I played a couple of Gladiator slots so far, but this one from Betsoft wasn’t on that list and I wanted to try it although I was sure that the slot from Playtech is the best! I opened the game, the graphics didn’t impress me and also the reels are spinning in a not so nice mode, but I decided to keep playing to see its features and payout rate. Only 20-30 spins passed and I caught 3 doors, I had to choose one of them , I chose the 3rd one, gave me 69 credits, than another one that gave me 34 credits and the last one gave me 43 and also the collect message. Because it is a 5 reel slot with 30 paylines, it has a minimum bet of 0.30 euro, this was also the bet that I used to play. I realized that this slot has a lot of interesting features, for example, on the 3rd reel, the gladiator symbol landed and activated the Gladiator Smash Wild Reel feature, an interesting feature where a slab will cover the entire reel and the gladiator will smash it revealing the entire wild turned into wild!

It was an interesting feature although it doesn’t bring you a big amount of money, but all the features are making from this slot a decent one, so I will give a 9 for these features!

Now, regarding the graphics, I can give only an 8 because the game seems to be a little old, the symbols aren’t looking very good but overall is decent regarding the graphics and sounds!
I want to say that I don’t like the way the reels are spinning and also the payout rate, the features are paying small amounts and I don’t think that is possible to win big amounts!

There are many slots based on the history of Roman gladiators, and always exhibit similar images like princesses, coliseums, beasts, shields, swords, emperors, etc., and this one is the version of Betsoft, and now I can realize it is not the most popular one and the reason can be attributed almost certainly to its payment system, because in the other hand, many players have quite liked the collection of special features incorporated into this slot, and certainly they are not few as we’ll see:

- Princess Wild x2: when a symbol identified with the face of a princess appears in the first box at the top of each reel, this feature is enabled and the entire reel is turned into wild that not only works as substitute of standard symbols, but also doubles the payout in which it participates.
- Gladiator Smash Wild Reel: is activated when a Hero Gladiator symbol appears anywhere on reel 3, then such reel becomes wild and serves as substitute for standard symbols.
- Click Me: This feature is triggered when 3 doors on the same active payline appear, then you must click on the door you choose to receive instant bonuses until the moment it appears some value accompanied by the word collect.
- Scatter: 3 or more symbols with the image of the Coliseum give us an instant bonus and prizes are included in paytable. To be worthwhile, you should get 4 or 5 scatters, because award for 3 scatters is almost symbolic.
- Gladiator Battle: This is my favorite feature and is triggered when the symbols Hero, Coliseum and / or Villain appear consecutively on paylines 1, 2, or 3 on reels 2, 3, and 4, then the screen makes transition to the arena of Coliseum where you must choose your warrior to fight for your bonus. Usually awards given here are above average for other special features.

Overall I consider this a very entertaining slot and this is because constantly some special feature is activated to break the routine and give some awards too, it is possible the complaint of us players are focused on low earnings during the base game, but also keep in mind that this video slot pay hits both left to right and right to left, and the only way to balance this characteristic is decreasing prices in paytable.

Gladiator is a video slot game with 30 paylines. This game was created in Betsoft. I haven't had a chance to play this game so often. The reason for that is that in most casino which have it in their offer the minimum bet is 0.05 euros per line. When you gather all 30 paylines it comes to a 1.5 euro bet. That is too much for me. Also my balance doesn’t allow it most of the time. That is a real pity because this game offers a few features and it seems very interesting to me. The first time I tried this game in a few minutes I got 3 scatter symbols with doors and activated the bonus game. I first thought that I activated a simple pick up bonus but when I clicked on one of the symbols the bonus didn't end there and I was offered another pick . That repeated a few times until the text collect appeared under one of the doors. From this bonus I cashed in over 60 euros. I kept playing this game for some time more and lost almost half of the money I had won in the bonus round and I switched to another game. After that I came back here a few more times but I would stay here only a short while. Anyway I really liked this game but playing on a 1.5 euro bet per spin is just too much for me. I think the Gladiators are a very popular theme for slot games. A lot of software providers offer games with the same theme. Beside this Betsoft game I tried the games with the same name in Playtech and Microgaming. This one created in Betsoft is not better, at least in my opinion and by my first impression, than the other one created in Playtech.

