What glorious times were those! Julius Caesar at the head of the Roman Empire, the country is thriving, the architecture is blossoming, and the streets are full of philosophers, artists, craftsmen and skilled military men. Gaius Julius Caesar, the most powerful and Roman politician and military general, served as inspiration for RTG’s Caesar’s Empire slot which deals with the rise of the mighty Roman Empire.
Some call him a dictator; the fact is that Caesar was not what you would call a merciful and soft-hearted-man. He was a fierce leader and a unique historical figure, the first one who extended Rome’s territory to the English Channel and the Rhine.
The Julian calendar was created during Caesar’s reign, and his assassination became almost as well-known, if not more, than his achievements as military general and emperor. On the Ides of44 BC, Caesar was killed by a group of rebellious senators. It was a rather gruesome ordeal, and some of his assassinators were extremely close to him. This particular detail was used by Shakespeare in his tragedy Julius Caesar, with the verse ‘Et tu, Brutus?’.
The verse became synonymous with treachery and betrayal. But, on to more cheerful subjects! You have the opportunity to experience Rome in all its glory and power, to battle alongside the Romans, to conquer and rule – and enjoy plenty of profits and spoils of war in Caesar’s Empire slot.
Set in front of the Coliseum in Ancient Rome, the game immediately leads you onto the city streets where you’ll meet interesting characters known to history and hear the gladiator matches being cheered at by common folk. Caesar’s Empire is an epic journey through time, and it starts with the first spin.
I Came, I Saw, I Conquered Slot Wins
Caesar’s Empire is one of the older slots by Real Time Gaming. That becomes evident through flat graphics and absence of any lively animations. Still, the game holds up as it is colorful and suggestive enough to be enjoyable. The grand Coliseum is behind the reels, all five of them, with three positions each. Six symbols stand for low values – 9, 10, A, J, K and Q. There is a fruit and flower arrangement that’s worth a bit more, and then there are symbols of swords, shields and legionnaire helmets that fall into the middle range when it comes to payouts.
Watch out for Cleopatra. She may have been a drama queen for Caesar, but she’ll be extremely generous to you – a payout for five of a kind in no less than 2,500 coins. Caesar himself won’t make an appearance, but we’ll see coins with its image carved onto them. The coins will play the roles of Wild symbols and substitute all regular icons, minus the Coliseum. The ancient building is the Scatter, and it will pay in any direction.
The Caesar coin Wild lands on reels 1, 2, 3 and 4 only. When part of the winning combo, the Wild triples the payout. For a combination of 4 Cleopatras and 1 Caesar coin the payout is staggering 7,500 coins! Through two simple adjustment options, the players can set the size of their bet and the number of win lines (capped at 20). Caesar’s Empire comes complete with an Autoplay feature and appealing extra features. Don’t worry, they are easier to trigger than it is to learn Latin!
Proceed with Imperial Features
When one or more Caesar coins appear on screen and the Coliseum symbol lands on the fifth reel, the Free Games Bonus is activated. The player automatically receives 10 freebies, with all the wins doubled. During the bonus round, all Scatters turn into Wilds and Cleopatra symbols, the two highest valued icons. When Caesar coins land, each will award 5 additional gratis spins.
Caesar’s Empire is an affordable slot, as the minimum bet accepted is merely 20 cents. You can go as high as 100 dollars per spin if you feel ambitious and can cash out such wagers. Let’s not forget about the celebrated RTG progressive jackpot which isn’t tied to any bonuses. Instead, it is awarded randomly. You can see its current value above the reels. With each new bet, its value will rise, just like Caesar’s Empire.
