All the major characters in the movie find representation in the symbols used in the slot. The lower value symbols are the numbers 9, 10, J, Q, K, and A from a standard 52-card deck. The wild symbol in the game is the gladiator mask, while the coliseum is the scatter symbol. The wild symbol appears only on reels 2, 3, and 4 and substitutes all other symbols except the scatter symbol.
Landing 2 scatter symbols gives you a 1x multiplier win. Landing 3 or more scatter symbols across the reels during a spin triggers the Coliseum bonus. Pick the stones shown on the screen and start at the bottom row. For each pick you get a prize and a chance to do one of the following: collect all the prizes in the column you picked, pick one more prize from the row above, pick one more prize from the same row, or collect the prize and continue to the free spins segment of the bonus. When you are in the free spins section, this bonus cannot be re-triggered; however, landing the emperor symbol on the 3rd reel will give you 3 extra spins.
Landing the wild symbol on reels 2, 3, and 4 triggers the Gladiator bonus. 9 helmets of gold, silver, and bronze are randomly picked and the prize is added to your account. There is also the Gamble feature which helps you double your winnings - by guessing the correct card colour - or quadruple it, by guessing the correct card suit.
