This is Spartania Theme
Spartania is set in the Ancient times of Greeks and Romans and their epic battles. The graphics in the game are worthy of an animated movie, and of course all symbols do animate. The smart phone version has slightly less animation due to screen size and resolution. The game includes many sound effects from the theme, such as cracking whips, lions and tigers roaring, clashing swords and beating drums.
The game is set in a Roman arena, where gladiators would battle it out with each other and with various wild animals. The gladiators were often Greek, which is where the tying in of the Spartan theme comes in. All graphics are in cartoon style, and some symbols do look highly amusing such as the poor armoured elephant who looks very perturbed about his questionable get up. The reels are surrounded by Greek pillars, and not one inch of your screen is unadorned by detailed graphics.
