Review and recommendations by our testing team
- Unreasonably having no high popularity among the players, Great Empire slot has quite an interesting gameplay, while having a good and quite realizable potential to give out the win of more than 1000x total bets.
- Most of the payment combinations triggered by the slot vary from less than the nominal bet to just a few bets, sometimes the slot makes long series of spins without winnings and compensated by periodic larger winnings, reaching values of 10x – 20x bets. The great advantage of the slot is the feature of expanding wild symbols to size 1 * 3 not only during free spins but also during the usual spins. The slot, although rarely, but still gives combinations with several wild symbols and winnings in 50x+ bets that also helps to keep the balance or partially compensate for the loss of balance while waiting for the bonus feature. Despite the fact that the maximum win received in the main game was only 70x, the slot is quite capable to give more expensive combinations.
- The free spins are triggered in a quite standard distance of 60-120 spins, and sometimes but rarely after more spins. The slot has good potential to trigger the free spins feature from the beginning of the session. The player is offered a choice of one of three types of bonus feature, including 5 free spins with fixed wild symbols on the first + third + fifth reels, or 10 spins with fixed wild symbols on the second + fourth reels, or 15 spins with only one fixed wild symbol on the third reel.
- The potential of maximum winnings of 1000x+ bets, of course, the slot is more capable of realizing at 5 spins (and the developer recorded a win that amounted to more than 1020x total bets). Often there will be minimal winnings in the range of 20x – 50x. However, more successful free spins during testing were with total winnings within 200x bets (from 100x to 300x).
- At 10 spins, the slot not often gives out minimum wins of less than 40x bets, often giving out winnings within 60x – 80x total bets, but the potential for larger winnings is lower. Getting a big win during testing with 10 spins failed, and the maximum win, recorded by the developer, was only 270x.
- 15 spins have a potential of approximately 10 spins. So, the highest potential is at 5 free spins, which allows you to keep better the balance for a long distance. During testing the slot still gave out a few wild symbols with a total win of 100x – 150x + bets and the maximum winning recorded by the developer was almost 280x.
- Information about the risk game can be found here. Also, information about the JackPot game here.
Great Empire can be considered for long sessions, but still, because the slot is often “Cold”, I would not recommend it for fulfilling the wager requirements and to bonus hunters. While playing for real money, you can consider different “scenarios” and distances for playing, looking after the “behaviour” and return of the slot in each type of bonus features. Personally, I would recommend only short gaming sessions with a choice of 5 free spins, and if missing a large win over several free spins features, change the slot machine.
