Gladiator Slot Review

The Gladiator slots game can be found at Playtech casinos. Playtech do not publish the house edge of their games, however several established Playtech casinos have started releasing this information and on the CasinoMeister forum, the Boyle Casino Manager confirmed that Playtech slots games are not configurable at the operators end. As such, it is possible to identify that the house edge of Gladiator is 5.91% and should be valid at all Playtech casinos.

“My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions, loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife. And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next.”

Gladiator had 5 reels, 25 paylines and you can bet 10 coins on each of the paylines.

The ‘Helmet’ symbol is wild.

There are two bonus features when playing Gladiator. The first bonus feature is activated when you receive 3 or more of the ‘Coliseum’ bonus symbol anywhere on the reels. When this happens you will be taken to a new screen showing 20 tiles in 4 rows. You start by picking a tile from the first row. Each tile picked can result in one of four things happening; you are awarded a prize and allowed to pick another prize from the same row, you are awarded a prize and allowed to pick another prize from the row above, you win all prizes in that column or you win a prize and the feature ends. The first row or tiles awards complimentary spins, the second multipliers, the third changes the displayed symbol into a scatter symbol for the duration of the complimentary spins and the fourth changes the displayed symbol into a wild symbol for the duration of the complimentary spins. During the complimentary spins, if you receive the ‘Emperor’ symbol anywhere on reel 3 you are awarded three extra complimentary spins. If you won additional scatters symbols they don’t behave in exactly the same way as normal scatter symbols. Instead any time you receive three or more of the scatter symbol anywhere on the reels they turn all symbols on the reels they appear into matching symbols and then you are paid for each payline as if they scatter symbols were in a row starting from the left.

The second bonus feature is activated when you receive the Helmet wild symbol on reels 2, 3 and 4. When this happens all the symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4 will change into Helmet symbols coloured bronze, silver and gold. Each Helmet symbol will award a prize, with gold Helmets awarding the largest prise and bronze the smallest.


With some very entertaining bonus features and fantastic gameplay and graphic, the above average house edge of Gladiator is forgivable.
