Low value symbols are represented by five different shaped and coloured gemstones. If the right amount of matching combinations land on the same spin then these symbols can offer between x0.25 and x3 the player’s bet.
Swords and shields depict the medium value symbols, offering between x1.5 and x7.5 the player’s preferred stake.
High value symbols come in the form of chariots and helmets. These symbols can offer between x2.5 and x20, depending on the amount of winning combinations that land on a single spin.
Ares scatters can also drop into play, triggering 15 free spins if four or more scatters land on the reels at once. These scatters will also provide a payout between x3 and x100, depending on the amount of scatters that land on the same spin.
Finally, four golden bomb symbols are available. If a cascading win occurs while a bomb is on the reels, this bomb will remove non-winning symbols from the reels to make way for new symbols and increase the win potential.
This is a scatter-paying slot title, meaning that symbols can pay anywhere on the board as long as there are a minimum number of identical symbols on the reel set, which in this case is a minimum of eight.
Cascading wins also occur, removing winning symbols after they have applied their payout to make way for new symbols to potentially form new scatter-pays.
A multiplier meter is active above the reels, applying a multiplier to any wins that occur after a certain amount of symbols have been involved in a number of scatter-pays and cascading wins.
When 20 symbols have been involved in wins, a multiplier of x2, x3 or x4 will be applied to the entire payout for that same spin. If another 30 symbols have been removed from wins, 50 in total, then a multiplier between x5 and x8 can be applied to the payout.
After that, players can collect another 50 symbols, 100 in total, to reveal a multiplier between x9 and x15 to be applied to the win amount.
During the free spins feature, this multiplier meter is enhanced to offer up to six multipliers, ranging from x2 to x4 if 15 symbols are collected and building up to between x150 and x500 if 225 symbols are collected.
Each bomb symbol removes symbols in different ways, taking out symbols horizontally, vertically, both-ways diagonally or both-ways vertically and horizontally.
Players can buy the free spins bonus for the price of x100 their stake.

Irina Cornides, Chief Operating Officer at Pragmatic Play, commented: “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 x10,000, Sword of Ares will provide some surprising rewards throughout.”
