Many online slots choose to focus on royalty and long-lost Emperors, so Red Tiger Gaming has gone for something slightly different with Golden Tsar. The Tsars were the rulers of pre-revolutionary Russia, and they were famous for their lavish lifestyle and exquisite surroundings.
Red Tiger Gaming has developed a slot that presents players with the chance to become rich themselves. Golden Tsar has a maximum payout of 1,380x a player’s stake, which, while not making you as rich as a Tsar, is still not to be scoffed at.
Graphics & Theme
Few slots have ever managed to embrace their name quite like Golden Tsar. The slot is one of the most elegant and sophisticated on the market, really embracing both parts of its name.
The game is set inside a grand ballroom, with two bright golden candelabras sitting to the left and the right of the reels. The reels themselves are bordered in gold, with intricate design features giving it a sophisticated edge.
The game’s symbols all tie into the theme. The standard 10-A poker symbols are in a Cyrillic style, which gives the game an authentic Russian feel. The higher paying symbols in the game are a Prince, a Princess, the Tsar himself, and his wife, the Tsarina. These characters all play a vital role in the game and are essential components for the game’s special features.
The game also has a very grand soundtrack which helps add to the regal feel. The bonus symbols also glimmer with gold whenever players manage to land them.
Red Tiger often put a range of special features in their game, and Golden Tsar is no different. The game features a good selection of bonus rounds that can help you get your hands on some of the Tsar’s riches.
The main feature on the game is the expanding symbols. All four members of the Tsar’s family are located above the game reels, with four meters around them. Whenever a big win occurs, the respective meter fills up a little bit. Once a meter is full, the family member then becomes a 1×4 symbol on the reels. These super symbols pay from any position on all win lines, which can lead to some huge wins.
The second main bonus that is available is the Tsar free spins. These are triggered whenever players manage to land three or more of the golden egg scatter symbols on the reels. For each egg that has landed on the reels, players are rewarded three free spins. The maximum that can be landed is six.
When the free spins are triggered, one of the premium symbol meters is also filled for the duration of the round as well. During the free spins, you can also fill the other meters still, which means you can have all four full during the free spins. This can lead to some huge wins.
Game How to Play
The Tsars have made it nice and easy for players to attempt to win their gold. To get started, players must first select their stakes using the +/- button at the bottom of the screen. The minimum amount that a player can wager on one spin is £0.10, while the maximum amount is £40.
The game has a fairly standard set-up. It has six reels and a total of 30 pay lines. The RTP for the game is a reasonably average 95.77%. The game does have high volatility though, which could turn some players away.
To check the value of the symbols, players can use the paytable at any time. The slot also comes with an auto-play feature which players can use when they want to put their feet up and let the game do the heavy lifting.
Golden Tsar on Mobile
The Golden Tsar has been adapted to work on a range of different mobile devices, including both phones and tablets. The slot will work on both Android and iOS operating systems and will be available in several online casino apps.
