Gladiator Slot Features
The Gladiator Slot game or Gladiator Jackpot has a few exciting features and apart from the usual slot symbols, wilds and scatters it also has a progressive jackpot and a gamble feature . Wild symbols can only be seen on reels 2, 3 and 4. Landing wild symbols simultaneously on the three reels triggers the Gladiator Jackpot Bonus round. Wilds can substitute any other symbol, except the scatter symbols, to create a winning combination.
Scatter symbols can appear on any payline. Landing two or more Scatter symbols in the main game mode earns the player additional wins which are then added to the payline winnings. Furthermore, landing three or more Scatter symbols on the reels triggers the Coliseum Bonus feature. The Scatter symbols payout is multiplied by the total wager.
The Gamble feature enables players to increase their earnings by wagering the winnings from their previous spins. Your current winnings will be show in the Bank field. Clicking the Red or Black button automatically submits your current earnings for a gamble. You will be required to predict the colour of the next card to be revealed- red or black. Predict correctly and you win, guess incorrectly and you lose your wager and the Gamble feature ends. The “Double To” section shows your possible wins.

Gladiator Slot Bonus Rounds
Gladiator slot has two different bonus rounds, the Colosseum bonus round which has great winning potential especially if you are playing on high stales and land a scatter as well as a wild (more info below) and the Gladiator Jackpot Bonus where players have also the chance to land the massive progressive jackpot!
Gladiator Jackpot Bonus
This feature is triggered when wild symbols appear on reels 2, 3 and 4 during the main game or Free Games. Here you will see 9 gold, silver or bronze helmets placed in a central window. All helmets have a price value that is a multiplier of the total bet. Needless to say, Gold helmets have the highest value while bronze have the lowest value. The values of the 9 helmets cumulatively make up the total Bonus prize. The Gladiator Jackpot is won by securing 9 golden helmets.
The Colosseum Bonus
Landing three or more Scatter symbols in any position on the reels triggers the Colosseum bonus round. You will see a grid of four rows and five columns. A player selects one stone at a time from the rows to win a prize. Each stone has its own functions:
- The number of free games is determined by stones from the 1st row
- The win multiplier in the free games is determined by stones from the 2nd row
- An Extra Scatter symbol in the free games is determined by stones from the 3rd row
- An Extra Wild symbol in the free games is determined by stones from the 4th row
One of the following occurs when a stone is picked:
- The next selection is made from the row above
- An additional selection is given on a currently active row- only works for the first and second row
- The whole column is revealed.
- The selected stone reveals a reward. Following this, the bonus feature terminates and the Free Games begin.
