Alexander of Macedonia

Spielo’s latest video slot, available in both the prodiGi Vu upright and Vu Slant cabinets, is distinguished by its enhanced free-spin bonus event and the ability of players to choose the volatility of their bonus.

Alexander of Macedonia places the heroic Greek theme into a 50-line game with high hit frequency and low volatility. Most winning combinations in the base game pay for lining up two to five symbols, an expanded pay schedule that makes the most of the 50-line setup.

The primary game also features random expanding wild symbols on all reels—another reason the hit frequency on the slot is high, and another appeal to players.

When the main Alexander of Macedonia Bonus is triggered, it returns a scatter pay of five times the bet and goes to a second screen that allows the player to choose the volatility of a free-spin bonus, but instead of the usual number-of-spins/multiplier combinations, the choices offer combinations of a number of free spins combined with various numbers of entire wild reels.

The lowest-volatility choice is 15 free spins with Reel No. 3 wild. This is presented against 10 free games with Reels 2 and 4 wild; and five free games with reels 1, 3 and 5 wild—the highest-volatility choice and, with the first reel wild, the one with the most potential for big wins.
