Legacy of Egypt (Play’n GO): Introduction
Legacy of Egypt is a 5-reel, 3-row and 30 payline online slot playable from €0.30 to €90. The game includes a wild symbol (the Scarab) and a free-spin scatter symbol (the Pyramid). The wild symbol substitutes for any other reel symbol except the scatter symbols to help comprise winning combinations.
The Wild is the most valuable symbol and pays 16,6x for 5 of a kind. The most valuable regular symbol is Cleopatra which gives a return of 10x for 5 symbols across a payline. The other premium symbols are represented by Sobek (the ancient god of crocodiles), Anubis (the god of embalming and the dead), Ra (the sun god) and the Pharaoh (King of ancient Egypt).
Legacy of Egypt (Play’n GO): Free Spins
Three or more Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels will trigger the Wheel of the Gods – a spinning wheel which determines how many Free Spins are awarded. Players can initially win 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 15 or 20 Free Spins. At the start of each free spin a multiplier is awarded randomly and can be: 2x, 3x, 5x, 8x, or 10x.
Two Wild Scatter Symbols during a Free Spin will award Pyramid Spins – Free Spins within the Free Spin round, which retain the multiplier from the triggering spin. The amount of Pyramid Spins awarded is determined by the Wheel of the Gods and can be 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 or 8.
Three Wild Scatter Symbols during a Free Spin will award Pyramid Spins, but this time doubling the values on the Wheel of the Gods. Pyramid Spins can be triggered from within Pyramid Spins with the same conditions applied.
Legacy of Egypt (Play’n GO): Conclusion
Having recently reviewed Temple of Tut, another online slot with an ancient Egyptian theme that’s so horribly bad, Legacy of Egypt restored our faith in the classic theme!
We didn’t expect much from it when firing up the game and assumed it would be another typical 5-reeler in the style of Gold King. As it turns out, what we get is something completely different. It’s not that it feels particularly innovative, but it’s visually pleasing, runs seamlessly and has centered all the mass and power to a free spins game that seems incredibly potent!
Sure, the thing with the wheel and the multiplier is more or less taken from Montezuma, but we love that game and it is an old classic that works well still to this day, so why not implement it in a new game. Brilliant!
This online slot has a 96.5% RTP and a max win potential of 5,000x times the stake in the free spins game, which is similar to Book of Dead.
