Slots players who enjoyed watching a blockbuster movie called Gladiator, made by Ridley Scott, will be delighted with Playtech’s movie-themed slot Gladiator. In fact, Playtech has done everything in its power to reproduce the authentic movie-watching experience as the slot features video clippings of the movie, audio effects, and animations that have the power to keep players glued to their seats for hours. The reels feature almost all the chief characters from the movie, and as players spin the reels, they will come across the familiar faces of Gracchus, Commodus, Proximo, Lucilla, Juba, and others. Gladiator is indeed a great slot for fans of the movie because each character icon has the power to trigger a video clipping from the movie.
Playtech’s Gladiator is a non-progressive slot with 5 reels, 25 lines, lucrative icons such as scatters and wilds, and a top fixed jackpot of $1,250,000 or 50,000 coins. On the downside, the slot lacks a progressive jackpot.
The betting range is quite affordable as players can bet a minimum of $0.02 to a maximum of $6250 per game. In other words, players can bet a maximum of 250 coins per spin or 10 coins per line, choosing from a coin value range of $0.02 to $25. Slots experts say that this is one of the largest betting ranges available in the slot gaming industry, which makes the slot ideal for all types of budgets imaginable.
Wilds and Scatters
The Gladiator icon is the wild, which can substitute for all other icons across the reels except the scatter to help players create winning combinations. But the wild appears only on the second, third, and fourth reels. The Gladiator is an important icon because it is not only the wild, but can also trigger the Gladiator Bonus Game.
The simultaneously appearance of the Gladiator wild icons on the second, third, and fourth reels triggers the Gladiator Bonus Game, in which players have to choose from nine Gladiator masks to get attractive prizes in the form of multipliers.
The Coliseum Bonus Game is activated by the simultaneous appearance of at least three scatter Coliseum symbols across the reels. Once this happens, players are taken to the coliseum’s dungeon, where a tablet with four rows of icons is displayed. Players are then prompted to select an icon on each row to win a wide range of prizes. The icons on the first and second rows reveal free games and multipliers, respectively. The icons on the third and fourth rows reveal extra scatter and extra wild symbols, which appear during the free games round.
If the Emperor icon appears on the third reel while playing a free spin, players will get three more free games. Besides, the Coliseum Bonus Game can be activated over and over again when the free games are being played.
Gladiator slot comes with an optional gamble feature, giving players the opportunity to either double their winnings or lose them all by playing a simple guessing game.
