Ares is a slot game based around the story of the ancient city of Troy that has been produced by Real Time Gaming. The tale of Troy has been included in other slot games before, so it opens up the question as to whether or not this version does enough to stand out all on its own or if it’s a carbon copy of what’s already out there.
Overview of Ares
This particular game is set across a 5×3 reel interface while the graphics are big and bold in nature. The reels are set against a wall that’s going to represent the walls of Troy while you are also going to be given a total of 243 different ways to win. With so many options, it does mean there’s a good chance of you being successful with your spins. The symbols here focus on armor and the normal J, Q, K, and A symbols that you see elsewhere. However, even with these symbols they are designed in a classical way.
How to Play Ares
With so many paylines it makes it easier when it comes to playing the game. Your main focus will be on choosing the level of your bet, and this changes via the arrows around the betting button. The total is clearly displayed, so there’s no way you can end up betting more than you intended. Aside from that, you can then go ahead and hit either the autoplay or the normal spin and see how the reels fall for you.
Bonus Features for Ares
The main focus when it comes to the bonus is on both the wild and scatter symbols. This time, the wild symbol is the warrior while the scatter is represented by the Trojan horse. If you land the wild symbols, then they will substitute any symbol aside from the scatter.
If you land three different scatter symbols across the reels, then you get to access the special bonus round. Here, you are able to click on shields behind which there are prizes. Click the wrong one, and the bonus round ends, so how long the bonus round lasts is going to all be down to luck. Click on all of the shields, and you then have another bonus where you can click on helmets to find additional bonuses.
Betting and Payouts for Ares
The minimum bet for this slot has been set at $0.25 but the maximum is a much higher bet of $125. Also, the maximum jackpot is set at $6250 which is lower than you may find elsewhere, but it does mean there’s a reasonable sum of money to be won.
Ares isn’t unique in its theme or approach, but it’s still a perfectly reasonable slot game by RTG that is up to the kind of standard you expect from them. Also, the minimum bet is low enough for anybody to try the game and to see if having 243 different paylines is going to make a difference to how often you are then going to enter the winning circle.
