Visually, Scarab has an ancient Egyptian theme – with the pyramids in the backdrop, it does look rather good. With an enchanting soundtrack, symbols on the reels include A, K, Q, J and 10 royals as well various Egyptian animal gods – Maahes (lion), Anubis (dog) and Horus (falcon). You also have Hatshepsut (female pharaoh), Eye of Ra and ankh cross.

The high priestess also appears – she is the most rewarding symbol giving you 2.67 times your stake for 5 on a payline – she appears 4-symbols high. There’s also a wild which performs all the usual replacing functions. Scarab comes with a Synchronised Reels feature which each reel including large stacks of the same symbol – this increases your chances of winning bigger.

Scarab benefits from a Wild Stays Charges The Pays feature – when a Scarab symbol appears on the reels in the base, it’s frame becomes locked. This happens for 10 spins – all scarab frames then transform into wilds which can give you decent results. This happens after every 10 spins.

The main attraction is the Free Spins Bonus feature – this is played when you get 3 or more pyramid scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. Depending on how many scatters you get to trigger the feature, you’ll be presented with 3 options:

3 Pyramid Scatters 4 Pyramid Scatters 5 Pyramid Scatters
15 free spins with 5 random wilds 30 free spins with 5 random wilds 45 free spins with 5 random wilds
10 free spins with 7 random wilds 20 free spins with 7 random wilds 30 free spins with 7 random wilds
5 free spins with 10 random wilds 10 free spins with 10 random wilds 15 free spins with 10 random wilds


Now, in either scenario, you choose to play with 5, 7 or 10 random wilds on every single free spin – I would always opt for more random wilds as this will lead to bigger wins most of the time. Furthermore, you can retrigger the feature up to 4 times meaning you could play with 225 free spins in total (with 5 random wilds on each free spin), 150 free spins (with 7 random wilds on each free spin) or 50 free spins (with 10 random wilds on each free spin).

Despite the high potential number of free spins and random wilds on every free spin, Scarab is a low to medium variance slot – the most you can win is 200 times your stake on every spin/free spin (if you fill the reels with high value High Priestess symbols and wilds).

For this reason alone, I believe IGT has missed a trick on a slot that looks good and has 2 good bonus features. I prefer playing more high variance offerings – if you like ancient Egypt though, your possibilities are plentiful with Play ‘N Go’s Book of Dead a superb choice.
