Sparta, the ancient city-state that was feared through out the Greek peninsula thousands of years ago. The name conjures battle ready warriors and violent encounters. It’s also associated with other famous names and events in history, such as Leonidas, the Trojan Horse and Helen of Troy. The online game developer Habanero has tackled this historically fascinating subject by releasing a feature rich 3D pokie enhanced with fantastic graphics.
Sparta is a pokie that puts Spartan warriors under the spotlight and which offers 5 reels and 30 paylines. The background could not be more sober with the rocky mountainside peering through haze on top of which is displayed the ‘Sparta’ logo. The symbols that form winning combinations represent various objects associated with the times and ancient Greece, namely a set of Swords, a Battleship and a Shield with a battle Helmet. The letters (A, K, Q and J) and numbers (9 and 10) are also present. Finally, the game’s Wild is represented by a Spartan Warrior and Scatters are depicted as a Catapult and the god Zeus, the latter only appearing during free spins.
Before spinning the reels in Sparta, you must first adjust the desired betting amount and the number of lines (1 to 25) on which you wish to wager. To do this, simply use the buttons on the lower area of the screen. As for winning combinations, these are obviously variable based on the symbols you line up: the numbers 9 and 10 offer up to 100 times the bet, the letters J and Q up to 125 times, the A and K up to 250 times, the Spartan shield 500 times, the 2 Swords, 1000 times and 2000 times for the Battleship, which is the game’s highest fixed payout. The 2 scatters also yield earnings; the Catapult offers 100 times your bet and the god Zeus offers up to 600 times your line bet.
