How to Play
The game hasn’t changed the number of reels or paylines, staying with 5 reels and 25 fixed paylines. The Wild symbol, a gladiator helmet, will appear only on reels 2, 3, and 4. It substitutes for all symbols except the Scatter symbol, which is the Coliseum.
While the Wild symbol on itself can’t award you any wins, in combination with other symbols it will make for amazing winning combinations. If you manage to land 3 of the gladiator helmets anywhere on reels 2, 3 and 4, you will trigger the Gladiator Jackpot bonus round. During this bonus round, the game will randomly pick 9 helmets that are either gold, silver or bronze, with each helmet awarding you a prize that will multiply your total line bet. As you can imagine, the gold helmets award the most, with the silver helmets bringing less coins, and the bronze helmet coming in at last place when it comes to rewards.
Gameplay Experience: Graphic and Sound
As you can imagine, the new and improved Gladiator online slot has slightly better visuals that are sharper and more advanced than the original’s. The new version is equipped with a feature that will activate a battle scene from the movie if you manage to land three gladiator helmets. The audio has been improved in the same vein as the visuals, so you can expect slightly better sound effects this time. Luckily, players can enjoy the game on their mobile devices as well.
The Gladiator Jackpot slot will surely have players trying to crack the jackpot, since it is often over $1 million and steadily rising, with the biggest jackpot win being over $3 million. Lucky players who manage to collect 9 golden helmets during the base game will crack the Gladiator Jackpot, which starts at over $50,000 and rises until it is won.
Landing 2 or more Scatter symbols will reward players with a payout that is multiplied by the total line bet. Landing 3 or more Scatter symbols will activate the Coliseum Bonus feature. This will take you to a separate screen with 5 reels and 4 rows, where you need to choose one stone. The first row will award you a certain number of Free spins; the second row will determine the multiplier value; the third row reveals which extra Scatter symbol will be used during Free spins; and the 4th row which extra Wild symbol will be used during the free spins.
