If you enjoyed playing either of the newly released Wild Crusade: Empire Treasures, or Vikings: Empire Treasures online slot machines, and if you’re looking for a new slot to play this week, then you’re going to love what we’ve found for you right here. Available now at several of our reviewed UK casino sites is the new Pride of Persia: Empire Treasures online slot.

It was developed by Origins (a Playtech subsidiary company), and it’s now available to play at Casino.com, Mansion Casino, Betfair Casino, Mr Green Casino, 888 Casino and Party Casino, to name just a few highly recommended Playtech-powered casinos. It was released simultaneously on desktop and mobile in November 2021, and it can be launched either instantly in your web browser or from within the Playtech casino download client.

If you hadn’t already guessed by the title, this new Playtech slot has a Persian Empire/Middle Eastern theme. It comes with 5 reels and a whopping 100 fixed paylines, and it’s playable from as little as £0.20 per spin up to a maximum of £500.00 per spin. It has four progressive jackpots that can climb to no fixed amount before being won, and they can be won at any time of the day, by any player, playing with any stake.

The three most important symbols to keep an eye out for as you spin the reels are the Free Spins Scatter Symbols (the Golden Dragon Symbol), the Bonus Symbols (the Silver Lion Symbol) and the Wild Symbols (the letter ‘W’), and the three main bonus features you can look forward to triggering as you spin the reels are a Picking Bonus, a Jackpot Bonus, and, as mentioned, a Free Spins Bonus.

Let’s start by taking a quick look at the Picking Bonus, which will instantly kick into action when at least 1 Bonus Symbol lands in any position on reels 2, 3, and 4 (the three middle reels) on the same spin. Once triggered, you will instantly be transported away from the reels to a second screen with 14 gold coins. You get to keep on making picks to win prizes until you reveal a collect symbol. During this fun multi-level side game, you can play to win Instant Cash Prizes and Win Multipliers.

To gain entry to the Free Spins Bonus, you need to land at least 1 Scatter Symbol in any position on reels 1, 3, and 5 on the same spin. Each time this happens, you will be awarded 20 Free Spins that are played in two sets of 10 Free Spins. In the first set, each Wild Symbol that shows up turns into a Frozen wild and locks in place. In the final set of 10 Free Spins, the Frozen wilds that you collected during the first set of Free Spins remain locked in place until the end of the feature.

Finally, you have the Empire Treasures Jackpot Bonus, which can randomly trigger on any lucky spin. Once triggered, you will be taken to another screen to take part in another fun picking bonus. There are 20 shields, and all you need to do is click on the shields to reveal hidden jackpot symbols (Mini, Minor, Major, and Grand). As soon as you have filled a symbol collection area, you will instantly be awarded the corresponding jackpot.

At the time of writing, the Mini Jackpot is worth around £117. Next up is the Minor Jackpot, which is now at around £2,179. You then have the Major Jackpot, which recently climbed above £28,425, and the biggest jackpot, the Grand Jackpot, which is now worth more than £117,647.
