Oh, Rome! With its grand Colosseum, gladiators, architectural beauty, and the story of the legendary Spartacus, it’s no wonder that game developer powerhouse WMS felt inspired to bring this ancient city to the world of slot machines.
Spartacus was a warrior turned slave forced to fight as a gladiator who led a revolt with his fellow captives by fighting their way to freedom initially only armed with kitchen utensils. After taking weapons from their disarmed foe, they defeated battalion after battalion sent after them at their stronghold on Mount Vesuvius. Spartacus was the ultimate rebel inspiring freedom fighters everywhere.
WMS captures the mystery and beauty of Ancient Rome in the breathtaking Colossal, Spartacus slot machine, which features two sets of reels and 100 pay lines. Come and join Spartacus in his journey to fight for his freedom.
Basic Game Experience for Spartacus
First off, let’s just talk about how beautiful this game is. The graphics are amazing, not just inside the game itself because of the symbols, but also the frame around the reel sets. It truly is a work of art. The main symbol, Spartacus himself, looks like a renaissance painting with a crested, golden helmet, decorative shield, glistening sword, and a bold, red tunic.
Likely due to being mindful of gender equality, WMS included a secondary symbol that is a female gladiator, equally stunning in its artistry. Even if you get the alternating male and female symbols blocking you from a win, it is still a sight to behold.
An even better sight is getting four or five of the Spartacus or the female gladiator symbols aligned in a row which triggers a deep, dynamic voice to say “Fantastic” and gives you a significant win.
The Spartacus game is a Colossal game, which means it has one set of reels that is five reels and four rows and a second set that is five reels and a whopping 12 rows. It is colossal, hence the name. The two sets of reels have a combined total of 100 pay lines. The game play is similar between the two reel sets, but not exactly the same.
For one, the highest paying symbols, Spartacus and the female gladiator, are large symbols filling the reel in the 5×4 reel set and even larger in the 5×12 Colossal reel set, filling eight spaces of the reel.
Also, when the wild symbol fills the reel in the 5×4 reel set, it transfers over and fills the corresponding reel in the 5×12 reel set, replacing whatever symbols appeared there except for the feature symbol. The other symbols stack on the Colossal reel side anywhere from four to eight in a row down the length of the reel, depending on the symbol. Symbols that can be found in the game include:
- Female gladiator
- Spartacus Wild Symbol
During game play, the sounds of fighting gladiators, crowds yelling, and clashing swords play in the background along with those familiar WMS jingles that signify various wins. The Colosseum symbol acts as the feature symbol and appears only on reels one, three, and five of either reel set allowing you to have a total of five feature symbols in one spin which triggers the bonus feature.
The Bonus Feature
When you land three Colosseum symbols, this triggers the bonus feature giving you eight spins. Four Colosseum symbols will give you 12 spins, and five symbols will give you 20 spins. Three or more Colosseum symbols appearing during the bonus round retrigger even more spins. All wins double during the bonus round.
Any wild symbol that appears in the 5×4 reel set during the bonus expands to fill the reel causing it to transfer to the Colossal reel set side. The bonus round has an energetic, pounding soundtrack reminiscent of a Hollywood film score. All of these features combined make the bonus rounds very exciting.
How to Play Spartacus Online in the United States
Although this game is easy to find in land-based casinos throughout Atlantic City, it’s not as easy to find online. You need to live in a state that has legalized online gambling, which is few and far between.
If you are lucky enough to live in or are visiting New Jersey, you can find Spartacus online at BetMGM Online Casino and Golden Nugget Casino. Both casinos offer a free no deposit casino bonus, allowing you to play Spartacus slots online for real money. You can also take advantage of the deposit bonus or opt to play Spartacus for free. To get the no deposit bonus, you’ll want to use our Golden Nugget bonus code or the BetMGM bonus code on signup.
Other states are expected to follow both NJ and PA online casinos. This includes West Virginia, Michigan and Colorado. All three states will launch online casinos in the near future.
I’m not gonna lie, I love this game, so I’m a little biased. It’s probably my all-time favorite game to play at the casino. If you haven’t tried playing Spartacus yet, you should try it. It is one well-made, entertaining game. Well done, WMS.
