Playtech’s Egyptian Emeralds Slot Review

The Egyptian Emeralds slot is by Playtech and has 5 reels and 10 paylines. With an ancient Egyptian/gemstone theme, you can play from 10p to £500 a spin on desktop, mobile and tablet devices. It’s all about the scarab beetle wild symbol which, when appearing stacked, will give you respins where the scarab wilds shift around – this can lead to more respins.

Egyptian Emeralds Theme/Symbols

Visually, Egyptian Emeralds is rather nice – whilst it has an ancient Egyptian theme primarily, there’s a gemstone feel as the pyramids behind the reels are made of gemstones. It’s definitely unique and refreshing looks wise. Symbols include glittering gems that have hieroglyphs on them.

Bastet, the jackal god, is the most valuable symbol giving you 1, 3 or 15 times your stake for 3, 4 or 5 across a payline. The rather beautiful scarab beetle gemstone is the wild symbol – as well as replacing all other symbols, 2, 3, 4 or 5 on a payline will give you 1, 1.5, 5 or 20 times your stake.

Scarab Respins feature

The scarab beetle wild can appear stacked on the reels – when 3 of them appear on the 3 middle reels, you will trigger the Scarab Respin feature. With a free respin awarded, all triggering wild symbols shift to a random reel. If another stacked wild appears on any of the 3 middle reels, you’ll get another respin.

Egyptian Emeralds thoughts

The Egyptian Emeralds slot definitely looks different from other Egyptian themed slots. With an RTP of 96.36%, this medium variance game offers you payouts of up to 200 x stake per spin or respin. It’s not exactly going to set the world alight.

Whilst its unique in the way it looks, there are much better slots with the same theme – our recommendation would be Legacy of Dead from Play ‘n GO. If you’re a Playtech fan though, you should try their Age of the Gods series with Age of the Gods: Mighty Midas which offers you wins of up to 8.650 x stake wins on every free spin plus 4 progressive jackpots.
