Everyone looks back on the Roman Empire and that section of history with varying degrees of tolerance and satisfaction, but one thing is for sure – that era was full of gladiators who were willing to march to the end of the Earth in search of the victory.
The true essence of that belief is something that NetEnt attempts to capture in their Victorious slot game, and today, we’re going to try and see whether or not they’ve pulled it off.
Building the sense of atmosphere in the Victorious slot game is hardly going to be a difficult task, and while it may not always feel particularly immersive, NetEnt definitely knows how to make it feel fun. The standard 5×3 reel layout is spread across the board nicely and gives room for the symbols to shine, and with 243 ways to win, there’s not a whole lot to get upset about based on the first impression.
The standard playcards are on display as the symbols alongside a string of figures from the Roman era, all of whom are presented as larger than life characters.
The return to player (RTP) percentage doesn’t really care about the nature of the slot or the theming, because one way or the other, they’re going to come up with a number that represents what you’re likely to come away with from a financial point of view. The same is true for the Victorious slot game with the reported RTP figure coming in at between 96.88% and 96.90%. Based on the trajectory of the industry we’d suggest that is slightly above average, and when you combine that with the volatility being high, those who walk away as victors truly do get a grand feeling of success.
You can play from a minimum stake of $/€/£0.25 to a maximum of $/€/£125, which sets you up nicely for possible winnings of 15,000 coins – if you’re feeling lucky.
The design work seems to have been done in a cartoon strip kind of manner, and to be blunt, we absolutely love it. It breaks free from the attention to detail that we’ve come to know with slots that are themed in this way, and the gold colour scheme works perfectly with the epic film music soundtrack that runs throughout the gameplay.
The Golden Eagle wild symbol is one to look out for as it can replace any and all other symbols outside of the Golden Wreath scatter, and if you get three or more of those, you could land between 15 and 25 free spins.
The Victorious slot game is fast, it’s crazy and it’s a little bit wacky, and that’s the sort of combination that leads to a winner in our book. It definitely doesn’t pretend to be conventional and NetEnt makes it clear from the word go that you’ll be in for a wild ride, which is the sort of honesty you need in this industry.
The conservative few amongst you may not be fans, but high rollers will absolutely love it.
