He conquered most of Europe before meeting his Waterloo and now Napoleon has set his sights on the online slots world. Powered by WMS, Napoleon & Josephine is a volatile 5 reel, 50 payline game that comes with a bonus feature that offers up to 300 free spins. Join the emperor from between 50p and £100 per spin.

The reels are set against the grand Fontainebleau Palace and include necklaces, medals, stage coaches and palace symbols. Appropriately enough, Napoleon himself is the most lucrative symbol as he offers 750 coins if you land 5 on a payline. You can create winners featuring Boney from the right most reel as well as the more usual leftside manner.

Helping to create those winning combinations is the cannon which is the wild – it can hit on reels 2, 3 and 4 only and replaces everything apart from the scatter.

Napoleon’s wife Josephine is that scatter – you can look forward to the Free Spins Bonus feature and 10, 20 or 50 free spins if you land 3 of them on the same spin. Keep a special eye out for the Josephine symbols that have the numbers 2, 5, 10, 20 or 50 on them.

If 1 of these symbols make up part of the triggering combination, that number is added to your free spins tally. A full selection 50+ scatters means an enormous haul of 300 free spins! Extra wild cannon symbols are added to the reels throughout the free spins to further enhance your winning chances.

This is a very simple game – the visuals aren’t from the top drawer but at least the Napoleon symbol is instantly recognisable as the diminutive French general. There aren’t any bells and whistles on offer as far as features are concerned either. The best winning potential comes via the free spins round. Land a good number of games and the added wilds can work some magic.

The round isn’t the easiest to trigger though – this is a high variance game so expect some potentially big swings. Napoleon & Josephine follows other WMS titles in the G+ Deluxe series which are also highly volatile (think Black Knight II). There’s nothing flashy about Napoleon & Josephine. If you want a simple historical game that offers volatile action, then you’ll find just that here.
