The theme of the game of Emperor’s Garden features an Emperor in the time of ancient China, with his opulent lifestyle and beautiful garden with colourful plants, trees and birds. There is also Oriental music in the background.
This is a five reel game, with twenty five pay lines, designed and produced by NextGen Gaming. The symbols belong to this vast garden, like pergolas, carved lion stone statues and lotus flowers, bonsai trees and a lot of Koi fish. The Emperor also has a collection of ornamental letters and numbers. The Garden logo is the Wild and the Emperor’s Koi fish is the Scatter, which triggers the Scatter Bonus game and the free spins feature. The Garden Wild can also replace any missing symbol in a winning combination, with the exception of the Scatter.
The Beautiful Garden is the Background
The Emperor’s garden itself is the backdrop to this attractive game, which can be accessed on Android or iPhone.
The classic playing card symbols are inspired by Mahjong tiles, and fit the theme of the game. If you find three to five matching playing card symbols you will win a prize. They range from nine and ten through to the Ace and are the lower value symbols in Emperor’s Garden. Five of the Pergola symbols or the Lotus flower icons will give you an even better payout. The Emperor’s carved Lion statues are not easy to find, but should you land five of them on the reels you receive a reward of one thousand times your original wager. A huge reward of five thousand times your stake awaits, if you find five Emperor Symbols on an active pay line.
Wilds and Scatters can Give Good Prizes
The Garden Wild can appear on reels 2, 3 and 4, and when they appear they will expand to cover the entire reel, which will give you plenty of chances to make a winning combination. The Emperor’s Koi fish Scatter will trigger the Scatter bonus round if you find between two and five on the reels, and three of the Scatter symbols will start you off on the Free spins feature with ten free spins. All Scatter wins in the Emperor’s Garden slot game are multiplied by your total stake, so even two of the Koi fish appearing will give you a good prize. During this free spins feature, all wins achieved by using the Garden Wild will be multiplied by three. This feature can be retriggered, so there are many good chances for lucrative wins. In the Emperor’s Garden, there is a little animated sequence, where the Koi fish swim about whenever they form a winning combination, and dragonflies flutter about on the side of the reels.
The Gamble Feature
Every time you get a winning combination, you are given the opportunity to access the Gamble round. This bonus feature is played in a setting like Las Vegas. You guess the colour of the next playing card to be drawn, and if you guess correctly your winnings will be doubled. You can then have a guess at the suit of that card, and if you guess correctly, your winnings will be quadrupled. You can use this feature up to five times, if you get it right.
The expanding Wilds and Wilds that award bonuses during the free spins rounds are the draw cards in Emperor’s Garden. There is also a great potential jackpot that can be won.
