Sword of Ares is set across 6x5 reels, implementing a pays anywhere mechanic, with chariots, shields, and swords falling onto the matrix, with eight or more of these needed to trigger a win. All winning symbols are removed from play and replaced via a tumble feature with new symbols, allowing for additional wins to be formed.
A multiplier collection feature sits above the reels with three varying multipliers being unlocked when milestones of 20, 50 and 100 winning symbols are gathered. These provide a boost to all wins gained and players are aided in unlocking these multipliers by a bomb symbol. When triggered, these remove all symbols from the screen in a horizontal, vertical, cross or X pattern, with removed symbols also contributing to the multiplier collection feature.
At least four scatter symbols are needed to award entry to the free spins round with players being awarded 15 free spins. Here, the multiplier collection feature is split into six progressively higher values with up to 500x multiplier being able to be unlocked.
Sword of Ares follows in the footsteps of recent hits such as Big Bass Bonanza – Keeping It Reel, Candy Stars and Muertos Multiplier Megaways which reside amongst a collection of over 250 titles in Pragmatic Play’s award-winning games portfolio.
Irina Cornides, Chief Operating Officer at Pragmatic Play, said: “Sword of Ares provides a crescendo of excitement with bigger multipliers being unlocked through the creation of multiple wins.
“This feature is further built upon in the free spins round and with a max win of 10,000x, Sword of Ares will provide some surprising rewards throughout.”
Pragmatic Play currently produces up to seven new slot titles a month, while also delivering Live Casino and Bingo games as part of its multi-product portfolio, available through one single API.
