Despite the fact that it doesn’t feature a progressive jackpot, the Throne of Egypt slot game is one of Microgaming’s top Egyptian-themed online slots. The game is a five-reel modern slot machine, featuring 25 pay-lines. The largest jackpot that one can take down in the game is a $10,000 whopper. The maximum number of coins one can bet on a spin is 125, but the largest coin size is $.20, which means that the maximum bet is $25.
The game features wild symbols, scatter symbols and it has a free spins round. The scarab symbol (ancient Egypt’s holly insect) triggers an attractive bonus round. The theme of the game makes it obvious that the symbols-set is drawn from the ancient Egyptian culture and its artifacts. The graphics of the game are quite impressive and the overall design is among Microgaming’s most inspired. The creators of the game have endowed the Throne of Egypt with a skill-based element: players can actually stop the reels when they see fit. In reality, this feature doesn’t really influence the outcome on the reels of course, but it does add a fun new layer to the game.
The scatter symbols are pretty rare, but when they strike they award the player 15 free spins. Winnings accumulated during the free spins are automatically doubled, a feature which turns the free spins round into a potentially highly profitable one.
The Eye of Ra symbol is the one that launches the bonus game. The bonus game is putting the player into the shoes of an archaeologist who has to unlock mysterious ancient Egyptian chambers by finding the keys under a selection of scarab beetle symbols. Getting past the first chamber lands the player in the Eagle bonus round. Successfully getting past that round launches the Princess bonus round. This round is all about uncovering as big a multiplier for the bonus round winnings as possible.
The bottom line: the game looks and feels nice and the atmosphere it generates is rather immersive indeed. While there are no progressive jackpots on this game, the features are plentiful and attractive.
Truly profitable online poker players simply do not play without a poker loyalty deal backing them up these days. It just doesn’t make any sense to do so with the abundance of poker rakeback and poker prop deals available.
