Game Of Gladiators Slot Review – Play’n Go
Play’n Go releases are like a rollercoaster currently, they have released some great titles and some complete fails. For fails, I recently reviewed ‘Inferno Star,’ which is just their past canceled slot reskinned to avoid trouble with NetEnt. Then we have ‘Perfect Gems,’ which is an excellent release by the provider with some familiar successful mechanics and some of their twists on some minor details. But will the roller coaster be going up or down for their next release? Well, their next slot is titled ‘Game Of The Gladiators‘ and is set to release June 6th.
Like stated in the slot title this slot is based around gladiators, particularly in Roman times when these battles were entertainment and called for the best in gladiators. So we have gone from simple suns to historical themes. The graphics are good quality, and the slot runs smoothly. There is no background artwork due to the slot taking up the whole window. So does give the slot a basic appearance.
The setup is the classic five reels by three rows, which includes 20 set Pay Lines. Game Of The Gladiators is high variance, due to the max win capped at 5,000x and set RTP of 96.42%. You can bet from £0.20 – £100.

Game Of Gladiators Slot Review Features
This slot is jam-packed with features so let’s start with the 5 elements in the base game. In the base game, you will benefit from ‘Primus Mystery,’ 5 different randomly triggered features.
- Spear Attack = 3-6 Spears are thrown at the reel set and transform some to wilds.
- Sword Attack = First reel is duplicated 2-4 times.
- Net Attack = A gladiator sticks and a respin is awarded.
- Fame = A gladiator, is paid out according to the battle paytable.
- Enraged = Two full reel mega wilds are added.
Central to this slot is the ‘Enter The Arena Battle‘ feature, this is activated when you land 3 scatter symbols but on reels 1,3 and 5. You will then proceed to pick one of two champions displayed. These are named ‘Spartacus‘ And ‘Amazonia.’ Whichever you pick, their symbol will replace the scatter symbol for this feature. Spartacus has a unique feature of a retrigger, and Amazonia offers 20x-100x bet multiplier. These rewards are given if you win the battle.
During this free spins, premium symbol wins will be awarded and added to the battle meter located above the reels. This reel collected for the ‘Battle Prize,’ When a scatter symbol lands, there will be an attack on some gladiator symbols and will result in them being destroyed. However, if 2 scatters land during the same free spin 2 groups are attacked with a 2x multiplier active for the Battle Prize. Then if 3 scatters land during the same free spin three groups attacked and x3 multiplier. This feature will end when 12 opponents are in battle.
Overall, this slot was okay to test. The slot didn’t blow me away but plays well. You benefit from 5 different features in the base game, which keeps things exciting and keeps your balance topped up. The bonus feature is very confusing at first, but it becomes straightforward once triggered a couple of times. The volatility is medium with a max win of 5,000x.
