Caligula is a Roman-themed online slot coming out of the ever-growing suite of real money games designed by GameArt. In the US GameArt is one a popular up and coming online slot designer designing desktop and mobile friendly slots. This slot is as easy as they come in terms of gameplay. There is a free spin feature round where players have the chance to net big wins with multipliers, plus a gamble option to double up in a card game with an even 50/50 chance of winning.
Caligula online slot focuses on a Roman theme centered around Gaius Julius Caesar Germanicus; once a Roman emperor. The 3D design is very basic allowing reel spins to churn out very smoothly on any device.
Some simple animations have been programmed into the slot; such as Julius Caesar the wild symbol completing wins and a ‘big win’ scene. When the wild is involved in a winning combination the symbol makes a celebratory animated gesture. The only other semi-animation on the slot is when you land a big win and multiple coins will start ejecting into the air.
There is not much in the way of sound effects because GameArt is not a slot developer renowned for being concerned with this element of slot design. The developer’s main aim is to provide smooth gameplay, simple animations, 3D graphics, and some arcade style sounds; while, the gameplay is left to do all the talking.
As with many GameArt slots, Caligula is the perfect slot for mobile play. With its low demand for graphical resources, almost any mobile device will be able to handle this slot with no lag or interference.
