Travel back to ancient times on the Almighty Sparta slot from Endorphina for a recall of the Battle of Thermopylae between an alliance of Greek city-states and the Persian Empire. The famous battle saw a small army led by King Leonidas of Sparta stopping the advance of the vastly larger Persian army of King Xerxes at the pass of Thermopylae. However, they were betrayed by Ephialtes who showed the Persians a path that led behind the Greek lines and thus sentenced Leonidas’ army to perdition.
There are very few events in our history that have featured so often in stories, legends, books, movies, computer games and yes, slots. The drama around the fate of the fearless Spartans makes for suspenseful reel battles. Almighty Sparta is Endorphina’s take featuring reel-tall Leonidas wilds, the Persian King Xerxes and a free spins round with an x4 multiplier that can lead to wins of up to 5,000 times your bet.
Almighty Sparta is a video slot with five reels, three rows and 10 variable pay lines. Wins are awarded for three to five symbols on an active line from left to right only. You can witness the Battle of Thermopylae on desktop or mobile from 0.10 to 100 credits per spin. The RTP of this highly volatile game is set at a flat 96%.
The coastal passage of Thermopylae at sunset can be seen in the background of the game window that is flanked by Greek columns. Bold graphics in ancient style and depictions of the Kings feature prominently on the reels while a harrowing soundtrack heightens the suspense.
The pay symbols start at the low end with the card royals from 9 through to A, paying 10x to 20x your bet for a single five of a kind. They are followed by Spartan swords and spears as well as Ephialtes, The Oracle of Delphi and King Xerxes. Land five on a line to win 50x to 500x your stake.
King Leonidas is the wild symbol, appearing at all times as a reel-tall icon and substituting for all symbol bar scatters. Pays are the same as for the King Xerxes symbol. A Spartan warrior shield studded with Persian arrows is the scatter symbol.
It is all about the free spins on this slot since there are no other features. Three to five shield scatters anywhere on the reels in one spin will trigger 20 free spins which can be indefinitely retriggered. Plus, you will pocket 5x, 20x and 500x your total bet for three, four and five scatters respectively. All wins during the feature are multiplied by x4. Hitting a five of a kind King Xerxes symbols would pay a massive 2,000 times your bet. The overall potential peaks at 5000x the stake.
Endorphina is known for its high-volatility slots that rarely come with multiple features. Almighty Sparta fits perfectly into the profile. It is all about the big line pays and the free spins multipliers that will make up for the endurance through long dry periods that are common for such high-variance games.
