This new three-level progressive video slot is a sequel to one of Incredible Technologies’ most popular titles, Leonidas: King of the Spartans. The base 40-line game maintains the same game play as the original while adding three bonus events, one of which can lead to one of three progressive jackpots displayed on large overhead signage.
Two bonus shield scatter symbols on reels 2 and 4 spin to reveal one of the three main bonus events—Respin Battle, Free Spins War or Epic Progressive Bonus. If the bonus shields turn to reveal the Queen, the Respin Battle begins. Fans of the original will recognize the anticipation of this event as all Spartan symbols draw their shields to protect the Queen. Any soldier lucky enough to survive the attack is then transformed into a locked wild symbol for a re-spin.
The Free Spin War is initiated when the bonus shields reveal Xerxes. Five free spins are awarded as the Spartan Army enters the top screen of the game and the Persian Army takes over the main game screen. Before each spin, the Persian Army attacks the Spartan Army with an onslaught of arrows, and those soldiers that shield the attack successfully are added to the free-spin reels as locked wilds for the remainder of the event. As the war wages on, the Persian Army sends both Ogres and Xerxes to battle, and if either is defeated by the Spartans, a 2X wild or 3X wild is awarded, respectively.
If the two shields reveal Leonidas, it triggers the Epic Progressive Bonus. Leonidas is pitted against Persian Foot Soldiers, Ogres and Xerxes in multiple interactive one-on-one battles. Players must swipe the screen to take the enemies out, each one collecting on the top screen toward one of three progressive amounts. The end goal is to defeat Xerxes for the Grand Progressive before Leonidas’ “health meter” runs out.
