Golden Egypt is an IGT-powered slot with 5 reels and 25 paylines. Playable from 25p to £500 per spin on all compatible devices like iOS and Android, you are taken back to ancient Egypt (once again) where you can benefit from stacked symbols, a wild for 2 subsequent base game spins and a Free Spins Bonus feature where you can choose from 3 free spins and random wild reels options.
Graphically, Golden Egypt is 1 of the better-looking slots we’ve come across – set on the River Nile with the pyramids in the background, the purple reels include golden coins, jewellery, Anubis, Cleopatra and Pharaohs amongst other ancient Egyptian characters. The Pharaoh takes up 2 positions on the reel and is the highest value symbol giving you 12 times your stake for 5 in combination.
In the base game, 1 randomly chosen symbol (except the golden coin, Bonus or Pharaoh) will be stacked on all reels to enhance your winning potential. Golden Egypt benefits from a Wild Stays 2 Plays feature – when you collect 2 golden coin symbols above any reel, it will turn that whole reel wild for the next 2 spins.
The other important symbol is the pyramid Bonus symbol – 3 or more will activate the Player Decision Free Spins Bonus feature. Depending on how many bonus symbols you got to trigger the feature, you will have 3 choices which give you various free spins and up to 3 random changing wild reels on each free spin:
- 3 Bonus symbols – 5 free spins with 3 random wild reels, 15 free spins with 2 random wild reels or 30 free spins with 1 random wild reel
- 4 Bonus symbols – 10 free spins with 3 random wild reels, 30 free spins with 2 random wild reels or 60 free spins with 1 random wild reel
- 5 Bonus symbols – 15 free spins with 3 random wild reels, 45 free spins with 2 random wild reels or 90 free spins with 1 random wild reel
I personally would opt for 3 random wild reels on just 5, 10 or 15 free spins as this will give you the best opportunity, in theory, for the bigger wins. You can also retrigger the feature by getting 3 or more Bonus symbols during a free spin which can lead to 180 free spins with 1 random wild reel on each free spin to 30 free spins with 3 random wild reels on each free spin.
Golden Egypt may take you back to ancient Egypt again but it’s well worth the trip – it’s a medium variance offering with maximum wins of 300 times your stake on each spin. The best chance of achieving the big wins is via the Player Decision Free Spins Bonus feature and choosing 3 wild reels per free spins. Overall, a great slot from IGT – I also recommend you try IGT’s Sphinx Wild which has a similar theme.
