Graphics & Sound
The quality of the graphics and sound that Microgaming provides is absolutely fantastic and top notch. They have an impeccable reputation of making the most stunning graphics and true-to-life sound effects that will truly transport you to “that specific theme” they used in any of their slot games. Most people love to play games incorporated with Microgaming software because they have smooth animation and engaging yet non-interfering sounds. In Gladiator, you will see an opening short clip of the gladiator who is triumphant in the arena, and as a reward he gets to ask for the hand of the woman whom he loves dearly. The symbols are drawn in a semi-realistic manner, and because they are pastel colored, you will play here for a long time because it will not hurt or strain your eyes. Simple animated programming is used on the symbols when you successfully hit winning combinations. The overall graphic design of Gladiator displays the brown color of the sand (the color of the arena ground). Other colors used are red, blue, green, pink, purple, yellow, orange, gold, silver, black and white.
Roman-themed music and the occasional cheering of the audience are the usual background music and sound effects you will hear while playing this particular online slot game.
There are no card deck symbols available in the Gladiator online video slot. The regular symbols that you will find in Gladiator are the Helmet, Sword and Shield, Harp, Wine Amphora, a Platter of Food, the Fountain, Chariot Race, a Fighter, and of course, the lovely Maiden and the Gladiator.
The Wild Symbol is the Gladiator Gold Coin. It acts as a substitute for all other symbols (except for the scatter symbol) in order to help you complete a winning combination. You will be paid varying prize amounts (refer to the payout table) when you are able to form winning combinations with multiple Gladiator Gold Coin wild symbols.
Mixed Pay Feature – The Gladiator symbol and the Maiden symbol both can act as wild symbols in order to complete a Mixed Pay winning combination. This simply means that you are able to create a Mixed Pay winning combination as long as you get a Gladiator symbol and a Maiden symbol in a line on an activated pay line. Please take note that the Gladiator Gold Coin wild symbol can also substitute for a Gladiator symbol or a Maiden symbol to help you complete a Mixed Pay winning combination (pays out from left to right, and at least one of the symbols must appear on the 1st reel).
The Scatter Symbol is the Roman Imperial Gold Eagle. The scatter symbol is not required to appear in a line (on an enabled pay line) for you to win. The Roman Imperial Gold Eagle scatter symbol can be found scattered anywhere on the 5 reels, and you are able to form winning combinations as long as there are 2 or more Roman Imperial Gold Eagle scatter symbols that appear. Your winnings are calculated by multiplying the Roman Imperial Gold Eagle scatter symbol combination payout (refer to the Payout table) by the total number of coins you’ve bet. If you manage to get 3 or more Roman Imperial Gold Eagle scatter symbols, you will trigger the Free Spin Bonus Feature game.
Please take note that if you get a scatter win and a regular win, then you are paid out for both of these wins, because the Roman Imperial Gold Eagle scatter symbol is not required to come out on an enabled pay line for you to win. Scatter awards are independent from pay line awards, and thus they are added to the pay line win.
There is no Gamble Feature in this game.
Free Spin Bonus Feature Game – If you manage to get 3 or more Roman Imperial Gold Eagle scatter symbols anywhere on the 5 reels, you will activate the Free Spin Bonus Feature game.
You are generously awarded 100 Free Spins!
You cannot re-activate the Free Spin Bonus Feature game while playing out the Free Spins.
Please note that since the Roman Imperial Gold Eagle symbol is a scatter symbol, your winnings are calculated by multiplying the Roman Imperial Gold Eagle scatter symbol combination payout (refer to the Payout table) by the total number of coins you’ve bet.
Once the Free Spin Bonus Feature game is over, you will be then taken back to the main Gladiator online slot game, and your winnings from the Free Spin games will be included to your overall balance.
