Main Features

  • Game Type: 5 reels and 40 paylines
  • Return to Player (RTP): 95.20%

The high paying symbols in the game are all related to the war machine behind the Roman empire: soldiers and their accessories will all appear on the reels. The low paying symbols are all based on playing cards. The background to the game is an incredibly well-drawn shot of the Roman army at battle.

The Wild Eagle Shield pays out the most of all the symbols: when you are able to get 5 on a payline at once you will take home 320 times your line bet.

The base game for Shields of Rome is extremely simple to understand. It doesn’t offer anything complicated, making it a great game for beginner players. The 40 paylines means that wins can be created quite often (the game is low variance) and this means players are kept interested over the long term.

The main feature in the base game is the wild symbol. Whenever the Wild Eagle Shield lands, it will mark the reel that it landed on. However, it won’t directly contribute to any wins at this point. The reel will stay marked for 10 spins: on the tenth spin, all of the marked reels will transform into wild symbols which can create a huge win. This is also where the maximum payout can be achieved if players manage to fill the whole reel with wild marks.

The free spins round is triggered by landing a Catapult scatter symbol on each of the middle 3 reels. This gives you the chance to pick from 4 different bonus spins games:

  • 1st choice - 15 spins and 5 wild marks per spin.
  • 2nd choice - 10 spins and 7 wild marks per spin
  • 3rd choice - 5 spins and 10 wild marks per spin
  • 4th choice - a random number of spins and a random number of wild marks.

This final option offers the potential for huge numbers of wins to be earned, but could also backfire and offer the minimum number of spins and wild marks. The Catapult scatter doesn’t appear during the bonus spins and, sadly, additional spins can therefore not be triggered.

Players can also just jump straight to the bonus spins round by paying. This awesome ‘buy’ feature will cost 90 times your total stake, but as we know, the potential payout could be significantly higher. You still get to select between the 4 bonus options.
