Vera and John Casino has just added the latest and for now, exclusive slot release from Pragmatic Play titled Ancient Egypt, this super high variance 10 payline offering aims to compete with slots such as Book of Ra Deluxe (Novomatic) and the popular Book of Dead slot from Play’n Go and utilises the same Free Spins with Expanding Symbols mechanic offering wins up to a massive 5000x stake!
Whilst the Ancient Egypt slot is definitely aiming to compete with these hugely popular slots there are a couple of minor changes to the bonus feature, which after playtesting for several 1000 spins are really not to our liking.
The main bonus round is triggered by landing 3 or more of the special Scarab Scatter symbols, rather than this instantly triggering the free spins instead you are transported to a simple picking round with 3 rewards on offer, Low Reward, High Reward and 10 Free Spins, which can result in wins as low as 1x stake if the Low Reward chest is awarded.
The good news is that high reward can instantly award wins anywhere from 10x right up to 500x, but of course, the main reward you are hoping for is the free spins reward where wins of up to 5000x stake are possible.
Whilst the bonus round may well trigger a little more frequently than the slots this is trying to directly compete with, being awarded a 1x stake reward after triggering the main bonus round is not going to win over many players!
