Special Features

The first feature to highlight is that Gladiators Go Wild is a pays both ways slot. This means that you can form winning combinations not only from left to right but also from right to left making it possible to rack up plenty of wins as you spin the reels in this game.

Gladiators Go Wild features a range of symbols including low paying A – 10 icons along with 4 high paying Gladiator symbols. The Gladiator symbols are the most rewarding symbols in the game as they come stacked on the reels and if you happen to land 6 of these symbols on an active payline then you’ll be treated to a fine payout worth 40X your wager.

If you land a fully stacked Gladiator symbol on the reels then you will trigger the Gladiators Wild symbol and this symbol will lock into place and turn Wild for the next paid spin. A pleasing aspect of this feature is that you can land even more stacked Gladiators in this feature and they will also turn Wild and become sticky for the preceding spin. Land multiple stacks of Wilds and you'll be leaving the arena with a huge sum of money in your pocket that's for sure. When this actually happens the screen will shake to let you know you are on your way to a massive payout on the reels!

Theme, Graphics and Sound

In terms of visuals, the graphics are quite impressive as the game takes place in front of a stylish purple background with bright orange flames surrounding the bottom. The reels are covered by a nice gold inlay with tall Roman columns propping them up. Symbols in the game are expertly designed and consist of 4 different Gladiators as well as a bunch of A – 10 symbols. Each Gladiator has their own distinct look and style which is a neat visual touch to give them more personality and it really makes them stand out from one another. The animations are top-notch as symbols fly down the reels and are highlighted by a flaming frame when part of a winning combination. It is particularly satisfying when you land a fully stacked Gladiator on the reels as symbols combine together to reveal a full image of one of the Spartan warriors.

The music is dramatic and suspenseful with an atmospheric orchestral soundtrack used. It fits in really well with the Gladiator theme of the game.

Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots

The game has 10 paylines, a healthy RTP of 96%, and a decent maximum payout worth 1,600X your initial wager.

Our Verdict on Gladiators Go Wild

Leading software developer iSoftBet created this slot and it’s one swords and sandals game we really enjoyed playing. It features crisp graphics, a stirring soundtrack, along with a very small but decent range of bonus features. It’s just fantastic that you can land fully stacked Gladiators symbols that turn sticky but even better when you land a few of them together on the reels to help you bag yourself a huge cash prize. One minor criticism is that this slot does not feature any Free Spins or Bonus Games and if it had one of these features then it would easily make it that bit more replayable. The top prize for this slot is very good 1,600X your wager which can be won by filling all 6 reels with Stacked Wilds. When it comes to variance, I would say this slot is Medium so you will notice that wins are paid out quite regularly the more you play. For slots with a similar Gladiator theme, check out Gladiator Jackpot and Champions of Rome.
