All hail the emperor of Rome, these chants were heard before every gladiator fight, but not this one! There will be no blood and glory here, but hopefully fortune will follow the Gladiator of Rome instead. Created by 1×2 gaming you will find lots of similarities to other games from their library, but will it stand out or fall behind other roman themed games?
Gladiator of Rome is a 5-reel, 20 fixed pay line slot that offers a healthy RTP of 97.32%, which seems to be the norm for 1X2 Gaming slots. There’s not much going on in the background design really, just sand and sky as far as the eye can see and the reels spin transparently above.
Bet Amounts – Betting begins at 20p per spin and can be increased to the maximum of £25 per spin. To amend your bet amount, you can change the coin value or the coin level which are found to the left and right of the screen.
Wild Symbol – A single gladiator is your wild symbol in Gladiator of Rome and he will substitute for all other symbols except the bonus.
Bonus Symbol – Two gladiators fighting each other is your bonus symbol. Landing 3 of these anywhere in view will trigger the bonus spins. Your bonus symbol will only appear on reels 2, 3 and 4.
Other Symbols – Gladiator of Rome has lots of symbols relating to the theme, the higher paying ones are represented by various gladiators, a shield, Caesar and an eagle. Your lower paying symbols are depicted by the card values A, K, Q, J and 10 which are all encompassed in golden wreaths.
Bonus Spin Feature – Having landed 3 or more of the bonus symbol, you will be allocated 30 spins to play through. During the bonus round the bonus symbol and the J are removed from the reels. This means that despite not being able to retrigger the bonus spins, you are in with higher chances of creating winning combinations.
But that’s not all that Gladiator of Rome has to offer in this round. The win multiplier will increase every so often and you can see the progress at the top of the screen.
- X1 multiplier on first 10 spins,
- X2 multiplier on next 10 spins,
- X3 multiplier on final 10 spins.
Gladiator of Rome is an easy to play slot, not much by way of extras and features but wins come along easy enough despite this. Triggering the bonus spins is where the big money is at for players and luckily that isn’t too hard. Also, let’s not forget that increasing multiplier too. On the whole the game itself can get a bit samey and therefore players will tend to switch off. But, if you are looking for a game that doesn’t take too much concentration, then this will be right up your street.
