Luxury Rome HD Slots
For regular players of iSoftBet games the title of this game might cause you to believe this is simply a sequel to the popular online slot game Luxury Rome. In terms of the ancient Roman theme it is indeed a spiritual successor but this is more of a full remake really than a direct follow up. iSB have taken a game idea which had already proven popular for them in the past and gone all out to take it right up there with the top online slot offerings in terms of device compatibility, modern 3D graphics and gameplay features.
Slip on your toga and envelop yourself in the luxury and riches of ancient Rome, join the iconic characters of a female pharaoh and roman emperor as they spin imperiously round the games 5×3 reel display, does a conquering win await or will you fall like the empire itself?
As an experienced video gamer I know well that a games interface, how it loads and how the music fits in can be just as much an influence on enjoyment as the gameplay and features. Broadly speaking I feel the same about slot games and really enjoy a game that feels well put together in all ways, I am a keen fan of iSoftBets officially licensed Rambo slot for exactly this reason.
Luxury Rome HD nails the theme right at the opening screen, a Roman stone background, laurel wreath frames for the game name and iconic Empire characters welcome you in. I also like how it displays the two main bonus features to you on the next screen before you enter the game and that you can disable that for future game loads with one click.
The music too is right on key, there is a little ambient background noise which seems to be the sound of a Roman market, not intrusive but definitely when combined with the light lute playing it adds to an enveloping ambience. On the subject of nice touches – The music volume can be adjusted by level for effects/music/overall which although a common option on video games is rare in even the latest online slots.
The game is kept simple enough to play with uncluttered symbolism, the stock A-9 playing card icons are wrapped in laurel for low value prizes and 7x game themed higher value Roman symbols from an Amphora to twin Gladius feature above them, with what would appear to be renderings of Cleopatra and Mark Anthony forming the most lucrative of all.
The gold Eagle of a Roman Legion forms the slots single Wild and the ruins of the famous coliseum are used as the scatter symbol. The symbols are all very well rendered and give the game that high end quality feel, even the pay-lines themselves are denoted by Roman numerals.
Does the gameplay stand up or this just a pretty game? I’ll leave each to their own to decide on that by giving you a rundown of what is on offer on this 5 reel video slots 9 active pay-lines.
Starting with the basics – you can bet a max of 1 coin per line, coin values range from 0.01 to 1 credit so max bet is 9 credits total – not one for the high rollers and there is no progressive jackpot available here though the max win is a healthy 1800 credits from the scatter combinations and up to 4950 in the bonus round – fairly large pay-outs when you consider the max bet.
The imperial Eagle Wild replaces all symbols except for the bonus icons and the coliseum scatter, which in this game serves as a multiplier rather than a bonus trigger as it would in most modern slots. 2x scatters anywhere on the reels doubles your line bet and a full row of 5x grants you an epic 200x your wager!
The last thing to talk about is the games two game bonus features, Instant Bonus and Wheel Bonus. Instant bonus golden horse symbols of either 3, 4 or 5 anywhere on the reels give you a scratch style instant win of free spins or multipliers. The Legionnaire helmet wheel bonus symbol however is where the true Roman victory awaits, as 3 or more of these symbols move you onto a spinning wheel where two Roman senator like figures will grant you up to 4950 extra coins!
iSoftBet seem to get better and better with every new game release, Luxury Rome HD emphasises its graphical intentions in the title and doesn’t disappoint in the delivery. The gameplay features are wide and varied providing plenty of entertainment. I can forgive the lack of a gamble feature however the 9 pay-lines do feel out of place on a game this well produced and the max bet is very low, it really may have benefited a few more lines and a little more bet adjustment to appeal to a larger player base.
