Mysterious Egypt Slot (Pragmatic Play)

Mysterious Egypt Slot (Pragmatic Play)Mysterious Egypt is a slot that was developed by the gaming giant, Pragmatic Play. The developer has borrowed inspiration from the popular Book-style mechanics.

Though highly volatile, the slot offers great features and good payout potential, and I will share my experience with it below:

Game Set-Up

5x3 is the common design on many modern slots, and it’s the same one that Pragmatic Play has used for Mysterious Egypt.

The slot has 10 pay lines, and among its main features are Mystery Expanding Symbols, and free spins.

Betting and Prizes

The slot offers two settings, and these come in handy if you are looking for a way to micromanage the total bet setup.

It is possible to modify the number of coins that go into each line, with 10 being available per case.

With this arrangement, you can start with as little as $10 per spin. The highest amount that Pragmatic Play allows for this slot $100 is per spin.

Mysterious Egypt has an impressive pay-out although it’s not any different from other Book-style slots that I have come across.

This slot offers about 5,600x the stake per spin, while a majority in this category don’t go beyond 5,000x.

It’s a medium-high volatility slot, but I’m satisfied with its RTP of 96.50%.

Mysterious Egypt Slot Features

The Mystery Symbol is the slot’s main feature. This feature will be selected randomly for each spin.

It the feature contributes to a win; it will end up expanding on the reels. You need 3+ such symbols appearing on as many reels as possible.

Then there is the icon that appears in the image of an Egyptian Queen. This is what will serve as both the scatter and the wild.

Naturally, they act as substitutes, but if you land them 3 to 5 times, they have the potential to deliver wins of between 2x and 200x the stake, in addition to triggering the free spins feature (will earn you 10 free spins for a start).

Since both of them can expand, they are capable of forming winning combinations on all the available lines, provided that they don’t land in a consecutive direction.

Theme & Design

The story is not anywhere near unique, and it is one that has already been overused. Ancient Egypt is the usual setting for this type of slots, but I must appreciate the high-quality design that Pragmatic Play has used.

The symbols present are the Queen (serves as the scatter/wild), Bastet, the Eye of Ra, Horus, Pyramid, and the Royals (10-A).


Mysterious Egypt is a great alternative if you are looking for something inspired by the Book-style.

The slot doesn’t use any book symbols, but it uses the same mechanics found on slots in this genre.

The payouts are great too, and so is the RTP that works perfectly for its level of variance.

I have no complaints about this slot, and I can recommend it to players of all levels to play for real money.
