Glorious Empire Slot from Nextgen Gaming

Rizk Casino has just added the brand new Glorious Empire slot from Nextgen Gaming to their casino, featuring a classic ancient Rome and Greek theme which is housed in a 5×4 reel set and features 40 fixed pay lines that also pay in both directions.

The base game is a fairly standard offering with a variety of different symbols on the reels along with a few special wild symbols and of course the Bonus Scatter symbols present on all five reels, one feature we did find appealing is the special pre-emptive win alert where horns will play and signal a forthcoming win,

Given the 40 pay lines that are on offer and the fact that they pay in both directions, you will find that there are very frequent base game pays on this slot, the downside is that these pays will often be quite low (in the range of 0.5x to 10x) but very frequent.

The main bonus round is where things get mixed up a bit with the addition of the very popular Sticky Wilds feature along with the ability to re-trigger the bonus round and add further free spins into the mix.

The initial bonus trigger can also reward anywhere from 7 free spins right up to 15 free spins with a 5 scatter trigger, so there definitely going to be plenty of potential on this slot.

Glorious Empire Slot – Free Spins Bonus Round

The main bonus round is triggered by landing 3 or more of the special scatter symbols anywhere on the reels and rewards up to a maximum of 15 free spins for a 5 scatter trigger, the range of free spins on offer is as follows.

  • 3 Scatter Symbols – Award an initial 7 Free Spins.
  • 4 Scatter Symbols – Award an initial 10 Free Spins.
  • 5 Scatter Symbols – Award an initial 15 Free Spins.

The good news is that the free spins can also be retriggered during the bonus round too, which is where things could get very exciting.

During the free spins round any of the special wild symbols that land on the reels are then made into “StickyWilds” and will stay present on the reels from the rest of the free spins bonus round.

Given that this slot pays both ways if you manage to land several of the Sticky Wilds early in the bonus round things can get very exciting, and given the re-trigger potential there is definitely some decent win potential from this bonus round too.

The stated theoretical RTP (Return To Player) for the Glorious Empire slot is a very decent 96.929% and Nextgen have categorised this as a medium-high volatility slot, although we would say that Glorious Empire certainly feels more like a medium variance slot with the frequent base game pay wins.

Overall Thoughts

Overall this is a fairly decent online slot release from Nextgen, you have a slot with frequent base game wins, the addition of sticky wilds during the bonus round and a pay both ways format.

Along with these bonus features, there is up to 15 free spins on offer and the possibility of re-triggering the bonus round too, which is where this slot really could shine combined with the Sticky Wilds.
