The Wombat says: You’re in Ancient Rome, and although you could just do a bit of sightseeing and have a nice bowl of pasta and have a few games on the Pizza Prize slot, you’ve decided to enter the infamous gladiatorial ring and fight for your honour, instead. If you’re a fan of movies (and slots!) based on epic tales, and you’re willing to endure endless suffering in the name of glory, then it is possible that Gladiator of Rome slot is a game for you!
We have plenty of tough guys here at Wombat Casino- like Thor in the Thunderstruck slot for example. This tough guy’s from Rome.
Whether this slot is based on the Oscar-winning movie by Ridley Scott, we have no idea. Although the shirtless gladiator dude does look a bit like Russell Crowe (according to Mrs Wombat). So, will it be a thumbs up or a thumbs down from Emperor Wombat? Let’s find out…
Gladitor of Rome Slot Game Play
Gladiator of Rome is a 5 reel slot with 3 rows and 20 paylines, and instead of the Coliseum itself, you seem to be playing in the desert somewhere. 1×2 Gaming haven’t been very creative with this slot’s graphics. The design is pretty basic, but still, there are some nice touches including the ‘Maximus Bet’ option, which made this wombat chuckle heartily to himself, and the on screen commentary that includes: ‘At my signal, unleash the Free Spins!’ Overall, the game captures the Ancient Roman theme well enough. We can imagine the gladiator taking on the snorting beast in the Wild Toro slot if he was born in modern times.
Now to the reels! You’ll find 7 high value symbols to make up your winning combos; the sword-wielding gladiator, the topless gladiator, the sturdy shield, the dude on a chariot, the gladiator emblem, the smug Roman Emperor and the golden eagle, plus J, Q and K that make up the lower values.
The Wild symbol in this game is made up of a fearless fighting Gladiator, who will substitute for everything except the Bonus symbol, which is the 2 Gladiators mid battle
Free Spins Bonus
If the Gladiator Bonus symbol appears on reels 2, 3 and 4 all at once, on the same spin, you’ll trigger the Free Spins game – which means it’s time to get dizzy Wombat Fans.
You have the chance to win 30 free spins plus a nice little multiplier that increases the further you get through the round. For the first 10 spins it’s a 1x multiplier, after 20 spins your bets are multiplied by 2x, and if you manage to play 30 Free Spins, it’s a 3x multiplier for you. Sweet! Keep tabs on your Spin Multiplier progress in the top right hand corner of the reels. Oh, and there’s another little treat for you in Gladiators of Rome slot, yes, the low-value J, Q and K symbols are replaced by higher paying icons in this round, which means you stack up bigger payouts! Sadly, the Free Spins can’t be re-triggered…
Hmmm, we’re not 100% about the Gladiator of Rome slot game. With no other bonus features other than the Free Spins round it feels a bit difficult to score big. And actually getting the Bonus across reels 2,3 and 4 simultaneously is a bit like a fight to the death to be honest… That said, it’s easy on the eye, and the Roman theme is one that we never get tired of. Try it out for yourself, and let the battle commence!
