The slot’s coin denomination range of $0.01 - $5.00 makes it the favorite of high rollers as well as low-stakes players. Based on the gladiator theme, the game is available in the fun as well as real money mode at most Playtech-powered casinos. However, the game is fun only when bets and placed on it and players can bet anywhere between 1 coin and 250 coins per spin. Since the prizes won depend on the coins wagered, players are advised to bet as high as possible. The games autoplay feature is an added delight for seasoned slots enthusiasts.
The slot features icons of General Maximum, Emperor Marcus Aurelius, Senator Gracchus, and Lucilla, along with high-value cards. The wild icon, which is the gladiator helmet, turns up only on the second, third, and fourth reels and can take on the value of all the other icons to create winning combinations. Lucky players who get gladiator helmets simultaneously on the second, third, and fourth reels will win the Gladiator Bonus Game, which challenges players to click on 9 masks to reveal multiplier values of 2x, 5x, and 10x. Players are then awarded a total of all the multipliers revealed.
The Coliseum is the scatter icon, which gives players the opportunity to win anywhere between 2x and 100x their original bets. Players can activate the Coliseum Bonus Game by creating a combination of 3 or more Coliseums. The Coliseum Bonus Game comprises 4 rows of 5 stones each, and players are prompted to choose a stone from each row. The first, second, third, and fourth rows offer free spins, multipliers, scatters, and wilds, respectively.
The gamble feature forms the icing of the cake, giving players the chance to either double or quadruple their winnings by simply choosing a card of correct color and suit.
