Released back in the summer of 2008 on Spin Palace, Days of the Tsar is a Microgaming pokie that hails back to the day of Imperial Russia, a grand, bold pokie with a few interesting features thrown in for good measure.
Days of the Tsar is a 5 reel and 25 payline pokie that has a grand aesthetic, with all of the royal offerings of imperial Russia. As well as the gold trim surrounding the game reels, Days of the Tsar also has symbols synonymous with Russian royalty, including Faberge eggs and royal palaces.
The wild is the symbol you need to look out for the most. In the shape of the King, this symbol returns an impressive 10,000 coins, which is a good 5x more than the second highest paying symbol, the queen.
Days of the Tsar also has a gamble feature, and one that is common on many early Microgaming pokies. Here you can gamble on the turn of a card, choosing to go double or nothing with the color of the card, or to take a stab at getting a 4x return by predicting the suit.
Days of the Tsar’s maximum payout works out at a total of $2,500 if you place the maximum bet of $0.25 per coin. The minimum bet, on the other hand, is $0.01 per coin.
The Faberge egg symbol is the scatter symbol, and you need at least three of these to trigger the free spins feature on Days of the Tsar. You will be given a random number of free spins, typically more than 8, and you usually get a decent return on average.
Days of the Tsar is a royal pokie from the kings of gambling, and while it is a little lacking in places, you can’t ignore the huge wild, the free spins feature and the addition of a gamble feature. All of which make Days of the Tsar a worthwhile title.
