Visiting ancient empires is not as easy as one would think. However, Microgaming is opening a door of Ancient Egypt to us with their 2018 slot Wild Scarabs. It’s no secret that many treasures are still hidden under the pyramids, but what are the riches that await us in this 5-reel video slot? Wild Scarabs offers 243 ways to win paying when you land matching symbols on adjacent reels left to right.
The most important symbol of the game, Scatter, is represented by the Golden Amulet. The Golden Scarab is the game’s Wild substituting for all symbols except for Scatter. Anubis and Horus are the gods that provide big wins. Ankh and the Eye of Ra offer generous payouts, while icons of lower value are six shiny, colourful gems– red, yellow, green, blue, dark blue and purple. And even though the Egyptian theme is over-used when it comes to video slots, this game stands out with three fantastic features: Free Spins, Wild Deal and Stashed Wilds.
Play Wild Scarabs
Since this game doesn’t have fixed paylines, have no worries that your gameplay will be interrupted due to smaller wins. Also, have in mind that you can land a big one often and that Scatter offers 100x the bet for five of a kind. Despite the worn-out theme, this 5-reel 3-row video slot can earn you wins of up to 104,000 coins. Just take into consideration the above-mentioned features and set your bet.
How to Play
Wild Scarabs can be played from a minimum bet of $0.20 up to a maximum of $60 per spin.
To land one of the possible 243 wins, collect at least three matching icons on successive reels. Only Scatter provides you with small fortunes if you collect two of a kind.
Hit the Spin or Autoplay button to set the reels in motion and start the centuries-old search for hidden Egyptian treasures.
Strategy & Tips
In order to trigger the Free Spins feature, you need to land at least three Scatters. You are granted 10 free spins that can increase your chances of getting prizes. During freebies, all Wilds from non-winning spins will be collected. Once you gather three Wilds, the Stashed Wild feature will be triggered. The Stashed Wild feature adds collected Wilds to the reels to create a guaranteed win.
The Wild Deal feature is a bit trickier and it can be activated only in the base game on a non-winning spin and only if Wild lands on the reel 3. The feature will add up to 4 Wilds to random positions to form a guaranteed win.
By providing products playable across all devices, desktops, laptops, mobile phones and tablets, Microgaming has proved its quality. It’s no different with Wild Scarabs. With decent graphics and a mysterious background music, the game will keep the players hypnotized for hours.
