Playtech is adding yet another Egyptian themed slot to their portfolio. The Curse of Anubis is a follow-up to the successful “Khonsu God of Moon Mega Fire Blaze“. Featuring a background of mysterious pyramids, players are taken to the desert to find the various treasures out there while avoiding the “Curse of Anubis“.
Players are presented with an interesting grid. This is not the standard 5×3 setup. It has five reels but the rows are presented in a 3-4-4-4-3 setup. There are 50 ways to win with this interesting grid set up and a lot of players will be interested to see how the grid works. The large maximum cash jackpot of $37,500 is another incentive for players to spin the reels on this slot.
The card royals act as the low value symbols in this game while the Egyptian symbols act as the high value symbols. Some of these thematic symbols include ankhs. Scarabs, Horus and the Eye of Ra. The most rewarding of them is the scarab beetle that has a 150x payout. The god Anubis shows up and is the game’s Wild symbol. There is also a scatter symbol that helps with bonuses.
The betting range is rather huge in this game as it starts at $0.25 which is not surprising and is capped at $500. This is a very high betting limit and should attract high rollers who want to win big.
The game has the usual set of special features. The Wild Anubis symbol is there to help players win, substituting for all the regular symbols that the game has. The game also has a scatter symbol in the form of a sun rising over a pyramid. The Wild appears only in the three middle reels but it also provides an additional bonus. Players who score Wilds will also get a random multiplier. The maximum is up to 25x.
The scatters also only show up in the three middle reels. If scored, they trigger the Free Spins feature, which gives players 10 free spins. During these free spins, there are additional bonuses. For one, the wild will now appear on all reels. Additionally, when a Wild lands, a pink frame will appear in that position until the end of the free spins. Any Wild that lands again on that position will get a 10x boost to their multiplier. Players can potentially do it up to five times in that position.
Overall, the game is pretty fun and profitable with an RTP of 96.02 percent.
