Ah, The Great Czar, a game that I first played some years ago, when Microgaming games still were a big great jinx for me! None of the games were good to me, none gave me any good wins, all of them only knew how to eat up my credits, each and every time I played them. Not until early this year though, when I finally broke that jinx, and Microgaming games have suddenly and miraculously became better for me! Perhaps it was nothing more than mere superstitions and unfounded beliefs, that jinx thing, but for me, it was real. Some things in life just cannot be logically explained or comprehended, and this jinx thing is one of them!

The Great Czar is one of so many Microgaming games that I had revisited and replayed after many years of lapse, purely because the jinx was gone, and I do believe that those games owed me something in return! Hahaha. But believe it or not, those games are actually playing much better now than before! This Czar game is one of them, although I still couldn't get any of those nice big wins. But then again, I am still hesitant to take a big risk at choosing that 1 free spin with a 15x multiplier to try and get a really big win. I still didn't dare to even take up that 10x multiplier option because of the too few free spins that go along with it. I kept taking the 10 free spins with a 3x multiplier on so many occasions already! Hmm, maybe one fine day I will! Hehehe.

The Great Czar plays with 30 paylines, not selectable unfortunately, which I would have greatly preferred. It's an old game, but looking quite contemporary, mainly due to its colourful presentation using vibrant colours. The Shield is the non-paying Wild symbol, and the Crown is the Scatter symbol, paying 150x the total bet for getting 5 of them. Not a lot to cover for the non-paying Wild symbol. Getting 3 or more of these Crowns award the 'Imperial Crown Free Spins Bonus' game, whereby 8 options of free spins and multipliers are given, from a very risky 1 free spin with a 15x multiplier, up to 20 free spins with a 1x multiplier. More free spins cannot be retriggered, so this bit sucks a bit!

During play, both in the base game and during the free spins, the Czar symbol is fully stacked on all reels, but the other symbols are not stacked at all. So, the only possibility of getting all same symbols is with the Czar, which would pay 500x the total bet amount. Multiply that 500x with a chosen multiplier of say 5x, that would give a huge win of 2500x. Would it be possible to win all 15 Czar symbols with the 10x or 15x multiplier? I really really doubt it! Hahaha. Would be really fantastic if it is possible though! Nevertheless, The Great Czar is a good and interesting game to play, but be aware that those 100x and above wins can be damn difficult to get, to say the very least! Hehehe.

Peter ruled the Tsardom of Russia until his death, jointly ruling with his elder half-brother, Ivan V. Through a number of successful wars, he expanded the Tsardom into a much larger empire that became a major European power. He led a cultural revolution that replaced some of the traditionalist and medieval social and political systems with ones that were modern, scientific, westernized, and based on The Enlightenment. Peter's reforms made a lasting impact on Russia and many institutions of Russian government trace their origins to his reign.

Gold color is rather dominating in this slot theme, which is expected, to reflect the Golden Era of the Russian empire. This 5-reels 30-pay lines game is an oldie from Microgaming which you can play from 0.30 cents bet per spin. I have played this game only once and I didn’t make any progress with my session. Whatever I won, it didn’t exceed over x10 my bet size and I didn’t even trigger any Free Spins game which could boost my balance. I’ve never heard of any active member making any wins on this game either.

The highest paying symbol is Czar Peter, which pays 500 coins for 5 of a kind. It can come stacked on all reels, providing more and better chances to make some nice wins here. The ‘Imperial Crown’ Free Spins game is triggered if you manage to collect 3 or more Scatters. Before playing the Free Spins game, you need to choose the number of free spins and its multiplier. Choose from 30 free spins with a 1x multiplier, 15 free spins with a 2x multiplier, 5 free spins with a 6x multiplier, or 2 free spins with a 15x multiplier. Well, mostly I would choose the option with the highest multiplier, but in this video slot, I would choose the 30 free spins because the chances of wins are pretty low when you have only 2 free spins.

I am not upset over its low pay table because this old game isn’t fun to play at all and there is nothing for me to regret. At the end of the day, a poor pay table is something we are used to hearing about whenever we talk about Microgaming games.

The Great Czar is nice themed video slot with 5 reels and 30 active pay lines. It is powered by Microgaming software provider. I played this video slot some months ago and I liked the feature into this game.

The base game is ok, while I was playing it I had some decent winnings even during base game. The wild symbols appears quite often, but the payouts are not so high as I expected. Other symbols should pay out more, well this was my wish while I was playing it.

When you get three or more scatter symbols on the reels the free spins feature start. You have to pick out how many number of free games you want with different multiplier. I noticed that there is also only one free spins with huge x30 multiplier. If someone like to risk with high multipliers, maybe this game could be perfect for this purpose. Well that time I selected around 6 free spins with x5 multiplier and the results were not so good. I never won more than x20 bet from free spins.

I think I could play this game in near future. But I can not say 100%. Mostly because there are so many better games than this one. I had some decent winnings from it, but later I just closed it and played some other games. The design is not so good, this video slot looks old. And I think it is old.

Otherwise I like free spins feature where you can choose whatever you like. More number of free spins or maybe better, higher multipliers with less numbers of free games. I like that this feature is set in that way, so every player can select what he/she like.

I will rate this game with 7 stars. I missed some bonus game here, it is video slot with 30 paylines so I expected bonus game too.
