Spartan King is a brand-new online slot game from the fantastic slot developers Pragmatic Play. Pragmatic Play has been around since 2015 and since then has gone on to launch many successful online slot games. Popular Pragmatic titles include Return of the Dead, Emerald King, Dragon Tiger, and 5 Lions Dance. Spartan King was released on the 2nd December 2020 and takes players back to ancient Greece to help other Spartans protect their King in battle. The prize for helping the Spartans win the battle is riches beyond your wildest dreams.
The game is played across a 5×4 set of reels with 40 active pay lines. Bets start from as little as £0.20 per spin up to a maximum of £100 spin for anyone looking to maximise the potential returns. The gameplay is straightforward, making this an excellent game for beginner slots players. It includes wild symbols, bonus symbols and free spins. The maximum win in the game is a pretty impressive sum worth 7480x your stake.
Graphics and Theme
The graphics can be summed up as colourful, vibrant and crisp. Pragmatic Play has done an excellent job at creating a game screen that draws you in and keeps you concentrating on the reels, which is handy when settling in for a long slots session. The backdrop to the reels is a waterfall located on a lake high up in the mountains. The reels are encased in a stone temple that matches the style of the ancient Greeks. The background to the symbols is a dark red which matches the colour of the Spartans uniforms.
The soundtrack is a slow tune made up with percussion instruments and violins. It’s better at relaxing you than building up a tense atmosphere that you might expect from a battle-themed slot. However, it’s pleasant and will help to keep you calm and concentrated as you hit spin. The reels spin with a quiet flickering noise and come to a stop one by one with a gentle thud. Winning combinations are awarded a simple and classic sounding arcade winning noise.
Spartan King symbols
The low paying symbols in the game are made up of playing card symbols Jack, Queen, King and Ace. Five of a kind aces are worth a maximum of £200 or 2x your stake. The high paying symbols include a decorative vase, a sword, a spartan helmet, a battleship, and a spartan soldier. The soldier is worth the most and will pay out a maximum of £750 for five of a kind or 7.5x your stake.
There is also a wild symbol that can substitute for any symbol except for the bonus symbol. The wild symbol is also the most valuable symbol in the game and is worth £1000 for five of a kind. Finally, there is a bonus symbol which will pay out 1x, 5x, and 20x your stake for 3, 4, or 5 bonus symbols that land simultaneously anywhere on your screen.
Spartan King free spins
The free spins are triggered by landing three or more bonus symbols. They can be retriggered if three or more bonus symbols land again during the bonus round. The number of free spins you are awarded depends on the number of bonus symbols landed:
- Three bonus symbols = eight free spins
- Four bonus symbols = ten free spins
- Five bonus symbols = 12 free spins
During the free spins round, 2×2 wilds can land anywhere on your screen and will multiply the total win of that spin by a random multiplier. The random multiplier can be 2x, 3x, 5x, 10x, or 25x your stake.
Game How to Play
The first thing you need to do is select a betting value between £0.20 per spin and £100 per spin. Once you have decided on that, you can then hit spin manually or use the autoplay feature to carry out up to 100 spins for you. The aim of the game is to land three or more matching symbols on a winning pay line. Spartan King is played on a 5×3 set of reels with 40 pay lines. The maximum win in the game can be achieved by landing multiple 2×2 wilds during the free spins round.
