Slot tester's review: Trystan Michielsen
The Legacy of Egypt slot is based around ancient Egypt with its abundance of wealth and beautiful art. The game gives this concept its own original take. Let’s see if this slot deserves to be added to the pantheon of Egyptian-themed slots.
Legacy of Egypt strives to give players a classic gaming experience across a 5 reel, 30-payline framework while adding their own unique features to the game. You’ll find yourself transported back to a time when Ancient Egypt was at its height, with everything full of splendour. An excellent setting to play in as far as I’m concerned!
The Legacy of Egypt slot looks gorgeous as I have come to expect from software provider Play ‘N Go. Even though the Egyptian motif is quite a popular one, the artists that worked on this slot visibly put a lot of attention to detail into the look of the game.
Don’t worry about originality as the game makes sure to use familiar Egyptian scenes. You’ll find the usual staples here: a Pharaoh, the Eye of Ra, statues of Anubis and Sobek and more. All of them gorgeous and distinct enough to keep me interested whilst playing.
The game also has plenty of little animations; from fern leaves in the background moving gently with the breeze to the Pharaoh blinking and the different statues emoting. My eye was constantly being drawn to somewhere on the screen which really helped to bring the game to life. I was playing the game with a constant smile on my face at how the slot looked.
Sound & Music
The music you hear while playing is very slow and minimal. It doesn’t sound very Egyptian and I’m not sure why they chose this type of music. Once you start spinning more and more, the music picks up though and it starts to fit the feel of the slot a lot more.
Getting any kind of wins plays a short jingle that fits well with the theme but not so much with the music. If you manage to unlock some free spins the music stays a little more upbeat. But this stops again once you go back to the base game. It encouraged me to keep playing if only to keep the music going!
Symbols & Features
Legacy of Egypt uses the normal division of classic symbols and specific ones to fill the playing field. As usual, let’s go from highest to lowest:
There is one main feature to the game. You can land the free spins bonus round by getting three Scatters on screen at the same time. This will activate the free spins mode, where you gain a random multiplier for every spin. The number of free spins you get can vary from 1 to 20!
As you play along, Scatters will act as Wilds which increases the chance at bigger wins. Once the free spins are expended, the total amount won will be added to your funds.
While Legacy of Egypt stays in familiar waters, it does what it does really well. The graphics especially are fantastic, with a lot of crisp detail. I like how there are also a bunch of small animations that liven things up.
The sounds are good but not great. The style of music really falls out of tune with the rest of the game but as it picks up it translates the energy of the slot a lot better. I should commend the creators for not going for the easy choice with a generic Egyptian tune but trying to liven things up a bit.
There are very little extras to the game. The free spins are exactly what you’d expect; the only really unique aspect is the multiplier. If you are the type of player that likes a beautiful slot that doesn’t go too far with unnecessary frills then this slot should definitely be on your list.
Legacy of Egypt is the type of slot I consider as a modern take to the classic slot idea. It applies the traditional aspects of a slot without making it more complicated. Instead, it is updated to modern times. An excellent compromise for people that like to play beautiful slots with the classic gameplay most of us expect.
