Crown of Egypt is IGT’s second slots game that features 1024 ways to win. It has the same number of pay lines with Treasures of Troy, one of the most popular casino slots games. Although IGT has developed some mediocre-looking video slots, we can immediately say that the Crown of Egypt wins in the looks department. But how does it fare when it comes to in-game features and RTP? Let’s take a closer look.
One can easily say that the Crown of Egypt is one of the most beautiful slots game there is. Compared to Kitty Glitter and Da Vinci’s Diamonds, Crown of Egypt has realistic looking symbols and characters. Every spin is infused with stunning visuals and appropriate sound effects that take you back to the glorious days of Ancient Egypt. The reels and symbols are filled with rich colors and the symbols are well-detailed. There is really no shortage of Egyptian-inspired slots games but Crown of Egypt takes the top spot when it comes to animation and design.
Crown of Egypt gets top marks for its stunning symbols, especially the almost life-like Egyptian Pharaoh and Czarina which are top paying symbols of the game. The symbol bearing the logo of the game is the Wild symbol and can substitute for any icon except the Bonus symbol. Famous Egyptian symbols and gods are also seen in the game, together with standard slots machine symbols, Ace, King, Queen, and Jack.
Crown of Egypt is a 5-reel video slot with 40 pay lines and boasts of 1024 Ways to Win. In order to activate the 1024 Ways to Win feature, you need to bet an additional 40 coins. Unlike IGT’s Pamplona slots game with fixed pay lines, you can easily increase or reduce the number of lines in Crown of Egypt. This makes the game appealing to both high-limit players and players with limited budgets. If you are familiar with slots game Treasures of Troy, you know exactly how Multi-Ways work. The core feature of the Crown of Egypt is its Multi-Way function. In a nutshell, this Multi-Way feature makes it possible to fill all the reels with matching symbols for huge payouts!
A word of caution: you should have deep pockets in order to enjoy the game for a long time. Although Crown of Egypt’s 1024 ways makes it utterly possible to enjoy colossal wins, you need an ample budget to commit to it long-term.
Multi-Way Xtra Pays allows you to create winning combinations simply by collecting the same symbol anywhere on the reels. Crown of Egypt not only pays from left to right, but it also matches symbols either up or down the columns.
To activate the Free Spins bonus round, you simply need to collect two Bonus symbols on the middle column. You are awarded 10 free spins for 2 Bonus symbols, 15 spins for 3 Bonus symbols and 20 free spins for 4 Bonus symbols. The Free Spins bonus can be retriggered anytime during the free spins game.
Although the Crown of Egypt possesses good volatility and an RTP of 95.03%, you must be willing to invest in it while waiting for huge returns. The Multi-Way feature increases the likelihood of big wins, but you need a hefty capital in order to achieve it. If you are looking for an action-packed, ancient civilization-inspired game, then look no further. You will surely enjoy the trip down the Nile to obtain the riches of ancient Egypt!
