Developed by the Las Vegas-based Spin Play Games for the Microgaming platform, Roman Power is a five-reel, three-row slot based on one of the world’s greatest ancient empires. The studio responsible for this 20-payline effort puts a heavy emphasis on math in their games, naturally setting some high expectations for this one.
Unlike other titles with this theme, the colonnaded structure that makes up Roman Power’s grid is more akin to Caesar’s Palace than something you would find Zack Snyder kicking Persians around. That’s rather fitting - it’s a slot game, after all. But is it a good one? Let’s take a look at how Roman Power looks, feels and rewards its players.
To dress up the math model Spin Play Games prides themselves so strongly on, the developers have given Roman Power a reasonably attractive theme that reflects the name of the slot. Surrounding the aforementioned grid is a hazy evening view of an empty ocean. Fortunately, the slot itself is livelier, with plenty of war-ready animations to catch your eye.
The symbols, which include swords, helmets, letters and chest plates, are well-drawn and consistent, doing a good job at giving life to an otherwise muddy color palette. Overall, the theme and design can best be described as functional. What you’ll likely remember most is the soundtrack, which helps to create a more atmospherically enhanced experience.
To try your luck on Roman Power costs $0.02 per payline for a total minimum investment of 20 cents. If your pockets go a little deeper, you can bring that figure up to a maximum of $50 per spin. You’ll have no issues with the RTP (return to player) here, which sits at a relatively high 96.18% that’s paired to a 15.69% hit frequency rate.
Those numbers add up to make Roman Power a high volatility game. Therefore, if you can relate to the hardened nature of the grizzled Centurions that rear their heads as the reels spin away, you will find Roman Power sufficiently exciting.
Of course, it’s the features of the game that are really there to get your heart pumping. With this one, you’ll want to look out for the Hero Wild, which plays the role of substituting other symbols, thus increasing your chances of landing a winning combination. Said wild can also expand to cover a full reel with a fun animation to make sure you noticed.
Another feature is simply the plural form of the Hero Wild, which is self-explanatory. You’ll also find Power Multipliers here. They occur whenever the aforementioned wild feature appears, activating a random multiplier of either two, three, five, seven up to ten times the total win.
As you can imagine, the potential for a generous payout is very real here. In fact, the maximum potential is exactly 4,000 times the total stake, though you’ll have to have both of the above features working in conjunction with stacked reels to make it happen.
Nothing really holds Roman Power back from being worth a spin. If you enjoy the theme, be sure to try it out.
