As a genuine land casino and hotel brand of many years’ standing, the Vegas-style glitz that comes with Caesars
’ online offering has considerably more credibility than that of its competitors. They also have a far better idea of what makes gamers really tick as well, so the games are exceptionally well-chosen.
As one of the original and best-known land casino brands in the world, it makes sense for Caesars to reflect their gaming floor heritage in the way they present their website -, and they’ve done a good job: Their logo, font and overall design all blend in with the more functional aspects of the site well, but are highly distinctive and instantly recognisable, so you feel from outset that you’re dealing with an outfit that’s a genuine part of Vegas history rather than an online-only business.
They’ve also differentiated themselves from more run-of-the-mill online casinos by using a bespoke installation for their slots games rather than signing all their gaming space over to just one of the big software houses:Reputation
Caesars have been around since almost the very beginning of the Vegas Strip, and consequently know what they’re doing. With giant casino hotel complexes in Vegas and Atlantic City they’ve got too much to lose by operating a low-grade cashout service, and are too well-heeled to have to mess you around when it comes to getting paid. Anecdotal evidence on user forums backs this up, so you don’t need to worry at all about playing here. Games
The games at Caesars are provided by 888, Gamesys and IGT, making for a totally unique combination. They’re all offered via the same grid for easy access, and all come with demo play if required.
There are around 30 slots in total - Caesars have gone for quality over quantity – and we couldn’t find any dead wood in their selection at all.
Of particular interest are IGT’s TV show-based games: There’s a blinding tribute to Deal or No Deal with some imaginative feature play and a rousing soundtrack based on the show’s original music; or if you’re a talent show fan there’s X Factor: Steps to Stardom, taking you on a journey to the top of the music industry via a triple multiplier feature that’s enhanced by a bonus spins multiplier for some truly epic payouts.
There are also 4 progressive jackpot games at Caesars, and these can all be played in demo mode as well. The latest one is particularly good: Wonderland is broadly-based on Alice’s adventures, and comes with a suitably oddball set of characters, a wondrously eerie soundtrack and a particularly apt opening door-style bonus game. The jackpot had risen to over £133,000 whilst we played, which puts it well into the big league in comparison to some of the better-known progressive slot payouts.
However, the one you really must try is the newest: Valley of the Kings is a great advert for Caesars, as ancient Egypt has inspired more slot games than any other subject. Every major slot manufacturer has a game based on this theme, and it consequently serves well as a yardstick. This take on the land of pharaohs, curses and legendary rulers beats its competitors hands down, initially because it looks so impressive with a beautifully-rendered, dark beige parchment background showcasing some finely-detailed items of treasure from the burial chambers of Egypt’s ruling elite. However, the gameplay matches the visuals, with up to 10 free spins on offer courtesy of the sarcophagus symbol that expands to its full length in wild mode to bring you endless wins.
