Before the battle Scipio bribed the leader of Hannibal's Numidian cavalry, Masinissa, that fought with him against the Romans for many years in Italy. They switched sides and joined the Romans, the result was that Scipio defeated Hannibal, it was the first time in over 15 years the Romans defeated Hannibal in battle. The treaty following the battle bankrupted Carthage and severely limited their military power and they weren't a serious threat to Rome again.
