Pack your sunscreen because we’re off to Egypt, the land of endless mysteries. We’ll be heading to an ancient temple in an attempt to uncover secrets, and hopefully some valuable treasure, that the sands of time have hidden away. Developer Play’n GO is no stranger to the ancient Egyptian setting and they know what they’re doing when it comes to engaging game design so let’s have a look and see if they’ve managed to create a fresh new ancient Egyptian title.
Let’s take a deep dive into this video slot title and figure out what they did to make this game stand out on its own, what its features look like and much more. We’ll be giving you a detailed breakdown of everything this game entails.
Theme & Symbols
This game is very clearly inspired by ancient Egypt and the many other games that use that setting for their basis. There is a slight twist however, rather than the grid being situated in the desert surrounded by sand and saturated by a single colour palette, this game takes place inside an old temple meaning there are darker colours on display.
As we mentioned above, the game takes place in a dimly lit temple, there are torches resting in sconces attached to pillars which light up some areas of the room we find ourselves in. Sands from the outside have creeped their way in and hieroglyphics are etched into the walls and surfaces.
The grid is constructed out of beautiful marble and the reels have their own sets of hieroglyphics carved in them that stay in place while the reels spin. The first thing you’ll most likely notice when you first load up the game is the reel on the far right that is locked up tight, this comes into play later when certain criteria are met.
The music is fitting, there’s an ambiance that it creates which adds to the overall feel of the game. Sound effects are great, they do a good job pulling in your attention when something happens.
Animations are fine, it would’ve been nice to see a little more life in the symbols on winning spins but what is there already isn’t bad at all.
Overall, Play’n GO has done yet another fantastic job creating an immersive and good looking video slot game.
The symbols you’ll notice the most while you play the game are the low-paying ones, represented by the playing card values 10, J, Q, K and A.
The icons you’ll want to keep an eye out for are the high-paying ones, these ones are represented by classic ancient Egyptian imagery such as: an Ankh, a Bird, a Snake and a Queen or Goddess.
The Scarab is this game’s Wild symbol, it can substitute for any other common icon in the game and helps to build winning combos. Not only that but it doubles for the Scatter as well, it will pay anywhere on the reels and should you manage to land enough of them during a single spin you’ll activate a special gameplay feature.
