Late yesterday a punter playing Playtech's popular Gladiator video slot hit the game's progressive jackpot, taking home a hefty $1,433,265 prize as he emerged from the Colosseum.
We don't have any firm details on the win as of press time, but we can confirm that the jackpot was hit, and is the 12th jackpot win for the game since we began tracking it in 2013. The game's top prize pays out $1,410,002 on average, with the largest win in the game's history being $3.2 million, which was won at Winner Casino back in 2013.
The Gladiator Jackpot is hit when players are able to get nine golden helmets during the jackpot bonus round, which itself is set off when players get three wild symbols on the reels.
Gladiator has proven to be a very popular Playtech game since it's launch, as it is based on the 2000 Russell Crowe film of the same name. In the film, Crowe's character Maximus is enslaved by a treacherous Emperor and made to fight in the Roman Colosseum, with the goal of eventually overthrowing the Emperor... if he can survive.
