About Gladiator

Slots based on the Roman Empire are easy to come by with most major software developers having at least one to show for their efforts, but Playtech’s Gladiator beats the lot hands down. For starters it uses clips, pictures and characters from the matchless Year 2000 film starring Russell Crowe and Joaquin Phoenix – combine that with some epic feature play and you’ve got a guaranteed winner.

Game features

First of is the Coliseum Bonus, which takes you to a separate set of reels, with each of 4 rows determining your free spins, multiplier values and symbols for extra scatters and extra wilds that will get used during your free spins. There's a chance here to win up to 24 free spins, with a triple multiplier so you can expect a decent return once you triggered this feature.

Next up is the Gladiator Jackpot Bonus feature: This is a tombola-style 3x3 grid of squares, awarding various prizes, and finally there's the Gamble feature - which will appeal to the pub fruit slot player in you, with a straight red or black-style double or quits idea that - although not particularly original - is far too much fun ever to leave out of a truly compelling slot game

Who’s on the reels?

The standard higher value symbols are the General Maximus, Senator Gracchus, Emperor Marcus Aurelius, Lucilla; the lower value symbols are the stock poker symbols we all know and love. 

The wild symbol is the Gladiator Helmet which can only appear on Reels 2, 3 and 4; this symbol can substitute for all other symbols to complete a winning combination. The scatter symbol is the Coliseum symbol which can appear scattered anywhere on the reels.

One thing you might pick up on is that Russell Crowe doesn’t appear anywhere! Sadly he had to be missed off due to legal complications, but don’t worry – his absence won’t affect your enjoyment of this classic game one bit.

Play live casino games and Gladiator together!

If your casino has a Playtech live gaming area then you’ll be able to open up a custom-built window that lets you play side games. Only the very best Playtech slots get picked for this purpose and we’re pleased to be able to say that for most casinos Gladiator is one of them. You can therefore enjoy some fabulous entertainment between each round of your table game and perhaps win a progressive jackpot prize that’s far in excess of anything you’d get at roulette or Blackjack!

Fancy winning even more? Then play the sequel!

The original Gladiator game proved to be so popular that Playtech made a progressive jackpot version of the same game. All the other features remain in place but you can now win a life-changing sum of cash – and you still won’t have to wrestle a lion to get it. Landing the jackpot is achieved simply by getting 9 gold helmets to appear on the screen at once from the base game. 

At the time of writing the total progressive prize was in excess of £1.5 million, so playing Gladiator really could leave with an emperor-sized lump sum that will let you live like Caesar for as long as you like.
