Join Julius Caesar and Cleopatra with Stacked Symbols and Free Spins
The relationship between Julius Caesar and Cleopatra was one of the most famous in history. A liaison based on both passion and politics, the entwining of the Roman and Egyptian empires, which would eventually see Egypt become a province of the Roman Empire after Cleopatra’s death. Both Julius Caesar and Cleopatra appear as full-length symbols on the reels.
Unusually, they both acts as scatter symbols and wilds too, making them easily the most powerful symbols in the game (much like in real life). On the reels you’ll also find a mix of Roman and Egyptian symbols, such as the coliseum, the pyramids and a sphinx.
Rome and Egypt is a slot that will certainly appeal to history buffs, or those who enjoy a little romance, offering the following range of features:

To enter the free spins bonus feature, you’ll need to hit either Cleopatra or Julius Caesar or a combination of both on at least the first two reels from left to right.
With up to 50 free spins to be won, this is a feature well worth winning. You also have the added bonus that any win during the feature round will be doubled. You can also retrigger the feature at any time, with the number of spins won simply added to the existing total.
Both the Julius Caesar and Cleopatra symbols are stacked three high. Each acts as a wild symbol and will substitute for any other symbol on the reels. Land five images of Caesar in a row and you’ll win 500 coins, while the same goes for Cleopatra. A combination of the two leaders across a win line will also pay you 250 coins.
Rome and Egypt plays out on a 5×4 reel configuration. The game has a default setting of 40 win-lines, although players do have the option of playing any number of win-lines up to 40. This makes the game ideal for players with all levels of bankroll.
Aside from the wilds, the Roman coliseum is the highest paying symbol of the game, worth 150 coins for the maximum five. The pyramids pay 125 coins, while a Roman temple and the sphinx are each worth 100 coins. The remaining symbols include Caesar’s laurel wreath, headwear worn by Cleopatra and fish and fruit which might be served up at a lavish ceremony.
You can control the spins in two ways. The ‘Classic’ panel allows you to set up in the usual way, where you’ll set the number of win-lines and the coin value. The ‘Quickbet’ panel allows you to simply click a box with a total stake to spin, with the ability to scroll along the boxes to increase the stake.
The backdrop to this original themed game from WMS displays a distinct mix of the Roman and the Egyptian. The left-hand side displays a stone wall with ancient hieroglyphics representing the Egyptians, while the right-hand side features mosaics representing the Romans.
The symbols themselves are displayed on a marble background and give the game a real historical feel. There is little doubt that the oversized Julius Caesar and Cleopatra symbols are the focal point of the slot. The soundtrack to the game, while enjoyable, is a generic one, where sounds relating to the theme might have improved the game further.
Rome and Egypt is an enjoyable and somewhat original game. To have two wilds is unusual, but to make them both bonus symbols makes them all powerful in the game. I guess Julius Caesar and Cleopatra wouldn’t have it any other way. The free spins feature is the highlight of the game, with a good number of spins to be won, as well as that 2x multiplier doubling any win. This is worth a spin in any era.
