Free Gladiators go Wild slot
Please be patient, some games take longer to load than others!
Gladiators go Wild slot by iSoftBet has a spectacular appearance that leads you to believe it's more complicated than the very straightforward mechanics it actually has. The theme isn't in doubt though with those Roman gladiatorial types featuring everywhere on the plain red reels surrounded by colosseum pillars and of course the epic movie-type music as our soundtrack. If you're expecting a movie-themed version like Betsoft's Gladiator or Playtech's version of the later Gladiator film, then you'll be disappointed as we've got a meeting of Rome and Netent's Starburst here! Can we avoid having our bankroll sliced up by this odd combination though?
You get 6 reels of 3 rows each on Gladiators go Wild slot and only 10 paying lines, although they do pay both ways, i.e. right-to-left as well. The 6-of-a-kind pays aren't bad considering the stacked symbols we get and are 40x Purple Gladiator, 30x Green, 20x Red and 15x Blue with five card values paying either 5x or 3x for a full line of six. There aren't any scatters but we can earn a special Wild feature.
Should a full stack of any of the four Gladiators appear on the grid it will stick and become Wild. You then get to spin again with the Wild reel held, which you pay for as a standard credit unlike Starburst. You then get credited any winnings until the feature ends when the final spin has occurred. So if you land another full stack of Gladiators, you get 2 Wild reels in place before you spin again and so-on. When no more Wild reels occur, you get the wins collected on the reels to that point. And that's your feature.
Gladiators go Wild slot is fine if you like games such as Starburst or Starblast and it's got essentially the same mechanic as both of those but is far more colourful. You have limited potential as the maximum screen is 400x bet although you could well collect a fair bit more in the preceding spins leading up to it and it may actually pay 800x as the rules state the slot pays the highest win on each line from both directions. The RTP is a fair 96% and you won't get bored too quickly with the music and animations which are good. For a bit of low tech slotting fun, I'd do battle with these Gladiators again...
