Based on the 2000 American epic from Dreamworks, Gladiator is the 5-reel, 3-row and 1 to 25 variable paylines slot from Playtech where prizes can reach a colossal 5,000 coins on an active payline!
Digital images from the movie
The slot uses digital images from the movie to help set the tone for the slot. The top paying base symbol includes Commodus, Lucilla, Proximo, Juba and Gracchus. The lower paying symbols include the A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 poker symbols at the lower end. Behind the slot to the left and right of the reels is the shadow of the coliseum where life and death is decided. Accompanying the theme and great graphics is an instrumental tune which plays softly. The sound effects from the spinning reels and payline formations are standard which is rather disappointing that some more thematic sounds didn't go into it.
Gladiator helmet wild, gladiator bonus, scatters, free games and card gamble
The gladiator helmet symbol can act as a wild replacing all other symbols except the scatter when appearing on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th reels. When the symbol appears on all 3 the Gladiator Bonus is unlocked where the game selects nine random helmets of different prize values that can be gold, silver or bronze. The coliseum bonus is a scatter where 2, 3, 4 or 5 symbols appearing anywhere on the reels reward you with 1, 4, 20 or 100 coins.
The symbols also unlock the Coliseum Bonus feature which invites you to select random stones to determine the number of free spins, multipliers, extra scatter symbols and extra wilds. The free spins feature cannot be re-triggered while it is running though a Commodus symbol on the 3rd reel will award you with an extra 3 free spins. Finally, the slot includes a red/black card gamble feature which is unlocked after a payline win. Here you are invited to guess the colour of the turned over card for a chance at double or nothing up to a maximum of €1,000.
Are you not entertained?
Gladiator slot has a theoretical return to player (RTP) of 94.09% with stakes that range from €0.25 to €1,250. While the slot lets you control the number of paylines up to 25, we suggest you play with all of them for the best chance of winning prizes. Payline wins are calculated by taking the number of coins as indicated in the paytable and multiplying them by the line bet. Gladiator is based on the Dreamworks' movie and is supported by digital images of the movie character as well as thematic music. The slot has many of the familiar features that you will find in other slots including a scatter, wild, free spins, gamble and bonus feature.
