Theme

As an experienced video gamer, I know well that a games interface, how it loads and how the music fits in can be just as much an influence on enjoyment as the gameplay and features. Broadly speaking I feel the same about pokies games and really enjoy a game that feels well put together in all ways, I am a keen fan of iSoftBet’s officially licensed Rambo pokies for exactly this reason.

I also like how it displays the two main bonus features to you on the next screen before you enter the game and that you can disable that for future game loads with one click.

The music too is right on key, there is a little ambient background noise which seems to be the sound of a Roman market, not intrusive but definitely when combined with the light lute playing it adds to an enveloping ambiance. On the subject of nice touches – The music volume can be adjusted by level for effects/music/overall which although a common option on video games is rare in even the latest online pokies.

The game is kept simple enough to play with uncluttered symbolism, the stock A-9 playing card icons are wrapped in laurel for low-value prizes and 7x game themed higher value Roman symbols from an Amphora to twin Gladius feature above them, with what would appear to be renderings of Cleopatra and Mark Anthony forming the most lucrative of all.

The gold Eagle of a Roman Legion forms the pokies single Wild and the ruins of the famous Coliseum are used as the scatter symbol. The symbols are all very well rendered and give the game that high-end quality feel, even the pay-lines themselves are denoted by Roman numerals.

Features

Does the gameplay stand up or this just a pretty game? I’ll leave each to their own to decide on that by giving you a rundown of what is on offer on this 5 reel video pokies 9 active pay-lines.

Starting with the basics – you can bet a max of 1 coin per line, coin values range from 0.01 to 1 credit so max bet is 9 credits total – not one for the high rollers and there is no progressive jackpot available here through the max win is a healthy 1800 credits from the scatter combinations and up to 4950 in the bonus round – fairly large pay-outs when you consider the max bet.

The Imperial Eagle Wild replaces all symbols except for the bonus icons and the coliseum scatter, which in this game serves as a multiplier rather than a bonus trigger as it would in most modern pokies. 2x scatters anywhere on the reels doubles your line bet and a full row of 5x grants you an epic 200x your wager!

Summary

iSoftBet seems to get better and better with every new game release, Luxury Rome HD emphasizes its graphical intentions in the title and doesn’t disappoint in the delivery.

The gameplay options are wide and varied providing, hopefully, at least, loads of entertainment.

I can forgive the lack of a gamble feature however the 9 pay-lines do feel out of place on a game this well produced and the max bet is very low, it really may have benefited a few more lines and a little more bet adjustment to appeal to a larger player base.
