Rome Supermatch Review
Roman emperors were obsessed with power and money and this all shines through perfectly in this latest release from Games Global. It's all about the wins and they've made that clear by only really adding one feature that can be a little elusive.
Can the design and gameplay give this game more of a user-friendly touch or is it just out-and-out money, money money?
There is something a little lacklustre about this game's design. It looks like it could be set in a museum, such is the dark obscurity and lack of clarity surrounding the set. There are a couple of statues to the side of the reels and what appears to be a centurion guarding the whole affair.
As the symbols are revealed, we assume that the sound effect is meant to be a large stone turning; however, it sounds more like something dropping into a puddle. The man guarding the reels moves ever so slightly bringing a little animation to the production, but it was perhaps too little too late.
The problem with Rome Supermatch is that everything plays out on one row until you match three symbols. If that doesn't happen, then nothing really happens and that might not appeal to many players.
The Supermatch concept is a nice idea but it hasn't been executed perfectly in this design. A little tweak might be needed for this slot mechanic. That said, when it does all come together, it is extremely exciting for a few seconds and some decent wins can arrive.
The highest paying symbol offers you 1,000x your bet for 25+ of them and this is a tall order. While there is a max win of 5,000x and a fair 96% RTP, the volatility is very high and this hinders the only feature and stops the game from really unfolding and getting off the ground.
We would have liked to have seen a lot more from the design team with this production and perhaps a few adjustments to the main feature/mechanic to get this slot moving. On the plus side, there are some big wins available from time to time and once that Supermatch gets itself into gear, it is a fun ride.
