The Wombat says: Get ready to march to victory Wombat Fans! You’ll need to don your armour and those all-important Roman sandals in Reel Empire slot from Core Gaming.
Conquer this game and you could create your own Roman realm, as there’s vast riches to be had with 7 (yes, 7) progressive jackpots on offer! Hail Cesar! And we though the Wild Blood II slot from Play’n GO had a lot going on!
Look and Feel
Reel Empire slot is set in an epic forest battle scene. Visually this game looks great, with flames flickering on trees behind the reels and smouldering armour left behind after the bloody combat . The soundtrack to the spinning action is a piece of pomp and ceremony – perfect for the victory parade! All in all nice-looking slot.
Reel Empire Slot Game Play
Reel Empire slot is a 5×3 game with 20 pay-lines. That´s about average, or just under the 25 line sweet spot you will see on the Parrots of the Caribbean slot and others.
Wins are created by matching symbols from left to right. Bets start at 0.20 and go up to 100 credits per spin.
Your reel icons include; the golden eagle, the centurion, the army general (could it be Marc Anthony?) and the red game logo flag as your high value symbols, plus the 10, J, Q, K, A and X (the roman numeral for 100) as the less valuable icons.
Land 5x of the red banner flag symbols and you’ll march away with a win of 12.5x your bet. Nice one.
The wild symbol is the red shield with the word ‘wild’ written on it, and it will do the usual job of substituting for all other icons of the reels to give you extra winning combos.
Free Spins and Bonuses
There is no Free Spins round in Reel Empire – instead the extra features focus on the wild icons… If you are more of a Spins Wombat then we would recommend Reactoonz 2 from Play ‘n Go. Just saying!
Wild Reels Look on the reels and you’ll see there are gold coins that land from time to time. These are scooped up and collected in a pot corresponding to each reel. Once a pot is full, that particular reel will become fully Wild for a number of spins, (the same number of spins as coins collected). Hurrah!
Party Pots Progressive Jackpot Here’s where all the fun begins! The Party Pots game is connected to the Core Gaming Jackpot Bonus – and here’s how it works:
The progressive Party Pots consist of a fixed minimum amount which gradually increase by a percentage of funds inputted into the game until it is won. When a Party Pot is won, it is reset and starts to rise all over again!
There is a 7 stage bonus game which can set off 7 progressive global jackpots, and during each standard reel spin, a proportion of the money staked is added to each cash pot. Here are the pots:
– House Party Pot: Starts at £50
– Pool Party Pot: Starts at £100
– Club Party Pot: Starts at £200
– Beach Party Pot: Starts at £500
– Boat Party Pot: Starts at £1,000
– Concert Party Pot: Starts at £5,000
– Vegas Party Pot: Starts at £15,000
During any spin, a firework rocket can shoot up from the Party Pots area, located at the bottom of the screen. If this explodes, then the Party Pots feature has been activated. Now you can really celebrate!
Next, you’ll have to choose one of 26 stars that will give you one of the following things:
– CASH – An instant cash prize will be added to your Total Win.
– JACKPOT – You’ll win the current progressive amount in play. EEEEK!
– COLLECT – You’ll leave the jackpot round. Boo.
– TICKET – You’ll level up upgraded to the next Party Pot!
Reel Empire slot is ALL about the Wild reels. Land enough of the gold coins, and you could scoop yourself a whole screen full Wilds – which could be very profitable indeed, Wombat fans! We did miss having a Free Spins round though…
As for the Party Pots; if jackpot-hunting is your thing, you could do worse than this game.
