Gladiator is one of the more successful online slot machine games developed by Playtech.
This is a slot which can be played either as a progressive jackpot or a non-progressive jackpot slot, with the two variants commonly available side-by-side in casino sites.
Gladiator is, of course, based on the hit 2000 film of the same name, and remains a firm favourite among Playtech slot lovers many years after its release.
The first thing that players will notice when they sit down and start spinning the reels of the Gladiator slot machine is that the better-paying symbols are represented by characters from the film.
These include Jubba, Proximo, Senator Gracchus, Lucila, and of course, the Roman Emperor, Commodus.
The second thing that players will note about this slot is that there is an absence.
Russell Crowe’s Maximus is not represented on the reels due to licensing issues, but that doesn’t detract from the game whatsoever.
He is represented in some form, courtesy of Maximus’ helmet, which also doubles as the game’s wild and is one of two bonus triggering symbols.
Playtech have allowed players total control over how their wagers are constructed in this slot.
They can opt to select coin denominations which range from 1p to £1, although admittedly in some casinos, coin values can rise as high as £5.
They can also choose to bet up to 10 of those coins per payline.
All 25 paylines are adjustable, which gives this slot a minimum stake of just 1p per line per spin.
