The Gladiator Jackpot slot is Playtech's most famous and popular slot machine with a progressive jackpot. This game features two exciting bonus games and guarantees for exciting game play with great winning opportunities. The game features images and sequences of the famous movie that was directed by Ridley Scott. Since the game is a progressive slot, the game has a medium to high variance, which means that you won't win frequently. If you do win, the amount can be a larger one, but because of this the slot is not suitable for players with a smaller budget. You can also play Gladiator mobile on the go, the game is available in the Playtech mobile range of games.
Two Gladiator bonus games
The game features a wild symbol (the gladiator helmet) that also triggers the bonus game. The symbol can appear on reels 2, 3 and 4 and substitutes for all other symbols to form winning combinations, but it doesn't replace the scatter.
The Gladiator Jackpot bonus game is triggered when you get 3 gladiator helmet symbols on the three reels. In the game are 9 helmets in either gold, silver or bronze. The helmet and coin values are picked randomly, but a higher wager increases the chances of winning the big jackpot. You win the jackpot when you get 9 golden helmets. As it is a progressive jackpot it grows with each round of every player that wagers real money in the game. However, when the bonus game is triggered during free spins it is not possible to win the jackpot.
The scatter symbol is that of the Coliseum. Three or more scatters anywhere on the screen trigger the Coliseum bonus game. In this game you have to pick stones to reveal your prizes. Each row contains different prizes.
Row 1 has free spins
Row 2 has multipliers
Row 3 has additional scatter symbols
Row 4 has additional wild symbols
Each time you pick a stone you get a prize and one of four options where you can either collect all prizes from one column, pick another stone from the row above, pick another stone in the same row, or collect the prize and start the free spins. You can also win extra free spins during the free rounds.
The game also features a gamble option where you have the chance to double your winnings, or lose them all. In this game you have to predict which colour the next card will have. The limit for the double up is 2.500 €/£/$. The symbol with Commodus is the highest paying symbol and when you get 5 of him on a payline, you win 5.000 coins that are multiplied by the line bet.
