Egyptian Heroes Pokies

Anyone who has even a casual interest in online casino pokie machines will have noticed that the topic of ancient Egypt is probably the most popular of all, and Swedish developer Net Ent are aiming to get to the top of the pyramid with their Egyptian Heroes video pokie. They have taken a slightly different approach to the subject however, giving the reels a strangely futuristic appearance that’s reminiscent of the film and TV series, Stargate. Surrounding the reels are some columns and above there’s the mysterious promise of Golden Bet multipliers which will be covered in a little bit.

The main characters that populate this world are also not the usual Egyptian icons of scarab beetles, eyes and hieroglyphics, instead we see a number of vengeful-looking Gods, along with the high card symbols and bonus icons like a wild and scatter that trigger extra features.

It’s a 5-reel, 20-line game where landing the same symbol across the reels on an active payline will create a winning combination and the minimum stake has been set at just 0.01 per spin. This will activate a single line, so to get all of the game in play, we are looking at a low limit of 0.20, while the most that can be wagered is 100.00.

Playing Egyptian Heroes

A review of the pay table shows us that the 10 symbol, which is another slightly futuristic-looking icon, will pay 2x the line bet when it stops on reels 1, 2 and 3 across an active payline, while 4 of them are worth a payout of 10x and a full line equals a 30x award. The J, Q and K are worth steadily more, and the top card symbol is of course, the A returning wins of 8, 40 or 125x the line bet.

The heroes, each of which is holding a ball of energy for some reason that’s never explained, will bring bigger payouts when they land across the reels and only 2 on the first reels will be needed to create a winning combination. A green crocodile creature is worth between 2x and 500x when he stops on a line, and then we see a red deity, purple hero, a cat-lady and then a hawk/human symbol which pays out 8, 40, 200 or 4000x when he lands on 2, 3, 4 or 5 reels across an active line.

On each spin, a unique feature turns a single payline into a Golden Bet multiplier line and if a winning combination lands across it, the value will be boosted by an amount that can be between 1x and 5x. On average, 1 win in 20 should qualify for this, but it’s a random pick by the software, so players may get 2 in a row or none for ages. However often it happens, it’s a nice feature that’s sure to be seen on other Net Ent pokies before long.

Bonus Symbols

A pyramid is the wild symbol here, completing winning lines if it’s in the right place by acting as all except the scatter icon, appearing on reels 2, 3 or 4, whereupon it will expand to fill whichever reels it has landed on. It’s a useful feature although the wild isn’t worth anything on its own and just acts as a substitute for others.

Likewise, the scatter symbol of a Pharaoh mask doesn’t actually award any direct payments when it appears, but if 3, 4 or 5 of these symbols turn up in any positions at once, players are granted 10, 15 or 20 free spins respectively. Net Ent like to make their bonus games potentially more rewarding, so here the wild symbol fills the middle reel throughout the round, while any wilds on reels 2 and 4 will work as normal, expanding to cover all positions, which should help to ensure that gamblers end the round better off than when it started.

If 3 or more scatters turn up in a single free game, the free spins re-start once any left in the current feature have finished playing out.

The Verdict

Sci-fi and ancient history are an interesting mix across the Egyptian Heroes online pokie, giving it a nice style, while the extra features and reliable gameplay that comes as standard with Net Ent will certainly add to the appeal.

We liked the Golden Bet multiplier, although it’s possible to land a combination on the right line and still get the minimum 1x payout, however, with time most players should be able to grab some coins with this unique feature.

Free spins and expanding wilds are nothing unique, but are proven bonuses that all help to make this game a success, although unfortunately, like many Net Ent games, it isn’t mobile-optimised.
