It’s not very often that we see progressive jackpot slots from Yggdrasil Gaming. However, this offering, known as Empire Fortune, is one of a kind. If you have ever had the desire to own your own vast treasure trove, this game will give you the chance. It’s a global progressive jackpot, as we said, featuring a jackpot wheel, free spin mode and hold options. However, more about these later on. It obviously includes the developer’s full range of high quality graphics and stunning game play. The reels of the game have a vast selection of golds and treasures on display around them. And this is basically the overall theme of the game – the fortune that you can amass in your empire.
Build Your Empire from the Ground Up!
Whenever you access the game, you’ll find five reels and three rows are visible on display. This should provide a fairly standard and familiar layout to gamers. It is upon the reels that you will find the game’s various different icons. These exist in the form of the four different playing card symbols firstly. So, you’ll see the blue diamond icon, the green club, the purple spade and the red heart. Then, joining these are four gemstones in the same four colours, but different shapes. It is these eight different icons that make up the standard paying offerings in the base game.
As well as all of this, Empire Fortune also offers up 20 separate pay lines to players. You are not able to alter these in any way, but you do have the chance to change your wager per round. This is done by changing the coin value between its minimum of £0.01 and its maximum of £5 per line. Therefore, you’re able to place a maximum overall wager of £100 per spin. You can instantly add this amount with the ‘Max Bet’ button. The game also features an ‘Autoplay’ button as well. This allows you the chance to spin the reels up to 1,000 consecutive times at the same bet level.
See If You Can Grab That Jackpot Amount!
It’s not only the progressive jackpot that is one of the special features of this game. It offers up so much more to you. The first of these is the game’s ‘Hold Feature’. This becomes active whenever two Bonus and/or Free Spin icons come into view on the reels. This sees the reels with those symbols on them held in place for the next spin. Changing your coin value will release the reels from this hold, so be wary of doing this. During the free spin mode, the Hold Feature will also award you with an additional free spin.
And speaking of the free spins mode, this can be brought into play with the free spin icon. It’s the joker symbol that provides this round and you will need to spin three or more of them into view. They do work as a scatter icon, so they can show up in any location on the reels to trigger this. Three of them will give a total of 10 free spins with a two times multiplier. Four scatters provide 20 free spins with a multiplier of times four. And finally, five scatter symbols award you with 30 free spins, plus a multiplier of times 10.
Of course, you can’t forget about the game’s Jackpot Wheel, which looks like a gemstone-encrusted cake! There are three tiers to the “cake”, with each different tier offering its own set of prizes. It’s the bonus icon which will trigger the jackpot round. Three bonus symbols provide a spin of the bottom tier, four will award a spin on the middle tier and five provide a spin on the top tier. There are three different jackpots which can be won in this round, each of which can be seen at the top of the game screen. Depending upon the tier you’re spinning, if you land the representative icon of the jackpot in the middle, you will win it. If you don’t win one of the progressives, there are five other prizes available. These are the two different coin win symbols, a set amount of free spins, a mystery win between 250 and 5,000 coins. And finally, there’s the fireworks feature, which awards three, six or 12 rockets. Each of these rockets will land on a wheel prize.
The Final Word
We can’t help but love this game. And why wouldn’t we? It’s brought to you by Yggdrasil Gaming! So, not only does it have stellar graphics and game play, but it incorporates a great choice of specialities alongside. Furthermore, the fact that there are an impressive set of jackpots available to you is yet another perk to playing.
