With its ancient Egyptian theme, Eye of Horus Megaways brings stone carved hieroglyphics and symbols to the reels, bringing the game to life on screen. The base game has a simple set up with the reels located inside the Egyptian temple of Horus. In the free games, the temple glows brighter and Egyptian theme music plays to add to the suspense and enjoyment of the free game play.
The game’s theme also extends to the symbols on the reels. There are three higher value theme related stone symbols including the Horus eye hieroglyphic, a dog and a bird. The lower value symbols are represented by the scarab beetle, ankh, decorative fans and the royals A, J, K, and Q. Horus acts as a wild and the temple acts as a scatter.
During the base game, in addition to the higher value symbols, the wild and scatter symbols have great importance. Horus is the wild and when the Horus symbol lands upon a reel it expands to cover the whole of that reel, increasing the chance of forming a winning combination.
The temple is the scatter and landing three or more temple symbols will automatically start the main bonus feature of twelve free games. During free games, the reels spin automatically and calculate any winnings. The wild will continue to expand to cover the whole reel when it lands, which will help to accumulate wins. Better yet, every time that the wild appears, one extra free game will be granted. Should two wilds appear then three extra free games are awarded, three wilds award five extra games and four wilds grant seven extra free spins.
The wild also has another eye-catching bonus feature. Across the top of the free games screen the three higher value symbols will appear alongside the scarab beetle, ankh and decorative fans. Every time a wild lands, Horus will magically beam the lower value symbol away and replace it with the next higher value symbol on the reels. For example, the first wild will replace all decorative fans with the ankh. When another wild lands, all ankh symbols will be replaced by the scarab beetle symbol in all positions. The more wilds that land during free games, the more lower value symbols are removed from the reels, which significantly improves the chance of landing big wins.
