Crown of Egypt Review
Once again we travel back to ancient Egypt all thanks to IGT, whose incredibly creative team came up with a fantastic slot called the Crown of Egypt. It might not be so popular as some other games, but it offers a lot of cool stuff, such as great graphics, pleasant sound effects, funny animations and innovative bonus features. It is always interesting to play a slot machine with mythology themes because developers usually decide to put a personal mark on some of the characters or features, which makes it a lot more interesting. Meet some of the ancient rulers of Egypt, check out the Pyramids and admire the Sphinx as you await the big prize. This game is available on mobile devices, although the desktop version does offer a more fulfilling and thus promising gaming experience.
Five reels, forty paylines and 1024 ways to win should be enough for everyone to make it to the top and win the biggest prize. You can choose which ways can be activated or deactivated, but the more of them you want, the more coins they’re gonna cost you. You can also play 1 line per coin if you’re not an advanced player. Beside standard playing cards – 10, J, Q, K and A, which represent the lower value symbols, there are also major icons that include portraits of ancient Egyptian deities, such as Ra, Hathor and Anubis, but there are also two Pharaoh portraits – Cleopatra and most likely Ramses II. Special symbols, which activate the bonus features are the crown itself and an astonishing translucent pyramid.
This game features an impressive Multiway Xtra Bonus that can be triggered only by activating 40 paylines or more. You can do that simply by clicking the small plus sign in the bottom left corner. The stakes get doubled after this. You can also win some free spins if you land two or more pyramids on the primary reel. According to players, this shouldn‘t be that hard, since this game features four rows of reels, not three like many others do. Two pyramids will bring you 10 free spins; three will bring 15 and four of them can win you staggering 20 spins.
Crown of Egypt is a beautiful game and no doubt you’ll fall in love with it. IGT obviously invested a lot of time and energy into this slot, which one can notice simply by the design, sound effects and impressive gaming experience. It is easy to earn free spins in this game, which means that you can be rewarded with some cool prizes every couple of minutes – if it’s your lucky of course.
