Sands of Fortune Slot

Sands of Fortune is a classic tale of adventure and derring-do on the Egyptian sands, featuring all of your favourite elements from Egyptian themed slots and an even more recognizable font! We’ve seen all kinds of takes on the Ancient Egyptian theme, from spiritual to historical, but we don’t think anything can beat a bit of tomb-robbing. Sorry, ‘Archaeology’. So can you brave the scorching heat, fiendish traps, spooky tomb and scary snakes to claim the treasure, or will you be joining the pharaoh in their vault? Let’s take a look at our Sands of Fortune slot game review.


We’ll be honest, the background to the reels in this pokie isn’t the greatest you’ll ever see, and Sands of Fortune doesn’t match up to some of the latest slots. It fits perfectly with the theme because it’s simply a colossal image of some iconic Egyptian hieroglyphs presented in a traditional format. At the same time, the reels look as if they’re on strips of old papyrus parchment. The animations and sounds in this game are pretty limited, but not every game has to be a cinematic masterpiece! The high-value symbols are the standard royal cards, while the lower value symbols are familiar Ancient Egyptian images such as pyramids, scarabs, scorpions and the eye of Horus.

There isn’t much to talk about in terms of the gameplay, which is pretty traditional, with five reels and three rows with nine pay lines to play on. You can bet up to £/$/€90 on every spin in this slot, and with prizes in Sands of Fortune as high as 2,000x your bet for five Aces or 1000x for five kings, there’s plenty of cash to be played for. That’s nothing compared to the jackpot, activated by landing five jackpot symbols, which pays a massive 25,000x your stake! The RTP in this slot is very low at 93.7%, so you will need to hit those big combos often!


The significant wins are found in the main game, so there aren’t many bonuses to add to that big jackpot, but there is a free spin round to enjoy. Land just three of the stone tablet scatters to grab your share, and you can re-activate that same bonus from within the free spins again if you land more tablets. There is also a wild in this game that performs the usual wild duties of substituting for any other symbol on the board to complete combos, which can help you build up some serious prizes, though it doesn’t work for the bonus or the jackpot symbols.

CasinoNZ Verdict

The Sands of Fortune slot game is a pokie with historical ambition, showcasing the beauty of Egyptian hieroglyphs rather than the usual views of sand, tombs and mummies. The big news in this slot is the massive jackpot that stands at 25,000x your stake, but there are also high paying symbols down the line. There aren’t many bonuses, but who can say no to free spins when the prizes are so generous?

Why not try the following titles for something new: Pachinko, Mega Money Rush, Cricket Star Scratch or Vegas Downtown Blackjack.
