Playson, a fast-rising developer of online Casino slots and brains behind the Hold and Win series, has announced its newest slot, Empire Gold: Hold and Win. This game takes players back to Ancient Rome, where they can become heroes of their destiny after securing victory on the battlefield. The game also marks the return of the rewarding Treasure Chest feature.
Empire Gold: Hold and Win boasts sharp graphics based on the battles of Ancient Rome. The battlefield is set on a 5×3 game board where you’ll see symbols like soldier helmets, shields, the legion, and gold coins. These symbols, coupled with the immersive soundtrack, immediately trigger an Ancient Rome vibe.
That said, players can receive a reward after matching 3+ symbols on any of the 25 fixed bet lines. The J-A poker card royals are the low-value icons with a payout of 0.20x to 2x the stake. They are joined by shields, helmets, and soldiers, representing high-value symbols. These symbols can reward gamers with 0.20x to 10x the stake.
As you continue gathering these pay symbols, the wild army general can appear and replace them on the reels except the scatters. Besides acting as the game’s wild symbol, this icon also comes with a 0.6x, 2.4x, or 12x payout, making it the most rewarding and dynamic symbol on the reels.
The golden eagle represents that game’s scatter, rewarding players with 8 free spins when they land at least 3 on the reels. This symbol also comes with a 1x payout when you find at 3+ on the game board. And don’t forget to be on the lookout for the golden coins (bonus symbols) that can trigger the bonus game when you find at least 6.
Speaking of the bonus game, players will begin with 3 respins, with each new bonus symbol resetting the spins back to 3. This continues until players finish all their respins or fill the reels with the bonus symbols. Then, you will receive the total value of the bonus icons when the bonus game ends. Remember that the bonus symbols can randomly trigger the Treasure Chest feature during the bonus or main game.
The bonus symbols can also randomly drop on the battlefield to launch the Grand (5,000x), Major (150x), Minor (50x, or Mini (20x) jackpot. Gamers can bag the Grand jackpot after filling the entire cells on the gameboard with bonus icons. Even better, the mystery symbols can appear during the bonus games and randomly transform into jackpot icons.
Commenting on this brand-new slot, Tamas Kusztos, CCO at Playson, remarked: “Empire Gold: Hold and Win takes our Hold and Win portfolio back to the halcyon days of the Roman Empire, where players must rise to the challenge in order to be triumphant on the battlefield. With the return of our Treasure Chest feature befitting of such a slot, this title should keep players entertained thanks to the phenomenal gameplay Empire Gold has to offer.”
