‘Ave, Imperator, morituri te salutant!’ was the salute given by gladiators to their emperor before they battled to the death in the Roman Coliseum.
Hopefully there won't be any deaths in this Roman Empire-themed free slots games from NetEnt, but you will certainly need all the strength and wits of a gladiator if you are to fight your way to glory.
Victorious is a five-reel, 243-payline free slots game that you can play anywhere, as it is also available on mobile and tablet. With a theme based on the ancient Roman Empire, it features a free spins round and bonus symbols such as the wild, scatters and multiplier.
Playing convincingly Roman-sounding music in the background, the game screen shows period soldiers, a Roman army eagle standard with the SPQR moniker, and the game title in a golden font at the top of the window.
The golden eagle, which was known to the Roman armies as a symbol of great strength and loyalty, is the wild symbol in this game. We are not sure that this fits entirely with the theme, but there you go.
This symbol can appear either singularly or multiple times on the game reels and stands in place of any other symbol, thus allowing you more chances to form winning combinations.
Caesar's golden laurel wreath - his 'badge of office' - is the scatter symbol in this game. This symbol is also used to launch the free spins bonus feature. Uncovering three or more of these precious emblems of power and superiority in succession, commencing from the left-most game reel, will instantaneously activate up to 25 free bonus spins.
During your free spins, all your winnings are tripled. The amount of free spins you receive in your bonus round depends on the number of golden laurel wreaths you spin. Three wreaths will earn you 15 free spins, uncover four wreaths and you will be rewarded with 20 spins, whilst five wreaths will see you achieve the maximum 25.
Bring out your denarii
You want to play in dollars rather than denarii? OK, we’ll translate for you. The maximum jackpot value in Victorious is 1,500 coins, which in cash terms can equate to $7,500 if you place the highest bet of $5 per pay line.
Even for the lowest bet per pay line of $0.01, you can still win a jackpot of up to $15 by uncovering five emperor symbols.
A little history
You pay the role of a gladiator battling in the Coliseum in this game; however, far from the glamorous role portrayed in many a Hollywood blockbuster, these gladiators were usually convicted criminals sentenced to fight to their deaths for the entertainment of the Roman public.
The statement ‘Ave, Imperator, morituri te salutant!’ given at the start of the battle translates as ‘Greetings Emperor, those who are about to die salute you!’
Each person would then have had to battle desperately, with whatever they had to hand, for their lives.
