Chariots of Fire is a game that takes the player to Ancient Rome, to a time where you could see soldiers riding war chariots, while being dressed in armor. Rival Gaming is the one that is behind this 2017 slot machine.
In the case of Chariots of Fire, 25 active lines are active at most for each round where you’re spinning the 5x3 reels. You can count on wins of up to $3,000, plus you will have free spins, scatters, multipliers and expanding wilds inside, to help you have more fun and win more money in the long run.
Chariots of Fire Betting and Prizes
You get full control over the way the bet is designed. It’s the sort of game where you can choose the value of coins, their number, as well as the number of active lines. With up to 25 active lines to choose from, with 10 coins per line and denominations of up to $0.25, the complete range of the wagers in Chariots of Fire varies between $0.01 and $62.50.
The base game has a jackpot of 600x, turned into a prize of $1,500 at most. For the free spins, that amount doubles, so you can win $3,000 there. I’m not crazy about the RTP of the game, even though it’s not terribly low at 94.89%.
One of the major symbols in Chariots of Fire has been the expanding wild, the one where you can see the SPQR flag of the Roman legion. These are powerful features, since they cover entire reels, and so you don’t get them everywhere. Only the 1st, 3rd and 5th reels are going to have expanding wilds on them. The expansion occurs only if the wild symbol can be used in the formation of a new combination as a result.
Players will find the Roman Soldier symbol to be very important to the game as well, since this one is capable of delivering 8 free spins where all wins are enhanced with the help of 2x multipliers. It’s sufficient to get three or more Roman Soldiers scattered on the reels, to activate these spins. Rewards that vary between 1x and 25x the total bet of the spin are also mentioned. An added feature is the one where you get the 3rd reel entirely wild during the free spins.
While you’re going through your free spins, there is a chance to trigger Roman Victory free spins, though only two of them. Once again, there are 2x multipliers present here, but now both the 1st and the 3rd reels are entirely wilds, basically ensuring that you get 25 winning combinations of 3+ symbols each spin. Though difficult to get to, this is also one of the more fun features offered by the game.
Theme & Design
Chariots of Fire has a theme that relates to Ancient Rome and its warriors. A large temple which has crowds of people in the front is used to support the 5 reels. On them, there are symbols with emperors, Roman women, soldiers, helmets, horses, crossbows and shields. Golden style poker cards are shown as well. I’m not a big fan of the design of the slot, but it’s not horrible to look at.
Chariots of Fire will deliver a good set of features, particularly those Victory Spins if you can get them, but fails to offer a great design.
