There’s just something about sandy dunes, pyramids and the general all-pervading mystery of ancient Egypt that keeps us coming back, when it comes to casino action.
Perhaps that’s why developers IGT have themed their newest release around that mystical land – or perhaps their designers just like creating those wacky hieroglyphics, and creating pictures of wacky Egyptian dudes walking like, well, an Egyptian.
In any case, this light-hearted, five-reel slot has a playful quality, depicting Queen Cleopatra with a knowing twinkle in her eye. But look past the simple but likable presentation, and there’s a solid slot here – with some interesting ways to try to land a payout.
Should three or more Jackpot symbols appear on the reels, you’ll trigger the Jackpot Bonus, where players must select from a range of spooky sarcophaguses – for the opportunity to win one of three jackpots.
There are Free Spins too; three, four or five scatter symbols on the reels will award 8, 20 – or an incredible 100 Free Spins, respectively. When the Free Spins bonus is in play, any payline win that comes up will be doubled, too. And players can retrigger the Free Spins if more scatters come up – with the maximum available an astonishing 1,000 Free Spins!
There’s also a Bonus Game, which kicks in when a set number of points are collected; bonus points are awarded when the bonus symbol appears on the fifth reel.
Once the Bonus Game is live, you can reach the treasure by attempting to help an in-game character navigate his way across the tiles to land more prizes – but beware, if the character plunges through the tiles the Bonus will come to an end.
Care for a spot of Egyptian adventuring, then? There are no mummy’s curses here – just plenty of intriguing ways to land that treasure…