Overall Betsoft created a good slot game. I recommend this game to everyone.

Gladiator is another great game from Playtech.
This game is inspired from the same movie from the year 2000 which won 5 oscars. Beside the standard poker symbols it has the symbols from the movie General Maximus, Senator Gracchus, Emperor marcus Aurelius, Lucilla.This game has a lot of fans just like the movie itself. Personally I never was a big fan of this movie but the game itself is very interesting with lots of features and a chance to win some really big payouts.
I met this game a long time ago and it was one of the first games I played in some Playtech casino. I don't remember which casino it was exactly but I took some no deposit bonus and didn't have much success, I lost a lot of money playing here.The wins from the free spins were too small to mention. Later on I came back to this game from time to time with variable success. I had some big wins a few times but most of the time I would just lose money. I can't say that I've won a lot of money playing this slot and that is probably why Gladiator isn't one of my favorite games coming from Playtech. Still I have to admit that it's a great game and I come back to it often hoping for a big win. I mostly play here with 0.25 bet per spin or sometimes with 0.5 bet per spin I have tried playing with a bigger bet but again no success. Overall Gladiator is another slot game with great graphic and animations coming from Playtech, inspired by the movie. Personally I like rocky slot more where I had bigger success. I recommend this game. Try it you may have more luck than me. For this game I give a solid 8 out of 10.

I did not know that there is more than one “Gladiator” slot. Until now the well known version of this slot from Playtech casinos was the only there for me. I say until now, because I had the opportunity to meet a different “Gladiator” slot in BetSoft casinos.

Unfortunately except the epic music that makes you feel like in the Roman Empire times, when it comes to other parts the slot does not excel. However it is also true that the music along with some great wins made me gamble here no less than 300 Euro. Fortunately I played it for fun because at the announced return of the slot (94%) I would have lost no less than 18 Euro. However, in my case the losses were much larger and somewhere about 100 Euro! Although just once I was even with the money (after about the first 70 spins I managed to have an extra 2 Euro) in 99 % of the cases I found myself at loss. Like I said the slot offers from time to time even big wins, but they are too rare.

Especially that here there are no Free spins, nor Bonus game to bring something back. There is only one extended Wild that can happen just as often (every 2 spins) or just as rare (once every 20-30 spins) when one of the gladiators is on the center reel and turns the entire reel into an extended Wild. There is another Wild here, still so rare, when the Queen of the empire is on the first position on any reel and throw rose petals over the other adjacent symbols turning them into Wilds.

The slot is almost weak and only its theme and music are better.
At 30 paylines although they pay both ways, the minimum bet of 1.5 Euro (5 cents/payline) is exorbitant. There are situations when before you recover the losses, they may very well easily exceed 100 Euro for 100 spins played. So unless you have thick pockets, you will want to stay away from this game.

The second fact which annoyed me very much (although the music is excellent) is the noise made by the stopping reels (bam, bam, bam, bam!). After the first 50-100 spins this continuous bang, bang, bang gets very tiring.

I’m a little confused here because I don’t really know what provider’s Gladiator version this section is dedicated to, but if it’s possible I’d like to share my thoughts about Playtech’s variant as I find this is the best from all of them.

If someone associates this game to the Oscar-winner film, he/she won’t be a disappointed because it’s clearly dedicated to the movie. The background music, the animations, the characters, the monologues are all from the movie and even we can see short scenes from it. Normally, I don’t adore slot in which live person acts as a symbol but here I don’t find it inapposite. Nielsen, Phoenix, Reed, Jacobi are all fits well to the game and big thanks for this to the slot designers (some other actors from the motion picture are also popping up here and there in the animations but the Gladiator himself somehow was left out. It’s very strange that lead character from whom the film and the game got their name after stayed away. I don’t know what could be behind the scenes, maybe copyright issue?!)

