How to Play
Big Time Gaming loves licensing its MegaWays engine to other slot creators, so if you’ve tried Rainbow Riches MegaWays then you will be right at home here. Played across six reels and 117,659 Ways to Win, you can use cascading reels to further enhance your wins.
Starting the slot is easy, with all the main buttons such as spin and betting ranges, clearly displayed on screen, just off the edge of the pyramids. When you make a winning combo, the symbols disappear and new ones fall in from above, a la Tetris style, until no new wins are made.
The standard card values, Nine to Ace make an appearance as the low value symbols, while the high payers are more in keeping with the ancient Egyptian theme. Expect to see the Eye of Horus, Cleopatra, a Pharaoh’s Mask and a Scarab. You will have seen similar symbols on slots like NetEnt’s Mercy of the Gods and other Egyptian-themed slots, but they definitely deliver an active sense of place.
Fans of the Mummy film will remember the Scarab being synonymous with something getting under your skin, but you can put those fears to rest on Anubis Wild Megaways. This time round the desert beetle is much more rewarding, giving you 50 times your stake for six of a kind.
Wild symbols substitute for all other symbols (except Scatters) to help form winning combos, while the Mystery symbols which will change to reveal a same matching pay symbol and give you more wins.
While it’s essentially only the Free Spins which stand out as the bonus feature of this slot, there are some enhancements that enhance the gameplay.
