The latest game to come from Slotland is Gladiator Games, and this slot machine chooses to take the player to Ancient Rome, to a time where people would fight to the death in arenas, for the pleasure of spectators sitting in the stands.
In the case of Gladiator Games, the action will take place on its 5 reels, which get 30 active lines at most. Each of the wins you get inside could go as high as $2,000. There are a couple of good features as well, such as the Trophy Chest whose prize you can win through a Gladiator Duel, the wild symbol or the scatters which get you to the feature.
Betting and Prizes
Thanks to the ability it gives you, to select both the number of active lines and the line bet itself, the wager you use in Gladiator Games could be quite low, even at $0.05, but it could also go as high as $60. The line bet that you’re using along the way varies between $0.05 and $2.
Moving on to prizes, it’s not going to be the sort of slot that will deliver a huge win, since the best combo pays only 1,000 coins. That’s $2,000 cash for a single line, hardly an inspiring amount. However, the game has a Treasure Chest that could collect more money in it, plus you can trigger a progressive jackpot as well, since it’s a Slotland title.
Gladiator Games Slot Features
The Cage is one of the important symbols of Gladiator Games. It’s the one that keeps the lion back, and by appearing on the reels it will set him free. Besides the Wild Cage, the Lion symbols will also be turned into wilds for that round. Wild symbols may act as replacements for other types of icons that you get to form combinations.
Something you don’t see too often, is the ability to collect Scatter Coins as they appear. These coins go into a Trophy Chest, which keeps going up in value. Eventually, you get a shot at winning that amount in the Gladiator Duel.
As for the way to reach the Gladiator Games, you do that by collecting the four pieces of armor when they appear. You have the helmet of the gladiator, his armor, sword and shield. Once you have all four, the gladiator enters on your behalf in the arena and fights another one. You pick whether the gladiator defends, attacks or relies on his charisma. Win the fight, and you get the prize from the Trophy Chest.
Theme & Design
The inspiration comes for the game from Ancient Rome, so obviously you have the relevant decorations around the reels as well. There are large marble columns sitting at the sides, there are large eagle flags, gladiators guarding the Trophy Chest, with the reels hosting images that are 100% relevant. Those symbols give you the Gladiators, Lions, Money Purses, feasts, weapons, armor and the Roman Eagle, among others. Look out for the scattered Coins which are collected, or the Cage Wilds.
Gladiator Games will offer superior graphics and a set of features that I found very enjoyable, particularly since they made some changes to the usual scatters or wilds from the other games. It’s a good release from Slotland, one that I will recommend you play.
