Gladiator Slot

´╗┐´╗┐There are at least 3 different Gladiator slots online (by Playtech, Betsoft and Microgaming) that I am aware of but easily the best of them is the version created by Playtech, based on the Gladiator movie by Ridley Scott and available at Playtech-powered casinos like Betfred Casino, Tote Casino and Bet365 Casino.

Until the excellent Iron Man 2 slot came along, the Gladiator slot was my favourite Playtech game, just pipping the Rome And Glory slot which has gameplay based on the popular Book Of Ra Deluxe game. Gladiator is real eye-candy, uisng graphics, video sequences and sounds from the movie but it also has good gameplay. It is relatively low volatility which means it can be tough getting big wins from the game but gives lots of entertainment value. Great for low rollers and even a higher roller like myself will enjoy it I think.

There are two bonus features in the gladiator slot. One is your standard "coin awards" thing whis gets awarded when the wild symbols land on reels 2, 3 and 4 simultaneously. The wilds are only on those 3 reels by the way. Typically you will get between 10 and 15 times your bet but you can get up to 45x on very rare occasions. Th ebetter feature is the free spins bonus.

The free spins are triggered by 3 or more Colosseum scatters in view. It's a slightly complex bonus feature to describe to be honest. In the worst case scenario you could get just 12 free spins at 2x, although whenever the Emperor appears on reel 3 you get 3 additional spins. The most I have had is 30 free spins but the potential is there for more. However the real rewards come with the randomly awarded extra scatter symbol where one symbol is designated a scatter and when 3 or more appear, they expand to fill the whole reel. It's like Book Of Ra Deluxe and Rome And Glory in this context and while it probably only happens 1-in-3 times when you get the bonus feature (on average), it can lead to a really good return.

You can also get an extra wild symbol but it's rare and really isn't as lucrative as the expanding scatter symbol but either way, the Galdiator slot is an excellent game which is always entertaining and occasionally very rewarding.


You can play Gladiator slots at the following safe casinos:


Betfred (Playtech) - A good Playtech casino with an improving games section too. Cashout times are above average and customer support responsive although competition on Playtech software is now quite intense.

Paddy Power

Paddy Power (Playtech) - A really good Playtech casino with no reverse pending to hamper the fast cashout times. The slots choice is excellent with all the Marvel slots and more plus customer service is very good too.


Tote (Playtech) - A favourite of mine for some years with lightening cashouts and all the Playtech games including the Marvel slots, although Tote has now been purchased by Betfred which may change things.
