Sword Of Ares Slot Review – Pragmatic Play
Time for another Pragmatic Play slot announcement, I am still impressed how the studio releases multiple games each month. I recently reviewed the game titled ‘Big Bass Bonanza Keeping It Reel’, which has a max win capped at 10,000x and a Free Spins feature with special Fish Symbols. Today we are learning all about ‘Sword Of Ares’, which is set to release October 27th across all sites!
This slot has a theme based around the Greek God Of War, who has gathered his troops to search for glorious rewards. The game background shows off Ancient Greece, with the God on the right side of the reel set and marble arches. Visuals are well detailed and vibrant.
Sword Of Ares has a setup of 6 reels by 5 rows, this includes 20 set pay lines. This slot is high variance with a set RTP of 96.40% and a max win capped at 10,000x. You can bet from £0.20 to £100.
Sword Of Ares Pay Table & Symbols
There are 11 symbols in total, this includes 5 low paying symbols. These are represented by Purple, Blue, Green, Red and Cyan shaped gems. There are also 4 premium symbols, these are represented by swords, shields, carriages, and helmets. In addition to these regular symbols is a scatter symbol and bomb symbol. The highest paying symbol is the helmet premium, which pays 20x for clusters of 12 to 30. Bomb Symbols are present on all reels and can hit randomly during spins.
Sword Of Ares Features
The Tumble Feature is always active, meaning all symbols part of winning combinations. Remaining symbols fall to the bottom of the reel set and new symbols will drop to fill any empty positions. Tumbling will continue until no more winning combinations appear as a result of a tumble.
There is a meter which contains 3 Locked Multiplier Values in the base game and 6 Locked Multiplier Values during the Free Spins feature. After every spin and all tumbles the number of winning symbols and any exploded symbols is collected. At certain thresholds of collected symbols multipliers from the top unlock. At the end of all tumbles the total win of the tumble is multiplied by the highest multiplier unlocked. As follows;
1st Multiplier – Random multiplier of 2x, 3x or 4x. Unlocks after 20 symbols.
2nd Multiplier – Random multiplier of 5x, 6x, 7x or 8x. Unlocks after 50 symbols.
3rd Multiplier – Random multiplier of 9x, 10x, 11x, 12x, 13x, 14x or 15x.
Whenever one or more Bomb Symbols hit they remain on the reel set until there are no more winning combinations possible. These symbols will then explode and remove all symbols on the reel set in a horizontal, vertical or X pattern. Removed symbols will be added to the Multiplier Collection Meter and new symbols will fall. In the base game Bomb Symbols explode only if at least one tumble has occurred.
Landing 4 or more scatter symbols during a base game spin will trigger the Free Spins Feature. You can also purchase this feature for 100x your chosen stake. Awarding 15 Free Spins during spins the Multiplier Meter has 6 progressively higher values. There are 6 Multiplier values from the meter, these are;
Overall, I think this slot is perfect for people who love high variance and progressive mechanics. With a max win capped at 10,000x and a Free Spins feature with multipliers up to 500x. Be sure to try out the game for yourself on release and check out our exclusive casino offers.
