The wombat says: Coins of Egypt slot from NetEnt takes us on a quest deep amongst the timeless sand and palms in the hunt for the Ancient golden coins and treasure! If you have been blown away by their Vikings slot which is based on the smash hit TV series- you must try this game. It’s also a good ‘un!
Yes, you’re right, it’s not the first time (or the last) that the Gods at Giza have beckoned us slot fans to come and spin their cursed reels, BUT this time it’s different.
Why you might ask? Well you’ll have to read on to find out…
Look and Feel
The reels are set within an ancient stone Egyptian temple flanked by powerful Egyptian gods Anubis and Horus. Meanwhile your soundtrack is made up of mysterious lyre and flute music that adds just the right amount of atmosphere. Astoundingly good 3D graphics and illustrations finish off proceedings. NetEnt have done it again, this slot really looks the business. It look absolutely amazing when you fire it up to a more traditional game like the Silver Lioness slot (and that game ain’t half bad).
Coins of Egypt Slot is a 5 reel, 3 row slot with 20 fixed pay-lines. That’s not quite as many as the Si Xiang slot which is also a bit of a looker, but its more than many. Let’s call it average, shall we?
There a lot of symbols on your reels Wombat fans and they include: 5 different types of gem/scarab beetle as your low value symbols in blue, red green, yellow and purple.
Each scarab gem is worth a different payout amount and landing various combos of them gives you a win. When this happens, the symbols suddenly become alive on the reels and crack out of their stone tombs and flutter their creepy beetle wings. It’s pretty cool really.
Next up are a load of Egyptian Gods and Goddesses that make up your high value symbols. There are 5 of these celestial icons; Anubis (or Dog Face as this Wombat calls him), Wadjet, Bastet, Isis and the Scorpion. The Big Daddy of all the symbols is Isis and landing 5x of him on a payline will give you 75x times your bet. Hurrah!
The Wild symbol in Coins Of Egypt slot is the golden scarab that will do the usual wild job of substituting for all other symbols on the reels (except the Scatter Symbol, Chest Seals and the Collect Symbol).
Meanwhile, your scatter symbol looks a bit like Saturn with its golden rings. Land 3x of these on reels 1, 3 &5 and it’s free spins aplenty for you.
Finally, this game features something called a ‘collect’ symbol. It’s represented by the Pharoah’s mask and splits open when it lands in a great little animated graphic.
Free Spins and Bonus Features
Pharaoh Coins Win Bonus
In the base game you’ll see coins with values written on ’em will land willy nilly on all over reels 1, 2 and 3 on each spin. These cool little coins are worth between 2x and 15x your bet – and should the Pharaoh collect symbol lands on reel 5 at any point he’ll crack open you’ll scoop the value of all coins plus any combo wins too. Cheers Pharoah! Who said they were scary blokes that will chuck you in jail at a moment’s notice? Well Joseph, that’s who. And his technicolour dreamcoat…
Now here’s where things get a bit tricky… At the beginning of the round, the total value of all the coins that landed on the reels during that spin that set off the Free Spins is added to one of the 3 chests that now sit underneath your reels – the Ruby Eagle chest, the Emerald Snake Chest and the
Golden Cat chest. These chests have empty sockets at the start of the spins and its your to fill them up!
As the reels spin up to 3 ‘seals’ (or coins with emblems on) that correspond to said chests will land on reel 5 and when they do, the values are added to the respective chests. Once you match and collect 3 identical chest seals on reel 5, your free spins will be over, and you’ll walk away with the number of coins that have been accumulated.
Sadly the free spins can’t be re-triggered, but you know , you can’t have everything now can you?
Make no mistake, there is a LOT going on in this slot Wombat fans and it is a bit complicated, but Coins of Egypt is an ambitious beast that once tamed, really can bring home the kind of chunky wins that even the Gods would be proud of.
The graphics are superb and the bonus rounds are epic and mind boggling (we like the free spins feature best of all). All in all Coins of Egypt slot is another awesome NetEnt adventure, and one that will not disappoint you!
