Spartan King slot is a December 3rd 2020 release from Pragmatic Play. Boasting a max win potential of over 7,480x and up to a 25x multiplier in the free spins bonus round there’s clearly some potential for this high volatility slot to deliver some big payouts. The setup is reasoanably basic with 5 reels and 4 rows making up 40 paylines. There’s one base game modifier in the form of a 2×2 Wild symbol and this comes into play with a multiplier attached in the free spins bonus. Let’s take a deeper look and see whether spartan King slot is an offering worthy of Leonidas himself or whether it’s more of an Ephialtes.
Value for Money
Although we love the high RTP at 96.6% Spartan King slot feels a bit too basic and lacking in base game modifiers or anything to really make the bonus round stand out. It’s not a bad game and capable of delivering some big wins but you might find that you become bored quite quickly when compared to some other offers from Pragmatic Play.
Spartan King Slot Stats
December 3rd 2020
2×2 Wild Symbols
During the base game on any spin you may find that there are one or more 2×2 Wild symbols landing on the reels. Get these to connect together and you can really increase the probability of racking up some big winning combos. The Wild symbols come in the form of a Spartan Shield which is peppered with arrows. There are also regular Wild symbols which can land during the base game and bonus round which are represented by a Spartan King, probably meant to be Leonidas, though he doesn’t look too much like Gerard Butler so it’s hard to say if it’s the legendary king himself or not, but we presume so.
Free Spins Bonus
Land 3, 4 or 5 Bonus Scatter symbols to get the free spins round to trigger. Here you get 8, 10 or 12 free spins respectively for the increasing number of Scatters landed and they pay 1x, 5x and 20x your stake too.
During the free spins bonus you’ll find that the 2×2 Wild Shield symbols come with anything from a 2x, 3x, 5x, 10x or even a 25x multiplier attached to them. Again you can get more than one of these symbols landing in any given spin.
The free spins can be retriggered by landing 3 or more Scatter symbols.
The reels of Spartan King slot are framed by decorated columns and a stone roof and base.The background looks out from the shore to the sea with a glowing orange sunset. When you get to the free spins round a hail of arrows will fly across the screen taking you to a new scene as the background changes to a battle and you can see Spartan Warriors with spears in their hands raised up above their heads. It’s nicely designed and the music to accompany things blends well with the game.
Symbols consist of lower paying Jacks, Queens, Kings and Aces. Premium symbols are a sword, a Spartan helmet, a Spartan ship and a Spartan Warrior who pays 7.5x for 5 of a kind.
The normal Wild symbol is the Spartan King himself and appears only on reels 2, 3, 4, and 5. He can subsitutute for any symbol apart from the Scatters.
The 2×2 Wild symbols are Spartan Shields which become animated being struck with a number of arrows.
Scatter symbols say “Bonus” on them and are red scrolls with yellow edges.
