The slot is very well designed with stunning pyramids in the background and the stylish regal reels bedecked in deep purple gives the slot a real royal theme. The symbols include the usual playing card symbols from Ace through to Jack coupled with a wide variety of Egyptian hieroglyphs. Among the hieroglyphics players can expect to see an ankh cross, the falcon god Horus, the eye of Ra and the gold scarab beetle. The highest paying symbol is the scarab beetle which will pay out x5, x10 or x15 of the players stake for landing 3, 4 or 5 on a pay line respectively. The wild is the golden cat goddess Bastet, the wild will only make an appearance on the three middle reels and whenever this symbol lands it expands to fill the whole reel if the expansion provides a winning combination. The scatter in Rise of Egypt is depicted by the pyramid and when players land 3, 4 or 5 in the same spin they are awarded with x2, x15 or x50 of their stake and activate the free spins feature, where they are awarded twelve free spins and better still the expanding wilds are also in play during the free spins round.
Every time a scatter lands during the free spins, another spin is added onto the players total and there is a maximum of thirty five free spins in total to win. When the wild is in play the symbols will also upgrade and what may seem like an ordinary win can turn into something truly amazing and incredibly rewarding. Players will have to be patient though as there are times when the wins will appear as dry as the Sahara Desert but get lucky and get on a roll which includes the wilds and free spins feature and the wins will build very quickly. Although there are literally hundreds of slots with this style and theme on offer, Rise of Egypt is a good example of this genre and combines top quality images complete with explosive bonuses.
Egyptian Theme Slot
For those sceptics that think Egypt and all things related has really been done to death, the outstanding design and features makes this a slot that really should be played. There are already hundreds of similarly themed slots available – Rise of Egypt is a pretty good example of the genre though, combining high-end imagery with a potentially explosive bonus offering. Even if you think the Egyptian theme has been done to death, the quality mix of design and features make Rise of Egypt worth considering. When we tried the slot out, we found that it was rare to land more than three converted symbols, however eve so we did find our winnings to be in the range of x80 and even x100 of our bet on more than one occasion.
So, just imagine how much more players could win if they were lucky enough to land five wilds amongst the free spins! However, it would be fair to say that these wins didn’t seem real as it was easy to activate the Rise of Egypt free spins. Personally, we felt that this slot could be thought of as the little sister to Play N’ Go Legacy of Egypt slot and although the wins are more in Legacy it is far more expensive to play. Both slots provide frequent free sins, stunning traditionally styled symbols, a great soundtrack and lots of action and we highly recommend giving both a spin.
