Roman Chariots is a five reel game with twenty pay lines. The player will also see three smaller reels in yellow, blue and orange set above the main one. These are the Supercharged reels introduced by the creative developer WMS Gaming. Roman Chariots is the first of the Supercharged reels slots game WMS has produced for the online market.
The Theme Is Of the Old Roman Sport Of Chariot Racing
The background of the game is Ancient Rome, with the chariot racing of the title, and horses and Roman soldiers, and the wealthy citizens of the Roman Empire who watched the races. Even the reels are set against an illustration of Roman soldiers.
The main symbols are crossed swords, a shield, a breast plate and soldier’s helmet, the Charioteer himself and the horse. The lower value symbols are the standard playing cards, from 10 through to Aces. The Wild symbol is the Charioteer himself, and it can appear stacked on reels two, three and four. With these Wild symbols the Supercharged reels come into play.
Free Spins Round Available
Like in several games, if the player hits the Bonus symbol anywhere on the main reels, he will be awarded at least eight free spins. In addition, the Reset button is removed during the free spins feature, so all sorts of exciting events can be activated, with no Reset button to put an end to them. All payouts won during the free spins round will also be multiplied by two.
It will be possible to trigger an even bigger multiplier whenever the player finds a special Spin symbol on the end reel. This will reveal a multiplier of its own, which will increase the already large multiplier attached to the Supercharged reels. The Spin button will allow the player one free spin, with each of the multipliers in play.
Roman Chariots is not a traditional slots game at all, as WMS Gaming gives players the possibility of some great wins with a spin of one of the Supercharged reels.
Supercharged Reels – an Innovative Addition
The Supercharged reels is a bonus type feature o n which the player is awarded a set of spins on a separate set of reels, and depending on which set of reels the player uses and puts into play, any winning combination that appears will greatly increase in value because of a multiplier attached to the reels.
If the player lands on the Stacked Wilds on reels 2, 3 and 4, the smaller reels on top of the main reels will be activated. Every time the player hits consecutive Stacked Wilds on reels 2, 3 and 4, the smaller reels linked to that reel will earn a multiplier. Up to five times multipliers can be won. The Wilds will transform from the main reels on to the respective mini reels.
The mini reels only spin when the player hits the free spin symbol on main reel five. Then all three sets of smaller reels spin five times, and give the player more chances of payouts. The smaller reels go back to their original form when you hit the Reset button. The Reset button appears on reel five, together with the green Spin button, which also awards some benefits.
