Join the Egyptian god of the underworld in Osiris, a 5 reel, 50 payline video slot from NextGen Gaming and GamesLab. Featuring flashy design, it comes with a trio of free spins features where your winning chances are boosted by wild multipliers and sticky wilds. Stakes start at 50p per spin, rising to a maximum of £80.
Osiris has an ornate look – an intricately designed chamber forms the backdrop to the reels which include Arabian style playing cards, a palace, a Tutankhamun-style burial mask and a black cat. The Cleopatra figure is the top paying symbol, awarding 200 coins for a 5 on a payline combo. Landing on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 only, Ausir is the wild – he doesn’t offer any specific pays but he does substitute for all other symbols apart from the scatter.
Land 3 or more of the scatter (the Osiris logo) and you’ll trigger the bonus round. If you land 3 scatters, you’ll be awarded a re-spin with the scatters locked in place. This gives you a second chance to land 4 or 5 scatters and the better bonus features that comes with them.
- Ausir feature – the basic bonus round comes when you land the minimum 3 scatters. 9 free spins are awarded. If you land a winner that includes a wild, the payout is trebled. Land 3 scatters and another 9 free spins are added to your total.
- Wild Magic feature – you’ll need to hit 4 scatters to trigger this round. 9 spins are again awarded. On the first free spin, an Ausir wild is added to the middle position on reel 5. On each free spin that follows, another sticky wild is added. You can re-trigger another round of free spins here too if the scatters fall nicely.
- Underworld feature – the best of the feature is triggered with 5 scatters. A sticky wild is added on each free spin. Furthermore, any winners that include a wild benefit from the 3x multiplier and are trebled. Land 3 scatters and you’ll re-trigger more free spins.
The casino shelves are packed full of Egyptian-themed action and trying to do something that stands out can be tricky. Osiris is a little unusual both in terms of design and features. We didn’t find much success with the minimum Ausir feature but enjoyed the other 2 bonus features much more. They’re not the easiest to trigger but offer plenty of action when they do hit.
Osiris was the Egyptian god of the dead. Thanks to the bonus rounds, the video slot that bears his name is anything but deadly. If you like the theme, you could try your luck at the volatile Book of Ra Deluxe 6 from Novomatic.
