Emperor’s Garden is an online slot game by software provider NextGen Gaming. The theme of this game is a popular one, and it comes with a set of truly remarkable quality graphics. The visuals are all very traditional, meaning you have plenty of classic Asian imagery: for example, there are lotus flowers, Chinese guardian dog statues, Koi fish, bonsai trees and more. Alongside them you will also notice the lower value playing card symbols that are stunningly stylized to match the theme. In the backdrop, as the title will already have hinted, you can make out a beautiful garden. There are lilies floating on the surface of a decorative pond, and moss growing on the stones surrounding it. Be sure to also keep your sound on for the soothing backing track.
As for the layout in Emperor’s Garden, it features your regular 5 reel by 3 row grid and it comes with a total number of 25 paylines which you are also free to regulate as per your own wishes. The lowest you can set the paylines to is 1, and this affects the betting range accordingly. Penny players will be pleased to know that they can play at the minimum bet of only 1p per spin, however, the maximum amount doesn’t venture too far and is at the £25 per spin mark.
Look out for the Garden symbol, as it is Wild on these reels. It has the capacity to substitute for any of the regular symbols on these reels, and this means it can help you create winning combos, and therefore boost your winnings. However, the Wild doesn’t substitute for the game’s Scatter, and in addition to that, it doesn’t offer any payouts of its own.
What’s more, the Wild can only land on the middle reels 2, 3 and 4, and when it does land, it can expand to cover the entire reel it is on. There is only one condition that applies: the expansion must result in at least one winning sequence.
The Freespins feature is the main attraction in Emperor’s Garden, and you can trigger it by landing 3 or more Scatter symbols during the same spin. Unlike the Wild, the Scatter can actually land in any position across the five reels.
This will award you a total of 10 free spins, and throughout their duration any win that has a Wild symbol in it will be subject to a 3x multiplier. Furthermore, the Freespins bonus can be retriggered. If you land another 3, 4 or 5 Scatter symbols simultaneously, this will award you an extra 10 free spins on top.
Emperor’s Garden is genuinely all about its Freespins bonus. The setup of the game is very basic, but that’s not at all a bad thing. Gameplay is simple and very straightforward, but it may take a while before you actually trigger that bonus.
