This is a nice looking game, although the roman empire theme has possibly been done to death by online slots developers by now.

I think the presentation of NextGen slots has improved quite a lot recently, but I'm unsure if the same can be said about their payouts. This slot was suggested to me by a friend who knows of my love for NetEnt's Dead or Alive, but despite a sticky wild based bonus round it really isn't in the same league.

Hitting three scatters awards just seven free spins, which really isn't enough to amass a decent number of wilds on screen for a chance of a big win. The problem is exacerbated by the larger than normal reel area, which has an extra row compared to NetEnt's game. Thankfully, hitting four or five scatters does award ten or fifteen spins respectively, but those combinations are very rare like in most other games.

The payout for hitting those super rare five scatter combinations is a paltry 80x your stake too, a mere fraction of the 2,500x awarded by Dead or Alive for the same hit. The wild symbols don't pay out that great either, so hitting a wild line isn't even all that exciting. Just 5x your total stake for a full line of wilds is pathetic in my view, and that means even a full screen wouldn't give you an earth shattering win.

I did enjoy playing this game, and I guess I had high expectations because of the sticky wilds feature which were always going to be tough to match. The truth is Glorious Empire just isn't designed to be a super high variance monster like Dead or Alive is. If NetEnt's game didn't exist I think I would have really rated this slot, but as things stand I just can't get used to the drastically lower payouts awarded by this machine.

“Glorious Empire” is a Roman-themed slot launched by “NextGen” in September 2016, aimed to captivate all fans of ancient civilizations, but especially, it is a game designed for lovers of high variance slots.

Precisely the high volatility of this game is the result mainly of the combination of 5 factors: a structure of 5 x 4 reels, 40 pay lines, a tight paytable, lines paid in both directions from left to right and from right to left, and finally, a round of free spins endowed with a powerful feature that retains all wild symbols in place until the end of the free spins round.

Weaknesses of this slot are the prices per line set on its paytable and on the other hand, the fact that the player has to pay a bet of 50 credits for a spin with only 40 lines, but I should also add here the difficulty in triggering a single free spin round.

Personally, today during my first interaction with this game, from my first spin, my balance was never positive, in fact, my losing trend accelerated every time I increased my bet, however, after each of the two times I was able to trigger a round of free spins, both times I ended up with a balance very close to my initial point, so that it is possible that the actual RTP of this slot resembles the theoretical RTP of 96.929% described in the rules section of the game.

My total winnings in each of my two free spin rounds were 104x and 23x my total bet respectively, both were rounds of only 7 spins since scatters are not plentiful in this game.

I left the game with few losses, but certainly I did not want to continue after recovering almost completely my losses just it finished my second round of free games, I think at that point it was not so pleasant to sit and wait for a new possible round of free spins, not after all I had to wait for the first one.

In a 5 x 4 reels slot that pays lines formed in both directions like this, it is perfectly normal to get hits in most spins, however, the vast majority of payouts are only cents, so a delay in arrival of a round of free spins can perfectly translate into the depletion of your balance since personally I do not think it is feasible to obtain some gain counting only with the income generated during the base game.

There are players who really appreciate the highest variance slots, but simply this is not my kind of video slot.
