Slot tester's review: Trystan Michielsen

Slot tested

Mysteries of Egypt is placed amongst the rows of statues and the daunting spires of the pyramids in Ancient Egypt, everything soaked in the burning yellow of the sun as the reels spin.

A slot that was developed by RedRake Gaming and released in 2015, Mysteries of Egypt takes the player back in time. Ancient Egypt is a very popular theme for many slot developers and there honestly isn’t that much that can be done to make a game stand out anymore. Other slots in this setting include Leprechaun Goes Egypt, Valley of the Gods, and Legacy of Egypt.

Still, let’s see if the Mysteries of Egypt has found a way to set itself apart from the competition. To start with, it has a 5-reel, 3-row playing field. There are 25 betlines across the screen with no special mechanics that influence this. So far, then, it seems as if it sticks close to the classic approach!

The game looks very pretty, I was especially impressed by the background. There is an entire valley filled with statues and pyramids in the background while the sun gently bathes everything in gold. The reels are seemingly part of a giant pillar in the middle of the screen, decorated with hieroglyphs and reliefs.

I found the sound-design to be rather safe and obvious, staying close to what many people will call Egyptian music. The use of harps and slow bass sounds give it the correct atmosphere but it didn’t give a sense of originality.

Symbols

There are a number of different symbols in the Mysteries of Egypt, all of them made to fit the theme. The low-paying symbols are a selection of hieroglyphs while the high-paying symbols are different characters in Egyptian history. I really liked how there were a lot of animations in the game, ranging from the wins being highlighted to different symbols having their own special animations.

From highest to lowest, they are:

  • Scatter: Get 3 or more Scatters on the screen to activate the Free Spins mode.
  • Wild: Wilds substitute all other symbols in the game except the special symbols. The more wilds appear on the screen at the same time, the higher any wins are multiplied. Max. 80x your bet with five-of-a-kind on a winning payline.
  • Eye of Ra: Max. 20x your bet with five-of-a-kind on a winning payline.
  • Cat: Max. 20x your bet with five-of-a-kind on a winning payline.
  • Queen: Max. 10x your bet with five-of-a-kind on a winning payline.
  • Tet: Max. 10x your bet with five-of-a-kind on a winning payline.
  • Sitting Hieroglyph: Max. 6x your bet with five-of-a-kind on a winning payline.
  • Symbols Hieroglyph: Max. 6x your bet with five-of-a-kind on a winning payline.
  • Falcon Hieroglyph: Max. 4x your bet with five-of-a-kind on a winning payline.
  • Ankh Hieroglyph: Max. 4x your bet with five-of-a-kind on a winning payline.
  • Man Hieroglyph: Max. 3x your bet with five-of-a-kind on a winning payline.

The payouts of the different symbols are rather low but the combination of frequent wins means it results in a Medium Volatility. During my time playing, I didn’t find any of the features to result in especially big wins.

Features

The features in Mysteries of Egypt are an integral part of the gameplay even though they don’t result in any major wins. Still, they appeared often enough to feel important for the outcome of many spins.

  • Wilds: Wilds substitute all normal symbols in the game. The more Wilds that are on screen, the higher the multiplier applied to all wins that spin will be.
  • Multipliers: Whenever there is more than 1 Wild on the screen, wins will be multiplied.
  • Free Spins: With 3 Scatter symbols on the screen, the Free Spins mode activates with 7 free spins. Re-triggering free spins is not possible. During the Free Spins mode, Scatter symbols act as wilds and can grant extra free spins.

I found the wilds to appear quite frequently and across the screen. In fact, the more Wilds that appear on the screen, the higher any wins will be because of the increasing multiplier that will be applied. The way these work is:

  • 1 Wild: Any wins will receive a 2x multiplier.
  • 2 Wilds: Any wins will receive a 3x multiplier.
  • 3 Wilds: Any wins will receive a 4x multiplier.

While I played Mysteries of Egypt I found the game to frequently give 1 Wild but seeing more than that was rare and I don’t think I ever saw 3 Wilds on the screen at the same time.

The Free Spins mode was triggered by getting 3 Scatter Symbols on the screen. Once this happened the tiles would drop away to reveal a sarcophagus behind them before being replaced by the free spins screen.

Here, the player receives 7 free spins before starting. During the Free Spins mode, Scatter symbols will turn high-paying symbols into Wilds. As more symbols are turned into Wilds, the player receives extra free spins up to a maximum of 4.

During my time playing, I didn’t find the Free Spins mode to be especially lucrative. The Wilds that appeared weren’t sticky and there were frequent spins where nothing would happen. This often resulted in a disappointing coin win from this mode, making it less interesting to look out for.

In Conclusion

Mysteries of Egypt is a very nice looking slot that is well designed and fun to play. The different features are a little sparse and simple. I do think it provides enough colour to this rather exhausting setting to give it some uniqueness.

The graphics are well made, and the added animations help bring things to life. The sound is good but rather boring. Players that enjoy something visual to entertain them while playing will be treated well. Those that only care about the gameplay might be a little disappointed.

I did find the game to be quite good at keeping my funds high and I even went above my starting coins for a long time. Players have the choice of choosing a bet between $0.10 and $50 which is an acceptable range. Unfortunately, the max. win is only 610x your bet which is very low compared to other slots with medium volatility.

3.2

    I've been playing videoslots for almost 10 years and been a professional reviewer for over 5. I look at slots not just as a writer but also as a player, hoping to help others find their perfect slot.

    I also enjoy movies, books and travel so any slots with those topics usually have my preference. But in general I'll play everything!
