Reap The Rewards With Arena Of Gold
Assume the mantle of a gladiator and fight for your rewards; it's a life and death battle that takes no prisoners! Presenting an innovative new feature, Golden Re-Spins™, Arena of Gold is a fantastic choice for fans of online pokies. As a medium volatility game, this is a good introduction for novices or a comfortable choice for low to medium spenders.
As you may have guessed, the theme of this online pokie is inspired by the ancient Roman gladiators. Perfect for Spartacus fans, Arena of Gold offers you the opportunity to enter the arena and join the fight to the death for the hidden treasure in the bloody dirt of the Colosseum. There are four colourful gladiators in red, blue, green and brown, with an emperor as the Wild, so the vibe is definitely Ancient Rome. Sound interesting? Then read on to find out what to expect from this exciting new game from Microgaming in collaboration with All41Studios.
Pick Your Battles
A 5x3 reel set slot game, Arena of Gold has 25 fixed pay lines, with the lines paying from left to right. If you win a line, your stake is multiplied by the current bet per line and only the highest win is paid. The maximum bet is $50 and the minimum bet is $0.10, but the default is $2.
If you activate the Wild symbol, this substitutes in for all symbols except Scatter and Coin. The Scatter symbol functions by multiplying the total bet staked and adds to your Payline wins. Scatter symbols appear on reels 1, 3 and 5 in the Base game, and the Coin symbol tells you what you've won. These symbols can appear and pay in any position, so keep your fingers crossed when planning your strategy.
There is also a total of 10 out-of-game achievements to get your hands on. These are for achieving Scatter, Wild, King, and more. You get an additional bonus for unlocking all of the Arena of Gold achievements and proving your mastery of the game.
In terms of free spins, you simply have to land 3 scatters anywhere on the board and you'll get 5 of them. During this, the middle reels come together to create a giant symbol, dramatically increasing your chance to win. This symbol counts as 9 smaller symbols, not including Scatter (which only counts for 1). If 3 scatters land during the free spins, you get 3 extra free spins.
What are Golden Re-Spins™?
Arguably the greatest part of the game, Golden Re-Spins™ greatly increase your chance of gladiatorial success. To activate this feature, you need to land at least 6 Coins. Each of these Coins then multiplies your bet, by up to 100x!
With the Golden Re-Spins™ feature, you get 3 free spins; if any Coin lands, the counter resets to 3. Re-spins either stop when there have been 3 consecutive spins with no Coin symbol or, alternatively, if all symbol positions have been filled with a Coin. Then it's the fun part: time to reap your reward! All prizes from collected Coins can be claimed immediately.
It's important to note that Golden Re-Spins™ has different reels - there are only Coin symbols and empty positions. The coin symbol carries a value (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 12, 15, 16, 18, 20, 30, 100 x bet).
To win the Maxi Jackpot, all 15 positions need to be filled with a Coin Symbol during a Golden Re-Spin™. Otherwise, you'll get 3 spins and then return to the base game.
The Base game payout is 58.87%, triggered every spin. Free spins see 1 in 234 spins at 14.75%, while Golden Re-Spins™ see 1 in 183 spins for a 22.61% chance of payout. Ultimately, Arena of Gold offers an excellent chance for a win. And with an overall payout percentage of 96.20% and a total hit frequency of 28.28%, you're bound to take home some treasure!
