The Colosseum in Rome is today a popular landmark in the city. In ancient Roman times it was used as a form of public entertainment, with gladiator fights and wild animal hunts. There were battles between animals and human fighters, and it is estimated that in those times thousands of people and animals were killed.
The Call of the Colosseum is a five reel game and has twenty five pay lines, and is released by NextGen. The Call of the Colosseum is based on this period of Roman history, but the game will not require any loss of life. The game does give you a idea of the events that took place in the Colosseum, and the background and all the symbols are realistic and detailed, and all refer to those events. There are many Colosseum related symbols, like wild Tigers, Gladiator helmets and Roman sandals, Shields and Spears, Bags of Coins and the obligatory beautiful Lady, as well as the Emperor. This Julius Caesar like figure watches the crowd and the activity in the Colosseum from his royal perch. If you are lucky enough to find five of the Ladies on the reels you will win a great prize of five thousand coins in the real money slots game.
Wilds and Scatters
The wild symbol is the Emperor, and as such can replace any other symbol in the Call of the Colosseum to help form winning combinations, apart from the Scatter. The Shield is the Scatter symbol, and only appears on reels two, three and four.
Three or more of the Scatter symbols appearing anywhere on the reels will give you entrance to the Free Spins bonus round. You will be given ten free spins at once, and all wins you make during these free spin rounds will be doubled. Another interesting and amusing animation will be the Emperor appearing on the reels during this bonus round, and will give you a thumbs up, or thumbs down signal. If you are lucky enough to receive a thumbs up sign from the Emperor, you will be awarded an additional three free spins. The free spins bonus round cannot, however, be retriggered.
A Wide Variety of Bets Possible
Call of the Colosseum gives all players a wide variety of betting budgets to choose from. The twenty five pay lines are adjustable, and all pay line wins are multiplied by the amount that is staked per line. All twenty five pay lines can be played for a small amount, but if you enjoy wagering at the maximum amount, and you happen to land five of the beautiful Ladies on an active pay line, you could end up with a huge win of up to twenty thousand coins.
Like most NextGen slot games, the Call of the Colosseum also offers players a Gamble feature, during which you can try to double your winnings by guessing correctly the colour of the next playing card that is drawn. You can also try another guess, and see if you can predict the suit of that card. Another correct guess will get all your winnings quadrupled.
Call of the Colosseum is a fairly simple and easy game to play, and the realistically and colourfully designed symbols and the interesting Roman background will keep your attention engaged.
