You’ve seen the film, read the book, now it’s time to play the game. Let Quickfire Microgaming transport you back to the Colosseum in Rome, 80 A.D. By then the Gladiator games had evolved into full-on blood sports, fighters being placed in classes based on their skill levels, experience, and their use of particular types of weaponry. Our Gladiators on Arena of Gold also have their own set of skills, and will be using them to help you win the prize pot.
The comic book style graphics belie the dark history of a bloody and barbaric time for slaves in Ancient Rome. But that’s okay. After all, we’re all just here for a bit of fun really. Let bygones be bygones and stomp through the reels while being fired up by some motivational Gladitorial style music. Tridents, swords, and spears at the ready? It is time then, let the games begin!
How to play
Buckle up, this is going to be a bumpy ride! The Emperor has called hush in the Arena, take a deep breath and get stuck in. Oh, okay, you don’t really have to fight or anything, just enjoy the visuals and use your imagination as you spin the reels.
In this game the Scatters can only land on reels 1, 3, and 5. This pays from anywhere, but cannot be substituted for by the Wild. And the Wild? Well, that is the Emperor himself in his regal purple robes and laurel leaf crown. He says to keep your friends close, and your enemies even closer. Your best ally in this game is the Red Gladiator as the highest paying symbol on the reels. There aren’t really enemies for you to worry about, everyone just wants you to have a good time and take home a big win.
A re-spin bonus is triggered by landing 6 or more Coin symbols. During this feature the coin symbols that triggered the bonus will be held, and the rest of the reels will spin for 3 re-spins. If you land more coins, the re-spin counter will reset to 3. Each coin will either display a cash prize, mini jackpot, or mega jackpot. Once the round ends, the rewards are added up and added to the player’s winnings. If the entire screen fills with coins - all positions on the reels - the player will win the maxi jackpot. 3 Scatter symbols landing on reels 1, 3, and 5 trigger the Free Spins round. 5 spins will be awarded, and during spins every 3 Scatters that land will award 3 more spins. During this game the reels transform into only 3 with the middle reel showing a full-size symbol.
