Glorious Empire is an online slot game by software manufacturer NextGen Gaming. This is a Roman-themed offering with graphics that are about as glorious as the title is. They are sharp, high-definition and even offer a stunning view over a Roman coastal city. The reels are semi-transparent to allow you to enjoy more of the scenic backdrop, and as for the symbols, these mix traditional lower value playing cards with more theme-related icons such as a silver helmet and a chariot of war. In addition, there are two character symbols, the more lucrative of which is the fair-haired young woman; and to complete this seemingly perfect composition there’s also a great backing track.
The layout in Glorious Empire, however, is less common than what you normally see in online slot games. It features a somewhat taller grid of 5 reels and 4 rows, and it comes with a total number of 40 active paylines. The paylines are also fixed, so there will be no room for adjustments. With that in mind, you will find that the stakes in this offering are rather expensive: they start off at an already steep minimum bet of 50p per single spin and they reach a maximum bet of a whopping £500 per spin.
Where to Play
The Wild symbol is the highest paying icon on the reels. It can also land on any of the five reels, which you will find is extremely important with the next feature. In addition, the Wild will be able to substitute for any of the other icons, and thus it can help create winning combinations. However, the Wild will not be able to replace the game’s Scatter for this purpose.
Be sure to keep your eyes open for the Scatter, as it will be able to activate the one special feature that Glorious Empire has in store – the Freespins feature. You can trigger it by landing 3, 4 or 5 Scatter symbols simultaneously during a spin, and unlike with many other NextGen Gaming slots, the number of Scatters you land will actually have an impact on the bonus.
Landing 3 Scatters will award you the minimum of 7 free spins, but if you triggered the bonus round with more Scatters, then you will also benefit from a bigger number of free spins; 4 Scatter symbols will award you 10 free spins, and you can count on the maximum of 15 free spins for a total of 5 Scatter symbols.
What’s no less important is that throughout the Freespins feature, players get to enjoy Sticky Wilds. Meaning that any time a Wild symbol appears on the reels, it will remain there for the rest of the bonus round, and you can make sure that it stays there even longer by retriggering this feature. Simply land another 3, 4 or 5 Scatters to gain another 7, 10 or 15 free spins, respectively.
The setup in Glorious Empire is overly simple with the main focus being on the Freespins round and Sticky Wilds. This is also where you will be able to get the highest payouts from, but this is after all a medium to high variance title, so it may be a while before you actually get to the bonus.
