Ancient Egypt is a Pragmatic Play-powered video slot set in the time of pharaohs and pyramids. The ancient gods of Egypt light your way, leading you to grand prizes and lucrative bonuses. The choice of music is quite lovely, a perfect mix of mysterious and upbeat to keep players intrigued while they play while they search for the golden scarab which will unlock the game’s mysteries.
So, if you are ready to travel back in time to the era of Cleopatra, Pragmatic Play’s 2018 release allows you to do just that. Along the way, you will discover several bonuses, like a bonus game in which you choose between three chests and a free spins feature with an expanding symbol. The maximum possible win is a stunning 5,000x your total bet.
The symbols are a wonderful combination of playing card royals and icons representing Egyptian mythology. 10, J, Q, K and A are still bright and colourful but have additional decorations added to make them fit in a little better with the theme. Alongside them, the Eye of Horus keeps watching over your actions, the golden ankh gifted by the gods to grant eternal life to the pharaoh, the statue of Anubis carrying out his will, and a beautiful female pharaoh ruling over her people. But the greatest treasure you can find are the golden scarabs.
This is a 5-reel, 3-row title that offers 10 fixed paylines. It uses the traditional layout you see in many other Pragmatic Play releases.
The spin button is in the bottom right corner, with Autoplay right beneath it and bet levels on its left and right. Opening the bet level allows you to manually change coins per line and the coin value that can range from $0.01 up to $0.50. The maximum bet is worth $50. The slot is configured for 10 fixed paylines.
Wins are granted for collecting three or more identical symbols following the 10 fixed paylines left to right. The only exception to this is Golden Scarab Wild Scatter and the expanded symbol during the free spins special feature.
The golden scarab stands for both Wild and Scatter and can substitute for any other symbol. Hitting three or more scarabs activates a bonus game in which gamblers pick between three chests. Said chests can have a small cash prize, a big cash prize or a free spins bonus with an expanding symbol.
Players get 10 free spins. Before any of them are played, a random icon from the paytable is chosen to be the expanding symbol. This expanding symbol will cover its entire reel vertically and pay even in non-adjacent positions. Hitting three more golden scarabs while the extra turns are already active rewards 10 more free spins.
The Pragmatic Play release is available on Android and iOS devices, so you can choose to take your Egyptian adventure on the go. If you are stuck in public transit or on a long trip, you can lean back and play a few spins while waiting.
