Caesar’s Empire Slots

Caesars-Empire-slotCaesar’s Empire is one of the RTG games that has as a theme an ancient civilization. In this case we get one of the most impressive empires, the one built around Rome more than 2,000 years ago. Caesar is one of the better known rulers of this empire and one of the main Romans that contributed to its expansion. The greatness of Caesar and his empire can’t be denied, so I’m happy to be able to review this game and see how they approached the topic.

The game that RTG came up with is a standard 5 reel title that has a total of 20 paylines inside. Whether we’re talking about wild symbols, about scatters, free games or about multipliers, this slot has it all. Prizes of up to $37,500 are offered inside, plus a random progressive jackpot.

Features of Caesar’s Empire

A gold coin that has Caesar on it, with the words Julius Caesar inscribed on its margins, is one of the most important features of the slot. This is a wild symbol, capable of giving up to 2500 coins in prizes, plus it also does its usual job and substitutes for non-feature symbols. It will only appear on the first four reels in the game, but you only need four wilds to get its prize. The Caesar gold coin triples the payouts that it contributes to.

The Coliseum is another huge symbol of the Roman empire, still around today and a magnet for tourists that want to get a feel of how great the city of Rome once was. It takes the role of a scatter symbol in this case, so it awards cash prizes as long as you have a minimum of two symbols in any spot on the reels. Get the maximum of five scatters, and you will notice a significant bump in what it pays you, going up to 100x the value of the total bet.

Free Games Feature

The round of free spins that you get here is interesting because it is triggered differently than in other slot machines. While most games ask for a minimum of three scatter symbols in order to start the free spins, here you need a single scatter on the 5th reel, while at least one wild symbol is present on one of the first four reels. If that happens, you get the free games feature and there are 10 rounds awarded to you with 2x multipliers.

For the duration of these free games, you will find that the Caesar wild can also appear on the 5th reel, not just on the first four. Another change is that the Coliseum symbol turns into either Cleopatra or into Caesar if it shows up during free spins.

The feature can be retriggered with the help of a Caesar wild symbol. Each of these wilds gives you an additional 5 free spins.


Betting options and jackpots

Caesar’s Empire allows the player to modify the number of lines if needed, but the real betting is done with a simple Bet option, where you either click on the Down or the Up arrow to adjust the value. If the 20 lines are all selected, you start at $0.20 with the bet and you can go up to $100. Coin values are anywhere between $0.01 and $5.
You will find the game’s progressive jackpot to be a nice addition, giving you an extra chance at a prize worth a few thousand dollars. It’s randomly awarded, so it can’t be triggered by any kind of event from inside the game.

As for the game’s own payout, its exact size is influenced by the size of the wager you’re making. You can get up to 7500 coins, if the best case scenario applies to you, where four Cleopatra symbols are accompanied on the same payline by a Caesar wild.

Design and symbols

I’ve found that Caesar’s Empire is quite well made, but only if we consider the era that it tries to mimic. For a game focusing on the Roman era, Caesar’s Empire looks the part. It uses the Coliseum as a backdrop, quite representative for what this civilization has accomplished in the past, plus it combines all kinds of Roman soldier items to give it a more military look. The playing cards are the real disappointing part, simple stock images without any connection to the theme.

Symbols: Caesar Gold Coin (wild, 2500x), Coliseum (scatter, 100x the bet), Cleopatra (2500x), Roman Helmet (500x), Sword and Shield (200x), Fruit Bowl (150x), Ace or King (125x), Queen or Jack (100x), Ten or Nine (100x).


Is It Worth Playing?

As a fan of history or of the Roman Empire, you’re going to love this game. Its got a bit of a retro design, but it works for it and I’ve enjoyed it. It does pretty well in every other aspect, including with the way the free spins feature is handled. The one thing I was annoyed with was the presence of the playing cards, taking up about half of the roster of symbols and without a connection with the theme.

Caesar’s Empire can be found at any RTG casino, where you get a chance to play it for real money or in free mode.
