Caesar’s Empire is an online slot game designed by RTG, one of the most popular online slot providers for US players. Part of the Real Series, this title is a twenty-payline and five reel slot offering bets in multiple denominations with a max payout of 7,500 credits and an available (and random) progressive top prize.
Caesar’s Empire is one of the most talked-about, reviewed, and popular of all of RTG’s slots. The game includes chances for free spins and the typical Real Series large range of wager sizes.
The theme, if it’s not obvious from the title of the game, is the Roman Empire, specifically the reign of the Caesar Empire. Thus the symbols are all the trappings of the Roman Empire, with laurel crowns, gladiators, and antique weapons used alongside the standard RTG numbers and other symbols.
The wild symbol used in RTG’s Caesar’s Empire is, naturally, the Caesar symbol. He substitutes for all other symbols (except the scatter, described below) to form winning combos, and he triples the wins that he completes as well. Hail Caesar for that.
The scatter symbol is of the ancient Coliseum of Rome – this symbol activates the bonus round for combinations of the scatter and wild symbols. This symbol also acts as a multiplier for lesser combos of symbols.

Here, Caesar’s Empire follows the Real Series mold like a script. For this title, the available denominations are: $0.01 – $0.10, $0.25, $0.50, $1, $2, and $5 per line. Since players must bet on all twenty lines, the available range of wagers is between $0.20 and $100. Not the biggest variety of any RTG game, but not bad, either.
Unfortunately, I ran into the same problem searching for this game’s theoretical payout percentage that I always run into with RTG titles. The information simply isn’t available online. That’s not a big problem – RTG isn’t required by law to release that information – but it means I can’t give you a specific set of expectations about how much it costs to play this game.
We know that RTG’s Real Series titles hover in the 96% payout percentage neighborhood. At that assumed rate, a player placing a $1-per-spin bet (and seeing 600 outcomes per hour) should only expect losses of $20 or so on a total outlay of $600. That’s not bad for an hour of entertainment, but it’s not the best percentage in the RTG library, either.
Most likely, the progressive jackpot that exists for this title means it is more like 95%, but since we can’t be sure, it’s safe to say that this game offers average volatility.
This includes a progressive prize. Outside of that payday, the largest payout available is worth 7,500 credits. To win that prize, players need to line up one Caesar and 4 Cleopatra symbols on one of the game’s paylines. The next-largest jackpots are also based on the Caesar-Cleopatra combos, with prizes of 2,500 and 1,500 credits available for different numbers of symbol combos.
There is no real bonus round for this RTG Real Series online slot, but a Free Spins feature can be triggered (and endlessly re-triggered) by landing one or more wild symbols and a scatter symbol on active lines. Ten free spins are automatically handed out, with additional free spins in multiples of five available during the free spins feature game. As an added bonus, all prizes won during free spins are automatically doubled.
RTG is a beast in the sense that tons of online casinos use their software. Since online casinos are moving mobile more and more these days, it makes sense that RTG knows how to port a slot game for mobile displays. The end-result is a game that’s about the same as the traditional Web version. This is a totally average mobile game. I do like that the progressive prize is available even on some of the network’s mobile apps and sites. Outside of that, I don’t see any reason a player would want to choose the mobile game outside of the convenience factor.
As I knew this was an RTG title, I was expecting to be a little disappointed. Maybe it’s the ancient Roman theme, maybe it’s the fact that during my free-play session I won a 1,000 coin payout, but I liked this little game. It doesn’t have a high replay value, but it’s as good a Real Series slot as any.
