Ancient Egypt, the era shrouded in mystery and intrigue. There’s little wonder why so many video slot titles are set in that time piece.
The history, the mythology, the Sphinx and of course the pyramids are some of the world’s greatest mysteries so let’s see what we can find in BGaming’s title.
As usually though, be careful, for we don’t know what dangers could be lurking behind and around every corner and crevasse.
Let’s have a look and see if BGaming software does enough to set this title apart from the numerous other ancient Egyptian themed video slot games out there.
Theme & Symbols
The old Egyptian imagery is strong in this title, it’s all reflected in the background, the symbols and the music.
The play grid is made of stone bricks placed in the centre of an ancient tomb. Flanking the grid on the left and on the right are two impressive statues and just behind the grid lies the rest of the temple. The iconography used is extremely Egyptian, no reimaginings here whatsoever. It’s worth noting that we experienced a glitch where the background failed to load in. The game played fine and the symbols appeared where they had to.
The music in this title is good, it feels like it should be here. While it can tend to get a little repetitive it’s still a nice touch. The sound effects are okay, they don’t really feel like they fit into the overall aesthetic of the title.
Animations are good, the reels spin smoothly and unfortunately there is minimal animation on the symbols during winning spins.
To start, the low-paying icons are represented by playing card values. You’ll see J, Q, K and A appearing often and in a nice ancient Egyptian font.
Next up are the high-paying symbols and those are represented by a Wadjet, an Osiris Cross, a Cat and a Sarcophagus.
There is a Wild Symbol in this title that is represented by a Scarab Beetle. This icon can substitute any other basic icon in the game. They also play a part in triggering one of the game’s bonus features.
Betting Options & Features
Book of Pyramids is a 5-reel, 3-row video slot game that has a total of 9 paylines and a RTP of 97.13%.
Should you manage to land 3, 4 or 5 of the Scarab Wild symbol, you’ll be awarded with 11, 22 or 33 bonus spins respectively. Aim to make the most out of your spins by landing as many of these icons as possible.
While this title may not add much in terms or originality, it’s still a fun title. If you’re a fan of the era and setting, let BGaming take you on an adventure!
