Gladiator is a 25-payline video slot operating on the Playtech software platform. The slot’s design and symbols were created to reflect the eponymous movie perfectly, with the Coliseum symbol being the game’s scatter and the Gladiator Helmet being the wild card. Players are invited to try the slot on this page free of charge or visit any of the listed Playtech casinos to play the game for real money.
Prior to entering the arena alongside legendary Maximus Decimus, one should fix their wager. “Lines” adjusts the number of paylines used, “Bet Per Line” chooses the number of coins wagered and “Click To Change” modifies the coin value ranging from 0.01 to 5. In order to start the game, one should press “Spin” and to spin the reels at the highest bet, “Bet Max” should be pushed. “Auto Start” turns the reels for a preset number of times without any interruption.
After any win, players can click “Gamble” to increase their winnings. If they guess whether the face-down card is “Red” or “Black”, their sum is doubled. Guessing wrong, however, leads to the loss of the amount and the termination of the gamble feature. Players can also press “Collect” at any time in order to save their winnings and leave the round.
3 or more scattered Coliseums trigger the Coliseum Bonus in which players pick stones to reveal their prizes. Different prizes are located in different rows. Row 1 contains Free Games, row 2 hides Free Game multipliers, row 3 will reveal extra scatters and row 4 holds extra wilds.
For each pick players win a prize and 1 of 4 options. They can collect all prizes in the picked column, pick another prize in the row above, pick another prize in the same row or collect the prize and continue to their Free Games. The Coliseum Bonus cannot be re-activated during the Free Game round.
The Gladiator Bonus is initiated when 3 Gladiator Helmets emerge on reels 2, 3 and 4. There are 9 random Helmets of different prize values and they can be gold, silver or bronze. All Helmet wins are added up.
A 5,000-coin jackpot will be won when 5 Emperor Commodus symbols occur on an enabled payline.
