Despite ruling Rome for only five years (49-44 BC), Julius Caesar is one of the most-famous leaders of all time. That said, it’s hard to make an online slot that lives up to this legend. But Realtime Gaming (RTG) has given it a shot with Caesar’s Empire slots.
How well does Caesar’s Empire stack up to the legendary ruler who helped expand the Roman Empire? Find out by reading about this 5-reel, 20-payline game’s atmosphere, graphics, special features, betting options, and payback.
Atmosphere and Symbols
Caesar’s Empire was released by RTG in 2005. That said, the background graphics aren't as impressive as what you’ll see in today’s 5-reel slots. Nevertheless, it doesn’t look bad either with its depiction of the Roman Colosseum.
The music and sound effects are rather lacking. You’ll hear several generic sound effects that come from other RTG slots. The only original sound is a gallant trumpeting noise when Cesar appears in a winning combination.
Symbols include Caesar (wild), the Roman Colosseum (scatter), Cleopatra, a sword and shield, Fruit bowl, A, K, Q, J, 10, and 9. Appearing on reels 1, 2, and 3, Caesar substitutes for all other symbols except the Colosseum to form wins.
He also triples any prize in that he appears in. One example is Cleopatra who normally pays 2,500 coins for 5 symbols. But if Caesar is one of these symbols, Cleopatra will pay 7,500 coins.
The graphics in this game are fairly plain when compared to other slots. But the good news is that everything looks clean, and you won’t have any trouble telling what the symbols are.
Caesar's Empire Slots Special Features
Caesar’s Empire offers free spins, scatter payouts, and a progressive jackpot.
10 free games are awarded when Caesar appears on reel 1, and the Colosseum shows up on reel 5. All prizes are doubled during free spins, And all Colosseum icons are changed to either a Caesar or Cleopatra. Any Caesar symbol that appears in reel 5 during free spins awards another 5 free games.
The Roman Colosseum also delivers scatter payouts. These include 1x (2 symbols), 3x (3 symbols), 10x (4 symbols), and 100x (5 symbols) payouts on your triggering bet.
The progressive jackpot is worth $50,334 at the time of this review. What’s nice about Caesar’s Empire’s jackpot is that it's rewarded randomly on any spin. This means it doesn’t matter how much you bet because you're always eligible for the jackpot.
This game’s betting options include the ability to change bet (coin size) and lines. The coin size can be adjusted from $0.01 to $5,00 per line. The number of lines can be changed from 1-20 with either buttons on the sides or underneath the reels. The minimum bet per spin is $0.01, while the max wager is $100.
One more option includes autoplay, which allows you to spin the reels automatically with your selected betting options.
Caesar's Empire Slots RTP
Caesar’s Empire features variable payback ranging from 91% to 97.5%. The lower range is extremely bad for an online slot, while the higher range is among the best you’ll find in gaming.
Final Thoughts on Caesar's Empire Slots
Caesar’s Empire won't blow you away with its graphics, nor will it bring the Roman Empire back to life. But this game isn’t bad for a few spins if you enjoy historical slots and/or simple games.
The free spins and scatter payouts are nice touches to this game. We also like how the jackpot is currently worth over $50k, and that you can win on any spin. This being said, give Caesar’s Empire a try if you like simple slots with big jackpots.
