The Coins of Egypt slot is centred around mythology and is a quality release from NetEnt. It has five reels and 20 paylines, with bets starting from as little as 20p a spin. You will have two Ancient Egyptian characters guarding your temple and the reels as you play for Wilds, Coin Wins and free spins.
With enough sound effects to make you feel like you are sitting in the cinema, Coins of Egypt is an action-packed slot with plenty of features to keep you on the edge of your seat. The visuals are top quality, down to the flutter of wings on the reels with a win, which makes it all the more enjoyable to play.
Heading for the Temple
Preparing to embark on this Egyptian expedition is simple.
All of the 20 paylines are fixed and will be in play throughout every spin.
You can change the value of the coins you play against each payline, and the coin value is multiplied by the paylines to create your total bet. The minimum bet is 20p.
If you want to step up your stakes in Coins of Egypt, then you can also increase the level of your bet. This can add extra value to the bet against the paylines, and in turn, multiply the total bet by the amount displayed under bet level.
The total bet is shown just below the spin button underneath reel 3. Make sure you’re happy with this before you climb the steps into the wild game.
Or, if you’d prefer to kick back and watch as your energetic Coins of Egypt game unfolds, you can use the auto-play feature, and set a limit for how many spins can take place while you enjoy the view.
Quest for Coins
The higher value symbols in play are the Ancient Egyptian mythical figures, some of which you may be familiar with, others perhaps not so much. Either way, match three or more of the same symbols on one of the 20 paylines, and you will be awarded some of those precious Coins of Egypt.
The figure with the golden wings is the most valuable and landing five of these on a payline could pay out up to 1500 times your coin value.
A feline female figure with yellow eyes could pay out up to 750 times your coin value, and the green-eyes pharaoh has a maximum payout of 500 times your coin bet for a five-of-a-kind match.
The blue hound wearing the golden armour around its neck can pay out 400 times your coin bet, and the purple scorpion can award a maximum of 300 times the coin value for matching five of the same symbols on a payline.
Your lower value symbols are the small bugs with jewelled bodies. They are ultra-shiny and look a lot cuter than they may do in real life. Different colours are of different worth, and you could be looking at maximum payouts between 100 and 250 times your coin value for a five-of-a-kind match.
A golden and intricately designed bee clutching to a golden frame is the Wild symbol in Coins of Egypt. It can substitute for all of the standard symbols in play, to build and expand winning paylines.
As well as this, if you have a super-lucky landing, you may match up some of the Wild bees on a payline. You could be looking at a payout of up to 3000 times your coin value for a full five match across the reels.
Pharaoh Coin Win
Between one and three mini coins with values ranging from 2 to 15 times your bet can appear on the first three reels during every spin.
When a ‘Collect’ Pharaoh symbol lands on reel 5, you will collect all coins visible during that spin, and they will be added to your prize pot.
The Scatter symbol is a sphere of golden rings which can land anywhere on reels 1, 3, and 5. Land three scatters across these reels, and you will activate the free spins feature.
Before the spins begin, the total value of all coins on the reels during the triggering round are added to each chest. There are three chests; the Ruby Eagle chest, the Emerald Snake Chest and the Golden Cat Chest.
Up to three of the mini coins can appear on the first three reels during each free spin, and any which do land automatically add to the corresponding chests.
Throughout your free spins, the aim is to collect three identical seals which correspond in colour to one of the three chests. The seals can appear on reel five only during the free spins.
If you collect one, it will fit into one of the positions on the respective chest and glow. If you manage to do this with all three seals on one chest, the free spins will end, and you will win the contents of the winning chest.
Fun with the Pharaohs
This game has a lot of layers to it, all filled with different Egyptian goodness. Coins of Egypt is more than your typical themed game and brings something extra to the bonus features. The accompanying figures to either side of the reels, although intimidating, look like they may be there to guide us through the temple of riches.
The colours and effects in the Coins of Egypt slot game are fantastic, so if you are looking for something which has more oomph than your usual game, then you may enjoy a spin in this NetEnt production.
