Flashy and regal prizes can be yours with Empire Fortune
If you were expecting a war themed slot, you are in for a bit of a surprise. Empire Fortune is certainly not that.
Instead, this new Yggdrasil developed video slot is destined to be themed on jewels, diamonds, riches, rings and every other sort of regal and precious jewellry item you can think of. The slot’s prizes are just as precious as stones in the theme of this slot, you know, since there are three progressive jackpots to be won.
What? An Yggdrasil slot with a major, multi-tier progressive jackpot. Yes, and the progressive jackpot setup is three-pronged, actually. There are Golden, Diamond, and Empire-sized jackpots up for grabs, and these can range from a couple of hundred dollars, up to several hundred thousand dollars in size.
In most other regards, Yggdrasil’s slot is an action-packed game, too. There are bonuses all over the shop for you to claim – especially if you don’t manage to land a progressive jackpot cash prize. However, players should be warned. This slot’s theme and basic gameplay do tend to be a little bit on the boring side.
What we love
Empire Fortune is jam-packed with bonuses. You will find cash prizes all over the shop, as well as big money multipliers, free spins, and a even a rocket themed bonus which can see you get a second crack at landing a progressive, just in case you missed it the first time around.
The free spins bonus is pretty decent, too, with up to 30 free spins playable with a multiplier worth up to 10x present. Betting is as cheap as chips, as we’ve said.
Minimum stake bets start out at $0.20 per spin, so the entry level wager for this game is pretty cheap. Even a maximum wager will only set you back $100 a go, which is peanuts, really, given that there are three mega-money progressives for you to snap up.
What we do not like
There are elements of Empire Fortune which are a bit fiddly, and others which are downright boring. The basic theme of the game is a little underdeveloped, and the imagery is predictable and dull. You will also find that unless you are regularly triggering features, this slot can near enough put you to sleep.
Yggdrasil has pumped this slot full of features to make sure that this doesn’t happen, but they have forgotten one critical thing when doing so. You need to be able to trigger those features at least somewhat regularly in order for them to be of any use.
For the progressive jackpots alone, you may be keen to give Empire Fortune a run for its money. There are good and decent prizes, but it will certainly not be an easy ride to trigger the bonus for those prizes.
Even if you do, you’re more than likely to end up with a consolation prize. The only way to find out is to give the slot a run for its money, though.
