Coins of Egypt - another slot on the theme of ancient Egypt. Like many other NetEnt products, it is made in a futuristic style, as can be seen from ancient memorials made of metal and robot-like characters, somewhat reminiscent of the heroes of the Stargate movie. This is a bright and vibrant world that is not similar to other slots on a similar theme.
Coins of Egypt - Graphics, sounds and animations
The slot is an impressive visual style, as well as an abundance of filigree elements of gold in the design. The drums are built into a huge wall above the players. At the same time, they taper upward, making you feel like an ant crawling under something grand and incomprehensible. One of the characters in the game is a bird with a mirror in its hands. The game takes place under the standard music of the Middle East, while the dramatic drumming that accompanies the rotation of the drums gives charm to the slot. All this contributes to immersion in the game and makes the players feel like the inhabitants of the ancient world, where there are gods with the heads of animals and believe in the reality of what is happening. At the same time, the game is notable for the high quality of animation, which is typical for all NetEnt products. Overall, Coins of Egypt is an impressive example of great design work.
Coins of Egypt Gameplay
The gameplay is relatively simple, given the amount of work done by the designers to make this slot different from other visual points of view. Here are five drums with three rows of symbols and a Collect symbol with the image of the pharaoh (see below for a detailed description). The game has a good pace, the fast rotation function is clear and convenient (just double click on the spin button), but the lack of additional functions is a disadvantage.
Coins of Egypt - Wilds, bonuses and free spins
At each back, a number from one to three appears on the first three reels, meaning the number of coins. The denomination of these coins will be equal to the rate multiplied by any number from 2 to 15. The player will receive the corresponding winnings from the spin when the Collect symbol appears on the fifth reel. Wild, which depicts a beautiful gilded beetle, replaces all the characters in the game, except for Scatter and Collect. A scatter of three symbols starts the bonus round with free spins. It all starts with the fact that all coins with pharaohs fall into one of three chests, which are activated during free spins. During free spins on the fifth reel, a seal may appear, which will move to the appropriate chest along with the coins present on the reels during spins. When there are three seals in the chest, at the end of the bonus round, the player will be able to pick up this chest. The remaining two chests go out of the game, and the gameplay returns to normal.
Bets, RTP and Variance
The payout percentage at Coins of Egypt is 96.97%. This is above average and adds points in favor of the slot. However, points earned by RTP endanger the low volatility of the Coins of Egypt slot. We always prefer slots with higher variance, because they are best suited for our recommended strategies. On the site where we tested the slot, it was possible to bet from £ / $ / € 0.20 per spin, but not more than £ / $ / € 200 per spin.
General verdict Coins of Egypt is a slot in the style of Egypt, which captivates with its magnificent appearance. Its only drawback is volatility, which is not suitable for the strategies we usually recommend.
Like many NetEnt slots, from a technical point of view, Coins of Egypt is almost perfect. The visual style and unique world created by designers represent a new look on a familiar topic. This slot also has a decent payout percentage, so if it were not for the disappointingly low volatility, we would gladly recommend it for the game. Thus, it is an excellent slot, but it does not meet our requirements for the technical component.
