The simplicity of casino slot machines prompted online gaming software companies to explore other areas that can be made unique to make gameplay more exciting, and one of the most changed is themes. Microgaming is one of the software companies that have managed to perfect the art of theme exploration, and among the slots that showcase its prowess in the field is Call of the Colosseum.
Call of the Colosseum Slot does not bear the most impressive graphics and animations in comparison to other releases made by Microgaming, but its use of a highly-demanded theme accounts for its popularity. The game is based on the ancient Roman gladiator wars conducted on the arena, which have inspired a lot more slot games and films as well. Gameplay is conducted on five reels and three rows that are sheer white with twenty-five play lines running across. In the backdrop sits pillars of marble that are carved into beautiful designs at the top. No music plays in the background aside from some tunes when the reels are in motion.
Call of the Colosseum maintains the same gameplay procedure as that of all other games in the category by Microgaming. The gambler is required to:
- Adjust the number of play lines to remain active from as little as one to as many as all twenty-five;
- Choose a coin value from point zero one to as much as twenty-five credits
- Start the game using the Spin button
- Spin the reels up to one hundred consecutive times using the Autoplay button.
Three or more icon combinations on a win line trigger a payout. The lady is the highest paying icon with a jackpots prize of five thousand credits for five of them. The tiger comes in next, awarding as much as two thousand credits. All other characters pay players as follows for five of them:
- Colosseum – two hundred
- Chariot – two hundred
- Golden shield – one hundred and fifty
- Bag of coins – one hundred and fifty
- Sandals – one hundred and fifty
- Coins – one hundred
- Grapes – one hundred
The emperor icon is the wild and takes the place of all other symbols. The shield is the scatter, and it is used to trigger a free spins bonus.
Call of the Colosseum is provided in free and real money variations in Microgaming casinos online with an RTP rate of 95.2 percent.
