This game really needs no introduction because it’s modelled after the mega movie Gladiator. But what Boku Slots are eager to see is whether the thrills and drama of the big screen, can be transferred to the small screen. Playtech are the designers behind Gladiator Jackpot and if its anything like their top game series Age of Gods, then we’re sure there will be some interesting features.
Gladiator Jackpot is a 5-reel, 25 pay line slot that offers an incredible 91.5% RTP to its players. The game is set to the theme of the movie Gladiator, which of course was based in Roman times. The higher value symbols tend to be characters from the movie such as Commodus and Proximo. Then the lower values are the usual card suits, running from the A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9.
Bet Amounts – Betting on Gladiator Jackpot begins at 1p per line, making it as low as 1p per spin if only one line is in play and 25p if all 25 lines are in play. You can adjust your bet amount up to a maximum of £25 if all 25 lines are in play, which is still affordable for most players.
Wild Symbol – A silver gladiator helmet is your wild symbol on Gladiator Jackpot and it substitutes for all other symbols except the scatter. Landing three of these symbols will trigger the gladiator bonus feature, but they will only appear on reels 2, 3 and 4.
Scatter Symbol – The coliseum is the scatter symbol and 3 or more of these anywhere on the reels will trigger the bonus spins feature.
Gladiator Bonus Feature – Once you have collected three gladiator helmets on the reels, the bonus will begin by taking you to a new screen filled with helmets. You can then choose 9 of these helmets to accumulate your prize. Each helmet will offer a prize of bronze, silver or gold and once all nine have been chosen, the round ends and your win is added to your balance. However, if you manage to reveal nine golden helmets then you will win the progressive jackpot, so pick wisely.
- Row one holds bonus spins,
- Row two holds bonus spins with multipliers,
- Row three holds extra scatter symbols,
- Row four holds extra wild symbols,
After each pick you are given one of four options:
- Collect all prizes in the picked column,
- Pick another prize in the row above,
- Pick another prize in the row below,
- Collect the prize chosen and move to bonus spins.
The knack is to decide whether the prize you have just picked, will garner you the best results in the bonus spins. If not, then pick again and accumulate your prizes, to get better results in the next stage.
Commodus Feature – Land Commodus on reel 3 during the bonus spins and you will be awarded with 3 extra spins.
Gladiator Jackpot has all the makings of a movie masterpiece, it has suspense, excitement and of course let’s not forget that fantastic 91.5% RTP. The wins land frequently though the bonus features are a little harder to pin down, but when the do it is worth the wait. The soundtrack is taken straight from the movie and lends an authentic feel to the game. If you are a fan of the film, you will fall in love with it all over again after you have played the slot.
