Game description

Arena of Gold (Microgaming)

Arena of Gold (Microgaming)For this slot game, Microgaming chose to go with the Ancient Rome theme. On Arena of Gold, you will witness gladiator fights from the Coliseum.

For its game set up, Arena of Gold is built on 5 reels with up to 25 pay lines.

Some of the features here include free spins, Golden Re-Spins, scatters, wilds, and colossal symbols.  

Betting and Prizes

Arena of Gold has different bet sizes and depending on how much you are willing to risk, you can place bets of between $0.10 and $50 per spin.

This may not be some great news for high rollers, but either way, the prizes are within normal.

Arena of Gold offers several top rewards, and these range from the Maxi Jackpot (1,000x the stake), to the slot’s own rewards of up to 2,500x the stake.

The game has medium volatility with an RTP of 96.20%.

Arena of Gold Slot Features

Just like we see on other modern slots, Arena of Gold uses a wild symbol. Here, it appears in the form of an Emperor.

When you want to form winning combinations, you can use the wild symbol. Additionally, you can also use the wild symbol to substitute for other regular symbols.

These wilds can form winning combinations that can pay up to 20x the stake.

The scatter is also present in this slot, and it is the symbol that delivers the free spins.  However, for this to happen, you will need to land all the three scatters on the game’s reels.

This will earn you 5 free spins. An additional 3 free spins will come your way, but only after you land a new set of scatters on the reels.

Arena of Gold comes with an extra feature as well. This feature is in the form of colossal symbols which are 3x3 in size. These land on the three columns located on the middle part of the slot.

Last but not least is the Golden Re-Spin. This is not new in slots to trigger it here; you will need to land at least 6 coins on the reels.

At first, you get 3 re-spins with a possibility to reset them. With this feature, there is a possibility of up to 1,000x the stake.

Theme & Design

Arena of Gold takes you to the deepest space in Ancient Rome, and to be specific, in the gladiator fights of the Coliseum.

This theme is not entirely new, and there are a couple of slot games that have used it already.

However, Arena of Gold is a newer version from Microgaming, where the wild symbol comes in the form of an emperor. Other symbols include four high paying gladiators, scatters as well as Royals that represent low-value symbols.


Arena of Gold has great features and excellent design. The graphics are just fine, while its excellent RTP makes it fit perfectly in the league of most new slots.

However, this slot game does not have huge payout potential, and if you are looking for a slot where you can make serious cash, then this slot will most likely disappoint you.
