The Playtech-developed Gladiator slot progressive jackpot is set to burst with a current value worth £1,191,794.
The progressive jackpot, the same as $1,845,802 and €1,626,670, was last triggered 22 weeks and 3 days ago on 20th September, 2014. Excitement is now building with slots players expecting the jackpot to be won any day now due to its average payout time confirmed as only 11 weeks and 6 days between wins. That means the current jackpot has now gone twice as long as its average payout time without being triggered so far.
Gladiator is a 5 reel, 25 payline slot from prestigious slots developer Playtech and is based on the 2000 smash box office hit directed by Ridley Scott and starring Russell Crowe about a Roman general forced into slavery who becomes a gladiator to seek vengeance for the murder of his wife and son.
The progressive jackpot is triggered when players hit three Wilds, represented by Gladiator helmets, across reels 2, 3, and 4. Players will then be asked to select nine helmets with each helmet revealing a prize win with the payout depending on whether the helmet is gold, silver, or bronze. If players reveal nine gold helmets the jackpot is triggered.
It is one of a number of brand slots from Playtech including the action-packed Captain America slot and the bonus-filled Fantastic Four slot. It also holds one of the largest progressive jackpots in the Playtech slots portfolio.
The largest win ever recorded on the Gladiator slot came when an anonymous player triggered it at Winner Casino back on 14th October, 2013. The player won a staggering £2,015,367, one of the largest payouts on a Playtech slot.
