Gladiator Jackpot Slot Review

The Gladiator Jackpot slot is exactly the same as the Gladiator slot but with a progressive jackpot attached. It still has 5 reels and 25 paylines and has been created by Playtech. The slot game is based on the fantastic Gladiator film which became one of the most successful films of all time.

You can play Gladiator Jackpot from 25p a spin to £1,250 a spin. Apart from the progressive jackpot, you can win a 5,000 coin jackpot by getting 5 Emperor symbols (Joaquin Phoenix). Furthermore, the slot game really comes to life as you see clips from the iconic movie as you play.

There are 2 main bonus features with the first being the Coliseum Bonus feature – you can trigger it by getting 3 Coliseum scatter symbols. Click ‘Start’ the initiate the game – you will see a grid of 4 rows and 5 columns from which you need to pick 1 stone starting from the bottom row and so on:

  • The first row will determine your number of free spins
  • The second row will reveal the multiplier value
  • The third row will reveal the Extra Scatter Symbol for use during the free spins
  • The fourth row will reveal an Extra Wild symbol for use during the free spins (only Gladiator movie characters)

Once the feature commences, look out for the Emperor symbol on the middle reel as this will reward you with an extra 3 free spins – in total, you can earn up to 24 free spins with a 3x multiplier. If you combine this will an extra scatter symbol and an extra wild symbol, you could be in line for decent wins.

The other main bonus feature and main attraction of the game is the Gladiator Jackpot Bonus feature which is triggered when you get 3 Gladiator Helmet wild symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4. You can trigger the feature during both the base game and during the Coliseum Bonus feature which is good.

9 helmets in either gold, silver or bronze are revealed to give you cash prizes – this is a ‘Pick Me’ style feature where you have 9 picks. If you trigger the Gladiator Jackpot feature during the free spins, you cannot win the jackpot – the jackpot can only be won when triggered from the base game. However, if you reveal 9 Gold helmets, you will win the progressive jackpot!

The biggest Gladiator Jackpot win to date was a £2,015,367 winner which happened on the 14th of October 2013. The most recent win took place on the 28th of November 2013 and was a cool £536,935.
