Treasure of Horus is an ancient Egyptian-themed slot from Iron Dog Studios. It’s a 5 reel, 20 payline game that comes with high-end design and a 3-stage free spins bonus round where you can boost payouts with multipliers of 2x and 5x. Start your quest, on all devices, from between 20p and £40 per spin.

With so many similar slots on the market, we’re always hoping to see something a little different when we see a game with an Egyptian theme – Treasure of Horus does that. Visually, it ticks all the usual boxes. The palm trees, desert, ornate pillars and hieroglyphs are all present and correct.

Joining the A to J playing cards are coins, scimitars, the cast god Bastet and an ankh cross. Look out too for the scarab beetles that can scurry up the reels and deliver a wild. Land 3, 4 or 5 wilds in a payline and you’ll pocket 50, 150 or 750 coins.

The only feature on offer is the Free Spins feature – this is a little different from the norm though. To trigger it, you’ll need to land the dog god Anubis symbol on the middle reel. You’ll then enter the Anubis chamber and be awarded 6 free spins.

Look out here for the goddess Weret – if she lands on the middle reel during the feature, another 6 free spins will be added to your total. These are played out in the Tomb of Weret where a 2x multiplier wild joins the standard wild. Land the Horus symbol on the middle reel and you’ll progress to the 3rd and final level with another 6 free spins added to your total.

In these Tomb of Horus free spins, standard 2x and 5x wilds will be in play. As are the scatters which award 5, 10 or 25 times your total stake if you land 3, 4 or 5 of them anywhere on the reels on the same free spin.

Treasure of Horus is an innovative take on a classic theme. The design is good with sharp visuals and a haunting, Arabian-style backing track accompanying the action. The free spins round offers something fresh too. Watch for the scurrying beetles which can deliver some big multiplier rewards. This is a volatile game with potential wins of 2,562 times your stake with the 5x multiplier – just be warned if you have a limited bankroll.

The online casino shelves are groaning with slots set in ancient Egypt – Treasure of Horus is one of the better ones. With its classy design and novel bonus round, this is a desert trek worth making.  I also suggest you try other Iron Dog Studio games with Gifts of Ostara recommended.
