Gladiator Jackpot Slot review

Gladiator Jackpot has 5 reels and 25 payline as is nearly identical to its predecessor, Gladiator. The difference is that the new version is now a progressive jackpot slot. It is based on the epic Gladiator film which is arguably one of the most popular films of all time – as a result, you will see clips from movie. You can play Gladiator Jackpot from 25p a spin to £1,250 a spin.

As with the non-jackpot version, there is a Coliseum Bonus feature which is activated by obtaining 3 Coliseum scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. The feature begins as you see a grid of 4 rows each with 5 columns. Pick 1 stone from each row – these will reveal the following:

  • First row will reveal your number of free spins
  • Second row will reveal your multiplier value
  • Third row will reveal the Extra Scatter symbol to be used during the free spins
  • Fourth row will reveal the Extra Wild symbol to be used during the free spins

In addition to this, you can get an additional 3 free spins if see the Emperor symbol on the middle reel during the free spins. In total, this free spins feature can give you 24 free spins with a 3x multiplier. This feature won’t be triggered very often but to compensate, the rewards from the feature tend to be of a larger nature. The 2nd feature is the Gamble feature which is pretty standard and you can double your win amount up to 5 times.

The main attraction is the Gladiator Jackpot Bonus feature which you can activate by obtaining 3 Helmet wild symbols on the 3 middle reels. What is good is that you can trigger this feature from the base game and the Coliseum free spins feature. However, you can only win the jackpot when triggered from the base game.

The ‘Pick Me’ style bonus round allows you to reveal 9 helmets which are either bronze, silver or gold. You will certainly win cash prizes depending on your combination but you are ideally looking for the gold helmets. If you reveal 9 gold helmets, you will trigger the Gladiator progressive jackpot. Big winners on this slot game include a UK player who won £655,716 at bet365 Casino. If you like progressive jackpot slots, you should try some of the Marvel titles such as The Incredible Hulk and The Avengers (powered by Playtech too).
