NetEnt may not be as into the Ancient Greek and Ancient Roman styles as other developers, but no comprehensive mobile slots selection would be complete without at least one game that fits the themes. That is where Victorious comes in and while we have to say that it is one of the rare missteps from the developer in terms of graphics, we feel that the gameplay will be enough to see it through for the majority of players. Underpinning it all is 243 ways to win, and there are not many better ways of compensating for another department that is lacking than that, so all is definitely not lost yet.
What to Expect
The 243 ways to win layout is generally regarded as being the centrepiece of this game and unlike with Microgaming, which counts the pattern as being one of their core betting options, the same layout is a little trickier to find here in the NetEnt range. It is here, of course, and it works very well, with the symbols taking on their roles of leading to big wins for landing adjacently with gusto.
There are both wilds and scatters in play here although one of the more annoying things about the game is that the scatter symbol is not a scatter in the truest sense of the word. You will need three or more of them in order to trigger free spins, but they need to start from the first reel and land in order, just like any other win. Fortunately, the wild card comes in handy in a couple of different ways, as it can not only fill in for any of the standard symbols on the board but will also serve as a scatter too if it is relevant to do so.
There are plenty of spins up for grabs throughout too, with three, four or five symbols landing in the right pattern leading to the award of fifteen, twenty or 25 free games.
The MobileCasino.net Verdict
Disappointments are rare in the NetEnt mobile slots range and while Victorious is solid enough in most ways, the game just lacks some of the flair and creativity that we have come to expect from the game maker. While the game is still superior to many offerings from other developers, it does feel a bit out of place among such high-quality action elsewhere in the NetEnt selection. Nevertheless, if you enjoy 243 ways action, it still performs pretty well all-round and the relative rarity of such opportunities in the NetEnt range may mean that this game warrants further attention.
