If you are a fan of ancient history, the Pompeii disaster must surely rank high in your estimation. Almost 2000 years ago, Mount Vesuvius erupted and decimated the city of Pompeii as well as killing many of the inhabitants. This video slot from Aristocrat has excellent graphics and supporting audio to enhance the game and add to your enjoyment. Pompeii Slot is popular at both land-based and online casinos alike.
Presented on five reels with three rows each and offers 243 different ways of rewarding you. There is a betting range starting at 50c up to $125 to suit every budget.
Free Spins Feature
During the eruption, watch out for gold coins as they can be very beneficial. Spin 3 of them, and you win a 5x multiplier plus ten free spins. Should you spin four gold coins, the multiplier increases to 20x plus 15 free spins. Trigger five gold coins, and you will be rewarded with a 50x multiplier plus 20 free spins.
Gold coins are not the only icons to reward you, in addition to the standard poker card range of 9 to the Ace. But the better rewards come with helmets, swords and shields, particularly the roman type amulets, which rate high rewards. You will be pleased with more rewards throughout the play. Trigger a winning line with a wild on the second reel, and your reward is 3x. Do the same on the fourth reel, and your reward increases to 5x. If lady luck is with you and you trigger both simultaneously, the volcano erupts, and you earn a fantastic multiplier of 15x.
Pompeii is one of the original releases from Aristocrat, but it has not lost its appeal – it is a clever production and well worth playing.
