Crown of Egypt is the second of IGT’s 1024 Ways to Win slots games and followed hot on the heels of Treasures of Troy, the Greek themed proto-type.
The Egyptian theme is a popular one in many styles of online slots games, but in Crown of Egypt the graphics are gorgeous and the gameplay exceptionally smooth. With every win the graphics flash on the screen and become animated and the soundtrack, which is the fairly typical Egyptian drum, flute and maracas combo, picks up in tempo.
Crown of Egypt Slots Basics
Crown of Egypt online slots features 5 reels and 40 paylines, with a whopping 1024 Ways to Win. Boasting a multi-way winning feature that is the games real draw card, players are offered winning opportunities aplenty.
The reel of the game are covered in potentially winning symbols and lining up any sort of winning combination, left to right but not necessarily in a straight line will see a player claim a payout.
A low to medium volatility slot, Crown of Egypt offers regular wins that are as high as 50x a bet. This slot is not suggested for new players or those on a low budget, but it can be very rewarding for those who stick it out for a longer period of time.
An incredibly graphic-rich game, Crown of Egypt’s reels are emblazoned with images that perfectly suit the theme. Cleopatra, Anubis, Ra, Hathor, Pharoah, the Pyramids and the game logo are all present, as are richly coloured poker card symbols.
In Game Bonus Features
Crown of Egypt’s in-game bonus features are almost not as rewarding as its 1024 Ways to Win, but they do add extra weight to every spin and increase the chances of a larger payout.
MultiWay Xtra Pays
The MultiWay Xtra Pays feature works in a players favour, as paylines don’t only run left to right, but up and down too. To trigger a win, players need to have the same symbol appear 4 or 5 times anywhere on the reels. To calculate a win, each of these symbols is added together and then multiplied. Hitting the MultiWay Feature as often as possible is the ideal way to boost winning potential.
Free Spins Bonus
If 2 or more bonus symbols appear anywhere in the centre column players will be rewarded with free spins. 2 Bonus symbols result in 10 free spins, 3 in 15 free spins and 4 in 20. These spins can also be re-triggered during the bonus round and in theory there could be up to 130 free spins up for grabs at any given time. Adding in the multiplier and the multi way win players could see themselves claim a payout of 500x their initial bet.
Winning Opportunities Galore
With a 95.03% payout rate, a coin betting range of 0.001 to 100, free spins, a MultiWay Xtra Pays feature and a Wild symbol that stands in to create a winning result when least expected, Crown of Egypt is packed full of winning opportunities.
An IGT Egyptian online slots game that’s been around since 2012, it remains as rewarding as the day it was released.
