Movie-themed slots are easy to find these days, but few are quite as epic looking as Gladiator. Based on the 2000 film of the same name directed by Ridley Scott and starring Russell Crowe, Gladiator takes you into the colosseum to test your luck on the slots.
Like the main character in the film, the Gladiator slot game is something of a crowd-pleaser. The game was developed by the team at Playtech and has a range of excellent special features. It also boasts some beautiful graphics that help recreate the atmosphere and the magic of the original movie. It is a fun and immersive gaming experience that also offers you the chance to win some good cash prizes.
Gladiator has many bonuses to offer players, but the best one is easily the Colosseum bonus. This is triggered when you get between three and five Colosseum symbols scattered across your reels. In this game, you have to pick stones out of the Colosseum walls to unlock various prizes; these include multipliers and free spins.
There are also free games which can be unlocked in this feature which will provide you with coins. The amount will depend on the character you takedown, with Joaquin Phoenix’s Commodus providing you with the most at 5,000 coins.
The game’s wild symbol is the Gladiator mask. This will substitute for any symbol on your reels, but it will also unlock another free game if you land three of them on reels two, three and four. The Gladiator bonus game is where you get to pick nine random Gladiator helmets from a selection. Each of these helmets will have a certain amount of coins, and your prize will be the total of all nine.
Double your money
If all of that isn’t enough, the game does also offer a double your money feature for bets under $1,000. All you have to do is choose whether a card is red or black to win the prize.
