What is this mobile slot about?

Based on the original 2000 Ridley Scott film, Gladiator Jackpot mobile slot looks as beautiful as you’d expect from a mobile slot with original blockbuster graphics.

There are two versions of this Gladiator slot online: the one with and the one without the progressive jackpot prize. On mobile we thank-fully get the one with the progressive jackpot, as if you can play on the exact same machine, but one gives you a chance to win a few millions and one doesn’t… which would you choose?

The Gladiator movie theme

Commodus, Lucilla, Gracchus & Juba… these are a few of my favourite Roman things!

You are either a fan of the movie or your not. Maximus is in the background looming over the slot, but the image of Russell Crowe is missing, presumably lost in the copyright legal papers.

Still, you don’t miss him as much as you’d think as the whole movie has become iconic enough that this mobile slot game moves a few levels up in look and feel, if not in sounds, which are generic and nothing like the movie itself.

The feel of the Gladiator Jackpot slot machine

As with so many Playtech mobile slots, where your bank roll will end up is dependent on when and if you hit the games bonus features, which when hit, can bring some decent returns. These however, are a long time coming, with a good 150 spins without any fast action on the reels, just the occasional 5 of a kind wins if you are lucky.

Because what you are waiting for is the free spin game. And you’ll have to fight harder than a man fighting for his life in the Colosseum to finally get them. You’ll have to read our bonus features below for the full explanation but know this… if you get extra scatters (which we prefer) to the extra wilds, we’ve won 200x our bet on this feature.

If you like your mobile slots a little faster and looser, we suggest you go for a slot like Starburst or Foxin’ Wins. Even Playtech’s The Incredible Hulk has more action in the base game. But if you are looking for a progressive jackpot slot for mobile and that hope that once the free spins come, glorious wins that echo in eternity awaits, then Gladiator Jackpot slot on mobile is a great place to start.

In-game bonus features

Wild: "Maximus Decimus Meridius, commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions and loyal servant to the TRUE emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife..." is the wild symbol on the reels and substitutes for all symbols except scatters.

Instant Win: Three wild symbols anywhere on the 5 reels shows a small movie clip and you'll get instant wins that are anywhere between 2x to 5x your bet. Meh.

Scatters and Free spins: A special free spin bonus feature, once you get three scatters anywhere on the slots reels you'll be taken to a second pick me screen where you'll get to pick the number of free spins and multipliers.

Then, if you are really really really lucky you'll also get to pick an extra symbol to become a 'expanded' scatter and then if you are lady luck herself, you may even get an extra symbol as a wild. Usually only one or the other, sometimes neither. If neither, then don't expect the free spin round to bring you much more.

But if you get the scatters especially, you can make a real difference to your budget. Get three or more of the extra scatters on the screen and they will expand to cover the whole 3 or 4 reels (5 reels can happen, but we haven't seen it). The images in our gallery explain this better than we can.

Extra wilds is extra wilds, and always welcomed.

You can't re-trigger these , but if Commodus (Caesar) shows up on reel 3 you'll get 3 more free spins.


Closing thoughts

If you are happy to be a little patient, and you like video slots that have style and some potential big wins, Gladiator Jackpot mobile slot offers decent play time.

This mobile slot machine is certainly one for the more experienced slot player who can appreciate a slot that may appear a little slow at first but is followed by some high adrenaline action.
