An Ancient Greek Themed Slot Featuring Super-Hot Re-Spins and Free Spins
Plataea was an ancient Greek city until it was destroyed in the Peloponnesian War by Thebes and Sparta in 427 BC. The city is best known for the Battle of Plataea in 479 BC, fought between an alliance of Greek states and the Persian Empire, led by Xerxes I.
This slot is based around the battle with symbols including shields, swords, warriors and war ships. With Greek temples in view and the atmospheric soundtrack throughout the game, you’ll certainly feel like you’re involved in an epic slot.
Here are the key features to expect when you spin:

During both the base game and the free spins feature you’ll find a ‘shield’ symbol appearing on the reels. The shield is golden and hosts a blood red ‘V’ sign, perhaps signifying victory. These reveal symbols are a mystery at first, eventually revealing another symbol from the game.
When the reveal symbol appears stacked on reel one, the ‘hot hot super respins’ feature is activated. Reel 1 will now be sticky, as will any wilds and any further reveal symbols, while the rest of the reels will spin again. On the first re-spin, any further wilds or reveal symbols will also remain sticky, before the reels embark on another spin. At the end of the second re-spin, all of the reveal symbols on the reels will now change into a randomly chosen symbol from the game.
With many instances of the reveal symbols plus wilds, you might be looking at a very big win after these re-spins.
The bonus symbol features a golden green temple, that sparkles on the reels. To enter the free spins bonus round you’ll need to land this symbol three times or more across any of the reels. On entering the feature, you’ll be awarded with 10 free spins.
However, these are no normal spins, as there are many more wilds and reveal symbols in play at this point. With additional reveal symbols, activating the hot hot super respins is made that much easier – within the 10 spins it wouldn’t be a surprise to activate the feature three or four times (much more frequently than in the base game).
The highest paying symbol in the game is the female character, perhaps the queen or the wife of the warrior. Land the queen five times in a row and you’ll win 200 coins, while the flag bearing warrior pays 150 coins. The long boat, the shield, the battle helmet and the knife each pay 150 coins too, while a pillar, coins and an urn pay 100 coins.
Look out for the wild symbols which shows the eyes of the warrior through a golden helmet. This will substitute for any other symbol in the game apart from the bonus.
To start a spin, you can use the ‘classic’ panel where you’ll choose the coin size to set your stake, or the ‘quick bet’ panel where you’ll simply click on a box with a total stake attached.
Above the reels of this WMS designed game you’ll find ancient Greek temples, giving the game a fine historical air. Pillars stand either side of the reels, while flames are seen all around the slot. In the top right-hand corner, you’ll find a fun flame symbol representing the hot hot super respin feature.
The game plays out on pale pink coloured reels, while the range of golden symbols give this game a shine all of its own. Check out the animation when the wild is involved in a win, which sees the warrior put on his golden mask. During the base game the soundtrack is generic but enter the feature and you’ll hear an epic movie-style theme.
Plataea is a slot that you can really become immersed in. With the ‘reveal’ symbols in play, the base game has an added dimension from the start. This feels a lot more involved than your normal games. Add in the hot hot super respins and you’ve got a feature with great added winning opportunities. The free spins bonus, where the respin feature is much more likely, make this a game you’ll be happy to do battle with.
