17.32 Gladiators

From time to time the gladiator pits in the Coliseum will be open for betting on some bloodthirsty battles.

In order to bet on a battle, you will need to get a betting ticket, a voucher, or gold. With any of these items, you can wager on one of the gladiators in the arena. You can begin betting on gladiators at 5 and 35 minutes past the hour (real life time). There are two fights every hour. The fights begin at the top of every hour and at the 30-minute mark.

Tickets will return a credit reward. Vouchers are worth a 1000 gold bet each. 

You can find the pits with the command PATH FIND GLADIATORS.
