Sword of Ares Slot (Pragmatic Play)

Sword of Ares Slot (Pragmatic Play) slotMost online casinos offer slots from top developers like Pragmatic Play, and Sword of Ares is the latest from this developer. The slot tells a story of the Greek god of war, in this case, Ares himself.

We will cover the major things about Sword of Ares that every modern slot player could be looking for:

Game Set-Up

Pragmatic Play has gone with a 6x5 reels design, with up to 20 pay lines. Inside, there are several features that you get to work with among them the free spins, tumbling reels, Bomb symbols, and a Multiplier Collection.

Betting and Prizes

When it comes to real money bets, Pragmatic Play does not disappoint. To play Sword of Ares for real money, you will need at least $0.20 on each spin that you make. If you are a high roller, then you will be happy to hear that the slot allows wagers of up to $100 per spin.

A 10,000x top jackpot is also available which is a pretty good amount, especially for a highly volatile slot like this one.

The RTP comes in several values, with the highest going at 96.40%.

Sword of Ares Slot Features

Once you have an initial combo of symbols well arranged on the slot’s reels, a Tumble mechanic will trigger. This mechanism seems to be everyone’s new favourite, and we are seeing it more and more on new slot machines.

It works by removing the winning symbols and replacing them with new ones. The process goes on and on until you have no more wins happening.

As you work with the tumbles, the slot collects the symbols that are being removed, a process which ends up boosting the multiplier (this will happen once you get to certain stages).

For 20, 50, and 100 burst symbols, the value of this multiplier keeps on growing (9x to 15x for the last stage). You will get Bomb symbols which will explode and get rid of other symbols from those reels.

With the presence of scatters, you can be sure to enjoy some free spins. I was required to land only 4 scatters on the reels to access the free spins. Depending on the number of scatters that you manage to land, Sword of Ares can reward you with up to 15 free spins.

Theme & Design

The theme here is clearly borrowed from Ancient Greek, but the major focus is on the god of war, Ares. There are several symbols (both low and high value), and for low pay, we get to work with gemstones that are set in gold (teal, pink, blue, red, and green).

For the top ones, Pragmatic Play has used shields, swords, helmets, and chariots. Ares will appear in the form of a scatter.


To break the monotony of the theme, Pragmatic Play applied lots of creativity with the features and graphics.

I also love the fact that you get various RTP features to work with which makes the slot suitable for all levels of players.
