As with all of our slot game reviews it’s important that we go through the different features in the game so that we really get to grips with it before we play.
Thanks to our review we will go through the Gladiator Legends theme as well as the different ways you can win in the game with the reels and paylines given further detail.
Theme – Gladiators
The theme of Gladiator Legends is all based around battling with the Gladiators to win prizes. With a 10,000x Max Win can you win the battle and get through the fight in style?
The game’s loading screen shows the VS symbol features with those symbols triggering a duel that turns the reel into a wild multiplier of up to 100x. The loading screen states that there are two bonus features but doesn’t go into detail about what they are yet, as well as highlighting the 10,000x max win that is available.
Similar to most slot games the basic symbols in Gladiator Legends are 10, J, Q, K and A with the premium symbols consisting of different weapons including an Axe, Hammer and Sword with all of them covered in blood due to the battles that are to be had.
The wild symbol in Gladiator Legends is a lion with 5 of them in a row paying 30x, plus the VS symbol turns the whole reel wild if it lands as part of a winning spin.
Gladiator Legends features 5-reels and 4-rows.
There are 10 paylines in Gladiator Legends.
As with every slot game one of the most important bits of information is the Return to Player and it’s no different with Gladiator Legends. The RTP in this game is 96.31x.
As always this percentage is not the same everywhere and online casinos often alter these figures according to their current policies. To spare you the trouble, we shared a list of UK casinos where you can play this game and the respective RTPs found there.
For an even more informed decision, we advise you to check our reviews and read about the casino's welcome bonuses and deals, game libraries, customer care, payment options, and other things available in each casino.
Several top-ranking operators have the Gladiator Legends slot in their offer, and many of them include a solid RTP for this title. Those who want to try other releases in well-established casinos should check the list of slot sites we recommend.
The stake range will always vary from different sites with some capping the stake with its high volatility but the Hacksaw Gaming states stakes from 10p to £100.
The Gladiator Legends online slot limits the maximum win at 10,000x the player’s bet.
There are two free spin features in Gladiator Legends with two different bonus symbols. Three Arena symbols lands the Champions of the Arena bonus whereas 3 Beast symbols gives you the Unleash the Beast bonus.
So you’ve hit three Arena symbols and you’ve now got the Champions of the Arena bonus feature. The bonus starts with 3 spins that reset any time you see a VS symbol landing on the reels. When that VS symbol lands the winning multiplier counts at the top, with those Duel Reels having bonus multipliers of 1x to 1000x. There are also coin symbols in this round with Normal coins having multipliers of 2x to 10x which multiply whatever the multiplier is at the top of the reel when they land. If you land an Epic Coin this then multiplies across all reel multipliers rather than just the one it lands on.
Three Beast symbols gives you the Unleash the Beast feature. Similar to the Champions of the Arena feature it starts with 3 spins that reset whenever a VS symbol hits. Reels 1, 2, 4 and 5 are all open and have the reel multipliers but when these hit they add to the number at the top rather than replacing it like in the Arena bonus. Reel 3 unlocks when you hit one VS symbol on each of the other 4 reels and with that can give you a Beast Duel multiplier which multiplies the other reels VS symbols if you hit them at the same time. Duel Reel multipliers in this one can range from 1x to 250x with the middle reel hitting anything from 2x to 20x.
The Gladiator Legends online slot game doesn’t have a jackpot prize but does have a Max Win of 10,000x available to be won in a single spin.

Play Experience & First Impressions
My play experience of Gladiator Legends was a fun one with constant hits coming in despite the high volatility. My 100 spins test had an RTP of 189% which is rare on games like these ones and was helped by a massive 229x base game hit. In slots like these with VS symbols multipliers available on the reels you always have the potential for big hits to happen.
Hacksaw Gaming are a popular provider for these big volatility games and it’s no surprise that this game is one of their more popular ones with their VS feature regularly hitting in this game.
I didn’t hit a bonus in my 100 spins test but it definitely felt hard to hit one here with not even a tease either but as said earlier you can hit big on this slot without getting into the bonus which is always a big plus.
The main first impressions of this game were all positive with Hacksaw Gaming releasing some great slots over the years and this one is no different. Gladiator Legends really feels like an exciting game to play while you are spinning and the gritty feel of the slot doesn’t feel too dark.
