Gladiators Slot is based on the legendary warriors of ancient Rome, but these gladiators are very definitely different from the fighters in the Roman arena. The action in this game takes place in an underwater arena, and the gladiators are fish.
The background of this game is light aquamarine blue, and the underwater arena is surrounded by the requisite stone benches, but there are no spectators. The sound effects of the Gladiators slot is the sort of heroic music you would expect from any production that includes gladiators, but the gladiators themselves are designed in a cartoon like style, enhancing the amusing and entertaining feel to the game.
This game has five reels and twenty one pay lines, and is a creation by the European giant Endorphina.
Powerful Weapons Are Wielded
The gladiators in Gladiators slot are not the big aggressive fish you would expect, like sharks or barracudas, but some of the smallest fish of the oceans. The five different gladiators are dressed in full armour, with a helmet, and wield powerful weapons like fish hooks and fish nets, as well as tridents and axes. They all seem quite determined to win their fight and defeat the opponent. These warriors come with different coloured backgrounds, yellow and blue, or red and green. There is even a mighty warrior arriving in a fighting chariot drawn by two seahorses. The lower value symbols are the traditional playing cards from ten through to the ace.
Laurel Wreaths and Sharks in Chains
There are two main symbols. One is the Laurel Wreath of victory, and this is the Wild in the Gladiators slot. The Wild symbol can replace any other symbol in the Canadian casino games to form winning combinations, apart from the Scatter. The Scatter symbol is a Shark tied up in chains, probably this game’s equivalent of the lions in the ancient Roman arena. This Scatter symbol will trigger the free spins bonus round, and the number of Sharks you landed on the reels will determine the number of free spins you will be given. When three Scatters appear on the reels you will win ten free spins. Four Shark Scatters appearing will give you twenty free spins, and you will win a huge fifty free spins if you find five Shark Scatters on the reels.
The winning gladiator team is announced after every free spin, and there could be some great cash rewards. All wins you may make in the free spins bonus round, will automatically be doubled. Each warrior on the winning team is awarded a Laurel Wreath, and this will remain in place for any following free spins. The Laurel Wreaths are removed when no more gladiators appear. Free spins can be won during play of the Free spins round.
There is a jackpot of one thousand coins offered in the Gladiators slot to anyone finding five of the Green Gladiator Fish symbols on an active pay line.
The Endorphina Gamble Feature
After each win, you can decide to try the Take a Risk feature. You will see four cards face down, and one face up. You pick one of the four and if it is a higher value than the dealer’s card your winnings will be doubled. If your card is a lower value, however, you lose these wins and this round will be over. You can click the button marked Take a Win, to save your winnings.
Gladiators slot is an original idea, and the cartoon like graphics offer a fun filled game. The free spins round also offer some really good payouts.
