Roman Tribune is an entertaining Konami pokie focusing on two Roman characters. The first of these is a bearded warrior, complete with a golden plumed helmet, ready to go into battle. The second character is a female with long brown curled hair wearing a blue hooded dress. The pair seem to be a couple and are joined by pokie symbols such as broaches, other golden battle helmets and a dagger and shield combination. A golden coin also appears, activating the main bonus feature.
This Konami designed Ancient Rome themed pokie has an original feel, with a very interesting choice to be made! Here are the highlights of this medium variance slot:
The game’s scatter symbol is the gold Roman coin. Land 2, 3, 4 or 5 across any of the reels and you’ll win 2x, 5x, 20x or 100x your total stake respectively. In addition, 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols will activate the free spins bonus feature, awarding you 8, 10 or 15 free games.
However, the scatter symbol can be included as one of the Action Stacked Symbols. This can lead to a scenario where you’ll activate the feature a number of times in one spin. For example, a series of stacked scatter symbols on reels 1, 2 and 3 will give you 8 free spins on each of the 30 win-lines – leading to an incredible 240 free spins. In theory the maximum number is 450 free spins. More good news is the fact that every win you enjoy during the free spins feature is doubled.
Before you embark on the free spins you have a very interesting design to make with the ‘Balance of Fortune’ feature. A pair of scales will appear. If you choose the left-hand side, you’ll be taking a mystery cash prize instead of the free spins (with upper and lower limits to help you decide). On the right-hand side you can simply opt to take the free spins.
Roman Tribune features reels with Action Stacked Symbols – a popular system used on most Konami pokies. On every spin, there are a large number of adjacent symbol positions on each reel set aside. A symbol is chosen at random (a choice of all symbols apart from the wild) and this will now fill all of those positions across the five reels. This can lead to spins where you’ll win across a number of the 30 win-lines in the game.
Roman Tribune is a five-reel slot that features 30 win-lines that pay from left to right. The male Roman warrior acts as the wild symbol and appears on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 only, substituting for any other symbol apart from the scatter. The female character is the highest paying in the game, worth 1,000 coins for the maximum five in a row, while the blue broach pays 500. Aside from the themed symbols, the pay table is completed by the playing card symbols 9, 10, J, Q, K and A.
This Konami designed pokie is flanked by two large pillars, these appear with a light blue colouring due to the shading of the backdrop. Two warriors stand each side of the reels, looking primed, ready for battle. The reels have a pale colour, which acts as a perfect backdrop to show off the colourful range of symbols, while an intricate patterned red frame weaves itself around the outside.
Roman Tribune is an interesting and highly playable pokie from Konami. The Roman theme will certainly appeal to those who like their history, while there is even a hint of romance on the reels. With Action Stacked Symbols on every spin, a big win is only ever a spin away. Activating the free spins bonus gives you an interesting choice. Do you simply play the free spins, or do you effectively gamble and take the cash prize? It’s a tough choice – the free spins with their 2x multipliers in play can offer some very nice wins, while the immediate cash prize offers excitement all on its own.
