Crown of Egypt Slot Review

What is this mobile slot about?

The second of IGT’s 1024 ways to win mobile casino slots, this Crown of Egypt slot is as much fun as it’s big Greek sister, Treasures of Troy.

Sometimes we wish we could understand IGT’s logic. They give us the mediocre looking mobile slots like Da Vinci’s Diamonds and Kitty Glitter, great mechanics but hope we don’t notice how ugly they look on a screen larger than your thumb, and then we get Crown of Egypt mobile slot. Which is so beautiful we could cry.

Ok perhaps we are exaggerating a little, but this is one gorgeous looking mobile video slot, with realistic characters in the Pharaohs and Egyptian gods littering the 5×4 reels. Yeap, 5×4; leading to the 1024 multi-ways to win we mentioned earlier. It not only looks good, but Crown of Egypt slot game plays incredibly well, fast, and with interesting graphics flashing on the screen with every win. The sounds are your fairly standard “I think that’s an Egyptian flute/ drum/ maracas” that is expected for any Egyptian themed casino slot, so nothing incredibly exciting, but reassuringly familiar.

All about the Multi-ways

The Multi-Way win is the real draw for this casino game, let’s be honest. Working more or less the same way as Treasures of Troy mobile slot, you’ll have to read through our explanation in the features below if you really want to know the details, but essentially, your whole reels could be covered head to toe with symbols for big wins.

Because in fact we get some of our bigger wins through the main game feature than we do on the elusive Free Spins bonus feature, due exactly to the multi-way. But that’s ok because the MultiWay is the star of the show anyway, causing this low/medium volatility mobile slot to give you far bigger wins than expected. Sure, these only tend to be about 50x your bet, but with a few lucky spins you could find yourself way ahead of the rest.

Ultimately, Crown of Egypt online slot is not for the faint of heart – you’ll have to be willing to be in for the long term to win big and there is no guarantee you’ll come up on top. In short, watch your budget careful, and try and stay in the game for at least a minimum of 200 spins.  You may be lucky early on, but if your not, you could be waiting for the Egyptian empire to return.

In-game bonus features

MultiWay Xtra Pays: Don’t despair when you first read this feature. It looks devilish, and it is, but it’s in your favour. Basically the paylines are not just left to right, but also up and down the reel columns themselves. You need only the same symbol to appear on four or five columns, anywhere on the columns, to get a multi-way payline. You then have to count each of the symbols on each of the columns and multiply them together.

So if you get 2 Jacks in column 1, 1 Jack in column 2, 3 Jacks in column 3 and 2 Jacks in column 4… you’ll get 2x1x3x2 = 12. As the Jack has a value of ’10x’, you then times 12×10 giving you a win of… 120 coins. The games will do it for you, so clearly you don’t need to figure out the maths, but its good to understand the idea behind the MultiWay approach as this is the feature that will hit the more frequently and get you the big wins.

Free Spins Bonus: Get two or more Bonus symbols on any of the centre columns and you’ll get free spins. 2 bonus symbols gets you 10 free spins, 3 will get you 15 free spins and 4 will get you 20 free spins. These can be re-triggered, but we’ve never encountered it, so it’s not incredibly likely to happen.

Theoretically (ie. shuffling a pack of cards and getting it back in order by suit and numbers theoretically) you can get up to 130 free spins in re-triggers. With the multiway win there is no additional multiplier, although technically you could consider any of the characters to be multipliers, up to a massive 500x (but more likely 10x or at best 40x your bet).

Closing thoughts

For all player types who want an action packed time, Crown of Egypt mobile slot is an excellent choice. Low to medium volatility with a 95.03% payout rate, you have to be a little careful with your budget to ensure you can keep playing to hit the big Multi-Way Extra Wins on offer, but when you do it can be worthwhile.

Similar in mechanics to Treasures of Troy, if you like the Roman themed mobile slot and looking to go further afield in the ancient civilisations, why not Egypt? It is by far one of the best IGT mobile slots on offer today.
