Among the many games being released these days, an Ancient Egypt themed slot doesn’t have much of a chance to stand out, at least unless it’s coming via Microgaming, as an exclusive release for them from Just For the Win.
First of all, the game that JFTW created for Microgaming is going to have a limited number of lines, 10 is supplied for the 5 reels that will spin each round. You get payouts of up to $6,250 per line, you benefit from a theoretical RTP of 96.01% and you will encounter impressive features that include stacked wild symbols, scatters, Super Reels and free spins.
BETTING AND PRIZES
In terms of the betting system that is implemented, the game will revolve around 10 active lines and in exchange, the player has to invest a minimum of $0.10 per spin. That would mean using a minimum line bet of just $0.01. The other end of the betting range has a wager of $250 that you can use, with up to $25 spent for each line.
With the Female Adventurer symbols in the main role, forming a combination of five on an active line, you can get paid 250 coins and that can mean as much as $6,250. Stacked wilds and super reels can potentially bring you wins on all lines, with up to $62,500 as a prize. It’s only an average theoretical RTP that we’re looking at though, in the long run, the machine is expected to pay at 96.01%.
TEMPLE OF TUT SLOT FEATURES
At first, it might seem like you don’t get that many chances to form combinations since only 10 lines are available. You get them to form combinations both ways though, so they can start from the rightmost position of a line, not just the leftmost one.
A feature that is considered a regular in most slot machines, the wild is not quite the standard option that you’d expect in this case. It works the same way, so it’s a replacement for symbols that can get its help, but it appears only during Super Reels, a feature that triggers at random.
When triggered, the Super Reels transforms anywhere between 1 and 5 reels, making them host half of their positions in the form of stacked wilds. Chances are that at least one wild will appear on each reel that is transformed but with a high possibility of occupying all positions. Such a round would have huge potential, obviously.
The scatter symbol is one to watch out for as well. By appearing a minimum of three times, it will trigger 8, 15 or even 30 spins for free. During these spins you get Super Reels active, and for all reels. You can even retrigger the free spins, though only once, and in total, you could end up with as many as 60 free spins.
The highest potential in this game is obviously in its free spins, so if you manage to trigger those, you’re set.
THEME & DESIGN
The theme is the least impressive thing about this slot. The Ancient Egypt story has been told way too many times, and in this case, we’re looking at adventurers and objects related to the Egyptian gods, so it’s the same as in other similar slots. The graphics look cute, but they don’t stand out too much there either.
