An Ancient Rome Themed Slot Featuring Colossal Reels
In 73BC, Roman slave Spartacus led a slave revolt during the ‘Third Servile War’. The film ‘Spartacus’, released in 1960, retold the story and has become a ‘great’ in the history of cinema, with Kirk Douglas famously playing the leading role. The story has now made it onto the reels of a WMS slot. In this game you’ll find the title character fighting alongside a female slave, both in gladiatorial outfits. Fearsome opponents and lions also fill the reels, as well as combat equipment – yes, things are not going to get nice for the Gladiators!
Spartacus Gladiator of Rome is a larger than life, exciting game, with the following array of features:

The title symbol plays a major role throughout the game as the wild. This will substitute for any other symbol apart from the free spins scatter, ensuring many more wins. Like every other symbol in the game, the wild can appear stacked at any time on any of the reels.
If the wild fills any of the reels on the main reel set, the corresponding reel on the colossal reel set will also fill with wilds. These will be in addition to any other wilds, potentially making for some very high paying spins. These wilds appear on all five reels, with the dream scenario being the wilds filling all five reels in the main game and copying each across to the colossal reels too.
Look out for the feature symbol showing the Roman Coliseum, the site of the Gladiatorial battles. This appears on reels 1, 3 and 5 of both the main reel set and the colossal reels too. Land three or more across the two reel sets and you’ll win the following awards:
During the free spins, you’ll find an added bonus with the wild symbols. Any time a stacked wild appears anywhere within a reel on the main set, it will nudge up or down to fill the entire reel. In turn, the same reel on the colossal reel set will also become wild too. This makes for many more wilds in the game, with bigger and better win opportunities.
The main reel set of Spartacus Gladiator of Rome features a 5x3 reel set up, with 25 win-lines. To the right is the colossal reel set with 5x12 set up and an additional 75 win-lines. These 100 lines in total come at the cost of just 50 credits, as you only pay one credit for every two lines in this WMS designed slot.
Spartacus himself is the highest paying symbol in the game, worth 250 coins for the maximum five in a row. The female gladiator is close behind, paying 200 coins. The fearsome warrior and the lion each pay 100 coins, while the helmet and the sword/shield combination each pay 75 coins. The lower end of the pay table is filled with the playing card suits.
Despite featuring both a main reel set and colossal reels too, this game does a fine job of not appearing overcrowded. The backdrop to the game is an imposing dark red, while shiny pillars stand either side, marking the entrance to the arena. Above the main reel set you’ll find the movie-like title of the slot, which is matched by the movie-like soundtrack that accompanies the game.
Spartacus Gladiator of Rome is an enjoyable, all-action slot. With both the main reel set and the colossal reels offering a total of 100 win-lines, wins will never be far away. Look out for those stacked wilds on the main reels and you’ll happily see them transfer to the colossal reels too. With bigger and better winning chances in the free spins too, there is a lot to like about this WMS slot. You may need to wear a shield though.
