On May 31st, Push Gaming, a London-based HTML5 game developer, unveiled their latest creation, 10 Swords. This captivating slot game takes players on a journey to Ancient Rome, immersing them in the thrilling atmosphere of the Colosseum. Known for its brutal gladiator battles and clashes with formidable animals, the Colosseum serves as the backdrop for this visually stunning game.
True to its name, 10 Swords centers around epic battles, offering players a glimpse into the entertaining pastimes of Ancient Rome. The game features a serene setting with lush natural surroundings and majestic white pillars, creating a harmonious ambiance. Moreover, players can enjoy the game on any device, providing flexibility and convenience.
To secure a victory, players must align a combination of three or more matching symbols on adjacent reels, starting from the leftmost reel. The game employs a dynamic 5×3 grid with 20 Paylines, ensuring an engaging gameplay experience.
The symbols in 10 Swords comprise both low-value and high-value icons. The low-value symbols include J, Q, K, and A, while the medium-value symbols consist of green, blue, and purple objects. The high-value bonus symbols depict characters in green, blue, and gold. The rewards escalate based on the symbol combinations achieved. Five low-value bonus symbols yield a 4x multiplier, increasing to 10x to 15x for five medium-value symbols. For a combination of five high-value bonus symbols, players can receive a substantial 30x to 40x multiplier on their initial bet. Notably, the game features additional symbols such as a shield scatter symbol and sword symbols that can appear during spins.
10 Swords boasts a low-to-medium volatility level, offering a default Return to Player (RTP) rate of 96.41% and a maximum win potential of 5000x the player’s bet. However, players can further enhance their chances of winning the ultimate prize by activating the Ante Bet feature. By doing so, they increase their odds to 1 in 606,060 spins to achieve the maximum win. Without activating this feature, the chance diminishes to 1 in 934,579 spins.
Various exciting features:
Wild Symbol: Represented by the golden eagle-adorned W, the Wild acts as a substitute for other paying symbols, excluding the Scatter and Sword symbols. Additionally, it offers the same payout as the highest-paying symbol type, opening up opportunities for additional winning combinations.
Sword Symbol: While spinning the reels, players may encounter sword symbols scattered across the grid. If four or more sword symbols land simultaneously, players are instantly rewarded. The number of sword symbols collected determines the reward, ranging from 2x to an impressive 5000x the initial bet. As the number of sword symbols increases, the prize ladder escalates, intensifying the excitement.
Free Spins: Landing a combination of three or more scatter symbols triggers the Free Spins feature. Upon activation, players receive a generous allocation of 8, 10, or 12 free spins, depending on the number of scatter symbols involved. Additionally, when achieving a combination of four or five scatters, two or four low-value symbol types transform into sword symbols right from the start, amplifying the winning potential.
During the Free Spins feature, collected scatter symbols contribute to a meter on the left side of the screen. Upon gathering four scatter symbols, a low-value symbol transforms into a sword symbol. With each subsequent transformation of a low-value symbol, players earn additional free spins—four, three, three, and two free spins for the first, second, third, and fourth transformations, respectively. This feature empowers players to convert any low-value symbol into a sword symbol through the accumulation of scatter symbols.
Ante Bet: Players have the option to activate the Ante Bet feature by paying an additional 20% of their bet. Once triggered, this feature enhances the likelihood of obtaining scatter symbols and triggers the bonus game more frequently, augmenting the overall excitement and potential rewards.
Bonus Buy: For players eager to access the Free Spins feature immediately, the Bonus Buy option offers a shortcut. Activating this feature requires a payment equivalent to 50 times the initial bet, granting players the necessary three or more scatter symbols to trigger the Free Spins feature instantly. However, it’s worth noting that the RTP during this feature is 96.75%.
George Fil, the Group Managing Director at Push Gaming, expressed his enthusiasm for the launch, stating, “10 Swords exemplifies our commitment to providing diverse and captivating games to our global audience.
