Time for a quick history lesson just in case you haven’t a clue who the Great Czar is. Well that was the name of the ruler of Russia in the 1700s and was known for being extremely welcome. Not so the rest of the country so you can see why there was eventually a Russian revolution.
This Russian themed game has a total of five reel, three rows of symbols and there’s an impressive number of 30 pay-lines for you to hopefully get a host of wins on. It has a good look to it and above the reels you can see some famous Russian landmarks
Playing the game isn’t going to cost you too much. The minimum cost of activating all the pay-lines is just €0.30. The maximum cost is €150 so high-rollers will be showing some interest in trying their luck on this game and will be well rewarded if their luck is in. Before you start playing, just work out a budget and then stick to it ensuring there are no problems caused if lady luck isn’t on your side.
The symbols in the game include the Great Czar himself looking very regal and wealthy indeed. We also get to see his wife, the Czarina, some precious diamonds and golden coins illustrating just how rich the family was in those days. You also get the ten to Ace playing card symbols that join in with the theme as they are portrayed in a Russian style. Wins are paid out if you can get at least three matching symbols on a pay-line in a left to right direction.
Shield Those Wins
You’d have thought that the Great Czar himself would have been the all-important wild symbol in this game. Well you’d be wrong because that honour is given to the shield. This can be really important for you as it can substitute for other symbols (with the exception of the scatter and bonus symbols) to get you some winning combination.
The scatter symbol is the golden crown and when these appear anywhere on the reels it gives you some good wins. This can be as high as 150x your total bet if five appear anywhere on the reels. The bonus symbol is the Russian Empire sign which will help you get into the bonus round.
Make sure some research is carried out before playing this game. That really helps you before you start pumping some real cash into this slot. Some free games will show you how everything works, particularly the bonus game. Then have a look at the paytable to learn as much as you can about how much the winning combinations pay out and details of how the bonus game works. More about this in the next part of this review.
Imperial Crown Bonus
Some right royal wins can wing their way into your account if you are lucky enough to trigger the bonus game in this slot. How do you manage to do that? Well, three or more of the bonus symbols will get you into the Imperial Crown Free Spins Bonus Round.
Once triggered you are given some free spins and a multiplier so this can really prove to be a round that can get that account balance of yours soaring. Just how many free spins and the size of your multiplier depends on how well you do when choosing from the domes that appear. The options open to you are 30 free spins with a 1x multiplier, one spin but with a 30x multiplier, 15 spins with wins doubled or two spins with a 15x multiplier. Then it’s time to start playing with whatever you’ve been awarded and hope for some more good luck.
Another great slot from Microgaming. It has a good look to it with some well-designed symbols. The theme is an interesting one and well adhered to. The bonus game can definitely give you some good wins If the number of free spins and multiplier reach high levels. Plenty of reasons therefore to give this game a go, a few wins might crown off a great day.
