Jump Into the Colosseum for a Chance to Win
There’s no denying that there are a whole lot of games out there in the online slots world that use themes based on Roman and Greek concepts, particularly anything to do with soldiers or gladiator battles. The new Wild Gladiators slot is another addition to this sub-genre, and Pragmatic Play has put a whole lot of effort into it to make sure that it stands out from the other titles that may have a similar type of fundamental theme.
What Sets This Game Apart
First off, you’ll notice that the graphical style is set to use a unique type of animation that’s stylistic of some other titles that Pragmatic Play has produced, and that’s because it’s a part of their signature approach to make their games different than what’s available. Instead of using gaudy 3-D graphics or lazily put together visuals, they go for a style that appears to be hand-drawn.
On the gameplay side, you’ll quickly find that this game is jam-packed with different types of bonus features, and it starts with the Win Multiplier special sixth reel on the far-right side of the game board.
The special Win Multiplier sixth reel will give you total multipliers on your wins worth up to 10x their original value.
The gladiator in the gold and blue helmet is the main symbol that you’ll want to see on the reels. It’s a wild, but if it lands on the center spot of any of the five reels, then it expands vertically in both directions to cover that whole reel. Additionally, it pays 16x for five of a kind, 2x for four of a kind and 1x for three of a kind with wins based on a multiple of your total wager.
The golden Colosseum is an important one in this game also. They show up on the first, third and fifth reels, and they’re responsible for giving you a payout of 1x your wager if you get all three at once. However, you’re also given 10 free spins, and the multiplier on the sixth reel applies for all of your payouts in this bonus mode instead of being applied randomly like it is in the normal game.
Pragmatic Play Taking 2019 by the Horns
To go into a sub-genre that’s already saturated and to think that you can create a game that will stand out among dozens of already established titles takes a lot of confidence. However, that just goes to show how confident Pragmatic Play is in what it offers players and their ability to product action-oriented titles in the slot space.
With the Wild Gladiators video slot, we get to see that firsthand. Anyone who has played slots online for a while will have ran into at least a few of the games in this sub-genre, and unfortunately for some, it means running into a lot of repetitive play with similar themes, visuals and feature sets. However, Pragmatic Play set out to break the mold and it’s clear as day whenever you see what this game has to offer players.
They’ve committed to making 2019 their year, and their releases so far in the first quarter show that they’re serious about it. We’re really excited what they’ll come up with for the remainder of the year as well.
