Egyptian Tombs (Microgaming)

Egyptian Tombs (Microgaming)Microgaming loves the Ancient Egypt theme, and this developer has a couple of slots with this theme.

Their latest is known as Egyptian Tombs that they have developed in partnership with Snowborn Games.

At firsts, I was not quite impressed with the theme, but as I got deeper, I realised just how much the slot has in terms of potential.

Here is more about Egyptian Tombs.

Game Set-Up

Egyptian Tombs offers 5x5 reels, with up to 3125 ways to win. As a real money gamer, I was quite impressed with its potential to pay as much as10,000x the stake ($240,000).

Present symbols include scatters, Wilds, Super Spins, and free spins. However, it is also important to note that this title is highly volatile which means that it is quite risky to play.

Betting and Prizes

With only 20 coins, I was able to spin the reels of Egyptian Tombs. However, the slot allows for bets of up to $24 per spin.

With the help of some of its features, you can win as much as 10,000x the stake from just one spin.

Even with high volatility, Egyptian Tombs offers a decent RTP of 96.18%.

Egyptian Tombs Slot Features

The slot requires that you form winning combos using at least 5 symbols on each reel. This is a little tough and gave me pretty of a hard time.

With 3+ consecutive reels that also have matching symbols, the slot will pay you.  

Wilds may not be of much help when used on their own, and you will need to combine them with other symbols.

Another major feature here is the Super Spins. With it, you get either Ra scatters or in other circumstances some top paying symbols.

Scarabs are what Microgaming has used as scatters, and they come in handy when you want to trigger some free spins.

Eye of Ra symbols is the icons that you need to trigger fixed jackpots. With 5 to 10 appearing in a single spin, the slot rewards you with between 2x and 10,000x the stake.

Theme & Design

As I mentioned earlier, this slot borrows its inspiration from Ancient Egypt.

I cannot say that this title is anywhere near original, and there are several symbols on it that I have seen many times before.

However, the developer has put in a lot of work in the design, and I love the quality that is way better than on most slots in its league.

Egyptian Tombs list of symbols include Eye of Ra icons, Bastet, Scarab scatters, Cleopatra, Horus, Ankh, Pyramid, and some low-value Royals (J to A).


Egyptian Tombs is not a bad slot, and the game has a lot to be proud of. The RTP is quite decent, and so are the payouts.

Although it's not entirely original, I had a pleasant experience with it, and I can recommend it to all levels of players.
