Gladiator is the video slot that brings the movie back to your screen. Players will find massive rewards while taking advantage of the bonuses the game has to over. This version doesn’t have a progressive jackpot, but Playtech has developed an identical game to offer progressive rewards. Players can use various options to reach bet amounts that suit their needs, which include different coin values to be featured on each of the 25 pay-lines. The game allows more rewards with bonus feature including a pick me bonus game, a multi-level bonus that leads to free spins, and finally, wilds and scatters. Jackpot winnings range up to 5,000 coins when the emperor appears 5 times on a line.
Gladiator the video slot has impressed us with its real symbol from the film as we were expecting similar recreations as they did with their Marvel slot series. Among the actors, players can also complete combinations with golden high card values, which represent the lowest payouts as per usual.
The bonus features shape the brilliance of the game and is where most rewards are seen. Wild symbols show up as the gladiator helmet and assist in winnings with other non-bonus symbols. These appear on reels 2, 3 and 4 with the ability to replicate others. Only scatters are excluded from wild combinations. Should you obtain all three wilds in a spin, the first bonus game will be triggered. This is a mini-feature that presents nine helmets on the screen that will reward cash prizes.
Scatters present the Coliseum that needs to appear in 3 or more positions to activate its feature. These are displayed on all reels and don’t have to be seen on any line. Once three or more appear, the multi-level bonus is triggered. In this bonus four columns appear that can be selected. Players need to start at the bottom, which will provide free spins. The next column will reward a multiplier for combinations during free spins and finally, the third column grants additional scatters and the fourth will add another wild. After this bonus, free spins will begin. More winnings will appear as wilds are featured on all reels and additional free games can occur when 3 or more of the new scatters show themselves simultaneously.
Gladiator is an enjoyable game with great features and graphics. We found the multi-level bonus to be the start of the game and reward the most, but the rest of the features did not follow far behind. The game also seems more rewarding than the progressive, which is a plus to many, but others would appreciate the progressive opportunity more. Our rating: 85/100
