Crown of Egypt
Crown of Egypt Slot Machine
Ancient Egypt is a very popular theme for slot manufacturers, second only to Asian themed games in terms of overall numbers in my estimation. Fortunately, Crown of Egypt is a little more than ‘just another Egyptian slot’, with some interesting features and better (smoother) graphics than most other games in this genre. This slot has some stiff competition; one of the most popular slots around is the Cleopatra game, which shares many of the same symbols.
Crown of Egypt uses the latest ‘MultiWay Xtra’ technology. The reels are on a 5×4 grid, and you can choose the 1024-ways to win option. This pays for consecutive symbols starting on the left, regardless of which reel they fall on – taking the guesswork out of whether a symbol has fallen on a win line or not. You’ll also get enhanced pay-outs with more symbols on the same reel with this system.
Symbols seem to land more gently than other slots in this game, and they look great too. All the clichés are involved, the pharaoh, Cleopatra, Sphinx and some sinister looking godlike statues. The background music is classic for this kind of game, dreamy noises and muffled drums, mixed in with the occasional gong-like chime. There are some basic animations, though nothing stand-out.
With only one free spins round, this slot is not feature-rich. On the plus side you can win up to 20 spins, and this can be retriggered.
