Slot Review: Ogre Empire by BetsoftPublished June 6, 2018 by Elana K
Ogre Empire can keep you on your toes with its 2 different modes and potential for high payouts. However, there are no free spins or re-spins in this game, making it less exciting than other Betsoft slots.
If you like ogres and you like Betsoft, you’ll enjoy the developer’s newest slot game, Ogre Empire. Set against a backdrop of a quaint town with a Shrek-like ogre standing center stage, you’ll be able to switch between Day and Night Modes and test your luck against the ogre who rules the town with an iron fist.
Ogre Empire is a 5-reel, 25-payline slot with a bet range between 25p-£25, an RTP of 95.22%, and a whopping maximum payout of 8000x your bet. It’s available to play at Betsoft-powered casinos.
The premise of the game is that the ogre is only awake during the day, which means the townspeople are awake at night. When you choose Day Mode, you’ll encounter the ogre. Night Mode will bring about the townspeople.
Reel symbols include classic letters, mushrooms, diamonds, stacks of coins, colored gemstones, flowers, a moon shrouded by nighttime clouds, suns, wilds, the ogre himself, and his club. Certain symbols are only available during Day or Night Mode.
Day Mode Features
Day Mode is activated when the sun symbol covers the entire 3rd reel. During this mode, the Sun Blossom Wild Flower can grow onto adjacent symbols and turns up to 3 of them wild. There’s also the Daytime Ogre Smash feature, during which the ogre smashes the reels, causing certain symbols to be crushed and removed, and making place for new symbols and potentially new wins.
Night Mode Features
Night Mode is triggered when the moon symbol covers the entire 3rd reel. During Night Mode, the ogre sleeps and the King, Queen, and Joker symbols appear on the reels. When 3 jokers land in a winning combination, you’ll get an 8x multiplier. There’s also a Night Bloom Wild Flower that glows in the dark and expands on the reels, turning up to 3 symbols wild. After every winning spin, players can play the Double Up Game, which allows you to flip a coin and potentially double your wins.
Night Mode is where the potential big payouts are; 5 King symbols reward 40x your bet and 5 Queens reward 25x your bet. When all the spots are filled with Kings and Jokers, you can win up to 8000x your entire bet.
Ogre Empire can keep you on your toes with its 2 different modes and potential for high payouts. However, there are no free spins or re-spins in this game, making it less exciting than other Betsoft slots. In all, it may be a game better-suited for newbies than for veteran players who enjoy more action and special features.
