King Philip of Macedonia is a remarkable historical figure, one of the most accomplished military commanders of all time. For all that, even he would never have expected to be immortalised in a casino game!
This new video slot from IGT, The King of Macedonia, let’s you join forces with big Phil and take on the world. It’s a pretty basic game, but the symbols are artistically made and the potential cash prizes are as good as any other non-progressive game.
So, without further ado, let’s check out the game in some detail and see if it’s one King Philip would be proud of!
Symbols and Game Design
Set against a sweeping Macedonian landscape, the reels include portraits of the great king himself, his queen and horse, as well as other sundry items like a harp and an amphora. Everything is bright and colourful, all designed to appear as brush strokes from, presumably, an ancient Macedonian artist.
You can place wagers worth anywhere from 0.80 to 400 per spin. The King symbol is the game’s wild (they span two reels!) while the scatter is portrayed by his shield. Landing a scatter can induce a multiplier of up to 10x, but a wild-and-scatter combo opens the free spins rounds.
You’ll immediately earn 8 free spins with the giant wild locked in place! This means there’s a high chance of big wins during this short bonus round – exactly what you’d expect from as wealthy and successful a man as King Philip of Macedon!
