About Gladiator Slots
Playtech’s Gladiator is starting to look a little dated now (it’s seven years old – gulp!) but for fans of the blockbuster 2000 movie, there’s still lots to enjoy.
Based on the classic swords ‘n’ slasher epic that took down a whole host of Oscars, Gladiator tells the tale of a Roman General, Maximus, who’s betrayed and ends up as a gladiator, fighting his way all the way to the Coliseum.
Gladiator Jackpot was released more recently, and that contains a potential big-money progressive jackpot, but in terms of gameplay this original is pretty much the same.
The game is played on five reels and has 25 paylines. Major characters are present on the reels, like Maximus himself, Proximo his trainer, the evil Commodus, his sister Lucilla, and the politician Gracchus.
Three Gladiator helmets on the centre three reels triggers the Gladiator Bonus. Essentially it’s an instant win bonus where various helmets are picked at random to reveal cash prizes.
Three or more Coliseum Scatters, however, triggers the – wait for it – Coliseum bonus, where you progress along a grid of stones to reveal prizes. The first row contains free spins amounts, the second row multipliers, the third bonus Scatters and the fourth extra Wilds. You can bag up to 24 free spins with a 3x multiplier attached.
Your free spins will start, and you can even earn extra prizes before the spins start. Plus, if Commodus appears on Reel 3 during the feature you’ll bag an extra three free games.
For fans of Hollywood action and good Playtech slots alike, Gladiator still offers plenty of thrills. Big-money hunters may want to seek out the progressive jackpot version of the game, however, to bag some bigger wins.
