Victorious Max Game Review
If the name Victorious rings any bells, then it should, because it’s the name of NetEnt’s hit video slot that took the market by storm a few years ago. Victorious Max is that slots replacement, and while it doesn’t exactly turn the whole thing upside down it certainly adds a lucrative bonus round, which fans and non-fans alike will enjoy. So are you ready for a trip back to the glories of Rome, or is this slot stuck in the past? Let’s take a look in our Victorious Max review.
The setting of the Victorious Max slot game is no mystery, with all the usual regalia you’d expect of Ancient Rome. Roman legions flank both sides of the reels, while a variety of Roman soldiers in warlike poses make up the high value symbols, with Caesar himself at the top. It’s a little disappointing that the low value symbols are formed of the generic 9 – A card suits, but even these are picked out in golden Roman script. The graphics are quite cool, making use of a stylised comic book look, and the animations take the form of short, frenetic cutscenes reminiscent of anime titles.
This game employs a pretty standard five reel, three row layout and 243 ways to win, and there’s nothing complicated about how you make your wins. The wild symbol, the eagle, substitutes for other symbols while the scatter is represented by a golden laurel wreath. The betting limits are pretty generous, stretching from ₹18 all the way to ₹9222, so there’s something here for both low and high rollers. Caesar is the highest paying symbol, topping out at 5,000x your stake, while even the lowest value symbol pays at 600x, so combining that with the high betting limits makes for a pretty lucrative game! This is borne out of the RTP, which is pretty high at 96.88%.
As we said, part of this game’s appeal is its simplicity, so don’t expect to be winning any mini games or filling up meters and bars to get to the bonuses. Land five laurels and you can bag yourself 25 free spins, which is where the Max part of Victorious Max comes in. Up to now, the games have been pretty much identical, and fans of the old game may be wondering what all the fuss is about. The answer is that the free spins bonus round now comes with a 6x multiplier rather than 3x, which means the bonus round has the potential to deliver some truly massive wins. While it’s not exactly ground breaking, it’s hard to deny that double the cash is an improvement! You can also re-trigger those free spins by landing more laurel scatters, but unfortunately the extra spins don’t come with the multiplier and you have to land a whole new set in the main game to get it back.
This is a stylish and fun game that will appeal to players who have never seen the Victorious series before, but there’s not much added to this game since the first one, so people who are returning having played the original won’t find much added. What has been added is really lucrative, though, so you may want to play again just to get a shot at that 6x multiplier.
