Special Features

The first feature to discuss is the Wild symbol and this is represented by an image of a scarab. This symbol substitutes for all other symbols apart from the Scatter to help form winning combos on the reels. Keep a close eye on this symbol as it is also the most valuable symbol in the game. Land 5 Wilds on an active payline then you’ll be walking like an Egyptian with a fantastic payout worth 16.6X your initial bet!

The Scatter symbol is illustrated by a beautiful looking pyramid that is made up of 3 rotating pieces. Land 3 of these symbols to trigger the Wheel of the Gods bonus game. In this feature, you get to spin a wheel where you will be awarded a bunch of Free Spins ranging between 3 and 20. Each Free Spin comes with a random multiplier which is displayed on the top of the reels and varies between 2X all the way up to a massive 10X! The Scatter symbol payouts like a Wild symbol during Free Spins. It’s also possible to retrigger this feature to give you up to 20 extra Free Spins and to do this all you need to do is land 3 more Scatters while in this feature.

Land 2 Scatter symbols during a Free Spin and you will trigger the Pyramid Spins feature. Here, you will be awarded up to 8 Pyramid Spins via the Wheel of Gods feature where each of theses spins retains the multiplier value (as high as 10X) of the Free Spin that triggered the feature. If you are lucky enough to get 3 Scatters during Free Spins then you will trigger the Pyramid Spins feature but with double values on the Wheel of Gods meaning you can land up to 16 Pyramid Spins along with the potential of a 10X multiplier for each spin as well.

Theme and Graphics

The graphics are top-notch and what we have come to expect from stellar software studio Play’n GO. The game takes place smack dab in the middle of Ancient Egypt with beautiful looking pyramids in the background and highly decorated pillars full of coloured hieroglyphs in the front. Symbols are expertly designed and consist of Cleopatra, a Pharaoh, and the Egyptian Gods Anubis, Ra, Sobek, and Sekhmet as well as traditional A – J icons. The animations are very stylish as symbols fall into place on the reels and highlight nicely with a wonderful light blue frame when part of a winning combination on the reels.

The music is atmospheric and ramps up in tempo as you inch closer to landing a big win. It compliments the Ancient Egypt theme of the game superbly.

The game has 30 paylines, a high RTP of 96.5%, and a top maximum payout of 5,000X your total bet.

Our Verdict on Legacy of Egypt

Play’N GO produced this highly enjoyable slot and it’s certainly a cut above other Ancient Egypt-based slots thanks to amazing graphics, excellent gameplay, and a nice set of bonus features. I was able to trigger the Free Spins bonus game quite a few times when playing and it’s just fantastic that you get a random multiplier as high as 10X applied to each Free Spin. The highly lucrative Pyramid Spins feature took me longer to trigger but patience pays off in the end as each Pyramid Spin retains the multiplier value obtained from the triggering Free Spin to further boost your chances of landing a huge payout on the reels. I found this slot to be of high variance so you’ll need a considerable bankroll and lots of patience before you land a big win on the reels in this game.
