This life or death battle takes place on a 5 reel Bitcoin slot with 3 rows and up to 30 paylines; dark marble columns frame the reels which are separated by ornate gold-trimmed strips.
The primary symbols are all related to the theme and include a black horse, a bag of gold coins, a tiger, a shield and spear, a shield and mace, a gold chalice, a flag and a view of the Colosseum.
The princess is an enhanced wild symbol, and there are several bonus icons including the hero and villain gladiators and a large door.
The Colosseum is the scatter symbol.
The controls are worked seamlessly into the theme and look as if they form part of the setting for the game. Bet per line, select line, max bet, and spin are all engraved into the bottom of concrete ornamental slabs, while view pay is discreetly placed on the top right-hand corner of the reels.
The princess is a standard wild symbol. However, when she appears on the top row of any reel, then she will sprinkle petals on to the positions below, turning them wild also. Any wins garner a 2x multiplier.
Should the hero gladiator land anywhere on reel 3 a bonus feature will be triggered. Here you will see a marble slab cover the center reel. The gladiator will then appear to break it down. An expanded wild will appear and covers that whole reel.
3 or more of the wooden door symbols anywhere on the reels will trigger a mini-game, and all you have to do is click one of the symbols to reveal a prize. You can keep clicking and collecting prizes until the ‘Collect‘ sign pops onto the screen.
Lastly but not least when landing the hero gladiator, the Colosseum and the villain gladiator alongside each other on reels 1,2 and 3 or reels 2, 3 and 4, you will get to choose the hero or villain as a winner and watch them battle it out briefly in a fight to the death.
