Hacksaw Gaming invites players to step into the Colosseum and prepare to fight the Gladiator Legends.
Gladiator Legends is a 5×4, 10-payline video slot that incorporates a maximum win potential of up to x10,000 the bet.
Symbols in the game include five classic A-10 royals worth x0.50 to x1 the bet for combinations of five-of-a-kind. These are followed by bloody tools such as hammers, axes and daggers.
Moving onto special icons, VS symbols expand into duel reels when activated and exist both in the base game and both bonus games. Moreover, wilds substitute for all regular-pays and are worth up to x30 the bet for five-of-a-kind.
The slot incorporates duel reels, multipliers and a champions of the arena and an unleash the beast bonus game.
Starting with duel reels, these derive from VS symbols. Each duel reel has two wild multipliers, each one representing a gladiator. The gladiators will duel with each other, and the surviving gladiator’s multiplier will be applied to the entire reel.
Base game VS symbols only expand into duel reels if the reel would form a part of at least one winning combination when expanded.
In the base game, duel reels can be both wild with a multiplier, and without. The possible multiplier values in the base game are x2, x3, x4, x5, x10, x15, x20, x25, x50, x75 and x100. If more than one duel reel with a multiplier connects to a line win, the multiplier values will be added together before multiplying the value of the win.
Furthermore, should the player land one VS symbol on each reel so that all reels are duel, all will be treated as entirely wild.
Moving onto the bonus games, here, VS symbols always expand whenever they land, and the possible multiplier values change: In the champions of the arena bonus game, players can get x1, x2, x3, x4, x5, x10, x15, x20, x25, x50, x75, x100, x150, x200, x250, x500 and x1,000.
Meanwhile, in the unleash the beast bonus game, the available multipliers include x1, x2, x3, x4, x5, x10, x15, x20, x25, x50, x75, x100, x150, x200, x250 and x500 for reels one, two, four and five. Additionally, on reel three, players can get multiplier values of x2, x3, x4, x5, x10, x15 and x20.
In order to activate the champions of the arena bonus game, players must land three arena symbols at the same time. Meanwhile, the unleash the beast bonus game is triggered by landing three beast symbols at the same time.
The champions of the arena bonus game starts with three spins. Every time a VS symbol is landed, the number of free spins is reset to three. The metre next to the grid displays the number of remaining spins. The bonus game continues until you get three non-winning spins in a row.
Moreover, in this bonus game, there are reel multipliers above each reel. Landing VS symbols on all reels will let them fight their way through the arena: when a duel reel is expanded, the winning duel multiplier will replace the current reel multiplier on that reel. This means that the player also risks losing a high multiplier everytime a new VS symbol lands on a reel. The current reel multiplier value will always be the top of the two multiplier values in a duel on that reel.
An additional feature in this bonus game is the multiplier coin symbol. There are two types of coins: normal and epic.
When a normal coin lands on a reel, it will reveal a multiplier value of x2, x3, x4, x5 or x10 and multiply the corresponding reel multiplier value with the value on the coin. Meanwhile, when an epic coin lands on a reel, it will reveal a multiplier value of x2, x3, x4, x5 or x10 and multiply all reel multipliers; value with the value on the coin.
The unleash the beast bonus game, as above, starts with three free spins, also resetting to three whenever a VS symbol is landed. The metre next to the grid displays the number of remaining spins. The bonus game continues until you get three non-winning spins in a row.
In this bonus game, players have reel multipliers on reels one, two, four and five. The reel multipliers accumulate the value of duel multipliers from their corresponding reels throughout the bonus. Reel three, the ‘beast reel’, is initially locked and will not spin.
This will be unlocked when a VS symbol has landed at least once on each one of reels one, two, four and five. Lastly, reel three has a special beast duel with a multiplier that multiplies the other reels’ duel multipliers before they are added to the reel multipliers.
