Who can forget that now iconic scene in a very stylish movie where the Spartan king yells ‘this is Sparta!’. Still a section of that flick that sends the hair up on your neck. If you’ve ever wondered if you’d find yourself in a situation where you can shout those same words for a valid reason, then Spartan Fire might just be your best bet…so to speak. As far as online casino games go, this one is loaded with a free spins feature containing serious added value, and once you look at what that feature brought you in terms of winnings, that phrase you’ve always wanted to boom out could just be the right moment. Let’s check out the five reels and 40 paylines in our latest review.
The longer we stick at these online slot reviews, the more new casino software studios seem to spring up, which is to be expected, but now it’s happening at a quicker rate. Lightning Box is one of the newer ones, although they gave us very accomplished titles in the form of Golden Yak and Blown Away. Spartan Fire takes inspiration from 300, that iconic movie we were talking about, with the Spartan king even looking a little like Gerhard Butler. There are quite a few extras that add to the theme, although we must say that the illustrations aren’t entirely on the level we’ve seen from various studios lately. The mobile functionality is pretty good, so you’ll be able to get some spins in while out and about.
The maximum bet in Spartan Fire is a little higher than most of the games we’ve been looking into as featured slots online, being £40 per spin. This still isn’t that high, compared to what the trends were over the last decade. The betting starts at a very low 40p per spin, but then again, 20p per spin is about industry standard. There’s a decent maximum win in relation to the maximum bet, being 5,685x your wager.
Sparta is prominent in Spartan Fire when it comes to the symbols you’ll see spinning in this five-reel slot. There are three wild icons, which is a little unique and not something you see in every game. There’s the mask wild, the woman wild and the man wild, all standing in for all symbols, except the bonus icon, to help create winning paylines.
The Spartans, being the male and female warriors, also make appearances on the reels as the highest paying on the regular icons, and are closely followed by a Spartan battleship and a warrior manning a chariot. They might not be the most exciting symbols to discuss, but the lower-paying icons are standard playing cards, consisting of 9, 10, J, Q, K and A. They definitely do their part in bringing in substantial amounts.
Bonuses and Jackpots
The bonus symbol, which you’ll want landing as often as possible, is your ticket into the bonus feature. To trigger this feature you’ll need to land three bonus icons on the same spin, and this gives you a free spins feature, with some excellent additions. At the beginning of the feature a screen is displayed where you need to pick from a selection of 10 shields. Things start getting a little complicated. However, all you need to know is that once the picking is done, you’ll be awarded six free spins with the add-ons that you managed to achieve from picking specific shields. Among these are multipliers in the spins, the addition of extra wilds and more free games than are what come as standard.
In the free spins, you’ll notice that the man and the woman can become wilds, which isn’t a feature during the regular game.
Play Spartan Fire at PartyCasino
Spartan Fire is a very engaging slot, which is evident once you make it into the free spins feature. The rest of the gameplay is relatively standard, although we can’t really fault it in that winning chances are always around the corner. In order to achieve victory, you won’t have to go into battle, at all, but instead go for wins in this five reel epic.
