Think spooky pan pipes in the background, pyramids and mystic symbols - Legacy of Egypt from Play n Go is atmospheric - and then some! The Wheel of the Gods spins and your fortune is made because the Wheel of the Gods multiplies your fortunes and can grant you up to 20 free spins. The Eye of Horus sits in the middle of the wheel, watching over you - or is it? This game looks different from other games and is a really great change from all the run of the mill titles you see. It has 5 reels and 30 paylines. Read our full review below.
Gods a go go!Legacy of Egypt by Play n Go has more Gods than you could shake an asp at. There’s Anubis of course - the jackal, who looks like the rescue dog no one wants to take home. Then there’s Sekhmet who is goddess of war, healing, fire, plagues and the sun. This is multitasking gone mad - which one she does on any day of the week, probably depends on what kind of mood she’s in, but she’s obviously busy, busy busy. She’s often depicted as a lioness, as she is here. Sobek is the god of crocodiles. That’s it. Just crocodiles. So he has a pretty easy life. I mean how much oversight do crocodiles need? Not a lot. By and large, they can look after themselves. RA, the Sun God is boss when it comes to gods. He is usually depicted with the sun on his head so he really stands out. Obviously, we have to have Cleopatra, Queen of the Nile and sponsor of much eyeliner. Then there’s the Pharaoh, who looks a bit forbidding but he probably spends his time hanging out with Sobek, crocodile duties permitting. However, in Legacy of Egypt that’s all forgotten - because this Pharoah can pay you gold - get five of the Pharaoh and there’s a 10x multiplier applied to your bet.
Go wild during free spinsWhen the Wheel of the Gods gives you free spins (up to 20), that’s not all it gives. There’s a multiplier too, and it can reach 10x your wager. What’s more, the feature can be retriggered indefinitely.
Pyramid spinsPyramid scatter symbols in groups of two or more trigger the Pyramid Spins feature. You can win up to 16 free spins, and like the Wheel, the multiplier applied to each spin can go up to 10x your bet. Scatters are wild during free spins.
WildsThe wild symbol is the Egyptian beetle known as the scarab. It can replace any other symbol apart from the pyramid. Five beetles will scurry around netting you 16.66 times your stake. While a free spin is running, check for two wild scatters. Because if you get these, you’ll trigger the pyramid spins. Whatever multiplier was in place when the free spins were triggered, is applied. The Wheel of the Gods goes round and gives you between 3 and 8 pyramid spins.
It gets better……If you get three wild scatters during a free spin you’re eligible for the pyramid spins but this time you’ll get twice the amount on the Wheel - up to 16 pyramid spins. And as before, whatever multiplier you had when you triggered the free spin, applies to the pyramid spins. So the possibility for big wins is definitely there.
RTP and volatilityThe return to player (RTP) on Legacy of Egypt is 96.5% and there’s always a possibility, if the numbers stack up right, that you could win 5,000 on a spin. That’s the good news. There’s always a downside though, and of course, this is a high volatility slot. That means you can go a long time without a win while you wait for the big one to come up. It’s all a matter of temperament - if you don’t mind fewer wins while you chase a bigger one, you’ll love this high volatility slot. But if you’re happier with smaller, more frequent wins, you might find it frustrating.
Hundreds of titlesThis games developer has produced hundreds of games titles. This is partly because, for an online slots developer, they’ve been in the industry a long time. They started in the 1990s so they’ve been around in internet gaming (they describe themselves as “geeks”) since the beginning. The company culture isn’t dominated by a desire to be the biggest. Instead, they’re intent on offering the best titles. This probably accounts for their individual approach - their games don’t look like clones of everyone else’s and are usually more interesting to play.
Challenging gameplayCertainly, the gameplay in Legacy of Egypt is challenging - you have to be wide awake to stay on top of the different free spins features, and the changing multipliers. That will suit many slots players who get fed up with the routine of some games. And to be fair, during the Wheel of the Gods feature, you get prompts telling you how many free spins you have won, and what the applicable multiplier will be. Egypt is a total obsession for slot developers. There are literally dozens of titles set in ancient Egypt, so this game is entering a crowded field. However, it’s different enough, and the production values are high enough, to help it stand out from the crowd of other free slots.
