Aaahh the bygone days of Ancient Rome, when power-hungry emperors ruled half the known world and gladiators battled it out in huge arenas. If you fancy heading back to this exciting time in history, Inspired Gaming has got you covered. Developed in conjunction with NYX Games, this is a slot which packs a great visual punch along with some cool bonus features. Released in July 2015 Centurion has been an ever-popular addition to any site with a loyal following all these years.
The scene for Centurion slot is set at the height of the Roman empire with the background image of the Colosseum perfectly setting the tone and adding thrills to the gameplay along with some great sound FX. The mini games all come with their own separate Roman imagery such as the Prizes on Parade (see below), where shield carrying centurions stand in full dress producing a classically Roman image.
The in-game symbols continue with this setting as the reels are spun to show coins, helmets, sword and shields, chariots and colosseums – it is these symbols you must match to win along with J, Q, K, A. There is also the Centurion symbol in gold writing with a purple background, a regal colour in ancient Rome.
The slot is made up of a standard 5 reel, 3 row machine with up to 20 pay lines. The variance is medium so gamers should see frequent wins whilst the RTP (Return to Player) for Centurion is only 95.90%, whilst being nothing to get excited about for a modern slot title the range of bonus features on offer does somewhat make up for this. For example, during the base game the Wild symbol, in this case the Centurion tile upon getting 5 on a pay line can net you 500 times your initial stake. With the coin size ranging from 0.2 – 250 the max win available on Centurion is 125,000 respectively however the maximum pay-out is $/€/£250,000 so you can’t win more than that on a single spin.
There are a number of in-game features available to improve the individual gaming experience for example the auto play function can be set to speed up gameplay, whilst the stakes can be adjusted so you play at the level you find comfortable. Language options are also available so that everybody feels included as well as the ability to turn off the volume if it is needed. The question mark positioned in the top, right hand corner of the screen opens up the help menu if needed, this includes information on everything from ‘Getting started’ to ‘Auto-play’. Centurion is compatible across IOS and Android devices so you can take your heroic gladiator with you and fight any time, any place.
Along with exciting visuals, this is where the game score highly. There are a fabulous 6 bonus rounds to enjoy if you are lucky. First up is the aforementioned Wild which replaces standard symbols to form fresh winning combos in the base game. In addition, there are 4 bonus mini games to try out. These are triggered when you get 3 or more Centurion bonus symbols in the base game.
After this, a bonus wheel comes up on screen which players spin. You will then get the bonus mini game it lands on. These are:
To top all this bonus fun off, there is a Reel modifier round. When the Centurion appears on screen to blow his trumpet, this bonus begins, and you are taken into a series of mini games to enjoy. These include:
Avid slot enthusiasts may already recognise Centurion from bookmakers’ shops and casinos throughout the UK, you’ll be happy to know you are able to play it at home or on the move at Casino 77. As always keep an eye on the casino promotions page for the best bonus and free spin deals online.
