Where to play?
Treasures of Troy video slots is another iconic game release from IGT. It offers seamless play across all mobile devices and desktops. I highly recommend this 5 reels 40 payline slots simply because it offers 1024 ways to win and a huge jackpot of 25 million coins. The theoretical return to the player is 95%. Yes it is a bit tight but if you take the total jackpot amount into account it’s worth a bash. The secret sauce of this slots is its multiway wins, wilds and free spins.
The theme of the game is based on the ancient city of Troy circa 1200 BC. If you’ve never heard about the story of Troy before let me bring you up to speed quick. Queen Helen of Sparta fell in love with Paris, younger brother of prince Hector. Paris smuggles Helen out of Sparta to Troy. King Menelaus declares war on Troy. Paris’ misdemeanor plunges Troy into a decade long war with the Greeks. It’s a classic tale by Homer filled with love, deceit, betrayal and epic heroes like Achilles, Ajax and Hector. In this slots, IGT connects with players in more ways than one.
One thing that stands out like a pole above water is the huge bet amounts per spin IGT allows players to wager. The coin range is 0.1 up to 10.00. The lowest bet per spin is $£0.80 up to £$800. It’s pretty evident that IGT’s Treasures of Troy comes in like lion and goes out like a lion.
MultiWay Extra Pays: When I stumbled upon this feature for the first time I was like three pigs in a thunderstorm. But, since then I’ve become a huge fan of this feature. So what makes this feature so special? Conventional paylines are from left to right but not this game’s. It’s paylines are up and down too. A mutliway payout is offered when the same symbol appears on 4 or 5 rows anywhere across the reels. To determine your payout count each icon on the columns and multiply them.
It works like this. If you hit 2 Jacks on the first column, 1 Jacks on the second column, 3 on the third and 2 Jacks on the fourth, your win will be 2x1x3x2 = 12. The Jack’s value is ’10x’. Multiply 12 with 10 which gives you a total payout of 120 coins. Obviously the game calculates all wins for you but it’s nice if you’re able to calculate a payout yourself. The MultiWay feature is my favourite since it offers lucrative wins and it’s relatively easy to hit. The multiway win lacks the an extra multiplier. However, any icon practically acts as one, you can win up to 500x your stake. On average expect to walk away with 10x maybe 40x your bet.
Free Spins: When 2 or more ‘Bonus’ icons appear on the centre column the free spins bonus game is triggered. For two bonus symbols you’ll receive 10 free spins, for 3 you’ll get 15 free spins and 4 awards you 20 free spins. What I like about the free spins is that it can be re-triggered but once again it’s no easy feat. For what it’s worth you can win up to 130 free spins in re-triggers.
Treasures of Troy video slot is by no means flawless. The MultiWay Xtra Wins ensures that you have some cash in your pocket but the game’s high house edge (5%) is against you from the onset. Breaching its high walls in pursuit of treasure could be a bit adventurous in the long run even for die-hard slots fans. With its easy-on-the-eye graphics it’s still fun to play. Just a pity unlocking the free spins is just as difficult as breaching those high walls.
