Gameplay

Wild Gladiators’ graphics are not terribly impressive but they sufficiently convey they idea of a day out at the circus during the time when ancient Rome ruled the Western world. The game has a standard sized grid that has been set in the sand in the middle of the arena of the amphitheatre. The slot has a 6th reel that doesn’t contain symbols but multipliers from x1 up to x9. The 6th reel spins along with every spin and whenever you hit a win, it will be multiplied by the factor indicated on the 6th reel. The most valuable symbol is the image or the emperor who can deliver you 16 times your bet when you hit 5 of them on a pay line in one spin.

Special Features

Wild Gladiators has a few appealing features. The Multiplier Reel can crank up your wins and Wild symbols can expand for additional win potential.

Multiplier Reel

The multiplier reel is the 6th reel as mentioned above that awards a multiplier to every winning spin. It also contains a Bonus symbol. When the reel lands on this icon, the Bonus feature will be added to your game.

Wild Symbols

The image of the gladiator functions as the Wild symbol. If it lands on the middle positions of any reel it will expand to cover the entire reel as an Expanding Wild. The Wild symbol can substitute other symbols to lend a helping hand towards a winning combination.

Free Spins

You can win more free rounds by playing additional Scatter symbols. The 6th reel remains active and continues to award multipliers on every win and Wild symbols keep expanding, as long as they land in the middle of the reel, for big win potential without the need to place a wager.

Super Wild Bonus

Wild Gladiators’ Bonus feature is activated when the 6th reel stops on the Bonus symbol and 5 Wild symbols are randomly added to the reels which can expand if they appear in the middle position of each reel. If all 5 Wild symbols appear in the middle of the reels and expand, you can cash in a x10 multiplier to your win.
