Get ready to battle your way through Gladiator of Rome, an online slot game from 1×2 gaming. The five-reel, 10-line slot game takes you on a journey through Rome’s famous Colosseum, where fighting to the death gets you awarded with free spins, cash prizes, and multipliers. If you’re brave enough to test your luck, skip the free game and play for real money.
Board your chariot to the Colosseum where you’ll find an array of gladiator-themed symbols fighting for space on five reels with three rows up. The background of the game isn’t the inside of the arena, however. Instead, you see the Colosseum in the background surrounded by sandy ground and a clear blue sky. The game’s music is exactly what you’d expect in a game featuring gladiators from Ancient Rome — a thumping, bass-filled tune that makes you feel like you’re ready to defeat your enemy and conquer new land.
As the on-screen gladiators engage in battle you’ll see symbols, such as a golden eagle, a sword and shield emblem, and a gladiator on a chariot, spin past you. Will your reel stop spinning on the Julius Caesar symbol or will you see a bare-chested gladiator ready to battle? If you want to enjoy your winnings, you need to make it out of the Colosseum alive.
There’s more than one way to win a battle, and there’s also more than one way to place a bet when you’re playing Gladiator of Rome. Simply adjust the amount of coins you want to bet per spin and the value of the coins to start playing. You can bet as low as $0.20 and as high as $25 for your chance to win the $1000 jackpot or maximum winnings of $22,500. If you prefer to make betting simple, click the Maximus Bet button to the right of the Spin button. This places the maximum bet amount and spins the reels automatically.
The game also has an autoplay feature, which is ideal for anyone who wants to play uninterrupted. To set the autoplay feature, click the Auto Bet button. A screen will appear that lets you set your bet amount and the number of spins you’d like to play. Once activated, the autoplay feature will continually make the reels spin and stop automatically for the number of rounds you indicated when you set your bet.
To win, you need to match at least three consecutive symbols, along the win line, running from left to right. The game’s card symbols — the J, Q, and K surrounded by an Ancient Roman head wreath in gold —.are the lowest paying symbols. There are also seven high-value symbols — a bare-chested gladiator, a stabbing gladiator, a sword and shield emblem, a gladiator riding a chariot, a shield, a golden eagle, and Julius Caesar.
Unfortunately, you won’t find a lot of special features in the Gladiator of Rome online slot game. However, the lack of multiple features does keep the game simple enough that it can easily be understood by beginners — and it’s still fun enough for seasoned gladiators.
The game does boast a wild symbol that features a very angry gladiator — you definitely don’t want to be his opponent in a fight to the death. The wild symbol substitutes any other symbol on the board to give you the highest payout possible, and it can appear in any game reel. While the wild symbol allows you to win more money, the game doesn’t really get interesting until the scatter symbol starts appearing.
In Gladiator of Rome, the scatter symbol isn’t designed like the scatter symbols in other online slot games from 1×2 gaming. The symbol boasts two gladiators in the heat of battle and says the word “bonus” across the bottom. However, Gladiator of Rome doesn’t have an actual bonus game. Instead, the bonus scatter symbol begins a free spin round if you land three consecutive symbols from left to right. Also, the scatter symbol only appears on reels two, three, and four, so you can’t match more than three in a row. Landing all three symbols in one spin awards you a whopping 30 free spins, which gives you the opportunity to really increase your winnings — thanks to the multipliers. During your first 10 free spins, you have a 1X multiplier, which gives you normal winnings. However, the second 10 free spins give you a 2X multiplier, which doubles your winnings, and your third set of 10 free spins comes with a 3X multiplier, which triples your winnings. You can’t achieve additional free spins during the free spin round and the card symbols are removed from the reels to increase your chance at winning.
Even though Gladiator of Rome doesn’t have many special features, the game is still pretty fun. It’s well designed too, making it a great addition to the collection of Roman gladiator online slot games. Whether you’re new to online slots or you’re a pro, this game is a battle that you don’t want to miss!
