Rome: The Golden Age Slot Review
Rome: The Golden Age is a 5-reel slot from NetEnt. It has a diamond-shaped 3-4-5-4-3 row format and several intriguing bonus features. Theme-wise, it takes on you a journey back to the thriving Roman Empire where gladiators entertained the roaring crowd in mortal combat with wild animals. Violent and ruthless, just like the game’s volatility rate. From a player’s perspective, the focus of the game is the progressive multiplier. Collect points to rack up a 1,000x multiplier, and it will be added to your total wins in the bonus round aftermath.

Rome: The Golden Age Bonus Features
There are three bonus features, but Rome: The Golden Age is all about growing your multipliers during the base game to having them later applied to your wins in the free spins round. Here’s how it all works.
Wild logos substitute for all paying symbols, except scatters and pay 5x your stake for a cluster of 5. Unlike traditional wilds, they can be activated via the Golden Age symbol – a gold coin. When the Golden Age symbol lands, it leaves a frame behind. The frame will activate if the Golden Age symbol randomly turns into a Rome symbol.
On the next spin, the position with the Rome symbol turns into a wild symbol which consecutively turns all adjacent framed positions into wilds. The newly formed wilds will then transform the following adjacent symbols into wilds up to 5 times.
Representing the Roman Empire flags, 3 or more scatters trigger the game’s free spins bonus round when they hit reels 2, 3 and 4 on a single spin.
Free Spins Multiplier
While in the base game, check out the free spins multiplier bar above the reels. The more points you collect during the base game, the more you’ll benefit from them in the free spins round. In short, up to a 1,000x multiplier could be added to your wins if you collect 200 points.
You can earn up to 5 points at a time in two different ways. Landing a Golden Age symbol on a spot that doesn’t have any frame will earn you 1 point. Landing the symbol within the frame-marked spot will earn you anything from 1 to 5 points. You won’t be accumulating any points during free spins, so collect as many as you can in the base round.
The round starts with 3 free spins, a 1x progressive multiplier and all positions with frames or Rome symbols that did not transform into wilds on the triggering spin locked. These will award 1x to 50x your stake payouts at the end of the bonus round.
Only sticky Rome symbols land during the bonus round. Landing them on any unlocked position during the free spins round will give you a 1x to 50x your bet random prize and reset the spins back to 3. All your wins get a boost from the multiplier you’ve acquired in the base game at the end of the round. Plus, if you fill the screen entirely with Rome symbols at the end of the free spins round, an extra 2x multiplier will be added to your total wins plus your starting multiplier.
Rome: The Golden Age Jackpot
A jackpot has not been included in the game, but the good news is the game features a mighty max win of 100,000x your stake.
