Mistress of Egypt slot review
Mistress of Egypt slot by IGT may be yet another game with this old Nile theme but to be honest, nobody does them better than IGT via their traditions in the land-based casino market. Every slot play must have played Cleopatra, Cleopatra Plus or Crown of Egypt at least once either online or in a land-based casino and if they haven't, they've missed out on some classics! Here we get red reels, Egyptian music as we spin (which as usual is done brilliantly by IGT) and a background scene of a warm desert night with our mistress to the left and who looks remarkably like Cleopatra. Cleopatra or not, many intrepid explorers have left this land empty-handed or not at all, so will this be the case for our bankroll?
On The Reels...
This magnificent lady grants us 30 pay lines over 5 reels of 3 rows each and symbols appear stacked and singly, with one symbol seeming to appear super-stacked on the reels in each spin. You pay 30 coins to play and you get 200 for 5-of-a-kind of the Mistress and also the Pyramid Wild which means a full screen of either is only 100x bet! Ra or Anubis pays 120, Eagle or Cat 100 with four card values paying either 60 or 50 coins for a full line. You don't see Wild Pyramids usually as these are added randomly by the Mistress of Egypt on any spin, from 3 to 15 in quantity.
You may see a special grid triggered randomly on any spin when 5 or more white diamonds land. You will then get a grid with those diamonds shown as 3 to 10x bet multipliers and you get 3 respins with them held. Your 3 respins get reset when any further tiles are added. You can get coloured gems here for a Mini Pot of 15x bet, a Maxi Pot of 25x bet and finally 3 Purple Diamonds earns you the Minor Progressive and 3 Sapphires the Major Progressive jackpot.
Three or more Scarab Gem scatters triggers 10 free games, 20 or 75 for all five. As you may have already guessed it cannot be retriggered but the Mistress of Egypt will guarantee to be active on every single one of the spins with her 3 to 15 extra Wilds bestowed upon your grid.
Mistress of Egypt slot looks good, sounds great but as with most modern-era IGT slots totally lacks potential with a chronically poor 100x bet maximum win which alas IGT have done a few times before. True, we see a decent 95.60-96.20% RTP but what hope would you have of recovering from say 50 to 100x bet down in your session, with volatility as low as this? Your only hope aside from an unlikely progressive hit would be to trigger the maximum 75 free games for 5 scatters, but good luck with that! This is really one for land-based where players have different expectations than online slotters do. This mistress could prove to be a very expensive distraction, so don't let your eyes wander...
