Emperor’s Gold is a slot with a royal oriental theme. You’ll be immersed in a world of ancient Chinese emperors and their riches. The sounds, the symbols, and the soundtrack (when you’re betting big) are nicely done, and the color red — which is believed to be lucky in China — dominates this game’s layout.
The game’s artistic style and animations are cute, and the sounds are well done. What I’m missing here is a cool, oriental background track to really complete the experience.
Emperor’s Gold RTP
There’s little to say about the theoretical RTP of 96% that’s in line with the industry’s average. It’s fair, balanced, and promises a longer play time. Also, it’s warm and inviting for both new and experienced gamblers, as well as for those with high stakes and those with lower stakes.
Emperor’s Gold Gameplay
As we could expect, Barcrest gave us a nice-looking slot with an intuitive layout. Anyone who’s ever played one of their games will feel right at home.
The “BB” button is the Big Bets option, allowing you to risk big to earn big. The “?” button is the information button that will tell you the rules of the game and legal info. The “Autoplay” option lets you choose the number of spins and when spinning should be stopped, which I love after my hand gets tired from clicking. Finally, the “+” and “-” buttons raise or lower your bet.
Emperor’s Gold Symbols and Bonus Features
There are regular playing card symbols (J, Q, K, A), all of which have the same value. There are also the paper lantern, the temple, the panda, the tiger, the princess, and the emperor. The dragon symbol is the Wild, and it expands to cover the entire reel.
If you bet more than 2.00, the dragon even substitutes Scatters. Three or more Scatters trigger Free Spins.
In Free Spins, landing a dragon will upgrade all the picture symbols by one step. Landing Scatters or dragons during Free Spins will award additional free spins! Big Bets also grants a lot of perks that may let you bet big to win big, such as persisting Wilds and special bonuses when you land Scatters.
This game’s options may look complex, but everything becomes self-explanatory once you dive in and start playing.
All in all, Emperor’s Gold is a good game, no surprises here. I warmly recommend it to both new players and experienced bettors — anyone who likes the oriental theme will enjoy it. I suggest that you blast your own music with it because that can improve the whole experience. As always, if you can use the Big Bets option, do it! That’s the most exciting and fun feature this game offers.
