The Uprising title has fewer bonus features than the original release. But the Champion of the Arena Free Spins bonus round containing a guessing game is a feast for your eyes, both visually and mechanically. Another highlight in this game is the respin feature with gladiator-specific modifiers. Let’s take a closer look.
Wilds and Scatters
The three gladiator wilds, Spartacus, Belica and Emperor Gaius, can land anywhere on the reels to help you build a winning combination. The same trio acts as the game’s feature-triggering scatter symbols.
Gladiator’s Oath Respins
In addition to substituting for all paying symbols, wild scatters possess a set of special abilities. Catching at least one wild of the same kind anywhere in view will activate a respin and unleash the wild’s respective modifier, like so:
- Legion Slash – Spartacus adds 3-5 wilds to the reels.
- Full Strike – Belica turns 2-3 reels wild.
- Emperor Strike – Emperor Gaius adds 2-3 wilds with a 2x multiplier to the reels.
Champion of the Arena Free Spins
The Champion of the Arena free spins bonus round can be triggered with 2 different types of wild scatters. With no set number of free spins, the game continues until one of the gladiators wins, or it’s a draw. The battle could take as many as 100 spins if needs be.
To begin the round, you’ll choose the gladiator via the Guess the Victor feature, and if your chosen fighter wins, you’ll pick up a 5x your stake reward.
Each gladiator begins the fatal battle with 3 lives, and if you’re lucky to collect 5 wilds of a kind, you’ll unleash an attack. The attack kicks off a respin with the gladiator’s respective modifier, as seen during the Gladiator’s Oath Respin feature. Each respin depletes your opponent’s life count; plus, you’ll benefit from a random multiplier of 2x, 5x, 10x or 50x your stake.
The round ends when one of the gladiators loses all 3 lives or when you hit the 100 free spins limit, in which case, you lose the 5x reward. But, in the event of both gladiators reaching the third attack at the same time, the prize is still awarded.
Like the previous release, the Uprising version of Game of Gladiators doesn’t have a dedicated jackpot jackpot, but the top prize of 6,000x will be a nice reward for the lucky winners.
Surprisingly, Game of Gladiators Uprising arrives with medium volatility. However, this can be a good thing. Compared to high-volatility games, medium-volatility slots can be more consistent and still produce big wins – you just need to give it time, watch your budget and be patient. The RTP is also slightly lower than the original, with the default rate clocking in at 96.20%, but there are four other settings, so watch out for the lower rates before playing.
If you prefer mobile gaming, you can battle your way into fame and fortune on any of your favourite mobile devices, thanks to the game’s complete HTML5 setup.
