All the roads are paved with gold in Nextgen’s Glorious Empire online slot. Based on the glorious Roman Empire, the slot features symbols and insignia from the greatest army of all times. In trademark Nextgen style, Glorious Empire looks amazing, with stunning graphics and animations and a matching soundtrack.
Glorious Empire’s RTP is 96.93%. We found the slot to be of medium to high variance and quite generous as well – it offers a max possible win of 40,000 coins. The full glory of the Roman Empire can be found behind the reels, with decorated columns and typical ancient Roman architecture in the distance. The epic soundtrack sets the tone perfectly, creating a unique atmosphere not unlike in a Hollywood blockbuster based on the same theme.
Playable on all mobile devices, Indian players can expect frequent small wins in the base game and bigger payouts during the bonus round. Although it doesn’t really reinvent the game, the gorgeous graphics and fun gameplay make the Glorious Empire online slot worth your time and effort.
Glorious Empire is a 5 reel slot with 40 fixed paylines. This means that all players get the max number of ways to win on each spin of the reels. When it comes to the coin sizes, they vary from €0.01 to €10 per payline. The maximum bet you can place is €500 per spin.
The gameplay is pretty simple. Lettered card suit symbols appear on the reels and are the game’s low-paying symbols. Special symbols such as a Roman chariot, helmet, Pegasus, Roman soldier, and goddess offer far more enticing payouts. Land 5 goddesses on a payline to earn 500 coins or five Roman soldiers for a prize worth 150.
A shield with a lion is the game’s wild and does what all wilds do – it replaces all symbols except the scatter. The wild is pretty lucrative as well. If you’re lucky enough to land 5, you’ll earn 250 coins. Coming in the form of an ancient Roman temple, five scatter will give you 4,000 coins. Scatter wins pay in any direction and are multiplied by the total bet, so you can earn a pretty hefty prize.
You can double any win with the Gamble feature, but you can also lose it all. If you’re a newbie in the world of online slots, we suggest staying away from it. It might look like a great option, but it’s nonetheless risky.
Whenever 3 or more scatters appear on the reels, you’ll get 7, 10 or 15 free games (for 3, 4, and 5 scattered temples respectively). All the free spins will be played at your current bet and are retrigerrable. They also come with a twist – any wild that appears on the reels during the free games will be held in place. In this way, you can bet that there will be some pretty enticing winning combos.
If you’re lucky enough to retrigger the free spins, you can earn a more-than-solid amount of coins.
The Glorious Empire slot is a gorgeous slot with solid winning potential you’re going to fall in love with. It’s a perfect depiction of all the glory of the famous ancient Roman Empire. The dramatic soundtrack lifts the atmosphere up while you spin the reels for a prize worth several hundred times your stake.
The game seems to be handing out small wins frequently. You can expect bigger wins in the bonus round if you’re lucky to land many wilds. Overall, we quite liked what Glorious Empire has to offer, and we have no doubt you’ll like it too.
