Gladiator Jackpot's gameplay is about as simple as it gets; it's a classic 5-reel slot with 25 paylines. That sounds like it should be more than enough, but it doesn't feel like you rack up many substantial wins during standard play.
Unfortunately, that's a by-product of the large size of the progressive jackpot. Combine that with the enormous maximum bet and you can easily understand how it's possible to put a serious dent in your bankroll playing this game.
There are two bonus rounds including a pick 'em round where you select helmets to reveal prizes...or maybe even the progressive jackpot, and a free spins bonus round where you might end up with anything up to 24 free spins with a 3x multiplier.
As far as free spin rounds go, that's pretty generous, but the high variance nature of the slot means that there's no guarantee you'll come away with a life-changing sum of money.
