Treasures of Troy is a five-reel online video slot inspired by the legendary Trojan War of Ancient Greece. This is the tale of the brave but ultimately fallible Achilles; the beautiful Helen of Troy, whose face is famously said to have launched a thousand ships; and the infamous Trojan horse that finally doomed the city of Troy to destruction.
A Slot Straight out of Ancient Greece
The Treasures of Troy slot renders onto the reels the epic story in colourful animated detail. The reels are cast in a stone structure with an ornate pediment and might pillars reminiscent of the iconic Parthenon.
Significant symbols on the Treasures of Troy slot include Helen of Troy in a striking golden head piece, Achilles’ plumed helmet, the fateful Trojan horse, a Greek soldier, the Treasures of Troy logo, a sword and golden scabbard, and Helen’s lover Paris. The game also features the standard high-value playing card symbols, elaborately stylised with gold detail to match the theme.
Larger Four-Row Format
Unlike just about all other online video slots, Treasures of Troy has four rows, instead of the customary. This five-by-four layout means that each spin produces 20 different symbols as opposed to just 15.
MultiWay Xtra Paylines and 1024 Ways to Win
IGT has also done away with normal payline for Treasures of Troy, which operates according to the 1024-ways-to-win system. This vast number of paylines is enabled because paylines do not only operate horizontally, from left to right, but also vertically, up and down the reels . As a result, matching symbols need only appear anywhere on four or five of the reels to create what IGT calls a MultiWay Xtra payout.
Such Treasures of Troy payouts are calculated by adding up the matching symbols in each column and then multiplying all the column values by each other.
The Treasures of Troy Logo is Wild
If players land the Treasures of Troy logo wild symbol, it may just help them along to complete a winning combination. That’s because the Treasures of Troy wild has the ability to stand in for any other symbol, except the Trojan horse scatter, to create wins.
The Trojan Horse Conceals Scatters
Unlike the original Trojan horse, the Trojan horse scatter symbol in Treasures of Troy really is a precious gift. Instead of an army of enemy soldiers, the Treasures of Troy Trojan horse symbol is hiding free spins.
Players are awarded free spins if two or more Trojan horse symbols appear anywhere on the centre reel. The number of free spins awarded depends on the number of scatter symbols landed as follows:
- Two scatters: 10 free spins
- Three scatters: 15 free spins
- Four scatters: 20 free spins
An advantage in the Treasures of Troy online video slot is that these free spins can be retriggered – according to the same scatter to free spins ratio. This continues until no more free spins remain or until 120 free spins in total have been played out.