The game of course has great features with excellent animations. In the Gladiator Bonus – it shows up if helmet figures land on 2,3 and 4 reels – the players don’t have to do anything just watch the center reels getting covered by helmets and count how much money are won (by the way the lone head protector icon serves as a wild). When the free spins are activated (Coliseum Bonus), well, it’s more tricky. After 3 scatters appeared in the screen, first, we take a trip to the weapons room on the ground floor. It’s really cool, like a video game as if we were real gladiators too. Then some selections are required to determine the number of free games, multiplier, extra scatter and extra wild symbols. Depending on our choices we can get some plus picks or finish the game without any extra figures.
Though it hasn’t too high multiplier number (I haven’t got more than 3) but with the additional wild and scatter it can amaze players, especially if Commodus turns up on the third reel giving +3 spins. Oh, and if it all won’t be enough there’s always will be its fifty-fifty gamble feature.

Once when I was playing this game nothing happened for long time and I started to change my bets finally the Coliseum Bonus arrived with €2.50 total bet. I got just 8 free spins with 2 multiplier, scatter and Commodus as the extra wild. I can’t say I cried with joy because of it but the wild appeared so many times giving another and another 3 spins, and at one point I had 22 spins remained. In the end I could come away with a €260 winning.

I think it’s a well-designed, entertaining game with lots of potential. Recommended to those who loves the ancient Roman ages, decent graphics, cut scenes and the opportunity to win big.

I come from a country which 2000 years ago was conquered by the Romans and I still speak their language (or at least a similar language) and I should be proud of the Gladiator slot. But when I think of the real feeling the gladiators had when they entered the arena and did not know if there will come out in a whole piece, all the shivers come to me. The Gladiator slot is built on the theme of the movie having the same name that almost every one of us had the chance to watch a little more than 10 years ago on the big screen. Like the film, the slot revive the atmosphere brought by the terrible fights with gladiators in the ancient Roman Empire and its symbols represent the famous characters of the movie, except the General Maximus that here is missing.
The slot has 25 paylines and is the first time that I stop to play here. As playing mode the slot resembles the now classic „Great Blue“ and „X- Men“ having the same general course of the game and almost the same features. Not being a stingy slot, one can play with a 5-10 Euro bonus, some good hundreds spins, because both the Bonus game and the Free Spins round are triggered very often (about once every 30-50 spins you get a Bonus Game and about once every 80-100 spins a Free Spins round) . At the end of Bonus Game and at the beginning of Free Spins you will have the opportunity to watch several sequences from the movie. The Bonus game offers here 9 gladiator masks at random, each having a certain payout. The total amount paid by the 9 masks is somewhere between 6 and 10 Euro (at the corresponding minimum total bet of 25 cents). The Free spins also offers at the start the possibility for the player to choose some extra spins with an extra multiplier, an extra Wild and an extra Scatter. The symbols that triggers here the Bonus game, (the gladiator mask) play also the role of Wild when there are 1 or 2 on the screen. There is also the possibility of „Double Up“ after a win , but I do not really prefer to use it.
Overall, due to small losses and due to the two features present, the slot is as good as most other Playtech slots and if you get tired of the well known video slots here in Playtech, it is worth trying to play a few spins here.

The Gladiator is not only a slot I have very good memories about, but the movie is also an all-time-favorite of mine. Ever since its release in the year 2000, I must have seen the movie more than 6-7 times - an undisputed classic starring Russel Crowe and Joaquin Phoenix.

I love how they portray history in such heroic movies. Anyway time to analyze the slot's version now. With the success and revenue The Gladiator managed to bring in, it's really no surprise that the film studios gave in for a license agreement with Playtech.

I believe there are multiple versions of this game floating around online casinos. Some even are attached to a jackpot. However, I played this game lots of time at William Hill Casino where it had no jackpot back then. The Gladiator has 30 paylines and 5 reels, and a few very exciting features.

The symbols of this slot are made up from the characters of the movie. Joaquin Phoenix is the best paid symbol. How is this possible though, you might think? Well, Russel Crowe's images are not being used for this slot as a symbol. One could only wonder why - I guess he didn't give his permission.

The Gladiator offers two type of bonuses - the coliseum bonus and the gladiator bonus. Collect 3 or more scatters for the coliseum bonus. This is when you can have a few picks from a wall, where u can win additional free spins, multipliers, additional scatters and wilds. The most I've won here was 250x my bet size.

I once managed to win a couple dollars through a freeroll at William Hill, and then I decided to play this game and after a lucky session I had 750 euros sitting on my account. The other bonus is the gladiator bonus btw, this one gets triggered when u hit the mask symbol on reels 2, 3 and 4. This symbol also functions as a wild. During the bonus game you pick masks who each reveal a prize.

