Scribes of Thebes Symbols/Theme

As usual for a Blueprint Gaming slot, there’s little cause to grumble when it comes to the design of Scribes of Thebes. Flanked by a pair of nicely decorated pillars, you’ll see A to 10 royals as well as a scarab beetle, the cat god Bastet and a gold burial mask.

The Lara Croft style adventurer is the most lucrative symbol. Land 2, 3, 4 or 5 of the intrepid treasure hunter and you’ll pocket an award of 0.4, 4, 40 or 200 times your stake. The scroll symbol serves a dual purpose in Scribes of Thebes. It’s a wild and replaces all the standard symbols in a winning combination. It’s also a scatter so can trigger the game’s only feature (scroll down).

Free Spins feature

You can look forward to a payday of 2, 20 or 200 times your stake if you land 3, 4 or 5 scroll symbols anywhere on the same spin. You’ll also trigger the Free Spins feature and with it, 10 free spins. On each fee spin, a randomly chosen symbol will expand to fill the whole of its reel or better still, multiple reels. Land 3 scatters for a retrigger.

Double Book mode

You can ramp up the potential bonus round action by activating Double Book mode. This doubles your stake per spin. In return, the free spins round comes with some special extras. Instead of the standard 10 free spins, you’ll receive 15. During each free spin, 2 symbols will expand to fill their reels whenever they appear. Retriggers are possible too for 30 free spins altogether.

Scribes of Thebes thoughts

There’s nothing complicated about Scribes of Thebes. The best opportunities arise in the free spins round. Land a high value symbol as the expander and you can expect some explosive action. High variance, you can win up to 5,000 x stake on every spin or free spin.

Unfortunately, it joins a long list of slots that copy the mechanic used by Novomatic in Book of Ra Deluxe – many developers like Microgaming and Play ‘n GO have used it. Saying that, the latter offers you Legacy of Dead which offers sharper graphics, the same 5,000 x stake max win per spin but up to 9 special expanding symbols in the feature.
