Enter an ancient tomb of the Egyptian pharaohs and discover riches beyond your wildest imagination. Pragmatic Play is taking you to an unforgettable adventure, where you will meet the beautiful Cleopatra and take advantage of the Free Spins feature with expanding symbols, which cover entire reels and pay even on non-adjacent positions. Visually impressive, the 2018 release offers the maximum possible payout of 5,000x the bet.
The depths of pyramids can be extremely dark, but, fortunately for you, the reels are lit up by two fires, placed on the both sides of the 5x3 reel grid. Your main task will be to discover the Golden Scarabs, which act both as Scatters that trigger the Free Spins feature, and Wilds that substitute for all other icons.
Apart from the Golden Scarabs, both Wild and Scatters that can reward you up to 200x the bet, there are plenty of other familiar symbols that can be found in video slots with a similar topic. The beautiful Cleopatra is the highest-paying regular icon, offering 500x the bet for the maximum combination. The tomb is guarded by Anubis, and you will also come across the Golden Ankh and the all-seeing Eye of Chorus. Even the low-value playing cards are decorated with symbols from ancient Egypt.
Despite the fact that all Egyptian tombs are packed with traps so as to guard the vast treasures buried with the pharaohs, the Pragmatic Play product is not that dangerous, since the rules of the game are as simple as possible. The 2018 release features 5 reels, 3 rows and benefits from 10 fixed paylines, which pay left to right, starting from the leftmost reel. High-value symbols pay even for two of a kind, while low-paying playing cards will start paying when you land three or more matching symbols on a payline. Bet as low as $0.10 and as high as $50 per single spin.
If you want to spin the reels faster, just press and hold the Space bar on your keyboard. Once you get tired of hitting the Spin button, visit Autoplay to activate up to 100 automatic spins.
Land three or more Golden Scarabs on the reels to trigger the Free Spins feature and get 10 freebies. It is possible to retrigger the feature. All you need to do is land 3 or more extra Scatters during freebies.
Before the feature starts, one of the regular symbols will be randomly chosen to become the special expanding symbol, which will expand to cover the entire reel whenever there is a possibility to form a winning combination. Furthermore, the special symbol will pay anywhere on the reels, it does not have to land on successive reels.
Even though the theme of the 2018 release is ancient history, the Pragmatic Play title is pretty up-to-date when it comes to modern technologies and players can enjoy Ancient Egypt Classic across all devices. Thanks to the quality of the game, the reels run as smoothly as possible on any compatible gadget.
