Coins of Egypt is, yes – you guessed it – another Ancient Egypt themed game to join the expanding collection of Egyptian online and mobile slots. Before you sigh (if you’re getting tired of the repetitive theme), stay with us for a moment; as this one is developed by NetEnt. If you love NetEnt games as much as we do, we should have captured your attention by now! NetEnt are renowned for unique, high quality game development and we can assure you that Coins of Egypt is no exception.
This consistent theme within the online slot community tends to conjure up the same old Egyptian imagery, similar gameplay and a general pleasant yet simplistic online slot appearance. Don’t make that assumption with Coins of Egypt; for here we have a screen filled with truly impressive, high definition graphics, accompanied with stunning animations. The atmosphere is dark, intense, mysterious and atmospheric. The reels are 5×3 layout, with 20 pay lines. The moment the game loads, its superiority is recognisable. Let’s delve into the features and gameplay.
There are a bunch of intense-looking characters making up the higher value symbols, plus 5 intricately-designed scarabs as lower value icons. The beautiful scarab symbol that truly stands out is the wild; this will substitute all symbols except for the chest seal icon, the scatter and the ‘collect’ symbol.
The collect symbol is Tutankhamun himself. During the main game, the Pharaoh Coins Win feature may be triggered at any point; that’s if the collect icon lands on the 5th reel. You’ll notice that during each spin, 1-3 coins showing varying values appear on reels 1, 2 and 3. These values can be anything from 2 – 15x your bet. If the collect symbol lands on reel 5, all visible coins will be gathered and put towards any winnings.
Three scatters appearing on the 1st, 3rd and 5th reels activates Coins of Egypt’s free spins game. To start, you’ll notice there are 3 different chests: Ruby Eagle, Emerald Snake and Golden Cat. The total value of the coins present on the reels is placed within each chest, and any further coins that land during free spins will be placed within the respective chest.
During free spins, there are 3 chest seal icons that can land on reel 5. If a chest seal lands, it will be collected and added to its corresponding chest. Once 3 matching chest seals have been collected, the bonus game ends and the total value of coins in that chest are awarded.
There may be more Egyptian-themed slots out there than we can remember, but we’re pretty confident that Coins of Egypt is a cut above. Incredible graphics and intricately-designed icons and reels, an intense atmosphere and a unique feature in terms of collecting coins during each spin; these are all factors in the making of a high quality slot. Try it out for yourself.
