The Gladiator: Road to Rome slot is the official game for the Gladiator film (2000) directed by Ridley Scott. The movie proved to be a smash hit with critics and moviegoers alike. As a result, it won multiple awards and was the second highest-grossing film of 2000.
The movie centres on Maximus Decimus Meridius (Russell Crowe) a Roman general who is double crossed by Commodus who then seizes the Roman emperor’s throne. Reduced to slavery, Maximus becomes a Gladiator and fights his way to redemption in an attempt to avenge the murders of his family and the old emperor. Anyway, the design in this slot adaptation is true to the source material.
Set against a backdrop of an impressive Roman amphitheatre (the Colosseum), symbols appear on stone blocks. Joining the lower value A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 10 royals on the reels are a cast of characters from the movie. They include Tigris of Gaul (Sven-Ole Thorsen), Proximo (Oliver Reed), Lucilla (Connie Nielsen), Commodus (Joaquin Phoenix) and the Gladiator.
The most lucrative symbol is the Gladiator. Land 5 of these across a payline for a payout of 40 x your total stake. If you manage to land the Gladiator symbol fully stacked, it transforms into a wild and substitutes for all the standard symbols when it makes up part of a winning combination. Even though Russell Crowe plays the main character in the movie, he doesn’t appear in the slot game – probably due to image rights.
There are 2 different scatter symbols, both of which can trigger a bonus feature if you land enough of them on the same spin. Here’s a list of all symbols with payouts and information:
Gladiator: Road to Rome has been fully optimised using HTML5 technology. This means it can be played on all devices including desktops, tablets and mobiles. The 5×3 layout works well on handheld devices too.
With 2 bonus features, there are some very tasty extras on offer in Gladiator: Road to Rome. Trigger the free spins and your winning chances are boosted by a host of potential modifiers. What has really made this slot such a fan favourite though is the progressive jackpot.
Trigger the Colosseum Free Games feature by landing 3 or more weapon scatter symbols anywhere on the reels on the same spin. 3, 4 or 5 scatters will give you 5, 8 or 12 free spins. Not a huge allocation, we grant you. There are still plenty of winning opportunities available here thanks to the range of modifiers.
Before the free spins begin, pick from the collection of shields. You’ll get 3 picks which can deliver the following modifiers:
Land 3 free games scatters during the feature and you’ll receive another round of 5 free spins. The same modifiers from the original trigger are active during this new set of free spins. You can retrigger infinitely for unlimited free spins.
The ideal scenario, in my opinion, is to pick the Win Multiplier 2 times as it can result in a 6x multiplier being applied to each win. Add the Symbol Payout Boost which gives a symbol a 5x boost.
If that symbol is the wild, a screen full of wilds will result in a 5,000 x stake payout. Apply the 6x multiplier and 30,000 x stake payouts are available on each free spin.
The Gladiator Bonus feature is triggered by landing 3 helmet bonus symbols. You’ll then get to pick from 9 helmets which award bronze, silver and gold prizes.
Each helmet will give you a cash prize. Gold helmets are worth the most naturally. If you uncover 9 gold helmets, you’ll win the progressive jackpot. The current jackpot is £1,095,095.41 .
