The multi-awarded masterpiece by Ridley Scott has turned out to be a well-praised online slot game by Playtech. It’s such a big hit, that it sparked the creation of other movie-themed game slots like the Black Knight and Star Trek. The graphics from this gaming reel is a far cry from the graphics of the movie itself. I’m not sure if that’s just my expectations set too high, but visual satiation wasn’t achieved for the most part if you ask me. The audio was a tad better, giving me the thrill of watching Russel Crowe himself, at a match, in the famous Colosseum. On this note, it’s difficult not to notice that Russel Crowe himself isn’t anywhere in the design. Even the official poster only shows a silhouette of the Gladiator.
Game play goes far and beyond expectations, though. The bonus rounds are real uppers and can boost your payouts well. You’ll want to look out for The Coliseum bonus which allows you to choose the number of free spins and multipliers, and if you’re extra lucky, you might even get a chance to choose scatters and wilds as well.
