How many slots exist on the topic of ancient civilizations? Probably an unlimited number. Nevertheless, no one said that players could not play them all. Can the Game of Gladiators casino slot surprise players?
Game of Gladiators has five reels and three rows with twenty pay lines. The design is made in the style of ancient Rome, all set in the gladiator arena.
How to play Game of Gladiators
The visuals in Game of Gladiators are indeed less intense than what players would usually expect from this theme; some burning flames, some blood and a few animations, it all appears as standard, with no discernible ground-breaking artwork, however, the visual graphics are robust and suitably impress players.
Located in a dark stone tunnel of a gladiatorial amphitheatre, the icons on the reels include Ace to Jack royal values. Higher rewarding symbols are the four gladiator characters, namely Provocator, Scissor, Murmillio and Rectiarus, the latter being the top-prize fighter bestowing players twenty times their bet stake should they land five of a kind. Even more rewarding is the tiger wild symbol that not only replaces all regular icons but will grant players twenty-five times their bet stake if five lands.
Bonuses and free spins
In Game of Gladiators, five randomly activated features can be used. For example, the Primus Mystery round. Here are the game functions:
Fame. One of the icons of the gladiator is chosen randomly, and the payments are calculated based on the prize table for the battle.
Sword Attack. The first drum is repeated two, three or four times, displaying identical personas. At best, this can lead to five reels with the same icons.
Spear Attack. Players will see that from three to six wild tigers are randomly added to the reels.
Enraged. If this round is initiated, two fully folded Wild Tigers are randomly added.
Net Attack. All the essential icons of the gladiator are held on the reels during the game on respin.
An option to enter the battle in the arena is especially noteworthy. An alternative is available when three Portcullis scatter icons land on the first, third and fifth reels. Before the arena, players need to decide a champion: Spartak or Amazonia. The chosen fighter will replace the scatter for the duration of the free spins round.
Game of Gladiators is a well-executed game - there are unique options, supplementary game rounds, stylistic images of the game characters and even some central characters. The player can pick a role for whom they will play to compete for a huge reward.
Whilst the base game has some exciting features on offer, the payouts are generally not high, considering the high volatility. Playing the game, however, it is hard to imagine how huge wins would ever happen.
Whilst the free spin feature seems to trigger frequently, the rewards are sadly too small here as well. Players would need to gather a ridiculous amount of small to medium sized wins to even get anywhere near the max win available. For a gladiator-themed slot, it’s rather tame.
