Egypt Sky Online Slot Review
Egypt Sky is another Ancient Egyptian themed online slot. This time from Novomatic, the game has the usual five reels but a pretty decent forty paylines. All forty paylines are fixed, which means that you have to play with all of them. You can however choose to play each one for as little as one coin going up to 800 coins at the top end of the scale for all 40. This means that the game will appeal to a wide selection of budgets. Obviously the higher your bet range is, the more likely you are to hit the special features.
The graphics in Egypt Sky do kind of look like they are from the ancient age of brick and mortar slots compared to some of the newer games that are out there. The symbols are done in rather typical slot drawing style, with not too much detail. These are the same style and look of slot graphics that can be found on thousands of other slot games, so Egypt Sky does not really stand out in a world full of Ancient Egyptian themed slots. It does mean however that the game does run quite well on a small screen such as a mobile device like a phone or even a smart watch.
Ankh’s and Pyramids
Only the top paying symbols in Egypt Sky are theme based. And that theme is the very overdone one of Ancient Egypt, so we can expect a slew of typical Egyptian looking items parading across our reels. The very bottom symbols were definitely not found in Egypt however and are the usual 9 through to Ace from poker cards. These are pretty standard, done in different colours with no other embellishment except for some vaguely Egyptian looking patterns on some of them. These will pay up to 100 coins for five of them in a row.
Hieroglyphics are next up followed by a boat on the Nile. Chariots being pulled by some rather dangerous looking horses are closely followed by the standard of all Egyptian slots, Queen Cleopatra. The sun god Ra is the games highest paying standard symbol and will award you up to 2000 coins for five of him.
The Ankh is the games wild symbol, and can only be found on the second, third or fourth reel. This will replace any other symbol in the game except for the scatter.
The scatter has two functions. This view of the Pyramids not only launches the free spins round, but will also award you with the biggest payout in the game. Five of them can get you a whopping 8000 coins. Three or more give you three, four or seven free spins depending on how many scatters you found anywhere on your reels.
During the free spins round, the wild ankh not only stays intact but also expands. Still found on reels two, three and four, if it does land it grows to cover other spots and stays in place for the duration of the free spins. Unfortunately free spins cannot be retriggered during this round, so when they are over you will have to start again with stacking your wilds. This does happen relatively often however, so don’t lose hope.
