Once the greatest, now just ancient, the Roman Empire ruled with the Mediterranean Sea. Pompeii was part of the Roman Empire, but it’s known due to the infamous Vesuvius eruption. The city was covered with burning volcanic lava. Everything stopped at that moment. It’s an interesting story that attracts a lot of attention to this very day. It got the attention of Aristocrat, which designed the Pompeii slot. However, Aristocrat didn’t tap into too much in the catastrophe, instead, they focused on the ancient city. Then again, Vesuvius has a rather important role in Pompeii slot.
Pompeii is a video slot that shows a standard 5x3 symbol grid. It is a 243 ways pay slot, which means the chances to hit a win are way higher than with a common 25 payline slot for instance. Furthermore, the coin has a minimum value of distinctive 0.02 and a maximum size of 1.00. Because players can adjust the number of active lines in play, the minimum bet is 0.50 and the maximum is 125. The top prize you can win by hitting a 5 of a kind win of the highest paying symbol is 2,500 times the bet amount.
To be honest, the graphics and the audio deserve a major overhaul, but we have no reason to believe that will happen anytime soon. The erupting volcano is the Wild symbol in Pompeii slot and it substitutes for any other symbol except the scatter. Players can win 20, 15 or 10 free spins by hitting 5, 4 or 3 scatters anywhere on the reels. Scatters are represented by a golden ancient coin, you can’t miss it! Pompeii slot has a special bonus mode that significantly increases the chances of winning at the price of higher bets.
Free Spins are your best bet in winning big. If you are fortunate enough to trigger this bonus features, rest assured the win counter will keep on counting for a long time. During free games the Erupting Volcano or the Wild Symbol, can act like a multiplier. If the Wild substitutes for a symbol on reel 2 to form a winning line it multiplies the win by 3, if it substitutes in reel 4 it multiplies the win by 5, if it substitutes on both reels 2 and 4 the multiplier is 15.
At this very moment, Pompeii is just a decoration, no more no less. Players hardly ever give it a chance. Once, it was a magnificent piece of software with smooth animations. Today, its younger brothers took its place. We can confidently say that if it gets an overhaul, Pompeii slot will top the lists again just because of its attractive name.
