Big Egyptian Fortune is an, yes, you've guessed it, Ancient Egypt-themed online slot by Inspired Gaming. And although the Ancient Egypt theme is hugely popular with developers and players, it's not one that Inspired Gaming has tackled very often. This developer is better known for games such as Reel King, so it's nice to see them take on the Egyptian theme.
Inspired Gaming always pays attention to the details in its designs, and this 5x3 slot is no exception. The symbols are not very original; lower paying card ranks 10 to Ace, and an ankh, necklace, bracelet, and Eye of Horus as premiums. But the graphics are brilliantly done, and the premium symbols wouldn't look out of place in a museum. There's also an explorer Wild and some treasure jars to add to the fun.
The betting range is from 0.20 to 100. To form a win, land three or more matching regular symbols on adjacent reels, starting from the first left on one of the ten paylines. The treasure jars payout for mixed combos in the base game.
There is an explorer Wild, which only appears on the reels in the bonus game, where he can substitute for all the regular symbols to form wins, and more.
The Scatter is a bonus symbol, and you need to land three at least to trigger the bonus Free Spins round.
You will also see treasure jars attached landing in both the base game and the Free Spins. In the base game, any combination of three or more jars on a payline will give you a payout, but their role changes in the Free Spins.
The main attraction of Big Egyptian Fortune is the Free Spins feature. This is where you have the best chance of collecting some potential winnings. But once you land three or more bonus symbols and before the Free Spins begin, there's the Match 3 Bonus.
Match 3 Bonus
The grid will change to a 3x2, 3x3, or 4x3 format, depending on how many Bonus Scatters triggered the round. Choose tiles to uncover Big Treasure values. When you find three matching values, this will be the highest value for the treasure jars during the Free Spins. The Big Treasure can be worth the following:
3 Bonus Scatters - 20x, 30x, 50x, 100x the bet
4 Bonus Scatters - 30x, 50x, 100x the bet
5 Bonus Scatters - 50x, 100x the bet
During the Free Spins, the Wild symbol comes into play. Whenever our intrepid explorer lands, he’ll crack his whip and collect any treasure jar in view. These will then award random cash prizes. If there is more than one Wild on the reels, the treasure jars will be collected by them all. And as a Wild, he’ll also help form winning combos.
When a Big Treasure symbol lands, it will stick in position until the explorer appears to collect it, as well as all the other treasure jars in view, and the round will end. There can be more than one Big Treasure symbol on the reels at any time, and it is theoretically possible to cover the entire grid in them. If this happens, the sum of all their values will be paid out. The great thing about this Free Spins bonus game is that it continues until the Big Treasure is collected, so you are basically guaranteed a win.
As well as great graphics, Big Egyptian Fortune offers players a Free Spins round that will keep on going and going until you hit that Big Treasure. So help our explorer crack his whip today here at Gala Bingo!
