Before she lost her glory, Rome was known across the world for many things, one of them being epic warriors called gladiators. These warriors battled with strength, wit, skill, and agility inside coliseums, battling either for death or the roar of the crowds.
The winners were always the bravest and strongest, and they earned an entire nation’s adoration and unimaginable wealth.
You’ll get a few treats from the Gladiator movie scenes and the symbols may jog you down memory lane, but Betsoft Gaming’s Gladiator is still a slot machine that is much more unique and different from anything you’ve seen in the movies.

There is also a decent assortment of bonus features including a wild, bonus rounds, and scatters. If you love battling, you can always gamble your winnings so that they get doubled, and you can earn a whopping $50,000.

Bonus Rounds on Gladiator Slot
Gladiator has nine basic symbols that pay out when they appear adjacent to each other in twos or threes, and in a left-right direction. The special symbols are four. There is also the enticing Gladiator Bonus Game.
The princess is the wild symbol and when she shows up on any reel’s first line, she turns the rest of the symbols on the reels wild by scattering rose petals over them. Any winning combination you get is then paid out with a 2X multiplier.
The glorious hero of the story is the key to the Smashing Wild Reel. When he lands on the third reel, he makes the entire reel go wild. It becomes a slab of marble that he then smashes into pieces and an expanding wild reel is revealed. It helps bring you a large payout.
The coliseum is the symbol for the scatters. When you hit three or more coliseums in a winning combination, you trigger a bonus game. A row of stones appears and you must select a stone, a row at a time starting from the bottom, to reveal the hidden prize. You could get free spins, a multiplier, scatters, or extra wilds. However, this bonus game won’t be retriggered during free spins. The door symbol is the trigger for a “Click Me” bonus. With three or more doors, you win multiple instant prizes. The bonus round ends when you hit the collect symbol.
