The Theme and the Symbols
If you ever imagined stepping in the shoes of Indiana Jones and embarking on a fascinating trip to discover old and mysterious civilizations, Coins of Egypt is exactly what you need! NetEnt transports you to the golden Egyptian sands where treasures are in abundance and adventures are guaranteed!
To elaborate on this, the 5×3 by 20 payline reel set is swarming with awe-inspiring gods holding fairy-tale riches. Two of them meet you right at the gate to the temple. The one is Horus – the hawk-headed protector of the living, and the other is Anubis – the ruler of the dead. If you are not frightened to go past them, you shall enter the temple and be ready for multiple challenges. These involve facing the stunning cobra-like goddess Wadjet, the cat-like deity Bast, Anubis as well as Horus himself.
All of the above-mentioned temple dwellers have riches to share should you find the right approach in dealing with them. Try to make friends with Horus as he holds the grandest treasures: 75x the bet if 5 symbols of the goddess go your way.
Less significant encounters involve different kinds of beetles with beaming and colorful gems on their backs. They look impressive, yet have little value to offer.
The beetle with golden wings acts as a wild and replaces all symbols, but a scatter, collect symbols and a chest seal. If you are fortunate enough to land 5 wilds, you will scoop a formidable chunk of money – 150x your wager!
Pharaoh Coins Win
During the main game, on every spin, 1-3 coins pop up on reels 1, 2, 3 to land you good prizes – up to 15x the wager. You reap rewards from the accumulated coins as soon as a collect symbol (the pharaoh mask) appears on reel 5.
Free Spins May Be Never-Ending
Without a doubt, freebies are a prime attraction of the game! 3 scatters on reels 1,3, and 5 trigger a free spins game. Before a free spins game starts, all the collected coins jump into the three chests.
During the freebies session, 1-3 coins appear again on the reels and the winnings from them are added to the corresponding chest. Wondering how many free spins you are entitled to? The free game will last until one of the three chests is opened. This happens when three matching chest seals are gathered in a corresponding chest. They turn up on reel 5 (1 per spin) and treat you to the cash prizes from the opened chest.
We can safely say that feasting our eyes on this game was probably the best visual experience we have ever had in slots. The graphics, design, animation effects and music undoubtedly take the cake! Furthermore, the low to medium volatility indicates that the features are quite easily triggered and plenty of hot action is provided.
In terms of wagering and with a high RTP of 96.97% the game does the trick, even though the maximum payout – 274.5x the wager – is not quite aggressive.
Do we recommend Coins of Egypt? No, we insist that each fun-seeking player should capitalize on the myriad of opportunities Coins of Egypt bestows!
Let the luck be on your side!
