Lord of Asia
The King of Macedonia video slot is a new machine that will be released for online casinos that utilize software by IGT. The machine is actually based on a live cabinet that goes by the same name, and should emulate the action of that game very closely. The game uses a bold color scheme but overall presents a fairly simple screen, with the reels taking up most of the layout. All the rest of the information you need is presented below the play area, and you can see just the outlines of a Greek setting in the background.
While we haven’t seen a demo of the online version just yet, we expect that IGT will build it so that it is fully mobile-optimized, allowing you to enjoy the machine on your iPhone or Android device. Similarly, while we don’t have a full range of betting options for the online slot just yet, we’re fairly confident that there will be plenty of options for low limit players, as well as some choices of coins and denominations that will provide betting levels appropriate for high roller gamblers.
Commanding the Troops
The King of Macedonia video slot is five reel machine with a large 5×5 layout that provides 40 paylines on which players can win. The object of the game is to match symbols from left to right across the reels. You’ll need to hit at least three consecutive identical icons to win prizes in most cases, though some of the most valuable symbols can also offer prizes should you manage to hit just two in a row.
Smaller rewards come from putting together lines made up of lutes, scrolls, urns and bowls. The middle of the pay table includes valuables like a jewelry box, a helmet, and a mighty black horse. For the largest rewards, however, you’ll want to look for the image of a beautiful woman. Hit two or more in a row, and you’ll earn a prize, with five on the same payline granting you the largest normal payouts available on this machine.
Lead Your Armies to Victory
Like most online slots, you’ll want to find some special symbols in order to improve your chances of winning. Wild symbols can appear on the screen in the form of giant portraits of Alexander himself. These are big enough to cover two entire reels, and can appear in two positions: either covering the second and third columns, or covering the last two reels. In any case, every position that ends up showing part of these icons will act as a wild, substituting wherever it can to complete winning lines.
In addition, there is a bonus icon that only appears on the first reel. When this shows up, it can have one of two effects. If no wild symbols appear at the same time, this will provide a multiplier of somewhere between 2x and 10x for all of your winning lines on that spin. However, if at least one wild is found on screen at the same time, you’ll instead earn eight free spins. This feature cannot be retriggered, as the bonus symbol does not appear on the screen during the free games round.
Take Your Throne
Mix a killer theme and a commitment to classic slots action, and you have King of Macedonia. That’s a combination that has proven to be a winner many times before, and we expect that plenty of players will enjoy spending some time with Alexander the Great at their favorite online casino. While this isn’t the most feature-rich machine out there, the giant wilds and free spins round still provide enough excitement and potential for big wins to make this an entertaining and engaging machine.
