The Wombat says: As you already know, this Wombat is something of a history buff so we were delighted when Blueprint Gaming’s Napoleon Rise of an Empire slot popped into our spinbox. This is no traditional fruity like the Heartburst slot machine, despite the 17th-century theme. No, we are talking features galore here!
The year is 1804 Wombat Fans and the Napoleonic forces are marching across Europe! The newly crowned Emperor of France is Napoleon Bonaparte and this pint-sized warmonger is rallying his troops to conquer as much of the continent as he can get his sweaty little hands on.
Sadly for him, his quest for world domination backfired somewhat in the Battle of Waterloo in 1815, but that’s a whole other story…
Let’s see if we can divide and conquer our way to some gigantic wins! When you fire this one up you’ll realise you are in Coins of Egypt territory as far as the design quality goes- it is top-drawer stuff.
Look and Feel
As all the best games do, Napoleon: Rise of An Empire slot comes with a cool little animated intro – so don’t skip it. You find yourself in the middle of a bloody battle, where soldiers shout, smoke fills the screen and Bonaparte himself pops up on a horse.
Slot design has come a long way don’t you think? Try firing up this game next to a more traditional fruity like the 5 Reel Drive Slot and spot the difference.
Napoleon Slot Game Play
The Napoleon Rise of an Empire slot has five reels, three rows and twenty pay lines and is brought to us by Blueprint Gaming, the game makers behind the King Kong Cash and Ted slot.
Your symbols on the reels include a whole host of military-themed icons; cannons, cavalry horses, an old-fashioned warship and a soldier, plus the standard 9, 10, J, Q, K &A playing cards as your lower value symbols.
The Wild in this game is the wee Frenchman himself and he will come with some nice little extras including a 2x multiplier. But, when more than one Napoleon Wild completes a winning combo, then the multipliers will grow exponentially!
So, if you land three, four or five of the Wilds to form part of a win on a pay-line, you’ll get a 4x, 8x or 16x respectively!
Napoleon Slot Bonus Features
A randomly activated extra, Napoleon will pop on your reels to give you either bonus symbols or extra wilds. Bon!
This is a cool little feature that will launch during the Free Spins where any winning symbols become sticky and a re-spin is awarded. This continues until there are no more matching symbols that land.
And if that wasn’t enough, Napoleon: Rise of an Empire slot also comes with a Free Spins feature.
To set the bonus off, you’ll need to land three of the gold sceptre Bonus symbols anywhere on the reels. Next, you’ll be given ten Free Spins with the Wild Multipliers active and the Napoleon Streak bonus in play. As you can imagine, this could be very lucrative indeed…
Play Napoleon slot on mobile
Those of you who like being able to spin your favourite slots on the move will be pleased to hear that Napoleon: Rise of an Empire is compatible with all devices – mobile, tablet and desktop.
Napoleon: Rise of an Empire slot is for history buffs who enjoy nothing more than a few spins, or slot fans who like their gameplay with some exciting extras.
This is a decent game with some interesting bonuses: we like it! As Napoleon himself once said: “History is written by the winners!”
Wombat score: 4/5
We like those sticky symbols and re-spins after a win in the free spins round! Toutes nos félicitations, Blueprint Gaming
What is the stand-out feature?
We’d say the Napoleon Streak, which is unusual and gives a decent boost to the free spins. Any winning symbols stick and you get a re-spin. This feature repeats until you fail to land more matching symbols.
