Gladiator of Rome

There are plenty of slot games based on the Roman Empire, and we have played quite a few over the years. The theme makes for interesting gameplay so we thought we would check out the latest addition to the genre and it has been developed by 1X2 Gaming.

As you can probably guess this is a game based on the combat within the Coliseum and it is action-packed and full of features. The gameplay is exciting and fun, and we can really see this being a popular slot for a lot of players. We decided to have a few spins, and all the key information is below.

Our Verdict:

The game offers five reels and the standard twenty-five payline setup. We found the betting options a bit different with minimum bets of 5p that rise to a maximum of a slightly unconventional £270. The jackpot in the base game is a massive 1000X, so the potential is there to win big. There is even a demo mode that is free to play as well as a substantial RTP of over 97%. The design of the game is fantastic, and the music contributes to the overall atmosphere of the game. This is worth a few spins if you are a fan of the Gladiator theme.

Wild Symbol:

The wild symbol on Gladiator of Rome is the angry looking Gladiator himself. He substitutes for most other symbols and helps you pick up additional wins by completing winning lines. The two gladiators fighting are the scatter symbol, and it has the word "BONUS" displayed across it to make it easy to recognize. The wild symbol is the one to watch out for, though, as we found that it increased our wins quite frequently. The wild does not activate the bonus round like other games so the "BONUS" symbol we just mentioned is the one that activates the extra feature and we have details of it below.

Free Spins:

We don't know any slot players that don't enjoy a free spins bonus round as they help increase the length of the game and top up your balance. All you have to do is land the scatters on reels two, three or four and if you manage this, it will activate the free spins round. There are 30 free spins up for grabs which are pretty cool as a minimal effort is required to win them. There is also some additional multipliers, and for the first 10 free spins it is 1X, for the next 10 it is 2X, and for the final 10, it is 3X.


The game does have an auto-play option for players that want to minimise clicking. Simply place your deposit and then you can select how many games you want the software to play for you and how much you want to bet. This is a useful feature, but it can deplete your balance rapidly so take care when using it. Overall, it is probably better suited to the most experienced players out there.
