Treasures of Troy slot machine review, strategy, and bonus to play online
The City of Troy was a hot topic in Homer’s epic poem recounting a tale of love and war. The city was besieged for years before cunning Greek warriors breached the walls hidden inside a colossal wooden horse. They jumped out, slaughtered a few people to show they meant business, and rescued the beautiful Helen (daughter of Zeus – and you wouldn’t want to argue with him).
IGT, which likes to dabble in these historically themed slots, has done a superb job of capturing the spirit of Ancient Greece with the Treasures of Troy slot at TwinSpires Casino. While the graphics and sound are fairly basic by modern standards, the gameplay has plenty of fighting spirit, with multiway prize action the key feature.
How to Play Treasures of Troy Slots
The five-reel, four-row Treasures of Troy slot machine is best played with larger stakes so that you not only activate the 40 paylines, but in addition, you switch on the 1,024 ways to win in what is better known as multiway action. In multiway, you can match symbols that fall anywhere on successive reels, from right to left.
Betting with the full 40 paylines and the multiway action means you can win plenty of times and soon turn a profit. But if luck is against you, just as it was when the Trojans thought they were getting a nice gift horse, you can quickly burn through some cash. All things in moderation is the way to go.
The symbols in Treasures of Troy slots begin with the lower-paying card symbols of J, Q, K, and A, all of which are decorated in gold. Next up the pay scale comes Achilles’ sword, then his helmet, Paris of Troy, King Menelaus, and Helen of Troy.
As usual, there is a Wild symbol, represented by the Treasures of Troy logo. It substitutes for all others, except the bonus symbol, and appears on reels 2 through 5.
If you wish to win some healthy prizes, you will want to get through to the bonus round, offering free spins. The bonus symbol is the wooden horse, and it appears on the center reel only (reel 3). You win free spins in this way:
- 2 bonus symbols = 10 free spins
- 3 bonus symbols = 15 free spins
- 4 bonus symbols = 20 free spins
You can spark more free spins if more Bonus symbols land during the feature, up to a maximum of 130. Not only is getting free spins as beautiful as Helen herself, but the symbols also change to a more luxurious tone, and their value increases, meaning you win more. For example, five Achilles’ sword symbols are worth just 100 coins in the base game, but 500 during the lucrative free spins feature.
The return to player percentage (RTP) of Treasures of Troy is 95.03%, meaning it’s not going to pay out as much as other slots. Most will leave with relatively little to show for their session, but the lucky few will breach the city walls and claim big rewards from the free spins round.
