Step into the glittering world of Egyptian royalty with a slot game set against a backdrop of a beautiful golden temple. The reels are purple in colour and display the card suits as symbols, as well as the jackal-headed god Anubis and the Eye of Ra.
At the top end of the paytable is Queen Cleopatra herself. She is the most generous symbol, rewarding with a whopping 500 times the original stake if 5 of her symbols land on a payline.
Another important symbol is the golden scarab, which has two functions on Ancient Egypt Classic. Read on the learn more about it.
The scarab beetle was hugely important in Egyptian culture and it has a big part to play in the Ancient Egypt Classic slot too.
The scarab acts as both a Scatter and a Wild, which means it can substitute for any other symbol on the reels. Hitting 5 of a kind will reward with x50 the initial stake. Landing 3 or more scarabs will also trigger the Bonus Game feature.
Bonus Game feature
When 3 or more scarabs appear on the reels, the player is transported deep into the heart of the pyramid to a chamber where the Bonus Game takes places. Three chests are presented and the player gets to select which one to open.
There are three prizes hidden in the chests. There is a small coin win (equal to the total stake), a larger coin win of between 10 and 500 times the total stake, and a round of free spins.

If 3 or more Scatters appear during the free rounds, 10 additional spins are added to the tally.
