About the Game
The setting of the Colosseum and the bloodied clashes to the death that were the entertainment of Emperors of ancient Rome themes this slot. We have 5 standard reels, boarded by vine covered columns and carved architecture. It's a neat and compact play screen and the colours and artful graphics borrow from the chosen venue and period. The reels hold the symbols representative of Rome's historic Colosseum events.

Symbols include a fierce tiger, the Emperor's lady, the Colosseum, a gilded shield, a pair of scandals and a bunch of grapes. Other symbols are a pouch of coins, a soldier’s helmet, a chariot and loose coins. Then there is the Emperor himself as a wild he appears on reels two, three and four, and a battle scarred shield is the scatter.

Intermittent sound bites accompany the reel spins and it all comes together to promote the sights and sounds of the dusty arena where many fought, faced down a tiger or raced chariots at furious speeds. This was for the pleasure of the Emperor and the entertainment of baying crowds. The Emperors thumbs up or thumbs down dictated the life or death outcome of many a sword fight. As in life, the Emperor wild in this slot wields his own thumbs up or down power too. And like a gladiator of the day, you are at his discretion and mercy.

While its immediate impression is somewhat underwhelming and it appears a little dated now, the graphics and their animations compensate for this. There are 25 pay lines and, as mentioned, the Emperor rules and his thumbs up can award you some impressive free spin awards thus he holds the main attraction. Get three or more scatter shields and any wins are automatically doubled. However, watch for the Emperor, should he drop anywhere on any of the reels he inhabits, after a moment’s thought you either get the thumbs up or the thumbs down. Thumbs up and you garner 1 to 3 more free spins. Because it is triggered by the scatter symbol you can enter the free spins bonus with just one pay line, however, more pay lines equal bigger prizes. Implementing an important, well-known element of the theme is a great touch and good fun. It puts Call of The Colosseum in the top group of an already cluttered field of Roman themed games.

The Verdict
If ancient Rome and the plight of the heroic gladiator interests you, Call of The Colosseum is definitely worth a try. Likewise, if freebies are your bag this slot will appeal to you. It gets a good thumbs up.
