Emperor Vs Empress
Emperors appear in several good slot games, including Emperor of the Sea by Microgaming. That same gaming outfit is also behind another slot called Empress of the Jade Sword. The Oriental theme is clear in both these games, but will one of the titles win out against the other?
Emperor of the Sea
This is a great slot with a stunning background. It shows the sea and the sky, but they are drawn in 2D format in various shades of blue and gray. The reels boast several impressive icons, appearing on a 5 x 4 matrix. Watch out for a turtle sitting atop a pile of gold coins, some koi carp, and a dragon or serpent rearing out of the sea. The minimal controls make the game screen look less cluttered. The logo is the wild, appearing in stacks, and the golden pot is a scatter. You need only find three of these to win eight free games with Growing Wilds and Rolling Reels in action. You can even choose to play 38, 68, or 88 lines!
Empress of the Jade Sword
You could argue the graphics in this are far better than those in the above game. However, each has its merits. This one shows a 5 x 3 format where the icons stand out in sharp contrast against the muted background. There’s a lot of depth to appreciate here. The wild shows several items including a jade sword, and this comes to life and swishes around if it helps you win something. You will also earn a free spin whenever the sword appears. The sword remains where it first appeared for that spin. The scatter shows a temple and it is labeled as well. There is also a bonus icon that will trigger a pick bonus. Three, four, or five scattered temples award you with eight, 12, or 20 free games to play. if a jade sword wild appears next to one or more medium-value icons in these games, the icons will turn into wilds.
What’s our verdict on these two slot games?
There is plenty going on in both games. They both work well and stand up on their own merits. However, if we had to choose, we would choose the Empress of the Jade Sword for the increased amount of bonus features on offer. Having said that, it may just depend on our mood!
