Egypt is always a good place to set a slot game, and here Play’n Go have come up with Legacy of Egypt, a game that delves into the mysterious world of the ancient Egyptians, with powerful Gods and wealthy leaders included. But how does the game deliver for the average slot player today?
Presented over a standard 5x3 setup with a decent 30 paylines, this slot is plays well and looks fantastic across all your devices. Play from 0.40 EUR to 100 EUR or Bitcoin equivalent but be aware that the game is pretty volatile so might take a while to build up - but when it goes, boy does it go.
Coming with a great free spins feature that includes up to a 10x multiplier and acts as trigger for the Pyramid Spins feature, which brings more spins and another fixed multiplier of up to 10x on each win.
The look of an ancient land
A lovely looking slot that hits the spot for this theme, the graphics are high-definition and the animations are commendable. Lower-value symbols are a predictable range from the playing card deck, from 10 to Ace.
High-value symbols across the reels feature the stars of the ancient Egyptian world, including Sekhmet (Goddess of sun, fire, plagues, healing and war), Sobek (God of crocodiles), Anubis (God of embalming and the dead), Ra (Sun God), the Queen of the Nile (Cleopatra) and the Pharaoh (ancient Egypt’s most powerful chap). As the highest value symbol of all, the Pharaoh gives you 10 times your stake for 5 across a payline.
The wild in the game comes in the form of the scarab and behaves as you might expect by substituting all other symbols across the reels to form wins, except for the scatter. The wild will pay out 16.66x your stake should you get five across a payline.
Scatter-wise, we have a pyramid with the evil eye on the side, a pretty important symbol that will trigger the Wheel of the Gods feature when you get three or more across the reels. A spinning wheel will appear that will choose the number of spins you’ll get, and ranges from 3 to a huge 20 free spins.
When the spins being the multiplier gets applied, these range again from 2x to 10x! Getting three or more scatter during this feature will retrigger it for an infinite amount of times, bringing with it an additional 20 free spins.
The bonus features to watch for
Watch out for two wild scatters that can appear during any one of the free spins, as this will trigger the Pyramid Spins feature. Any multiplier active on the spin that took you into this feature will be applied, then the Wheel of the Gods spins to reward you with from 3 to 8 Pyramid Spins.
Get lucky and land three wild scatters on a free spin the Pyramid Spins feature gets triggered with double values on the Wheel of the Gods. As a result, you’ll be eligible for potentially winning 16 Pyramid Spins. And again, the original multiplier added to the winning spin will be carried over and applied throughout.
Legacy of Egypt is highly volatile, potentially paying out up to 5000x your stake on every feature spin. The theme is not to everyone’s taste, but the graphics and soundtrack are decent enough and not offensive. We suggest you have a look at this one, as if you get a roll it can really pay well.
