Glory of Rome Slots

Glory-of-RomeGlory of Rome is one of the many slot machines available out there, to have an Ancient Rome theme. Microgaming did a good job with it though, so I wouldn’t call it just another Roman slot machine. The quality of the graphics is one thing that it has going for it, along with the features offered, or the top jackpot.

The 20 paylines of Glory of Rome are going to reward you with huge prizes, of up to $50,000. A very special bonus game can be triggered with the scatter’s help, with cash prizes, free spins and multipliers in it. A wild symbol is also included.

Features of Glory of Rome

Playing Glory of Rome will give you the opportunity to get access to bonus games that award free spins with multipliers, to scatter symbols and to wilds that can be incredibly profitable.

The Roman Emperor is the one to award the big prize, and he is the wild at the same time. Despite the laurel crown on his head, he doesn’t look like a classic Caesar, though this is what the paytable calls him. If you happen to get between two and five Emperors on the same win line, with the symbols being arranged from the left and going to the right side, you can win between 10 and 5,000 times the line bet. Besides offering the top jackpot, the wild is useful even when it doesn’t create its own combinations. It is capable of substituting for any other symbol, with the exception of the scatter.


The Gladiator is also a big part of Glory of Rome. This is a scatter symbol, a feature that gets its name from the symbol’s ability to appear in random locations on the reels, scattered around, and yet it will still award prizes. It doesn’t have to create regular combinations, and that’s its biggest strength. The simple presence of two to five Gladiators will trigger a payout that multiplies the total bet by 2x to 100x.

Bonus Game With Free Spins

The appearance of 3+ Gladiators will trigger the aforementioned prize, plus a bonus game and 8 free spins.


During this bonus game, you get 9 shields on the screen, and you pick four of them. With each choice, you get either 8 additional spins, or a cash prize which is at 10x the bet. Once the bonus feature ends, the free spins begin.

The prizes obtained during free spins are doubled, the slot offering a 2x multiplier for the duration of this feature. The free spins can’t be triggered again while they are running.

Betting options and jackpots

Even though there are only 20 lines, the bets of the game are very high, reaching $10 per line, or $200 total. The line bet is composed of 20 coins or less, with the denomination being up to $0.50.

With big wagers, come bigger than average payouts. In this case, that means a 5,000x jackpot, with up to $50,000 being offered to players that bet up to $10 per line.

Design and symbols

The most unusual part about this design is the clear blue sky that is visible behind the reels. It’s a very light and beautiful blue that you see there, unusual since marble is a more common choice for a background in Ancient Rome slots. On the reels, you will discover Roman emperors, beautiful women, gladiators, chariots and lions. The playing cards have one unusual bit about them, the use of Roman numbers instead of Arabic ones (X and IX, instead of 10 and 9).

Symbols: Caesar (5,000x, wild), Gladiator (100x the wager, scatter), Woman (1,500x), Chariot (500x), Lion (250x), Helmet (250x), Ace (150x), King (150x), Queen (125x), Jack (125x), X (100x) and IX (100x).
