Rules of the game Gladiator Jackpot

The game on the Gladiator Jackpot slot machine is available in a demo version. When starting the game machine, in the player’s account there are a certain amount of credits (depending on the value of the coin 750 or 1999.99).

Initially, the player must determine the value of the game coins. In the control panel on the left there is a window with the inscription “1 =”. Clicking on this button opens a menu that shows the available coin values: 0.01, 0.05, 0.1, 0.25, 0.5, 1, 2 and 5. The bet per line and the total bet depend on this choice. In the Bet Per Line window, the player can determine the bet per line in a range of 1 to 10 coins. The amount of the prize for a winning combination depends on the amount of the bet per line.

In the Lines window you can determine the number of active pay lines in the game. In total 25 pay lines are available on the Gladiator Jackpot game machine. If the player wishes, he can vary this number. The more active pay lines there are, the greater the chances of landing winning combinations at the end of the rotation. Pressing the Bet Max button automatically assigns the maximum bet per line and the maximum number of active pay lines and starts a rotation of the reels.

The total bet on the Total Bet spin is obtained by multiplying the Bet Per Line and Lines parameters. In fact this is the cost of a start-up on the reels. If there are not enough demo credits in the player’s account to pay for the rotation, the game will report this and offer to lower the stake.

The prize is received for combinations of several of the same symbols. Symbols are counted from left to right. The second condition is that they have to be on the adjacent reels. An exception to this rule is the symbol Scatter represented with the image of the Colosseum. He which gives prizes when it appears anywhere on the game screen.

The prize for a combination of ordinary symbols is calculated according to the following formula: The bet per line multiplied by the combination’s prize multiplier. For the symbol Scatter there is another formula: The multiplier of the combination multiplied by the total bet. If there are multiple winning combinations on an active payline, only pay for the most profitable one. The prize for the combination of symbols Scatter is in addition to the prize for the winning combination of ordinary symbols.

Clicking the Spin button starts the rotation of the reels. After the rotation is over, the winnings are calculated. This sum can be wagered on the risk game or credited to the account and the spinning of the reels continued with the Spin button.

The second way to start the reel rotation is to click the Auto Start button and start the automatic reel rotation. By default 10 automatic rotations are determined, but using the “-” and “+” buttons the player is free to set a greater or lesser number of rotations. The risk game is not available when this function is active.

Information on the operation of the Gladiator Jackpot slot machine can be found in the Help menu and the pay table is opened by pressing the Info button. In the Win window the winnings for the last spin are shown.

Symbols and prizes in the Gladiator Jackpot slot

In the Gladiator Jackpot casino slot there are two special symbols: Wild and Scatter. All other symbols give the player coin / credit prizes. If the symbol Wild (the image in the form of the gladiator’s helmet) appears on the same active line as the matching symbols, it replaces the missing symbol to form a winning combination. This symbol only appears on the second, third and fourth reels, so you cannot create your own combinations.

The gladiator helmet also plays the role of a bonus symbol. When three of these images appear anywhere on the second, third, and fourth reels, the player receives access to the Gladiator Jackpot Bonus round.

The symbol Scatter represents the gladiator arena, the Colosseum. This appears on all reels and gives prizes and access to the Colosseum Bonus round. The prize multipliers for the Scatter symbol combinations are:

  • 2 Colosseum symbols pay the total stake.
  • 3 Colosseum symbols pay 4 times the total bet.
  • 4 Colosseum symbols pay 20 times the total bet.
  • 5 Colosseum symbols give 100 times the total bet.

Ordinary symbols are visually divided into symbols from the denominations of the playing cards and the portraits of the main characters from the movie Gladiator. The most profitable of these symbols is the portrait of the emperor and empress. For two, three, four and five images of the empress, the player receives 7, 50, 250 and 1,000 multipliers of the bet per line. For the same number of images of the emperor, the multipliers are 8, 75, 500, and 5,000. The other symbols form their combinations when at least three matching symbols appear on a pay line. The payout multipliers for three, four or five symbols are:

  • The advisor gives x25, x75, and x350.
  • The Helmeted Warrior and the Man in the Turban give x20, x60 and x250.
  • The K and A give x15, x50, and x200.
  • The Q and J give x10, x40, and x120.
  • The 9 and 10 give x8, x20 x75.

Double or nothing game

Almost any winnings on the Gladiator Jackpot virtual slot machine can be wagered on the risk game. The only exceptions are prizes received when the Auto Start feature is active and prizes during the Gladiator Jackpot Bonus round. Clicking the Gamble button will open a new window with a playing card in the center.

The player’s task is to guess the color of the card to double the prize for the winning combination. If the choice is incorrect the prize is void and the user returns to the main game. If the player guesses, they have two options: collect the prize and return to the main game, or continue the risk game.

The color of the card can be guessed until the prize sum reaches 1,000 credits. This is the limit set by the game manufacturer, company Playtech. The player is free to collect the prize sum at any time before selecting the color of the card by clicking on the Collect button.

Bonus Game and Jackpot

On the Gladiator Jackpot game machine there are two types of bonus rounds: Gladiator Jackpot and Colosseum Bonus. To activate each of them you need at least three symbols of the same type corresponding to this bonus round.

When three Wild symbols appear on the second, third and fourth reels they trigger the Gladiator Jackpot Bonus round. In the real version of the gaming machine the race for the Jackpot begins, in the demo version additional prizes are given that depend directly on the bet per line. A new window opens, in which gladiator helmets of bronze, silver and gold appear successively. Each of them give a prize in credits, selected at random. If all nine helmets are gold, the player receives the Jackpot instead of the bonus prize.

When three, four or five symbols Scatter appear anywhere on the game screen they execute the Colosseum Bonus round. After receiving the award, the player moves to the next screen, which is divided into four levels. At each level, a certain bonus can be selected for the subsequent free spins round.

The bottom row of symbols determines the number of free spins the player will get. The possible options are: 4, 5, 7, 10 and 12 free spins. The second row of symbols determines the multiplier for the prizes to be won in the free spins round. The available multipliers are x1, x2 and x3. The third row of symbols determines the additional Scatter symbol. It can be any of the ordinary symbols, except the portraits of the emperor and empress. The fourth row determines which of the portrait symbols will be an additional Wild symbol during the free spins. To move between the rows of symbols use the special buttons. Their functions are:

  • Make the next choice from the top row.
  • Make an additional choice in this row.
  • Fully unlock the selected reel.
  • Finish the choice of symbols and start the free spins.

If another combination of three, four or five Scatter symbols is hit during the free spins series, the Colosseum Bonus round will not be eligible for re-entry. However, if the emperor symbol appears on the third reel, the player will receive 3 additional free spins.

If during the Colosseum Bonus round Gladiator Jackpot Bonus is activated, the prizes received by the helmets are not multiplied. The helmets are simply added to the prizes for the last spin and credited to the player’s account.
