In September 2018, Egyptian Heroes™ and Pyramid: Quest for Immortality™ got serious competition from another Egyptian-themed NetEnt slot. In the Coins of Egypt™ slot, you will again find a way to Ancient Egypt. You end up among the sandy dunes where you find a beautiful, yet forgotten, temple.
With too many topics to cover the complete history of Ancient Egypt, the Coins of Egypt™ slot doesn’t bring all aspects to the reels. It would be great to see all of it such as the ever-impressing pyramids, The Great Sphinx, the Nile river, while hieroglyphs are fascinating as well. Instead, you find a few topics covered with symbols that truly come alive in this exciting NetEnt slot!
There’s even more than the impressive architectural style, religious beliefs, and the treasures and artefacts such as the Ancient Egyptian being incredibly superstitious.
Many of you know that both Egyptian men and women wore make-up. But did you know that this was because they believed it had healing powers? This while it also helped to protect their skin from the sun? Also, in Ancient Egypt, cats were sacred for superstitious reasons.
Superstitious as they were, the Egyptians were also very inventive and one of the first to start writing with ink on paper called papyrus. Ancient Egyptians were scientists and mathematicians with numerous inventions as a result including ways to build buildings, medicine, cosmetics, the calendar, the plough for farming, musical instruments, and even toothpaste.
I love fun facts and I could help myself to add some in this slot review, but the Coins of Egypt™ slot isn’t about any of these as it will bring you the famous mysteries of Ancient Egypt.
Set in a temple, you’ll find two statues installed next to the reels. On the left side of the game, you’ll see the Egyptian god Ra overlooking the game while the Egyptian god Anubis can be found on the left side of the reels.
The Coins of Egypt™ slot also brings the pharaohs, often buried in giant pyramids or in secret tombs. They believed that they a treasure in their grave would help them get a good spot in the afterlife. No way NetEnt could leave them out of the game, cause each of you will love the idea of finding the treasures hidden in their tombs.
Coins of Egypt™ slot brings more excitement than expected
NetEnt’s developers can be seen as the gods of the video slots! They’ve brought light into the games and they brought darkness into the games. All with the intention to bring entertainment in the form of a great design and innovative slot features.
Masters of game features, they’ve brought the NetEnt fans a wide range of innovative slot features. These include the Avalanche™ feature, Cluster Pays™, Sticky Wilds, Walking Wilds, Twin Spins, Colossal symbols, Re-spins, and now also the Pharaohs Coin feature!
Exclusive NetEnt slots
While you don’t expect a great gameplay and design in a video slot initially developed to be available at just one NetEnt Casino or for just one operator for a period of 6 months, the Coins of Egypt™ slot seems an exception. When comparing it to former exclusive video slots designed by NetEnt.
Take Joker Pro™, Scruffy Duck™, Wolf Cubs™, Twin Spin Deluxe™, Fruit Spin™, Bollywood Story™, and Witchcraft Academy™, all video slots developed to be exclusive for a while and none of these brings the excitement the Coins of Egypt™ is bringing.
It’s no wonder NetEnt got rid of a few ex-exclusive games in September 2018, the same month NetEnt launched the Coins of Egypt™ slot. Glow™, Fantasini: Master of Mystery™, and NRVNA™ disappeared from the NetEnt stage, but let’s hope the Coins of Egypt™ slot has a longer lifespan.
With a maximum bet of 200.00, the Coins of Egypt™ slot could attract high-rollers, especially with a chance to win up €30.000 on one bet line. The game’s (fixed) bet lines totals 20, walking over a standard 5 reels and 3 rows. Just as standard as the layout, are the 10 bet levels and 7 different coin values. They can help you create your perfect bet. Bets start at 0.20.
Coins of Egypt™ slot features
With the Egyptian gods Ra and Anubis besides the reels in the Coin of Egypt™ video slot, you can expect nothing but a great spectacle. While Ra was the god of the sun, Anubis brings more darkness into the game being the god of embalming and the dead. Don’t be scared as their intentions are good. Besides, they will try to help you find the treasures you’re looking for in a video slot game.
In order to find the desirable treasures, you must go on a journey to mysterious Egypt where you’ll be among sandy dunes, visiting a yet forgotten temple filled with treasures and riches.
While you enjoy your Egyptian slot adventure, there will also be access to Wild Substitutions, a Scatter Symbol, the Pharaoh Coins Win feature in the main game and the chest seals collection during Free Spins, all designed to help you find the treasures.
As usual in a video slot, Wild Substitutions will be able to take the place of many other symbols in the Coins of Egypt™ slot. This time, though, a golden beetle covers the Wilds. It’ll come to life when involved in a winning combination.
Normally, I’m not that excited about animations used in these type of ex-exclusive slot, but this time I do believe the symbols are coming to life thanks to some great animations. However, nothing really special is going on when it comes to the Wild in this Egyptian-themed slot and it will simply substitute for any other symbol except the Scatter, chest seal and collect symbols.
Now I’ve mentioned the Scatter symbol, it’s time to find out what its function is in this video slot. Will it, as usual, be responsible for the activation of the Free Spins feature? Yes, it will and 3 Scatter symbols on the reels 1,3 and 5will trigger Free Spins.
Usually, a game awards a certain number of free spins. But in Coins of Egypt™, you never know how many free spins wait for you. Considering the fact that the Free Spins feature won’t come to an end until one of the three treasure chests is opened, you know you’ll have at least 3 free spins. However, this number can go up drastically, depending on the course of the Free Spins feature.
From free spin number one, coins of different colours start to appear. After a free spin, the coins the game collects the coins. The amount on the coin gets to the meters of the same colour.
The symbol able to unlock a treasure chest will only appear on the last reel. Once you collect three identical ones, the Free Spins feature come to an end. The contents of the unlocked treasure chest goes to your total wins after which you leave the tomb to return to the main game.
Pharaohs Coins Win feature
During the main game, the above coins have an important role to play as well as part of the Pharaohs Coins Win feature. This innovative slot feature will provide 1 to 3 coins on the first three reels with values on them during each spin.
If the collect symbol indeed appears on the last reel, the total value of the coin(s) will be added to your winnings, another reason why the Coins of Egypt™ slot is worth a try.
