A Trojan War Themed Pokie featuring the Multiway Xtra System
The Trojan war is a story in Greek mythology where the city of Troy was laid siege too by the Acheans (Greeks). The war was waged after Paris of Troy took Helen from her husband Menalaus, the king of Sparta. All three of these characters appear on the reels of this IGT designed pokie, while armour and swords also appear to point to the incredible battle that took place outside of the city walls. Look out for the Trojan horse too, which made a huge breakthrough in the battle itself, and will provide you with a huge breakthrough into the bonus feature. Treasures of Troy is an interesting and unique game, where you gain a real feel for the history and the battle in its numerous highlights.
Great Reasons to Play Treasures of Troy
To enter the free spins feature you’ll need to land two or more bonus symbols anywhere on the middle column. With each symbol spinning independently, it is possible to fill the column with the maximum four bonus symbols.
Land two bonus symbols on this column and you’ll activate the feature with 10 free spins. Three bonus symbols will start the feature with 15 free spins, while the maximum five bonus symbols will award you an impressive 20 free spins.
Throughout the feature you’ll be playing on reels that are richer than in the base game, giving you more opportunities of those bigger wins. The free spins can be retriggered on multiple occasions too, with 2, 3 or 4 bonus symbols adding 10, 15 or 20 more spins to your existing total (the awarded number of spins will simply be added to your existing total). The retriggers will only stop if you have reached the maximum number of 130 spins.
Treasures of Troy is unusual in that it offers two different winning methods. The first is the more traditional win-lines. There are 40 of these standard win-lines and these pay from left to right. The second winning method is the Multiway Xtra. This system sees you win when you line up matching symbols on consecutive reels from left to right, regardless of the position on the reels. This second method sees given 1,024 ways to win.
With both of these methods in play, it is possible to win both ways. In fact, if you do win on a win-line, you are also guaranteed a Multiway Xtra win too, although this doesn’t always work in reverse.
The total cost of each spin is 80 credits (40 credits for the win-lines and 40 credits for the Multiway Xtra format). The game features two separate pay tables, with higher rewards for the more difficult to achieve win-line pay outs.
A look at the pay table shows Helen is the highest paying symbol in the game, worth 5,000 coins for 5 in a row on a win-line, or 500 coins using the Multiway Xtra format. Paris and Menelaus are next on the pay table, followed by a battle helmet and a sword with a sheath. The pay table is completed by the playing card symbols J, Q, K and A. The title / logo symbol is wild and appears on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 only, substituting for all apart from the bonus symbol on reel three.
Treasures of Troy plays out against a background showing the walled city of Troy, with large pillars framing the reels. The three main characters in the intrigue of the story all appear, with animation on the reels when landing a bigger win with any of the three. Battle cries, roars and the sound of the bugle can greet winning spins, bringing the siege to life.
IGT has produced an original and involving historical pokie in Treasures of Troy. With two winning systems in play, the action comes thick and fast, and there’ll be many spins when you receive a pair of prizes! Land those bonus symbols on reel three and you’ll enter the free spins, where those richer reels will give you the best winning opportunities in the game. Helen, Paris and Menelaus were fully engaged in the siege of Troy, and there is little doubt you’ll join them.
