Civilisation at Its Best
Olive Republic’s main feature is the gorgeous background. You can, and should, take a moment to admire the beautiful Italian landscape that stretches all the way to the blue sea before you start spinning the reels. Olive Republic bets on realism to create a unique gaming atmosphere, and the final result is simply breathtaking.
Apart from the background, Olive Republic features all the necessary practical command buttons right under the reels in the foreground. The characters on the reels themselves have a bit more of a cartoonish look, but nothing that would break the spell. Overall, Olive Republic looks great and will make you want to start betting right away.
For the People, by the People
Olive Republic is based on 5 reels with 40 paylines and a rather short betting range going from 0.40 to 20 credits per spin when all paylines are activated. Use the plus and minus buttons to adjust your settings before you place your first bet, in regular or autoplay game mode. Olive Republic also includes an optional gamble game after each win, just to give you a chance to double up your latest cash payout instantly.
Being a low-volatility game, Olive Republic is dynamic and will get you hooked right away. Far from just being a pretty face, the game is offering players good chances to score cash prizes, albeit small at first, at basically every turn. It didn’t take us long to start winning, and it felt great. As for the paytable, it is home to both classic card symbols and Roman amphorae, boats, statues, soldiers and statesmen, with a maximum reward of 125 credits when playing in bet max. You can always increase your chances to win big thanks to the game’s special features as well.
Follow the Signs to the Jackpot
The wooden wild signs have the power to replace any of the basic symbols on the reels instantly. You can also find arrow-shaped signs, which will point towards a neighbouring symbol and turn it into a wild as well. And finally, wild signs appearing on reels 4 and 5 unlock a win multiplier going up to x5 – and several wilds in that position can add up their multipliers for a super win.
The golden shields are scatters, and finding 3 of them at the same time awards 5 free spins instantly. Start this bonus round by picking a shield to reveal the initial number of wilds on the reels, which will stay in place until the end of the round. Finding more scatters during the free game mode add prolong it and add more wilds on the reels as well. This fun feature is clearly the one you want to be aiming at, and it isn’t as hard to trigger as you may think.
Beautiful and Quickly Addictive
Olive Republic starts off strong with a beautiful graphic atmosphere and stays strong all the way to the end. Low-variance means that real big wins can be harder to come by, but the bonus features will be of help in that regard. Overall, the paytable is probably not as generous as we would have wanted, so we recommend to play all-in whenever possible to truly unlock the potential of Olive Republic.
