Empire Fortune Slot from Yggdrasil Gaming is a triple-jackpot slot first released in 2016. It’s an extravagant, over-the-top affair, packed with treasure, jewels and gold. Expect a standard 5×3 format with elaborately decorated reels and the action happening in a sort of gold-filled ballroom.
Load up the game and see a wall of precious stones before you. Can you unlock the game’s riches?
How to play
The menu bar, where you choose your bets, is as ornate as the reels. There’s a huge betting range in Empire Fortune Slot, from a mere 10p to a high-rolling £100 a spin, with some 5.5% of each bet going towards the Empire jackpot, plus an extra 1.8% boosts the other two jackpots. As you’d expect, the game is fully mobile-friendly.
Symbols look expensive, too, and include the low-paying card suits designed to have the appearance of precious stones. The four higher payers are also gems but are encased in gold and shinier. You’ll find them in red, green, purple and blue, with red being the most lucrative at 125x stake for five in a row.
Three matches or more will unlock the treasure chest.
Empire Fortune Slot special features
Empire Fortune Slot doesn’t have any Wild symbols. Instead, there are two Scatters, one a Joker and the other a bonus icon. Both trigger the bonus features that form the most exciting part of this game.
This is a base-game perk. Land two free spins or bonus icons and spend 3x stake to fix them in place for a further spin. Use it just once per spin, although if a pair of bonus or free spins icons land while you’re already holding two of them, you can hold all four.
Launch this is standard fashion with at least three of the Joker Scatters, as follows:
- Three Scatters – 10 free spins + 2x multiplier
- Four Scatters – 20 free spins + 4x multiplier
- Five Scatters – 30 free spins + 10x multiplier
Jackpot Wheel feature
Three or more bonus symbols wherever you like on the reels to trigger this. The wheel is an extravagant affair that’s tiered to look like a wedding cake, and it has a hat-trick of levels.
Essentially, each level is stacked with goodies in the form of prize icons and the shiny red gem on top is effectively the icing on the cake!
Spin the wheel’s lower level to kick off with. Should it land on a prize symbol, that reward is yours. Land on an arrow and you’re sent to the level above, and its bigger booty.
Yggdrasil says no slots feature such a packed bonus wheel. And it’s true that there are plenty of prizes here, the jackpots included. Here’s what you could win:
- Coin wins of up to 5,000 coins, sometimes with a respin
- Cash/mystery prizes worth up to 500x stake
- 10 – 30 free spins plus a 2x – 10x multiplier
- Fireworks feature in which up to a dozen rockets blast off, landing on other prizes, which you get to keep
- Empire (Ultra), Diamond (Medium) and Gold (Mini) jackpots, all of which are progressive
Play for these as described above. Riches are shared across the whole of Yggdrasil’s casino network since this is a global jackpot slot. Indeed, it shares a jackpot with sibling game Joker Millions. So with thousands paying in all the time, the total pot can reach massive proportions.
Return to Player (RTP)
Return to Player or RTP is not the most amazing you’ll find anywhere, at 94.3%, but remember that progressive jackpot. With medium-to-high volatility, hit frequency is respectably above one in five at 23.3%.
There’s a fair bit going on in this game, with the progressive jackpot always the main draw, capable of pulling incredible, life-changing wins out of the hat.
Empire Fortune Slot can also be good for newbies, despite it being a ‘busy’ game, and there’s potential to convert small stakes into serious wins. Try it out in free mode first of all.
