Ancient Egypt is one of the most fascinating eras in history and there are hundreds, if not thousands, of documentaries, movies, books and museums on the period across the world. Despite being 5,000 years ago it also proves to be one of the most popular sources of inspiration for the world of online slots too. Let’s take a look at Egyptian Themed Slots!
All the biggest online casino software providers will have some form of Ancient Egypt themed slot, but the question is, which are the best? We’ve delved into the details and done all the difficult testing so you don’t have to, to uncover which Ancient Egyptian themed slots should be worshipped like Cleopatra, and which should enter a tomb and never return…
Cleopatra is a real favourite with players here at Moon Bingo and was given a rating of 4.7 out of five in our in-depth review. That’s mainly thanks to its incredible gameplay and perfectly thought out theme.
As you can guess by the name of the slot, the main focus of the theme is Cleopatra, the last ruler of the Ptolemaic Kingdom of Egypt and it has all the style and glamour you’d associate with her. It carries a catchy Egyptian style soundtrack, as well as all the symbols bearing association to the period, with the likes of the scarab beetle, eye of Ra, lotus, and, of course, Cleopatra herself, the highest paying of the symbols.
The main feature that really elevates the Cleopatra slot is the Sphinx Scatters which can offer up to 4,500 times your stake if you really make the most of this free spins round, while there are plenty of smaller multipliers on offer which can prove useful too. Created by IGT it’s comfortably one of the best out there in the genre, and with a low minimum bet and relatively high maximum bet (£40), this five reel, 20 pay line slot is an absolute classic.
Temple of Iris
Another popular slot with Moon Bingo players is Temple of Iris, a slot that isn’t focused on an individual, but offers an adventure through the crypts of Ancient Egypt. It’s a slot that graphically sets the mood and tone superbly, making you feel like Indiana Jones as you spin those reels.
The slot itself is a five-reel, 25 pay line slot that has a staggering 3,000,000 coin jackpot, with bets starting at just 1p with the opportunity to play up to £50 per spin. It’s an Eyecon slot that really does deliver, particularly with the iconography, which really does elevate the theme. There are pyramids, sphinxes, cobras and more, with some great bonus rounds too. Landing the Priestess Wild will provide multipliers, while the Pyramid Scatter also offers a number of free spins. It’s a simple to play slot and one that continues to build its reputation as one of the best in any genre or theme.
Pyramid King is a fantastic slot from the team at Pragmatic Play and offers the chance to win as much as a thousand times your stake in some cases. It’s a five reel, 25 pay line slot that offers some great bonus features, all set to a backdrop of the ancient pyramids.
It’s a slot that has a number of classic features, such as free spins when landing three scroll symbols and a money respin feature that can offer some great multipliers. The slot itself is brightly themed, with the landscape the stand-out in terms of graphics. There’s plenty going on with the symbols too, with some classic Ancient Egyptian iconography, including the Sphinx Wild.
The slot itself has a relatively large betting scale, suitable for both low and high stakes players, while the RTP is 96.5%, one of the highest for any Egyptian themed slot.
John Hunter Book of Tut
It’s fair to say many of us associate Indiana Jones with the tombs and treasures of Cairo and John Hunter certainly takes inspiration from that. The Book of Tut is one of a number of slots in the John Hunter series and is another great slot from Pragmatic Play.
You can win up to 5,000 times your stake in this slot, which really is an adventure looking for hidden treasure. The free spins feature on this five reel, 10 pay line slots is where the big bucks can be won, with the John Hunter symbol landing during them offering that 5,000, while landing lower paying symbols can still provide a minimum of 100x your stake.
The design of the slot is one of the finest Egyptian themed out there with smart and stylish symbols and a backdrop that really casts you into the heart of the desert. It’s another 96.5% RTP and you can make a spin in this game for as little as 10p.
Pharaoh Sun is a slot that pays homage to the pharaohs of Ancient Egypt, and this slot really packs a punch with 243 ways to win in the standard game and over 3,000 when it comes to the free spins.
Triggering the free spins bonus is the goal, where you can really win some good prizes if the symbols land in your favour. It’s a five reel slot with a number of different jackpots available, with bets starting at a minimum of 10p. It is a popular slot with low stakes players, particularly due to its free spins, which is enjoyed by landing the golden scarab wild.
Graphically, it certainly stands its ground with the online slots mentioned above, with some superb looking symbols and a soundtrack that fits seamlessly into the theme. It also transfers fantastically to mobile play on our Moon Bingo app, and it’s perhaps more considered a bit of a hidden gem when it comes to Ancient Egyptian slots.
Of course, there are many, many more great Ancient Egyptian themed slots and you’ll find plenty more great games across all themes by visiting the online slot section of our site.
