Players can start by choosing the value of their coins. These can range from 0.01 up to 0.05. Players can also choose how many coins they wish to stake per line, with up to 5 possible. Paylines are adjustable too, and this gives the slot minimum and maximum wagers of 0.01 per line, per spin; and 7.50 per spin, respectively. In short, Great Czar is dirt cheap to play.
Great Czar uses a shield as its wild icon. This shield wild can replace all other symbols, barring the scatter and bonus icon. One symbol represents both scatters and bonus icons. If the player locates the crown icon, three, four or five times in any position on the reels, then they will trigger the Imperial Crown free spins round. In this bonus, players can choose from a number of objects, in order to accumulate free spins and/or multipliers to play this bonus with. The special features are phenomenal in this slot, but they will suffice in most cases.
