Saying that, most of the bigger wins will come in the free spins feature which is quite difficult to trigger. That leads me onto the conclusion this is a medium to high variance slot – you need to be patient in my opinion because huge wins do come along (even though not very often!).
