Relax Gaming unleashes the power of ancient Rome in its July 2020 release of Marching Legions. It comes packed with nudges, free spins and Marching Re-Spins. Conquer the reels for 10,000x bet!
Relax Gaming sets the scene with marching cartoon-like legionaries below the sweltering sun and scavenging birds circling overhead. The stone courtyard, with marble tiles, form the 5×3 (reels/rows) playing area with 243 ways to win.
The top-paying symbol is an almost adorable legionary who can create bet ways with just 2 symbols. A banner, a sword and a laurel are the medium-paying symbols followed by 3 low-paying icons representing the power of ancient Rome. Although the slot’s artwork is designed not to be taken too seriously, the tone set by the epic soundtrack is anything but amusing.
Re-Spin and Collect
Marching Re-Spins is triggered by a full stack of the legionary symbol on any reel. These legionaries transform into a sticky Marching Stack that shifts to the left by one reel on every re-spin until dropping off the 1st reel. During this time, it is possible to land another stack of legionaries to keep the march going.
Play the free spins feature in waves of stacked legionaries on the right-most reel that shift towards the left on each spin with the chance to land more. A ‘collect’ symbol that may appear on the 5th reel collected in sets of three will trigger the next wave of legionaries, and you begin with one of these symbols at the start of the feature. Each wave that is triggered adds an extra stack of legionaries to the right-most reel.
In the absence of any marching stacks and presence of 2+ partially stacked marching stacks, the nudge feature may kick in to nudge the missing legionaries onto the reels to kick-start the re-spins.
The Buy Feature
If you’re tired of waiting around for the free spins to trigger, you can buy into the free spins for a price of 120x your bet. The feature has a healthy RTP of 97.13%, slightly lower than outside of the feature.
Marching Legions: Slot Summary
You can join the field of battle in Marching Legions slot using Android/iOS smartphone platforms or Windows desktop with bets of 0.10 – 100. Outside of the Buy Feature, the game has a high RTP of 98.12%.
Not surprising given the 10,000x maximum payout, the game has high volatility so unless you crave the high risk and high reward, you may want to stick to low-medium.
The game revolves around one symbol (a legionary), and there are no other special symbols like wilds, scatters or bonuses, which some might find rather dull.
Fortunately, this symbol appears regularly, so the drop rate on the re-spins can be decent, with the nudge feature a little less so and free spins the lowest. We found that the hit rate on 20x-40x wins was respectable, and the potential is there for much higher.
