Ancient Egypt Classic Slot Machine
As its name implies, Ancient Egypt Classic, the newest slot release by Pragmatic Play features an Egypt theme and investigates the wonders found there. It is actually not Pragmatic Play’s first Ancient Egypt game, although it is an improved version that offers better payouts and is of a more competitive nature. You will find the popular characters of the culture and you will enjoy the exciting gameplay.
Although you will notice that the game features only one symbol that will play a major role in the slot, you will see that this symbol can do many things. The Golden Scarab is the Scatter symbol that will bring the action in Ancient Egypt Classic.
The first time you could benefit from the Golden Scarab is when it appears once on the reels, and starts acting like a Wild. If three or more Golden Scarabs appear in a single round, they act as Scatters and award you with 2x, 20 or 200x the stake wins.
You can trigger the Bonus Game using the Golden Scarab, as well. You will need to land 3 to 5 of these symbols. Then, you will get to pick one of the three items that can award you will Free Spins, a money reward ranging from 10x to 500x the stake or a money reward of 1x the stake.
If you were rewarded with Free Spins, you get 10 Free Spins but also a random symbol is chosen that as soon as it appears on the reels, it covers all positions. During this feature, if once again, 3 or more Scatters appear, the 10 Free Spins are retriggered. If by any luck, Cleopatra is chosen as the expanding symbol, you can get a huge payout of 5,000x the stake per one spin.
Theme & Design
The Ancient Egypt theme is a bit outdated and so common that some might find it uninteresting. Nevertheless, the developer has done a great job portraying it. For instance, the Golden Scarab, Cleopatra, Eye of Ra, Anubis are there, as well as the temples on both sides of the reels. The reels are all covered in gold and the graphics are stunning.
Wagering & Paylines
The minimum bet you could place so you can play Ancient Egypt Classic is $0.10, but you can bet up to $50.00 if you wish since that is the maximum bet. You will need to get the Cleopatra symbols for the highest payouts in the base game, but in the Free Spins feature as well. During the Free Spins, if you manage to make Cleopatra the expanding symbol, you can get a payout of 5,000x the stake, meaning for the max bet, you can get $250,000.00. The theoretical RTP of the game is 96.47%.
Despite the extremely common theme, Ancient Egypt Classic offers pretty exciting payouts and many Free Spins that can help you boost your winnings. In addition, the graphics are first-class, the expanding symbols bring action and the theme, although discouraging, is portrayed perfectly. The betting range and the RTP are decent, so you could give this slot a try and hope to see Cleopatra’s face often.
