Free King of Macedonia slot
Please be patient, some games take longer to load than others!
King of Macedonia slot has a mighty theme to go with the mighty reels as IGT take us back to ancient times again with a theme presumably referring to the mightiest of them all, the all-conquering Philip II or is it his son, Alexander The Great? Either way we get some fine graphics and animations here with thundering classical music hinting at military triumphs and a stunning background of the palace gardens to behold as we spin the reels. The game is a remake of the land-based King of Atlantis slot and you may have played Quickspin's Sticky Bandits too which is very similar, so will this great King conquer our bankroll too?
On the reels...
King of Macedonia grants us 40 paylines over 5 reels of 5 rows each, so a large 5x5 grid is in play. The icons are all stacked except for a special one on reel 1 which we'll come to shortly and the 5-of-a-kind pays are 200 coins (or 5x our 40-coin stake) for the Princess, 150 coins for the Warhorse, 100 for the Golden Helmet or Chest and 50 for the Vase, Cup, Lyre or Scroll. There is a Golden Shield on reel 1 and as long as the Colossal King Wilds don't appear on the grid when it lands, it will apply a random multiplier to any wins in view of either 2, 3, 5 or even 10x.
King of Macedonia is a giant stacked and colossal 2x5 Wild appearing separately on reels 2+3 and 4+5. You'll see it slowly spin past on each spin and although not a multiplying Wild it is good news when landing not just for the potential wins it can create, but you need it to trigger what can potentially be an equally colossal bonus round!
King free spins
So we need the bonus Golden Shield to appear on reel 1 and any part of either or both Colossal King Wilds on the remaining reels. This critically important for the round's potential, as the triggering Wild positions will freeze for the duration of the 8 free games you will be granted. I'm sure you can imagine the prospect for your winnings should you trigger the feature with both the full Colossal Kings; 8 spins will be had with reels 2 to 5 all Wild and a guaranteed return of hundreds times your bet. You cannot retrigger them though as the bonus Shield only appears in the base game.
King of Macedonia slot is loud, spectacular and highly volatile with the feature hard to trigger and base game wins not too large most of the time. A large chunk of the game's 92.10-96.10% RTP is undoubtedly allocated to the feature which is where you're most likely to hit those potentially large wins. The graphics and animations are good though and you can get the occasional result with the Bonus Golden Shield appearing on reel one with favourable winning lines over the rest of the grid, especially if seeing the 5 or 10x multiplier on it. If history is to be believed, taxes were quite heavy in the Hellenic lands conquered by Macedonia so you may find your gold could well flow just one way as well...
