Ancient Egypt is a surprisingly common theme for video slots and Egyptian Heroes tries to put a subtle twist on the theme. All the gods and deities of Ancient Egypt feature with reel symbols including Ra, Bastet, Hathor, Osiris, Sobek and generic playing card symbols from Aces to Tens all present. The best-paying of the regular reel symbols is Ra, with 4000 coins being earned if 5 of them should spin into an active pay-line. The next best-paying regular reel symbol is the Bastet, which will be worth 2,000 coins if you spin 5 in on an active pay-line.
Net Entertainment have been making a big effort to include innovative features in many of their recent releases and Egyptian Heroes is no exception. This game has a Golden Bet Line feature. Before each turn, one of the pay-lines will be highlighted at random. At the top corner of the screen, the Golden Bet Line Multiplier is shown. The Multiplier changes from turn to turn and will always be between X2 and X5. If you happen to have a winning combination on the highlighted pay-line during your turn, the Multiplier is applied to the winnings. This means that there is the potential to win up to 20,000 coins if you spin in 5 Ra symbols on the Golden Bet Line.
The Pyramid symbol in Egyptian Heroes is Wild and it will substitute for all other symbols except Scatters. The Pyramid Wild will also expand when it rolls on reels 2, 3 or 4.
The Pharaoh’s Tomb symbol is a Scatter and it will help to unlock a Free Spins Bonus Round. 3 Pharaoh’s Toms will earn you 10 Free Spins, 4 Scatters will get you 15 Free Spin and 5 will land you 20 Free Spins. A Sticky Expanded Wild will cover Reel 3 for the duration of the Free Spins Round, while any Wilds on Reels 2 and 4 expand when completing winning combination. This means the Free Spins Round should see you earning some big bucks if you manage to unlock it.
The Return to Player (RTP) for Egyptian Heroes is 96.8%, which is very decent value for a Video Slot. The theme is not remarkable or original but, like many recent Net Entertainment games, it has a unique feature and the Golden Bet Line does add another dimension of excitement to the experience. With a large potential pay-out and good value to be had, it’s worth checking out.
