Evil Emperor offers truly retro graphics like those you would find in a classic comic, and although the graphics could not be described as top of the range, they work beautifully with the theme and provide a futuristic vibe. The design is reflected in everything from the background through to the symbols, and despite the simplicity of the design the developers have put a lot of attention to the individual symbols. There are five themed symbols and five of the usual playing card symbols. The high paying motorbike and female saviour symbols are fabulous along with the other themed symbols. Whilst there is not the breath-taking graphics that players have come to expect there is something about Evil Emperor which provides an almost rustic charm. Generally Evil Emperor is like other games that Merkur have produced in the past, however as Merkur is a provider of the more diverse free slots and have 60 years’ experience it comes as no surprise that they pull everything out of the bag with what appears to be very little effort! There are some interesting bonus features in offer.
The bonus side of this slot centres around the Evil Emperor and his ability to expand over the reels with the rewards he offers, and this means that players may want to delay saving the empire for a while!
The Emperor is the wild in this online slot and when he lands on the 2nd, 3rd or 4th reel he will expand and fill the entire reel, the expanding wild then substitutes for all other symbols to provide players with the highest win line that is available, and it is the Emperor that provides some of the best winnings in the game and giving players ample opportunity to take advantage of the +95% RTP.
In addition to the expanding wild game feature, players are also treated to a highly popular gamble feature every time they land a winning spin, and they have the option to enter into the gamble mode, if they take this option they begin a mini game and they have to choose between the ladder or card gamble. The ladder gamble sees players trying to climb the ladder whilst the card gamble sees the player having to choose the suits of the card. Regardless of whether players are playing for free or real money they can cash out whenever they wish and they also have the choice to book half of their winnings so that they only gamble with half. Whilst in this feature players can increase their wins considerably with amounts dependent on their original bet.
With a minimum bet value of just 0.05 credits and a max bet of 10 credits this is a game slot that can be enjoyed by all. Although it was not necessarily designed with high rollers in mind, it does allow players to make responsible bets based on a much lower budget, as well as the ability to play for free if they just wish to give the slot a go prior to committing to the game completely.
