Maximus Payus

Just as with Biggus Dickus in Monty Python’s Life of Brian, Comedy Roman names are always good value and here we have the pleasure of Maximus Payus in an online slot from Inspired Gaming; it comes with free spins and the option to spend a bit more on the Fortune Bet so keep reading to find out more.

Maximus Payus is a five reel slot with four rows and 1024 ways to win; dramatic music accompanies your gameplay which takes place on a set of reels through which we can just about make out some sort of amphitheatre.

High-value symbols here include Maximus, a charioteer, a helmet, a shield and an exterior view of the amphitheatre; 9, 10, J, Q, K and A make up the lower values.

The golden laurel is wild and it will replace all other symbols to help form winning combinations except for the SPQR bonus icon.

Bonus Features

Free Spins

This is triggered by landing three, four or five of the SPQR bonus symbols anywhere in view for which the award is 8, 15 or 20 free spins respectively; the wild symbols become 2x multipliers during this round and landing two, three, four or five SPQRs will award an extra 5, 8, 15 or 20 spins to your total.

Reel Bonuses

The following mini-features can be triggered at random on any base game spin:

  • Big Win – awards an instant win worth at least 20x the total stake.
  • Five Of A Kind – awards a five of a kind win.

Fortune Bet

If you fancy increasing your stake by 50% then click the Fortune Bet button and watch as the bonus symbols double in height to give a better chance of triggering the free spins.

Verdict

Maximus Payus doesn’t offer anything particularly groundbreaking but it’s big, bold and moves along at a swift pace while the promise of free spins is heightened by the Fortune Bet option.
