Great Czar delivers to the player a theme which, while not very easy to find, it is present in a number of other slot machines. The czars were the emperors of the Russian Empire up until the communist revolution, in the beginning of the 20th century. There are other slot machines with the same topic and a much better design than Great Czar manages to offer us. The game shows off its scatters, bonus and wild symbols and it can form combinations on 30 paylines. Its best prizes only go up to $125.
Betting and Prizes
The advantage of Great Czar might look like it’s related to its small wagers, but they also make sure that the top prizes are of insignificant value. You can use coins that go only from $0.01 to $0.05, up to 5 of them per line. With the maximum line bet being at $0.25, the total bet can’t surpass $7.50.
Should the best possible combination form on one of the lines of Great Czar, you can win 500 times the line bet, which could mean 2,500 coins, which are valued at only $125.
Great Czar Slot Features
The game will not give you great features, even though you have the needed symbols to trigger them. You have the wild symbol first, which is represented by a red shield, with an imperial bird with two heads. Acting as the substitute, the wild symbol can represent another symbol in a new combination. Combinations can form out of wilds and regular symbols, and you get paid as much as if you had only matching icons present. Wilds don’t substitute for bonus/scatter symbols.
Used as a scatter symbol, the Crown icon will be capable of appearing anywhere on the reels of this slot machine. It will pay relatively well for such a symbol, reaching a maximum of 150x total bet, for up to five scatters in any position.
The scatters also manage to bring you free spins, 15 of them and with 2x multipliers for all the wins. The requirement is to have 3+ scatters in place.
Theme & Design
It does show that it’s an older slot machine, not very appealing unfortunately, with a design style that might’ve been more fun to look at in the 90s, in video games of the time. The choice of the high paying symbols is good, showing you the Czar, his wife, shields, diamonds and crowns. The low paying symbols are less interesting to look at, having images of standard poker letters and numbers.
Great Czar slot should deliver you an interesting theme, but in every other way it’s not going to be too fun to play. It doesn’t have the prizes, graphics or features to make it a great slot machine.
