Dawn of Egypt slot review
Dawn of Egypt slot by Play'n Go takes us back to the deserts of Egypt and the promise of riches. Alas their other Egyptian slots aren't up to much as we saw not long ago with Doom of Egypt although the much-lauded copy of Novomatic's Book of Ra Deluxe, Book of Dead has been a huge success for the Swedish developer. Here we get a nice leafy temple as the backdrop with Egyptian music and sound effects as we spin the stone reels, nothing out of the ordinary thus far. Do will visiting this part of Egypt mean a new dawn for our bankroll, or permanent dusk?
On The Reels...
The 10 fixed pay lines over our grid of 5 reels and 3 rows tells us we may hit some big wins on Dawn of Egypt slot. Indeed, 5 Blue Pyramid scatters pays 1000x bet with the 5-of-a-kind wins Wild Scarabs 100x as is Ra, Cat 40x, Snakes or Scorpions 20x, Ankh or Flower 10x with four card values all at 5x for a full line. There's no random modifiers here but we do get Red Wild Pyramids which pay 100x for 5 scattered and trigger a secondary bonus within the free games. Each spin in the base game also stacks one of the picture symbols too.
Land 3 or more Blue Pyramids to trigger a wheel which will award 3 to 20 free spins. You now get Symbol Upgrades each spin which randomly choose one or more of the six picture icons to be upgraded for that spin, marked off on the top of the reels. If you see 2 or more Wild Red Pyramids you get extra Pyramid spins added for each with the upgrade for the triggering spin retained throughout, before returning to the normal free spins. You can win up to 5,000x bet as usual, Play'n Go tell us.
Dawn of Egypt slot is quite good although not the best in terms of graphics and animations, but the sounds are good. The base game does offer up some good wins occasionally but it's the feature that really holds the potential. You really need 10 or more spins to make it pay although getting the Pyramid spins within the free spins can get the total up if you hit them enough. You'll need a full screen or near it to make them pay really big with a decent 96.15% RTP to help you along. It's not exactly new dawn for slotting, but I'd give the game another go...Review by Gamingslots
