Ancient Egypt never seems to get old, when it comes to slot games at least. That is why, Play'n GO provided us with Dawn of Egypt, another impressive slot game and a great trip to Egypt. The slot game has a classic layout with 5 reels, 3 rows, and 10 active winning ways. The appearance of the game is quite unique and thanks to the features, the game is adventurous as well. It is definitely one to recommend.
The players who are fans of the, by now classic theme, should for sure take a look at this release. There are hundreds of games that are inspired by Ancient Egypt and they all seem to blend in with one another. Originality is in this case very appreciated since it is not seen that often. The providers managed to give the theme their own touch and added some exciting features to keep the game interesting the whole the way to the prize.
The main scene of events is the classic one of a temple with all the precious things it must hold. Temples were used to bury pharaohs and their most worthy belongings, which is exactly why this represents the perfect slot theme. The background is covered with gold details and hieroglyphs engraved in the stone. There are also 2 Horus statues guarding the reels from both sides.
The symbols are well-designed and include the royals that represent the low paying symbols. Then there are scorpions, snakes, lotus flowers, Bastet, and Horus. The wild symbol comes in the form of a scarab and the scatter as a pyramid with the sacred eye on it. The soundtrack is fitted for the theme since it is very calming and also quite mysterious.
This is a medium to high volatility game, so anything can come from it. Players can bet a minimum of 0,10 and a maximum of 100 coins per spin. The RTP is set at a reasonable 96,23%, which is great considering the variance of the game. The payouts should satisfy as well and will go as high as 1000 times the stake in a single spin.
The features are classic ones but there are a few creative details to them. Just like any other, this game features a wild symbol that replaces all other symbols except the scatter. The scatter symbol plays a bit of a bigger role since it opens quite a few possibilities for the player.
When the scatter symbol lands at least 3 times on the reels, the Free Spins feature is triggered. The player is then presented with the Wheel of the Gods that they get to spin. This is where a bit of luck would be great since the wheel can award anything from 3 to 20 free spins. Every free spin has a randomly selected high paying symbol that will replace all lower value high paying ones which excludes the royals.
Another great thing about free spins is that every scatter symbol turns into a wild symbol. Not only does it replace other symbols in creating winning combinations, but when it appears 2 or more times on the reels it triggers the Pyramid Spins feature. The player gets up to 4 free spins for every triggering symbol, which means that a maximum of 20 can be reached. The feature can be triggered more than ones and once it finishes the player still has the remaining regular free spins to play out.
Overall, the game has definitely impressed and will be liked by many players. The lovers of the theme will appreciate the creative and unique design. Appearance-wise, the game is one of the better ones out there. The features are great as well and will bring a lot of joy to the player. The game is exciting and provides decent payouts which is everything a player can ask for.
