The count of slots using the same theme is higher by the day. The question is just, which one turns out better and more interesting than the previous one? Joining the club of Egyptian themed slots is Books and Temples by Gamomat, a 5 reel slot, with 3 rows and 20 paylines. The game offers some pretty unique and well-paying features that make this game sound quite promising.
Egyptian themed slots are this popular because not only is the theme itself interesting, but it has so many motives and markings that can be incorporated in the games. The games are this way rich in history and tell a thing or two about the culture. It is hard to make the same theme interesting, over and over again. The designers have to focus on making a unique style and features in order to gain appeal.
The design of this game does have its charm. The designers have succeeded in making this game something refreshing to see. The background is a blurry temple with golden poles and vases. The desert and a pyramid can be seen through the entrance that is hugged with palm trees. It's the same components that we see in every game, but they are done in a different style. The soundtrack is calming and a bit mysterious contributing to the look of a temple that holds who knows what inside.
The graphics are great as expected and the characters are differently designed from the ones usually seen. The reels are covered in hieroglyphs with symbols that include the regular colorful royals designed according to theme, the Scarab on a golden ring, a sphinx, the Bastet, an Anubis statue, and a necklace with the Eye of Ra. The main character is Horus and acts as an expanding wild. The game also has two scatter symbols in the form of the temple and the book.
The payouts are amazing as well and they go as high as 1000x the stake. The player can bet a minimum of 0,05 and a maximum of 100 coins per spin. This is a high volatility game so buckle up for an exciting ride. Taking that into consideration, the 96,10% RTP is set at a decent level.
The features in the game are both creative and pay fairly high. First to mention is the main character Horus, that when appearing expands to fill the entire reel. This provides a bigger chance for the player to score a winning combination.
There are two different Free Spins features in the game. The first is the Books Free Spins feature that is triggered by landing 3 to 5 book scatter symbols. The player gets 10 free spins and a chance to trigger them again. Before the free spins start to play out, a symbol is chosen randomly, and every time that symbol appears during the round it expands over the reel.
The second is the 12 Temples Free Spins feature that is triggered by landing 3 to 5 temple scatter symbols. The player gets 12 free spins and a chance to get additional ones. Every time a Horus symbol appears 1, 2 or 3 times on the reels, the player gets 1, 3, or 12 free spins. The Horus symbol can expand during the feature as well and it can also turn symbols into the next high-value one.
The game has lived up to expectations. The design and interpretation of the theme are amazing. The game stands out appearance-wise and the features have a certain uniqueness about them too. Thanks to them, the payouts are great which is the most important part, after all. The game definitely did not disappoint and is worth trying out.
