While the average player can only afford to stay in budget accommodation in Rome, iSoftBet have attempted to transport you to a realm of luxury with this pokie – except you’ll be headed back into Roman times. This is another Ancient Roman themed pokie; we take a look at the format, features, and gameplay to determine if this pokie is worth our money.

Based in Ancient Roman times, we follow powerful gladiators in order to unveil the wealth hidden within the reels. As the title suggests, the graphics are in HD quality.

Additionally, there are just nine paylines across five reels, making the maximum bet quite small.

There’s quite a tranquil soundtrack attached but you can mute this, along with change the sound effects and the general volume level, in the top right hand corner of the screen.
Additionally, iSoftBet are known for adding small progressive jackpots on their pokies but this one doesn’t feature one, but there is up to 9000 coins on offer at the maximum bet ($9 per spin) and 4950 coins in the Wheel Bonus at max bet.
Luxury Rome HD symbols
There are a number of symbols involved in Luxury Rome HD with the lowest paying symbols represented by the A, K, Q, J and 10 symbols – each draped in vines.
The middle paying symbols includes the swords, the golden goblet, the ring, the golden vines, and the gold coins. The highest paying symbols, excluding the Scatter and Wild symbols, are the male and female gladiators. While the paytable offers the Roman numeral value, it also offers duodecimal values to know how much you can win.
The Scatter, Wild, and other additional symbols is where the pokie becomes unique as the usual symbols we see activating bonus rounds take a step out of the ring and other symbols are added to perform their functions instead.
Scatter: The Scatter symbol is the Colosseum and pays the highest possible payout in the base game if you spin five of these (1800 coins).
Wild: The Wild is the golden bird statue and pays the same as the male gladiator (1000 coins). It also substitutes for every symbol except the Scatter and two extra Bonus symbols to create a winning payline.
Instant Bonus Symbol: A unique addition to the reels is the Instant Bonus symbol, which is the golden gladiator on the horse, activates the Instant Bonus round via three, four, or five of the symbols appearing on the reels.
Wheel Bonus Symbol:: Another unique addition to the reels is the Wheel Bonus symbol, which is the golden helmet, and three, four, or five of these activates the Wheel Bonus.
Instant Bonus and the Wheel Bonus
There are two unique Bonus features available on Luxury Rome HD.
Instant Bonus: Trigger the Instant Bonus via three, four, or five Instant Bonus symbols and here the symbols will turn into Click Me symbols which you need to click on to reveal a random number of free spins – from one up to 10 and a random multiplier for the free spins, from 5x right up to 50x.
Wheel Bonus: Trigger the Wheel Bonus via three, four, or five Wheel Bonus symbols where you spin a wheel to win a random number of coins – up to 4950 coins.
At first the theme really put us off since we have seen so many Ancient Roman themed pokies before. However iSoftBet excel at HD graphics so we knew it would be a smooth gaming experience.
The maximum bet is quite small, but this means we can win the non-progressive jackpot with a smaller bankroll than what the usual maximum bet requires.
The way you trigger the free spins is quite unique and makes gameplay a lot more interesting if you are a seasoned online pokies player. It didn’t take us long to trigger the Instant Bonus where we scored a 21x multiplier and five free spins.
The Wheel Bonus was a bit harder to trigger when we played – we even managed to trigger the Instant Bonus feature again – but when we did we scored 333 coins, a huge win since we were playing the max bet.
Overall this pokie is worthy of a spin even if you think the theme has been done before.
