Egyptian Emeralds Slot (Playtech)

Egyptian Emeralds Slot (Playtech)Egyptian Emeralds does not look like an original release given the common decorations that the developer has used on it.  The gemstones that are present on its reels, plus the Ancient Egypt backdrop are a common feature on many slot games.

However, given its many unique features, we will take a look inside to see whether it will prove to be a slot worth your time.

Game Set-Up

Egyptian Emeralds is a 5-reel slot game that also has 10 pay lines. For the rewards, you can expect up to 200x the stake per single spin.

This game is medium in volatility with an excellent RTP of 96.36%. Features include stacked wilds and re-spins.

Betting and Prizes

For Egyptian Emeralds, Playtech allows betting prices from as low as $0.10 to as high as $250 per spin.

Unfortunately, this slot machine has extremely low top payouts, and the maximum that you can get is 20x the stake per each line or 200x per spin.

However, you can boost your odds of getting better payout by using the wilds that land stacked.

Egyptian Emeralds Slot Features

The wild symbol comes in the form of a Scarab Beetle; that is decorated like a jewel.

With the help of the wild, you can form winning combinations of up to 20x the stake per each available line, or a total of 200x per spin.

Additionally, you can use the wilds as substitutes for the regular symbols but not the scatter.

To get the most out of this slot, you need to work hard to achieve what the slot refers to as the Scarab Respin.

This is achievable when you manage to get the Scarab Wilds to cover the three reels located in the middle, as stacked symbols.  This will reward you with a Scarab Respin.

I find it quite difficult to trigger this feature, but the moment I did it; I got a lot of potentials to make some good profits.  What I noticed is that the wilds that land on the 3+ reels result in plenty of wins, and you even get better results if respins are involved.

Theme & Design

Just as its title suggests, Egyptian Emeralds is an Ancient-Egypt themed slot game that comes with some gemstones decorations.

This theme is way too common, but Playtech has done a different design for this slot which gives it some little originality.

Otherwise, the theme is too boring now, and there is no more mystery left to find since this storyline has already been overused.

For the symbols, expect to find some gemstones that come in different shapes. Some of these shapes include Scarabs, Ankh, Eye of Ra, Lotus Flower, Bastet, Anubis, among several others.


The design of this slot is awesome, but Playtech misses the mark with this slot when it comes to entertainment.

Additionally, the payouts are quite low although the RTP is within the industry’s standard.

Overall, Egyptian Emeralds is a suitable game, but only for beginners and mid-level gamers.
