Seek the Legendary Empire Fortune
Empire Fortune is a 3-row, 5-reel, 20-fixed payline, Global Progressive Jackpot slot. Its pool is shared with Yggdrasil’s popular Joker Millions Progressive slot. Just this past July (2016), Joker Millions awarded a payout of €2.9 million off a €1.25 Bet. Empire Fortune now shares that millionaire making potential. Its shiny, gemstone symbols glisten in a frame of solid gold. The reels are set against a background depicting a treasure trove complete with golden coins littering the marble floor. The background music consists of orchestra instrumentals.
Yggdrasil online slots give players the option to set values for Total Bet, Win and Balance to either coins or cash. To choose a Total Cash Bet ranging from 20p – £100 at Vera&John, players must adjust the Coin Value (0.01 – 5.00). If ‘coin view’ is selected, the Total Bet remains fixed at 20 coins. Empire Fortune’s Paytable lists potential wins in fixed coin values only. Coin Wins are displayed across the center of the screen and Cash Wins are displayed in the ‘win box.’
Empire Fortune uses 10 glistening symbols consisting of gems and polished stones. There are 2 special symbols including a Joker Free Spin Scatter and Bonus symbol. The Joker triggers a round of Free Spins with the appearance of at least 3 symbols. The Bonus symbol triggers the Wheel of Fortune. Empire Fortune has 8 regular symbols. Listed in order of highest to lowest value, they include: Ruby, Amethyst, Emerald, Sapphire, Heart, Spade, Clover and Diamond.
Gameplay is left to right only with the exception of the Scatters. Get 3+ of any Empire Fortune regular symbol (starting from the leftmost reel) to win cash or get 3+ of any special symbol to trigger a Bonus Feature. To profit along a single payline, get 3+ Hearts – Rubies to win at least 1.25x the Total Bet, or get 4+ of any regular symbol to win at least 3x the Total Bet.
The highest paying regular symbol of this online slot is the Ruby which awards a coin pay of (2500, 350, 50). This gives Empire Fortune the potential to award up to 125x the Total Bet for a 5 of a kind match. That amounts to £12,500 at Vera&John online casino. The 2nd highest paying symbol is the Amethyst which awards (2.000, 300, 45). It has the potential to grant up to 100x the Total Bet for a 5 of a kind match amounting to £10.000 at V&J.
Yggdrasil slots generally offer an Autoplay ranging from 10 – infinity consecutive spins. It can be set to automatically stop on a Jackpot win or manually set values: cash increase/decrease or minimum win. Empire Fortune Game Settings include: set speed from tortoise slow to rabbit fast, adjust volume, set coin or cash values and set the spacebar to spin.