This is also the bonus game which is tied to the jackpot these days. Overall a fantastic game with footage from the movie as well. I absolutely loved it and can't wait if they make more slots like this.

Gladiator gets a 8.5/10 rating from me.

I have always been fascinated at medieval-themed movies like Ben-Hur, Spartacus, The Trojan Horse, and such. The Roman infantry and knights always looked so spectacular and gallant in their colourful outfits, and those battle scenes were simply breathtaking! Well, obviously, I am not alone! Just about everyone else loves watching them too. Movie successes have now gone one more step beyond, moving from cinemas right into the homes of every computer owner throughout the world, thanks to the incredible World Wide Web communicative possibilities. Evolving from pure cinematic entertainment to sophisticated role playing computer games, before finally transcending into gambling softwares, creating nostalgic entertainment like no one could have ever imagined before.

There are other versions of Gladiator by other software providers, but this review is purely on the Playtech version, my favourite software. It is a 25-paylines 5-reels slot game, utilising the usual symbols of 9, 10, J, Q, K and A for the lower end, and animated portrait clips for the higher end, the Emperor giving the highest payout at x5000 line bet. The scatter symbol is the Coliseum, paying x1 total bet for 2 appearing symbols anywhere on the reels, up to x100 total bet for 5-of-a-kind. The Helmet is the wild symbol, which can substitute any other symbol, except the scatter symbol, for any possible win, However, the wild does not carry any win value by itself, and appears only on reels 2, 3 and 4. Whenever the wild symbols appear anywhere on reels 2, 3 and 4 at the same time, a Gladiator Bonus game is triggered. In this feature game, 9 helmets are presented, appearing randomly, with each helmet carrying a cash prize - the bronze helmet for a x1 total bet win, the silver x3 and the gold helmet x5 total bet win. In the more popular Gladiator Jackpot version, getting 9 gold helmets in the Gladiator Bonus game awards the jackpot prize, which has frequently enough gone above the $2 million mark! In the normal Gladiator version here, only the mentioned cash prizes are awarded.

Whenever 3 or more of the scatter symbols, the Coliseum, appear anywhere on the reels, a very special Coliseum Bonus game is triggered. This is not the usual feature game of just free spins being awarded, it is an exciting combination award of free spins, extra pick (for more free spins), a win multiplier, an extra scatter and an extra wild, for more possible winning ways. If that isn't good enough, there is also a special 'Column Up' symbol hidden in one of the win multiplier squares. Get this and the two squares directly above it gets automatically revealed, awarding an extra scatter and an extra wild! This is a marvellous feature which provides the best chances for super big prizes. Let me elaborate a little bit more. Entering the feature game, you see 4 rows of horizontal squares. The 1st bottom row holds the free spins number, ranging from 4 to 10, with an extra pick award on certain squares. The 2nd row (above the 1st row) holds the win multipliers, ranging from x1 to x3, with an 'Extra Pick' and a special 'Column Up' symbol hidden somewhere in the squares. Get the 'Column Up' symbol and the two squares directly above it automatically gets revealed. But a pick-killer 'Collect' symbol is also hidden in this row of squares, as well as the next row above, so be aware. Getting this 'Collect' symbol ends the selection. The 3rd row holds the 'Extra Scatter' symbol and pays exactly as in the games Thai Paradise, Rome And Glory and Captain Treasure Pro. This feature offers yet more possibilities for big wins whereby the extra scatter symbols (minimum 3 scatters anywhere) would expand to cover the entire corresponding reels, paying up to x5000 the total bet! This win is added to all other wins but wins are not multiplied by the win multiplier. The top most 4th row holds the 'Extra Wild' symbol, substituting any other symbols for winning combinations.

Phew...did you get all that? With so many winning variants and possibilities, the Coliseum Bonus game is undoubtedly the best feature of Gladiator, even though the total number of free spins awarded at any time could be as low as 4 spins with a x2 win multiplier. But from experience, big wins are usually won in the Coliseum Bonus game. Getting less number of spins in the 1st row selection would usually get you the 'Extra Scatter' and 'Extra Wild' symbols, whilst getting 10 spins or more would usually end with a x2 win multiplier, which do not really pay out much.If you haven't played Gladiator yet, you are certainly missing out one of the best contemporary slot games ever!

