You do not need to go back far to find a time where if you tried to explain a gambling game involving lining up croutons, a salad-eating lion and a Roman Emperor you’d be taken away for psychological assessment. This is exactly the combination you will find in the entertaining Caesar Salad from Amaya. This is a 25 win-line online slot with a lot of good humor.
Aside from the jokes, Caesar Salad slot machine is a solid slot rather than a complex one. There are wilds and scatter symbols in play – and a single bonus game. This involves 10 free slot games, along with a multiplier for any wins.
You can choose from 25 or fewer win-lines on this game. With frequent wild symbols in play, I recommend staying with the full 25 and adjusting your coin size instead. You can bet from 1c per line and up. Auto play lets you choose how many spins, and will stop once the bonus feature is triggered.
Caesar himself, who is biting on a chicken leg, is the best paying symbol. This will pay 7500 coins if you get 5 of a kind, 1500 for 4, 200 for 3 and 10 for just 2 from the left. Caesar is also the wild. This means he will substitute for any of the other symbols, with the exception of his wife – the scatter symbol.
Of the regular symbols, a Roman centurion has the next highest prize. This is worth 2000 coins for 5. The lion munching on a salad is next at 1000, with a chariot and plate of salad completing the high paying symbols – both are worth 500 coins for the full set.
This slot does not have playing card or other filler symbols for the smaller wins. Instead you will see a golden wine goblet, olive oil, grapes, bacon, cheese and croutons making up the smaller wins.
Caesar’s wife is the scatter symbol. If you hit 5 of these anywhere on the reels, you get a 100x your total spin amount prize. 4 scatters are worth 10x your bet, 3 get you 5x and just 2 scatters double your bet amount.
If you hit three or more, you’ll get 10 free spins. Unusually, there is no message or transition screen between the base game and the free spins round. You’ll know you are in the feature thanks to a lively song (almost folk-like), and small message under the reels telling you how many free spins you have remaining.
The good news is that during this bonus game all wins are tripled compared to the main pay table. This makes the top prize 22,500 coins for 5 of the Caesar symbols while the bonus game is running. You can retrigger the bonus with 3 more scatter symbols.
The graphics give away the fact that this is not the newest online slot right away. Some of them are reasonably detailed, though they are all a little blocky compared to more modern work.
Above the reels you will see a Roman aqueduct, with leaves of salad and croutons around the logo. There are bright line markers either side of the reels. The mix of salad and Roman symbols gives the whole slot a crazy feel. Caesar is a large guy, and will pick up and eat a big chicken leg if he is involved in a win. The other stand out symbol for me is the lion, who looks more than a little unhappy that he is eating salad.
Sound effects are clunks and electronic beeps, with shorty sharp tunes when you create wins. The song during the free spins game does not sound particularly Roman to me. If anything, this is the type of tune you might here at the Oktoberfest!
The game does not change at all graphically during the free spins bonus round.
There is an element of humor about this game – though it is a bit of a basic slot once that joke starts to get old. The mix of symbols is curious, and adds a new twist to the many Roman themed slots out there. The only feature is the free spins, and this is not really enough to keep you engaged for long. This game is certainly worth a quick spin, though will probably not become anyone’s long-term favorite.
