Golden Gladiator and Golden Egypt Are The Newest Online Slots At The Golden Nugget

Gold is the slots them at the Golden Nugget with two new titles from IGT and High 5.


The Golden Nugget online casino has launched two new slots games for the New Jersey market, Golden Egypt and Golden Gladiator.

There’s no surprise in the Golden Nugget choosing new games with a golden theme, but they actually come from two different slot designers. The Golden Egypt game comes from IGT and Golden Gladiator from High 5.

Golden Gladiator

The game backstory is an epic historical drama. The emperor decided that his daughter’s lover was an unsuitable partner so he banished him to fight in a war.

Now the man is back, looking to get even and reclaim his true love. Meanwhile the emperor has promised her hand to the last man standing in a gladiator battle to the death.

A love story and a battle, all played out on six sets of 2x2 reels.

If you get four similar symbols in one of the six play areas, they fuse together to form a large version of the symbol. The large symbols form what are called Scatter symbols and create winning combinations.

One or more Scatter symbols in any position opens the possibility of a free game bonus. This takes place on a second set of reels and you receive between seven and 30 spins.

There are multiple tiers and bonuses including the Treasure Tier bonus which is enabled when one or more large Shields are activated.

The Golden Gladiator offers a return to player rate (RTP) of 95% and a maximum payout of $500,000.

Golden Egypt

Golden Egypt lacks some of the romance of Golden Gladiator, but it adds its own tweaks to the reel layout.

There are a standard five reels, but above each are two empty slots for Golden Coins. Whenever you get a Golden Coin on a reel it moves to the slot above. Fill both slots and it turns that entire reel Wild for your next two spins. The feature is called Wild Stays 2 Plays.

There are more Wild symbols on the reels as well as bonus symbols. Three or more Bonus symbols enable the Player Decision Free Spins Bonus.

This is slightly tricky as you have to choose the combination of spins and Wild Reels you want to play. While the bonus lasts the Expanding Wild Reels appear on every spin and change position every time.

For three bonus symbols you can choose from:

    • 30 Free Spins + 1 Expanding Wild Reel
    • 15 Free Spins + 2 Expanding Wild Reels
    • 5 Free Spins + 3 Expanding Wild Reels

RTP for Golden Egypt is 94.2% and the maximum payout is $150,000.
