The city of Luxor has already inspired a Vegas casino and now it’s been given the slots treatment courtesy of Pariplay. This version of Luxor is played using a 5 reel, 243 ways to win game engine and comes with respins with expanding wilds, expanding reels and a bonus round that awards 10 or more free spins with stacked wilds. You’ll also have a chance to land a fixed jackpot prize. Play on all devices from between 50p and £25 per spin.
Like the Vegas casino of the same name, the design in the slot version of Luxor is pretty flashy. The setting is the chamber of a pyramid which is dripping in gold. On the reels you’ll see colourful A to 10 playing cards as well as an ankh cross, a gold ring embossed with the Eye of Horus, the jackal god Anubis and the Pharaoh’s queen. The Pharaoh himself is the top payer, awarding 20 times your stake if you land 5 on adjacent reels.
The scarab beetle is the wild. It substitutes for all other symbols bar the scatter when it hits on the middle 3 reels. Wilds can cause the reel to expand as well as awarding a respin.
Land 3 of the Tutankhamun’s mask symbol on the same spin to open the Pharaoh’s Tomb feature – you’ll then be offered a selection of urns. Keep on picking until you find 3 that match. You’ll win 10 free spins which are played out on different game engines that offer 243, 576, 1,125 or 1,944 ways to win.
You could also land a +5 free spins which adds an extra 5 free spins to your total, or 1 of 2 jackpot prizes that pay 100 or 2,000 times your stake. Stacked wilds are in play throughout the free spins too. Re-triggers are possible here as well.
You won’t see many better looking Egyptian-themed slots that Luxor. The bold graphics are superbly done and give the game a really luxurious feel. The gameplay is decent enough too. There’s nothing massively novel but the wild extras can provide plenty of action as can the expanded game engine in the feature.
The variance is in the medium range with potential payouts of 2,000 times your stake from the Grand Jackpot. Saying that, altogether, you can win a whopping 17,312.6 times your stake if you get the maximum wins in the feature on a 1,944 ways to win reel set!
The appetite for all things Egyptian shows no sign of slowing. If the ancient world is one of your top themes, then it’s well worth making this virtual trip to Luxor. I would also recommend you try Playtech’s Age of Egypt or Novomatic’s Book of Ra Magic which are more volatile.
