Review of Empire Fortune Slot
The Empire Fortune is a 5 reel, 20 line slot game and the big advantage of this game is the progressive jackpot, big enough to make someone a millionaire. Two smaller progressive jackpots are available alongside it. Feature-wise, you can expect to get:
- Hold Feature
- Free Spins with up to 10x multipliers
- Scatter symbols
- Jackpot Wheel feature
- Mystery Wins
Theme & Graphics
The game’s theme seems to be about a kingdom’s riches, nothing else. The empire’s fortune materializes in the background image, with a castle’s interior filled with riches and in better quality graphics than the symbols are. Speaking of the symbols, you see these on the reels and in the paytable section, showing you images of card suits for the ones that pay least, of jewellery set in gold for the next ones, and then with jokers or Faberge eggs for feature triggers.
It’s going to be the usual high-end design that Yggdrasil always delivers, but they didn’t choose the most interesting symbols for it.
Betting & Jackpots
As a player of slot machines from this developer, you can generally expect to find fixed lines to wager on, 20 of them in this particular case. With line-bets varying between $0.01 and $5, you get a full range for your bets between $0.20 and $100. It’s enough to let penny slot players and high-rollers alike play it.
Moving on to the payouts available, this is where Empire Fortune truly shines and stays true to its name. First of all, we have the three jackpots that are delivered via the Jackpot Wheel, called Empire, Diamond and Golden, the best one with a value of over $1 million if you’re lucky.
The regular jackpot goes to 2,500x, or up to $12,500 during the paid spins. Big enough multipliers are available that you could make the jump to $125,000 with that jackpot, though only during free spins.
The game’s features will revolve around its bonus game (Jackpot Wheel) and the free spins. You get scatter symbols only in the game, and generally, you need at least three matching ones in order to trigger anything.
Should you get just two symbols with scatter abilities, then you get another chance for the third one through the Hold feature. Basically, the reels which have the two scatters are held and during the next spin, you might get the last one you need to trigger a feature.
In the case of the free spins, the scatter’s image will show you the Joker that appears to get the main role here. Landing 3 will give you 10 free spins with a 2x multiplier, while 4 scatters trigger 20 spins with 4x multipliers, and 5 symbols award 30 spins where the multiplier is set to 10x. Don’t expect for the free spins to easily come your way, the multipliers look too good for that to happen, but when they do, the game can be immensely profitable.
As for the bonus game, the one that awards progressive jackpots, it is going to be reached through 3 to 5 scattered Faberge Eggs. Depending on how many you get, you can win a spin of the Jackpot Wheel’s bottom, middle or top level. Here you can trigger one of the jackpots, one of the three variants of free spins, wins with re-spins, instant wins of up to 2,500 coins, mystery wins of up to 5,000 coins or fireworks.
Empire Fortune has one thing that you’re not going to find easily in another Yggdrasil Gaming slot, and that’s a huge progressive jackpot for you to sink your teeth into. There are also complex features for you to trigger, with big multipliers that will improve regular wins.
