Flapping For a Fight
When you think of gladiators, you think of mighty warriors in ancient Rome, but the Gladiators slot game from Endorphina is set on the ocean bed in what looks to be an underwater colosseum. What once was a land structure, is now surrounded by salt water, various fish and ocean creatures will step up to the arena in order to fight and produce wins.
Navigating the slot machine is simple as there are limited controls on display. To set your bet, you click the coin value to the top left and adjust the total bet arrow to the lower of your screen. You will come across a mighty shark, four fighting fish, seahorse drawn carriage, wreath and the usual card values of 10, J, Q, K and A.
You will need to bet high roller stakes of 210.00 to get the big cash from this slot machine, which isn’t the best news for those who like to play small stakes per spin. Entice the seahorse drawn carriage to fall as a full payline and you will be rewarded with the 30,000 cash jackpot. Five of a kind of the orange and yellow battling fish will trigger the second highest cash sum of 10,000. The two remaining fish will award 5,000 with all other symbols paying between 1,000 and 2,500 when a full payline is complete.
Flipping Good Action
In terms of bonuses, there are two features offered. To start with, you have your usual wilds and scatters – the wild is represented by the joker wreath and will substitute for all other symbols, bar scatter to help create winning combinations. Scatters are the shark – three or more will activate the free spins bonus.
The shark has the potential to award up to 50 free spins, depending on how many symbols fall on the reels. Another slot feature is the gamble bonus – this allows any base game win to potentially be doubled. Click take risk to gamble, a deck of 5 cards will be shown on the screen. Find a card that’s higher than the one shown to win. Keep going until you either cash out or supply an incorrect guess – where all your money will be taken.
Secrets of Atlantis is a similar slot to Endorphina’s Gladiators, as you are taken into the depths of the ocean to search for the treasure. NetEnt are the creators of this 5-reel, 40-fixed payline slot machine, with bets ranging from 0.20 to 200.00. There is a jackpot of up to 320,000 coins waiting to be discovered – will you be lucky enough to stumble upon it?
Worth the Battle?
Nobody likes to fight – but there’s a fight worth taking part in with the Gladiators slot game. Set the fish against each other and watch to see who becomes victorious. Try to get the man-eating shark on your reels, because this meaty chap can award some colossal wins with up to 50 spins. We found the slot game to be medium to high variance, which means the wins don’t often make an appearance and when we played, we were laying for long periods before actually getting a glimpse of the free spins. Your bankroll will take losses for long periods, so you’ll have to budget for this. Small stakes will just about manage to keep topped up, but it will eventually run out – unless you trigger high value symbols.
