Heart of Egypt looks no different to the 100s of ancient Egyptian themed slots out there – with the famous pyramids in the background, symbols include A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 card suits. You will also see ankh crosses, eyes of Ra, scarab beetles and treasure chests. Cleopatra, the Egyptian queen, also appears and is the most rewarding symbol – 3, 4 or 5 on a payline will give you 2, 4 or 32 times your stake.

The heart gemstone symbol is the wild and substitutes for any other symbol (including the scatter) to help you form winning combinations. That scatter is the medallion – 3 or more (starting from reel 1) will give you access to the Free Games feature. 3, 4 or 5 will also reward you with 5, 10 or 50 times your stake. Once in, you then need to pick from several free spins and wild multiplier options:

  • 25 free spins with the blue heart as the wild – multipliers of 2x, 3x or 5x
  • 20 free spins with the violet heart as the wild – multipliers of 3x, 5x or 8x
  • 15 free spins with the pink heart as the wild – multipliers of 5x, 8x or 10x
  • 13 free spins with the green heart as the wild – multipliers of 8x, 10x or 15x
  • 10 free spins with the yellow heart as the wild – multipliers of 10x, 15x or 30x

Now, the wild symbol only appears on any of the 3 middle reels (reels 2, 3 and/or 4) which replaces all symbols bar the medallion scatter. You can also retrigger the feature to give you more free spins meaning up to 50 possible (with multipliers up to 5x) or up to 20 free spins (with multipliers up to 30x).

More importantly, keep an eye out for the ankh cross appearing on both reels 1 and 5 on the same free spin – these reward you with cash prizes of up to 50 times your stake. Heart of Egypt comes with an Extra Bet feature – this sets you back 20% of your stake (i.e. a £1 spin would cost you £1.20). When you trigger the feature, you will get 5 more free spins meaning there’s up to 30 free spins (with a potential 30x multiplier) or 60 free spins (with potential 10x multiplier).

Despite the huge potential multipliers on offer in the Free Games feature, Heart of Egypt is a medium variance slot – the most you can win is 500 times your stake per spin or free spin. To be honest, Heart of Egypt is just another ancient Egyptian themed slot with nothing unique to offer – I would much rather try my luck with favourites Book of Dead by Play ‘N Go or Book of Ra Deluxe from Novomatic.
