The Gladiator of Rome slot game was created by the team at 1X2 Gaming. The game was released to the world back in April 2014, so it is one of their older games on the market.
There is a clean and easy to use nature about the interface of the Gladiator of Rome slot with the reels sitting in front of the Coliseum. The dramatic music is very much in keeping with the setting of the game. This is a game that can be played across desktop, mobile and tablet devices.
If you think of the film with Russell Crowe, Gladiator, then you get the setting of this five reel, 20 payline video slot. As you can guess from the name and the background of the slot, there is a strong Roman theme to everything about it.
As ever there is a mixture of higher and lower paying symbols within the regular game. The lower icons are the J, Q K and the A whereas there is a more Roman theme to the higher paying ones. These include two gladiators – a bare-chested one and a stabbing one, a charioteer, an emblem, a golden eagle and one of the Caesars. There is a Wild icon which is the angry fighter while the two gladiators fighting form the bonus symbol.
There is only the one bonus feature in the Gladiator of Rome slot game but it is a pretty decent one. It is the Free Spins feature which in order to activate you need to land at least three bonus icons across the middle three reels, reels 2, 3 and 4.
When you activate the Free Spins feature you are immediately rewarded with 30 free spins, no matter how many bonus symbols you find on the reels. That is a decent enough prize but there is an extra add on to come too.
The first 10 spins come with a 1x multiplier to each win. The second 10 spins come with a 2x multiplier which doubles any wins that come along in these spins. When you get to the third set of 10 spins all wins are trebled via a 3x multiplier, which is where the tidy wins can suddenly build up. Unfortunately this feature doesn’t retrigger but it is worth activating even once.
The Gladiator of Rome slot game has a very high RTP rating of 97.32% which is way above the average and very much on the side of the player.
There are a lot of Roman-themed games out on the market but despite that, there is a lot to like about the Gladiator of Rome offering, which is well worth its place in this genre. You do need to launch the feature to get the bigger wins out of the game but there isn’t too much wrong with that. This easy to use, graphically strong machine carries a medium variance and comes very much recommended.
