Featuring free spins, wild multipliers and the Napoleon Streak, Napoleon Rise of an Empire is part of the Colossal Payout Series by Blueprint Gaming. The slot game adapts the theme of the Napoleonic wars into a video slot where the spoils of war can reach as much as 100,000 coins on a single spin!

Field of Battle

On a field of battle in 1804, you’re greeted by a short animated sequence where the cries of men echo and set the stage for the atmosphere to come. The mounted Napoleon, on his beloved grey steed Marengo, thunders across the battlefield leading his cavalry into victory, glory or even death. There is an ominous smoke moving across the screen from the explosion of heavy cannons and muskets. A heroic tune plays in the background that is overlapped only by the sound of the rumbling reels and audio effects from the triggering of a payline win or unlocked feature.  The subject matter for this slot is reinforced through the crisp and clear symbols that include a French red-uniformed soldier, a battleship, grey steed, cannon as well as the six lower value poker symbols.

Napoleon Wild

The military leader Napoleon is used as the wild substituting for any of the other symbols except the Bonus scatter symbol. Becoming Emperor, he has the power to combine to form his own payline of 2, 3, 4 or 5 symbols long for rewards of 400, 800, 1,200 or 100,000 coins! It does not end there however because he is also a win multiplier with each instance of him on a win line, while substituting for another symbol, acting as a 2x multiplier. Thus, it is possible to reach total multipliers of 16x with a regular symbol in combination with four wilds on the same payline.

Battle Cry Modifier

On any random spin, Napoleon can command additional bonus symbols to be added to the reels so that the odds of the reel(s) stopping with some in plain view are increased or, alternatively, wilds to be added to the spaces.

Free Games + Napoleon Streak

The bonus scatter symbol in sets of 3, independent of position, can unlock 10 free games which are enhanced with the Napoleon Streak. This feature locks winning symbols in place while spinning, at no cost to you, for a chance to add more symbols for greater wins. The free games can be re-triggered for additional spins when it is active.

Adrenaline Pumping

Napoleon: Rise of an Empire slot, played on 5 reels and with 20 fixed paylines has an RTP of 95.96% and a variance towards the higher end. Given the potentially larger payout this is to be expected but also keep in mind that you may require a higher bankroll to play it longer to better your odds. Part of the Colossal Payout Series from Blueprint Gaming, the video slot melds a superbly supported and unique theme with exciting game features to keep your adrenaline pumping.
