The jackpot (non-progressive) that can be won on one spin is 1,733x your stake, to be honest this is not too shabby.

The standard customization options like Auto Play, graphics settings, Max Bet and coin denomination are at your finger tips.
The wild symbol is the Gilded Scarab, winning combinations are completed by it when it substitutes symbols adjacent to it bar the scatter icon.
When the wild symbols appears on the middle reel after a non-winning spin during the main game, the Wild Deal feature is triggered. Four extra wilds are added to the reels which guarantees you a payout.
