NetEnt has been behind numerous great slots over the years and one that many players have a close relationship with, is Victorious which NetEnt launched back in 2011. Almost 10 years on and the slot is still going strong.
So strong in fact, that NetEnt now has made it part of their MAX series. The MAX series is a series of slots where you as the player get to choose what volatility to play with. Want lots of smaller wins all the time or are you more into bigger wins up to 7,000 x bet?
With Victorious MAX you decide. The slot is the same as the classic slot from 2011, with five reels, 243 paylines and an impressive RTP of 96,95%. As far as volatility goes, well you decide. Go for classic mode and it’s medium with a max win of 1,500 x your stake, but if you play the MAX version, it goes to high volatility and the max win increases to 7,000 x your wager.
When Victorious was released in 2011 it was one of the very first slots to offer 243 paylines. Micogamig was first offering this many lines with their slot Burning Desire, but NetEnt was quick to follow suit, and 10 years on not many players remember Burning Desire.
Victorious on the other hand, is still going strong even though it doesn’t offer up much in terms of cool features or lively animations. On top of a traditional wild symbol that can replace all other symbols except the scatter, the only special features are free spins and a multiplier.
Land three scatters and you win 5 free spins, four scatters gets you 15 free spins, and one scatter on all five reels will see you start the bonus round with 20 free spins. A great start that only gets better by the fact that just two scatters during free spins will give you an additional 15 free spins.
The multiplier is active on every single free spin and depending on if you play the Classic or MAX version, it will be x 3 or x 6 respectively.
For a slot developer to re-launch a slot, clone or just a reskin, is nothing new. It happens all the time and sometimes it works really well. In the case of Victorious MAX, NetEnt has done it rather well. The theme is exactly as it was in 2011 and the same goes for symbols and features.
The roman theme is popular enough, but we would have liked to see NetEnt upgrade Victorious MAX a little bit more. Not because the graphics are poor, because it’s not, but more because the slot deserves it after many years of trusted service. Making it a MAX slot and increasing the win to x 7,000 surely helps, but it doesn’t carry Victorious MAX into a new decade.
We were a big fan of Victorious when it launched in 2011 and it’s nice to see it still kicking about. The slot makes a great addition to NetEnts MAX Series and we are sure it will go on for years to come.
