The Call of the Colosseum Slot Game transports to you back in time to ancient Rome. As the name suggests, the game is themed around the dangerous combat that used to occur in the impressive colosseum arenas, which translates to the slot design. You’ll see two large columns with ornate detailing at either side of the reels, while the blue sky sits above, highlighting the fact that you’re in an open-air arena.
The themeing continues with the symbols, including coins, sandals, a bunch of grapes, shields and helmets, a chariot, a tiger, a female and the Colosseum itself. There’s also an emperor who acts as the game’s wild, appearing only on the second, third and fourth reels. The scarred shield represents the scatter.
The Call of the Colosseum Slot Game’s minimum bet is set at just $/€/£00.01 per spin, whilst the highest bet is restricted to $/€/£125.00 per spin. Whether you’re a newbie looking for ‘penny slots’ to try out, or a high roller looking for reasonably high stake options, you’ll enjoy this game.
Trigger the free spins round by landing at least three scatter symbols in any position across the reels. You’ll initially receive ten free spins, and all resulting wins will be doubled. This is a little different to usual free spins rounds, as each time the emperor wild lands, he’ll give you either a ‘thumbs up’ or ‘thumbs down’. The first of the two options will result in a reward of between one and three additional free spins.
As with many of NextGen Gaming’s slots, the Call of the Colosseum Slot Game offers the chance to gamble your prize on any winning spin. All you need to do is select the ‘gamble’ button at the bottom of the reels, and guess the next card’s colour and suit. If you guess the colour correctly, you’ll double your prize pot. Guess both the colour and suit correctly to quadruple your winnings. If you guess incorrectly, you’ll lose it all, so be careful and use this feature at your own risk.
The Call of the Colosseum Slot Game is a decent video slot. The adjustable paylines offer the chance for new slot players to experience the game at low stakes, and even just one payline is enough to trigger the free spins bonus round if you manage to land the scatter. The graphics and animations are great, as is the accompanying soundtrack.
