There is no set strategy for video slot games because they use random number generators (RNGs). These make it impossible to predict recurring patterns during play as the outcome of each spin is random. You can maximize your efforts on Empress Wu by establishing a suitable bet amount and spinning accordingly. This will normalize play sessions for maximum enjoyment of this exciting slot game.


The best tip for playing Empress Wu slots is to bet the maximum coins on all 25 paylines. The larger your bet, the higher your reward. Basically, it’s the only way to ensure that you unlock the greatest payouts when a chosen payline hits.


The beautiful figure and star of the Empress Wu slot on CoolCat Casino is Empress Wu, the only female ruler in Chinese history. She was born in 624 bathed under the golden light of a total solar eclipse. Before she attained the title of Empress, Consort Wu was a concubine of Emperor Gaozong. She slowly gained influence, and was soon making major decisions. Her lust for power made her ruthless, and she was rumored to have killed her own daughter.

Considered an outsider by many of her peers, Empress Wu punished and exiled those who would oppose her. At the death of her Emperor, Empress Wu assumed full and awesome power over the dynasty. Her beauty was rivaled only by her treachery, and death or disgrace awaited all who opposed her. Play the Empress Wu slot on CoolCat Casino to embark on a quest for lavish treasures in the ancient Chinese dynasty era.
