A unique Egyptian-themed slot is rare to see, which is why Play’n GO made an effort and released Doom of Egypt, something refreshing in the sea of similar games. It is a 5 reel slot, with 3 rows and 10 ways for the player to land a winning combination. The features are interesting and result in amazing payouts that are mostly unexpected. It is a game to consider taking a look at.
The providers of this game are known for making basic seem innovative and new. The designers kept all the trademarks of a classic Egyptian-themed slot but made a few differences to the design to make the game stand out from the crowd.
The background is a faded bluish color with stone poles that carry different drawings and hieroglyphs. There are also pots with plants and the dark reels with a golden rim to contrast them. The reels also carry many hieroglyphs which isn’t commonly seen by this type of slot game. The soundtrack is mysterious and calming music accompanied by thrilling sound effects which make it interesting. Everything is designed to remind of the ancient city and its wonders.
The graphics are very good as expected from the provider with some classic Egyptian symbols. The low-value ones are the regular royals with golden details. The game also features Anubis and three Egyptian kings, Ramses, Thutmose, and Amenhotep. The scarab beetle serves as the scatter symbol that activates the bonus round and as the wild that substitutes all other symbols.
Aside from great looks, the game has good gameplay as well. The player can bet a minimum of 0,10 and a maximum of 50 coins per spin. It is a high volatility game with the RTP set at an average 96,2%, which isn’t a bad offer. Thanks to the variety of features, the payouts are great and go as high as 5000x the stake.
The games' great design is accompanied by some even better features. The first is the free spins feature that is triggered by landing 3 or more scatter symbols. The player then gets 10 free spins and a special expanding symbol is chosen for the round. Whenever the symbol lands on the reels it expands to ensure a good payout. The possibilities are much greater this way since one symbol covers an entire reel. The free spins round can be retriggered the same way as in the first place.
Another great thing about the scatter symbol is that it awards a certain multiplier according to the number of times it appears on the reels. The multipliers go as high as 200x the stake.
There is also a gamble feature that is a classic by a lot of slot games. It can be activated if the winnings are less than 2500 coins. When activated the player gets a face-down card. To double the winnings the player can choose the color or to quadruple them they can choose the cards symbol. The process can be repeated up to 5 times and if choosing wrong the player gets nothing.
Overall, the game has shown itself to be creative and exciting. The designers made a commonly used theme interesting and different from the rest. The game is also very playable, full of surprises and great features. The volatility of this game is quite high, so prepare yourself for a wild ride. The payouts are frequent and can surprise the player especially during the free spins round. If you are one of the players who enjoy an Egyptian theme and great potential wins then this is the game to try.
