When I was just a little boy, my father would take me to see movies, lots of movies. Of Cowboys, Red Indians, Romans, and including modern war movies too, like The Longest Day. Aah, not really, I was already grown up by that time, so I saw that one on my own, or was that with a girlfriend? Gees, I can't remember, but never mind. Roman action movies have always been my favourite in those days, movies like The Trojan Horse, Cleopatra, Hercules and Ben Hur. Nowadays, I like to watch 'Bend Her' movies at times, but that's a totally different category! Hahaha.
So it isn't surprising at all that this Gladiator soon became one of my favourite slot games too. Movie video clips keep the play exciting, the free spins games were thrilling, and the Jackpot Bonus games were exhilarating and killing! At times, I could feel my heart beating like hell, trying to get out of my body, but I kept everything steady, hehehe. That was that time when I got a Jackpot Bonus game, and the Golden Helmets starting appearing one by one by one! In my head, I was going all crazy like "oooh my god!...2 million jackpot!...come on!...come on!...all Golden Helmets...PUH-leeease!...five up already..." Ooh boy, my butts couldn't sit still when the 7th Golden Helmet appeared! Just two more to go...to 2 million jackpot! Then the 8th appeared...SILVER! Damn! WTF must a silver helmet spoil all my happiness? Why oh why?! God didn't answer. There was only silence, hahaha. Then the last 9th helmet came, another gold one. Blardy hell, I was saying to myself, missed by one blardy silver helmet, a blardy 2-million-dollar silver helmet!
That day could have been my best day ever, but it turned out to be my worst day! My best day if I had won that huge jackpot that could have changed my whole life forever. My worst day because I missed getting it for another two more times within that same blardy day!!! One missed by yet another silver helmet. The other one missed by three silver helmets. Damn! Why oh why?! How can anyone be so unlucky, not once but three times in a single day?! No answer of course, just silence! Hehehe.
Well, that Jackpot Bonus game is the one thing to keep looking out for, but the free spins games were no less exciting. I managed to pick out one item each from the pyramid of choices, getting free spins, a win multiplier, a special scatter and an extra Wild at the very top of the pyramid. The final payout was good, but not huge, because the scatter symbol wasn't the Queen or the Emperor. That would give a real whopper of a win if you can get 4 or 5 of them! So far, I have reached this level of free spins game not more than 10 times. I have won all 10s and all Js, whilst the others were never full. I had the Emperor and the Queen too, but none of them came in threes to activate the symbol scattering game. That was also a big disappointment for me, because both these two symbols could pay really big in the scattering game. Imagine getting 5 scatters of the Emperor, then see how it would expand and cover all the 5 reels! Oooh-boy! I hope one day I can get to see this too, but never forgetting all the Golden Helmets of course! Hahaha.
