Age of Egypt Slots

You know, there is nothing like the allure of Ancient Egypt to draw people in. Even after all these years, slots still make use of the setting, and gamblers still love it to death. So when we heard Playtech was releasing a new game set in the lands of pharaohs and pyramids, we were thrilled. Age of Egypt is played on a 5x3 playing field with 20 flexible paylines and has a free spins bonus as well as a point and click feature.

How to Play

We expected better graphics, we have to admit, but even with the ones we have now, there is something captivating about the background image. You can see the pyramids off in the distance, while the sun is slowly setting, painting the sky with various shades of orange, pink and purple. There are not many fun animations which we can really talk about and the symbols, while not bad, are nothing that we have not seen in other titles that tackled the same theme. The user interface is quite useful allowing players to change settings and turn things on and off with relative ease. On the gameplay side of things, Age of Egypt offers gamblers a standard 5x3 playing field with 20 flexible paylines. This means that you can turn some or all paylines off in order to lower your minimum bet, at the price of decreasing your winning chances. Wins are awarded by collecting three or more identical symbols from left to right, which follow one of the currently active paylines. We found this game to have medium volatility, balancing between small, frequent payouts, and big, but rare jackpots.

Betting Options and Payout

Players can wager between $0.01 up to $10,000 per spin by changing the amount of active paylines and the bet per payline. This makes for a colossal bet spread that gives every gambler under the sun a wager they can set for themselves and bet without worrying. All the big wins will come from triggering the special features, as one gives you cash prizes outright and the other grants free spins and a multiplier on top of that. The largest win you can land is 10,000x the bet, which is amazing. The RTP for this title is 97.05%, which is above average for Playtech releases.

Symbols and Extra Features

Symbols include playing card royals 10, J, Q, K and A, alongside a scarab, a statue of a bird and the Eye of Horus. Special symbols include a female pharaoh as Scatter, a sarcophagus is Wild while Anubis represents the Bonus symbol. Collect three or more Scatter symbols to win 10 free spins with a 3x multiplier. On top of the multiplier, you can retrigger the feature and get ten more free spins with no limit on how many times you can keep doing this. The Anubis bonus can be activated while free spins are already active. Collecting three or more Anubis symbols in consecutive reels triggers his bonus. Gamblers will get three, four or five picks, which they spend selecting artefacts. Each artefact reveals a cash prize.

Our Verdict

We loved the theme and the gameplay, but we felt like the visuals could have used some more love. The main draw will no doubt be the insane winning potential you can get. Make sure to budget accordingly if you decide to play it and we wish you good luck!
