The mightiest gladiators of the known world are preparing for the ultimate battle in the Champions of Rome mobile slot, but will you hold your own in this arena?
If you like Ancient Roman casino games then you are in luck because this Champions of Rome slot looks beautiful, authentic and (genuinely) a little dangerous.
You can actually feel the sun scorching down the back of your neck as you face off in the blood-soaked sands of the Colosseum. From Gladiators to detailed stone statues to Roman coins, this is an epic slot at it’s best.
Be careful though. The game studio Yggdrasil are as dangerous as Caesar himself, and they only reward the warriors willing to do whatever it takes to stay in the ring.
2 scatters is all you need in the base game to catch up to 4 extra wilds on screen. Sometimes they will come in a 2×2 formation, sometimes they will randomly be speared into the screen, with all the drama you expect.
But it’s 3 scatters you want to find as you’ll then be given a choice: will you go to the training ground 8 free spins and walk away a little richer? Then play on Rome Rise of an Empire slot, because this Champions of Rome game is wasted on you.
Or will you head to the night time Deathmatch, where you will either walk away with glory and cash or (as the name suggest) with your wallet’s head on a spike?
Personally, we think it’s worth going for the Deathmatch because the wins you can get with those multipliers and extra wilds are just too tempting to walk away. Just be prepared for disappointment as 60% of the time (from what we experienced), you end up with no wins to your name.
Sure. For 1,000 times your line bet, you can buy the free spin slot feature if you are in a hurry. And it can be worth your while – we’ve won over 200 times our bet on a good free spins round.
But don’t forget that battle-hardened gladiators in this arena will generally manage to defeat you, so if you are going to use it, use it sparingly, or at the end of the night when you want to blow a few big bets.
Because ultimately, you don’t actually need it. The free spin bonus comes around often enough, and the 5 of a kind wins with the high paying symbols have given us beautiful wins in the base game.
This Champions of Rome online slot is probably one of our favourites ancient Rome slot of the year, sitting nicely next to the Tiger’s Glory slot from Quickspin for sheer blood and guts needed to survive the experience.

The Gladiator Feature: Whenever you get 2 scatter symbols in the base game one of the following three features will pop up.
One of these features will always be active on every spin of the free spins.
Free Spin Modes: When you get 3 scatters on screen you'll get to choose between 2 different free spin mode.
During the free spins, the red, green or blue gladiator will be chosen and their weapon will be used on each of the spins (as above). More importantly, all the high paying symbols will now be the one same gladiator and have one high value.
If you hit the red gladiator symbol with one of the wilds above, you get an extra free spin.
Training Free Spins: 8 regular Free Spins where you get whatever wins you get on screen.
Deathmatch Mode: You need to his a target of 450 coin win. If you do you get the multiplier on the wins, if you don't, you lose all your wins and consolation prizes is awarded.
Consolation Prizes: If you don't hit your target wins you will get something between 40 and 200 coins or 5 training mode free spins.
Buy the free spins: You can pay 1000 coins to buy into Free Spins (or 1,000 times your coin value). For example, if you are betting 0.01 a spin, you will be buying the bonus with 10 in cash.
This Champions of Rome slot doesn't pull any punches. If you want to win big in this arena you need to take a risk and go for the deathmatch - take off the training wheels and get bloody.
What you don't need to do is buy the bonus, though it's actually relatively affordable if you want to blow your last spin on it. However, with the volatility of the deathmatches, we recommend you wait to get those 3 scatters.
Because the 4 and 5 of a kind wins are really decent, and we've won some happy 40x to 100x our bet in the base game alone. That's not a bad amount when you consider we didn't always have those plentiful wilds on screen each time.
All in all, one of the goodYggdrasil mobile games that doesn't need to be volatile, but plays better if you do.
Champions of Rome is a 5 reel, 3 row 20 payline online slot with three random wild features that trigger in the base game and the bonus free spins. You have two choices of free spins bonuses.
