  1. Additional free spins – Receive additional spins on top of the ones awarded based on the number of scatter symbols.
  2. Win Multiplier – a 3x multiplier will be applied to all money won during the feature.
  3. Symbol Payout Boost – A high-value symbol will be selected at random, and its payout will be boosted by 5x.
  4. Extra Wild Symbol – A random symbol will transform into a wild.
  5. Symbol Pays as Scatter – A random symbol will be treated as an expanded scatter symbol. One random symbol will expand and create wins even if the symbols aren’t adjacent to each other.
  6. Gladiator Wild Nudge – The stacked Gladiator symbol will nudge up or down to cover the reels and transform into a wild symbol.

After the pick-and-click portion of the feature is completed, the spins will begin.

The Gladiator Bonus is triggered by 3 or more helmet symbols landing anywhere on the reels. The screen will fill up with 9 helmets, and they will all turn over and reveal whether they are gold, silver, or bronze. Each helmet will contain a cash prize, and if 9 gold helmets are revealed, you will win the progressive jackpot. 

Software and Mobile Experience

Between all the modifiers, progressive jackpot meters, and animations, there is a lot going on in Gladiator: Road to Rome. However, Playtech did a masterful job in developing this game so that it looks and plays just as nicely on smaller mobile screens as it does on a larger desktop screen. This allows NZ punters to try and win the progressive jackpot even while standing on line at the supermarket

This game came to the online casino with a lot of hype, and it has certainly lived up to its lofty expectations. It combines all the excellent features of the popular Gladiator slot game and adds in a progressive jackpot, which has paid out life-changing money to some lucky punters.
