We Explore What Treasures Are to Be Found in the Latest Egyptian Themed Slot From Play’n GO – Ankh of Anubis!
Unibet Casino has just added the latest Egyptian themed Ankh of Anubis slot from Play’n GO to their casino, which comes with wins of up to 15,000x stake along with an unusual reel layout and collection style special feature with added wilds.
Whilst the Egpytian themed is definitely overused in slots, Play’n GO have tried to inject some new gameplay features into this machine to make sure it’s not just another generic themed slot.
The reel layout is an unusual diamond-shape which gives a total of 576 paylines with the pay any way format, the main base game feature is a randomly activated Anubis Wild feature which randomly added more wilds onto the reels creating more winning combinations.
The reels are not heavily stacked with matching symbols so to score big wins on this machine you are quite reliant on these wilds to create multiple winning ways,
The bonus round is triggered in the usual fashion awarding free spins with a special Ankh collection meter which when filled up will trigger a similar effect of added wilds onto the reels including at least one full wild reel.
The number of wilds added during this feature can lead to multiple wild reels being added which is the key to the biggest wins on this slot, along with smaller bonus re-triggers helping to extend the duration of the bonus round.
Nothing too spectacular really in terms of features but the potential of 576 ways of wilds does give this slot some big hit potential too which you can see in the gameplay video below.

Anubis Wilds Feature
The Anubis Wilds feature is randomly activated on any spin during base gameplay, a number of added wilds are then overlayed onto the reels giving the chance of more winning ways.
The Free Spins bonus round is triggered in the usual way with 3 or more Scatters (10 free spins), additional scatters will give you more additional starting free spins.
During the bonus round the special high paying Ankh symbols are collected when they land in view, once five are collected in the collection meter the Anubis Wilds feature is activated.
This feature adds at least one wild reel during the bonus rounds but has the chance of adding 5 fully wild reels awarding the maximum payout of 15,000x stake.
Multiple bonus re-triggers are possible on this machine but only grant 3, 4, or 5 free spins depending on the number of scatters that trigger it.
Ankh of Anubis Slot
The Ankh of Anubis slot is a fairly enjoyable release from Play’n GO, the features aren’t really anything breathtakingly new, but the proposition of 5 fully wild reels is definitely enticing.
In our playtests we did find this slot to be a fairly medium variance offering, with the biggest wins coming from the Anubis wild feature in the bonus round when 2 or 3 fully wild reels were added, generally though bonus rounds were in the range of 20x stake up to 250x stake, most generally under the 100x mark.
The biggest wins from this machine are totally dependant on the Anubis wilds feature, the lack of heavily stacked reels means you are super reliant on getting multiple wild reels for any of the big wins.
Possibly not enough innovation in this machine feature-wise to make you want to play it consistently but decent enough for a few bonus rounds, we would have liked an increased potency to the collection meter feature each time it was triggered to build more excitement!
