Enter the Spartans’ most important battle in Blueprint Gaming’s latest release. With 5 reels, 3 rows, and 20 paylines, Fortunes of Sparta might seem standard but is so much more than that. With a very exciting theme and features that complete it greatly, the game sounds quite promising. With the volatility set at high and a satisfying RTP, the payouts do as well.
The provider chose a great theme for the game, as it involves you going into battle mode, so get ready to get hungry for the wins. The game offers some pretty great graphics and interesting symbols, while also being able to provide some surprising payouts. It should be a delight to play for most of us.
The design of the game is simple but detailed at the same time. The game starts off with a warrior greeting you to the battlefield with the iconic line: „This is Sparta!" from the movie 300. A huge fortress can be seen in the background with very tall walls. Fire, ash, and smoke are everywhere making the battle seem more real. The soundtrack is very calming and majestic, with some heroic sound effects added when the reels are spun and the wins occur.
The symbols are placed on concrete reels surrounded with some gold detailed pillars. The lower-paid ones include pots, swords, shields, armors, and helmets. The higher-paid ones include ships, female characters, and some warriors. The wild symbol appears in the form of a temple and the scatter as a bonus omega sign symbolizing the god of war.
This is a highly volatile game that goes great in combination with the theme. The betting range is quite wide as well with the minimum bet set at 0,25, and the maximum at 125 coins per spin. Players are mostly going to be satisfied with the payouts as they can go up to 10,000 times the stake. The game has a 97,04% RTP which is above average and very tempting.
The features of the game provide you with some real action on the reels. They are very creative and quite beneficial when it comes to forming some great wins. As already mentioned, the game offers us a wild symbol that replaces all other symbols of the game, except the scatter symbol. But not only that, when it lands on a reel it expands to cover it entirely. The Spartan then greets you yet another time, the winning symbols are locked in, and a series of re-spins occurs. They go on as long as winning symbols keep appearing on them, in the end, all the wins are added together for a huge payout hopefully.
The possibilities you get when it comes to the Free Spins feature will blow your mind. As soon as you land at least 3 scatter symbols anywhere on the reels, they will get locked in place and another series of re-spins occurs, and last until no scatter symbols land on the reels or they are covered completely. This means that for landing 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8-9, or 10+ scatter symbols you are awarded 8, 10, 12, 15, 20, 50, or up to 100 free spins. Another great this about it is that the wild symbol gets placed on the middle reel at the start and is locked in for the duration of the free spins.
The game has definitely proven itself to be one of the better ones out there. The provider did a great job at creating something simple, but still telling a story. The theme itself is nothing new to see, but the game also has its own charm compared to the others. The features have to be the star of the show, especially the free spins mode. The game definitely has amazing winning potential and is worth giving a try too.
