While we may fantasize about Norse and Egyptian mythology more, there’s no denying that the one civilization that has truly impacted the world is the Roman one. They built an empire spanning the Mediterranean sea, and held a stable empire over a colossal amount of land for many long years. What started as a noble republic eventually descended into an empire after one ambitious man took charge amidst chaos and corruption – and Booongo Gaming’s 2018 release, Age of Caesar, follows the man’s triumph.
And while Caesar may have taken the risk crossing the Rubicon with his army in defiance to orders, the developers opted for a less risky strategy, using the familiar 5x3 playing field most gamblers are used to. The symbols themselves are a mixture of playing card icons and some generic ones with Roman flavor.
Play Age of Caesar
The theme of playing it safe continues with the special features, as well. First off, you have the free spins, which are activated by collecting two Scatters on the first and fifth reel at the same time, which rewards fifteen extra turns. It is possible to retrigger this feature if two Scatters appear once again, which rewards another fifteen free spins.
The second bonus is the mystery symbol, and we’ll admit we aren’t big fans of this. It essentially obfuscates the icons behind a sword symbol, revealing what they are after each spin. The only reason to consider them a bonus is because they cannot become low paying symbols while free spins are active. Apart from that, they simply serve as a mystery icon, which isn’t to our tastes.
How to Play
With a 5x3 playing field and 30 fixed paylines, gameplay is a simple affair – simply set your wager to your liking, press the spin button, and cross your fingers. That said, a major downside to this title is the absence of any RTP information, which is why we were forced to bring the score down drastically. We find it rather hard to believe that the same developers managed to produce an RTP for God’s Temple, which its varied reel set up and different achievements being difficult to track, but they couldn’t give us the information for a title with a relatively simple set up.
You can wager between $0.30 up to the maximum of $90 per spin. The largest jackpot in the title itself sits at $90,000.
Like in other Booongo Gaming releases, the autoplay is enabled here, and will keep spinning until you press it again to stop it. It’s certainly convenient, but don’t forget about it if you go and make some tea. We promise we’re not speaking from experience.
Strategy & Tips
We’d like to give you some helpful information here, but there’s really not that much that we can. The free spins don’t really have any mechanics to take advantage of, and you have no control over what symbols will appear behind the mystery sword icons. Just cross your fingers and hope for the best.
Given how widespread mobile devices are, it’s no surprise that the developers chose to go for platform parity. The visuals, user interface and gameplay are all exactly the same across all devices.
