Online casino software provider, Yggdrasil Gaming, has announced the launch of their latest new progressive jackpot slots game, Empire Fortune.

Their latest game will share the progressive jackpot pool with their popular game, Joker Millions. Besides for the attraction of the progressive jackpot, Empire Fortune offers a range of other bonus features.

The game includes a hold feature that allows players to hold two free spins or bonus symbols for the chance of hitting a third during the upcoming spin. The jackpot bonus feature is the highlight of the game and it features a 3D wheel which spins to reveal your prize. The fireworks feature that is part of the bonus game launches rockets randomly onto the wheel, with players awarded prizes based on where the rocket lands.

A range of prizes are available, including cash, free spins, mystery prizes and more. If players manage to progress up the levels of the wheel, they can reach the big red diamond in the centre, triggering the progressive jackpot.

The 5 reel, 20 payline game has an opulent feel with its gilded border, jewel encrusted symbols and riches strewn around the background of a palatial room.

“Progressive jackpots are always popular, but for too long developers have focused on the big prize and have neglected the core gameplay,” stated Jonas Strandman, product owner for games at Yggdrasil.

“Following on from the success of Joker Millions, Empire Fortune is a new breed of progressive jackpot slot that provides a great experience to all users – not just the lucky individual who lands the jackpot. With more players than ever playing these engaging titles, that jackpot is very quickly increasing and we look forward to seeing it drop once again.”

The Joker Millions progressive jackpot was last won in July for almost €2.9 million.
