The Egyptian theme of slots is very popular at the moment and Snowborn has used this setting with inspiration from the popular 9 Masks of Fire game mechanics. Despite the title players will not be subjected to another torchlit tomb here, but instead, a view of the great pyramids under a full moon is the visual setting players can enjoy here
There are some interesting features included here, but will players discover the treasures of Egypt?
As mentioned, the backdrop is a night-time view of the pyramids of Giza, the blue sky is speckled with the glowing of distant stars as faint clouds whisp from the bases of the pyramids upwards. The moon is enlarged here and lights up the entire scene, a sea of sand stretches from the pyramids to the bottom of the screen where it meets a rocky outcrop that spreads from left to right. In the bottom-right corner of the screen sits another Egyptian landmark, the Sphinx watches as you spin the reels.
Inside the stone grid, players can expect to see 10 – A Royals as the lower value symbols, a nice feature here is that low-value symbols are blacked out so that the high-value ones really stand out. The higher value symbols consist of 4 deities of Egyptian mythology – Horus, Khnum, Anubis and Bastet and the Pharoah. There is also an Egyptian artefact Wild symbol that can pay out 250x the stake for a row of 5, a pyramid Scatter is also included in this slot that unlocks some interesting features.
Players can trigger an Energy Spins feature by landing at least 1 of the winning combinations, for each combination that lands in a single spin you will receive triggers the number of Energy Spins for each. Wild symbols can be used to complete triggering combinations and better still these can be retriggered during the feature providing even more ways to win. The triggering combinations are:
5 of a kind 10, J, Q = 5 Energy Spins.
4 of a kind K, A, Horus, Anubis = 4 Energy Spins.
3 of a kind Khnum, Bastet, Pharoah = 3 Energy Spins.
2 Wilds left to right = 2 Energy Spins.
There are no multipliers available during this feature, Egyptian Tombs auto spins through the received Energy Spins and all wins are added together and paid out at the end. This is not the way to getting huge wins here however it is still a nice feature.
There are more Free Spins available to win in Egyptian Tombs that include special symbols that can provide even bigger prizes with a max win of 1,000x the stake available. Landing a Scatter symbol in reels 1, 3 and 5 in a single spin triggers this bonus feature that awards 6 free spins. You will have to find the scroll that will spin once revealing the symbols that will come out on all 6 free spins, there is the chance to land Wilds on the 2nd and 4th reel during this feature.
Egyptian Fortunes has taken a spin on what is normally expected from these kinds of slots and it works well, the visual features are pleasant in particular the background. The bonus features give a lot of opportunities to land free spins which is great for players that like this feature, however, it is missing multipliers.
