A 243 ways to win model suggests that a player roll up a specific number of matching symbols on any position of the adjacent reels starting with the first reel. So there is no need to line up identical symbols across any fixed pattern, as it is the case for any payline-based machine.
The Pompeii slot is played over a 5x3 field located against the backdrop of the doomed Roman city. The symbol set incorporates traditional high playing card icons from 9 through to Ace, and themed symbols (chariots, golden coins, shield & sword, and other antique artifacts associated with that era). The developers have employed a conventional payout model making poker cards the lowest-paying symbols. These award up to x200 times a bet for three to five of a kind, except for Nines and Tens that start paying out if two or more of them hit the reels.
Themed images produce more lucrative combinations starting with 3+ of them matched on the reels. The Chariot and Shield & Sword symbols award up to x1000, the Helmet awards the second-largest jackpot of x2000 times a bet for five of a kind; and the Amulet awards the slot’s top prize worth x2500 times a bet if five occur on the adjacent reels.
By changing a coin denomination, you can alter a bet amount per spin. A coin comes in a range of values from $0.02 to $1. The number of credits per spin is adjusted from 25 to 125. Therefore, the minimum and maximum wagers are $0.5 and $125. If playing at max, you stand the chance to take away a stunning $12,500 if hitting the abovementioned best Amulet combo!
By clicking the Auto Spin button you may select the number of rounds to be spun automatically. The automatic session ends upon the completion of the selected number of spins, or if you press the Stop button.
The Pompeii icon serves as a wild replacing other icons to finish a winning combo. It can appear on reels 2 and 4 only. In this casino slot, a wild does not pay out independently, yet it has some lucrative capabilities during a free spins feature.
It is a bit strange that a free spins feature is triggered by a regular symbol, not a scatter, in the Pompeii slot. If three, four or five Golden Coin symbols display on the reels correctly, you are awarded 10, 15 or 20 retriggerable free spins accordingly. During the free games all the payouts come at their nominal values, unless wilds are used to create a combo. If a wild appears on reel 2 or 4 helping complete a combination, your win is multiplied by 3 or 5 respectively. If wilds appear on both reels 2 and 4 helping complete a combination, your win is multiplied by 15.
Pompeii is a well-rounded 243 ways to win slot that boasts nice graphics, up to 20 free spins and a unique theme. The slot has a flexible betting range, with its maximum reaching $100 that works well for high rollers.
