There’s a huge number of Egypt-themed slots to be found online. They range from the mundane, to the adventurous, to the dark. Caravan to Cairo has somehow managed to establish itself without being considered a cut-and-pasted repetition. It’s silly, fun, and doesn’t take itself too seriously.
Even better, it offers 243 ways to win, as well as the chance to control the volatility of its spins once you activate the bonus round! Go exploring among the sand dunes and pyramids, searching for sphinxes and hidden treasures as you spin away at the reels.
Let’s dig beneath the sand, and see what Ancient Egypt has to offer us!
Gameplay & Layout
As you’d expect from an Eyecon game, there’s nothing spectacular about the graphics or animation – they don’t really have the budget or the expertise of a Netent or an Yggdrasil. The background is a giant Sphinx’s head, and a sea of sand dunes. As for the reels themselves, we’ve got a cartoonish banner with all of the simple characters painted on.
There is a sidebar with simple buttons for Autoplay, Spin, and varying the bet amount, while your wins and settings can be accessed above the reels.
Players can wager between $0.25 and $50 per spin, and the crocodile, snake, and elephant symbols are worth the most money. Well, following the Elephant (scatter worth 50x stake) and Pyramid (wild), which are the game’s most powerful special symbols.
The base gameplay doesn’t hold many surprises for players, and there are no special bonuses or payouts apart from the Free Games.
Players who manage to land 3 scatters will trigger the free games feature, for which players get to make their own choice of prize:
- 20 free spins with 2x multiplier
- 15 free spins with 3x multiplier
- 10 free spins with 4x multiplier
- 8 free spins with 5x multiplier
- 5 free spins with 10x multiplier
Of course it’s tempting to stick with the high number of spins, but even a single win with a 10x multiplier could be a game changer… As an added bonus, players can retrigger the free games up to 15 times by continuously landing 3 scatters with their spins!
Caravan to Cairo is definitely worthy of your attention, particular for those who get their kicks from the simple games. While we admit there’s nothing special or particularly eye-catching about the slot, it is enjoyable to play, and there’s no reason not to give it a thumbs up.
