Augustus is the title of a 5-reel video slot by Neon Valley Studios and Microgaming that you can play with stakes of between 20p and £100 per spin.
The Augustus slot (which is compatible with desktops and mobile devices) is based on the life and achievements of the Roman emperor, Augustus who ruled Ancient Rome between 27 BC and 14 AD.
The glory of Rome could be yours when you play the Augustus slot game at Mad About Slots. In fact, there are prizes of up to 1,000 times your total bet to play for!
Plus, the game is filled with some fantastic special features such as wild reels and a free spins bonus that offers you three exciting options.
The Augustus slot game by Neon Valley Studios and Microgaming is dedicated to the mighty Roman emperor, Augustus, and you have the chance to meet the legend in person every time you play the game.
The history buffs among you will love how the game’s developer has lovingly recreated the city of Rome in its heyday.
Just beyond the reels, there’s a massive temple which glitters in the midday sun. Smaller temples and public buildings sit next to it, and the majestic music that forms the soundtrack really helps to make you feel as though you’re stood right in the middle of it all.
The paytable symbols range from the Emperor, a gladiator, and an eagle to playing card symbols, coins, and Roman artefacts.
The arrows next to the “Bet” area at the bottom of the screen let you increase or decrease your stake between spins.
The wild symbol in the Augustus slot is particularly powerful as it can be used in a number of different ways.
Firstly, it can grant up to 1,000x your stake for a 5-of-a-kind wild win. Secondly, it can create other winning combinations by acting as a substitute for the game’s other symbols (not the scatter, however). Thirdly, it can land stacked on the reels as well as an individual symbol. Lastly, it can be used in the Wild Reel feature.
In August, the scatter symbol is represented by the Golden Eagle, and to access the Free Spins Bonus, you need three eagles to appear on the same spin.
The Augustus slot boasts some nifty special features.
One of our favourites is the Wild Reel feature which is initiated whenever two gold coins land on any reel. It turns the reel wild for two spins to improve your chances of creating a win.
Get three Eagle scatters on the first, third and fifth reels, and you go straight to the bonus game menu where you can choose one of the following three options:
- 25 free spins with 1 wild reel on every spin
- 8 free spins with 2 wild reels on every spin
- 2 free spins with 3 wild reels on every spin
If you land new scatter symbols on the wild reels while the bonus is active, you gain extra free spins.
