Egypt allows the slots developers to involve various gods and other characters as well as the pyramids, the Sphinx and the like. A real show for slots fans. Crown Of Egypt is from the capable studio of IGT and it’s a worthwhile addition to the Egyptian genre – it features five reels, 1024 ways to win and some lovely graphics. The soundtrack used adds the Egyptian atmosphere to the entire game. The hieroglyphics of the reels are set against a background which emphazise the atmosphere.
The slot game symbols include images of Egyptians gods such as Ra and Anubis; there’s also a Pharaoh, a female Pharaoh while the minor symbols are represented by J, Q, K and A.
“Crown of Egypt”, the special symbols, appears on reels two, three, four and five and a spectacular translucent pyramid which activates the bonus round.
This feature is IGT’s way of spicing up the paylines a little; to activate it you’ll have to be playing with 40 lines and then you need to click the plus button in the bottom left hand corner of the screen. Your stake will be doubled but we think t’s worth it.
Playing this slot game, you can win not just on standard paylines, but also if matching symbols are on adjacent lines – although it costs more you should also win more.
In Crown of Egypt, the only way to trigger the free spins is to land two or more of the pyramid symbols on the centre reel. This slot features four rows of reels rather than the usual three, so this is not quite as difficult as it sounds to get the free spins.
The reels used in the free spin round are more valuable than in the base game and you can check the symbol values by on the payable. It’s also possible to re-trigger this feature by landing more pyramids although there’s a maximum of 130.
Crown of Egypt is a worthy addition to the burgeoning ranks of Egyptian-flavoured slots and the Multiway Xtra and free spins round mean this is a useful use of your spare time
