Leander Games are based in Argentina and have made a name for themselves very quickly in the slot world with any release they make being welcomed by all promoters because of the team known for their spectacular design and bold innovations. The mechanics and vast array of titles they have to offer is impressive and they have also taken on partnerships with some of the most well-known individuals such as their partnership on the stunning Dragon Slot by Ciruelo, which showed a fabulous collaboration with Leander Games and the world-famous dragon illustrator Ciruelo Cabral. Even so, Leander Games have not yet managed to produce a universal successful slot machines like their competitors, however we do not expect it to be long until they do especially if they carry on producing such polished and entertaining slots that are part of their current catalogue.
Ave Caesar offers both criteria as it is entertaining and superbly executed and offers players a plethora of features which not only keep them amused but also gives them great chances for big winnings. But, knowing how conniving Caesar is, can this free slot really deliver what it promises? The slot gets going once the player has selected the bet they wish to make across the 20 fixed pay lines and this ranges from 0.20 per spin to 40.00 per spin and whilst this won’t attract the high rollers it will suit most gamblers. The backdrop of the slot game is filled with impressive Roman architecture with the reels being completely translucent. There are Doric and Tuscan columns that appear on the screen complete with golden eagles and laurel leaves which places player right in the centre of the Roman Empire.
There is no doubt that the graphics are excellent however the jury is still out on the choice of soundtrack, this being a chord that builds in the background, this is then overlaid with horses, crowds and street noise, this coupled with the jingle as the reels spin can take a while to get used to, and there is no real connection to the slot. When it comes to the symbols the players can expect to come across Roman numerals, the games logo and four different characters, these being a woman, centurion, legionnaire and Caesar, the first three pay out x300 of the line bet.
The game logo provides pay outs of x400 of the line bet for landing five of a kind, but the top prize unsurprisingly comes from Caesar who pays out x1,000 and is also the wild symbol in the game. Players should be warned that the action on the reels can appear slow to begin with even if the player has chosen the fast game option. It is only when players get to the special features that the slot begins to make sense. When it comes to features players could come across the Hannibal's Heroes feature, and this sees Hannibal driving elephants across the reels leaving many matching symbols.
Alternatively, the player could experience the Gaul feature, this sees rocks being thrown at a native who goes by the name of Gaul, with this feature any rocks that land in the reels morph into many of the same symbol. rocks that land on the reels will transform into multiple occurrences of one of the symbols. In the Centurion Maximus feature players can watch as the leader of the army marches his legionnaires over the reels and as they pass over the reels they leave a pennant that features a single symbol that then covers 2x2 or 3x3 spaces on the reels. Finally, comes the Ave Caesar feature where players are offered a pick ‘em choice by Caesar, he offers them six scrolls and these could award either five of a kind, a big win or any one of the bonus games.
The Centurion Maximus feature sees the army leader march his legionnaires across the reels. As they pass through, they release a pennant featuring one symbol which covers 2x2 or 3x3 spaces on the reels. Finally, you could trigger the Ave Caesar feature, where Caesar offers a pick 'em choice of six scrolls. These could award a five-of-a-kind win, a big win or one of the four bonus games. There is also a gamble option at the end of any win. Ave Caesar the slot has been created with the modern audience in mind and is fully optimized for play on all devices however with the vast animation it favours the larger screen and whatever device players choose will need to have decent processing power. With wilds, extra spins or instant wins and so much more on offer this is sure to fast become one of the top titles for the developers at Leander Games.
