Age of Egypt
I love an Egyptian themed slot game. Playtech are the creator of some of our favourites like their Irish Luck slot game so we were looking forward to taking the Age of Egypt slot for a spin.
Look and Feel
There’s a certain charm to the styling of the Age of Egypt, the graphics are high-quality, particularly those of the icons but there’s also simplicity to the look of the game and a slightly 80s vibe. Here the reels are set against an early evening, with a blue and pink cloudy sky over the desert sands and a group of pyramids. If you like an Egyptian theme, you should also try out the Pharoah’s Treasure slot by the way- another game by Playtech.
The background music is rather enticing and hypnotic traditional pipes combined with electronic sounds of play.
Age of Egypt Slot Game Play
Age of Egypt is a 3 rows, 5 reel and 20 pay-line journey into the ancient past, similar to other Playtech games like the Sacred Stones slot machine and others.
The elaborate high value icons of the game are a cracked pottery eye of Ra-a traditional symbol of protection, a falcon statue, the symbol of the god Horus and a scarab beetle made of gems. The lower value icons are the Ace through ten of the card deck made to look like jewels.
The game’s Wild is a statue of Tutankhamun’s head and this icon subs for all icons except the Scatter and Bonus, (if you’re lucky enough to land five of this symbol, you’ll win a 10,000 coin reward).
The Scatter is Queen Cleopatra and the game’s Bonus is the a dog-headed god Anubis staring out at you from his statue.
Off the Leash!
The Anubis bonus is triggered by landing 3 or more of those Anubis Bonus icons in a row from left to right across a pay-line. You’ll head into the tomb of Anubis to pick from a selection of gold-wrapped mummies. Try and reveal cash prizes- you’ll get as many chances to pick as the number of Anubis heads that triggered the bonus in the first place.
The Treasure of the Pharaohs
The other side game is the Royal Treasury Free Games feature.
Just land 3 Cleopatra Scatters to trigger ten free spins and if you get lucky in this mode you’ll get a welcome x3 multiplier.
You can re-trigger these too, with an additional 3 Scatters for more spins- or activate the Anubis Bonus feature- a feature within a feature if you like.
The Age of Egypt slot is a swish addition to a long list of Ancient Egypt game with a retro vibe and chilled out atmosphere. It’s a solid slot that has a multiplier to keep you interested.
Worth a visit for fans of the ancient Egyptian slot genre.
