BetSoft Gaming’s Gladiator slot isn’t based on the hit movie of the same name, unlike Playtech’s slot. Instead, this slot is a more generic Gladiatorial battle themed slot. It still hugely impressive, and features some cracking graphics upon its 5 reels and 30 paylines.
As with most BetSoft titles, this 3D video slot will see coin denominations of 2p up to £1 able to be wagered up to 5 times per line, which gives you minimum and maximum wagers of 2p per line, per spin, and £150 per spin. Players can win as much as a non-progressive 3,750 coin jackpot in this slot, by lining up 5 of the scattered Coliseum icons in any positions on the reels.
The princess (historically inaccurate, since Rome didn’t have princesses) symbol acts as the wild icon in this slot. All wild wins will be multiplied by 2x their normal rate of pay, and at any point in the game when a wild appears, the princess may scatters rose petals onto the reels, turning other symbols into wilds.
The hero symbol is a powerful gladiator icon, and when it appears in any position on the third reel, the player will get a Gladiator Smash Wild Reel bonus. A marble slab will then cover the third reel. The gladiator will then smash it to turn the entire reel wild.
If the player lands the hero, Coliseum and villain icons on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd reels, or the 2nd, 3rd and 4th reels, the player will trigger a Prepare for Battle bonus. In this battle bonus, every attack you black or make will earn you winnings.
Click Me bonus
If players bag 3 or more door symbols on any active payline, they will trigger the customary Click Me bonus feature. In this bonus, players can choose one of several symbols to pocket a cash prize. They can keep bagging wins until the “collect” sign is located.
Gladiator has some really nifty special features, top quality graphics and moderately cheap bets. All in all, what’s not to like?