I remember my first time visiting the cinema in The Netherlands. The movie's name has the same name of this video slot starring Russel Crowe as the hero who avenged the death of his family. I bet most of you have seen this movie Gladiator.
The game is unfortunately had nothing to do with this movie thou.

Microgaming's gladiator is quite different from the Playtech's gladiator but still fun to play. The first time I played this game I though it was not much any fun but that changed when I hit 3 scatters...100 free spins! By the way, 2 scatters pays your stake back. I find the free spins quite a lot but there's always a catch of course. no multipliers, no free spins re-trigger and but most of all I find the prizes are too low. Then again, when you hit the free spins bonus round, you can sit back and smoke a cigarette...or 2 and enjoy the free spins. I know I did. I listened to the calming free spins music on the background and watched my balance slowly going up, up and up again. If you want to hit big, very big, you'll need a high risk to do that. Just bet higher, I think 10 times of the minimum bet ( 50 cent ). It seems that this game pays 40 times your bet with the free spins. Every free spins bonus game gave me 2000 credits and sometimes a little bit more but that happens only once. It's also frustrating when you hit 3 scatters or more in the free spins bonus, because it is pity that did not re-trigger the free spins.

It is a shame but this bonus round is the only thing that keep me playing this game. Damn you 100 free spins bonus! Great job Microgaming you did it again. The (I think) emperor and the lady are a match, 2 or more of them on any payline will give you prize. A little bit romance in this game. Till today I still playing this game, now it is just for fun because I did tried the game with a higher stake but unfortunately I did not hit the free spins bonus. No harm for trying thou, except harming your wallet but that's the risk for gambling we all agree right?

Well I recommend this game for everyone who like video slots. A must!

Before I get started I need to know why Gladiator has the screenshot of Microgaming's version of Gladiator instead of the Playtech one when searching under letter G using the search filter? I just thought you should know AG.

Anyways, Gladiator as one belonging to the Playtech software is one mighty slot giving large payouts and equally putting the range close to super! I say this because most of you already know about the Coliseum bonus, am I right? It can really add a few pounds to your balance should you have extra scatters in play for the duration of your spins! It is the chocolate to my coffee and the ice to my beer when triggering it in bets of $0.50, $1 and $1.25!

For those of you who are new to this slot, Gladiator is a 25 paylines video slot with 2 features (excluding the gambling feature) waiting for players to trigger and has many potentials to manifest! The bonus, triggered when 3 of the coliseum scatters appear anywhere awards the Coliseum bonus containing rows of goods! Starting from the bottom while I work my way up, I select stone blocks for a number of free spins. I deducted that getting 4 and another 4 free spins for a total of 8 in that row (you can get more than one pick) usually gets me to the extra scatters on the second top row. The row after free spins is my chance to get a multiplier....this will make a difference especially if I land an extra scatter to use! The second highest row as I previously mentioned gets an extra scatter. What drives me nuts about it is sometimes I happen to get a letter/number symbol for the extra scatter but although being it as a small paying symbol they really know how to show their worth, in bunches! The last row being a rare sighting contains an extra wild. If I happen to get that far I get Caesar for the extra wild almost every time! I find it to be useless to have him for an extra wild because he rarely makes an appearance....he's also the symbol to get 3 extra free spins on the 3rd reel inside the feature!Folks, just be sure to avoid the collect sign as it makes you use everything you gained in previous rows. It become apparent after picking a multiplier (usually).

The most I've won during that feature is in the $200+ range. It's because of my chosen extra scatter with more free spins being awarded if Caesar comes out anywhere of the 3rd reel. That means 3 more free spins per his occurrance. When the minimum amount for that symbol (for example a 9 symbol) shows up regardless of any order it will start duplicating itself like an expanding wild to award a big win. The more extra scatters symbols I find the more it throws handfuls of cash. For once I would like to see five 10 symbols to cover each reel to give out a load of cash! Much better if it's 5 high paying character symbols covering everything :) !!!! That'll make me laugh just like an evil scientist would lol!

A much more than incredible slot that deserves an 11 out of 10!! Yup it's over the 10 to show you how much I like playing Gladiator!
