There is plenty of Egyptian imagery in this game, with the reels framed by ancient Egyptian symbols such as the ankh and cobra for example. The symbols are also based on Egyptian icons, with the cobra, eagle and scarab being the lower-paying symbols, as landing 3, 4 or 5 of these will gain you anywhere between 2 and 10 coins. The higher value symbols are represented by the Cleopatra and Pharaoh icons with five Pharaoh icons on a payline paying out 50 coins, whereas five Cleopatra symbols will land 25 coins.
Thankfully, you do not need to be a proficient ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics master to operate this online slots game as it is a fairly straightforward game to learn. The reels do not spin in this game – the symbols cascade down the screen to fill the reels, and the pyramid form of the symbols really adds to the Egyptian theme. There is an autoplay feature that will keep cascading those reels up to 500 times without the need to keep hitting the play button, which you can cancel at any time.
NetEnt have decided to try something a bit different with this game and the bonus features as they have left out a free spins feature, but instead, they have included what is called an Avalanche Reels feature. This works by cascading symbols down the reels and when a winning combination lands, those symbols are replaced with new ones until there are no more winning combinations. Plus, for every win during the Avalanche Reels feature, your winnings will be multiplied by 1x, although the multiplier resets when your winning run comes to an end.
NetEnt’s game designers have done a great job with the graphics and sound of this game, and it is the little details that make this game stand out. There is a chance to win a jackpot of 3,600,000 coins, and that is going to be tempting to gamblers of all types, although the lack of free spins or other bonus games may come as a disappointment to traditionalists.
