How to Play
Shields of Rome is a 5 reel slot with 4 rows and 40 fixed paylines. Before you spin the reels, you first need to set your total bet using the controls beneath the reels. When you are happy with your bet just click on the spin button to start the reels. There is also autoplay functionality and a turbo mode to speed things up.
Payouts are won by landing enough matching symbols from left to right along a payline on consecutive reels starting from the leftmost reel. To help you form more winning combinations there is a golden eagle wild symbol that will substitute for all of the other symbols, except for the scatter symbols, to help and form winning combinations.
Bonus Games and Features
You receive a Wild Fire Spin every tenth spin of the reels. During a normal spin, if one of the special S.P.Q.R banner symbols lands then the position it lands on is marked with fire. During the Wild Fire Spin, all of the marked positions become wild for that spin. The wild symbol does not land on any other spins, but the Wild Fire Spins can be hugely profitable.
The Great War Free Games feature is triggered when the bonus catapult symbol lands on reels two, three and four simultaneously. There is the choice of four bonus games:
- 15 free spins with 5 random wilds on each spin.
- 10 free spins with 7 random wilds on each spin.
- 6 free spins with 10 random wilds on each spin.
- Mystery Shield – You are awarded 5, 10 or 15 free spins with 5, 7 or 10 random wilds on each spin.
There is also the option to buy the feature. You can purchase the Great War Free Games for 80 times your total bet.
