Released in 2018 by developers Betsoft, the Ogre Empire slot is a 3D video slot which matches wonderful graphics with good game-play to keep players enticed by this ever-popular game. The machine has five reels and 25 possible pay-lines as well as some features which add to the enjoyment. It is a medium variance offering. One negative of this machine is the RTP rating, which is pretty low at just 95.22%.
This game has a fantasy and medieval theme about it as so many UK slots tend to have. It has two modes; Day and Night and this is pretty significant when it comes to playing the game. Both are different but have the overall theme of the game at its core. The game has all of the regular symbols such as the A, K, Q and J royals and there are also fantasy icons including diamonds, ogres, gold, mushrooms, a mace and gems. The game is compatible with most mobile devices too which is another appealing trait it has.
Betting and Winning
With coins ranging from 0.01 to 1.00, the minimum bet if all 25 pay-vblines are in place in this game is 25p while the maximum sits at £25 for any one spin, which means that a moderate starting bank can be enough to activate the features of the game. There is an auto-play function for those who want to set that up. As ever it is a combination of three of the same icon that is needed to enter the pay-table.
The two modes of the game are randomly triggered. When the sun appears on the middle reel day mode is activated and when that reel carries the moon it is the night mode. During the day mode the game pays out four times the stake.
There is a Sun Bloom Wild Flower icon which can randomly appear during this mode, and when you get that three nearby symbols are turned into wilds. The dreaded Ogre may put a spanner in the works though. He’ll come along and smash some existing symbols which leaves empty spaces that are replaced with other icons cascading down.
The first thing to note when the night mode is activated is that you will be paid out six times your stake on winning spins. The Wild icon is the Night Bloom Wild Flower, which has the same impact as the Sun Bloom once during the day. In this mode, the A symbol is turned into the Joker. That is a Wild which carries a 2x multiplier. The K symbol becomes a King and the Q icon turns into a Queen. These have a higher multiplier.
Double Up Feature
One of the exciting features to this game is the Double Up one where you bet on a game of heads or tails. This feature is triggered with a regular win and you can bet all or half your winnings. You double your money if you win and can continue to play this until you wish to collect your earnings.
This is quite a unique game in that it has two modes in the one offering. There are advantages and disadvantages to both but they are both fun to play and keep the gamer interested. The graphics, theme and game-play are all strong and the Double Up feature offers up the chance of winning big. Whether you play for real money or play money this slot is well worth a try.
