Wild Gladiators is one of many gladiator and Rome-themed historical slots you can find at casinos across the net. This exciting game has been produced by Pragmatic Play and offers top prizes while asking for relatively little in return. It debuted in the online casino world back in March 2019. A non-progressive game with decent graphics, Wild Gladiators can dish out top treats via a sixth reel. That helps the slot stand out from many of its rivals, which is essential in an over-crowded slot genre such as this.
Pragmatic Play’s Wild Gladiators features the familiar 5-reel, 25-line payline structure, upon which sit three rows of symbols. A stake costs anything from 25p up to £125 a spin, with paylines fixed into place. On the upside, the game is something of a low to medium variance release and has a return to player (RTP) rate of 96.17%, just above the industry standard. With a bit of fortune, players can expect to win up to 4,000x a stake on this gladiator-themed game.
Wild symbols appear as Roman centurions, and these can replace all save for scatters. They are also top paying icons. There are Super Wild Symbols in the slot, too, but we will come to those in just a moment. Scatter symbols appear as the Roman Colosseum. Land these icons on the first, third and fifth reels to trigger Wild Gladiators’ free spin round.
Players won’t be able to help but notice that a sixth reel appears in the game. It is known as the Win Multiplier Reel. Any win which occurs in the game could be subject to a multiplier which ranges from 1x up to 10x from this reel. However, Super Wild Symbols can also appear on this sixth reel, and they trigger a separate bonus, as mentioned.
If a Super Wild Symbols land on the sixth reel, it will spread about wilds across the reels. If one of these lands on the central position on each reel, it can expand to cover the entire reel. If all five reels have expanding wilds on them, and you land the 10x multiplier from the Win Multiplier (sixth) reel, you’re looking at prizes worth 4,000x a bet being paid out.
As for the free spin bonus, this begins with a total of 10 spins handed out to players. The sixth, Win Multiplier reel is still in play during this round, as will any Super Wild Symbols you manage to land. Players can also pocket additional free spins if they land further scatters on the three required reels while the bonus is in play.
Wild Gladiators has plenty to offer players. Pragmatic Play has come up with a tidy low to medium variance release which can pay out colossal wins in exchange for rather moderate bets. The game may not have the prizes of Playtech’s progressive Gladiator slot or the funkiness of NetEnt’s Victorious slot, but there is more than enough going on here to impress.
