Egyptian Rise is a 5 reel, 243 ways to win slot which has been produced by Side City Studios and NextGen Gaming. Available to play on desktop, mobile and tablet devices, you can play from 40p to £80 per spin. The game has an ancient Egyptian theme with a twist.

You might be thinking – ‘another ancient Egyptian themed game’. Well, that’s true but it looks very different to what you’ve already come across. Firstly, it features all the usual symbols you’d expect such as the eye of Horus, the bird God, the cat God Bastet and the ankh. However, the style is neon – yes, neon! As a result, Egyptian Rise looks fantastic and really gives the game a modern and unique twist.

The scarab beetle symbol is the wild and substitutes for all other symbols – it’s also the highest value symbol rewarding you with 800 times your line stake (or 20 times your total stake) if you manage to get 5 on a payline. The other high value symbols are Cleopatra and the Pharaoh who gives you 400/250 times your line stake respectively for 5 on a payline.

This game benefits from the On A Roll feature where any winning spin rewards you with a free re-spin. More importantly, scarab wilds are added at the beginning of each re-spin to increase your winning potential. If you have 2 consecutive winning re-spins, wilds are added to reels 2 and 4. On the 3rd consecutive win, wilds are added on all 5 reels.

If you’re lucky enough to get 4 consecutive winning re-spins, you will activate the Pharaoh feature – a further 5 scarab wilds are added during the feature to send your win potential sky high. There is no set amount of free spins you can win – there are 3 Pharaoh tokens with 1 of them being removed when you have a non-winning spin. Therefore, the feature ends when you have 3 non-winning free spins altogether.

I really like Egyptian Rise and it definitely has something unique about it in terms of gameplay and the way it looks – NextGen Gaming have really developed something I’m sure you’ll love. Variance wise, it’s medium to high with the bigger wins coming in the Pharaoh feature. If you like ancient Egyptian games with a twist, Leprechaun Goes Egypt by Play ‘N Go is a good choice.
