Crown of Egypt

Crown of Egypt slot was released by IGT in late 2012. The game is available online as well as a real slot machine. Hence, the gameplay is unmistakably similar to classic one armed-bandits.

Regardless, there are some unusual features that most classic slots don’t have. From the game’s spinning mechanic to its paylines and bonuses, Crown of Egypt outshines most video slots in some respects.

So, if you enjoy Egyptian style and symbolism, this release from the most popular game developer will pique your curiosity.


Crown of Egypt Mobile Slot Game Mechanics

Here are some main details of the game:

  • Original Release Date: December 2012
  • Reel Layout: 5×4
  • Paylines: 40 Paylines + 1,024 Ways to Win
  • RTP: 95.03%
  • Bet Limits: £1 – £4,000
  • Features: Wilds, Free Spins

Yes, got that right. The game pays in two different ways simultaneously. It has regular win lines as well as the ‘all ways win’ mechanic in place. “But don’t these payout methods overlap?”, you may ask.

Indeed, they do. They have been separated into two separate methods because each player can choose their preferred way. You may play on just 40 lines for a regular price or you may trigger additional 986 paylines for a double bet.

MultiWay All The Way

We hope that there’s no need to tell you which method is better? Multiplying the number of win lines by about 25 times for just twice as many coins? This is a great offer even considering the downside of this gameplay mode.

The drawback is that all symbols (of which there are nine, excluding the special ones) are worth less this way. The penalty reduces each symbol’s value differently, ranging from 4x to 10x lower value.

As we have already told, though, even this drawback doesn’t hamper this option. It’s still better than the regular one. As long as you have enough funds, you should always choose it.

Besides, speaking of funds, this is no game for a low-budget player. Each payline on this game costs £1. It’s £2 if you activate the MultiWay. So, with all lines active (you can adjust that too), you’ll pay £80 per spin.

The game isn’t unique in terms of bonuses, though. It includes wild symbols on reels 2 to 5. There are also scatters, which trigger up to 20 free spins.
