Egyptian Rise slot from NextGen GamingThere’s a brand new Egyptian-themed slot in town, but Egyptian Rise may not be what you expect. Take an in-depth look at this new NextGen Gaming creation and discover a whole new world of winning.
 

First impressions

The first thing you may notice when playing this new online slot is that it’s not what you’d first think of when picturing Egypt.
 

There are no dusty deserts or sandy pyramids featured here. Instead what you’ll see are bright, neon lights and shining stars.

While not the norm for Egyptian-themed slots, Egyptian Rise is a pleasant change of pace. The soundtrack is also a subtle take on Egyptian music and is very pleasant to listen to while playing. While it’s possible to easily mute the music and drum beats, you’ll probably want to keep it playing in the background.
 

Playing Egyptian Rise

Besides the bright lights and sparkle of stars, Egyptian Rise is a 5-reel slot with 243 ways to win. The default bet is set at €4, but it’s easy to change what you wish to bet. Simply click the bet up or down arrows next to the total bet amount or click the stack of coins to set the maximum bet.

The reels are covered in well-known symbols that, even when depicted in neon lights, you’ll recognise as being an Egyptian Pharaoh, Queen Nefertiti, an ancient bird, the Eye of Horace, and more. You can also land the Wild Scarab symbol which substitutes for all symbols and can increase your wins by up to 5x.

A fun added feature is the ability to gamble your cash after each winning spin. Clicking the gamble button which appears in the bottom right corner will take you to a new screen. This screen will feature the Wild Scarab in the center and a few choices for you make. If you wish to take the chance of doubling your cash, take your pick of either red or black. If you consider yourself a little luckier and you want to quadruple your winnings, choose between one of the four card suits on offer. You can also choose to walk away from this screen and simply take your winnings.
 

Special features

There are many ways to win when playing Egyptian Rise, but one of the most exciting ways must be via the On a Roll Pharaoh Feature. Each time you spin the reels and land a win, you’ll receive 1 notch on the Pharaoh Feature and an automatic re-spin. Land 4 wins in a row and you’ll be rewarded with Free Games! There’s also the ability to randomly trigger Wild Scarabs when landing a winning spin. Prepare yourself for bright flashes and quite a bit of excitement. The fun continues during the Free Spins round when the game adds an extra 5 Wild Scarabs to the reels!

If you manage to play the Free Games round, you can keep track of how many Free Spins you have left by watching the 3 Pharaoh symbols on the right of the game disappear. Each time you land a non-winning spin, one of the Pharaohs will disappear for good.

After the first winning spin, Wild Scarabs will appear on the 3rd reel. After two wins, Wild Scarabs will appear on reels 2, 3 and 4. Once you’ve landed three lucky spins in a row, the Wild Scarab symbols will appear on all reels. 

Thanks to the On a Roll feature and Wild Scarabs, the winning possibilities of Egyptian Rise are very impressive. You can take home up to 194,400 coins in the base game alone!

Whether you’re a fan of Egyptian-themed slots or not, Egyptian Rise is a new twist on an old classic that should definitely not be missed.
