If there is one theme that lends itself for a video slot, it’s history. Our planet has such a rich history, and after Gonzo’s Quest, Muse and Secret of the Stones, also the ancient Egypt seems perfect for another marvellous creation out of the hands of the Net Entertainment designers. With Egyptian Heroes it’s time to go on an expedition back to the era of Pharaohs. Everything in this game is inspired by the old Egyptians. Discover all the ancient Egypt has to offer, especially the heroes known from that time such as Osiris, Amon Ra and Isides.
Just another Egyptian slot?
Egyptian Heroes isn’t the first video slot based on the ancient Egypt, the pyramids, the hieroglyphs, the Pharaohs and the precious treasures Egypt has to hide, but of which some have never been found. Is Egyptian Heroes just another Egypt based video slot like ? Yes and no. Yes, because it is another video slot based on the history of Egypt, no because it’s not just another video slot. If familiar with the Net Entertainment video slots, you know by now they don’t design just video slots. Not one game is launched without having the potential to become one of their biggest success stories. The same goes for Egyptian Heroes and soon you realise it isn’t one of these boring Egyptian slots you’ve seen before as Netent as usual took a step further to bring a dose of originality into the historic, but over-exploited Egypt theme.
The original part of this game can be found in the symbols as for once it’s not the pyramids, scarabs and hieroglyphs playing the leading role on the reels, but the Egyptian Heroes, the Egyptian Gods including Ra, the sun god of Ancient Egypt, often considered to be the King of the Gods and often seen wearing the sun disk on his head. But also Tefnut appears on the reels, the goddess of moisture, humidity and water, shown to the public as a woman with a lion’s head, but rarely ever shown as a woman. Also Tefnut was shown with the solar disk and uraeus, linking her with the sun. Another recognisable Egyptan hero is Sobek, associated with the Nile crocodile, pharaonic power, fertility, and military prowess, but served mainly as a protector against the dangers presented by the Nile river. In the Egyptian Heroes video slot though, they only have on main function, to provide the highest wins possible.
You never know what these Egyptian Heroes will be capable of with their powers, but eventually it’s your total bet that has the biggest influence on your winnings. The higher the bet, the higher the winnings, but first it’s up to you to decide whether you want to play with all bet lines. I always recommend you to do so, but you can also activate just one or a few. If you activate them all, you’ll play with 20 bet lines and a minimum bet of 0.20. This total bet can be steadily increased thanks to the ten different levels and the six coin values you can choose from going up to 0.50. If all bet lines, levels and the highest coins are activated, you’ll end up with a total bet of 100.00, available in a multitude of different currencies depending on where you choose to play.
Golden Bet Line
As Egyptian Heroes can be called innovative, no ancient features can be found on the five reels. Far from it as Net Entertainment introduces the Golden Bet Line, a randomly selected bet line which has a random Multiplier ranging from x2 to x5. This outstanding extra feature is active on every spin without any additional costs to the player. Additional to the Golden Bet Line you’ll find features as the Wild, Scatter and Free Spins.
The win possibilities are further increased by additional features including the Wild symbol. Although a Wild isn’t that innovative, it will be when it expands as this Wild symbol does when it appears on reels 2, 3 and 4. Just as all Wild symbols in the Netent video slots, also this Wild, expanding or not, will substitute for all other symbols in Egyptian Heroes, except Scatter symbols. Then, last but not least, there is the Scatter symbol of which three, four or five Scatters anywhere on the reels will trigger 10, 15 or 20 Free Spins, respectively.
Once Free Spins are triggered a Wild symbol occupies the entire middle reel with the result many lucrative wins will occur, no matter what your bet is. Additionally when these Wild symbols can complete winning bet lines, the Wild symbols expand on reels 2 and 4 as well.
After my description you have no reasons left to think Egyptian Heroes is just another Egypt themed video slot like The Secrets of Horus is one, including all-time favourite pyramids, scarabs and hieroglyphs on the symbols. This time the Egyptian gods from the past can be found on the symbols, definitely recommended if you like original high quality video slots, you love history or you are looking for innovative features. Thanks to the generosity, innovation and originality of Egyptian Heroes features, this video slot is promising some good entertainment to any type of player.
