Rome and Egypt is a historically based slot game, combining two of the greatest ancient empires of all time. This theme does actually work historically as the two empires did exist during the same time in history, but don’t go looking for more factually based information than that.
There are loads of both Roman and Egyptian themed slot games on the market, so combining the two was actually a pretty genius move on the part of Williams Interactive Software. Rome and Egypt is a well designed but pretty basic five reel forty payline slot game. It doesn’t have a massive amount of features, boasting only really a free spins round and two wild symbols.
Rome and Egypt is a low to medium variance slot, which means that small wins are pretty consistent, but big wins are pretty rare. Combine that fact with a pretty low minimum wager, and you have a nice game for novice players to start off with.
Rome and Egypt Historical Theme
The theme to this slot quite nicely combines artefacts and graphics from both the ancient empires. Behind the reels can be seen Roman mosaic work next to Egyptian brickwork. The reels themselves are a sandy desert colour with all the buttons at the bottom being in the familiar WMS gold and blue. The layout is simple, with the pay table on a different screen, and all info right at the player’s fingertips including a sliding Stake button. The graphics themselves are not bad, but are definitely not works of art.
Rome and Egypt Ancient Symbols
There are no base card symbols in the game, meaning that you can find quite a wide variety of different symbols on the reels of Rome and Egypt. Fruit such as grapes and plums represents the lower paying symbols. Of course the higher symbols are things like the Coliseum, a Roman Emperors Wreath and the Sphinx.
The Canadian casino games two wild symbols are Julius Caesar and Cleopatra. These two royals serve as both stacked wilds and scatter symbols that trigger the free spins round. They can substitute for all other symbols in the game except each other. Being stacked wilds they can occupy more than one space on the reels, and if you are lucky the entire reel.
Rome and Egypt’s Free Spins Round
The two royal symbols, Cleopatra and Caesar together launch the free spins round in Rome and Egypt. To do this you need to land both symbols on adjacent reels starting on the left hand side. The player can land up to five sets of these symbols, and will be rewarded with between five and fifty free spins. However, this being a low variance game, the chances of landing fifty free spins is quite low, but on the other hand the chances of landing ten or twenty free spins is quite high. During the free spins feature, should a player land two or more wilds on consecutive reels starting from reel one, you will be awarded with even more free spins. All wins accumulated during the free spins round are also doubled, which makes for some quite nice consistent winning.
