Explore "Ancient Egypt", the Latest Cultural Slot from Pragmatic Play

Travel back in time into the impressive era of the ancient Egyptians, and collect the Pharaoh’s gold from where it’s hidden in the reels of the game!

Created by Pragmatic Play, Ancient Egypt is set in a luxurious world filled with ankhs, golden scarab beetles, gods, and goddesses. Oh – and bonuses! The soundtrack, mystical and oriental, invites the player into this magical ancient kingdom by the Nile river.

Ancient Egypt is the classical 5×3 slot with 10 paylines and several cool bonus features.


The theme revolves around the ancient kingdom of Egypt and the magnificence and opulence of its cultural heritage.

Gameplay and Layout

This 5×3 slot game has great graphics, with the reel edges wrapped in gold, with a regal purple dominating inside the reels. The symbols are colourful, and here too we have edges of gold – these gilded edges sparkle when they become a part of  winning line.

Almost all Pragmatic Play slots have the Quick Spin feature – Ancient Egypt is no different! The player places a bet, and then holds the space bar for short-duration spins which end when the key is released.

The average return to player is 96.13%. Also, the minimum bet is $0.10, with a maximum win of 250,000 coins. There is also a special bonus game featuring scarab beetles – more on that later. The game’s main symbols are as follows: 

  • Scarab beetle (wild and scatter)
  • Cleopatra
  • Anubis
  • Ankh
  • Eye of Horus
  • Standard set: A, K, Q, J, 10.

Special Features

Bonus Game

When you land three scarab beetles on the reels, you start the bonus game: here, you need to choose 1 out of the 3 presented chests. The possible wins are:

  • Free Spin Bonus – win 10 free spins with expanding symbols
  • High Award – win an award which is worth 10x to 500x of your total bet
  • Low Award – win an award which is worth 1x your total bet

Free Spins Bonus

If you get the free spin bonus, you are awarded 10 spins. One expanding symbol is also selected at random before you start spinning. After a winning combo, this symbol expands vertically until it covers all of the positions, providing an additional payout.

This feature can be extended if you land 3 scatter symbols during the round. This causes the whole round to start gain, with 10 extra spins and a new expanding symbol! 

Our Verdict

Honestly, despite being a relatively simple-looking game, we were impressed at how well it played. The bonus are fun, and even the base game action is entertaining. A solid effort from Pragmatic Play.
