This June release from Microgaming and Spin Play Games takes us back in time to the heyday of the Roman Empire. Are you ready to join the legion, don your armor, and adventure across the known world?
Being new to the online slot scene, Spin Play Games is still finding its feet and own unique design style. Roman Power is played on a 5×4 grid across 20 paylines. The high volatility makes payouts less frequent but with a potential win of 4,000x your bet if you do win, you’ll win big.

Symbols and Winning Combinations of Roman Power Slot
Roman Power was developed by Spin Play Games exclusively for Microgaming. This small studio has crafted a slot that is simple in both design and gameplay, as well as light on features.
The backdrop to Roman Power is the sun setting over a body of water, although you wouldn’t be able to tell this without paying attention when the slot first loads. The background is mostly made up of shades of red and orange, with clouds drifting lazily across the top of the screen.
The 5×3 reel grid takes up most of the space on the screen and is illustrated to a high standard. The reels are framed by a classic Roman marble building complete with Ionic columns. The rich burgundy colored reels house eleven beautifully drawn symbols, ten are regular, and the last is wild. They are:
- Low worth = A, K, Q, J, 10
- Medium worth = Crossed swords, Bracers, Shield
- High worth = Armor, Helmet
- Wild = Roman soldier
Roman themed slots are always a hit. The theme is very popular among slot developers and you can find an overabundance of them online. As well designed as certain aspects of this slot are, there is nothing new or unique about it.
On the lowest betting level, three 10s landing in a winning combination will win you $0.10 whereas five helmets will win you $2.50
Bonus Features of Roman Power Slot
Microgaming are well known for releasing slots that include several and, often, innovative bonus features. Roman Power bucks this trend by being incredibly light on features.
The first feature is the Expanding Wild Roman soldier symbol. The wild can be substituted for all other symbols. Wilds will expand to cover an entire reel if there is a winning combination or one will be made by the Expanded Wild.
The second, and final, feature can only be triggered when there is one or more Expanded Wild symbol on the reels. This feature is the Power Multipliers. Expanded Wilds have a chance to trigger a multiplier of x2, x3, x5, x7, or x10.
Roman Power also includes a quick spin mode. With this mode enabled all reel animations are switched off, winning combination animations are also disabled. Quick spin mode is great for playing on a mobile device as it can help to conserve battery power. It is also a good choice when you want to have a few spins but don’t have a lot of time.
You will also find a help icon in the top left corner. Clicking on this neat little feature opens a new window full of additional information about the slot, its options, betting levels, as well as other useful information.
In our opinion, there were odd decisions made during the development of Roman Power. Usually, high volatility slots incorporate interesting gameplay and/or a variety of bonus features to keep players engaged. Roman Power does none of this and the potential payout of up to 4,000 times the bet is not enough to draw the attention of slot fans.
If you’re a fan of the Romans, we recommend playing the free version otherwise give this slot a miss.
