The familiarity of the features arrangement didn’t take anything away from its efficacy.
Above each reel are two circular gaps that are the game’s coin meters. When I landed a gold coin symbol, it will be collected to the coin meter and once both coin meter slots are filled, the reel will transform into a Wild Reel for 2 consecutive spins
Landing 3 scatters on reels 1, 3, and 5 got me into the free spins round. The game presented me with 3 options, namely 2 free spins with 3 Wild Reels, 8 free spins with 2 Wild Reels, or 25 free spins with 1 Wild Reel. When 3 or more scatters appeared while the feature was active I retriggered the bonus round with the option that I initially chose.
Augustus slot may be a clone, but it is a copy of a winning formula with a compelling theme and balanced gameplay. I was captivated by the sweeping spectacle of ancient Rome that served as an impressive backdrop to the reels that held vividly illustrated symbols.
I’ve played Age of Conquest and I instantly recognised that these two game’s mechanics and features were virtually identical and worked in the same way, delivering a steady stream of moderate wins during the base game where the most I could win was 1000x my bet, which translates to $200 000 for converting all the reels into Wild Reels. I also appreciated the bonus game choices which allowed me to customise the experience to my preference. As far as casual, rewarding slot experiences themed around the opulence of Ancient Rome experience go, this is a good example of gameplay done right.
