The Champions of Rome slot from Yggdrasil Gaming will be released on February 21, 2019, and the release of Wild Gladiators slot from Pragmatic Play is scheduled for March 7. Both games have high-quality visual performance and original bonuses.
In the Champions of Rome video slot, the action takes place in the Colosseum under the Roman Empire. Bronze, silver and gold coins appear on the reels, as well as bas-reliefs depicting animals which often decorate ancient Roman buildings as generic emblems. In the Gladiator bonus game, the player should collect various types of weapons (sword, mace, trident) in order to gain additional benefits to get a big win.
Free spins are activated when three to five scatters fall out on the playing field. Several free spin modes are available not only when a bonus combination is made, but also when buying a bonus for an amount of 50x of the bet. The original Deathmatch function consists of 3 levels, and the player will have to collect at least 450 coins on each of these levels. If this result is not achieved, all the money will be confiscated from the gladiator, and the gambler will receive a consolation prize.
As well as in the slot from Yggdrasil, the action takes place in the Colosseum, and the symbol with the image of the arena is a scatter. When three special symbols fall out, 10 free spins are issued.
The main feature of the video slot from Pragmatic Play is the presence of the sixth reel, on which additional multipliers are played out, as well as the super wild that launches re-spin mode. The maximum payout in the Wild Gladiators machine is 4,000x of the bet and is paid when five expanding wilds fall out on each of the reels.
