With a fantasy theme, The Queen’s Curse Empire Treasures slot takes place with mountains in the backdrop. With a good vs evil storyline, it has a mystical feel graphically.

Symbols on the reels include clubs, diamonds, hearts, spades and shields as the low value symbols. Then there are crowns, the Evil Queen, orb and sceptres, a princess, a witch and the Good Queen. The Good Queen is the most rewarding symbol paying 5 x your total stake for 5 in combination.

There is a W wild symbol which replaces all symbols bar the scatter. It pays up to 8.33 x your total stake for 5 on a payline. There is also a Mirror Wild (more details below). The Evil Queen vs Princess symbol is the scatter with 2 triggering the free spins. The higher value symbols can appear stacked to increase your winning potential.

The Queen’s Curse Empire Treasures Mobile

Created with HTML5 technology, The Queen’s Curse Empire Treasures can be played on all devices including mobiles, tablets, laptops and PCs. The 5×4 reel set up alongside big symbols works well on handheld devices.

The Queen’s Curse Empire Treasures Bonus Features

With a total of 8 bonus features, The Queen’s Curse Empire Treasures slot has a lot going on. It comes with transforming symbols, respins, stacked symbols, wilds and free spins with extras. There are also 4 progressive jackpots up for grabs.

Stacked Symbols feature

On any spin, the Stacked Symbols feature can apply. 1 symbol can appear heavily stacked on 1 or various reels. The only symbol this doesn’t apply to is the scatter.

Mirror Wild feature

When the Mirror Wild symbol appears on reel 3 in the base game, the Mirror Wild feature is triggered. The Mirror Wild will display a high value symbol and turn all instances of that symbol wild for that spin. With only 1 Mirror Wild symbol landing per spin, this can apply in the Mirror Wild Free Games feature (more details below).

The Evil Queen feature

The Evil Queen feature is activated when the Evil Queen symbol lands in full on both reels 1 and 5. All high value symbols on the 3 middle reels become Evil Queen symbols for that spin. If the Mirror Wild feature triggers on the same spin, any symbol that becomes wild will transform into the Queen wild.

Princess Respins feature

The Princess Respins feature is played when you land a Princess symbol fully stacked on reels 1 and 5. All Princess symbols lock in position with a cash prize appearing on them. With respins awarded, only Princess symbols and empty spaces can land.

New Princess symbols landing will lock and give you another respin. The feature ends when no new Princess symbols land. The more Princess symbols, the bigger the prize. 4 will give you a 2x stake prize whilst 20 Princess symbols will pay 1,000 x your total stake.

Free Games features

the-queens-curse-empire-treasures-slot-free-games-features

When the Evil Queen and Princess scatter appears on both reels 1 and 5 in the base game, the Free Games features come into play. You then select ‘SPIN’ to reveal what feature you’ve won. Each beginning with 12 free spins, 1 or 2 scatters appearing will give you 3 or 12 more free spins respectively. Here’s what they offer:

  • Queen Free Games feature: when you get a win with a high value symbol, it transforms into a Queen symbol for the remainder of the feature. An extra free spin is won if you get a win with a high value on your last free spin.
  • Princess Free Games feature: a symbol is chosen to appear stacked on every reel on each free spin (bar the Queen or scatter).
  • Mirror Wild Free Games feature: Mirror Wild symbols can appear on the 3 middle reels. When it lands, it displays a high value symbol and turns all instances wild for that free spin. If 2 or 3 Mirror Wilds land, 2 or 3 high value symbol become Mirror Wilds.

Empire Treasures Jackpot feature

Part of the Empire Treasures network, the Empire Treasures Jackpot feature is triggered randomly from any spin. The higher your stake, the greater the chances of activating the feature.

Guaranteed to win 1 of the 4 progressive jackpots, here’s what each jackpot pays out at a minimum (seed value) and what the current jackpots are:

Originality








The Queen’s Curse Empire Treasures slot has 8 bonus features which is a lot. Well designed, the respins give you the biggest wins with 1,000 x your total stake up for grabs if you fill the reels with Princess symbols.

Whilst there are 3 free spins features, a screen full of wilds will result in a 250 x stake payout. That’s not very high. You do of course have the 4 progressive jackpots with the Grand Jackpot paying a minimum of £200,000. Whilst this is good, this game is recommended for those chasing a jackpot.

I would rather play Playtech’s Age of the Gods for example which comes with 4 progressive jackpots, 4 free spins features and 50,000 x stake max wins per free spin. Playtech’s DC Comics slots also offer more in terms of gameplay as well as jackpots. Justice League is 1 of my favourites.

Pros
  • 8 bonus features
  • 4 progressive jackpots
  • Superb design/theme
Cons
  • 1,000 x stake max wins
