The times of the Roman Empire were a quite unique period in human history, and there are few other eras that have inspired so much literature and great movies altogether. And rightly so! The Roman Empire was big, rich, and lasted for over 1, 200 years, during which many historically important events took place. Now we will also find a pokie that pays a tribute to these years. Victorious is nothing but a pokie inspired by the Romans, and here we shall go through all its main features. Keep on reading, and then try a few free rounds over here to see what we’re talking about.
Victorious is a pokie with five reels and three rows, that is very NetEnt typical. However, this time we shall not come across the traditional paylines. The latter have been replaced by pay ways. This means that symbols do not have to line up on specific lines to give you profit. It is enough that these are displayed on adjacent reels, starting from the leftmost reel. Some winning combinations require at least three of the same symbols, while others will give payout with just two. Pay ways, also called winning ways, are not extremely common, although this is not the first pokie we’ve come across that uses this strategy. For example Thunderstruck II, by Microgaming, is another pokie that pays out using pay ways.
The symbols used in Victorious are also reminescent of the Roman Empire. Here you will find golden eagles, laurel wreaths, emperors, warriors, as well as the card symbols from 10 to A. All of them give different payout, and you can view this by clicking on the paytable. After a few rounds over here you will realise how these work. You will notice, for instance, that the Emperor is the symbol that gives out the biggest profit. When you get five of these on a pay way, you will be awarded with 1, 500 credits. You will also notice that two symbols are more important than the others.
The first symbol we shall discuss is the laurel wreath. Indeed this symbol was used to symbolise victory in battle, and it was used to crown commanders that were triumphant. Even nowadays, it is a sign of triumph, and this pokie is no exception. When you get at least three of these on a pay way you will get free spins at the casino’s expense. Three such symbols give you 15 free spins, four laurel wreaths are equal to 20 free spins, whereas five laurel wreaths will grant you with 25 free spins! So you will be earning money without spending anything. Isn’t this a nice victory over the casino?
The pokie also has a wild symbol, or joker, that will serve as a replacement for all the regular symbols to produce winning combintations. The wild symbol for victorious is displayed as a golden eagle. Should you get two of these on two of the first three reels, a profit will then be guaranteed. This is because the pokie works with the pay ways system and not paylines. Something which we haven’t told you yet is that there are a total of 243 pay ways that are possible when playing Victorious.
Earlier we mentioned that the Emperor can give a total of 1, 500 credits. The real value of these credits varies, as usual, depending on how big is your bet. You have the possibility of adjusting the bet amount by changing the bet level and the coin value. The latter ranges between €0. 01 and €0. 25. The bet level can reach a maximum of ten, and so every spin can cost as little as €0. 25 and as much as €125. Therefore, we believe that all of you can find a level that suits them best. Of course playing for €125 might sound a little bit risky, but believe us, profits will be huge!
Victorious also offers you an Automatic feature. By opting for this feature, you can decide to play a certain amount of spins automatically without having to click the spin button every time. You can also choose some more advanced settings where for instance, you make the wheels stop spinning once a certain amount is won. Other settings that can be adjusted are those for the sounds found at the lower left corner of the display.
As we stated previously, here you can play this pokie for free and so you can experiment a little bit with all the different settings. In our opinion the free spins are a nice feature that Victorious has to offer. We would have liked to have an integrated bonus round as we think that this could have had a very dramatic effect on the pokie given the theme. However, all in all we can say that this pokie is fine. After a while it will be quite simple to understand, and it can be an ideal way to make some money.
