Take your seat in the Roman amphitheatre on the slot from iSoftbet as gladiators go wild in an intense reel battle for honour, glory and riches. With an extended 6-reel set and sticky wilds, you could hit a full screen of wild gladiators for wins in excess of 1,600 times your bet.
Gladiators Go Wild is a video slot with six reels, three rows and 10 fixed pay lines. Wins are awarded both ways for three to six matching symbols on a line from left to right and from right to left. Your entrance to the reel battle on desktop, mobile and tablet starts at 0.10 credits and peaks at 10 credits per spin. The game as medium volatility and an average return to player (RTP) of exactly 96.00%.
A backdrop in flames emphasizes the intensity of the battle going down on the reels. Roman columns hold the extra wide game window while the fearless gladiators dominate the reels. They will go up in flames when they land fully stacked to extend to a full height gladiator wielding his weapon of choice and turning into a sticky wild for the following spin. A heroic battle soundtrack minutely synchronized to the action on the reels rounds off a well-designed slot.
Open the game to find the card royals from 10 through to A at the low end of the pay table, awarding wins 6x to 10x your bet for a single six of a kind. They are followed by four gladiators with their weapons – the trident carrying Retiarius, the sword and shield carrying Secutor and Murmillo as well as the double-weapon wearing Dimachaerus. Pays for a six of a kind range from 15x to 40x your stake. There are no regular wild symbols or scatters on this slot.
The game is fast-paced with no interruptions from a bonus game or free spins round. Even the only feature will happen on a paid spin. It is triggered when you land any of the four gladiator symbols fully stacked on a reel. The single symbols will combine to a full height gladiator and turn into a sticky wild symbol for the following paid spin. Obviously, any potential wins on the triggering spin are paid first, however, the created wild is not active on the initial spin. The procedure will be repeated if you land another fully stack of gladiator symbols on the next spin and will continue until all six reels are eventually full-height wilds. Wins are paid on every spin.
Gladiator-themed slots are usually brimming with bonus features and reel modifiers to increase the intensity of the gameplay. Gladiators Go Wild has none of them, yet still portraits very well the intensity of the battles in the famed amphitheatres. There is little time to pause for a free spins round as all spins are paid, even when you start accumulating the sticky wilds. Surprisingly, it all works well together and we didn’t overly miss the lack of bonus features. With six reels it feels a little like Starburst on steroids.
