    Game Description

    The term ‘Gladiator’ reminds us of 2 things; Olivia Pope and her team of Gladiators in the popular 2014 TV series Scandal and of course Russell Crowe and his six pack in the major Hollywood blockbuster. Olivia Pope and her team have not yet made it to a slot machine, but Russell Crowe and his movie did!

    Welcome to the latest Playtech video slot that pays a major tribute to the 2000 movie Gladiator, starring Russell Crowe, Joaquin Phoenix and Connie Nielsen. The premise is that of the movie, where our hero and saviour Maiximus Decimus Meridius is a slave that seeks revenge against Commodus who has murdered all his family in Spain. A maximum avenges everyone, finds love and eventually succumbs to stab wounds, and dies a hero as a ‘soldier of Rome’.

    Do you have what it takes to join the Commander of the North on the reels of the Gladiator slot machine? Are you a loyal servant to the Emperor Marcus Aurelius? Will you have your vengeance this life or the next? Take a spin on the reels of Playtech’s Gladiator, and let your inner Gladiator shine with free spins, insane multipliers and a great jackpot!

    Technical Characteristics

    We still feel the chills as we remember the scene when Maximus entered the Coliseum to fight major warriors in front of the Emperor. This is the adrenalin rush that you will feel playing Playtech’s online slot Gladiator. Based on the major motion picture with impeccable design, graphics and characters, this slot machine is a major throwback to the Hollywood sensation!

    Gladiator is a Playtech powered slot machine and enjoys a set up with 5 reels and 25 pay lines. Start fighting your enemies with a little as 0.25 per spin, or else go all in like Maximus with a maximum wager of 250.00 per spin. Just kind in mind that the bigger your wager is, the better chance you have landing the jackpot that the slot machine enjoys!

    Whilst playing the slot machine, you will recognise some friendly or not so friendly faces from the movie. Maximus is all dressed up as a Gladiator and acts as a wild, Commodus promises some good payouts, whilst smiley Lucilla is also regarded as a high paying symbol, whilst the lovely Coliseum acts as a scatter symbol. Other lower paying symbols include; 9, 10, J, Q, K and A.

    Join the reels of the Gladiator video slot, and enjoy the fun both on desktop and via mobile devices including tablet or mobile phone. Your Roman adventure starts today!

    Bonuses and Rewards

    Heavy when it comes to bonuses and rewards, safe to say that Gladiator and it’s jackpot pays you well!

    Let us start by telling you how the Coliseum will make you a little bit richer. So the symbol is the scatter all throughout your game-play and landing 3 or more on an active pay-line will trigger the Coliseum Bonus feature. Pressing start will start off your bonus round where you are presented with a grid containing 4 rows and 5 columns, from which you would need to pick 1 stone from the bottom row making your way up to reveal your awards and prizes. You will win a prize from each row and your prizes will be determined as follows:

    The first row will determine how many free spins you win.

    The second row will award you a multiplier.

    The third row will give you an extra scatter symbol to use in the free spins round.

    The forth row will award you an extra wild symbol to use during the free spins round.

    When the free spins start, the symbols will be converted to all the higher paying characters of your game, thus awarding you bigger payouts! Look out for the Emperor symbol that will award you 3 additional free spins during the bonus round. From experience we can tell you that we have landed this bonus round multiple times and managed to walk away with 24 free spins with all the winnings being multiplied by a 3x. Playtech have a way in making bonus rounds colourful, and we would not have it any other way!

    The other bonus round is that of the Gladiator Jackpot Bonus. Your job is to try and land 3 Gladiator Helmet symbols on your reels 2, 3 and 4, and the bonus round is indeed triggered. You will be transported to an arena where you will be presented with 9 helmets in gold, silver or bronze. If you manage to pick the correct helmet (all gold ones) at the right time you could walk away with one of the biggest jackpots in history. The last massive jackpot that Gladiator awarded was in October 2013, when one lucky player walked away with a 2 million jackpot. Play this great slot machine, and the next winner would be you!
