Let’s face it, Egypt is a pretty common place to be when you’re playing online slot games. Plenty of creators have used this as their inspiration, but that shouldn’t put you off playing the Side City Studios entry into this genre.
In fact, it doesn’t go for the traditional Egyptian feel, instead opting to go for a modern neon presentation. And there are some good elements here, too.
There are five reels spinning in this game, but instead of having paylines you have 243 ways to win.
You get to choose from a variety of coin values ranging from one cent to two dollars. The game requires you to bet as if there were 40 paylines, so bear that in mind.
The wild is a scarab beetle and it replaces everything else that might crop up. Whenever you get a winning combination, you automatically get a re-spin. You will get more scarab wilds at the beginning of this spin, too. Keep on winning and you get more re-spins as a result. If you manage to trigger four wins in a row, you’ll trigger the Pharaoh feature.
We mentioned the Pharaoh feature above, and this gives you some free spins upon getting four wins and re-spins in a row. You get five additional wilds in this feature, and you have three Pharaohs in the counter. One is taken away every time you get a non-successful spin. That means as long as you keep winning, the free spins just keep on coming!
The addition of the re-spins and the Pharaoh feature make this game a little different from the rest. When you get a free spins feature that could literally keep going forever, it is definitely worth a better look, wouldn’t you say?
We also liked the neon element of this game – a feature that is in complete contrast with the Egyptian theme. Full marks to the software creator in this instance then, as the 243 ways to win game really does meet our expectations. We’ve seen more complex games for sure, but there is something about this one that really makes it well worth a try in real play mode.
