Overview Gladiator Arena Slot
Gladiator Arena is a high variance slot that offers a return to player under 95% which is not too far from the average in terms of competitors slots. The game plays out over 5-reels, 3-rows and 20 fixed active pay lines. The symbol pay outs are generous if you land five of the same in one row with the highest payer being 25x and the remainder also coming in with good pay outs. You can expect to come across expanding wild symbols and expanding picture symbols in the higher paying category. There is a free spins bonus for a chance take on the potential big pay outs, plus a pick-me bonus feature.
Gladiator Arena comes from the developers at Booming Games and will take you on an adventure where you can channel your inner gladius against the nasty gladiators and fierce lions. Whilst the theme is nothing new, Booming Games have a devoted following that will always take an interest in a new release. As a company Booming Games have plenty of experience winning the “rising stars” award in 2019 at the International Gaming Awards, so what can you expect from this slot.
The slot is set in familiar surroundings inside the Roman Colosseum where you will face gladiators and animals which are extremely well presented and paired up with big wins with these wins being announced with a large drop of gold coins. There is no doubt that the developers have created a good visual experience for players which hasn’t had to be announced with a fanfare as it doesn’t need it. Players that are familiar with slots from Booming Games will find the slot easy to navigate with an intuitive lay out.
How to Bet and Play
To begin your adventure, you need to press the green round button which is in the bottom right corner of the game screen. Your reels then begin to spin with your bet being deducted from your active balance. Prior to taking your first spin it is advisable to check and see what the default bet is at the casino and make sure that it is an amount that you are comfortable playing with. Should you need to change the bet amount you need to press the button that houses the coin stack which can be found in the top right of the game screen.
There is a wide bet range on offer in Gladiator Arena the slot with a minimum bet of 20p per spin up to a maximum £100 per spin, which is a bet range that will suit a lot of players. It is worth remembering that regardless of the amount you choose to bet your reels will always spin over all 20 fixed pay lines.
You can access additional game play information by pressing the +button which you can find to the left of your spin button. By doing this you can open a drawer which contains the settings for the sound, turbo and auto play features, and you can also use the thunder button which will make your reels spin even faster. There is also an auto play which allows you to play hands free and the reels then spin automatically.
Wins are created when you land three of the same symbols starting from left to right. The symbols only need to land on any one of your 20 pay lines, but there is the chance that you will create multiple wins that result from the same spin.
When it comes to the symbols the highest paying symbols are the lion and the gladiator and these will cover the reels in a 3x5 format, and they can also expand to cover the entire reel. There is a different feature with regards to the wild as this cannot only expand on the reels but can also turn sticky. The most lucrative symbol is the gladiator in the gold armour and will pay x25 when you land five on the same pay line. The gladiator complete with trident pays 20x and the old-guard soldier paying x15. The lion concludes the high paying symbols and will provide a win of 10x when you land five on the same pay line.
Gladiator Arena is complete with a free spin bonus feature which becomes active when three of the scatter symbols which are depicted by the golden medallions which are also the games logo.
The scatters do not pay anything, but they are the only way in which you can activate the initial free spins feature round and allow it to be reactivated. During the free spin’s bonus feature you can also land sticky wilds, and these can also land as expanded symbols.
Although well established Booming Games are relatively new in the slot game community and therefore it is in their best interest to ensure that their slots can be accessed by everyone. All players love the opportunity to try a slot out first and really get to know the game mechanics before they need to place a bet. Gladiator Arena is available as a free demo game in many of the online casinos, so I suggest you check this out and gain some experience of the way this slot works before risking any of your hard-earned cash.
Although Gladiator Arena is a theme that is popular amongst developers there are few that have managed to do this theme well? Booming Games have made an excellent job with this slot as the design and graphics are well executed and whilst the game play is relatively simple there are some good chances to land wins. I particularly like the fact that I could play the slot first for nothing as I got a good idea of how things worked and when I did in fact play with my own money, I managed to land some wins. With regards to pay outs the game offers great potential due to the expanding wild symbols when they come into play.
