A flaming forest battlefield forms the backdrop to this epic online slot adventure, with the Roman Empire being the empire in question in the game’s title. We hunt down gold Roman coins as we bid to fill up coin meters to trigger the Wild Reels bonus feature.

The premise is similar to that of NetEnt’s Robin Hood: Shifting Riches slot, in that we collect coins to trigger the feature. Once we have collected the coins required to trigger the Wild Reel feature for that reel, the whole reel locks as wild for the number of coins we need to trigger each reel. Like a Roman battle it might take time to build to its crescendo, but when it does it is something to behold.

Pros & Cons

  • Plenty of Wilds thanks to the Wild Reels feature.
  • Several progressive jackpots to be won.
  • Excellent graphics. Bring the theme to life.
  • Have to fill pots to trigger Wild Reels.
  • Only one bonus feature.
  • Progressive jackpots mean lower RTP.

How to Play

Slots developers risk creating barriers to gamers looking for fun fast slots play by making betting interfaces difficult. Just like gamers, SG Digital believes playing online slots should be easy, so there are no such barriers on Reel Empire, with a simple bet toggle to the left of the reels. Simply click up or down to adjust the total stake level.

The large green Spin button sets the reels in motion, with left-to-right matching symbols across the game’s 20 paylines paying out winners. Collect gold coins by landing them on any reel to send them up to the coin collection meter above the reel and launch the bonus feature.


Another epic empire-themed slot, Microgaming’s Game of Thrones, used the banners of the four main houses to represent the top-paying symbols. SG Digital has opted to use a Centurion Commander and Legionnaire, together with the Great Eagle of Rome as the high paying symbols in Reel Empire.

The lower payers are Jacks through Aces represented by their respective capital letters. SG Digital includes a neat touch by using X as the Roman Numeral for 10. Not only does the main bonus feature deliver fully stacked Wild Reels but it also features Wild symbols across all reels during the base game.


The Reel Empire slot offers a single main bonus feature. It can result in several Stacked Wild reels for a series of spins as the Roman Empire goes in search of riches.

Bonus Name Bonus Explanation
Wild Reels

Trigger the feature by collecting coins on all five reels. The first and last reel have two coins in the coin meters above, reels 2 and 4 boast four coins while the centre reel features six coins. Collecting the required amount triggers a Wild reel held for the same amount of spins as required to trigger the feature. Filling up multiple coin meters will launch multiple Wild Reels, and will reset to 0 once the Wild Reel spins have completed.

Part Pots Jackpot

On any spin a rocket can appear from the bottom of the screen and explode into stars. You then have a series of picks to collect one of the 7 different progressive jackpots on offer. Collect three tickets to move up to the next VIP party level.
