The item depicting a princess launches a feature called Wild x2. If it appears on the top line of any reel, it gets animated. The beautiful young woman then throws rose petals beneath her. When they touch symbols, it changes them into wilds which can replace any symbol to form a winning combination. These combinations also pay out twice as much as the usual.
Gladiator smash Wild reel
The hero symbol, depicting a gladiator with a hornless helmet, starts a feature called Gladiator Smash Wild Reel. If it appears on the third reel, a white marble column covers all the spots on this reel. The gladiator then smashes it with a blow of his sword. The symbols on this reel are then turned into wilds and can replace any other symbol in order to form winning combinations.
The Colysseum symbol is a scatter symbol. It can therefore make you win money even if it appears on an inactive payment line. In order to win 60, 750 or 3.000 coins, you need to get respectively 3, 4 or 5 of them on screen.
The symbol depicting a door launches a feature called Click me. If you get at least three of them anywhere on your screen, it invites you to click on it. By clicking it, you win a random amount.
If you manage to get 3 villain symbols, depicting a gladiator with horns on his helmet, you start the bonus game entitled Gladiator Battle. Unfortunately, it is rather too classical and simplistic. That is rather disappointing compared with the originality of other features. The bonus game takes place in an ancient arena. You must choose one of the players in the struggle between the hero and the villain. Every strike of the sword of your champion and all the blows he manages to avoid make you win money at the end of the fight.
The features of Gladiator prove themselves to be quite innovative, even the classical wilds are reinvented by Betsoft in this slot machine. Also, despite a rather disappointing bonus game, this slot machine is truly exceptional and offers impressive graphics and a beautiful music.
