As mentioned, ancient Egypt is the setting for this slot. The relative simplicity of Rise of Egypt is brought to the user with no-nonsense graphics and clear, well sized symbols. The background is a view of the pyramids at sunset and the grid and symbols are clear, colourful and well-proportioned.
The slot’s symbols are also traditionally Egyptian and include a red and gold jewelled scarab, bird, the eye of Horus, an ankh, a flower and two harps. Special symbols include the Egyptian cat goddess Bastet, who acts as an expanding wild symbol, and a pyramid is the scatter symbol. Background Egyptian music compliments the overall ambience of the slot.
The slot is packed full of bonus features that can help you on the way towards the biggest possible payouts.
During the base game the wild symbol, the cat goddess Bastet, has the potential to turn into an expanding symbol. It can land on the middle three reels and when it does, it will expand to fill the reel if it will complete a winning combination.
For you to access the main free spins bonus feature, you will need to land three or more pyramid scatter symbols across the reels. This will grant you 12 free spins during which you will not be able to alter your stake.
During the free spins feature the cat goddess Bastet is once again on hand as a wild symbol and it forms part of an upgrade feature. The higher value symbols will be displayed across the side of the reels in order from the lowest on the bottom to the highest at the top. Each time the cat goddess Bastet lands, the lowest value symbol type will be removed from the reels and exchanged for the next highest value symbol. For example, all harps are upgraded to flowers and the harps will not return to the reels during the remaining free spins. If the cat goddess Bastet lands again, all flowers are upgraded to ankhs, and so on. As an additional bonus, the cat goddess Bastet will grant you an additional free spin each time it lands during the free spins.
