Join the Roman legionnaires on the slot from NetEnt. Victorious Classic / MAX is a remake of the 2011 original that has been converted to the latest HTML5 standard and features now two volatility settings. A simple switch will let you aim for smaller hits more often or less frequent but bigger wins. NetEnt kept the wild substitutions and a free spins round with an x3 multiplier that can lead to wins of up to 1,500x in the Classic version and up to 7,000x your bet in the MAX version.
Victorious Classic / MAX is a dual video slot with two volatility settings, featuring five reels, three rows and 243 ways to win. Pays are awarded for two to five matching symbols on adjacent reels from left to right only. March with the Roman legions on desktop, mobile or tablet from 0.25 to 125 credits per spin. The Classic version has medium volatility with an RTP of 96.88% while the MAX version has high volatility with an RTP 96.95%.
A marching legion in natural surroundings in the Classic version turns to a dangerously red-looking background in the MAX version, signalling the pitfalls of high variance games. The geometric game window is populated by the same symbol set as on the original while the generic soundtrack has also remained unchanged. Overall, NetEnt didn’t do much on the remake but the graphics and animations look now a little more polished and more in focus.
On the reels, you will find the card royals from 9 through to A at the low end, awarding 3.2x to 8x your stake on both, the Classic and MAX version. They are followed by a marching Roman legion, an attacking legionnaire, a centurion and Caesar. The pays for a five of a kind on the Classic version range from 16x to 60x your bet. Activating the MAX version will see them rise to 24x to 200x your bet.
The famous Roman eagle from the SPQR standard is the wild symbol, substituting for all symbols including the scatter which is a wreath of laurel.
If you have previously played Victorious then you will know what to expect as NetEnt made no changes to the feature. Three, four or five scatters on adjacent reels starting from the leftmost will trigger 15, 20 and 25 free spins respectively, which can be indefinitely retriggered. Throughout the free spins, all wins are multiplied by x3.
Victorious has been a permanent fixture in NetEnt’s stable of simple yet intriguing video slots and features regularly among other popular games such as Piggy Riches, Starburst and Gonzo’s Quest which were released around the same time. With the HTML5 upgrade, it is bound to stay for at least another few years. I do like the volatility switch which allows me to play according to my mood of the day.
