Wonder of Ages slot review
Wonder of Ages slot by Blueprint Gaming is one of their many historical themes, this time ancient rulers. The reels lie over a backdrop of old architecture with classical music and dramatic crashes as we spin and win. Fortunes of Sparta slot was an older one of theirs but quite playable, Rome Rise of an Empire slot more recent and quite mediocre as was Red Tiger's Wild Spartans slot. So shall we be wondering if this game will take an age to add anything to our bankroll?
On The Reels...
We get 5 reels of 3 rows and 20 pay lines on Wonder of Ages slot with symbols appearing singly aside from the low values of which you can see 2 on a reel. There are no random modifiers aside from the Jackpot King progressive which is linked to this game usually. The pays are quite good with 500x bet for the Wild 5-of-a-kind, 50x Caesar, 25x Cleopatra, 10X King or Mongol Warrior, 12X Pharaoh or Spartan Warrior, 8x vase and 3 low Roman Numerals all at 5x for a full line. The final symbol is the game Logo Scatters appearing singly on all reels.
Wonder of Ages Bonus
This is where it gets more interesting as there are 4 types of free spins from landing 3 or more scatters in view. You get 20 coins to select from and match 3 to win that particular free games variant. You can pick again afterwards and maybe earn another free spins bonus unless you hit a Fallen Temple tile though which ends the picks, but don't worry you'll not get this before getting the first spins bonus!
Empire Of Rome Free Spins - 9 spins with an Emperor stacked Wild stuck to reel 3, no retrigger.
Wonders Of Egypt Free Spins - 9 spins where each spin up to 5 tiles can be turned Wild, no retriggers.
Rise Of Greece Free Spins - 9 spins with the centre position reel 3 a sticky Wild and each 3 spins the multiplier rises by 1x. Again, no retriggers.
Mighty Dynasty Free Spins - 9 spins with every win getting a random multiplier up to 5x, no retriggers.
A pretty mediocre game in every sense is Wonder of Ages slot. The RTP is 95.00% plus 0.49% for progressive and reserve contributions. Then we get little hope of anything decent in the base game, and none of the free games variants will offer much up either, you'd be fortunate to win 200x bet in any of them if you played it all day. The graphics, sounds and animations are basic too and to cut a long story short, I'll not need to wonder for an age whether I'll be playing this again...
