You can now do battle with the most fearsome warriors of the Roman empire or head to Metropolis to side with Batman or Superman in the latest video slots from Playtech.
Gladiator Road to Rome
This 5 reel, 25 payline video slot from Playtech is an updated jackpot version of the original Gladiator game which first hit the virtual shelves way back in 2008. Just like the original, it takes its cue from the Oscar-winning film Gladiator that starred Russell Crowe as the Roman soldier Maximus Decimus Meridius. The original version of this game might be something of a veteran but just like the film its stood the test of time rather well.
With the baying crown of the Colosseum in the background, you’ll see a selection of characters from the film spinning around the reels. Emperor Commodus (Joaquin Phoenix) is the top payer, offering awards of up to 500 coins per payline. The Gladiator is the wild and expands to fill whole reels when it hits.
There are 2 main extras on offer here. In the Colosseum Free Games feature, you’ll receive 5 free spins. Before the feature begins, pick from the shields to add 3 tasty extras to that seemingly small initial allocation. Goodies include more free spins, doubling or trebling multipliers, symbol payouts boosts, scatter pays for chosen symbols and nudges.
In the Gladiator Bonus feature, you’ll get the pick of a selection of helmets. What you win here depends on whether the helmets turn bronze, silver or gold – if 9 helmets turn gold, you’ll take down the progressive jackpot which at the time of writing stands at an impressive £630,000!
It might be an oldie but Gladiator Road To Rome remains a goody. The visuals are perfectly fine and the sweeping soundtrack gives the game a suitably epic feel. Both of the bonus rounds offer some very decent potential too. Throw in the progressive jackpot element and Gladiator Road to Rome becomes a very enjoyable proposition. If you enjoyed the original, this is a must play game. Read the full Gladiator Road to Rome video slot review.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is the latest game from the DC Comics range – based on the 2016 blockbuster film which starred Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill, it’s a 5 reel, 25 payline offering that can be played from as little as 25p per spin. Set in Metropolis, it has excellent visuals and the bonus features to match!
It comes with a Shifting Wilds feature – look out for the Batman or Superman wilds as they become shifting wilds. Batman moves 1 reel to the left and Superman 1 reel to the right with each spin until they reach the end reel. If they both appear on the same row, you will activate the Batman v Superman Free Games feature.
With 8 free spins initially granted, you side with Batman or Superman – it comes with shifting wilds and when the 2 super heroes meet, they do battle. If your chosen super hero wins, you get extra wilds and free spins. There’s also a Dawn of Justice Free Games feature which is the best feature in my opinion.
Look out for the Doomsday wild as this appears fully stacked to take over the reel – it then shifts with 1 reel to the left with every free spin. If you see Superman, Batman or Wonder Woman (played by Gal Gadot), the Doomsday wild reel moves back 1 reel.
The feature only ends once the Doomsday wild reaches reel 1 – when it does, you get 1 last free spin with it duplicating to cover both reels 1 and 2! Finally, there’s 4 progressive jackpots to be randomly won with the Grand Jackpot offering over £1 million. Decide who to side with in the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice video slot review.
