Where to play?
IGT brings you King of Macedonia, a medium volatility video slot with 40 paylines, 5 reels that pays a top non-progressive jackpot of 200 coins. Bets start at 80 pence up to a mammoth £1,600 per spin playable on mobile devices (Androids, tablets, iPhones) and desktop computers. You can find this game at our top IGT Casinos.
The theme of the game is based on Alexander the Great (circa 300BC) arguably one of the greatest ancient generals who ever lived. Yup he’s the dude that invaded Persia, he decided it’s payback time since the Persians invaded Greece a couple of hundred years before. If you haven’t heard about him before (which we doubt) you can read all about his epic battles and exploits on this page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexander_the_Great
When it comes to in-play bonus modes, King of Macedonia has Gigantic Wilds that can be as wide as 2 reels, 10x multipliers and a King Free Spins feature that’s replete with sticky wilds that sticks to the reels while the reels spin.
In typical IGT fashion the graphics are not offer the top with symbols such as treasure chests, warrior helms, violins, vases, scrolls, goblets, wilds (King of Macedonia) and the Queen of Macedonia. The symbol that offers the biggest payout is the Queen of Macedonia, 5 of them at the maximum bet pays 200 coins. King of Macedonia comes with a RTP (average return to player percentage) of 96%.
Don’t let the medium variance bit scare you, based on our playing experience the game is a good fit for low, medium and high staked players. It takes around 100 spins or more (maybe less) before a bonus feature is triggered. Expect a few dry spins base game payouts are so-so while the biggest cash prizes are reserved for the free spins. The usual customization options apply (Auto Play, graphics, coin bet).
The icon that’s the wild is the King of Macedonia, when it appears next to adjacent symbols it transforms them into wilds bar the scatter (Shield). The Gigantic wilds only pop up on the second and fourth reels respectively, in other words they can cover reels 2, 3, 4 or 5 fully. In the vent this happens a small windfall will be heading your way.
Random Wild Multiplier
When the Bonus shield scatter appears on the first reel along with the Gigantic Wild wins will be multiplied by multipliers of 2x, 3x, 5x right up to 10x.
Like the majority of the slots out there the business end of the game is King Free Spins feature which is played when the Bonus shield pops up on the first reel along with Gigantic Wild on reels 2 and 4, 8 free spins will be given. Should a wild appear during the free spins it remains locked on the reels boosting payouts.
IGT has still a lot of catching up to do especially if it wants to compete with the big boys like Microgaming or NetEnt. If it continues to roll out slots such as King of Macedonia we believe it will start closing the gap.
The key to the game is unlocking its free spins feature in conjunction with multiplier of 2x up to 10x. It’s not easy but if you’re lucky enough it could well be worth the effort. The only gripe we have is that the high value symbols could have offered better payouts.
