Ancient Egypt Slot
At first glance the Ancient Egpyt slot from Pragmatic looks to be a close rival to the slots it’s going to be directly competing with such as Book of Ra Deluxe and Book of Dead, but there is one major problem which will likely cause much annoyance and frustration to hardcore slot players and that is the bonus picking round and rewards on offer.
In essence not only do you have to first trigger the bonus feature which can take some time but then you have to dodge the “Low Reward” in the picking round which is an almost laughable 1x reward.
During our playtests of several thousand spins the best High Reward we picked was 80x stake, but generally, this was around the 10-15x mark.
The Free spins mode is exciting and what you would expect from a slot with expanding symbols, it’s super high variance and capable of some huge wins, but the overall playing experience is tarnished by the awful implementation of a picking round with such low rewards on offer.
