Microgaming’s Arena of Gold Slot Is On its Way
The gladiators were a legendary group of warriors that defended and entertained Ancient Rome thousands of years ago. They may have been fierce warriors, but they were also motivated by wealth, gold, and all the riches of the Roman Empire. These mighty men have made the perfect theme for Arena of Gold, a new gladiator-themed online pokies game from Microgaming, in partnership with All41Studios.
The developer’s newest slot release will be landing at 7Sultans Online Casino on 21 April 2020. It will be fully optimised for both desktop and mobile devices, so everyone can join in the fun on the platform they prefer.
Authentic Gladiator Visuals
Arena of Gold is a classic online video slot with 5 reels and 3 symbol rows. The action also takes place across 25 fixed paylines with adjustable coin and bet sizes. The reel grid is set against a beautiful scene from the inside of the Coliseum, where hundreds of gladiators once fought for glory. Players will be able to step into this scene and experience it in the flesh, complete with cheering crowds from the side lines and a thrilling soundtrack.
The reels of the new slot are packed with symbols that match its Roman theme. The lower paying symbols on the grid include the playing card symbols A, J, Q and K in different colours. Larger wins can also be landed by matching symbols of the Roman commander, 2 gladiators dressed in orange and blue, and a long-haired bard dressed in green. The commander offers the biggest potential wins of up to 40.00 for landing 5 of his symbol in one spin.
Mighty Bonus Symbols
There are also 2 bonus symbols on the reels of Microgaming’s Arena of Gold. The first is the Wild symbol, which is portrayed by Julius Caesar, the emperor of Rome. This symbol can fill in for all others except for the Scatter and the golden coin symbols. It also offers potential wins of up to 40.00 for players who can land 5 of a kind.
Then there are the golden Coliseum Scatter symbols. These Scatters award Scatter pays during the base game, and can also trigger the slot’s special features. They appear only on reels 1, 3 and 5, and must appear on all of these reels to trigger the Free Spins feature.
Golden Respins and Free Spins
The Arena of Gold Free Spins feature kicks off with 5 free spins. More free spins can be won by landing additional Scatter symbols. Another 3 Scatters will award players another 3 free spins to play with. In this bonus game, the 3 centre reels will merge into a single mega reel, and big symbols will appear on it in place of regular ones. Big symbols count for 9 regular symbols, while big Scatters count as only 1 Scatter each.
The golden coin bonus symbols can trigger another bonus round; the Golden Respins feature. This feature can be triggered from both the base game and the Free Spins round and offers 3 respins to start with. Whenever golden coins land, the respin meter will reset to 3. All coins that land will freeze in place on the reels, helping to boost players’ potential wins before the game is over. Each coin has a value of up to 100x your bet, and can award Mini and Mega jackpots and win multipliers at random. Fill all symbol positions with golden coins and a Maxi jackpot prize could be awarded too!
