- Click ‘−’ or ‘+’ under the BET/LINE to choose the line bet.
- Choose your paylines on the panel by clicking ‘–’ or ‘+’.

- To use Autoplay, you must first set the Autoplay session limitations. See below for more information about setting Autoplay limitations.
- Reels can also be spun using the Auto play function. Mouse over the AUTO PLAY button to display the list of options.
- Click on an option to start the Auto play function. During the Auto play mode the AUTO PLAY button changes into STOP. Click the STOP button to stop Auto play mode.
- To enter the triggered feature, click the START button. After the end of the feature, click CONTINUE on the winnings summary screen to return to the main game or resume the Auto play mode (if there are any auto spins left to play).
- The paytable can be accessed via the INFO page.
Before entering Autoplay mode you must set the Autoplay session limitations. The set Autoplay session limitations apply to only one Autoplay session in the current game.
In the ‘Responsible Gaming – Auto Play’ dialog box, you can set the following:
- Stop Autoplay on overall loss of: (mandatory). The amount of money you can spend in the Autoplay session. If you reach the set limit, Autoplay will stop.
Note that each Autoplay bet reduces the set limit, and each Autoplay win increases the remaining limit.
- Stop on single win more than: Checkbox and win amount (optional). Autoplay will stop if you win more than the set amount, on a single bet.
- Stop Autoplay on Jackpot win: Checkbox (optional). Autoplay will stop when you win the Jackpot. This limitation is available only for progressive games.
To save your settings and start the Autoplay session, click Confirm. To return to your regular gameplay, click Exit.
- Wins are calculated according to the Paytable which can be accessed via the Menu.
- Line win = line bet × corresponding multiplier according to the paytable.
- SCATTER win = total bet × corresponding multiplier according to the paytable.
- If more than 1 active payline has a winning combination, the winnings are added up. If 2 winning combinations occur on the same line, you will be paid the value of the higher winning combination. Winning combinations must start from the leftmost reel, and the symbols have to be consecutive along a payline. The SCATTER symbol is an exception to these rules. More information about the SCATTER symbol can be found below.
- The accumulating winnings and all payline wins are shown for each winning spin. In the case of large wins, a Win popup opens displaying the total spin revenue.
The WILD symbol appears on reels 2, 3 and 4 only. It can stand for any other symbol, except SCATTER, to make the best possible winning combination. WILD symbols do not win on their own, they only win when substituting.
If 3 WILD symbols appear simultaneously in any position on reels 2, 3 and 4 during the main game or during Free Games, the Gladiator Jackpot Bonus round is triggered.
The SCATTER symbols do not have to occur on any particular payline. If there are 2 or more SCATTER symbols in any position in the spin results, the payout earned is multiplied by the total bet and added to any payline winnings.
If 3 or more SCATTER symbols appear simultaneously anywhere on the reels during the main game, the Coliseum Bonus round is triggered.
GLADIATOR JACKPOT BONUS
The Gladiator Jackpot Bonus is triggered when 3 WILD symbols appear simultaneously in any position on reels 2, 3 and 4 during the main game or during the Free Games.
In the Gladiator Jackpot Bonus round, the game randomly picks 9 helmets in either gold, silver or bronze. Each helmet awards a prize that is a multiple of the total bet, with golden helmets winning the most and bronze helmets the least. The values of those 9 helmets are accumulated and make up the total Bonus prize. Collecting 9 golden helmets during the main game wins the Gladiator Jackpot. Winning the Gladiator Jackpot wins only the Jackpot sum, but does not add the cash prize from the 9 golden helmets to the Bonus win.
In case you win the Jackpot while one or more other players are spinning for it, the player who triggered the feature first will win the full Jackpot amount (seed plus progressive) whereas the other player(s) will be awarded the Jackpot seed only.
The Jackpot cannot be won if the bonus is triggered during the Free Games.
The Jackpot for this game works like this:
|Seed (how much money the Jackpot starts out with):||€50,000|
|Average contribution rate (what average percentage of each bet goes into the Jackpot):||1.00%|
|Win condition (the result you have to get to win the Jackpot):||9 golden helmets during the Gladiator Jackpot Bonus round.|
|Win requirements (what you need to do to be eligible for the Jackpot):||Play the Gladiator Jackpot slot game.|
- The seed and Jackpot values are in EUR in the progressive network and their value in your local currency is dependent on the currency exchange rate specified by the casino.
- Imperfections in the Internet connectivity may cause you to experience delays in Jackpot messages or updates, but they do not affect actual Jackpot wins.
- If a Jackpot is being discontinued (a game is closed and removed from the casino), you will be notified of it by the casino.
COLISEUM BONUS ROUND
The Coliseum Bonus round is triggered when 3 or more SCATTER symbols appear in any position on the reels. The Coliseum Bonus round includes a grid of 4 rows and 5 columns. Starting from the bottom row, pick one stone at a time from the rows to win a prize.
- Stones picked from the first row determine the number of Free Games.
- Stones picked from the second row reveal the win multiplier to be used during the Free Games.
- Stones picked from the third row reveal an EXTRA SCATTER symbol to be used during the Free Games. EXTRA SCATTER can be one of the theme symbols, except Commodus and Lucilla, or one of the royals (A, K, Q, J, 10, 9).
- Stones picked from the fourth row reveal an EXTRA WILD symbol to be used during the Free Games. EXTRA WILD can be one of the five theme symbols (characters from the Gladiator movie) only.
EXTRA WILD and EXTRA SCATTER appear just as the original symbols, but act as WILD or SCATTER symbol respectively.
When a stone is picked, one of the following occurs:
- The next pick is made from the row above.
- An extra pick is given in the currently active row (applies only to the first and the second row).
- The whole column is automatically opened.
- The selected stone reveals a Collect item – the Bonus round ends and the Free Games start.
The win multiplier applies to all line wins and SCATTER and EXTRA SCATTER wins during the Free Games.
During the Free Games, the reels are spun automatically using the same number of lines and bet per line as on the spin that won the Coliseum Bonus. The Coliseum Bonus round cannot be retriggered. However, if COMMODUS appears anywhere on reel 3 during the Free Games, 3 extra Free Games are added to the remaining ones. The win multiplier, EXTRA WILD and EXTRA SCATTER symbols do not change.
During the Free Games, the Gladiator Bonus round can be triggered. Note that EXTRA WILD does not substitute for the WILD symbol towards the Gladiator Bonus round. In addition, the Free Games win multiplier does not apply to the Gladiator Bonus round prizes.
During the Free Games, WILD and EXTRA WILD substitute for all symbols, except SCATTER and EXTRA SCATTER. WILD also substitutes for the EXTRA WILD symbol. Note that EXTRA WILD can still win according to the payout of the original symbol when the symbols appear on an active payline. This is paid out if the win amount from EXTRA WILD symbols is larger than the win from the regular symbol (by EXTRA WILD standing in).
The EXTRA SCATTER symbols do not have to occur on a particular payline. If there are 3 or more EXTRA SCATTER symbols in the Free Game results, an additional win is earned and added to payline winnings. The EXTRA SCATTER wins according to the payout of the original symbol, but the payout is multiplied by the total bet.
