Emperor’s Garden

Emperor’s Garden is a five-reel online slot with an oriental theme that is set in an Emperor’s flower-filled garden.

It’s an extremely relaxing slot to play thanks to the soundtrack of tweeting birds and soothing oriental music, the aesthetically pleasing floral surroundings and the animated dragonflies. However, the game’s features add an interesting air of excitement to the game-play, with expanding reels, free spins, scatters, and a gamble feature to put the possibility of spinning several winning combinations firmly in your favour.

Visually, the game is a feast for the eyes, with a purple sky and leafy green trees and shrubs appearing over the top of the reels, and a tranquil, oriental pond filled with lilac lotus flowers beneath. The game’s symbols include 9, 10, Jack, Queen, King, and Ace, which are all depicted in exquisite oriental-style font, as well as statues of lions, pagodas, koi fish, the Emperor, a lotus flower, and an oriental garden. The Emperor attracts the biggest payouts, awarding 5,000, 1,000, 50, and 3 coins for five, four, three, and two-of-a-kind respectively, with the Lion coming a close second with its generous payouts of up to 1,000.
To play Emperor’s Garden, you can choose from a betting range of 0.01 to 50.00 and get spinning the reels either manually or using the auto-play function.

Wild symbol:
The Garden Wild symbol (which only appears on the second, third, and fourth reels) can substitute for all symbols except the scatter, and whenever it appears, it will expand to make the entire reel/s wild, which can boost the odds of creating one or more winning combinations in your favour.

Scatter symbols and bonus rounds:
The Koi Fish is the scatter symbol in the Emperor’s Garden online slot, and it pays out 2, 5, 20, or 100 when two, three, four, of five appear anywhere on the reels. Three or more Koi trigger the free games feature, where you’ll be given 10 free spins. Should any Garden wild symbols appear during the feature, the value of any wins it helps to create will be tripled. Another great thing about the free games round is that it can be retriggered time and again; all you’ll need is for more scatter symbols to appear, and you’ll keep adding more free spins to your collection.

Auto-play feature

As we’ve already mentioned, Emperor’s Garden is one of those slots that really makes you want to sit back and relax. So, it’s the perfect opportunity to take advantage of the game’s auto-play feature while you enjoy the Zen mood without needing to lift a finger. You can set the auto-play button to take as few as 5 spins on your behalf and as many as 500.

Gamble feature

The game’s designers have included a gamble feature, which you can choose to use or ignore depending on your preference. Betting on the card colour could double your winnings (e.g. a £6 win becomes £12), and betting on the card suit could quadruple your winnings (e.g. a £6 win becomes £24). However, if you guess incorrectly, then your original win will be lost.

Our verdict:

Emperor’s Garden will appeal to slots fans who appreciate the look of a game as much as the features it offers. It’s certainly one of the best-looking oriental-themed slot games we’ve seen, and while it doesn’t boast endless bonus rounds, its re-triggerable free spins feature and top jackpot of £10,000 certainly make it worth taking for a spin.
