An Ancient Roman Themed Slot Featuring Four Reel Sets and Multipliers Everywhere
Chariot Racing in ancient Rome is considered to be one of the most brutal ‘sports’ in human history. The Circus Maximus spectacle was perhaps made most famous by the 1950’s movie ‘Ben Hur’ starring Charlton Heston. Alongside the chariots, this WMS designed slot features Roman warriors and armour including shields and swords, taking the chariots out onto the battlefield too. The game features three additional reel sets, which can be activated at any time and quickly become the focus of the whole game.
Roman Chariots is an exciting and involving game, with the following array of features:

On entering the slot machine Roman Chariots you’re met with a main reel set filling much of the screen, with three smaller reel sets above. At the start of the game, reel sets A, B and C are all ‘greyed out’ meaning they are not active. To activate these, you’ll need to hit a fully wild reel. Stacked wilds on reels 2, 3 and 4 will activate reel sets A, B and C respectively. Once activated, any additional stacked wilds will see the multiplier on the appropriate reel increase by 1.
The additional activated reels will spin when you land a green bugle on reel five, so you’ll be on the lookout for this symbol at all times. Occasionally, the green bugle can have a multiplier attached, which makes things very interesting, as these will multiply the multipliers! For example, you might have multipliers of 2x, 5x and 3x on reel sets A, B and C. If you land a 5x multiplier on the green bugle, for that spin only you’ll enjoy 10x, 25x and 15x multipliers (they’ll revert to 2x, 5x and 3x for the next spin).
While the multipliers are increasing on the upper reels, the excitement continues to grow. However, you’ll want to avoid the red bugle at all costs. If this appears on reel 5, you’ll lose all the multipliers and reel sets A, B and C will all be deactivated.
The bonus symbol features a chariot wheel on a blue background. You’ll need to land this on reels 1 and 5 to win 8 free spins and an instant award of 2x your total bet. During the free spins, the red bugle can’t appear, ensuring that the multipliers continue to rise with no risk. The free spins feature can be reactivated at any time by hitting the two bonus symbols again.
Each of the four reel sets in the game have a 5x3 reel configuration and 20 win-lines. An image of a horse on a green background pays the top prize of 400 coins for 5 in a row, while a Roman warrior pays 150 coins. The mid paying symbols feature a variety of battle wear. The low end of the pay table features the playing cards 10, J, Q, K and A.
The chariot wild symbol, which is stacked on reels 2, 3 and 4 will substitute for any other symbol apart from the scatter and the bugles.
The backdrop to Roman Chariots features a grey stone wall with ancient images of Roman soldiers marching to war. This sets the scene nicely and provides a nice contrast to the very colourful reels. With four reel sets, the game feels surprisingly uncrowded, while the graphics are slick and sharp throughout. While playing you’ll hear battle sounds, with the clashing of swords and the whinnying of the horses.
Roman Chariots is a slot that engages players from the start. You’ll be hoping to activate those upper reels as soon as possible and see those multipliers grow. Hitting the green bugle is always a boost, giving the opportunity for those large multiplier wins. Enter the free spins feature and the pressure is off, as those multipliers can only increase. If you like a slot where the excitement builds and builds, Roman Chariots is a slot well worth a spin.
