Throne of Egypt Slot Review
Throne of Egypt joins a long list of Egyptian theme slots such as the very popular Queen of the Nile from Aristocrat and the equally popular Cleopatra and Cleopatra II games from IGT. The game is found at all Microgaming casinos and has a number of features which make it stand out from the already crowded Egyptian theme games.
The game uses the 5 reel, 25 line format and has a max bet of 5 coins per line or 125 coins total. Coin sizes range from 0.01 to 0.20 so you have a good range of choices when it comes to bet levels. As usual the more you bet the bigger the potential jackpots.
On the reels the Throne of Egypt logos are wild and appear stacked on all reels. Top pay is 2,000 coins for five wilds or 10,000 coins if you are playing max bet. While the 2,000 coin jackpot might seem a bit low you can get a whole screen of wilds which pays a big 250,000 coins at max bet.
After the top pay for the five wilds the King symbols pay 1,000 coins for five of a kind. This is followed by 500 coins for the five Lady symbols. The two animal men symbols come in next with pays 250 or 150 coins for five of a kind. While these wins might seem on the small side when you combine them with the stacked wilds you can get the same pay on lots of lines.
Throne of Egypt has two bonus features. The first bonus is free spins which are triggered by getting a scattered Snake symbol anywhere on reels one and five. You then win 15 free spins with all wins doubled. The free games can be re-triggered and the top jackpot for a full screen of wilds grows to 500,000 coins.
The second bonus on Throne of Egypt is the Eye of Horus Bonus. The bonus symbols only appear on the middle three reels and you need all three to activate the bonus. Once won you move to the first of three possible pick a box bonus stages.
- Stage 1 : Scarab Bonus (Screenshot)
On this stage you get to keep picking Scarabs until you find a key.
- Stage 2 : Eagle Bonus (Screenshot)
You get three picks. If you find a key you move to the next stage.
- Stage 3 : Princess Bonus (Screenshot)
You get one pick to reveal a multiplier of X2, X3 or X5.
Clearly you need to get to the final Princess screen to get the best possible wins on the Eye of Horus bonus as all wins from the previous two stages are multiplied by up to X5.
Overall, Throne of Egypt is another great stacked wild slot from Microgaming. While the Egyptian theme has been very well covered the game offers enough of a difference to make it a nice addition to the theme.
