Slot tester's review: Ziv Chen
Ankh of Anubis is a 576 ways-to-win slot by Play'n Go that takes you to ancient Egypt, but with a futuristic twist. Designed with stunning graphics and a captivating soundtrack, this high-volatility slot gives you a chance to win a prize suited for Pharaoh Kings – up to 15,000 times your stake!
Swedish software developer Play'n Go became widely known for developing games that boast unique graphics, sounds, and features that lend themselves to immersive gameplay. Since the company first started releasing games back in 2005, I used to wait excitingly to see what new slot idea the Play'n Go team will come up with next.
Since then many reels have spun, and now Play'n Go releases more than 4 slots every month to keep up with demand. As it’s hard to keep inventing the most extraordinary slot machine every week, some Play'n Go slots are better than others.
Is Ankh of Anubis one of Play'n Go's irreplaceable releases? Or just one more of so many of its slots that are based on the ancient Egyptian theme? Head with me to the mystical pyramids of Ankh of Anubis to find out!
Theme and Graphics
When uploading the Ankh of Anubis online slot, I was pretty certain that I'll see the high-quality graphics that became synonymous with Play'n Go's games. But I still wasn't sure that I will find something original and unique. Especially because this developer seems to have a fascination with the ancient Egyptian theme.
There are Riches of Ra, Legacy of Egypt, Doom of Egypt, Dawn of Egypt, Golden Osiris, Legacy of Dead, Rise of Dead, and of course the hit slot Book of Dead. It seems that the Play'n Go team finds it hard to come up with unique names, let alone original slot games.
However, I'm happy to report that Ankh of Anubis is a slot that stands out of the Pharaoh crowds in more ways than one. The name of the slot sets the scene: Ankh is the key of life symbol in ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs and Anubis is the god of Egyptian mummification and afterlife. What the title doesn't reveal is that in this game, the ancient Egyptian theme is contrasted with a sci-fi touch.
The Ankh of Anubis 3-4-4-4-3 game grid sits atop a backdrop that features a beautiful futuristic view of the Nile with spaceships flying above a pyramid skyline.
The game symbols are portrayed by standard arteifacts that correspond with the theme, but they also have some space-age touches in them.
The Ankh of Anubis mystical music builds gradually to create mounting tension, with magical desert tunes increasing gradually and exploding when Free Spins are triggered. As far as the cinematic audio for this futuristic slot goes, Play'n Go got it right.
There are not many bonus features in the Ankh of Anubis game, which in a highly-volatile slot makes every bonus round you trigger more imperative.
Anubis Wild:The Wild feature will trigger randomly during base-game spins and will stack on the reels to cover between 1 and 4 symbol positions. When covering entire reels with a Wild symbol, Anubis can reward you with some pretty nice payouts.
Free Spins: The biggest attraction of the Ankh of Anubis slot machine is with no doubt its Free Spins. To trigger those, you will need to land at least 3 pyramid Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. 3, 4, or 5 Scatters will trigger 10, 15, or 20 Free Spins respectively. If you manage to get 3 or more Scatters during Free Spins, you will retrigger the bonus.
During Free Spins, an Ankh symbol meter will appear above the leftmost reel. Collecting at least 5 Ankh symbols during Free Spins will trigger the Anubis Wild feature which will expand on the reels in different sizes.
Bets and Payouts
Starting with the elephant, or should I rather say mammoth in the room – the Ankh of Anubis online slot broke all previous Play'n Go records of a max potential win. This slot offers you an epic chance to win up to 15,000x your stake. This means that with the help of Anubis and collecting enough of his ankhs, you can win up to $1.5 million.
Betting limits offer a diverse range of stakes between $0.1 and $100 per spin. Ankh of Anubis is a high volatility slot that offers a slightly-below-average 94.2% RTP. But that's pretty much what I'd expect from a slot with a record-breaking payout.
More Ancient Egyptian Magic
Leaving the sci-fi of Ankh of Anubis but still staying around the pyramids, one of my favourite Play'n Go slots is Rich Wilde and the Book of Dead. This 5-reel, 10 payline slot is based on an adventure, Indiana-Jones-like theme with fantastic graphics and thrilling Free Spins.
Be it because or despite its Egyptian theme, all the parts of Ankh of Anubis come together into one great slot machine. Volatility is high, but at 8 out of 10 on the Play'n Go scale, it is not brutal. Both casual players and high rollers will love Ankh of Anubis for its excellent graphics, simple gameplay, a new sci-fi twist on an old theme, and above all a record-breaking payout potential.
Try Ankh of Anubis and I promise you one thing: whether or not you win anywhere near 15,000x your stake, you’re up for a fantastic experience.
