The wombat says: Play’n GO’s Ankh of Anubis slot is based on Egyptian deity Anubis – he was the God of the Dead and an all-round decent fella. Thankfully his generosity extends beyond the tomb and this slot comes with 2 cool bonus features!
Will they help you to scoop untold riches? Let’s find out…
Look and Feel
The background your reels is Ancient Egypt, just like the Temple of Iris 2 slot from Eyecon and a few other sandy games we could mention.
Or is it wombat fans? Because if you look closely see what looks like the set of a sci-fi movie. Futuristic buildings loom and the horizon while space ships take off in the blue sky above! You’ll also spot a great big ruddy planet in the distance, plus what looks like Nile and the Pyramids. The music is a mysterious piped melody with echoes of Ancient Egypt that helps give this game dollops of atmosphere. The graphics in this game are superb – we like very much.
Ankh of Anubis Game Play
Ankh of Anubis slot has a 3-4-4-4-3 reel formation along with 576 ways to win – this means there are no pay-lines; but don’t panic wombat fans, you can make your wins by landing 3x or more matching symbols from left to right. Wagers in this game start from £0.10 and go up to a chunky £100 per spin.
The reels icons in this game include the A, K, Q and J playing cards as your low value symbols, while gold bracelets, elaborate amulets, golden scarab beetles and bejewelled ankhs are the high value symbols. God of The Dead Anubis is the Wild symbol, and he will stand in for all the other reel icons to make up extra winning combos for you. What a good bloke! Except for that death stuff, of course…
Keep your peepers open for the Golden Pyramid – it’s the Scatter symbol in and key to the bonus Spins.
Free Spins and Bonus Features
Anubis Wilds The Anubis wilds can appear at random in the base game and will hit your reels in 1×1, 1×2, 1×3 or 1×4 form. Bonza!
Pyramid Free Spins Land 3x or more of the Pyramid Scatters and you’ll be awarded a generous 10x, 15x or 20x free spins. The Ankh Wilds will also be active during the bonus and you’ll see a Wild-O-Meter at the top of your reels.
This will keep track of reel how many purple Ankhs you hit. When the meter reaches 5, the Anubis Wilds feature will be activated and you will (hopefully) scoop up some serious coinage!
If another 3x or more Scatters land on your reels, you’ll trigger more 10x spins. Indefinitely. EEK!
This wombat loves the graphics in Ankh of Anubis slot and the mysterious storytelling. Were the Egyptian gods actually a bunch of aliens who created the first civilisation? Who knows! But it’s fun guessing.
As for the gameplay, this slot is less volatile than some of Play’n GO’s other releases, but if you manage to land Anubis Wilds in the Free Spins bonus, those ‘Big Wins’ could still be yours.
