The Wombat says: G’day. Ancient Egypt beckons us once again in Tomb of Akhenaten slot. But who was this Akhenaten fella? And what exactly have Nolimit City got up their sleeves here?
When I think of games called “Tomb of”…, I normally think of Play ‘n GO, you know the Swedish people behind games like the Win a Beest slot and others, so our interest was stirred!
Pharaoh Akhenaten reigned from 1353 to 1336 BC. He was the father of Tutankhamun and husband to Nefertiti.
He’s best known for shaking things up in Ancient Egypt by renouncing the Egyptian Gods, and building a whole new city devoted to his one true god, Aten. Sadly, after his death the Egyptian deities were quickly reinstated – while Akhenaten became known as the Heretic King. Poor bloke. Well, you can’t say he didn’t try…
But now to the slot! The win potential here is a massive 26,261x your stake and there are 3,125 win ways to offer, thanks to Sticky Win Spins modifier. This is starting to remind us of the Scarab Gold slot, another Egyptian outing.
But more on these in a bit…
Look and Feel
As always with Nolimit City the graphics and sound effects in this game are absolute top notch. We’d say this game is on par with the Lord Merlin and the Lady of the Lake slot on the design side of things. Very nice.
The reels are set in an ancient tomb and are flanked by 2 green and gold pillars. They are inscribed with hieroglyphics and spin with the help of a complicated wooden pulley system. Meanwhile, your spin soundtrack is an eerie melody that provides heaps of atmosphere.
Tomb of Akhenaten Slot Game Play
The Tomb of Akhenaten slot has 5 reels, 3 rows and an initial 243 ways to win. But this can increase to a whopping 3125 pay-lines as your game play progresses.
We’ve come to expect that from Nolimit City who are hot on the heels of Play’n GO in this respect with their games like the Rich Wilde and the Tome of Madness slot and Energoonz
Bets start at 0.10 and go up to a maximum bet of 100.00 credits per spin.
The pay-table is a good mix. The lower paying symbols are made up of the 10, J, Q, K and A playing cards, while the higher paying symbols are the animal-headed gods Ra, Anubis, Sobek, Thoth and Bastet.
The Lara-Croft lookalike is your wild icon here and she’s holding a torch to light her way through the creepy tomb, while the bonus symbol is Akhenaten. He will give a little crackle of lightning every time he lands.
Free Spins and Bonus Features
Sticky Win Spins
Every time you hit a winning combo, an extra row will be added to the top of the reels that will generate more win ways. You’ll also be given a re-spin with your winning icons stuck in place. If any new matching icons hit the reels, another re-spin will be given and another row will be added to the top of your reels giving you 3125 ways to win. Nice work!
Akhenaten Free Spins
Hit x3 of the Akhenaten bonus symbols and you’ll scoop 8 free spins and start with a x1 win multiplier.
During play, any bonus symbols that hit the reels will give you an extra Free Spin to add to your tally, and every Sticky Win Spin that you achieve will increase a win multiplier by 1x.
This Wombat managed 14 spins with a x10 multiplier. Not too shabby.
If the reels expand to the maximum, you might just trigger this cool Wild modifier.
A red arrow will spin around in a pyramid at the top of the 5 reels. If the arrow lands, it will turn the entire reel below it wild. And even better! If there’s already a wild in play, it will transform into a double wild and will be added up as 2 symbols.
It’s an interesting and unique feature – well done Nolimit City!
It won’t surprise you to learn that the Tomb of Akhenaten slot is mega volatile (Nolimit City themselves have given it a 9 out of 10), like many other games from these madcap games studios!
As such, this slot is not for the faint hearted! But for players seeking the mega wins with a wallet to match.
Overall, we liked the game play. The Pyramid Wilds and Sticky Win Spins combined can generate some good base-game payouts, but your Free Spins are where the 26,261x your stake is found.
