With Ancient Egypt, Pragmatic Play doesn’t seem to have set their sights very high. A slot machine that tells you that it’s about Ancient Egypt right from the title, it’s not going to offer a single unique symbol on its reels, though they did make a bit of an extra effort with the features.
You get only 10 active lines in Ancient Egypt, which is a 5 reel game. While you play it, you will get a chance to win as much as $25,000 out of its best combinations, plus there will be features such as scatters, wilds and bonus features that will result in big potential payouts or free spins.
Betting and Prizes
With just 10 fixed lines to cover, the slot will let you modify other areas, in order to get the wager to an amount that you’re comfortable with. You might go for the coin value, which is anywhere between $0.01 and $0.50, or you might pick between 1 and 10 coins for each of those active lines. Your bets will have 10 to 100 coins in them, while their value can be between $0.10 and $50.
Moving on to the payouts that Ancient Egypt can deliver, there are two ways to get the slot’s jackpot, whose value goes up to $25,000. One is through a regular combo of five symbols, the ones showing Cleopatra. Second, it’s through the bonus game, which pays up to 500x total bet, amounting to the same value. RTP wise, the figures amount to an average percentage of 96.13%.
Ancient Egypt Slot Features
A single feature symbol has been introduced in Ancient Egypt, to fulfill all your needs, and it bears the image of the Scarab. You will use it as a wild symbol and as a scatter, depending on how it appears and what other symbols are on the same line as it is. When it can, especially when it’s the only one of its kind on a line, it will substitute for missing symbols and will form combinations with the ones that are present.
As a scatter, the symbol will appear in random positions, and it will reward you when three or more such Scarabs are visible. Rewards range between 1x and 50x total bet.
With the same 3+ Scarabs positioned in view, in addition to a cash prize you also get into the bonus game. There are three items that you have to choose from inside, and they will hide the following rewards. One of them will have a feature with free spins, another will offer a low reward of 1x total bet, while the last one gives you anywhere between 10x and 500x total bet.
If the free spins are the ones triggered, there will be 10 rounds offered, where one symbol is chosen at random to expand on the reels where It appears. Additional free spins may be obtained with the help of more scattered Scarabs.
Theme & Design
Ancient Egypt is pretty clear about the theme it offers us, it doesn’t try to hide anything. You simply get a look at the Egyptian kingdom and some of the elements that are often chosen in slot machines to represent its culture. The Scarab, the image of Cleopatra, of the god Anubis, an Ankh and the Eye of Ra, these are all the themed symbols that you will find. Finally, you also have five playing cards.
Ancient Egypt doesn’t compare too well with any of the other slots that you will see released right now. While others try to create exciting experiences for players, with unique themes, Pragmatic Play offers a completely forgettable slot. The only decent thing about it is the RTP, of 96.13%.
