Play ‘N Go’s Doom of Egypt Video Slot Review

Doom of Egypt: Demo

The classic ancient-themed video slot gets a rather creepy makeover courtesy of Play ’N Go in Doom of Egypt. It’s a 5 reel, 10 payline video slot that comes with the developer’s usual blend of visual flair, simple features and super volatile gameplay. Stakes here start from 10p and rise to £50 per spin.

Creepy design

Ancient Egyptian-themed video slots are often bright, colourful affairs. That’s not the case with Doom of Egypt which has a much darker and oppressive feel. If you’ve seen Play ’N Go’s Rise of Dead, you’ll have an idea of what to expect. On the reels you’ll see gold edged playing card symbols alongside a collection of animal deities and mummified pharaohs. The most lucrative symbol is the jackal god Anubis which pays 500 times your bet if you land 5 on a payline.

Scatter = Wild

The scarab beetle serves a dual role. As well as substituting for all the standard symbols, the wild also acts as the game’s scatter. Land 3, 4 or 5 of these anywhere on the reels on the same spin and you’ll trigger the game’s Free Spins feature. There’s also a payout equal to 2, 20 or 200 times your total bet.

10 free spins with expanding symbol

Once triggered, you can look forward to 10 free spins. Before they start, 1 symbol is randomly selected. This will be the expanding symbols for the duration of the free spins. Re-triggers are possible here meaning up to 20 free spins altogether.

Potential 5,000 x bet payouts

There are some potentially big rewards on offer from Doom of Egypt. A full screen of the top paying jackal (Anubis) in the feature will get you 5,000 times your bet. Play ’N Go has taken the gameplay from the hugely popular Rich Wilde and the Book of Dead video slot and combined it with the design from the sequel, Rise of Dead.

This mash up works very well. The gameplay is simple but potentially very explosive. Like most games from Play ’N Go, Doom of Egypt is an extremely volatile affair so you can expect some big bankroll swings. If you’ve enjoyed either of these ancient-themed titles, then Doom of Egypt should certainly appeal.
