Join a pair of adventurers hunting for hidden Egyptian treasure in Eye of the Amulet – created by iSoftBet, it’s a beautifully designed 5 reel, 40 payline slot. Look out for the special sandstorm feature that can blow 5 of a kind winners, extra wilds and wild reels into play. There’s also a free spins round complete with added wilds and multipliers. Head to the pyramids, on all devices, from between 20p and £20 per spin.
The design in Eye of the Amulet has a glossy feel – with a pair of mighty pyramids in the background, the reels are flanked by swaying palm trees and chests full of treasure. Joining the lower value playing cards are an ankh cross, the Sphinx and male/female adventurers.
The Lara Croft-style woman is the most rewarding paying 10, 75, 200 or 1,000 coins if you land 2, 3, 4 or 5 on a payline. Look out too for the scarab beetle which is the wild – it replaces all other symbols except the Amulet scatter. Eye of the Amulet comes with 2 feature rounds – they are as follows:
Sand Storm feature – this can hit at random on any spin. If the winds get strong enough, they can deliver added wilds, a 5-of-a-kind win, wild reels or a trigger for the Free Spins feature.
Free Spins feature – this round is triggered by landing 3 or more amulet scatters or via the Sand Storm feature. You’ll receive 5, 10 or 15 free spins depending on the number of scatters. Before the feature begins, you’ll get to spin the Bonus Wheel.
This offers up to 4 extra wilds, 2x multipliers and added free spins. Keep on spinning until the pointer lands on the Stare Free Spins icon. Once in the feature, 2 or more Amulet scatters will reward you with additional free spins – there’s up to 100 free spins in total to be won.
Eye of the Amulet is modern a very take on a classic theme. The visuals are high-end and there are blasts of Arabian-style music to herald each winning spin. No complaints on the design front then. The features aren’t bad either, especially the Free Spins feature where the added goodies on offer from the Bonus Wheel can have a big impact.
Online casino shelves are already groaning with ancient Egyptian-themed slots. There’s always room for a new one if it’s good enough though and Eye of the Amulet certainly is. Combining high-def design with some interesting extras, this is a desert trek worth undertaking. I found it to be a medium to high variance title. If you like the theme, ELK Studios’ Hidden is recommended.
