Spartacus Slot Machine
This slot by WMS is a particularly striking one. Upon entering you’re met by both a somewhat standard main reel set with a much larger one to the right hand side of the screen, this one containing 12 symbols on each of the five reels. This different look is part of the ‘Colossal Reels’ theme you’ll find at a number of Williams Interactive slots.
The reels feature a host of relevant symbols including a lion, armor, weapons and a gladiator in action. However the two main symbols at this slot are both larger in size, taking up a number of symbols – these being the male and female gladiators. These are the highest paying in the game, and being stacked, the most striking visually. The entire slot machine game has a nice feel to it. All of the symbols appear on the reels as if on columns found at a coliseum and are drawn in rich colors, giving the slot an eye catching look. All the time while you are playing the game is accompanied by the sounds of a battle in the arena, with roars and shouts from the combatants, mixed in with the clatter of sword hitting sword and the whinnying of horses
Spartacus Slot Machine Symbols / Features
Across the two sets of reels there are 100 win lines. Your coin size will cover two win lines, so if you were to play for 10 cents, the total cost of each spin would be $5 if playing all lines. You can however change the number of lines and play 80, 60, 40 or 20 instead.
To gain a win you’ll need to land at least three consecutive symbols from left to right on a win line starting with the left most reel. Obviously the largest wins are reserved for when you land 5 in a row, and landing a full house of the male and female gladiators will win you 250 and 200 coins respectively. The gladiator in action, the lion, the helmet and the shield/sword pay between 100 and 75 coins and are joined by the four playing cards suits to complete the symbols. Each of the symbols is stacked on the reels, so you’ll find that wins come in clusters more than individually.
The wild in the game is the title symbol and will substitute for any other symbol apart from the bonus one. This wild is once again stacked and should it take up a reel completely on the left hand reel, the matching reel on the right hand slot will now also become completely wild.
The scatter symbol at the slot is the coliseum. This symbol appears on reels 1, 3 and 5 of both slots and acts as a scatter, where you’ll need at least 3 or more to activate the free spins round.

The number of spins you’ll receive is based upon the number of scatters landed to activate the feature. Land the minimum three and you’ll have eight free spins as well as a win of 2x your stake. Land 4 and you’ll have twelve free spins and a win of 5x your stake. However land 5 or more scatters and you’ll have 20 free spins as well as an instant win of 20 times your total stake.
Spartacus Gladiator of Rome Conclusion
This slot by WMS is certainly different. With two sets of reels and a hundred win lines, this isn’t a slot you can play aimlessly – there is far too much going for this. Having stacked symbols across all of the reels makes for a game where you’ll achieve multiple wins often, which will appeal to many players. The original use of the wild symbol, as well as the free spins round with added wins only enhances the playability of this game. Having played once, this is a lot you’ll be sure return to again.
