Riches of Rome is a 5 reel, 30 payline slot machine powered by WMS software. Reel graphics include gold coins, spartan helmets, shields, chariots, Roman statues, pottery, images of the Colosseum, and more. The graphics are sharp and bright, as you would expect from a WMS online slot game.
This Roman-themed online slot is attached to the Jackpot Party Progressive (like all WMS online casino slots), and it also connected to a second progressive jackpot called the Life of Luxury Progressive.
The rolled-up scroll is the wild symbol, and it appears only on reels 2, 3, and 4. The scroll expands to fill the entire reel if a winning combination is created, and the reels are evaluated again once the scroll has expanded. The wild scroll substitutes for all symbols except the scattered gold coins and the Life of Luxury symbol.
If 3 scattered gold coins appear on your screen, the game's Riches of Rome feature is triggered. When this happens, you win 8 free spins! During each free spin, one reel becomes completely wild, which helps to create additional winning combinations. The wild reel is chosen randomly, and the wild substitutes for all symbols except the scattered gold coin. The free spins can be retriggered.
The Life of Luxury icon appears only on the 5th reel, and when it does, the Life of Luxury bonus feature is triggered. When this happens, you are taken to a different screen, where you are awarded 10 free spins. The reels here are filled with images of fancy yachts, luxury cars, expensive champagne, and sparkling jewels. During the free spins, you can trigger one of 5 Jewel Features by landing an opal, a ruby, an emerald, a sapphire, or a diamond on reel #1, 2, 3, 4, or 5, respectively.
When one of the above jewels appears and triggers the Jewel Feature, you will choose 1 of the 8 jewels that appear on the screen. You can win a cash prize or a progressive jackpot plus a cash prize. If you have bet the maximum amount, you automatically win the corresponding progressive jackpot when a jewel appears. The jackpot amounts are shown at the top of the game screen, with the largest "diamond" jackpot in the middle.
Riches of Rome was launched in the summer of 2012, and it is a great new addition to WMS' growing collection of online slot machines. Check it out!
