Let’s start things off with the basic setup of this game. Leonidas consists of a 3 X 5 reel slot and forty fixed paylines. Minimum wager would start at a mere 10p and it goes all the way to £10 per spin. The reels are ornate, keeping in theme with the bronze-age look of this slot with lots of fiery animations. One thing to note is the epic background music that really gets you in the mood for battle.
Symbols include portraits of the man himself, King Leonidas and his legendary war artifacts as well as the card symbols 9 through ace on ancient Greek parchment. Last but not least, there’s the beautiful Queen Gorgo symbol, Leonidas’ beloved Queen which triggers several bonus features. We’ll talk more on that later.
The spin animations are also pretty exciting as some of the Spartan soldiers heroically take an arrow to the heart for a noble cause while others bravely defend with their shields. With enough Spartan WILDs you can hopefully get a big win in which Leonidas yells “Spartaaaa!!!”

First in order to get the Spartans to draw their shields, you need the close-up portrait symbol of Leonidas to fill up reels one and two, and the process will continue for the remaining reels if Leonidas stacks land full. No worries if that doesn’t happen to be the case as you get a group Leonidas win for at least two on a payline.
Of course, Leonidas would not be complete without its randomly occurring bonus which can happen during any spin when six or more Leonidas Icons spin-in on 6 random positions on the reels. You will be awarded line wins based on how many Leonidas symbols are part of the win.
As per usual, the purple “WILD” symbol that pops up can act as a substitute for all symbols except for the Queen Gorgo symbol. It can appear on reels two and onwards only.
We saved the best feature for last, which is the bonus triggered as a result of the Queen Gorgo bonus symbol as mentioned earlier. Landing two Queen Gorgos on reels three and five triggers a Free Spin Battle.
This means you get to spin one more time for a chance to unlock a variety of bonuses: 3, 4 or 5 extra spins, or enjoy a locked Wild Reel on reels 2, 3, 4 or 5. Or, you could also be awarded two individual Wild positions and even get five times the amount of your credit award – an extremely attractive feature if you ask us.
Now here comes the fun part: the Free Spin Battle Spartan Wilds. When you spin, any Leonidas portraits on the reels will be attacked by arrows and the soldiers that survive the attack will turn the symbols into locked wilds which can definitely maximize your win.

One of the best things about Leonidas King of the Spartans is its soundtrack and its variety of sound effects – be it the clashing of swords or occasional quotes from Leonidas, a great amount of detail was put into the game audio.
We’d also like to show some appreciation for the detailed graphics and animation as well – the developers aimed for a more realistic feel. Leonidas runs smooth across all devices on various platforms and amidst all the visual and audio detail, its loading time was faster than expected.
Let’s face it, it’s not often that you find mobile slot games that are historically accurate. Incredible Technologies surely did their research on this one – and for history buffs like me, that sort of thing matters and positively affects how I enjoy the game. Factor in the bonuses as the cherry on top and you get a pretty solid slot game.
Leonidas King of the Spartans was actually a physical slot machine game before Incredible Technologies decided to convert it into a mobile slot game. Truly, the legacy of Sparta lives on.
Leonidas King of the Spartans can be an easy game to stake if you play your cards right. You can enjoy a minimum bet of just 0.8 coins a spin, or a maximum bet of 50 coins a spin. Whichever amount you decide to choose, my advice would be to take as much advantage as you can of the free spin rounds and get as many combos as possible. For SPARTA!!!
