The visit to the Ancient Rome is likely to prove much more challenging than you could have expected, given that you will be forced to fight for your life in the most literal sense. You could be the one chosen to entertain the public in the famous Colosseum, taking on other gladiators in a ruthless fight for life and death. Prove that you have the courage, skill and strength to compete in the ultimate arena and defeat your opponents to feel the love of the crowd and receive expensive gifts from Roman emperors.
Rolled out in 2011, Gladiator 3D slot proved to be an instant success, and it is fair to say it is still going strong. Celebrating the world of Ancient Rome and the favourite pastime of Roman emperors, the slot game has done justice to the well known time interval in human history, while also impressing in the special features department. The 5 reel 30 payline 3D slot has no less than four bonus rounds, in addition to offering pretty impressive payouts during base play.
First thing that you will notice is that game options are styled as Roman columns, which adds an air of authenticity. Unsurprisingly, all game symbols correspond to the time interval and the prevailing theme, meaning the reels are populated by hero and villain gladiator, horses, gold coins, tiger, sword and shield, flail, golden cup and flag. The hero gladiator, princess and doors unlock game's special features, whereas the Colosseum awards scatter payouts.
How to play
Just like many other Betsoft 3D slots, Gladiator allows you to bet up to 5 coins per line and a maximum of 30 paylines, with coin denomination ranging from $0.05 to $1. Use bet per line and select lines buttons to determine your preferred stake before pressing spin or max bet.
Princess symbol in first position on reel 1 triggers the Wild x2 feature. All symbols touched by the rose petals thrown by the princess are turned into 2x Wild icons.
Colosseum acts as Scatter and while it does not unlock any bonus rounds, the symbol pays regardless of its position on the reels, up to a maximum of 15,000 coins.
Strategy & Tips
Hero gladiator symbol on any position in reel 3 activates Gladiator Smash Wild Reel feature. In this case the whole reel 3 turns Wild.
Three or more door icons on an active payline trigger the Click Me feature, where you are awarded instant payouts until the time collect is revealed.
Get hero, Colosseum and villain symbols in a row on paylines 1, 2 or 3 on reels 2, 3 and 4 to unlock the Gladiator Battle second screen bonus round. Choose your preferred gladiator and if he wins the fight you will be awarded extra bonus.
