Rome: The Golden Age Slot (NetEnt)

Rome: The Golden Age Slot (NetEnt)The Ancient civilisation remains one of the most confusing empires for the modern world.

On one side we have the values and morals that left behind beautiful artwork, architecture, and deep literature that has stood the test of time.

On the other side are amphitheatres that demonstrate high levels of violence, a thing that is still confusing by present-day standards.

To the Ancient Romans, this was their usual way of life, and they did not find anything unusual with it.

Today, we will delve deeper in this world of battle and blood, in this slot by NetEnt that is titled, Rome: The Golden Age.

Game Set-Up

The set u is the usual 5 reels, with u to 20 pay lines.  I’m in love with the beautifully decorated reels that play host to several features.

These features include free spins bonus games, Wilds, Increasing Multiplier, Collect Symbols, Random Wilds, among others.

Betting and Prizes

Using my smartphone, I was able to place bets with as little as $0.10 per spin. If you love higher risks, you will be happy to know that NetEnt allows up to $50 per spin.

Top payouts can go to as high as 100,000x the stake.

Volatility shifts from low-high, but the fair RTP of 96.06%, keeps it in check.

Rome: The Golden Age Features

NetEnt does not leave anything to chance when it comes to game features. Rome: The Golden Age is rich in features with the most notable being the Frame Collection system, free spins, and multipliers.

Each time Golden Age symbols show up, the frame will “note” their position. Randomly, a wild can be transformed into a Rome symbol, which will then activate its frame.

The Rome symbol may become a wild, and if used in a win, the frame will be removed.

Another advantage of the Golden Age symbols is the free spins. Each time the symbols land, you get between 1-4 points. These are collected into a progress bar that lies above the reels.

After you hit 200 point, the Free Spins Multiplier will increase in number. This is sequence that this increase follows: x1, x2, x3, x5, x7, x10, x12, x15, x20, x30, x40, x50, x75, x100, x200, x300, x500, x750, x1000.

You can trigger the free spins by landing at least 3 scatter symbols on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th reel.

Theme and Design

As part of the low-value symbols, Rome: The Golden Age uses 10-A symbols, However, the higher rewarding ones include eagles, tigers, swords, rings, and golden helmets.

I also enjoyed the beautiful graphics and easy design that the developer has gone with.


NetEnt hasn’t developed a slot like Rome: The Golden Age in recent times, but they did a splendid job.

The developer may have borrowed the layout from Jumanji, but Rome: The Golden Age offers an entirely different experience.

I love the fact that despite it being a med-high volatility game, it offers lots of action that keeps you glued to the screen.

The top payout, decent RTP, and high payout potential make Rome: The Golden Age the ideal free slots for all levels of players.
