In recent years IGT also latched on to the success and popularity of ancient Egyptian themed slot machines. With it next installment it introduces Crown of Egypt to the virtual gambler. It’s loaded with revolutionary graphics and pin-dropping audio. It features 5 reels, 40 paylines and up to 1024 multi ways to win. This feature also happens to be the star of the show. The game plays and looks superb on the latest mobile devices. Will this slot be the jewel in your crown?
With a payout percentage of 95.8% it does offer the player something to shoot for in terms of cash rewards. The total jackpot payout is 5,000 coins. One thing I’ve noted about IGT if compared to the NetEnt, Rival and Betsoft games is that its games do not offer loads of payouts but they’re always big payouts. Although I haven’t won anything spectacular when I played this video slots it offers loads of free spins and then there’s its Multiway Extra Pays. To unlock the free spins requires some patience. If you manage it’s certainly worth the effort.
Ancient Egypt is often described as a land of mysticism, exotic women and then there’s the iconic pharaohs. If you’ve read Wilbur Smith’s book (Rivergod) on ancient Egypt then this slots will be right up your ally. By way of audio the usual flutes and maracas/drums provide the usual fanfare if it pays. To say the least nothing new but reassuringly familiar.
The coin range is huge. It starts off win a modest 0.01 up to 100. Low rollers can bet from as little as $0.8 and up to $400 per spin for high rollers. Can’t say that I’m impressed with the minimum bet per spin.
I’ve mentioned that the MutliWay bonus feature is the show stopper in this game. Reason being it makes an otherwise medium volatility slots bearable and when it appears it pays out quite well. Some payouts can be as high as 50x your stake which is really not bad to be honest.
- MultiWay Xtra Pays: This feature can be confusing but it’s unique since it not only pays out from left to right but up and down as well. To accomplish a multi-way payline it kicks in when the same icon appears on 4 or 5 rows. You then have to count each of the symbols on each of the columns and multiply them together. The more the multiway Xtra wins pop up the more payouts it offers.
- Free Spins: If you land two Bonus icons any place on the centre reels the free spins bonus game is activated. For 2 icons you’ll receive 10 free games, 15 free spins for 3 and 20 free spins for 4. Although the free spins can be re-triggered or so I’ve been told it’s extremely difficult to do so. If you’re fortunate enough to re-trigger it up to 130 free spins can be won with a multiplier of 500x your bet. Work on 10x up to 40x your stake. When it comes to its re-triggers this is one stingy ancient Egyptian themed slots.
With a relatively high payout percentage you can give Crown of Egypt a bash. The free spins bonus and its multiway xtra pays spices things up a bit and levels the playing field considerably. If you want to hit the multiway xtra spins in the long run keep your bets down to a minimum because they don’t appear often. The mechanics of this slots is pretty similar to Treasures of Troy. I consider it one of the best IGT slots releases yet.
