Yet another game that has Egypt for its theme. Perhaps the Egyptian tourist board have shares in a load of slot designing companies. This is from Microgaming who are no strangers to producing successful slot games.
With Egypt used so often it’s difficult to come up with something new but the gameplay here makes this one stand out from the crowds. It has five reels, three rows of symbols and a total of 20 paylines.
On either side of the reels are Egyptian columns with the Eye of Horus at the top of them. Symbols include the regular suspects in a game with this theme. There are treasure chests, golden scarab beetles, several Egyptian gods and ornate vases.
The wild symbol here is the game logo and can substitute for other symbols to help get you some winning combinations. You really have a good chance of getting some winning combinations via the Throne of Egypt wild symbol. It can be stacked on all reels so the chance of it substituting for other symbols and boosting your profits are really high. There’s also the scatter symbol which is the burning flame and the Eye of Horus is the bonus symbol.
To get 15 free spins of the reels you need to get the flame scatter symbol on the first and fifth reels. Even better news is the fact that all the wins you receive during the free spins round are doubled. The good news keeps on coming because if those scatter symbols end up on the right reels again, you can re-trigger the free spins.
The main bonus game in this packed slot is the Bonus Chamber. This is activated when the Eye or Horus symbol lands on the second, third and fourth reels. There are now three chambers to work your way through beginning with the Scarab Bonus. Here you’re presented with 12 scarabs and you pick from them one at a time until you find the key. Each pick gets you a win and when that key is found you can progress to the next chamber.
Next comes the Eagle Bonus and there are nine Eagles to choose from. This time you have just three to pick and hopefully find the key that takes you to the next chamber. If you don’t then it’s time to collect your winnings and return to the base game.
If you are lucky and find that key the final chamber is the Princess Bonus. There are three princesses and you have one to choose from. You can win a multiplier that will be applied to the wins you’ve had so far in the bonus game.
There’s plenty to enjoy about this game even if it isn’t the most original of themes. It’s produced well and the bonus games can definitely win you some good prizes. Lots going on so make sure you have a good look through the paytable and have some free games, that’ll really help you a lot.
