Lady of Egypt Slot Review
The theme of Ancient Egypt and its monumental structures and pantheon is quite common among slot game developers. And developer WMS seems to have done a fairly good job with their take at the theme in Lady of Egypt. In the distance, the backdrop features two pyramids and the setting sun in between them. The graphics and the design of the game are pretty decent and offer plenty of fine detail to marvel at. Even the soundtrack is surprisingly well matched, including the sound effects of the spinning reels and the buttons being pressed. The symbols on the reels include the very unique representations of the playing card symbols A, K, Q and J. Following them are the pharaoh’s crook and flail, the Ankh, a cobra, Anubis and Bastet. Finally, there’s the Lady of Egypt symbol.
This slot game features a very unusual setup of 10 reels and 3 rows. There are 9 paylines and players are free to select their betting amount. Stakes can span from 35p per spin up to the maximum of £175 per spin. The RTP is a somewhat satisfactory 96,08%.
Watch out for the Wild symbol in Lady of Egypt, because it only appears on reels 2, 4, 6 and 8. It doesn’t really have any value on its own, but it can replace any of the regular symbols to help create winning sequences. However, it cannot substitute for the Bonus symbol on these reels.
You will notice that as you spin the reels, some parts of it will become larger. This is thanks to the unique setup of 2 reels + a 3×3 Active Reel set + 3 regular reels. The Active Reel set comes with a special ability. If you can fill it up with the same symbol or mixed symbols, this will activate the Expanded Pay feature. As you keep spinning the reels, the Speed Spins Active Reels will move to the right by 2 reels. And if you activate the Expanded Pay feature, it can have the Speed Spins Multiplier applied to it. Meaning your wins can have a multiplier of up to 5x.
In addition this slot game has a freespins bonus feature. You will need to look out for the Bonus Scatter symbol. It can appear in any position on the reels, and you will want to land at least 3 of it during a spin in order to activate the feature. Depending on the number of Scatters, you will receive a different number of freespins. Thus, 3 Bonus Scatters will grant you a total of 8 freespins. Likewise, 4 Bonus Scatters will grant you 12 freespins and a multiplier of 4x your stake. Next up, if you land 5 Scatters, you will receive 16 freespins an 25 times your stake. And since there are 10 reels here, if you receive 6 or more Scatters anywhere in sight, you’ll get 30 freespins and a whopping 50 times your stake.
Lady of Egypt is a high quality entertaining game that will offer just the needed diversity in gameplay and potentially high payouts.
