Plataea will make you fight the battle to save Greece from the Persian armies that invade it. The game is epic and includes two bonus features to keep you winning from!
WMS is the developer of the slot, which offers moderate wins and nice features. There are Hot Hot Super Respins and Free Spins, which are the two bonus games that will ensure you larger cash rewards.
Plataea has 5 reels, 4 rows and 50 pay-lines and lets you wager from 0,40 to 200 credits per spin. The game uses the Hot Hot Super Respin engine, which gives you 2 re-spins with wild symbols. These can bring you nice payouts.
The Free Spins offer 10 rounds, during which the Hot Hot Super Respin is active. The game is based on re-spins with wild and Reveal symbols being held during them. The slot has a low to medium level of volatility and an RTP of 96%. The jackpot in it is £250,000.
Plataea has a Roman Empire theme which is styled in golden and yellow. On the 5×4 grid, you will see face symbols, golden and silver coins, war armour and warriors. The reels spin and a melodic tune plays.
During free spins, the background and grid are the same. The music will change to more epic and suitable for a battle for these rounds. The images of the symbols, which take almost all the space on the screen, are precise and clear. They are in yellow, golden and brown colour tones.
The game includes 4 low-value symbols: a golden and a silver coin, a cup and another one. Their payout is equal – 3, 4 and 5 symbols on a line give you 0.125x, 0.625x and 2.5x stake. There are 5 medium-value ones – the helmet, sword, ship, shield and a warrior in armour. They return from 0.25x to 3.75x stake for 3 to 5 symbols’ combinations.
The woman is the premium symbol with the highest payout. Land 3, 4 or 5 of it on a pay-line to win 0.875x, 1.875 or 5x stake. The wild is the face symbol that appears on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 only and substitutes for regular symbols. There is a scatter and a Reveal symbol as well.
The Reveal symbol activates the Shield feature and reveals a random symbol with a payout. When you land it on all positions of the 1st reel you win 2 re-spins and trigger the Hot Hot Super Respins. The first reel is held in position for the 1st re-spin. All wild and Reveal symbols landed during re-spin will also lock in place. After the second re-spin, the Reveal symbol will turn into a random symbol, apart from the wild or scatter. This gives you the chance to win some decent payouts and acts as a mystery symbol feature.
The Free Spins feature activates when you land 3 Coliseum scatter symbols in one round. You receive 10 free spins, during which more Reveal and wild symbols will be added to the reels. You can re-trigger the feature by hitting 3 or more scatters during the bonus round. If you succeed, you will win another 10 free spins.
The game is not bad but the payouts it offers can’t be compared with the other WMS slots. Those who have played Fire Queen, Kronos, Raging Rhino and Montezuma know their potential. Plataea has low to medium volatility and a standard Return to Player rate. The highest win you can pocket is £250,000 per spin.
