Want to become a Roman centurion and battle in ancient Rome? Then join the Glorious Empire today!

This game revolves around ancient Roman times so you better put on some sandals and sharpen that sword before playing this game!

The main focus of the game is the myth and wonder of ancient Rome so expect to see some Roman soldiers, a beautiful princess, some helmets, shields, and a winged horse thrown in for good measure! Ancient Rome did form one of the largest empires in the world a long long time ago, so to call this empire “Glorious” would not be an understatement.

Special Features

The first thing worth mentioning is the Wild symbol and this is denoted by a lion’s head covering a golden shield. As per usual, it substitutes for all symbols except the Scatter symbol which is denoted by a Parthenon building. The Scatter symbol is the highest paying out symbol in the game and if you are lucky enough to land 5 Scattered symbols anywhere across then reels then you will win up to 4,000X your original bet!

If you manage to land 3 or more Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels then you will trigger the Free Games feature. The number of free games you are awarded depends on the number of Scatter symbols you land. For example, if you get 3 Scatter symbols then you will be given 7 free games whereas 5 Scatter symbols will give you 15 free games. The really cool thing about this feature is that Wilds become sticky so they are held in place the whole time you are playing the Free Games feature. There is scope for some huge payouts if you get a handful of sticky wilds here.

The last feature is the Gamble option. This is triggered when you form a winning combination on the reels and it involves guessing colours and suits of random playing cards. If you guess the colour correctly then your win is doubled but if you fancy taking a bit of a risk then try guessing the suit of the card and your win will be quadrupled! However, if you guess incorrectly then you will lose your money from that spin.

Theme and Graphics

The game is beautifully illustrated and ancient Rome really comes to life the moment the slot loads. The symbols are lovingly detailed and visually very impressive especially when you form a winning combination on the reels. The dusky backdrop and old buildings also add to the Roman theme wonderfully.

The music is fantastic and is of the epic variety. It is quite orchestral and compliments the game superbly.

Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots

The game has 40 paylines, a fine RTP of 96.92% and a maximum payout of 4,000 times your original stake.
