Eye of Horus Megaways Symbols/Theme

Eye of Horus Megaways is 1 of simpler-looking Megaways slots out there – with an ancient Egyptian theme, the all-seeing eye returns as it’s inspired by the original Eye of Horus game (made by Merkur Gaming and Blueprint Gaming). With cartoon style graphics and predominantly brown in colour, the graphics have a land-based slot machine feel which is true to the original game.

Symbols on the reels include A, K, Q and J royals as well as birds, ankh keys, flowers, scarab beetles and jackals. The most rewarding symbol is the Eye of Horus naturally with 6 in combination paying 20 times your total stake.

Expanding Horus wild

The Horus symbol is the wild – he substitutes for all symbols (bar the scatter of course). The wild only appears on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 (not reels 1 and 6). More importantly, the Expanding Wilds feature is triggered so the Horus wild symbol becomes a Horus wild reel. This can lead to plenty of wild reels on each spin.

Up to 15,625 ways to win

With 6 reels on display, each reel can contain up to 5 symbols each. If all reels display 5 symbols, you’ll benefit from the maximum 15,625 Megaways (i.e. 5 x 5 x 5 x 5 x 5 x 5 = 15,625). Winning combinations are formed by getting 3 or more matching symbols on successive reels beginning from reel 1 – i.e. getting the Eye of Horus symbol on reels 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5.

Free Spins feature

The main attraction in the Eye of Horus Megaways slot is the Free Spins feature – this is played when you get 3 or more pyramid scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. 3, 4, 5 or 6 scatters will give you a payout of 2, 20, 50 or 100 times your stake respectively.

Once in the feature, you will begin with 12 free spins. The expanding Horus wild is in place (like in the base game) but it comes with an extra magical property – each time the wild lands, it expands. Horus will then fire a laser beam at the symbols displayed above the reels – this in turn upgrades the symbol to the next high paying symbol in the paytable.

If you get multiple upgrades, you’ll be playing your free spins with the highest value symbols only which can result in much bigger payouts. This is known as the Upgrading Symbols feature.

Finally, the Horus wild also rewards you with additional free spins – 1, 2 or 3 wilds will result in 1, 3 or 5 extra free spins.

Eye of Horus Megaways thoughts

The Eye of Horus Megaways game is relatively simple for a Megaways title – it does keep true to its origins which is what Blueprint Gaming intended to do. Medium to high variance, it has an RTP of 95.49% and offers 10,000 x stake payouts on each free spin.

Graphically it’s not much to look at but I would recommend you try it if you want a simple introduction to the Megaways phenomenon. If you want to play the best Megaways slot, there’s no better game than Bonanza Megaways though as this is what put Megaways and Big Time Gaming (the creators) on the map.
