Egyptian Riches Video Slot
If you’ve been browsing through the great selection of WMS slots on offer here at PlayLogicGames.com then you may well have been wondering when you would come across a game with an Ancient Egyptian theme. After all, we say ourselves that no major slots developer’s selection is complete without such a game and now that’s been delivered thanks to Egyptian Riches. As you’ll often find when it comes to this genre, there’s a certain nostalgia factor to proceedings. While this one will never win the award for being WMS’s best looking game, it gives fans the chance to experience their iconic gameplay mechanics and a familiar theme, all in one handy package!
Betting and Playing
In true Ancient Egyptian fashion, Egyptian Riches is played over twenty win lines, just like games such as IGT’s Cleopatra. The lines aren’t the only thing in common either as the symbols consists of plenty of icons that we’ve all seen before, with various hieroglyphics, scarabs and statues putting in an appearance. The game’s logo is probably the most futuristic looking symbol of all and is suitably important, acting as the wild card and filling in for anything other than the queen.
Hit Scatters for the Scarab Pick a Win
The aforementioned queen, why may or may not be of the Nile, is the bonus symbol. Three or more of her face in view will trigger the Scarab Bonus and while seasoned WMS veterans may well be expecting free spins, this game actually takes things in a different direction. First up you’ll be presented with five different scarabs to pick one. Each hides a cash value based on your stake and the one you reveal is yours, no questions asked.
You’ll then move on to the next part of the game, where various precious items are being stored. This is another pick a win game and most of the time you’ll find instant cash once again. The ‘pick another’ symbol is particularly frustrating as you can keep on picking anyway, it’s just that this one doesn’t actually award any cash for doing so! Nevertheless, it is less annoying than the ‘collect’ icon which signifies that this stage of the game is at an end. Prizes from both rounds are totalled together and awarded and it’s then back to the base game to get back to your spinning ways.
It’s probably fair to say that this isn’t the best Ancient Egyptian slot out there but if you want the theme and the WMS name behind it then it’s certainly a good bet.
