Mighty Empire Hold & Win Review
We've spent a long time apologising for the colonial empires that came before us. However, iSoftBet is doing its best to undo decades of diplomacy and offend as many Frenchmen in the process! Personally, I think it's all very tongue in cheek and even our friends to the south of La Manche will see the amusing side of this one.
Suitably epic with a silly edge, Mighty Empire Hold & Win is an onslaught of stereotypical, Napoleonic icons that take us all back to our French history classes. The little man himself makes various comments as you progress and unlock different parts of the game and he seems to be extremely happy when big wins are recorded—who knew!? A classical wartime score accompanies you on your adventure and you can even experience this pillaging escapade on mobile devices as well.
The base game would be a little unadventurous if it wasn't for the occasional Napoleon modifiers, which incidentally have the power to bring great things to the reels. Otherwise, it is all down to the Scatter symbols and their multiplier values during the Respin Bonus. This concept could have been extended a lot further to make the game more intricate but iSoftBet has chosen to err on the side of caution in order to not overcomplicate matters and probably avoid offending our neighbours further!
With a hit rate of 32.6% and medium/high volatility, you should see fairly regular wins keeping your balance buoyant as you sail these waves in search of great riches. The RTP is a little stingy at 95.6 0% and the top payout of 2,500x may be considered a little close-fisted by some players too.
Maybe it is just because I'm British, but Mighty Empire Hold & Win did bring a smile to my face! The overly exaggerated French commentary reminded me a little of Le Bandit from Hacksaw Gaming but the feature selection reminded me of a thousand other slots doing the rounds at the moment. For a game that wants to take over the world, it isn't doing much to push the boundaries. That said, it's still a lot of fun and the high hit frequency will keep you coming back for more as you await that top 2,500x win.
