Let’s get those togas back on Wombat fans for a trip back to Ancient Rome in the Gladiator Legends slot game by Hacksaw Gaming. Those are the slots wizards behind games such as the Warrior Ways slot and others.
Fruities come in all shapes and sizes, and the theme can be the make or break of a game.
Ancient Rome seems to be a increasingly popular as a theme, and why not? Let´s journey back to the era of the gladiator and see what all the fuss is about.
This game’s maximum payout is a chunky 10,000x. Not as big as Raging Rex 2, but not one to complain about either. There are other games with higher top payouts, but this slot with ten pay-lines packs a punch. The 10,000x max payout is decent.
Gladiator Legends Design
This game was created and developed by the team of designers at Hacksaw Gaming, and they have done a great job of hitting all of the criteria that makes a good slot: impressive graphics, smooth gameplay, adjustable betting amounts and many other things that combine to make this game enticing and immersive. Good job Hacksaw!
Sticking to the game’s theme, this game has been designed to look retro with a nod to Roman times. Quite a change from games like the Deff Leppard Hysteria slot and other games with more modern themes.
The reels are laid out in a five by four set up. The usual card symbols make up the lower payers in this game, all given a Roman flavour. Other symbols in this game include a Mallet, an Axe, a Battle-Axe and two different Sword symbols. There´s plenty of fighting going on in other words if you’re a gladiator. Let´s see if we can fight for some wins, I want to see that thumbs up from the big man in the stands.
There are two wild symbols in this game, one of which is a regular wild and takes the place of different symbols other than the bonus scatters. Look out for the Wild symbol with ‘Wild’ written above its head.
Gladiator Legends Gameplay
The game works pretty well, and when you first start it, you’ll be treated to some great images and a soundtrack that sets the atmosphere.
Gladiator Legends Bonus Features
The first bonus feature is the VS symbols which present you with a stacked wild on whichever reel the symbol lands on. The two gladiators that are fighting on this stacked wild both have a multiplier attached. The winner will be the multiplier applied to that Wild. You can land multiple VS symbols on one single spin.
These VS symbols are also important in the two other bonus rounds which are triggered by their respective bonus symbols, as follows;
Champions of the Arena
The Arena symbol triggers this round. You continue to spin the reels during the round, and the action continues as long as you land at least one VS symbol per round. The usual feature applies with the VS symbols and their multipliers, but these multipliers are all added to the top of each reel. Once the round ends, all multipliers will be added together, and your stake is multiplied by this value.
The silver coin multiplier is added to the reel it lands on, the Gold coin multiplier is added to all reels.
Unleash the Beast
I know that sounds like something Russell Crowe might say, but this refers to the other feature. During this round, the reels are spun as before, with VS multipliers being added to their respective reels.
The 3rd reel is only unlocked once a VS symbol has landed on reels 1, 2, 4 and 5. This middle reel has a special VS symbol which increases all other reel multipliers.
Gladiator Legends Summary
The Gladiator Legends slot game is a good entertainer with a few different angles in it. The graphic design makes it very easy on the eye, and the gameplay is smooth and enjoyable. Definitely worth a trip to the amphitheater for a spin.
