Gladiators Gold is a classic slot machine by Microgaming that came out during a time when these Roman warriors were all the rage thanks to Russell Crowe’s portrayal of Maximus in Ridley Scott’s Gladiator. The game features three reels, a single bet line and a symbol set that includes bars, double bars, triple bars, gold sevens and red sevens.
Gladiators Gold offers the option of betting one, two or three coins per spin, and the coin choice is as low as 25 cents and as high as five dollars. Therefore, the minimum bet is $0.25, and the maximum bet is $15. The jackpot includes a bonus on three-coin bets, so it’s definitely beneficial to stake at least three, which requires a minimum bet of $0.75. To play, set the stake and then click Spin, or use the Bet Max button, which will set the stake to $15 and then spin automatically.
Gladiators Gold has two special features on the reels. The first is Any Bar, which pays out five coins for any combination of the bar symbols: single, double and triple. The second is Any 7, which pays out 75 coins for any combination of gold and red sevens. The 75-coin payout is exactly half of what you’d earn if you managed to hit three gold sevens across. The UI also offers an expert mode, which allows spins to happen in rapid succession, and it includes a tool to automate spins.
Graphics and Audio
Microgaming has used a cartoonish approach for its take on the gladiator theme. The color palette is limited but works well. The sound effects are authentic, interesting and varied, and there’s a mute option for music and/or sound effects if you prefer not to hear anything at all.
Hitting the jackpot requires getting three red sevens across the bet line. The jackpot pays out 1,000 coins on a one-coin bet, 2,000 coins on a two-coin bet and 4,000 coins on a three-coin bet. The maximum jackpot is $20K, the low jackpot is $250 and the jackpot on our recommended minimum bet of 75 cents is $1,000.
If you’re a fan of the three reel pub-style slots, then there’s a lot to like about Gladiators Gold. It doesn’t do anything particularly innovative, but it implements that classic formula we love so much flawlessly. It’s also quite rewarding, and the opportunity to win a grand on $0.75 is tough to pass up.
