Slot tester's review Ziv Chen
Doom of Egypt is another slot from Swedish developer Play'n Go that, as its name suggests, takes you on a journey to the tombs of ancient Egypt. In what seems like an attempt to ride on the success of the company's hit title Book of Dead that was released three years earlier, Doom of Egypt was launched in 2019 and looks like a reskin of the original slot.
Still, Doom of Egypt's design is fresh, the visuals are sharp, and the mysterious sounds put you in an adventurous mood. But with very little innovation in terms of bonus features and mechanics, does this slot have enough to tempt us for yet another trip to meet the pharaohs? Let's find out.
Symbols and Design
When first loading the Doom of Egypt slot machine, one can't help but notice how much it reminds other Play'n Go slots of the same genre, such as Legacy of Egypt and Rise of Dead. But this slot still brings something new and fresh. There are 5 reels, 3 rows and 10 paylines. The game portrays crafted symbols that don't try to jump out of the reels, while the game sits atop a light-blue backdrop that portrays an ancient tomb.
So unlike other Egyptian-themed slots that are cluttered with elements and animations that try to reinvent themselves with every spin, the Doom of Egypt slot offers players subtle and elegant gameplay.
As expected from a slot that takes us to ancient Egypt, the Doom of Egypt symbols include all the usual pharaoh suspects:
The Doom of Egypt slot doesn't offer a lot of bonus features beyond Free Spins. But potential Free Spins payouts are beyond lucrative.
Free Spins: The Free Spins in Doom of Egypt are triggered once 3 or more Scarab symbols land anywhere on the reels. You are then instantly awarded with 10 Free Spins, which can be re-triggered at any time by landing another trio of Scarabs.
The best part of the Free Spins is that they can be re-triggered an unlimited number of times. This is why ultra-high variance slots like the Doom of Egypt can produce massive payouts in the bonus round.
Special Expanding Symbol: Before Free Spins start, one symbol except for the Scarab is randomly chosen to act as a Special Expanding Symbol that will cover all 3 positions of the reel.
The best part is that you don't need these symbols to land on adjacent reels or even align from left to right. A win is formed if at least 2 of the high-paying or 3 of the low-paying symbols land on the reels. You can also land a screen full of matching symbols during any spin and walk away with a hefty payout.
Bets and Payouts
As far as bets go, Doom of Egypt is an affordable slot. You can bet as low as £0.10 per spin or as high as £50.
We already mentioned it is a highly volatile slot, and with a 94.25% RTP (Return to Player) the payout is a bit lower compared to the online slot average. But you can win up to 5,000 times your stake, which is £250,000 if you are lucky enough to fill the reels with either Scarab Wilds or Anubis symbols. So the Doom of Egypt is a slot well-worth playing.
More Trips to Ancient Egypt
Experienced players will instantly notice that the bonus rounds and gameplay are pretty much borrowed from the Book of Dead slot machine. So, if you're a fan of Book of Dead features, you can now trigger them once again on the reels of Doom of Egypt. Or better yet, play on both and compare.
If you are still looking to explore more Egyptian-themed slots, Play'n Go's Ankh of Anubis combines ancient Egyptian times with an exciting futuristic theme.
Doom of Egypt certainly has a lot to offer. It comes with a popular theme, great visual detail, and a potential for big payouts. Some players may be deterred by the high variance and the relatively low RTP value, but every experienced player will tell you that if you want to win big, slots like this one are the way to go. All it takes is one good bonus round to win big. And the Doom of Egypt online slot can undoubtedly make it happen.
