Age of Spartans
Age of Spartans
Well, it’s time to brush up on your history in a race to win against ancient history’s toughest soldiers. Welcome to the Age of Spartans slot, a military-themed romp from the golden days of Ancient Greece and game maker Genii. We love a game themed on the ancients like the Champions of Valhalla slot machine, and this Ancient Greek game fits right into that category.
There’s something pretty enticing about the thought of grabbing some armour and flexing those slot muscles in order to land a mega win. Ready yourselves for a showdown between the ancient Athenians and their nemesis, the Spartans my Wombat friends.
So far as we know, the Spartans were human fighting machines, with boys raised to be soldiers from early childhood. Crikey, there’s no laying around scratching furry stomachs for this lot! I’ll think you’ll find that we wombats are made of pretty stern stuff as well. Can Spartans leave cuboid deposits? No. I didn’t think so. Let’s get to the games and show ’em who’s boss, shall we?
Look and Feel
The reels set are carved out of the rough and ready rocks of the harsh and battle-hungry Sparta. Each of the reels is backed in wood with the tough military icons of warfare on the reels. Forget your fruit machines like the Neon Fruit Cityscape slot, this one is heavily themed.
Listen up for some great drumming and the sounds of a fast-approaching battle. That should get the heartbeat going!
This dramatic chapter of military history plays out over over 3 rows, 5 reel and 9 pay-lines, just one less than the Aurora Wilds slot – the Northern Lights game.
The highest value standard icon is a hand grasping a war horn, then there’s a serious-looking Queen of the Spartans, a blood-red flag, a golden helmet, and the killer pairing of a shield and sword.
The freaky staring eyes of the Spartan king peering through his helmet are this game’s Wild. Well, now you’ve gazed into that bloke’s eyes, you can see why these soldiers were feared. He looks like an Aussie Rules player after he’s been given a wedgie.
Aunty Winona Wombat says that I used to get the same look if I haven’t had my mid-morning mango slices. Any win that the Wild contributes to is doubled in value thanks to this merciless king.
An arrow-covered shield is the Scatter that should give you a bit of rough and tumble on the reels in the form of some free spins.
For a chance of a historic victory you will need to get your paws on 3 or more shield Scatters which will fire off 15 free spins. History only remembers the victors: get yourself a win in this feature and you’ll discover that there’s a triple multiplier at play. That worth a round of Vegemite sandwiches.
And, if you land a further 3 Scatters, it’s party time again with a further 15 free spins.
Gambling on a Winner
After any win, you can opt to pick up the Gamble Challenge and predict the suit or colour of an unturned playing card.
Be careful though as you could lose your pot if Lady Luck is against you. But, if your colour or suit prediction is spot on, you can expect to double or quadruple your win. Nice!
The Age of Spartans slot will have you slinging arrows and spears before you can say free spins. And we’re talking free spins that come with a triple multiplier and a way of re-triggering the bonus game. This chapter in Greek history might be spartan by name, but it’s not spartan by nature.
Score: 3.7 out of 5
Hopefully you’ll be tucking into the hummus and tzatziki after playing on this one.
