Ancient Egypt is one genre that players can’t get enough of, and the Golden Egypt slot game by IGT shows just how impressive this particular theme can be. The Golden Egypt slot has been available in land-based casinos for some time, but now it’s ready to play on mobile devices (and desktops, of course) at our phone casino. Its dazzling graphics which feature King Tutankhamun, Queen Cleopatra and famous Egyptian gods like Anubis bring the most famous characters of Ancient Egypt to life on your mobile screen. But, the real excitement lies in the gameplay which is enhanced by the Wild Stays 2 Plays feature, which we’ve previously seen in IGT’s Golden Jungle slot, and it lets you choose your preferred number of free spins and locked wild reels in the bonus game.
Thanks to its name, there’s no mistaking the theme of the Golden Egypt slot, and when you launch it on your mobile device, you can’t fail to be impressed by the scene that greets you. The backdrop features a landscape view of the River Nile back in the glory days of Ancient Egypt when the riverbanks were unspoilt, and the water flowed downstream towards the expansive deserts. Like an almost magical soundtrack featuring harps, flutes, double clarinets, and cymbals resonate around the tomb in which the slot game is set. You begin to encounter the mystical paytable symbols which include ankhs, sapphire amulets, scarab beetles, jade rings, the Sphinx, the Egyptian dog-god Anubis, the Eye of Horus, gold coins, the Pyramids, the bird god Osiris, Cleopatra, Tutankhamun’s death mask, and Ramesses.
In the base game, one of the above paytable symbols is picked at random, at the start of each spin to appear stacked on all five reels to help you win more prizes. The Tutankhamun symbol always lands as a double symbol to enhance your winning opportunities. The Golden Egypt slot also makes use of IGT’s exclusive Wild Stays 2 Pays feature, which collects every gold coin wild symbol that lands on the reels. Once you’ve got two coins in the meter above a particular reel, the feature turns that entire reel wild for the next two spins.
To trigger the bonus game, you’ll need three or more pyramid scatters to appear anywhere in view. What’s so exciting about this bonus feature is that you get a choice of free spins options as follows:
Three scatters: Five free spins with three random wild reels;
Fifteen free spins with two random wild reels, or thirty free spins with one random wild reel;
Four scatters: Ten free spins with three random wild reels; Thirty free spins with two random wild reels, or sixty free spins with one random wild reel;
Five scatters: Fifteen free spins with three random wild reels; Forty-five free spins with two random wild reels, or ninety free spins with one random wild reel.
