Playtech did a superb job replicating the theme and storyline. They included original images from the film with a Coliseum bonus, free spins, extra wilds, free games and more.

Look for the Gladiator slot next time you play at a Playtech powered casino and you too could be the next jackpot winner!

According to business media reports, the company’s share price took a dive of about 20% not the 5% they were predicting and anticipating.

According to reports, the amount of the knockdown that lessened the value of the stock was around GBP 650 million. This is the biggest decline for the company, and according to business sources, was one of two big declines for the stock exchange today.

The media outlet noted that Playtech didn’t comment on the UK governments review this week regarding Fixed Odds Betting Terminal stakes. They also noted that Teddy Sagi got rid of GBP 780 million of his shares earlier this year.

Playtech didn’t go into detail with the slow-down in Asia. Playtech’s relationship with the Malaysian market is an important one, and the gaming provider can’t afford to experience a slowdown. With the recently boosted enforcement regulatories, Playtech had commented before that they anticipated a decline with some of its Asian revenue sometime in the near future, but didn’t think it would be this soon.
