The story of how only “300” brave Spartan warriors conquered the entire Persian army has been told countless times. The blockbuster movie 300 brought this underdog battle back into the mass consciousness of the West, along with the comic it was based on. Many developers have tried to capitalize on the hype, and Spartan King is Pragmatic Play’s latest effort.
You can place bets between 20 pence and €100 per round, and the high volatility undoubtedly corresponds to the brutality of the battlefield. Visually, the game looks somewhat generic, with an idyllic animated depiction of the Mediterranean Sea as a backdrop. You’ll certainly feel like an underdog here, fighting against the mathematical model, as well as Pragmatic Play’s always uncertain and exaggerated maximum win potential.
Spartan King Slot Features
The base game includes a Mega Shield Wild, which you will also benefit from in the bonus round. You can also land a normal Spartan warrior wild, and this lands on all reels except the first one. Both types of wilds can land on any spin and occur for all regular symbols, as wilds usually do. The Spartan Warrior / King wild pays 20x for 5 on a payline.
The bonus round is really quite similar to the base game, but with an important added benefit. You get 8, 10 or 12 free spins if you land 3, 4 or 5 red flag scatters anywhere on the same spin. You also get an initial scatter win of 1x, 5x or 20x your bet depending on how many red flags you landed.
The 2×2 Mega Wild symbol lands more frequently in free spins and now comes with a random multiplier value of 2x, 3x, 5x, 10x or 25x. You can land more than one 2×2 Mega Wild both in the base game and during the bonus round. However, if you land more than one 2×2 Wild in the bonus round, the total multiplier will still be selected from the same range.
The 200 Spins Spartan King Slot Experience
The random wild boosts of the multiplier make the bonus round quite unpredictable, and we certainly had a taste of it in our 200 spins test session. You can skip to 0:45 in the highlights video if you don’t want the base game to work. We won decent amounts even with the lowest possible wild multiplier and were pretty happy with how it went.
If you’re interested in the legendary macho culture of the ancient world, Spartan King might be worth checking out. The hit movie 300 referred to this ancient civilization as the toughest ever experienced in the minds of most young people, and many slots have tried to capitalize on this fact. Pragmatic Play has centered this game around the 2×2 mega wild, which is even more to the right of it during the bonus round.
However, it is rare that more than one such Mega Wild lands in the base game. This is the best way to really get bigger wins there. The bonus round includes a promise of possible payouts of up to 7,480 times your bet, but we take that with a grain of salt from this developer. We only got 2x multiplier wilds in our bonus round, and while we had a decent time, there are better alternatives in this genre.
