King of Macedonia
Alexander the Great is one of the most successful rulers and military commanders in our history. He came to the throne when he was only twenty and by the age of thirty he managed to create one of the largest empires of the old world and he never lost any battle. If this is not impressive, then we don’t know what is. As the biggest ruler of all times, he definitely deserves a slot in his honor. And IGT folks took care of it and brought us King of Macedonia slot that is as powerful as its inspiration. It comes with 5 reels and 40 pay lines with a bit higher betting limits. The betting scale starts from a minimum of 80p per spin up to a huge £1,600 per spin. The low-rollers may find betting options a bit too high but the medium and high rollers will definitely find their place in this slot.
All the symbols on the reels are theme related and a bit downside is that the payout values are a bit smaller than expected, but still, with random multipliers awarded during the base game there are some nice awards to be won. The two most valuable symbols are the Alexander’s Queen and a black horse, while the other symbols include a helmet, a jewellery box, a harp, an amphora, and a paper scroll. These all appear on the reels set in the medieval designed frame with swords on both sides. Visually, this slot is great and easy on the eyes and looks just the good across all devices. There’s no need to download any apps or software in order to start the game so all you need to do is launch the game directly on your internet browser and start the adventure alongside the powerful Alexander the Great.
Base Game Features and Free Spins Bonus Game
Since Alexander was the greatest and most powerful king it’s only natural that his symbol here be as powerful as he was. And that’s exactly the case since King of Macedonia symbol is a wild that substitutes for all symbols except the Bonus icon. And he’s not a regular wild but a Gigantic Wild that covers two whole reels. It appears on reels 2 and 4 only, but if both Gigantic Wilds appear at the same time you’ll have reels 2, 3, 4, and 5 completely wild! This will result in drastically enhanced winning chances for you. Wild King in the combination with the Shield Bonus icon unlocks the King Free Spins Bonus with 8 free games awarded with sticky wilds. Namely, all reel positions with wilds before activating the Free Games will remain in place throughout the whole Bonus round providing you with better wins. Unfortunately, you cannot re-trigger the bonus and get more free spins. But on the bright side, with Gigantic Wilds, 8 free spins may be enough to boost up your budget. Furthermore, another budget-booster appears when a Shield Bonus appears on the first reel and without any wilds in sight will activate the feature that will award random multipliers (2x, 3x, 5x, or 10x) and apply them to all line wins at that spin.
All considered, this IGT slot comes with a great and inspirational theme so if you are interested in the world’s history then this slot may be interesting for you. With Gigantic Wilds, random multipliers, and Free Spins King of Macedonia can provide nice wins. But if you are interested in wins that go beyond 300 times your stake per spin, then you should probably try out some other names such as NextGen’s 300 Shields with the historical theme also.
