"Pompeii" brings to the players the story of a long-lost kingdom completely engulfed by volcanic lava. The betting range here is $0.20-$50 and is suitable for newcomers who desire to spend less and gain more. Though the RTP is slightly lower at 95.45%, paired with the high variance can become a major deterrent in achieving the Jackpot. The regular payouts of 0.2x-25x give an acceptable range though they also make the max win a tad difficult to achieve. The promise of 4,487x max wins along with 100x bonus multipliers, Wheel Bonus and much more may add a silver lining. Relative to a lack-lustre regular payout, the bonus rounds comprising of the Wheel Bonus and the multiplier bonuses for possible consecutive wins are a saving grace. Thankfully players can also try the Pompeii free version to align themselves with the Pompeii real money game. To summarize, regular payouts don’t ring a bell, and achieving the maximum win could be an uphill task considering the RTP and variance factors. To try something different, players can also check out Geisha for a max win of 9,000x or Queen of the Nile for bonus features like a free game selector and so on.
In this feature, any win can trigger a multiplier bonus, in the case of consecutive wins players receive a 2x bonus multiplier. This continues till the player has achieved a 5x multiplier.
