Aureus Slot (Microgaming)
Aureus is a term used to refer to a gold coin of ancient Rome. Crazy Tooth Studio, in partnership with Microgaming, has created a slot game based on this ideology.
It is a pretty interesting game that gives players a very extraordinary gaming experience.
The title suggests some use of coins and you will get pretty of them via an innovative Coin Verge mechanic, a concept that allows you to collect them.
Join me as I share my playing journey with this slot machine:
One of the things that I find quite unusual is the unorthodox grid that the developers have used!
Aureus is set on 3 reels with just 5 rows. It has a pretty unique design and among the present features are Free Spins, Respins, Multiplier Symbols, and Coin verge, among others.
Betting and Prizes
Aureus offers a fair playing ground, and you can play with as low as $0.20 to as high as $80 per spin.
It’s a medium volatility slot that offers a decent RTP of 96%. However, as an experienced gamer, I’m not quite satisfied with its payout potential as the slot can only offer up to 2,431 xs the stake per spin.
This slot offers some geta features and one such is the CoinVerge. It works by creating some collection area, and this happens by opening and closing the brackets that appear within the same row on the slot’s grid.
Afterwards, the collected symbols will pay you according to their value.
Random and extras are the other great feature that Microgaming has gone with. While spinning in the base area, you may randomly get one or more symbols (Multiplier Coin, Upgrade Coin, Collect Column Coin, Respin Coin, or Collect All Coin).
If any of these land in the collection area, an equivalent win will land your way. This is how it works:
Multiplier Coin – will multiply the prizes by 2x-5x.
Upgrade Coin – will upgrades both low and medium coins into high paying ones, with an additional high-value coin.
Collect Column Coin - assembles all coin symbols in their particular reel.
Collect All Coin – collects the entire coin symbols appearing on the grid.
Respins Coin – rewards you with either 2, 3, or 5 Respins.
The Lightning Feature is the last of the features, and you can trigger it randomly within any level of the game.
Theme and Design
I love the unique design that the two partners have come up with. Instead of going for the typical Roman settings, Aureus takes you to Mount Olympus, a dwelling that was inhibited by the Roman gods.
Among the symbols that I spotted on this title are coins, and the Greek gods.
With this title, Red Tiger offers dynamic and unique gameplay that can be enjoyed by all levels of players.
The CoinVerge mechanic is particularly interesting, and it breaks the monotony of using common features.
However, if you are looking for huge wins, then this slot might disappoint you.
