Graphics and theme
Despite its cartoon-like graphics and adventurous soundtrack, this game looks like something out of a comic book. Gladiatorial combat isn't the bloody violence of Ancient Rome; instead, it's a celebration of the thrilling entertainment it offered its citizens. There are crowded stands and banners hanging over a sandy arena under a blue sky. It is necessary to find the Scatter symbol in order to see the towering arena from the outside.
Many gladiators can be seen on the reels themselves, each wearing a different robe and wielding a different weapon (including a spear, sword and trident). Their work looks like they're enjoying themselves, not like they're being forced to fight. Graphically, it's not revolutionary, but it's a good-looking slot.
Here's how to play
When you load this game, there are four buttons in addition to the Spin button. There are settings (for volume and Quick Spin), menus (for game help and paytable), autoplay (for ten to 100 automatic spins without your interference) and a stack of coins which links to the bet adjustor.
Along with your standard symbols, the first, third, and fifth reels can host the Scatter, which pays anywhere and cannot be substituted by the Wild. Other than the Scatter or Coin, the Emperor himself is the Wild and can help fill a line by taking the place of any other symbol.
Once everything is set to your preference and you understand your game, it's time to hit spin. When three or more symbols appear consecutively from left to right along a payline, you win. Golden Respins and Free Spins can also be triggered by Scatters and Coins.
Variance and RTP
Most slots require an RTP over 95% if you want to make a decent return, so Arena of Gold's 96.20% looks promising. Over a series of games, RTP is calculated from the average return on a 100 bet. If you play Arena of Gold long enough, your winnings should level out at about 96.20 for every 100 stakes. This is assuming you don't suffer from some of the natural statistical deviations that can throw major variations into your results.
Volatility, or variance, is another way to measure a slot's profitability. Low volatility slots have lots of small wins, whereas high volatility games have fewer wins, but when they do arrive, they can be large. Arena of Gold is a medium volatility slot that is suitable for both casual and high roller players.
The payouts
In most payline slots, landing three or more matching symbols on the same payline will result in a winning combination. Despite the red warrior being the most generous symbol in the game, the biggest overall fixed win in the game is worth 2500x your stake, which isn't bad for a medium variance slot.
With Caesar as your wild symbol, you'll be able to land wins by substituting him for all other symbols. As well as appearing in stacks, he can boost your chances of winning as well.
Bonuses and free spins
You can trigger the re-spin bonus by landing six or more coin symbols. The coins that triggered the bonus will remain in place in this round, and the rest of the reels will spin for three re-spins. A different set of reels appears here, with only coin symbols and blank spaces. The re-spin counter will reset to 3 if you land more coins.
Each coin can display a cash prize, a mini jackpot, or a mega jackpot. After the round ends, your prizes will be added up and you'll receive their total. In order to win the maxi jackpot, however, you must fill the entire screen with gold coins.
You'll enter the free spins round if you land three scatters. Each time you land three scatters, you'll receive three more free spins. The middle three reels are combined to create a single reel with colossal symbols.
An overview
It's a good-looking online slot, but we wish it had a few more features. Still, it's not a boring game. The medium volatility and stacked wilds make for frequent wins that definitely keep you interested. This slot is definitely geared more towards players who enjoy classic gaming, but you can still enjoy a fun online gaming experience.
