Golden Gladiator from High 5 Slots is an unusual slots game that's likely to perplex you when you first launch it. There are 12 reels, but these are split into six small blocks of two reels each. All six of these blocks are always in play and wins are formed across various blocks. This is a great slots game for anyone tired of the same old formula and looking for something a little different. With its Roman gladiator theme and slick gameplay, it's definitely a crowd pleaser.

Theme, Graphics & Soundtrack

The theme is Roman gladiators so you can probably guess what the game looks like and what kind of symbols you can expect to come across. The reels are set against a backdrop of a Roman arena, perhaps Rome's famous Colosseum, and the symbols include fierce looking gladiators and beautiful women in Roman dress. The lower paying symbols are made up of standard playing card symbols.

While there are plenty of Gladiator slots games out there from various developers, this one certainly stands out, both in terms of gameplay and quality. The graphics are high-end and gameplay is smooth and slick, despite it sometimes feeling a little slow due to all six blocks of reels finishing their spins at slightly staggered times. Wins featuring character symbols are elaborate, with mini movie style montages playing out on screen. The soundtrack features dramatic music, along with sound effects when wins are triggered. If you like the look of this game, you should definitely check out some of our other free play High 5 slots. This developer is known for its fun and innovative slots games.

How to Play Golden Gladiator

Don't be alarmed by the complicated looking set up as this is actually a very simple game to play. All of the reels are in play at all times so there's no need to adjust lots of settings every time you spin.

Step-by-step instructions

1. The first (and really only) thing you need to do to get started is set your bet amount to the desired level. This couldn't be easier. Simply use the plus and minus buttons on either side of the bet display to cycle through the available bet sizes. Once you're happy, you're good to go.

2. Hit the spin button and wait for the reels to leap into action.

There is also an autoplay function for times when you want to set up a predetermined number of spins so you can sit back and watch the game in action without having to repeatedly press the spin button Click on the autoplay button (an image of two arrows in a circle) and a pop-up menu will appear. You can set up to 100 spins and can set automatic loss and win limits, meaning the autoplay feature will stop if either of these limits is met.

If the 12 reels are too much for you, take a look at some of our six-reel slot games instead.

Bonus Features

Golden Gladiator has a couple of great bonus features, including a "pick me" feature and a free spins feature.

Golden Gladiator free spins bonus feature

One or more large bonus symbols landing anywhere on the reels during the base game triggers the bonus feature. The bonus symbol is also a scatter symbol and can appear anywhere. One large bonus symbol awards you seven free games, two will get you 15 and three large bonus symbols will award you a whopping 30 free games.

The free games bonus feature uses different reels to the base game. Sadly, free spins cannot be retriggered once you're in the bonus game.

Treasure Tier bonus feature

The game's other bonus feature is triggered in the base game when one or more large Treasure Tier bonus symbols appear anywhere on the reels. One symbol will get you two picks in the "pick me" game, two symbols will get you four picks and three symbols award you a generous six picks. The Treasure Tier symbol is a scatter and can land anywhere.

The bonus game triggered is a multi-tier bonus game, meaning you will have the chance to progress for bigger cash prizes. You'll be invited to choose from a number of symbols on the screen which will reveal either a multiplier or a cash amount. The multiplier begins at one and increases with each multiplier. If you reveal a cash amount while you still have picks remaining, all the remaining symbols are removed and replaced with the next tier of symbols. The game continues until you run out of picks.

Our Verdict

8/10. This game scores highly for being so unusual and for the huge amount of effort that's gone into each element of the slot. It is perfect for anyone who enjoys slots but is looking for something different to the thousands of identikit games out there. It's low volatility, which means wins are fairly frequent, but the chance of scooping a mega win are pretty slim.
