Gong Gaming is currently developing on a number of new slot machines, including Empire Shields. It appears that this is a release that will be inspired by medieval warriors, thus the usage of shields on the reels is justified. The graphics are appealing, and there are a few notable elements that aren’t found in other games. This will be available only at Microgaming casinos.
In Empire Shields, 5×3 reels will spin for you. Regular wilds will be included in the game, as well as a range of modifiers (Double Reels, Wilds, Multipliers, Expanding Wilds) that can amp up the action. When you include in the free spins, it’s no wonder that this slot machine can pay out a jackpot of 12,150 times your bet. In terms of RTP, it’s looking fairly excellent, with a figure of 96.19 percent.
Prizes and Betting
The wagers begin at $0.20 and can be up to $20 every spin by the player.
The slot’s returns are rather good, reaching up to 12,150 times the investment. Free spins, multipliers, and the reel expansion mechanic can all help you get it. Although it is a high-volatility game, I am pleased with its RTP of 96.19 percent.
Empire Shields Slot Features
The wild, one of the most important symbols inside, is there to assist you by substituting other symbols and making new combinations. It may also pay on its own, as its own combinations pay 15 times the round’s stake per fully covered line.
Toppers occupy the locations shown at the top of the five reels, each providing a different modifier. The Toppers gradually release their features as they charge at random.
Double Reel: Increases the amount of ways to win by adding extra symbols to the reel (could take it up to 7,776 ways).
Multipliers: The wins that are produced by its reel can be multiplied up to 10 times. Multipliers from several Toppers can be added together.
Wild: adds a wild symbol to one of the reels at random.
Expanding Wild: This feature adds a wild reel at the bottom of the reel.
The free spins option will be the other major feature. Activated by 3 to 5 scatters, it first takes you to a picking feature, where you can win up to 5 toppers. Then you’ll get your 10 free spins to put those modifiers to work. Each time the feature is reactivated, it adds 10 more spins.
The Toppers must still be charged because they do not activate on their own at first. If you haven’t done it yet, the game will do it for you during the last round.
Design & Theme
It’s the kind of design that combines fantasy and the Middle Ages, with the action centered on warfare. In the distance, there is a citadel, and a storm is brewing in the sky, while the reels are in front, and they come with Toppers (special meters that get filled randomly, at the top).
Six Royals are delivered by the first symbols, which are followed by pendants, rings, four warriors, the W wild, and the Lion scatter.
Overall, I found Empire Shields to be a slot machine with a fun design and a solid feature set. I’m not a big admirer of the random element in how the Toppers charge; I’d rather have symbols on the reels to do it.
