Let’s head to ancient Rome and to a battle-weary Roman Army who are going home laden with riches. NetEnt have taken this unique theme and added old fashioned cartoon style graphics, and a very interesting feature.
Victorious is a 5-reel slot with 243 ways to win and offers the troops a battle worthy 96.9% RTP. We touched upon the graphics design above, which has a cartoon comic strip feel to it. Higher value symbols are depicted by an Emperor, Centurion, Soldier and an army. Whilst lower values are formed by the usual card denominations of A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9.
Bet Amounts – Betting begins at 25p per spin and can be adjusted up to the maximum of £125 per spin. You can amend your bets by changing the coin value to the right and the coin level to the left of the spin button.
Wild Symbol – Normally seen atop of a very long stick leading the army, your wild symbol is the golden eagle. A symbol of strength and wealth within the roman empire, hopefully it will bring you some luck too. It will substitute for all other symbols including the scatter, which is a nice addition to Victorious on the game developers’ part.
Scatter Symbol – Your scatter symbol is the golden wreath and landing three or more will trigger the bonus system for players. The more scatters you land the bigger the spins allocated and thankfully in Victorious your wilds symbol will substitute for the scatter as well, meaning more chances of winning.
243 ways to win feature – This is an innovative feature that lots of game developers are adding. Instead of needing dedicated pay lines to win, you just need to have symbols matching on subsequent symbols starting left to right in any order. It doesn’t necessarily mean you are guaranteed more wins, but the odds are more in your favour than with the usual pay line structure adopted by most slots.
Jackpot Feature – If you’re lucky enough to land yourself 5 of the emperor symbols in a winning combination, you will be awarded the jackpot win. This is a x1500 coin win that will be added immediately to your balance. So, although there is no need to play a mini game to win it, we still felt it was worth a mention as it can culminate in a pretty big jackpot.
Bonus Spins Feature – Whilst Victorious only has one playable feature to speak of, it can be very rewarding once it is activated. To trigger the bonus spins you need to have landed three or more wreath scatter symbols on subsequent reels, starting from left to right. This may sound hard but consider that the wild will sub for the scatter and it makes things more achievable.
- 3 scatter symbols will award 15 bonus spins and a x3 multiplier,
- 4 scatter symbols will award 20 bonus spins and a x3 multiplier,
- 5 scatter symbols will award 25 bonus spins and a x3 multiplier.
Victorious is a very easy game to play and can help pass the boredom of a bus or train journey. Wins happen relatively often within the base game and more so once the bonus spins are activated. Getting those spins is easier with Victorious than it is with other slots because your wild will substitute for the scatter, not something you see every day. NetEnt really threw in a curve ball there and we feel it’s because there is just the one feature present, so they felt they needed to make it more achievable. Overall a pleasing slot with the RTP high enough to pique most players interest, just a shame the graphics and soundtrack let it down somewhat.
