The Gladiator slot machine by Playtech is a licensed casino game with five reels, based on the 2000 film starring Russell Crowe and directed by Ridley Scott. This game is available in brick-and-mortar casinos as well as online, and both versions of the game are essentially identical.


The default coin size is $1, but coins can be as small as $0.01 and as large as $5. Note that not all casinos allow the $2 and $5 denominations. By default, 10 coins are played per line, but players can use the Bet Per Line button to lessen that amount to as low as one. There are 25 paylines overall, and the Lines button allows the player to activate fewer lines. Playing at a penny, the minimum bet to activate all lines and play the max coins per line is $2.50. At one dollar, it would be $250.

Special Features

The coliseum is a scatter symbol that can pay out up to 100 times the line stake and triggers an on-the-reels bonus game. There are also paired symbols that can pay out as much as X250 when they create a five-across series. The gladiator mask triggers a second-screen bonus game when it appears on the second, third and fourth reels. During the bonus game, the machine randomly selects nine helmets from a pool of bronze, silver and gold helmets. The player wins the prize amount associated with each helmet, and if the game draws nine gold helmets, he or she wins the progressive pot instead.

Graphics & Audio

Gladiator uses images, music and sound effects right out of the movie, and the overall package was very cutting edge when it was first released. Of course, the game is nearly a decade old now, and that does show to some degree. Nevertheless, the game’s original polish still shines through most of the time.


The progressive jackpot has paid out in excess of $3 million, and even though the game is not as popular as it once was, the pot still manages to hover beyond a million most of the time. The standard line jackpot is 5,000 times the line stake, which would be $1.25M when playing at $250 a line.


Gladiator remains a great slot machine and one the best online video slots everywhere. The game is fast, polished and a lot of fun to play, and the player has a number of ways to hit a life-changing jackpot.
