Egyptian Heroes™ isn’t the first video slot based on ancient Egypt. You find the pyramids, the hieroglyphs, the Pharaohs and the precious treasures Egypt has to hide in many slots.
Is Egyptian Heroes™ just another Egypt based video slot? Yes and no. Yes, because it is another video slot based on the history of Egypt. No because it’s not just another video slot.
If familiar with the NetEnt video slots, you know by now they don’t design just video slots. NetEnt doesn’t launch one game without the potential to become one of their biggest success stories. The same goes for Egyptian Heroes™ and soon you realize it isn’t one of these boring Egyptian slots you’ve seen before. NetEnt, as usual, went a step further to bring a dose of originality into the historic, but over-exploited Egypt theme.
Why is Egyptian Heroes™ different
The original part of this game comes from the symbols. For once, it’s not the pyramids, scarabs and hieroglyphs that play the leading role. It’s the Egyptian Heroes, the Egyptian Gods including Ra, and the sun god of Ancient Egypt.
But also Tefnut appears on the reels, the goddess of moisture, humidity and water, shown to the public as a woman with a lion’s head, but rarely ever shown as a woman.
Also, Tefnut is available with the solar disk and uraeus, linking her with the sun. Another recognisable Egyptian hero is Sobek, associated with the Nile crocodile, pharaonic power, fertility, and military prowess, but served mainly as a protector against the dangers presented by the Nile river. In the Egyptian Heroes video slot though, they only have on main function, to provide the highest wins possible.
You never know what these Egyptian Heroes™ are capable of with their powers. Eventually, it’s your total bet that has the biggest influence on your winnings. The higher the bet, the higher the winnings, but first it’s up to you to decide whether you want to play with all bet lines. I always recommend you to do so, but you can also activate just one or a few.
If you activate them all, you’ll play with 20 bet lines and a minimum bet of 0.20. Increase your bet steadily thanks to the ten different levels and the six coin values going up to 0.50. If you activate all bet lines, levels and the highest coins, you end up with a total bet of 100.00.
Egyptian Heroes™ features
As Egyptian Heroes can be called innovative, no ancient features can be found on the five reels. Far from it as Net Entertainment introduces the Golden Bet Line, a randomly selected bet line which has a random Multiplier ranging from x2 to x5. This outstanding extra feature is active on every spin without any additional costs to the player. Additional to the Golden Bet Line you’ll find features as the Wild, Scatter and Free Spins.
The win possibilities are further increased by additional features, including the Wild symbol. Although a Wild isn’t that innovative, it will be when it expands. This Wild symbol does when it appears on reels 2, 3 and 4.
Just as all Wild symbols in the Netent video slots, also this Wild, expanding or not, substitutes for all other symbols, except Scatter symbols.
Then, last but not least, there is the Scatter symbol of which three, four or five Scatters anywhere on the reels will trigger 10, 15 or 20 Free Spins, respectively.
Once Free Spins are triggered a Wild symbol occupies the entire middle reel with the result many lucrative wins will occur, no matter what your bet is. Additionally when these Wild symbols can complete winning bet lines, the Wild symbols expand on reels 2 and 4 as well.
Egyptian Heroes is just another Egypt themed video slot like The Secrets of Horus is one, including all-time favourite pyramids, scarabs and hieroglyphs on the symbols. This time the Egyptian gods from the past can be found on the symbols, definitely recommended if you like original high quality video slots, you love history or you are looking for innovative features. Thanks to the generosity, innovation and originality of Egyptian Heroes features, this video slot is promising some good entertainment to any type of player.
