Trusts us when we say that you’ll follow this Leonidas King of the Spartans mobile slot to hell and back, in a battle that will see you bathe in glory.
There’s something about the mythos of Sparta that inspire great slot games. After all, another favourite of ours, 300 Shields by NextGen, equally uses the theme to create a beautiful experience.
Amaya is no different, in fact, you could argue they might even be a little better, blending sharper graphics, 40 paylines, and big wins that don’t need free spins – though they help.
Don’t be fooled. Though you’ll get wins here and there as you play, this Leonidas King of the Spartan online slot requires care; this is a battle, not a walk in the park.
Keep your eye on your budget, as your best chances for big wins is when the Leonidas symbol, the highest paying over these 5 reels, comes stacked – especially as they payout on only 2 symbol wins.
And unlike casino games like the Aloha Cluster Pays slot, you don’t have to sacrifice your earnings to a volcano god for Leonidas to show up. We’ve had wins of over 50 times our bet in the base game, thanks to him.
Leonidas stands side by side with you as you prepare yourself to get into the heat of the real battle.
There is no doubt that Leonidas brings the big slot wins, but it’s just a little easier to do in the free spins.
Reasons being, when these are triggered, you get brilliant sounds and animations to give you a spine chilling testosterone injection. Then, all Sparta character symbols, from the King to the lowly soldier, will have a chance to turn into a sticky wild for the remainder of the free spins.
They line up, shield to shield, as a rain of arrows comes down to punish them. Most die, but the 1 to 3 symbols that don’t turn wild.
We’ve seen half the board full of wilds, and wins worthy of a Spartan king. Equally, you can just as easily lose this battle. But that blood pumping charge kicks in every single time.
The thing is, this Leonidas King of Spartans slot machine has been around for a while in brick and mortar casinos all over the world.
It might not be the most well known game in the world, but it’s certainly popular enough to have a following, especially if you’ve experienced all the glory this king can bestow on you.
So we knew this little gem would be worth playing the moment we loaded it. You just have to decide whether you can stand the heat of the battle, or you need something a little less dangerous – The Zeus slot perhaps?

Wild Symbol: The purple wild symbol replaces all other symbols on the board except bonus.
Stacked Leonidas Feature: Not sure it can be called a feature, but when the wins are as heroic as these, it's worth mentioning that the highest paying symbol on the board can come stacked.
Protect Our Queen Free Spins: When Leonidas' queen falls on reel 3 and 5 you trigger 5 free spins. You then get one spin to win an additional:
The main feature of these free spins is that all Spartan soldier symbols, 3 of them including Leonidas, can turn wild and stay wild for the remainder of the free spins.
After every spin, as much as 1 to 3 Spartans will turn wild. It's why getting more free spins is so crucial to getting a screen full of wilds.
And why the Leonidas stacked wild feature is more lucrative than ever.
This Leonidas King of The Spartans mobile slot has plenty to recommend it, though for us it's the fact that the main feature, those stacked symbols, can come at any point.
It's not a forgiving game however, and you can be reduced to a crumpling heap as often, maybe more often, than you walk away in glory, but there's something thrilling about it none the less.
If the greek theme doesn't appeal, the Vikings Go Wild slot by Yggdrasil Gaming have a very similar free spins bonus feature, but not quite the blood and guts of this beautiful video slot machine.
