Come to the land of pharaohs, camels and ancient Gods. Return in time to the lands of Ancient Egypt and bask in the beauty of a civilization that has since disappeared from the world. But while only remnants of its legacy remain in real life, you can see it in full glory in the Habanero 2018 re-release of the original. With gorgeous symbols and a relaxing, distinctly Egyptian soundtrack, Egyptian Dreams Deluxe is a must-play for any fan of the theme.
The background image is gorgeous, depicting a large staircase leading up to a massive temple with a pair of sphinx guarding it on each end. You can see reeds and palm trees slowly swinging back and forth in tune to the blowing wind, adding to the appeal. The slot is played on a 5x3 playing field with 243 ways to win and the possibility to expand the reels by unlocking the blocked off tiles above. Alongside expanding reels, players also have access to a re-spin and free spins.
Symbols are split into higher and lower paying icons. The most valuable symbols are Pharaoh Wild, Cleopatra, a sphinx, an eye of Horus and an Egyptian styled boat. A papyrus scroll and a camel, a bald cat and an ankh, and finally, a scarab and an Egyptian statue are the lowest paying icons. Wilds can replace all symbols except for Scatters and are used to destroy stone blocks. Pyramids only behave like Scatters during free spins. They are used to trigger a re-spin and free spins.
This is a 5-reel, 3-row game which can expand to be a 5-reel, 5-row title with the Expanding Reels special feature. The same applies to the ways to win that can increase from 243 up to 3,125. Beneath the reels, you will find all the important UI elements like the bet level, coin value, Spin button, max bet and Autoplay. Wins are awarded for collecting three or more identical symbols from left to right on adjacent reels.
When a Wild appears beneath a stone block, the pharaoh will smack it with his sceptre shattering it and expanding the playing field. When all the stone blocks are cleared out, gamblers win 30 free spins.
Another way to get free spins is to collect two, three, four or five Pyramid Scatters which will grant 10, 15, 20 or 30 free turns, respectively. If you only get two to four pyramids, a single re-spin is played first with all Scatters locked in place giving you a second chance to get additional pyramids and more free spins, as a result. It is possible to retrigger the special feature during free spins.
Egyptian Dreams Deluxe is available for both desktop and mobile devices, meaning you can play it at home on your desktop or on the go outside of your house.
