Playing the Theater of Rome is fairly easy. The button with the indicated bet value and the button labelled Max can be used to choose the bet. With the Max button, you can place a wager between 0.10 and 20, or you can use the other option to leap to the maximum value of 20. It appears that the game is using 10 coins for a setup with 7 lines.
Behind the reels, which are encased by a wonderful stone-effect frame, are columns, statues, and temples, as you might expect from a slot machine themed around ancient Rome.
When a line of matching symbols appears, you earn a multiple of your bet. The traditional 9, 10, and J playing card symbols pay 1x, 5x, and 20x when three, four, or five of a kind are seen.
The K, Q, and A all pay up to 25 times. Even though playing card symbols are found on many slot machines, Merkur has made an effort with them by placing each one next to a laurel wreath to give them a faintly Roman appearance.
The picture symbols with the highest payouts are a silver arm guard and some boots, each of which is worth up to 30 times the wager, while a shield and a helmet are each worth up to 50 times. Through offering by far the largest prizes, the lion charges into action. You earn 5x, 20x, or 200x your wager if this creature appears on three, four, or all five reels on a payline.
The optional gamble feature present on the majority of Merkur slots is present in the Theatre of Rome slot. Every time you win, you have three options. Start the ladder game, play a double-or-nothing card colour bet, or take the reward.
