Spin that reel – Legacy of Egypt slot review

Experience the divine magic and mysticism that has been exalted along the Nile since ancient times in Legacy of Egypt. Legacy of Egypt is a well designed slot game from provider Play ‘n Go and it has a bit of Book of Dead mixed with Montezuma, so it seems. It has an old Egyptian theme and the design is pretty well done. This video slot comes with 5-reels, 3-rows and 30 paylines and can be played from as little as €0.30 all the way up to €90. Legacy of Egypt has an RTP of 96.5% and a max win potential of 5000x per single spin in the free spins game.

The game includes a wild symbol, the Scarab, and a free-spin scatter symbol, the Pyramid. The wild symbol substitutes for any other reel symbol except the scatter symbols to help comprise winning combinations. The Wild is the most valuable symbol and gives you 16,6x for 5 of a kind. The most valuable regular symbol is Cleopatra which gives a return of 10x for 5 symbols across any payline. The other premium symbols are represented by Anubis (the god of embalming and the dead), Sobek (the ancient god of crocodiles), Ra (the sun god) and the Pharaoh (King of ancient Egypt).

Bonus game: Wheel of the Gods

The game is all about the Wheel of the Gods feature where you spin a wheel to win up to 20 free spins. Three or more Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels will trigger the Wheel of the Gods – a spinning wheel which determines how many Free Spins are awarded. Players can initially win 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 15 or 20 Free Spins. At the start of each free spin a multiplier is awarded randomly and can be: 2x, 3x, 5x, 8x, or a whopping 10x.

Two Wild Scatter Symbols during a Free Spin will award Pyramid Spins – Free Spins within the Free Spin round, which retain the multiplier from the triggering spin. The amount of Pyramid Spins awarded is determined by the Wheel of the Gods and can be 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 or 8.

Three Wild Scatter Symbols during a Free Spin will award Pyramid Spins, but this time doubling the values on the Wheel of the Gods. Pyramid Spins can be triggered from within Pyramid Spins with the same conditions applied.

Our verdict

Play’n Go surprised us with this game because it is pretty exciting to play. It’s not a ground breaking new game in any way, but it the design is really good and so is the gameplay. But the key factor that makes this game so nice to play, is without a doubt the Wheel of the Gods bonus game. Yes, we know this from the popular evergreen game Montezuma, but somehow they managed to integrate this really well in this new game. So go on, give it a spin and land that 10x in the bonus game!
