The wombat says: Here’s a quick lesson in Egyptology for you Wombat fans: Horus was a falcon-headed Egyptian God and the King of Pharaohs. As the son of Isis and Osiris, he also represented good will and fortune making him the ideal fella to base a slot around, which is just what Iron Dog Studios have done with the Treasure of Horus slot! Let’s go digging for ancient gold with him- just don’t call him a bird brain. Ha! Sorry…
Look and Feel
Let’s go back in time from the Wild-O-Tron 3000 slot shall we. Way back, as there ain’t no robots in this game.
This Egyptian themed slot is set on a background of a desert oasis with palm trees and the Pyramids in the distance. Meanwhile your reels are gold and framed by 2 columns that are inscribed with hieroglyphs. Your spin soundtrack is some traditional Egyptian music played on a harp and lute that it strangely soothing. Snore. Sorry, we nearly dropped off there.
The Treasure of Horus slot has 5 reels, 3 rows of symbols, and 20 pay-lines. Not as many as the Happy Birthday! slot, but pretty average we’d say.
Your symbols on the reels include; some bejewelled crossed swords, a pile of ancient coins, a statue of the cat god Bastet and an Ankh plus the standard playing cards A, K, Q and J as your low value symbols. The design is a step above more traditional games like the Vegas Diamonds slot machine (a 3 reeler). In short, this slot is a looker!
The Wild in Treasure of Horus slot is the green scarab beetle icon, and it will do the usual job of wilds by replacing all other symbols in the game to make up extra winning combinations (all except for Scatter and Free Spins Symbols). This helpful Scarab will fly around the reels and transform into a Wild on a random symbol wherever he lands.
Scatter icons only appear in the bonus round with these symbols and they can dish out wins worth up to 500 coins in total!
Free Spins and Bonus Features
The Free Spins are set off when a flying scarab transforms into a Free Spin Symbol at the very top of reel 3. Next you’ll get the chance to enter into one of the following multi-level bonus tombs:
Anubis Chamber: This is the first level and here you’ll get 6 free spins, and the standard scarab wild symbol. If the Anubis symbol lands on the third reel, you’ll unlock the next level and move up.
Tomb of Weret: Here you’ll get another 6 Free Spins but this time with green and pink scarab wild symbols. These wilds symbols come with a nice little 2x Multiplier! If you manage to land the Horus icon on reel 3, you’ll move up another level and unlock the next chamber.
Tomb Of Horus: This is the top level, and it’s 6 free spins for you again with pink, green and blue wild scarabs and multipliers of x2, and x5. PLUS you’ll also get an extra scatter symbol – the Tutankhamun Death Mask. Cheers Horus! These extra scatters will award 5x, 10x or 25x your bet for 3, 4 or 5 of them.
A nice little twist on the Egyptian theme, this Iron Dog release gets a thumbs up from us wombats. The level up bonus play makes a nice change from your standard free spins round, and we like the game’s simple yet stylish visuals. Put your faith in Horus and watch the wins come unfold!
