One of the reasons why Roman soldiers were so successful in close combat was their short swords. Gladius KO is an online slot game by Green Jade Games inspired by the Roman empire. The graphics of this game look nice and include unique icons on bluish transparent reels. There’s also a Roman banner and a grim battlefield in the background.
Gladius KO comes with 6 reels and has 50 paylines. It has nine basic symbols: five silver playing card icons, a battle-ax, crossed short swords (gladius), and two coins. The eagle emblem is the slot’s wild icon. It replaces every basic symbol when needed. In case you land three loot chests on adjacent horizontal positions, you will get an instant win. Four or more of them will help you enter the bonus round. Above each reel, chest symbols can light up. It can help players create up to 5 chests in a row with up to 3 smashes. There’s a meter with discs next to the matrix. Each disc charges after 5 paid spins. Use the golden discs to smash symbols to get at least three chests in a row.
The bonus round we’ve mentioned before is actually a pick-me game where you have to pick positions to unveil prizes. Finally, we have the marching wild feature that makes the wild icons move to the left and increase the win multiplier with every new spin.
