Playtech's Gladiator Slot Gives a $1 Million Jackpot
Playtech’s Gladiator slot, based on a 2000 Hollywood movie starring Russell Crowe and Joaquin Phoenix, has become one of the most popular titles of the Isle of Man-based developer.
Maybe it’s because of its Roman theme, but it’s more probably that it has to do with the lucrative progressive jackpots this game has in store.
One lucky player saw just how generous the Gladiator can be, by managing to grab a hefty progressive jackpot worth $908,767, last week.
In a short statement released afterwards, Playtech said Gladiator had made one lucky punter a whole lot luckier. We have no details of the jackpot winner, but we’re sure we’ll have more on him soon.
As we’ve already mentioned, this Playtech successful progressive title draws its inspiration from the Gladiator movie. The game’s main protagonists are hero general Maximus and Commodus, the power-hungry son of Marcus Aurelius, but you’ll encounter more famous faces from the movie on some of the symbols.
This five-reel video slot with 25 adjustable paylines offers many chances to grab cash with bonus rounds, multipliers and additional Wilds, while the Free Spins feature awaits in the Coliseum bonus round.
Gladiator Jackpot bonus will give you the chance to win the game’s jackpot, which is done by collecting helmets. But if you’re too impatient to wait for the jackpot, you can always use the Gamble feature after a winning spin to double your winnings.
The betting starts as low as $0.01 per single line, while the maximum stake is $2.50 per spin.
