Mysterious Egypt – Theme and background

Get to enjoy Mysterious Egypt in all its splendor. The scene is set along the banks of the River Nile, with pyramids and statues seen in the background. This is Ancient Egypt in all its power and glory. The soundtrack contributes to the overall atmosphere, making you feel like you’re the Egyptian Queen’s guest of honor.
 
Moving onto the symbols on the reels, we have the standard low-paying J, Q, K, and A royals which have golden Egyptian hieroglyphs decorations. The higher paying symbols are represented by the gods Horus and Bastet, as well as the pyramids. The most highest-paying symbol is the Eye of Ra, and landing a combination of up to 5 of those will get you a reward equal to 500x your bet.

Cleopatra can act as both a wild and a scatter symbol. Her symbol substitutes for all other symbols except for the scatter. Also, her symbol triggers the main bonus feature of the Mysterious Egypt slot.

Mysterious Egypt – Gameplay

Mysterious Egypt features a 5×3 grid and 10 active paylines. The stakes range between 0.10 and 100 per spin. To land a winning combination, you will need to land a minimum of 3 lower value symbols on the reels, or 2 higher value Egyptian symbols, beginning at the leftmost reel. The Egyptian symbols can expand vertically on the reels and cover all positions they land on. What’s more, they can pay from any position, this means that they don’t have to be adjacent to each other.
 
Mysterious Egypt has much to offer such as, wilds, scatters, free spins, expanding reels, as well as special mystery symbols. These all contribute to you making that potentially huge win, with the maximum payout possible from a single spin at 5,533x your bet.

Mysterious Egypt – Free spins

The free spins feature is activated when you land a minimum of 3 Egyptian Queen symbols on the reels. While the free spins feature is activated, if you land 5 Egyptian Queen symbols, you will receive an award equal up to 200x your bet.

Before you begin with your 10 free spins the slot will randomly choose two expanding mystery symbols. Landing more Queen symbols will cause the feature to be re-triggered and you will receive yet another round of 10 free spins, with there being no limit as to how many times the feature can be re-triggered.
 
The winning potential of the free spins feature is dependent on the values of the symbols. Let’s have a closer look as to how much they will pay if you manage to cover the reels with the same symbols:

  • Eye of Ra symbol pays 5,000x your bet
  • Pyramid symbol pays 2,000x your bet
  • Horus+Bastet symbol pays 750x your bet
  • A+K royals pay 150x your bet
  • Q, J +10 royals pays 100x your bet

Mysterious Egypt – My verdict

Upon first impressions of Mysterious Egypt, you can be forgiven for thinking, “Oh no! Not another Ancient Egyptian-themed video slot”. As there are so many similar titles out there, it seems that this release by Pragmatic Play will be just more of the same. However, we find that Pragmatic Play’s Mysterious Egypt kicks things up a notch. For starters. The expanding Mystery Symbols really can lead to big potential wins, and the Free Spins round offers a much more fun and entertaining experience. There’s also a decent-sized potential maximum win of 5,533x your stake to be won.

So, don’t dismiss this game too quickly. While it may not be the most complex or unique game out there, it does still offer exciting gameplay and worthwhile bonus features, plus it’s fun to play.
