Riches Of Rome Slots

Riches-Of-RomeA game inspired by Ancient Rome is not exactly considered rare these days, and a few examples of similar titles are present even among the ones that WMS has designed. Riches of Rome mostly takes aim at the riches of this ancient empire though, instead of looking at its gladiators or at the conquests they made. The result is at least a decent title in most regards, with graphics that are above average, but not among the best.

5 reels and 30 bet lines are used in Riches of Rome, a game which also offers bonus features, progressive jackpots, free spins, expanding wilds and scatters. Besides the progressives, there are also fixed prizes which only reach a value of $120.

Features of Riches Of Rome

The features in Riches of Rome will come with expanding wilds, with two scatter symbols, free spins and a feature which can bring you one of the five available progressive jackpots.

Given the capacity of the wild to expand on the entire reel, it’s going to be quite a useful symbol to have around. Limitations are in place unfortunately, like the fact that it shows up on the three middle reels only, meaning the 2nd, 3rd and 4th. It will not substitute for either of the scatter symbols which Riches in Rome has, so it can only assist you when trying to form regular combinations. As for the ability it has to expand, this will only happen if it results in a pay being created. If not, you will get only the one symbol occupied by the wild.

The first of the scatter symbols would be the one with the Gold Coin. This symbol presents you with payouts of 25x and 50x the total bet, for four or five symbols scattered on the reels.

Free Games Feature

Access to the slot’s round with 8 free spins is obtained when there are a minimum of three scattered Gold Coins on the reels. Each of those spins come with one wild reel, which is chosen at random from the five available. While the free spins are used, the wild continues to be able to expand and is available on the same three reels.


Get those 3+ Gold Coins again, and you will obtain an additional 8 free spins.

Life of Luxury

The other major feature in Riches of Rome is the one capable of triggering the progressive jackpots. You need the logo of Life of Luxury as a scatter, but you only need it on the 5th reel.

Once the feature has been triggered, the reels of Life of Luxury load up, and you get 10 spins on them, with the chance of getting a Picking Bonus if a gem symbol makes an appearance. You get either a progressive jackpot or a regular prize from this picking game. If you’ve been using the maximum bet that round, then you’re guaranteed to get a progressive jackpot. You’re not given the same guarantee that it will be one of those with bigger prizes though.

Betting options and jackpots

The slot is very cheap to play, needing between $0.30 and $2.40, while the line bet varies from $0.01 to $0.08.

The game does give you up to 1,500 coins or 50x the total bet, and in both cases that means up to $120 cash. It’s a game with low requirements, and also low prizes, but at least you have a hope of winning that progressive jackpot.

Design and symbols

The design of the game is adequate for the job, with 100% themed symbols, no boring cards here, but with the drawing style not being good enough for the second decade of the 21st century. The symbols will sometimes show you things that were part of the life of the Roman people, while other times you get things like treasure chests made out of gold. The riches of Rome are not a common sight in this case.


Symbols: Gold Coin (50x total bet, scatter), Scroll (wild), Life of Luxury (bonus), Caesar Shield (1,500 coins), Lady (750 coins), Jewelry Chest (500 coins), Coliseum (250 coins), Chariot (250 coins), Caesar Statue (150 coins), Helmet (150 coins), Grape (100 coins), Amphora (100 coins) and Laurels (100 coins).


Is It Worth Playing?

It’s one of the many Roman themed slot machines, and definitely not one of the better looking ones, but it should make up for it with the big progressive jackpots and the very low wager requirements.

The Riches Of Rome slot machine is offered through the WMS platform, so if you want to play it for real or just to practice, look out for casinos that use it.
