The first title from the partnership of Yggdrasil and ReelPlay
with up-and-coming studio Hot Rise Games, Legion Hot 1 transports you to the battlefields of Ancient Rome. A familiar theme for a slot game, but the features and gameplay help this epic-looking slot stand out.
The unique ReelPlay game mechanic makes this slot a bonus game in and of itself. As shields land on the reels, they are collected to unlock new positions on the reels, with a maximum of 3,5,5,5,3 reel set to unlock with 2x multipliers on the top and bottom reel positions.
Four shields collected on any of the reels triggers free spins, with shield symbols now acting as a 2x wild multiplier, which becomes a 4x wild if it lands on one of the 2x reel positions. The Hot 1 in the title refers to the final spin of the bonus round, where extra multipliers are added.
Legion Hot 1 is an interesting slot. Visually it’s nothing new - the graphics are impressive, but they are also simple and incorporate many of the same symbols and images as similarly themed slots. But it’s the gameplay that really
sets this slot apart from the other Roman-themed slots from other developers.
The addition of the shield collection mechanic, as well as the Free Spins and the Hot 1 feature, means that despite its low variance, this slot has the potential to trigger big payouts if the reels land in your favor. All in all, this is an entertaining slot with a lot to keep players interested. Playable from $0.30 to $90 per spin on compatible desktop, smartphone, and tablet devices, Legion Hot 1 should appeal to most players.
