Slot machines do not come much more explicit than Ancient Egypt Classic. This trip to the land of the Pharaohs was created by Pragmatic Play. It’s a basic 5-reel, 10-payline slot machine that features a bonus round that awards unlimited free spins with a special expanding symbol. Play on all devices between £ 10p and £ 50 per spin.
The colorful design is simple but well done. The frame is inside an old pyramid. The reels are flanked by richly designed pillars and flaming torches. There is a lot of exposed gold that gives the game a sense of decent luxury.
On the reels, you will see A to 10 playing cards. Hieroglyphs are more rewarding. The Eye of Horus and Ankh Cross both offer disbursements of up to 75 times your bet per payline. Then comes Anubis who pays up to 200 times your stake. The most rewarding symbol is Cleopatra (a dead ringer for Elizabeth Taylor). Receive 2, 3, 4 or 5 Egyptian Queen and win 1, 10, 100 or 500 times your stake.
The golden beetle is both wild and scattered. Send 3, 4 or 5 on the same turn and you will receive 2, 20 or 200 times the payment of your bet, in addition to triggering the Free Spins feature of the game. On offer here are 10 free spins.
Before they begin, a sarcophagus will open and a symbol will be chosen at random. This special symbol will develop magic properties during the presentation. When the special symbol is reached, it expands and fills the entire coil if the enlargement leads to a winning combination.
The special symbol does not even need to be on adjacent rolls to win a winner. Throw 3 beetles in the same turn and you will get another round of 10 free spins. These take place after the initial game has taken place. A new expanding special symbol is selected for these additional free spins. Finally, there is no limit to the number of free spins that you can win.
Ancient classical Egypt is not complicated. The brilliant and bold imagery is well done and the simple gameplay offers a lot of action. Variation wise, it is medium to high with maximum earnings of 5000 times your bet each round / round free.
This is a low frills take on a favorite theme. If you can not do without Cleo and my friends, then Ancient Egypt Classic is worth a visit.
