For those of you who can’t get enough of ancient Egypt, here’s yet another winning slot for you to try: Throne of Egypt, from the talented team at Microgaming.
This 5-reel, 25-payline slot machine is filled with fascinating Egyptian artefacts and plays host to a crop of wilds, scatters, free spins and bonus games guaranteed to keep you entertained. If you liked the ultra-popular Cleopatra slot, you’re going to love the Throne of Egypt.
Ancient Egyptian slots have a reputation for being particularly good at payouts. Is it true? Well, it’s certainly true that the Throne of Egypt slot has a higher-than-usual number of features that could see you on your way to riches.
The first of these features is a colossal free spins round, with fifteen free spins up for grabs with a double multiplier. Unlike the standard requirement of spinning three or more scatters, you trigger the free spins feature by spinning two Cobra Lantern scatters on reels 1 and 5. Better still, you can re-trigger this feature giving you even more free spins and bigger wins.
The bonus round is where the Throne of Egypt slot really comes into its own. Three bonus symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4 will activate the Bonus Chamber, which is a multi-level bonus round that takes you into the depths of a pyramid. First you’re confronted with the Scarab Bonus, where you pick from 12 scarabs and reveal prizes until the key to unlock the next chamber is found.
In the next chamber is the Eagle bonus, where you are presented with nine eagles, hiding prizes or a key. This time you only get three picks before the game ends, so try to get the golden key before that happens.
The final chamber holds three princesses and behind each princess is a multiplier that gets applied to the prizes you’ve accumulated until that point.
All in all, the wilds, scatters, free spins and bonus rounds make the Throne of Egypt slot one of the better in the Egyptian series. Some may compare it the wins available on Cleopatra slot and find it lacking, but sometimes it’s about the entertainment you get from playing the game and on that score, Throne of Egypt offers plenty to keep players amused. Enjoy!
