Spartacus has superb game play and sound effects, which give the game a terrific atmosphere. It combines a regular 5x3 screen with a second, colossal reels screen (12 rows on a single slot), giving you a massive 100 pay-lines in total.
Spartacus slots, like many other colossal reel games does generally play well on very little money and was designed to have a relatively low volatility rate, meaning you get lots of regular small wins, rather then infrequent larger wins. So, your money should go further with this game, compared to high volatility slots.
The first time I played Spartacus in a land-based casino, it was a real shock - I saw that it was a 25c game and didn't pick up on the fact it was a 25c per line game, meaning that each spin was costing $10.
I put my $20 bill into the machine, expecting to play for at least 5 or 10 minutes, clicked 'spin' button twice and it wouldn't spin again after that. I was confused at first, but then realised I had lost my entire $20 in just two spins!
Luckily, it was just $20, not $100, but I sure learned my lesson quickly - always take notice of the actual value of the spin, rather than looking at 'credits'
As well as Spartacus Slots, there are now quite a few additional games in the colossal reels games series of slots. Examples of the first batch of Colossal Reels games released include Van Helsing and Forbidden Dragons. These games have free spins bonuses with a 5x multiplier feature) as well as Red Riding Hood Slots which like Spartacus includes a nudging wild feature bonus.
Even though the game has now been around for a few years, Spartacus is still present in most Vegas casinos, as are many of the other games in this series by WMS.
Having talked to quite a few people about this game, I think that it could be improved relatively easily to make it more popular. If the reels came in a little quicker, it would be much easier to play.
As it stands the reels land a little slowly and it feels a bit sloppy. Also, the button you press is also not very responsive on some of the older machines, so these could be improved too.
