The Arena of Gold slot can be found at Microgaming casinos. Microgaming as a standard now publish the house edge information of all their slots at any online casino that holds a UKGC license (this is a requirement for all UKGC licensed casinos). As such we can say that the House Edge of Arena of Gold is 3.8%. When playing at any venue that does not hold a UKGC license and does not specifically publish the Return to Player information for their game, this information should be used as a guideline only as we cannot confirm whether or not this game is configurable.
Arena of Gold is played on a grid consisting of 5 reels and each reel is 3 symbols high. You get 25 paylines, playing from left to right.
The theme for this slot is ancient Rome. The Arena mentioned in the title is the Colosseum, which helps to form the background. Symbols include a Caesar and the gladiators who will be fighting in front of him. The slot is rendered in light pastel colours, which helps to create a gentle tone to what is a brutal backdrop. p>
Wilds – The “Caesar” symbol is Wild and will substitute for all symbols other than Scatters.
Scatter – The Scatter symbol if the “Colosseum”. It will pay out in combinations of 3 or more regardless of paylines and it will trigger the Free Spins feature if you can land 3 or more on a single spin.
Jackpot Symbol – The Jackpot symbol is the “Gold Coin”. You need 6 or more of them on the reels on a single spin to trigger the Jackpot feature.
Free Spins – If you trigger the Free Spins you will be given 5 in total. 3 Scatters during the feature will award an additional 3 Free Spins on top of that. Reels 2, 3 and 4 become one symbol that is counted as 9 symbols, except Scatters, which only count as 1.
Golden Respins – If you land 6 or more of the Golden Coins they will stick in place for 3 respins. During those respins only Golden Coin symbols can land on the reels and if one does they will stick in place and the respins will reset to 3. At the end of the feature the value of each coin is added together to give a single instant win and there is also the chance that you can land the Mini or the Mega Jackpot. To win the Maxi Jackpot you need to fill every symbol space with Gold Coins.
Arena of Gold is a slot that ticks every box on our list of wants for a slot game. You get Wilds, Free Spins and a Bonus Jackpot. The house edge is not great but not bad either and it looks okay. Essentially, what you have here is a very solid slot. One won’t blow you away but at the same time one that you will enjoy playing if you choose to do so.
