Inspired by Asian culture, this beautiful slot by Genesis Gaming is here to take you on a magical journey to the exotic environment and majestic landmarks scattered throughout the country.

Visually, the game is stunning. Everything is laid out excellently, starting from the moving background filled with small sea islands and waterfalls to the flower petals passing through the screen now and then. The reels appear encased in a lovely metal cage pattern that leads to the top where the logo of the game is seen.

Visuals put aside, mechanically the game looks and works just like most other slots as the reels spin altogether and come to stop individually in consecutive order. Winning symbols become shortly animated.

Asian culture has inspired hundreds of slots but one of the best would have to be NetEnt’s Koi Princess so make sure you check that out. For now, let’s see how the game works.

How to Play Rise of the Empress

The game consists of 3 rows and 5 reels with 25 fixed paylines. The controls can be found below the reels allowing you to set the preferred bet size, spin, set up the autoplay function, access the paytable, and much more.

Bets start as low as $0.25 and are capped at $50. Rise of the Empress is a high volatility game with a medium feature frequency meaning that even though that features are fairly uncommon you will see a big return by triggering them. The most you can win around $300,000.

The game has 6 low paying and 4 high paying symbols. The first come in the form of card values 9 – A followed by 4 female characters, a farmer, a warrior, an archer, and the empress.

The game’s special symbols are:

  • Wild – The slot’s wild is the gold dragon symbol. It substitutes for all symbols except for the scatter. It appears on all reels except for the very first one.
  • Scatter – Represented by a couple of koi fish, the scatter only appears on the first, third, and fifth reel. 3 of them trigger the free spins feature.

Game Rules

5th Reel Re-Spin

This effect can be triggered by getting 4 or 5 of a kind on a line. The first 4 reels are held in place and the fifth reel respins. If the respin has resulted in a 5 of a kind win but hasn’t triggered any secondary features then the player is awarded an additional respin.

Each respin increases the win multiplier by 2x up to a max of 5x. If the respin creates a 4 of a kind win with a scatter symbol on the fifth reel, one of the following features will be triggered:

  • Royal Pick – 4 of a kind “9, 10, or J”. The player must select one of three items and will receive a cash prize between 1 and 10 credits which will be multiplied by the total wager.
  • Added Wild – 4 of a kind “Q, K, or A”. Two random reels will become wild. Only reels 1, 2, 3, and 4 can turn wild.
  • Mixed Free Spins – 4 of a kind “farmer, warrior, archer, or empress”. The player is awarded 10 mixed free spins. During these, the high paying symbols pay as mixed symbols. These have their own paytable and the winnings are added on top of any other line wins.
Free Spins

Getting 3 scatters will award 10 free spins. The 5th reel re-spin feature can be triggered during the free spins. These and the mixed free spins do not count as free spins. Getting 3 scatters will award 10 additional free spins.
